...well I was last week, until someone decided to send a ridiculous heatwave our way. Its time for me to stop sweating and start wearing proper footwear now, ok? These pics were taken last week when it was actually cold, at the mo we're having a kind of warmish rainy weekend, perfect for me cycling everywhere thanks to the car failing its MOT... Collecting it tomorrow so hoping I don't faint when the mechanic tells me the price ;)

Vest - H&M
Skirt - Principles at Debenhams
Boots - M&S
I like those outfits where you don't really have to think about it, I just felt like black was the way to go with this skirt so it all came together rather easily for a change...
Totally thought I'd somehow got dressed in all new clothing, rather unlike me, but I did have a charity shop necklace on, yeah!
Yet another tip for growing out hair, stick a bow in. Bonus points if it came from the kiddie department of your fave store.
Since I've been skiving off blogging lately I thought I'd show you what I've actually been doing... But taking pics of intensive digital installation and training at work was not really that fun, so instead I captured the better moments - rewatching Baz Luhrmann's Red Carpet Trilogy for the millionth time, and working out in my new, specially fitted running shoes! The latter would probably have went better if I wasn't trying to power thru a damaged left leg that now shoots pain every time I bend down...faff...
The story of my shoes is fun though - I got a money off voucher for a Glasgow sports store for doing the 10K a few weeks ago, so I decided to it was time to get proper running shoes. I've been plagued with injuries right from when I started running years ago, and its getting a little old - surely I should be good at this by now right?! Anyway off I went to the shop first thing on Sunday when the town was nice and deserted, my fave time to shop. In order to gauge my running style, the guy in store had me run on a treadmill with bare feet first, then they play it back to you to show where you're putting your weight and such - turns out I run slightly on the inside of my feet and am heavy on my heels, so I got shoes with built up inners and a cushioned heel. Then you run in a couple of different styles and pick the best ones. Mine feel like slippers, all soft inside, I love them! Plus they have lime green laces, totally stylish ;)
Now I just have to shake the leg hurt and we'll see how well they really work. Test No2 is coming tomorrow, provided I haven't had a rage and decided to sell my car...
Anyone else had the trainer fitting done successfully?
