Janathon Day 13: Steps, snow and the Spanish subjunctive

I planned to go out for another three miler at 6.30, but Rod was held up at work and as I sat waiting in my kit the snow began falling and the beer began calling (Innes and Gunn Rum Cask).
With a will of steel I resisted – and at 7.30pm I opened the front door to […]

Janathon Day 3: Running unimpeded

I actually can’t remember the last time I went for a run outside on my own.
Before we left Aberdeen I was in a really good gym routine, with a progressive weights programme that was giving me great results. My trainer wasn’t a big fan of running and I was happy to follow his advice… and […]

Feed the fire, break your vision…

….throw your fists up, come on with me….
I was really interested to hear this week that learning music improves a child’s IQ because I’ve always known it’s a magical thing.
No matter what emotional turmoil I’m going through, music will always make me feel better. When I’m knackered it perks me up, when I’m stressed it […]

Bye bye (Lady) Birdy

Like a martyr I went out for a run for Janathon day 22, despite six bruises and what feels like deep tissue damage caused by last night’s Metafit.
It was a short run, only 15 minutes, not quite two miles, in the drizzle and wind with broken headphones.

I’m really sad my headphones are broken, but they […]

Make it count

Finally! A decent workout!
This morning we were up early and headed to Duthie Park – which, for once, was not windy. In fact it was a lovely, still, sunny day and the temperature was 6 degrees according to the car. I put my son in the Superbuggy (it was fixed with Porsche parts!) and ran […]

Like watching mud dry

See the mud on my new shoe? That’s the most exciting thing about my run today.
I feel like I’m losing my mojo a bit. I’ve got a lot on my mind right now so thought a run would sort me out this morning. The first mile and a bit were pretty good, I took one […]

A blue run

The problem with discovering I run better with people to chat to, is that I’m now a bit lonely and bored running on my own.
If it weren’t for Janathon I doubt I would have run this morning. I was knackered after our four hour drive home last night through the torrential rain (concentrating on driving […]

Dawn running

Posted by on Jan 6, 2014 in janathon, Social Media Strategy | 3 Comments

It’s Janathon Day 6 and I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a run so much! I think it was the combination of the breaking dawn, the lightness of not pushing a buggy and the water bottle I grabbed at the last minute. If I hadn’t had work to come back to, I really […]

I think I invented a workout

I said yesterday I might need to get creative with Janathon. I just didn’t expect it to be so soon.
Halfway to the gym I thought I’d better phone and check the creche was open. It wasn’t. I turned round, dashed back inside, grabbed gloves, hats, the toddler’s waterproof suit and boots, my old trainers, the […]
