Snow again – Janathon days 18-21

Snow again – Janathon days 18-21

Workouts are tricky in the snow. You can’t run but you can slide.

After a bump in the car on the ice, I embraced the sledge as our mode of transport. It’s a Porsche 918 Spider model – Rod brought it home from work one day looking very pleased with himself.

Bustin’ more moves – Janathon Day 17

Despite last night’s bump, I was not going to let the snow stop me getting to my dance class.

I’d asked Simon if we could do a routine to my favourite Bruno Mars track and bless him, he obliged.

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 […]

Last week I made this video blog about the snow and the different reactions people had
to coping with the weather. Then Monday happened.
A weekend thaw lulled us all into a false sense of security and I, like most of the country,
ventured out in the Monday rush hour only to get a nasty surprise. In a […]
