Janathon ’16 day 30: road trip

My Dad has a big birthday around now, so Saturday was a bit of a crazy whistle-stop ride down to near Bath and back in a day for his birthday party. The party itself was at the rather nice venue of Tracy Park, between Bath and Bristol. Loads of family were there – in fact […]

Janathon ’16 day 29: double challenge

What a day. After making it to evening, I just about managed to head out for a wet, windy 1.5 mile run round Amersham. I wasn’t feeling great, so for once took the sensible option and headed back early. That was the easy bit though: worse by far was the funeral this morning of a […]

Janathon ’16 day 28: PT

This is going to be quick! After a rather work-heavy day, I rounded things off with our pairs PT session, moved from Friday. As my shoulder has been a bit achy, this one was LEG DAY. Ouch! We mainly did deadlifts, squats and Bulgarian squats. Darrell took some pics which I have included here. Time […]

Janathon ’16 day 27: pairs PT and yoga (and ow)

Today started with a pretty strong weights session in my pairs PT that is usually on a Friday. The only problem was that while chest-pressing some 17Kg dumbbells, my left arm/shoulder failed in a way that was a) a bit painful and b) ended up with the weight whacking my hip. Annoying – owwww! This […]

Janathon ’16 day 26: delicious yoga

I’ve been out with work meetings today, but luckily had a yoga class booked this evening with YogaByEllie. Result: it was delicious, and I’m now feelin’ gooooood! My step count is a bit dismal (5-6 thousand ish), but I’m not letting that affect my mood, that’s for sure. Anyway, now bed – pairs PT tomorrow […]

Janathon ’16 day 25: hobbling around!

It all hurts rather today! For a start, I bought new shoes over the weekend, and as it turns out they need a bit of wearing in. Worse, though, I’m aching quite a lot from yesterday – the run was quite literally a step too far. I was going to do some Metafit today but […]

Janathon ’16 day 24: rather over-the-top

My cycling club, the ARCC, has outings on Sunday mornings. I don’t manage many of them due to family commitments – rides knock out half the day, typically, and that’s quite a big “ask” for Mrs H. However I do go out periodically, and with dry weather forecast, this was my day. I chose well, […]

Janathon ’16 day 23: exercise by proxy

Today has been full-on! Mrs H was out doing circuits this morning, and our oldest was on the footie, and then our littlest had a school cross country event at Hervines Park in Amersham! As it turned out, hers was actually the earliest, so she and I traipsed over to the park ready for some […]

Janathon ’16 day 22: lunchtime work-out

Friday, but not like normal Fridays… I would usually have a “pairs PT” session in the morning, but our trainer was tied up with some kind of franchise meeting so we had to reschedule. Instead, I took my gym stuff into work with fingers crossed. All went to plan, and I managed a work-out at […]

Janathon ’16 day 21: Metafit, and …

A lunch outing saw me slink off again to Bodycoach for a quick Metafit session. It was pretty tough today! Each set was as follows: 4 different exercises were chosen We did all 4, for 30 seconds each, with 15 seconds gap Then we did all 4, for 25 seconds each, with 10 seconds gap […]
