Janathon ’20 day 13: circuits and lifting stuff

Monday equals circuits, at 6:30am. Today was what’s known as “Challenge Week”. The good news: it is only half an hour. The bad news: the format is AMRAP (as many reps a possible) over that half-hour. Each round of the circuits was: Running 5 laps of a small course 20 press-ups 20 single-leg lunges 20 […]

Janathon ’20 day 7: two runs and yoga – a bit too much!

With the benefit of hindsight, I’ve probably over-done it a bit today! It all started at 6:40 this morning when my friend and I went out for a 4.25 mile run. (Actually it started a few hours before that – whenever I need to get up early, my body keeps thinking I’ve over-slept, and wakes […]

Janathon ’20 day 5: walk and run, with a bit of flute thrown in for “X effect”!

Today we went up to near Cambridge to visit my parents-in-law. My MIL has been rather unwell, but thankfully is making an astonishing recovery after a rather up-and-down period over Christmas. When we said we were heading up, the instruction was received to bring my flute, and who am I to argue! As if any […]

Janathon ’20 day 2: trying to keep up

Today’s main activity was a run. My friend had been feeling a bit guilty about not doing Parkrun yesterday, so suggested a quick outing this morning. This seemed like an excellent idea when he suggested it, and so we agreed to meet up at 8:30 for a run round Amersham. This morning it didn’t seem […]

Janathon ’19 day 2: more running (and yoga)

I was back at work today, but the kids were still on their last stand before school. So an early run seemed like the thing! Today was a slightly hillier version of yesterday’s run, about 2.3 miles with a small hill. Again, it was lovely to be out in the countryside, and I found my […]

Janathon ’19 day 1: easy run

I wasn’t sure whether I was going to be back here this year, but looks like I am! The last couple of months have been pretty active as I was training for a 10 mile run on Sunday. That went well-ish, and now I’m keen to keep up the momentum. I was going to go […]

Juneathon ’18 day 18 – less is more

I’m noticing a pattern emerging. Ellie is keen to up her running levels, and likes a little 2-mile-ish loop we’ve got going down in the Old Town. So, if she’s up for a run, that’s been proving a pretty solid Juneathon entry. Did the trick today, that’s for sure. One unexpected side-effect of this has […]

Juneathon ’18 day 15 – double run

So yesterday I had to resort to token press-ups, while today I manage two separate runs! I wasn’t sure how the day was going to pan out, and so grabbed the opportunity to head out for a quick run in the morning. It was quite hilly in the end, going for a circuit including Amersham […]

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 […]
