Janathon ’20 day 26: walking, and learning a lesson

Well, it was Regent’s Park again today, then a walk down to town to pick up the car we left there last night. Total: just over 16,000 steps, which I’m guessing is about 7 miles perhaps? (Oh, and a nice dog we saw while there). I had hoped to get a run in, but then […]

Janathon ’20 day 25: rather eventful walking

Mrs H was in London today for a training course, so I went into Town with her and we had a good walk through Regent’s Park. Cutting to the chase, I have just hit 20,800 steps so with the round trip and some walking later I’ve done alright overall. Quite eventful it was, though – […]

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 […]

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 2 – tapering

Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Sunday is my triathlon at Blenheim, and I thought it would be daft to try to do too much. So instead I’ve been rushing around getting ready, managing about 10K steps. I did, however, have a quick outing on the bike: my 10yo was DESPERATE to have a […]

Juneathon ’18 day 1 – walk and swim

Gosh, is it June already? Wow, in that case – let’s DO THIS! Day 1 of Juneathon: tick. I had the day off work, and we had a family outing into London before the kids go back to school. My FitBit claims I’ve taken about 18,000 steps (just over 8 miles), and that sounds about […]

Janathon ’17 day 9 – shoe leather, mainly

Busy day, short post. Ok, no weights or anything, but I did at least manage to get over 11,000 steps in through the day. I have higher hopes for tomorrow…

Janathon ’17 day 7 – consistency is key

Family commitments have rather taken their toll on today. I’ve spent more than 3 hours driving, and eaten quite a lot of cake and lasagne, if that counts. In Janathon terms, all I can really claim is just over 9,000 steps plus a token 25 press-ups. That’s consistently something, right?

Janathon ’17 day 6 – lifting bits of metal

Time being at a premium, day 6 was sneakily squeezed in around other activities. The three main features were: 1) A walk to/from school, courtesy of a daughter who was up for an extra-early start  2) Quite a lot of walking during the day 3) An hour or so’s weights in the evening, before going […]
