Juneathon day 7: bike!

A couple of weeks ago, I attempted an introductory ride with the Amersham Road Cycling Club.

Today I managed my first proper ride, though, and it was really good fun! We […]

Janathon day 2: open exercise sandwich!

I had planned for today to be an “exercise sandwich”.

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! […]
