Run Shopping Run

Posted on

 

I'm a hopeless competitor. Give me any situation and I can see a way to crown a winner. Mind you, most of the time the other competitors have no idea they're in a race. All they see is some idiot rushing up the stairs, piling on an obscene amount of food at the buffet or whizzing through the supermarket checkouts without any care for what goes in which bag.

 

Now the most competitive of occasions is almost upon us, I've thought of a new way to win – Christmas run-shopping. Not only can you brag about the number of cards you've received, the number of presents you've bought and the brussels sprouts you've hidden, you can now boast your shopping speed.

 

Christmas shopping is quite the endurance task. You fight against crowds, impatient queues, who-should-get-what dilemmas and walk for miles along high streets and in department stores.

 

So what if you ran?

 

Granted, Granny's bubble bath will be a little shaken up and those biscuits may look a little misshapen but it would be so much quicker!

 

It's a tried and tested method. I successfully bought two birthday, one christening and a fathers' day present all in forty minutes thanks to the run-shop method. Considering most of that was deliberating time, I'd say that was pretty good.

 

This is one occasion you dont want to run like you stole it’ – unless of course you want the extra motivation of a big burley security guard chasing after you but sprinting between shops could definitely count as intervals. Youll also get the bonus of agility training as you dodge around shoppers and weight training as your bag slowly gets heavier with your gifts.

 

Clever Christmas shopping requires multi-tasking. It doesnt get better than combining vomit-inducing interval training and soul-sapping Christmas shopping, two of the nastier chores, to create something thats actually quite fun.

Great service

I found the size was not right and had no problems exchanging

Cushion running socks

Brilliant!!! Comfortable and supportive

Best Trisuit I ever owned

I used this trisuit for the first time during the Dubai 70.3 and have never been more comfortable during a race. No shavings nothing. It fits perfectly, dries super quick is a perfect all-rounder.

Very comfy

I never had thick socks before but do like the feeling of these. They consist of a more slinky inner sock and a nice cushy one outside. You need to pay attention to pulling them on without creases but then they are wonderful. If you are a runner that likes tighter fitting shoes, they might not work for you. I have some shoes where my feet get too squashed but in slightly larger shoes they are my go too socks. Will order some more to be less dependent of one pair of runderwear socks in my repertoire

Bra to small

While I did order the larger size it is still too small. I ordered the same size in the full sports bra which fits fine. This cut does not fit.
