I won’t tell you how long it is since I have cleaned the house properly, because if I did you would want to distance yourself from me.
Truth is, I don’t need much of an excuse do skip housework – and Janathon has been the perfect excuse!
In the end a sense of health and safety awareness kicked in and I spent most of the morning working out with broom, mop and duster.
In the process I found two guitar plectrums, a dog-eared copy of ‘Dirk Gently’ s Holistic Detective Agency’ and £7.55. That must be some kind of record.
I didn’t do very much exercise today. Mostly, because since yesterday I am officially in training for a 10K run at the beginning of March and according to my training schedule today is a rest day. Proper work starts tomorrow.
I am following the training plan from ActionAid, which I have used before and found very useful. I am hoping to follow the plan for Advanced runners, although I am certainly not aiming for a sub 50 minutes. In my world that’s humanly impossible!
So instead of running I’m doing Yoga today.
I walked to the shops with hubby. On the way home we had a coffee/chai latte at the local cafe and called it a date.
Then I delivered another #ToriesMustGo beanie on foot.
Yoga 30 mins
Total stats for Janathon 2015 (In italics are last year’s stats)
Run 103.5K (101K)
Ride 95K (66K)
Weights 3hrs 40 mins (Jhoom 1hr)
Yoga 1 hr 30 mins (2hrs)
My triumph at reaching the 100K mark for running was slightly marred by the fact that many of you reached 100 miles. Well done you! I guess it’s a good reason for sticking with measuring my runs in kilometres! 😉
In other stats, at the time of writing this my blog has had over 252 visitors, 571 views (mostly from the UK and the US), 226 likes and 141 comments – most from the lovely Shaz and KnitnRun4sanity (check out their blogs).
I want to thank all you wonderful Janathoners out there for your stories, encouragement and motivation!
I wrote a similar thing last year. Janathon is a great incentive for me to get back into running and to improve my fitness and set new running goals.
But most of all it helps me make it through January, one of the most dreary months! I know spring is not here yet, but we are certainly a step closer…
I will try to keep this blog ticking over, but I make no promises. If I fall off the radar I hope to see you again for Janathon 2016. x
