Reliving Olympic Fever At The London Anniversary Games

I am stunned. Some how I have managed to buy tickets for the Sainsbury’s London Anniversary Games in July. I am even more thrilled that I was able to buy enough tickets for the whole family to go. I can’t wait to take the boys to the Olympic Stadium. No doubt we’ll be up in the rafters but I’m guessing the boys will love that even more. Usain Bolt will be the size of an ant but we will be there to see some breath taking elite athletics. I only wish it had been this easy to buy Olympic tickets!

We are attending the Friday evening session. Events on the schedule include the men’s 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, discus and high jump. For the women it’s the 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 400m hurdles, pole vault and triple jump. I am itching with excitement as I think of the athletes who will be on the start lists for these events. A fantastic opportunity to see Olympic champions and competitors back in London.

Right now I keep looking back at the confirmation email because I’m convinced it’s a trick. When I told my husband that four of us would be going for under £75 he was astounded. Apparently that’s cheaper than a ticket for the Six Nations at the Millenium Stadium these days!

P1000572I think I might do a little kitchen disco to celebrate my tickets and a return to running and training this week. My body is still aching and sore from my Monday session of shoulder to overheads, front squats and squats and step ups with a 10kg weight. However I’ve managed to do two runs this week with no heel or achilles pain. I’ve kept it short and sweet to avoid ‘poking the bear’ too much. So let’s have a little bounce around the kitchen to this. If I carried an iPod while I went running I’d be tempted to add this to the playlist. Plus I think the video is a bit unusual as music videos go.
