Last Tuesday Dan and I joined the London Midnight Runners for a strengthen & stretch session in Hyde Park, led by one of my favourite insta fit gals, Adrienne! I’d had a bit of a wash out of an afternoon so getting outside to train on a beautiful day and with a load of happy, positive souls was just what I needed.

So, I have spent the last week swanning around Iceland, shooting up a storm (during a storm, most days) and despite the distinct lack of wifi I did of course manage to instagram all the best bits… In fact, I don’t think I’d last two days without instagram… there should be a 12 step programme for it! Anyway, I digress… the point I want to make in this post is that although modeling truly does have lots of awesome bits, the reality of it is that it is generally unglamorous and almost always bloody hard work!
