Juneathon day 18/19: excuses!

Not much to say. The last few days have been a general wash-out, given the health events that have overtaken the family. I’ve managed a token plank (day 18) and some press-ups (day 19) to just about meet the spirit of Juneathon. It has been completely right to prioritise health above exercise, though, so I […]

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 15: emergency press-ups and a plank

Given last night’s horribly short sleep, today has actually been alright, albeit a bit busy. I basically haven’t stopped between 6:50 when I got up and now, so wasn’t able to fit much in. On the plus side, orchestra was fun this evening. We have a concert next weekend with the Misbourne Symphony Orchestra in […]

Janathon day 11: recovery

Busy day! I’ve done loads, but now it is 23:20 and a run is out of the question. I’ve gone for the “token” option: 20 press-ups and a 1:16 plank. (I’m guessing a tax return doesn’t count?). The plan now: sleep, then tomorrow … THE WORLD! Night all…

Janathon day 7: back home…

… but shattered! A long day working and travelling left little chance this evening to manage Janathon. I had hoped a yoga session might be on the books, but tomorrow now looks more likely for that. So, tonight, I slipped in a quick plank (1:07) and 40 press-ups. And hopefully one long zzzzzzz…

Janathon day 9: what a plank… Plus – green smoothies

Something I’ve done over the last few days has made my left leg hurt, so running is off the cards for a few days to give it a chance to recover. What with today being so busy, and my orchestra rehearsal this evening (I play flute, and we have a next weekend), I haven’t had […]

Juneathon day 28: overtaken

Not much to say – ended up working until 1:30am, so managed a 1:35 plank before diving into bed, to be woken up 30 minutes later by our 5yo! The 29th is going to be a struggle too since Mrs H is away all day at a wedding, and it might be tricky to find […]

Juneathon day 27: the best made plans…

Some days just don’t go as you plan. Today, for instance, I was hoping to go for a run or at least a swim; in the end all I managed was a plank and some foam rolling. Oh well, such is life! In other news, Sam appears to be finally showing encouraging signs of starting […]
