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 […]

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 […]

Shameless plug #2 – rebranding of Ellie Denman Yoga

In my capacity as part-time CIO of the HSL (Hodson Support Line), I occasionally involve myself in the running of websites around the family. One such website is that of Mrs H previously aka Yoga By Ellie, now known as Ellie Denman Yoga! We’ve bought her a new domain name (https://elliedenman.yoga), and have moved the […]

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 […]
