Running Free Online calendar showing the Juneathon activity so far
Last time I posted, I said I was off to London the next day and my activity would probably be a bar press up. Although I did visit a few bars – my favourite being the one with the skull disco ball, safari wallpaper and cocktails in teacups – I forgot to do a bar press up.
Skull disco ball pleases my inner goth
I did, however, walk the two miles to the station in the morning instead of getting a lift. That definitely counts.
On Sunday I did fuck all except walk to Tesco to buy wine. I’m not sure that counts.
On Monday I didn’t even walk to Tesco. That doesn’t count no matter how many ways I try to change ‘didn’t even walk to Tesco’ into something more strenuous.
Tuesday should have been the start of my marathon training but after three hours of trying unsuccessfully to tell myself to get out the door and go for a run, I decided I’d rather get dressed instead. I’m not sure ‘getting dressed’ counts.
Wednesday I cycled seven miles and walked seven miles. That even more definitely counts than ‘walked two miles to the station’.
Thursday was another ‘can’t be fucking arsed’ day, although I did go to the designer outlet and look at Asics running shoes, so maybe that counts?
Today – Friday – my marathon training schedule said I had to run three miles and I decided I would really hate myself if I slacked off another marathon training run, especially in the very first week, so I forced myself out the door and although I mostly walked the three miles, at least I did it.
Tomorrow, my marathon training schedule says I have to run six miles, so I’m hoping the motivation fairies visit me in the night.
Running: 3 miles (most of it walking)
