If you already feel like you have been dosed up with Olympic fever then here’s another spoonful,
sorry, not sorry! The Olympics has to be my
favourite event of the sporting calendar, and I don’t know about you, but I
always find those 16 days of blood, sweat and tears (on the competitors part,
of course) inspires me as a spectator to get out and shed a bit more sweat of
my own . The excuses to avoid a workout tend to be few and far between, and I
seem to have much more of a can-do attitude when it comes to exercising, during
the Olympic period. What about you?
Out of all the events, I’m most looking forward to the track athletics; it’s quite nostalgic for me to watch having spent most of my teenage years as a young competing athlete for my local athletics club, Birchfield Harriers, running the 100m and 200m, and, on occasion the 400m and hurdles. Regrettably, I gave it all up when I went to university and never looked back, much to my parent's disappointment, I think.
For this week’s post, I paid a little homage to Rio 2016 by visiting my old track at Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium where I used to run - and where the professional athletes competed in June this year (at the British Athletics Championships) for a place on the British Athletics team for the Olympic Games – and donned my new Stella McCartney x Adidas kicks, which are the most comfortable trainers I’ve ever owned, albeit the most expensive!
