Juneathon day 18/19: excuses!

Not much to say. The last few days have been a general wash-out, given the health events that have overtaken the family. I’ve managed a token plank (day 18) and some press-ups (day 19) to just about meet the spirit of Juneathon. It has been completely right to prioritise health above exercise, though, so I […]

Juneathon day 17: illness

When health problems come up, other things tend to take a bit of a back seat. That’s where we are at the moment. I’m just about ticking the boxes with a token plank of just over a minute, but circumstances haven’t allowed me to get out for a run or indeed any other kind of […]

Juneathon day 16: the futility of planning

With the best will in the world, things don’t always go to plan. We have had some illness in the family that has distinctly thrown a spanner in the works. Grand plans for Tuesday ended up being watered down to a rather token 30 press-ups. On the plus side, I think the kids can claim […]

Juneathon day 15: back to normality

Well, this morning Mrs H and I managed to pop out for a quick early run once the kids were dropped at school. We did about 30 mins ish of gentle jogging/walking, probably a couple of miles ish. My legs were a bit sore after yesterday, so this felt like a nice kind of level […]

Juneathon day 14: Windsor triathlon

The big day arrived! After a hideously early start (setting off at 5:15), and heavy triathlon traffic at the other end, we were there and ready to go. Time was a bit short, so it wasn’t all that long before Karen was jumping in the Thames to get the ball rolling. Once she had set […]

Juneathon day 13: “tapering”

With the Windsor Triathlon tomorrow, I didn’t want to do much today, to give my body some rest. So apart from marching around a lot, it’s been pretty quiet. We went to register in Windsor and check out the lie of the land, which was useful. Now, though: time for bed, as we are leaving […]

Juneathon day 12: attacking the hill fort

Friday is pairs PT day, which conveniently ticked off my Juneathon requirements by 8:05 this morning, featuring some pretty comprehensive arm work, mainly. After that, I hared it back to our place and got changed, then we took the kids to school and went over to … Danesfield House, local spa venue as featured in […]

Juneathon day 11: just squashed in

There wasn’t a minute spare yesterday, and the usual evening exercise slot was knocked out by our youngest daughter being inducted into Brownies. This entailed a ceremony in a private woods near Chesham, and the eating of burgers. So there hasn’t been much in the way of specific exercise. However, if you include a walking […]

Juneathon day 10: run and yoga, not necessarily in that order

This coming Sunday, some friends and I are participating in the Windsor Triathlon, in particular the Olympic distance relay. I’m down for the 10K run at the end, but my training hasn’t been going especially well: it is in only 4 days, and I haven’t actually run 10K in really quite some months! So today […]

Juneathon day 9: last-minute

My grand plan for the day featured a run in the evening. Reality set in, though, when at 11PM I realised I still needed to do a sprint round Tesco. Revising my thinking, I ended up with: A sprint round Tesco (mileage unknown, but always further than I think!) 30 knee dips each on both […]
