Juneathon Day 16: Running out of steam

My blog about day 16 is within the required 24 hours, however I have nothing of great interest to say. Jimmy took himself off to Park Run and I stayed in bed. I thought about joining him, but I don’t want to run a 30 minute time due to recovering from injury, I’d rather wait until I’m strong enough to try to get closer to my 25 minute 5k target. I haven’t got too much time to shave off my 5k PB, but I know at the moment, I’m just not strong enough. Jimmy however… View Post

Juneathon Day 15: A Run and a Guest Post

I had a really positive run today and I’m feeling much better about myself. It was just a short run of 1.5 miles in my Zaggora Hotpants but my foot didn’t hurt and I managed it in 13.28. This is by no means a personal best, but it was windy, it included a hill and I felt completely fine at the end of it. I’m feeling more positive now that in a couple of weeks, I may feel confident enough to get back to my local Park Run. I’m forgoing my daily limerick today, not… View Post

Juneathon Day 13

I’m still technically within the rules, but I’m not doing very well. Once again, a token effort, a mile walk. Hardcore indeed. Today will be a better day. The sun is shining, it’s beautiful out and I’m shortly going to go to Pilates. I should probably stop this post now or I will be doing a pre-emptive blog (is that allowed?). The girl was feeling very lazy Deciding that the rules are hazy Her thighs are so fat She must work on that Juneathon is indeed for the crazy. Needless to say, the limerick mojo… View Post

Juneathon Day 11: A pain in the arse!

By pain in the arse, I mean, quite literally, a pain in the arse. No doubt you’ve all cursed the weather today in much the same way as me. However, Juneathon called, Jimmy nagged and out for a run I went. It started off fairly well in that my foot felt good enough for me to push to two miles. However, a mile in, I felt a sharp, stabbing pain at the top of my left leg. I pushed on through it, but the pain got worse and I called it quits at 1.7 miles,… View Post

Juneathon Day 9: A walk

Went to a birthday barbecue yesterday and on the way home, Jimmy suggested going to look at the water. Going to look at the water turned into a 4.5 mile walk along the Thames to Woolwich. It was a lovely walk on a lovely evening, but my shoes were not really made for walking as the blisters and flaps of loose skin have confirmed. We got home quite late, so I decided not to run and claim the walk instead. I will be running shortly for today’s effort. Check back then for details of an… View Post
