Juneathon day 29: last of the hopeless days!

Words like “write-off” spring to mind when I think about today; with Mrs H out from 6:40AM until 10:30PM, and a not-yet-housetrained Sam the Cockapoo around, there hasn’t been a good deal of chance to get out for some decent Juneathon-ing! So, again, all I’ve managed is a token 1:40 plank to keep my record […]

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 […]

Juneathon day 25: lunchtime run round Rickmansworth Aquadrome

This lunchtime, I had an overwhelming urge to go for a run. Rather cunningly, I had some running kit I’d left in the office for just this sort of situation, so I changed and headed off for a run down the canal and round Rickmansworth Aquadrome. I always enjoy this route; there are usually plenty […]

Juneathon day 24: full-on evening of circuits, running and yoga

I hadn’t expected today to work out quite like this! The original plan had been just the usual Monday “piano run” while the kids had piano lessons. However, Mrs H had two excellent surprises in store. Firstly, it turned out that she wasn’t going to be able to do her circuit class booking for Wild […]

Juneathon day 23: sneaky last-minute run

That was close! Just managed to get a 4-mile run in, finishing just before midnight (I’m typing this post as I do a cool-down walk back home). It has been a lovely clear evening, with a nearly full moon lighting my way most of the time. Although there was not one but two organised runs […]

Juneathon day 20: more circuits, and our new puppy Sam!

Circuits was much the same as yesterday, but with a hideous variation at the squat/lunge phase, where I was given two kettle bells. Suffice to say in still hurting! Today we got our new puppy Sam home. He is a Cockapoo, black and beautiful, and very calm – apart from right now when he hasn’t […]

Juneathon day 19: circuits, and cockapoo preparation!

After a busy day at work, what’s better than to settle down to … an hour of high-intensity intervals with Wild Training?! It was hot out there in Hervines Park, and I was slightly at sixes and sevens when I arrived, as my 9yo daughter had her brownie meeting in the same park, throwing our […]
