Thanks to the wonderful ladies on the fabulous Facebook group Run Mummy Run (yes, I know I’m not a mummy, but they are a very friendly lot, and they let us non-mummies take part 😉 ) I found myself rushing to Aldi last Friday night.
Now, I don’t usually find myself rushing out to discount supermarkets very often, especially not on a Friday evening, when I have wine chilling in the fridge.
But, I had read on a few of the member’s posts that they had a fab, and pretty cheap, range of running gear for the winter on sale. WHAT? Yes. Exactly.
Now I’m sure you understand why this led to me cancelling all other plans, and instructing @TheWelshWookie to drive the 1 1/4 hours to Oban, home of our nearest Aldi.
Because that’s exactly what we did.
A fetching fluorescent yellow technical Tshirt, a pink long sleeved compression top, a grey/pink compession base layer set ( shorts and vest), a pair of short compression socks and some fuorescent armbands, with LED lights. Bargain!
@TheWelshWookie also got a ton of stuff.
I’m looking forward to road testing it, so I’ll keep you posted as to how I find it!
