Janathon ’20 day 23: lunch run, thank you Janathon!

I managed to fit in a sneaky 10K run this lunchtime, round Rickmansworth. Pretty muddy, hillier than I remembered, and worst of all – too much of a queue in the coffee shop when I got back. Boo! This month has actually gone pretty well, it seems: so far in January I’ve run 45.4 miles, […]

Janathon ’20 day 18: Parkrun and a walk round Henley-on-Thames (plus an excuse)

A late entry for Saturday (we went out on Saturday night and I was too tired to get this post done). The day split up neatly, starting with Parkrun over in Rickmansworth. The aquadrome was really cold and icy, and numbers were really high – over 700 people finished the event. I didn’t get a […]

Janathon ’20 day 11: Parkrun

Rickmansworth Parkrun was the host for Saturday’s Janathon activity. In fact, not just for me but also for the other 691 people who had the same idea. Wow! I took a selfie to try to give some idea of how big the crowd was, but it doesn’t really quite capture the scale. I had my […]

Janathon ’20 day 4: Ricky parkrun, and trip to Cliveden

Parkrun has become something of a regular outing. What they say on their blog is quite right: it’s a really inclusive kind of event, with all sorts of people doing it in their own way. (No Frosty the snowmen today, though – that I noticed, at least.) As I presume is usually the case at […]

Janathon ’20 day 1: sneaky parkrun

Happy new year, everyone. So – Janathon 2020. After a surprisingly early night/good sleep, the idea of doing Ricky parkrun was pretty appealing. It was really very chilly, and I felt a bit under-dressed in comparison to some people there, e.g. the snowman on the right! As it turned out, I wasn’t the only one […]

Janathon ’19 day 3: cross country

A lunchtime run was my poison of choice today. Working in Rickmansworth which is blessed with a splendid aquadrome and canal, this seemed like the ideal option. I couldn’t decide on a route so basically “winged it”, just setting off to see where I ended up. It was cold but pretty, and my eventual route […]

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 6: triple play

That was fun! But time is short, so here’s the potted summary: No Metafit again, so I thought I’d have a run round the aquadrome in Rickmansworth, which was about 3.3 miles apparently. Then I did a bit more weights stuff after I’d cleaned all the mud off… Finally, it was yoga again this evening! […]

Janathon ’16 day 5: metafit and yoga

Another day, another Metafit class in Rickmansworth at lunch. For some reason, this one was heaving; before today, the largest class I have attended stood at about 5 people ish, but today there were a full 10 of us. The weather was good, the exercise gruelling but only about 30 minutes, so all told it […]

Janathon ’16 day 4: metafit

Running was out today. But, metafit was back on the normal timetable at the Bodycoach gym in Rickmansworth, and a plan was forming. A quick lunch outing and I was in. The metafit format is appealing: a 30 minute HIIT (high-intensity interval training) programme, timed precisely with a recording to guide you through the programme. […]
