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 […]

Janathon ’17 day 10 – yoga

My plans to do some weights failed due to lack of time. However an hour of yoga went down very well: back bends. Oh yeah.  I must have managed a fair few steps as well, but can’t actually come up with a number as my FitBit ran out of batteries. Oh no. I’m going to […]

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 7: “rest day”

Thursday was not going to be a rest day; I took my kit to work ready for Metafit at lunch, and was planning to go for it. However, two problems came up: work was very busy indeed after Wednesday’s yoga, with some goddess poses in particular, my inner thighs have been ON FIRE ALL DAY! […]

Juneathon day 14: Windsor triathlon

The big day arrived! After a hideously early start (setting off at 5:15), and heavy triathlon traffic at the other end, we were there and ready to go. Time was a bit short, so it wasn’t all that long before Karen was jumping in the Thames to get the ball rolling. Once she had set […]

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 10: run and yoga, not necessarily in that order

This coming Sunday, some friends and I are participating in the Windsor Triathlon, in particular the Olympic distance relay. I’m down for the 10K run at the end, but my training hasn’t been going especially well: it is in only 4 days, and I haven’t actually run 10K in really quite some months! So today […]

Juneathon day 6: various ways to rush…

A fairly varied day, really. This morning, I took the girls to see Mrs H doing the “Color Obstacle Rush” at Dorney Lake. Timing meant that we were in a bit of a rush ourselves (getting packed is always a challenge) so had to leg it to see them set off! The day was then […]

Juneathon day 5: “rest day”… (I wish)

We have three kids between 7 and 13, and they each do different activities on a Friday. It can get rather complicated! Despite not formally “doing some exercise” today, I’ve still managed to walk just under 13,000 steps / 6 miles (mostly dashing to swimming, or round the shops, or whatever). Then we had friends […]

Juneathon day 1: let’s do this thing!

It’s late, and I’ve an early start tomorrow, so let’s keep this quick! I managed a quick lunchtime run at work in Rickmansworth – not sure the distance of 3 miles on Strava is right, but hey! Then, this evening, I had an hour of Wild Training in Hervines Park, Amersham. Apparently, according to my FitBit, I’ve done […]
