Janathon #30 – Fitterer and strongerer

I had a cracking night last night.  After buying a new cossie, I had my annual swim (in a 3ft deep pool – lots of splashing around and, for some reason, trying to do underwater hamstring stretches) and sauna (awesome, I want one in the back garden) followed by a couple of pints in the hotel bar. The rest of the evening went as predicted yesterday (apart from a change to a less terrifying DJ, yay!) and we eventually staggered to bed around 3.30ish. I’ve been asleep most of this afternoon…

At around 2am, Ginge was forced to endure a giddy stream of consciousness as I reflected on the general marvellousness of Janathon. At one point it went something like this “… and I feel fitter and stronger….What can I do next month?…I’ve got to carry on…I want to be fitterer and strongerer….”. So that’s my goals sorted for next month. Fitterer and strongerer.

Today’s run was snuck in before darkness fell, I was only going to do 2 miles but felt ok so I carried on to 3.

Nearly there...

    fitterer and strongerer sounds like a great goal… I might make that my goal to, it’ll work well for my marathon training! Enjoy your final Janathon run tomorrow 🙂

      There was over 12 hours between bed and run. And I did have an extra 3 hours in bed this afternoon…

      Not sure, but every time I go in a shallow pool I start wanting to lunge and stretch things. I have no idea why….

    Ah, but you are. Fitterer and strongerer.

    Yes, I do a swimming lesson with Hector once a week in a shallowish pool, and my legs feel knackered after from all the squatting, so I’m guessing it works for stretching too.

    Your weekend sounds ace, DJs, bingo…what more could you want?!

    I think I was going to write something inspiring here earlier but I had a lie down on the sofa at 8 ish and have just woken up (00:45 !). Thought I’d best write something before going to bed. Enjoy the final day of Janathon.
