Are we nearly there?


Janathon day 15 and we are finally at the half way point. It’s partly going very slowly (when I get to bed and remember I have yet to blog…yet another days limp excuses?) and partly going very fast. (Are we really half way through January?)

To celebrate I decided to go out for a solo run. In true form I procrastinated all morning and it didn’t happen. I couldn’t this afternoon so planned a 5pm run. The time came and it was getting dark, getting windy and felt very cold. I was ready to give in. But how many days have i already made excuses and done a token plank this month? Too many. Five years ago at my first Janathon I ran 5K every day. Have I really got that old and soft?

So I dug out my extra warm running top. You guessed it, yes, the one I’ve had for years but rarely wear because it’s always too warm but because it’s a pretty colour, is nice and soft and cosy (and cost a bomb) I never have the heart to give away. Well it got a trip out the door this evening and I slapped on a beanie hat for good measure and went out to face the cold wind.

My old regular Janathon/Juneathon 5K loop at ‘just go run’ (i.e. it’s too dark to read my watch) pace, and yes I was too hot after 1 mile.

Janathon day 15. 3.2 miles run.

  5. Hero! I remember a Juneathon where I ran every day…. and I thought how can anyone get away with a plank (ehm, times are changing :-)).
