Marathon Training Beginners Guide…
Tomorrow sees thousands of runners young, old, beginners, athletes descending on the streets of London, to take part in the Virgin London marathon. I have always loved watching the marathon hearing some of the amazing stories as to why some of them have decided to pick up their trainers. Whether they are running to complete a personal best time or maybe it’s because they are wanting to raise awareness for a charity that means something to them, whatever the reason it’s always an uplifting & motivating watch.
As much as I go the gym & train doing a variety of cardio & weight classes I have never been a runner, I despised it at school, cross country the thought of it used to fill me with dread.
But when watching the marathon it makes me really wish I could do one, but 26 miles boy is that some commitment, the training for it is insane & from friends who have done it, it can take over your life for a few months but what an achievement. So for anyone who is feeling inspired & wants to get out there & start training whether its for a marathon or a 5k well then this guide is perfect for you. I’m even tempted myself it’s definitely on my bucket list to complete one.

In My Wardrobe…
As much as I love a colourful bold print, I have endless florals in my wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with a simple neutral staples too. They are the foundation of your wardrobe & you can create multiple looks with just using the same one piece.
I love navy it’s a colour I find that you can wear in the Summer & Winter, it’s classic & works well on everyone. So when I came across this H&M dress I loved how it was essentially a simple cut navy dress but with a twist, the stunning sleeves oh wow they really are something else. I always think H&M are great for pieces like this, classic, elegant cut pieces that everybody needs but still having that fashion flare to them.
This piece I think is so versatile you can wear this for anything from a lunch date with a pair of flats, or even a pair of trainers if you want a more laid back effortless look. Or heading out for dinner, grab a statement clutch & a pair of pointed heels & you’r all ready & set to go. It’s definitely a piece that you can bring out & re-wear time & time again. AA x
