Juneathon Day 3: Bouncy (but not bouncy)

It’s Friday already! I have the prospect of sitting in the garden with a beer and a barbecue tonight and a lovely weekend spending time with various family and friends, so getting out of bed at 5.30 had a certain amount more bounce this morning. It helps that the weather is gorgeous (far too nice to go to work) as well.

I might have got out of bed with bounce, but that was as far as it went in certain other areas. I tweeted yesterday that the postie had brought me my regular Graze box (you can use this code 8DZG6MM if you fancy trying one for free and your second half price)  and a new sports bra off of ebay. There’s been some discussion about foundation garments on Twitter recently when Thigh Will Be Gone was after suggestions for brands and I replied that I’m now in Shock Absorber camp. Shock Absorbers generally don’t come cheap, (I was lured in with them when they were on sale at Debenhams – in fact I blogged about it back in Janathon. In fact, I’ve just realised that I got new bras on Day 3 of Janathon and now I have new bra on Day 3 of Juneathon – oooh, spooky) and I know that along with trainers, they’re the most important part of my kit, but I resent having to buy them (see also my post about the similarities between pointing and sports bras).

After a bit of googling, I discovered the B109, which is an earlier version of the N109 style that I normally wear (I don’t know what happened to 109s C through M, I don’t think that we speak of them any more). I’m not sure what the technical differences are, but as far I can tell the B109 has a sparkly label instead of a rubbery label, seems to be made of slightly softer fabric and hoiks things up a bit further the N109. I did the jump test in the kitchen before setting off and after doing a 3 mile run with some intervals thrown in,  it’s proved to be comfy and kept everything under control. I just need you all to promise that you won’t mock me for wearing last season’s bra (the shame).

The best bit of the bra is the label:

Get ready for the science bit...

More specifically, the activity level guide at the bottom that I think translates from left to right as Prance, Thrust, Leap, Yogic Flying.

    Who knew bras were so technical, me a I like one that does not look like a straight jacket and you need a degreee in rocket science to get in and out of it! Simples is best

    Sorry, I seem to have a filter than zones me out when women’s personal bits are mentioned. Did you write a post there or did I miss it?!
