Juneathon – Day 15 – 19 (I’m here)

Sorry I haven’t written anything in a few days but I’ve been very stressed and writing on my blog hasn’t been foremost in my mind. My Uncle My Uncle Gordon in Canada passed away last week and he’ll certainly be missed.  Unfortunately I couldn’t be there with the rest of the clan to say my […]

Juneathon – Day 13 & 14 (Push, Run, Walk)

A nice weekend and some more great Juneathon effort put in; even if I do say so myself! Yesterday was a non-running day for me and I opted for even more push-ups and did 5 sets of 20, 25, 20, 20 & 20.  The push-ups have felt great and I’m looking forward to continuing them […]

Juneathon – Day 11 & 12 (Back to normal)

The running continues and it’s feeling great!  Yesterday I did 10.86km (6.74 miles) at a total average pace of 05:30 min/km (08:52 min/mile).  I built some speedwork into that run and did a few kms of 250 metre repeats.  250 metres at faster than usual pace followed by 250 metres at slightly slower than usual […]

Juneathon – Day 10 (Living Away from Family)

I wasn’t going to post anything today; I was just going to save it until tomorrow.  As you can see I have changed my mind. I received an email from my sister in Canada (my whole family lives in Canada – where I’m originally from) saying that my uncle (mum’s brother) is in the hospital and […]

Juneathon – Day 9 (It’s goooood!)

“I believe in the runner’s high, and I believe that those who are passionate about running are the ones who experience it to the fullest degree possible. To me, the runner’s high is a sensational reaction to a great run! It’s an exhilarating feeling of satisfaction and achievement. It’s like being on top of the […]

Juneathon – Day 8 (Rest Day)

“I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.” – Jesse […]

Juneathon – Day 6 & 7 (Running Again)

“Now you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was ever going somewhere, I was running!” – Forrest Gump What a great morning it was today.  I got ready to go for my run and I WAS going to head to […]

Juneathon – Day 5 (Pushing Up)

As the title suggests, it’s day 5 of Juneathon and I’m still doing push-ups and no running. I decided to take the advice of Highway Kind and not stress about the lack of running at the moment.  My lungs don’t feel the greatest (although they are much better) at the moment because of the cold […]

Juneathon – Day 4 (Getting Better)

I woke up this morning hoping to feel well enough to attempt a slow easy run for a mile or two but unfortunately my lungs felt like they were on fire.  I also had a bit of a coughing fit and coughed up loads of things (phlegm, car keys, phlegm, kitchen sink and more phlegm) […]

Juneathon – Day 3 (Still Sick)

I haven’t got much to say I’m afraid. No work today and certainly no running either. At this very moment I am able to breathe through my nose but the pain in my sinuses is unbelievable. I’ve never had anything like it before. Regardless, this evening I’ve completed yet more push-ups to ensure I haven’t […]
