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 […]

Juneathon ’18 day 7 – easy run

Thursdays are always busy – I play the flute, and orchestra rehearsals are on Thursday evenings. Our youngest also has Brownies, and Ellie is teaching yoga. That’s enough to keep anyone busy. It’s also been extra-full-on due to having to try to sort out some woes with the PPLPRS organisation (but that’s another story). Anyway, […]

Janathon day 24: concert

Today has basically been a music day. OK, this morning was spent briefly helping out Mrs H plan a yoga event by checking out some possible local venues, but once lunch was done, it has been rehearsals and concerts all the way. The concert was with the orchestra I play in, the Misbourne Symphony Orchestra. […]

Janathon day 18: musical ordeal!

Two events coincided today: Mrs H was in London all day for her yoga teacher training; and I had rehearsals all afternoon for my Misbourne Symphony Orchestra concert, and then the concert itself in the evening. With three kids to deal with, it was always going to be a busy sort of day! My kids […]

Juneathon day 10: calves survived longest run in a while (just!)

I have two conflicting views about today. On the one hand, I’m delighted that I managed my longest run since my calves started giving me agro (4.37 miles in 44:31) and they stood up fine. This was done during my “piano slot” (when the kids have lessons and I have an hour), and was lovely! […]

Blog catch-up: flute concerto, 10k, lots of work

As I was writing my Juneathon kick-off post, I couldn’t help but notice a distinct lack of “blog love” since about March, so this is a very quick catch-up! It has been very eventful. Here’s a potted summary of the most interesting bits… On April 27th I performed Godard’s “Suite de Trois Morceaux” on my […]

Janathon day 31: a disparate community, a lunchtime run and a personal record

Wow, the final day 31 already – that went past like a rocket! A good, pointy, fast one, too. I came across it first through a community on Twitter; in participating, I’ve felt part of a group of similarly-minded people, manifested in a rather enjoyable on-line but disparate community. I still haven’t actually met any […]

Janathon day 26: marathon..!

Not that kind, though! Today has been dominated by a rehearsal and concert with my local orchestra, the Misbourne Symphony Orchestra in Amersham. With the recent snow, we had dropped a rehearsal so today has been quite tense and long, as we catch up. It all came off very well indeed, in the event. Adam […]

Janathon day 25: today’s recipe

Ingredients: lots of work, a planned run for lunchtime, a concert tomorrow, a more scary concert in April, a TRX suspension system and a gin and tonic. Take the planned lunchtime run and put it aside for future use, after a particularly complicated day at work Following an evening of “kid taxi service”, take flute […]

Janathon day 23: this blows!

So, after a busy and snow-laden day, it had got to 11PM with no sign of exercise. I had been really hoping for a run, but the freezing ground with new snow fall was making me a bit nervous of taking a fall in my tiredness. There was a bigger hurdle, though – I also […]
