Janathon Day 9 – silver tights are mine

Not quite up at 5:30am as planned. Not even up at 6:30. Just about made it up by 7, although it was dark and I was warm but unless I slept through January, it was still Janathon and I wanted to go for a run before going to university, so that meant getting out of bed. Hang on, did I say ‘wanted to go for a run’? Blimey, Janathon is doing strange things to me, that’s three runs this week; I’m not sure I’ve run three times in the last three months.

Because I went out bang on school run mum time (despite it mostly being school run dads from what I could see this morning), my run was a bit stop/start for the first half a mile on the road where the primary school is, then it was stop/start for the next half a mile because of all the mud and puddles, then it was stop/start again as I collided with another school run going to another school. Still, three miles was done, just mostly at a walk.

Then, because the lifts at the station are being renovated, I had to carry my heavy mountain bike up the stairs and when I got to university, I ended up walking up and down three flights of stairs three times, then two flights of stairs twice and if I’d known that was going to happen, I’d have counted that for today’s Janathon exercise, especially as I asked on the Janathon Facebook page if I could carry some of it over to tomorrow and was told ‘no’.


Still, my run this morning meant I got to wear my new silvery grey running tights.




I’ve got an assignment due tomorrow, can I count writing as exercise?

    Cool tights.

    Writing is not exercise. Even if you use an exercise book.

    Are the tights from H&M by any chance?

      They’re from sportsshoes.com – do H&M have a sportswear range now? I’ll have to check it out!

    Maybe if you wore wrist weight as you typed…

    This is a bit random, are those RunBreeze socks? And are the any good?

      Just checked and yes, they are RunBreeze socks, but I don’t really like them. They seem to be in two layers which makes them a bit uncomfortable. Plus they’re low on the ankle and feel like they’re going to end up under your feet. If that makes sense?

      My favourite socks are some cheapy Reebok (I think) I got years ago.
