So, you’ve got your technical workout gear sorted, but as the old saying goes, it’s what’s underneath that counts. Good underwear, in stretchy, sweat-wicking fabrics, will give the ultimate support and comfort as you bounce around the badminton court or pound the streets. Lingerie brand Empreinte has released an exciting new collection, IN-PULSE, intertwining the worlds of fashion and sport. INITIALE – its first sport release – features a lightweight yet supportive seamless bra, a chic shorty and attractive quick-drying leggings, available in dark intense gray or ‘bubble pink’.
Blending performance with comfort, and a feminine edge, the activewear trio is the ultimate in sport chic!
Concerned that Cambridge charity Rowan (an arts centre for adults with learning disabilities) would miss out on vital fundraising during lockdown, its Chair, Rosalind Morgan, took to her bike to tackle an epic challenge. Rosalind decided to pedal the length of Britain, cycling the distance of John o’ Groats to Land’s End, on her home exercise bike. Nicknaming her challenge, the JOGLE, she set off on March 24, enlisting the help of friend Mary, to fill her in on fascinating landmarks along the virtual route.
On day 74 – June 5 – she reached her destination, clocking up 47 hours and 41 minutes in the saddle, covering 981.06 miles and burning 26,044 calories. Rosalind’s valiant efforts have so far raised more than £2,000. You can read about her lockdown achievement at rowanhumberstone.co.uk, and donate at localgiving.org/charity/rowan/.
