This Girl Can but hasn’t….much

I was delighted yesterday to be awarded with the Janathon Baton of Shame for my exemplary performance in the lethargy and idleness arena. I truly did mean well when I signed the dotted line and committed myself to daily jogging, logging and blogging, but then I got sick. I took to my bed at 22:30 [...]

Confused Tabata

My schedule called for 6.5 mins of Japanese inspired, high-intensity, treadmill torture. I set my phone app to beep at 20s and 10s intervals, indicating torture and relaxation intervals respectively, performed a gentle warmup and then attempted to coordinate the start button pressing on 3 devices - the iPhone app, the Garmin and the treadmill. [...]

A Metronomic Start to Janathon

running cadence

This is the first Janathon where I haven't logged a run within minutes of the midnight chimes. I did plan to, I had my kit laid out next to the bubbly but when push came to shove my cold and a deep sleep overcame me and I retired to bed instead. A truly wild and rocking [...]

Almost a Sick Note

Recently, whenever I start to prepare for exercise I feel as though I am about to have a heart attack. It's not extreme pain but does feel as though I have an elephant sitting on me or more precisely a belt tied tightly around my chest. Today the plan was to attend an early morning [...]

Not a Lot of Fun on The Royal Military Canal

Both fitflo and jogblog have noticed my absence and have been kind enough to send out a search party. I'm still here, quietly dabbling with Janathon, which of course is not the point - Janathon is supposed to be shouted about on a daily basis. There has been some daily form of exercise happening. This [...]

A Near Fail

I came very close on the 11th. It was 11:45pm and I was settling down to watch episode 4 of The Bridge, when Lynn started the Janathon countdown. I told her didn't matter and I wasn't doing it anymore but she wasn't having any of it. I'm a starter-leaver by nature. I love the thrill [...]

Faff and Exercise

Faff and Exercise Thumbnail

There was considerably more faff than exercise associated with today, the 9th day of Janathon. There was another long and frustrating day at the accountancy desk split by a particularly frustrating lunch. I had failed to prepare a slow carb pack-up and therefore slowly descended to a near starvation, stressy state because I couldn't find [...]

Poor Excuse for a Blog

Poor Excuse for a Blog Thumbnail

Well I woke up this morning and completely forgot about the lame leg experience. It must have been psychological. Work took up far more than its fair share of my life today, so by the time I got back home I had only a tiny modicum of energy for exercise. I opted for a very [...]

A Lame Excuse

A Lame Excuse Thumbnail

The 9th is the day that most people abandon their new fitness resolutions and I'm ashamed to say that while we are only on the 7th day, my excuses are already stacking up. Immediately after yesterday's run commute I had a strange dead-legging experience. Without any obvious contributing factor, my leg started to behave as [...]

A Janathon Commute for Day 6

A Janathon Commute for Day 6 Thumbnail

What is with this January weather, it is just not conducive to outdoor activities. This morning I was attempting to gather sufficient enthusiasm to walk to work. I was tucked under the duvet admiring the muddy prints that Hugo was leaving across the beige bedroom carpet and pondering how to get from bed to work [...]
