Yesterday the very mad but lovely Carla drove to mine so we could go for a run together. Mad- as she lives at least an hour away and was driving home again after, only to return to the area tomorrow! (see I told you she was mad!) Lovely-as she is.
The original plan was to run 10 plus miles, this was shortened due to lack of running on both our parts and then altered again on the day as running by the River Chelmer would have been treacherous and foolish.
It was fantastic to run with her again and to catch up on all her running and non running news. We survived puddles, very wet conditions, muddy paths, two yappy ankle biting dogs and even managed to keep going past the Beer festival (a first for Carla, maybe?!)
Fortunately the hot in the Zaggora ones does not mean bum hanging out hot (thank goodness), but hot sweaty hot. These capris increase your body temperature and in theory your metabolism so increasing weight loss. They landed on my door step this week and were not a bit as expected. Think wet suit capris and you would be on the right track. I was worried about what they would be like to run in but as it was raining yesterday I thought it would be a perfect time to give them a go. The other 70’s link is that when you walk in them they are noisy (for those who remember corduroys), I thought this was be annoying but did not notice it on the run. They were amazingly comfortable and were a lot better than I anticipated they would be.
One down side was on taking them off I was very sweaty with very drenched knickers, so today I decided to go Commando-bad idea as this causes chaffing! There is one place you do not want to chaff and it is there, a quick pitt stop in to the Golden Arches to avail myself of their loo roll to stuff for comfort then I was able to continue.
I do hope their claim of a reduction of two dress sizes in two weeks is not an exaggeration but feel it might be I will keep you posted.
8 miles yesterday 6 today maybe my running is back on track……..
