Intro

Leeds was our adventure this weekend.  Not a city with the most exciting reputation as vegan-friendly.  Still we intended to make the most of things arriving on the Friday to some blue sky & sunshine (who knew that north of London there was sunshine?).

Our first port of call was a place called humpit. We found it using the happycow app, it was vegan & we needed to refuel!

We spent the evening round a friends house & so were raring to go the next morning when it was time to join the festival.

New shoes & naughty nibbles

The stall was looking fab & so I took a little time to have a quick shop.

I bought a pair of these Freet shoes as they were going half price at the event.They didn't have the colour I wanted in my size so they are posting them to me. I will let you know how I get on with them as soon as I get a chance to try them out. They are a kind of minimalist style shoe, with a separate bigtoe section.  They may be good, or not?  We shall see?


Scrapper with Churros - a fried pastry thing

I did eat a little junk (spurred on by Scrapper!), but now & again it is ok to eat a little rubbish.

Strange cabins

All day we were opposite a strange cabin facing the opposite wall.  Just like any good horror movie, we knew we had to check it out.

Like the TARDIS, the inside of the cabin was much bigger than the outside?  Unlike the TARDIS inside was a giant foot (amongst other things).  You didn't expect that, did you?

Woman's contest

The ladies event was just doing controlled reps, there was no pause necessary, but they had to do proper reps (not on the knees).


First up was Elizabeth & her mum together who got 7 each!


Next up was Stacy  who pumped out 12 reps


Colleen forced the pace with a stunning 28 reps


Gina got a heart stopping 41 reps


Lastly Marie ended the event with 1 rep (she was badgered into entered by naughty Maz!)

Men's contest

The men had to do a variation of a standard push-up. They had to pause for a second at the bottom of each rep for a moment, then come back up.  This made each rep much harder.


John went first setting the standard at 36 reps


Sam went next firing out 39 reps


Jordan hit a decent 26 reps


Yiam (possibly - the name wasn't clear?) 37 reps


Jasim managed 38 reps

Daniyal managed 44 reps (under 16 style reps)

Wrap-up

So that was the highlights of our weekend in Leeds. Other highlights include a meal out after the show, a little socialising, then getting lost when the phone died in Leeds city centre.  It was a nice day out, so pencil in the event for next year.

As usual we will end the page with a few photos of the contest entrants receiving prizes along with our recap of our sponsors that you can click on & buy some of their goodies.
