Juneathon Day 1 was utterly pathetic. I had a hospital appointment this morning and I had planned to go for a jog this evening, but I’m struggling with my feet at the moment, especially the right foot. I’ve been building up again slowly to try and get the strength back. Unfortunately, following a lot of walking around over the past couple of days, my foot has been incredibly painful. So I’m claiming my 1.54 mile walk to and from the hospital as today’s effort. I did have to make a run for the bus and it was incredibly painful. The tendons are rock hard for some reason, so I’m hoping gentle stretching and hot water this evening will loosen them up enough to try a short and gentle jog tomorrow. We shall see what happens.
Moving on, my gimmick for Juneathon is to try to write a limerick every day. I predict this will last three days. And so, without further ado, day 1:
There once was a girl with two feet
Who was an aspiring athlete
Her right foot was hurt
So her bum was not pert
As she couldn’t run on the street
And on that note, I know a few people look at Juneathon as being a good incentive to get fit and lose weight – myself included. Weight Watchers ran a similar challenge at WeightWatchers Move More last month, where their members completed 10 million minutes of exercise. Some interesting statistics were revealed, so why not keep up the good work with Juneathon, eh?
