moulin rougeJust added a few new songs to my running playlist as there was going to be Madness indeed if I listened to”Driving in my car ” or ” Embarrassment”  any longer!!

Britney Spears would indeed be hit one more time!!

I love, love, love Lady Marmalade, it was my on the bar dancing/drinking song in the fun old days before I became a boring arse!!

Coyote Ugly girl….That was me:)

I want to go to a Moulin Rouge party!!

Also found Peter Blakeley…”Crying in the Chapel” and added a few more Pink songs.

Pink is great to run to as she has a range of songs and speeds:)

Plus she is ballsy and you wouldn’t see her giving up on the hill run:)

Tonight I will search for a few more 80/90’s hots…

Part two later in the week when I do it…

I have kept it pretty simple, still using Michelle Bridges outlines as a template.

She has a 4 day ‘Hard and heavy ‘ weights program and I did it for 2-3 weeks but its not me.

Too much weights.

My program is running related and will benefit me in that direction.

You will notice a lot of single leg work:)

You definitely need to do weights for running as it helps strengthen you, gives your body great definition/tone and makes your body a fat burning machine:)

2 days maybe 3 is the max for weights for me .

 I like things where you work with your own bodyweight or exercises that are easily adapted to not having a gym.

I am not a gym bunny as you know, and only do weights etc so I CAN RUN injury free but there are definite advantages to weights.

Linda Hamilton’s arms for example!!

Linda's arms will be mine!!!
