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

Juneathon Day 8: Meh

My hangover yesterday actually turned out to be a bug of some description and I was quite poorly in the end. I knew it wasn’t a hangover, four bottles of bud never has me feeling like that. So anyway, today I did not want to run. Or do anything. I’m feeling a bit poorly, a bit sleep deprived and the weather is horrible. I only ran a mile because, well, I had to. Nothing special, but inside the 9 minute mile pace. Yay. I was going to announce my giveaway today but I’m too tired.… View Post

Juneathon Day 7: A bit of a hangover

Well, it had to happen eventually, didn’t it? We went to the pub last night because we had a £25 beer voucher about to expire so we thought we better use it. Actually, we exceeded it and had to pay the difference. Never mind. My legs are feeling like lead. It was raining and yucky outside. I was tired and hungover and moody. I did not want to run. But Juneathon says “bah” to hangovers and eventually I went outside. The rain was actually quite pleasant and my planned mile turned into 1.5 miles. Epic.… View Post
