Morning Mist at Champneys, Tring.

Running Jacket – Pure Simple Sport c/o JD Sports    Leggings – Pure Simple Sport c/o JD Sports    Vest – Nike Dry Fit    Shoes – Nike free run +2

Last weekend I was lucky enough to spend the weekend at the picturesque Champney’s Spa Resort in Tring to give my two left feet a run for their money trialing their new dance fitness class FitSteps which is brought to you by Strictly Come Dancing’s Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe. But before I got my wiggle on, I decided to put my new running gear on from Pure Simple Sport and head out into the breath taking country side which surrounds Champney’s.

Being petite I find it a struggle to find leggings which make me feel secure whilst still enabling me to move freely whatever activity I am under taking and these leggings were the perfect tool for the country cardio I had in store. They have a large waistband to ensure my hearty breakfast bump wasn’t on show whilst also incorporating a generous leg length to protect my ankles from the bitter Autumn morning.
The running jacket was another god send and not something I had previously considered including in my outdoor cardio sessions, choosing to brave the cold until I finally get my blood flowing, but this jacket’s light weight fabric and cocoon like feel kept my body temperature much more bearable.
If you want to give the Pure Simple Sport collection a try it is available exclusively online at and across JD stores.
Make sure you pop by tomorrow to catch a glimpse of me strutting my stuff with FitSteps.

    Love your blog Lydia! Great pics 🙂 so great to see people inspired to run outside, it’s the best! Much better than treadmills. So please I’m able to run again – had to stop for 3 months whilst my ankle healed… torture! Liz x (
