Juneathon day 7.
Like a few hardcore Juneathoners I thought about Juneathoning in the extreme and giving up alcohol and carbs as well as exercising every day. Being me I had my fingers in my ears for the alcohol bit ’la la la’ (no way is it possible living with two teenage boys and not having a glass of wine) but I did try to cut down seriously on my carbs intake. However I only lasted 4 days (until the pit stop incident on Monday!)
Today I finally fell off the carb wagon big time with the arrival of my parents and a lemon drizzle cake and a large slice at tea time of which I came to regret later.
It rained all day today but fortunately the forecast was right and it cleared for an early evening run. I ran my usual loop of the village with a new change to use a bridle path to cut out the first busy mile of road, gaining a bit more up hill on a rough unmade lane. A bit like taking the high road rather than the low road! All very good training for me I’m sure.
The sun was out and there were plenty of glimpses of blue sky with a very fresh wind (useful when from behind). Otherwise a unevettful run apart from a lemon drizzle cake size stitch in my right rib all the way round!
Juneathon running total… 31.37 miles
