Before I share my eats from yesterday, let’s talk about the FUN stuff first…
Owning a pair of wellies is a MUST for London life.
It rains, a lot.
I knew I wanted some Hunter wellies but finding them was a bit frustrating.
That was until this week when I discovered Hunter’s 1st Global flagship store on Regent Street.
It just opened a month ago and it’s 3 floors of candy colored fabulousness!
Deciding on the color was the hard part…
But if you know me, you know that I love bright colors.
So, I had to go with the Bright Coral Tall Gloss.
They are pinker in person, this picture makes them look red.
Paired with my bright yellow pea coat, I’ll easy to spot in the grey/black/brown London crowd!
Now that I’ve got my wellie situation sorted, I had to buy something else.
Something I’ve never had to buy before, ever.
Outdoor cold weather running leggings.
Baby, it’s cold outside…
Really cold and my capris are not cutting it anymore.
Especially since I got the green light yesterday to start my new training plan!
(blogging all about the whole experience, GAIT test, results and training plan tomorrow)
I ventured into my local Sweaty Betty store.
Sweaty Betty has been around for the past 16 years in the UK, it’s basically like the lululemon of the UK.
Lots of great clothes and in lots of great patterns and colors.
I headed to the outdoor running section and picked up a pair of compression distance running tights.
This was also the first time I’ve ever tried on compression tights…
WOWSA, they are.just like my knee high socks, except these are tight all over.
I think putting them on is your pre-workout.
Once on though they feel fantastic, I’m all set for outdoor running now!
Happy WIAW everyone!
