Janathon ’16 day 23: exercise by proxy

Today has been full-on! Mrs H was out doing circuits this morning, and our oldest was on the footie, and then our littlest had a school cross country event at Hervines Park in Amersham! As it turned out, hers was actually the earliest, so she and I traipsed over to the park ready for some […]

Juneathon day 4: a bit extreme!

I usually have a pairs PT session on a Friday morning, however this week we had to bump it to Thursday – today. With the weather being so utterly beautiful, we decided to cycle the 6-ish miles to Deep Mill where we train, which was a delight. Once we got there, we had a pretty […]

Juneathon day 1: let’s do this thing!

It’s late, and I’ve an early start tomorrow, so let’s keep this quick! I managed a quick lunchtime run at work in Rickmansworth – not sure the distance of 3 miles on Strava is right, but hey! Then, this evening, I had an hour of Wild Training in Hervines Park, Amersham. Apparently, according to my FitBit, I’ve done […]

Janathon day 28: saved by Wild Training

My plans are rather falling apart here as we near the end of Janathon, so thank goodness that Wild Training was scheduled in! A freezing cold one, it was, but enjoyable (even if I couldn’t feel my toes by the end). Music and exercise are coming together: there are now two other members of my […]

Janathon day 20: yoga!

There were plans; I was going to be back on Wild Training, followed by a yoga class. But plans change, and this time it was the Wild that took the bosh. However, all wasn’t lost, as the yoga still went very nicely, thank you! Probably a rest wasn’t a bad plan, either, as I’m still […]

Janathon day 19: stepping it back up a bit

That’s more like it! Today I managed: An hour’s Wild Training, using resistance bands for squatting, lunges, rowing and pressing, finishing with an awful abs workout with Russian twists etc. I doubled up on bands, too, so this was quite a challenging session, for sure A run to/from that session (probably no more than 2 […]

Janathon day 12: evening outdoor exercise class

Another full-on day, but luckily I managed to keep my Janathon streak going with a place at tonight’s Wild Training in Amersham. This week is the first in the so-called “complex phase”, which makes extensive use of elasticated bands to focus on particular muscles. The main moves were: 1) Hold the handles by your shoulders, […]

Janathon day 10: that sandwich, finally

It wasn’t what I’d planned, but nonetheless today has been a good day. First, I hadn’t expected to make it to Wild Training this morning, as Mrs H had designs on a yoga class. However, she very kindly let me go anyway, so I had an hour of “kettlebell challenge”. For further details on what […]

Janathon day 5: finally – some running!

It’s been a busy day, and hasn’t finished yet, so I’ll keep this brief (ish). Today has been a two-pronged effort, starting off with a quick and sneaky lunchtime run round Rickmansworth. That was nice! It was cold but not excessively so, and muddy but not unpleasantly much: I went up next to the river […]

Janathon day 4: walk through the fog

Sunday, the day before a week of work and school: family time. A friend had suggested a group walk in the morning, and we thought it might be fun to walk from the field below Shardeloes House up to the Red Lion in Little Missenden, and back. There were 9 of us in total, and […]
