Elle About Town, January 2015

It’s 2015 and activities are in full swing! With so much exciting stuff going on, this is my space to share with you! 

Social: Bounce, Holborn

Table tennis, food and drink. Sounds like the perfect evening for us! One of my work Christmas do’s took place at Bounce – somewhere I’ve wanted to check out since it opened. I had a quick go at the TT but chose to focus more on the food – pizza and nibbles, oh and the low calorie beer. Would be a perfect spot to get social in groups of 4 – 6 to keep it intimate!

Events: Park Run, Peckham Rye

I made it back to Park Run on New Years Day! I incorporated the 5km event into my mileage for the day to make for a perfect start to 2015!

Events: Battersea 10km with RunThrough 

Another race incorporated into my training was the Battersea 10km. I had 9.7km planned for the day so it worked well! 4 laps of the course which was flat and sunny with a few of the Team Naturally Run crew at a beautifully slow pace was worth it for the medal. A mini replica of the Battersea Power Station (which is under demolition and currently only has 3 towers, not 4).

Lifestyle: Passion Planner 

My Passion Planner for 2015 arrived! HOORAY! Now it’s time to get on with creating the life I want to live! I even celebrated and bought some new pretty highlighters from Muji! I’m working on redoing my goals – 3 month, 1 year etc etc as well as focusing week to week. I’ve scribbled my Half Marathon training plan into it already as that’s one of the big goals I’m working on for 2015.

Classes: ELLE Fit with Sweaty Betty 

I spotted this class last year and booked immediately! A Pilates class in one of the Sweaty Betty stores (I attended Jubilee Gardens, Canary Wharf) and an epic goody bag for £15. I’m not a huge fan of mat Pilates but after attending this class I realised I may have misjudged it. It was definitely a workout, just not a jump around like a crazy cat kinda workout. It was tough. And I loved it.

Coming Up….

Finally, I get to get the glow sticks out, rave and call it a workout! YES! Friday 23rd January at Pineapple Dance Studios…a tenner {Book here} and join in on the fun?!

NTC Week Yoga 

I didn’t secure a spot for any of the original exclusive classes but I did get an invite for a secret NTC Yoga class. Just what I need to be fair – more yoga in my life.

London Winter Run
