Juneathon ’18 day 30 – finished!

Am I talking about Juneathon or my training this morning? Both, it turns out! But before I go into that, first here’s a quick overview. Strava tells me I’ve run 26.1 miles this month, cycled 16.6 miles and swum a bit over one. There’s also been a fair number of yoga classes, weights sessions and […]

Juneathon ’18 day 29 – weights

Commuting takes up such a lot of time! Going in today was brilliant: a five minute head-start got us there a good 25 minutes earlier than normal. Coming back, though, was disastrous: a few accidents on the M4 meant massive detours and an overall time of not far short of two hours. So again, at […]

Juneathon ’18 day 28 – barely

Clinging in there for the last few days. There was too much going on with commute and family to manage much: all I can claim is to have managed about 7,000 steps and an emergency 35 press-ups to get me through. Hopefully Friday will be better!

Juneathon ’18 day 27 – … and repeat

Much like yesterday, however a combination of luck and setting off 10 minutes earlier made the commute a bit shorter. Today I’ve only spent about 2.5 hours driving rather than 3.5 yesterday. The same yoga class too – an hour of it. Temperature not too bad, and I’m noticeably better at touching hands behind my […]

Juneathon ’18 day 26 – Groundhog day

Nasty commute to Theale, day’s work, nasty commute back. Then an hour of yoga – an excellent antidote to vehicular stress! This is roughly how my days are going to look until the end of next week. I’m lucky to not have a bad commute normally, so this is a useful reminder to me of […]

Juneathon ’18 day 25 – driving, plus…

Driving is something I’ve done a lot of today. My son started two weeks of work experience today, based in Theale. Guess who has to get him there and back from Amersham? That’s right. Then, while he was there, I was working in Bracknell. Add in some awful M4 traffic and you get the idea. […]

Juneathon ’18 day 24 – ordeal

Training this evening was rather knocked out by finally getting round to booking our summer holidays. I’m now feeling a great deal poorer than I was earlier, but rather less anxious on the subject! So while proper training didn’t happen, I did at least manage about 10,000 steps, partly walking round the park in Marlow. […]

Juneathon ’18 day 23 – weights and a run

We made a pilgrimage up to see my parents-in-law today, who live fairly near Cambridge. Knowing there would be scant chance for a decent Juneathon performance while I was up there, I went for an early stint to get it out the way. First off came a 45-minute weights session. Short and sharp was how […]

Juneathon ’18 day 22 – windows 95!

Today has been splendid. I’ve walked a fair old way (just over 14,000 steps right now), partly because I managed to work somewhere a decent walking distance from home, and had a quick lunch outing. Heading down, the sun was out, the sky was blue with just a spotting of clouds, and it looked extremely […]

Juneathon ’18 day 21 – international yoga day

Who knew it was the solstice today? Not me! However, I did manage to get to a yoga class – my third this week, for the win! It was a touch cooler than it has been earlier in the week, making it rather more pleasant. I can definitely feel my body getting more flexible as […]
