ALEX MONROE 2

If you read my #From10StepsTo10K post, you’ll know that I’ve taken up the challenge to run in the Nike Women’s 10KM London on Sunday 21st June along with 9,999 other women. We’ll be taking over Victoria Park as part of the world’s largest ever Race Series, which will see runs taking place in 20 cities across the globe, from Hong Kong to Toronto.

TOMORROWLAND LOOKS BADASS!!

Payoff_-_UK

George Clooney; a bath space ship; and a coin that takes you to another dimension!

 Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

 Released here in the UK on 22nd May.

Ellie Goulding has launched a new work out on the N+TC App (yes, that’s the singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding) and to celebrate this I was invited to an exclusive event where Ellie performed an acoustic set, and lead us all in her intense workout!

Let me start by saying, the event was like no other event I’ve been to – which is a good thing.

FROM 10 STEPS TO 10K: NIKE RUNNING HAUL

FROM 10 STEPS TO 10K NIKE RUNNING HAUL COVER

I’ve been asked to take part in a 10K run with Nike this summer, which is great, only I don’t run, and have never ran. I’ve accepted the challenge and have 3 months in which to go from 10 steps to 10K!

See my Nike Running haul, and my freak out at the idea of training for a 10K run, it might not be a marathon, but right now it sure feels like it!

NTC WEEK LONDON – YOGA IN THE HOT POD

DSC_0630

You know I mentioned the whole looking/feeling sexy while naked thing here, at the moment I just about look good in a chunky knit!  Well last week I attended the NTC Week London Yoga Session in the Bay Sixty6 skate park over near Notting Hill.

I know you’re probably thinking ‘yoga in a skate park, in damn near sub zero temperature?!’, well at least that’s what I thought.  I don’t even go for a run when it’s cold (I don’t even really run unless it’s summer time, then I’ll go for a light jog).  However the yoga class was held in the middle of the skate park, but it took place inside a giant puffer jacket like tent that zipped all the way up – they call this contraption the Hot Pod.
