Juneathon Day #12

After being told that shopping doesn’t count for Juneathon (except it does really, as me and londonjogger say so), I thought maybe I should do some proper Juneathon stuff and casually mentioned that I was going to the gym at lunchtime whereupon I got nagged encouraged to do some interval training on the treadmill.

This entailed alternating running at 9kph and 10kph for two minutes each, repeating until I lost my balance and fell off the treadmill.  Or something like that.  It was a bit difficult at first as keeping my eye on the clock was distracting me from eyeing up the man on the treadmill in front of me concentrating on keeping my balance but I eventually got into the swing of it.  At 26 minutes I thought I’d better get back to work and with legs like jelly almost bashed my head into the crosstrainer behind me as the gym had appeared to install a moving floor while I’d been busy on the treadmill.

Interval training wasn’t on today’s schedule, so does that mean I’m let off Thursday’s 6 miles? 🙂

Kilometres: 4
Time: 26 minutes
Speed: 9kph / 10kph
Glasses of wine drunk in the interval: 0


  • Fab – well done – what did you think of intervals? They are meant to feel tough – not just on your legs but also on your breathing.

    See how your legs feel on Thursday, don’t overdo it if they’re achey, you could always try a four miler instead?

    You sure you didn’t drink wine in the intervals – might explain the wobbly legs 😉

  • I would say it left me dripping in sweat, but that wouldn’t be very ladylike 🙂

  • What is this Juneathon? What did i miss? oh man!!!

  • Where have you been this time? You keep disappearing! Juneathon is joggerblogger’s creation.

  • I would like to have seen you slide of the treadmill 😉

    Intervals are ace on a running machine, I do them sometimes – It seems to help make running in doors a little more interesting (or is the fact that you struggle to breath that makes the time go faster).

    Keep up the oggling.

  • oh the’ve got one of those moving floors at my gym too… makes the
    trip from treadmill to water fountain slightly surreal.

  • My internets was broked.

  • I haven’t tried running intervals yet,I’m going to give it a go.
