Do you remember that line in the Baz Luhrmann Sunscreen song about your knees? “Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.” I’d never really registered the significance of it until the day, a few weeks ago, when my right knee “went”.
Confession time – I have a massive girl crush on Ellie Goulding. It’s been a slow grower. Yes, I thought her first singles were catchy. But when I really started to pay attention to her was when she began talking in interviews about her passion for running and when her Instagram feed began filling with pictures of her doing everything from planks to monkey bars to boxing. She started talking fitness before it became cool to talk fitness. And it was around then that I thought she was a “pop star” with a lot more about her.
So imagine my delight when I got invited to a special event earlier this week to launch her brand new Tighten + Tone workout for the Nike + Training Club App.
