Janathon ’16 day 27: pairs PT and yoga (and ow)

Today started with a pretty strong weights session in my pairs PT that is usually on a Friday. The only problem was that while chest-pressing some 17Kg dumbbells, my left arm/shoulder failed in a way that was a) a bit painful and b) ended up with the weight whacking my hip. Annoying – owwww! This […]

Janathon ’16 day 26: delicious yoga

I’ve been out with work meetings today, but luckily had a yoga class booked this evening with YogaByEllie. Result: it was delicious, and I’m now feelin’ gooooood! My step count is a bit dismal (5-6 thousand ish), but I’m not letting that affect my mood, that’s for sure. Anyway, now bed – pairs PT tomorrow […]

Janathon ’16 day 20: an answer to the cold

My plans for a lunchtime workout might have failed due to a work deadline, but I still managed my evening yoga session thankfully. It may have been very cold outside, but the yoga was distinctly warming, with some pretty serious squats, planks and balances to challenge my body and distract my mind. Brilliant! I managed […]

Janathon ’16 day 19: mixing it

Annoyingly, I seem to have developed some heel pain on my left foot. I’m not sure if it is just a bruise or something more serious, but it does rather limit my running options. However two of my other regular activities seem unaffected, and I managed both of them today. Yay! At lunch I snuck […]

Janathon ’16 day 13: lots of fun!

Work is very busy at the moment, so by lunchtime I was in urgent need of a little break. Down to Bodycoach gym in Rickmansworth I headed, slightly undecided as to what I was going to do. In the end I spent a bit of time on the upper body, did a warm-up on the […]

Janathon ’16 day 12: closer to plans

While it could have so easily gone the same way as Monday, this day went much better! Metafit worked out well, and I even managed to top it off with some upper-body exercises afterwards. Then, in the evening I had a really enjoyable hour of yoga with YogaByEllie – just what was required after all […]

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! […]

Juneathon day 10: run and yoga, not necessarily in that order

This coming Sunday, some friends and I are participating in the Windsor Triathlon, in particular the Olympic distance relay. I’m down for the 10K run at the end, but my training hasn’t been going especially well: it is in only 4 days, and I haven’t actually run 10K in really quite some months! So today […]

Juneathon day 3: yoga!

With another full day on site with a client, Juneathon options have been limited. A horrendously late night last night hasn’t helped matters either! However, current logistics often allow me to head over to a blissful yoga session with Yoga By Ellie, aka Mrs H, and this evening was one of those! Ellie is running […]

A short and shameless plug for Mrs H’s new YogaByEllie website!

I’ve written a number of times over the last few years about doing yoga, either with Mrs H or other local teachers. Well, I can now officially un-mask Mrs H in her own right as the Ellie behind Yoga By Ellie! She’s actually been teaching yoga in Amersham for around a year now, first at […]
