Help! When did New New Years eve creep up on me so fast?
Janathon starts tomorrow and I’ve still got loads of unwritten posts from December to get round to posting! I guess at least it might give me something to write about in January.
And who’s idea was it that I should spend the New Year finishing off the painting and decorating in our holiday home? Oh, that will be me booking the new carpet for Friday 3rd…
Anyway, Happy New Year and Hello bloggers (or non bloggers) new and old. I’m looking forward to a January of running (or exercising) and blogging (of some sort) everyday!
I’ve had an unusually good preparation for Janathon this year because I’ve (actually been running) been building up to and started marathon training for the London marathon so have run or cross trained 3 to 5 times a week since November.
A couple of weeks ago I got a bit of the parkrun bug back when I went to Fulham Palace parkrun to help Louise celebrate her 100th different uk parkrun venue and a couple of weekends ago ran a great 10K at Regents Park with Alma. Both runs ended up being surprise good runs where I ran good times feeling I was getting back on form. Looks like the training is beginning to pay off! It’s also thanks to the power of running buddies to get me up, out and motivated.
That’s one of the things that I’m looking forward to about Janathon. I might be running on my own many days but I will imagine I have a date with each and every Janathoner for every parkrun or run so will just have to get out there and join you all.
Janathon will be a bit diferent for me this year. I won’t be running every day nor chasing a target total mileage or competing on the ”table of doom”. I will be following my marathon training plan, cross training and using my total rest days for much neglected stretching to avoid injury. Plus there are the other many creative forms of exercise to consider, not to mention the famous Dressing Gown dash!
Bring on Janathon and 2014.
