Janathon ’16 day 30: road trip

My Dad has a big birthday around now, so Saturday was a bit of a crazy whistle-stop ride down to near Bath and back in a day for his birthday party. The party itself was at the rather nice venue of Tracy Park, between Bath and Bristol. Loads of family were there – in fact […]

Janathon ’16 day 28: PT

This is going to be quick! After a rather work-heavy day, I rounded things off with our pairs PT session, moved from Friday. As my shoulder has been a bit achy, this one was LEG DAY. Ouch! We mainly did deadlifts, squats and Bulgarian squats. Darrell took some pics which I have included here. Time […]

Janathon ’16 day 27: pairs PT and yoga (and ow)

Today started with a pretty strong weights session in my pairs PT that is usually on a Friday. The only problem was that while chest-pressing some 17Kg dumbbells, my left arm/shoulder failed in a way that was a) a bit painful and b) ended up with the weight whacking my hip. Annoying – owwww! This […]

Janathon ’16 day 26: delicious yoga

I’ve been out with work meetings today, but luckily had a yoga class booked this evening with YogaByEllie. Result: it was delicious, and I’m now feelin’ gooooood! My step count is a bit dismal (5-6 thousand ish), but I’m not letting that affect my mood, that’s for sure. Anyway, now bed – pairs PT tomorrow […]

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 […]

Janathon ’16 day 22: lunchtime work-out

Friday, but not like normal Fridays… I would usually have a “pairs PT” session in the morning, but our trainer was tied up with some kind of franchise meeting so we had to reschedule. Instead, I took my gym stuff into work with fingers crossed. All went to plan, and I managed a work-out at […]

Janathon ’16 day 21: Metafit, and …

A lunch outing saw me slink off again to Bodycoach for a quick Metafit session. It was pretty tough today! Each set was as follows: 4 different exercises were chosen We did all 4, for 30 seconds each, with 15 seconds gap Then we did all 4, for 25 seconds each, with 10 seconds gap […]

Janathon ’16 day 20: an answer to the cold

My plans for a lunchtime workout might have failed due to a work deadline, but I still managed my evening yoga session thankfully. It may have been very cold outside, but the yoga was distinctly warming, with some pretty serious squats, planks and balances to challenge my body and distract my mind. Brilliant! I managed […]

Janathon ’16 day 19: mixing it

Annoyingly, I seem to have developed some heel pain on my left foot. I’m not sure if it is just a bruise or something more serious, but it does rather limit my running options. However two of my other regular activities seem unaffected, and I managed both of them today. Yay! At lunch I snuck […]

Janathon ’16 day 14: usurped

Another day of things being kicked into touch by other things… A lunchtime Metafit was out of the question as work is rather mental at the moment. Then my plans for an evening run were also knocked out getting my 12yo packed for Guide camp on Friday. All I can really claim, therefore, is to […]
