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

Juneathon Day 6: A sluggish run & the Hope Relay

Ugh. You know those days when you just don’t run to run? Today was one of them. I’m feeling sluggish, the weather is muggy and gross, I’m feeling a bit fat and I was promised a visit to the pub. Needless to say, I really didn’t want to run and set foot out of the door only because it is Juneathon. A single mile was reluctantly clocked up with Jimmy coming to keep me company before doing a proper run and the pace was awful. Meh. Tomorrow is another day. However, there was one positive… View Post
