Janathon ’20 day 3: morning circuits

I’m just putting this out there now since, based on the way I’m feeling, there’s not much else I’ll be doing! There is a local outdoor training bootcamp-type group I train with during the week. It is called FFS – standing for Faster, Fitter, Stronger, of course! Given the normal weekly business associated with having […]

Juneathon ’18 day 23 – weights and a run

We made a pilgrimage up to see my parents-in-law today, who live fairly near Cambridge. Knowing there would be scant chance for a decent Juneathon performance while I was up there, I went for an early stint to get it out the way. First off came a 45-minute weights session. Short and sharp was how […]

Juneathon ’18 day 22 – windows 95!

Today has been splendid. I’ve walked a fair old way (just over 14,000 steps right now), partly because I managed to work somewhere a decent walking distance from home, and had a quick lunch outing. Heading down, the sun was out, the sky was blue with just a spotting of clouds, and it looked extremely […]

Juneathon ’18 day 10 – Amersham run

We were invited to a rather splendid barbecue today. I ate more than was probably good for me, and it was all delicious. The hosts and guests were all good company too, making it a very enjoyable day overall. After heaving ourselves into the car and getting home, Junethon was weighing heavily on my mind […]

Juneathon ’18 day 8 – up past Shardeloes

What a lovely, warm evening for a gentle run from the cricket pitch near Old Amersham through to Little Missenden. Some kind of children’s cricket activity was going on as we left, with plenty of players and parents in attendance. Further on, it was the ducks and geese who were having a field day on […]

Juneathon ’18 day 5 – yoga and a walk (oh, and Tesco)

What with it being dry and everything, a bit of a walk around Rickmansworth seemed just the ticket for this lunchtime. So out I headed, for a brisk circuit touching the river and town. A great way to clear my head of work! Adding in the walk to and from work, I’m standing at about […]

Janathon ’17 day 7 – consistency is key

Family commitments have rather taken their toll on today. I’ve spent more than 3 hours driving, and eaten quite a lot of cake and lasagne, if that counts. In Janathon terms, all I can really claim is just over 9,000 steps plus a token 25 press-ups. That’s consistently something, right?

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 […]

Janathon ’16 day 20: an answer to the cold

My plans for a lunchtime workout might have failed due to a work deadline, but I still managed my evening yoga session thankfully. It may have been very cold outside, but the yoga was distinctly warming, with some pretty serious squats, planks and balances to challenge my body and distract my mind. Brilliant! I managed […]

Janathon ’16 day 17/18: oh, the glamour

Sunday was a catastrophic fail. We were out a fair chunk of the day, and I wanted to get an early night to get my mood and eating back on top. So “rest day” it was – but the night certainly wasn’t! Our burglar alarm took the opportunity to develop a fault and go off […]
