Elle About Town, September 2014

The last month has been busy for sure with Hen Do’s abroad, work, training and finding a balance between Whole30 and everyday life! Not much else has been going on but I do have a couple of little updates to share with you…

Special: VeloVixen Next Top Model Photoshoot   

I just spent the most fulfilled, jam-packed day in Oxford shooting for VeloVixen! I was lucky enough to win their Next Top Model Competition earlier this month and spent the last couple of weeks looking forward to this day.

Even after a 5am alarm, I had such fun shooting road bike scenes, lifestyle scenes and other shots with Gemma and Charlie. I even got to take a peek in VeloVixen HQ – which may be a bad thing for my credit card as seeing everything in real life made me love it all more!

I spotted this bag a short while ago and fell in love with it all over again…

Classes: Crossfit Level 2

Now the London Duathlon is over, I’ve decided to up my Crossfit game just a little! I plan on attending two classes per week to my schedule and maybe even up to three per week when my body says it could possibly handle that!

Did someone say an 8 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) of burpee box jump overs?! Yup! …I actually lost count at 11, but I figured I came in around 39 so at least it gives me something to beat next time!

We also practiced Overhead Squats in this session as well as handstands. I am still planning on trying out the adult gymnastics class to help me over the fear and get me into an unsupported handstand!

Watch this space 🙂

Coming Up….

Run or Dye London, 27th September 2014… 
Just one week left to go until my first ever Run or Dye. 5km of colour and fun with friends! Followed by a Dye Festival, I couldn’t think of a better way to get my weekend started!

    Elle you are hardcore, even the thought of cross fit brings on some mild DOMS for me…although did I hear a rumour that it was on the agenda for GymBox? That will be interesting 🙂

    What a fun photo shoot! This is a really dumb question but are you from England or did you move there?

      Not a stupid question at all! I was born in Barbados but I've been in the UK since I was 7yo! 🙂
