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 1: sneaky parkrun

Happy new year, everyone. So – Janathon 2020. After a surprisingly early night/good sleep, the idea of doing Ricky parkrun was pretty appealing. It was really very chilly, and I felt a bit under-dressed in comparison to some people there, e.g. the snowman on the right! As it turned out, I wasn’t the only one […]

Janathon ’16 day 31: game over!

Last day, woo hoo! Janathon has actually been very helpful for me this year. I’ve really enjoyed following a number of my fellow Janathoners’ blogs through the month, and have also done better on the exercise front than I would otherwise have done, of that I’m sure. In addition, though, it has kicked off 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 5: metafit and yoga

Another day, another Metafit class in Rickmansworth at lunch. For some reason, this one was heaving; before today, the largest class I have attended stood at about 5 people ish, but today there were a full 10 of us. The weather was good, the exercise gruelling but only about 30 minutes, so all told it […]

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 8: keeping it simple

Still tired from yesterday, and busy at work: what to do? Well, today, I kept it simple: a quick run around Ricky. Apparently it was 3.3 miles, and I wasn’t going fast since I’m trying to prepare for 10K on Sunday and will need to be gentle! Next stop, sleep…

Juneathon day 7: bike!

A couple of weeks ago, I attempted an introductory ride with the Amersham Road Cycling Club. Unfortunately, my plans were thwarted very early, when about 10 minutes in to the ride my chain snapped spectacularly, knocking out my rear gears. Today I managed my first proper ride, though, and it was really good fun! We […]

Juneathon day 4: a bit extreme!

I usually have a pairs PT session on a Friday morning, however this week we had to bump it to Thursday – today. With the weather being so utterly beautiful, we decided to cycle the 6-ish miles to Deep Mill where we train, which was a delight. Once we got there, we had a pretty […]

Juneathon day 3: yoga!

With another full day on site with a client, Juneathon options have been limited. A horrendously late night last night hasn’t helped matters either! However, current logistics often allow me to head over to a blissful yoga session with Yoga By Ellie, aka Mrs H, and this evening was one of those! Ellie is running […]
