Last year I found myself in a rut when it came to exercise. Previously I had religiously gone on 12km walks and occasionally ran, but it got to the point where I couldn't handle how mind numbing it was. I couldn't stand the sight of my spin bike or treadmill and the thought of spending an hour each day on something so tedious. I don't hate exercise, I just hate being bored! However in a desperate attempt to get fitter, with it being the new year and all (what a cliche!) I ended up joining a gym for real this time, and getting a membership at a swimming pool and tennis court.
I've learned now that for me to be able to exercise I really need to mix it up instead of doing the same thing over and over again, and so far it's working! I am really enjoying playing tennis in the mornings and swimming laps at night. The best thing is that all of these facilities are on my university campus so that I can't use the excuse of being too busy with uni and work not to exercise.
Since I am playing tennis a lot I figured I might start posting some of the vintage inspired athletic outfits that I have been wearing lately! Both this top and shorts are by British vintage reproduction brands; Freddies of Pinewood and Tara Starlet. This top is made of the softest material that is extremely comfortable, and the shorts are nice and stretchy and easy to move in - perfect for running back and forth on the tennis court! However I will note that these are not the shoes that I wear when I play, I brought them with me to change into this morning to do the grocery shopping in afterwards. Normally I wear my not so glamorous, well worn pair of Asics sneakers.
