running blog

Just when you thought it was safe…


to venture into blog world…. its back … and its Juneathon, relative of Janathon and a festival of activity and excuses!

Run or exercise and blog about it every day in June.

So, having fallen off the blog wagon its time to get going again!

I won’t list all the reasons why I havent blogged for 8 weeks.  Needless to say all or any of those excuses you can think of probably apply.

I didn’t fall off the exercise wagon.  I’ve continued to go to British Military Fitness at least twice a week, because even when motivation is in short supply,  its easy to turn up meet up with a great bunch of people and go with the flow, letting the instructors do the motivating!

I’ve also kept up a bit of running.  Not crazy mileage like Janathon, not great focussed training for a race, but just enough to keep the legs moving and lungs panting and fill in the gaps when I couldn’t go to BMF.

So now its very exciting  to have the motivational buzz back, looking forward to Juneathon and warm light evening runs and beautiful mornings rather than the dark cold of January.

But.. Two days before Juneathon starts there is the small matter of the Bupa London 10K and this week my race pack arrived.  Suddenly I’ve got enough motivation for everyone and am trying to do 12 weeks training in 12 days… oops. Too late as usual!  Even matching last years time is looking too much like hard work.

This week so far… 2 BMF classes, 2 mile run  at 10K race pace (knackering) and a 4 mile run today.  We shall see!

  1. 12 weeks training in 12 days sounds familiar 😉

  2. BMF = 4 mile run (or so I tell myself) LOL
    For Junathon, can you count a session of BMF as a run?

  3. Welcome back! I’m trying to do the same along did fall off the exercise wagon……
