Snow excuse


Today for the first time during Janathon or Juneathon I haven’t run. London was snow free for an hour after driving my sons (pampered, yes) to school but my leg and glute muscles were not warm, loosened nor awake and sense told me to stick to my plans not to run early or go to BMF to avoid innjury, even if it meant missing today’s opportunity.

Instead I walked to the shops, twice (2 miles exactly, half of which carrying shopping.)

As the pavements will be too icy to run on tomorrow, I seriously toyed with the idea of going to parkrun which is on soft grass so less slippy to get a run in. Unfortunately my local one has now been cancelled so my return to parkrun will have to wait another week.

Janathon, Day 18: Two miles walked plus 20 press-ups. (Proper ones, yes toes not knees on the floor)

  1. Sounds sensible to me. I can’t do sensible but know that I should thus am very in awe of anyone who can!

  2. I have been a wuss in the snow too! Dog loves the snow, so we did a 5 mile walk this morning, but tomorrow I am determined to go out there and run on the common 🙂
