Juneathon day 7

As planned, I went out with my husband and plodded 5 miles around the village. The plodding was hard work – it was warmer than I expected and I’d forgotten how long it was since I’d done more than 3ish miles. There’s also something about running together that turns me into a particularly unlikeable, whingy 6 year old (practically getting to the foot stamping “my legs don’t work…”) kind of stage after a whole 10 minutes. Although I had the upper hand by having the house key, I was annoying myself so snaped out of it and on we went.

I’m not from the village where we live, but he has lived here all his life. As a result, trips around the village are interspersed with pointed out landmarks of where he used to deliver papers, went with his family or got drunk up trees. I also got to see three disused mines and where they used to hide priests.

I needed a couple of walking breaks and found that it was one of those runs where it was my head letting me down – I found it very easy to wimp out of hills and the like. At the end, we were both very hot and sweaty, and although I was a bit disappointed with the time, we did what we set out to do.

So that’s a week of Juneathon completed.

Juneathon week one:

  • 14ish miles run
  • One hour’s unco-ordinated flailing aerobics
  • One and a half hour’s yoga
  • One and a bit hour’s Wii fit

    I’ve been disappointed with the fact that I’m only managing really short runs now, compared with a year ago. But at least Juneathon’s getting us all out there more than we perhaps would under normal circumstances!

    That’s one of the things that I’m loving about it, Saturday I wouldn’t have done anything (and would have gone all guilty and down on myself for it) and then Sunday the lie in would have carried on through the Archers and then I’d have found some reason not to go out.

    I think I need to remind myself that this time last year, the idea of even thinking about running 5 miles was laughable.
