It’s a slippery slope with Janathon or Juneathon. If you keep up running every day that’s fine, you can’t ruin the run streak. But once you’ve broken that, for whatever reason, it’s far too easy to do so again. Last week I missed a run, and ran only a token 300m on another day because of the snow, which made today’s wiping out all the more easy!
I was home by the afternoon so had a short opportunity to run in the daylight but I was hungry and cold so postponed it until after I picked up the boys. They were late requesting me pick them up and when running round my 2 mile loop (in the car) to get them after 6pm I noticed the sleet, the slippery wet pavements and the sudden acute pain in my calf muscles.
Janathon day 23. Home circuit. I found my hand weights and did lots of arm and shoulder exercises , some proper press ups (my son’s didn’t let me skive) plus 50 squats and 20 lunges.
Next up is a much-needed session on the foam roller and my calf muscles are about to get a going over with this one…
