As regular readers might have gathered, I failed in my Juneathon mission mid-way through the month. After the chav-spotting escapade on day 13, I did follow up with two back-to-back British Military Fitness sessions on days 14 and 15. However, it was game over after that. Friends in need, pressure of work – there are […]
By Sunday morning, I was up at Phil’s for a five-miler around his neighbourhood. We decided have a friendly bet on the number of houses bedecked with England flags, which he cannot stand what with their thuggish connotations. I’m not a big fan either – give me a Union Jack any day – but it’s […]
It was all going downhill at the end of the working week. I just can’t quite manage to fit in work, running, blogging and social life – not to mention food – every single day. However, I resolved to try harder when reading the exploits others. The likes of TravellingHopefully and FitArtist are putting me […]
Hmmm, did plan for a run. Then plans changed and I ate curry, drank wine then ate half of a massive bar of Dairy Milk with a girlfriend. Ooops.
It’s all going downhill after a relatively promising start. I was in London for a conference yesterday, and took the opportunity of a rare mid-week catch-up with the fella. Instead of Juneathoning, we had fish and chips at the Brill Grill and shared a bottle of wine. Bugger.
I seem to have previously missed the Juneathon rule about doing the actual blogging bit On The Appropriate Day. Is this a new one this year JogBlog? Thanks to people like me, The Independent Adjudicator, aka iliketocount, is having terrible trouble keeping up. So anyway, back to Wednesday. I did actually go to British Military […]
I love cake. However, I can tell you with certainty that sometimes you shouldn’t eat it. Not just over an hour before a Juneathon run anyway. I succumbed to the lure of a white chocolate and raspberry muffin accompanied by a (skinny) latte at Costa Coffee at Paddington this afternoon after a meeting so boring […]
“Beautiful evening,” Instructor Dan said, as two sideways raindrops landed inside my left ear, thereby proving the point that British Military Fitness instructors occasionally lack a full grasp of reality. They also possess a faint disregard for the fitness of mere mortals. This evening’s session incorporated 3.4 miles of running, and well over 150 press-ups, […]
Following the wedding party yesterday, we stayed overnight in a hotel about three miles away – leaving the car at the venue and getting a lift back with friends to the hotel. So, it was up and out this morning to run back to get the car. Only I’d forgotten to pack a sports bra, […]
After my unscheduled stomp back home last night, it was a bit of a lazy start. But, with Juneathon in mind, Phil and I went out for the 5-mile run down to Dinton Pastures, round the first lake and back along the river again. It was humid and I was a bit dehydrated, so it […]
