Reboot Days 139-145: A nothing week

I haven’t done nothing. I have done a lot of the normal activities that I do, some walking, some running, some dancing some gymming. It has just not been as dedicated as it normally is. Gym sessions have been somewhat minimal (apart from PT) and running has been less frequent than it should have been.…… Continue reading Reboot Days 139-145: A nothing week

I did a running thing…

I ran a 10K!!! I was going to lead up to that with some sort of suspense building preamble… apparently I am excited about it and I blurted it out just like that! A couple of months ago, when it seemed very far off in both time and running ability, I entered the Thruxton 10k…… Continue reading I did a running thing…

Reboot days 106 – 124: well… the system works… and other pictures…

I am extremely far behind and I started this post 3 weeks ago… so I am leaving the beginning as it is then you will get a lot of pictures for the intervening days… and I will restart with aplomb from today 😁 The system I mean is the system of listening to people who…… Continue reading Reboot days 106 – 124: well… the system works… and other pictures…

Day 99: Tuesdays are getting better

Do you remember the time I knew a girl from mars… Ok…that wasn’t what I meant to say, but I can’t start a sentence “Do you remember…” without saying that afterwards. I can make it relevant though I promise. Tuesday is named for Tyr Norse God of war, Tyrsday became Tuesday. In the Roman pantheon…… Continue reading Day 99: Tuesdays are getting better

Reboot day 91-97: Week of running…

Well…not only running, but there is a high proportion of running. To be exact 5/10 workouts from the last 7 days have been running. I suppose in reality that isn’t a high proportion, is just 50% but it is a lot for me… However, 3 runs in 3 days on top of the last two…… Continue reading Reboot day 91-97: Week of running…

Day 85: Tremendous tuesday!

I know!! A most unexpected reaction to a Tuesday isn’t it?!! Well, it was! Tremendous! I had PT in the morning which was HIIT (second time in 2 days…Matt must be psychic!) and intervals on a treadmill. Yes that’s right…I went on a treadmill and I didn’t die!! Then, in my lunchbreak I went for…… Continue reading Day 85: Tremendous tuesday!

Reboot Day 78: 78 Take two…carry on regardless!

oooh! oooh! I can have another 90s song reference here!! On tuesday I went for a run. I didn’t really want to but I went anyway because I don’t hate it and often actually like it once I get going 🙂 Also I have a half marathon to train for so shirking is not an…… Continue reading Reboot Day 78: 78 Take two…carry on regardless!

Reboot day 70: Sunday run-day

Sunday was raining. I pottered around in the morning doing things and hoping that it would stop and dry up and become a good running weather day… It didn’t… But, come 4pm when it was still peeing down, I decided that there was no real choice, I had to go anyway. After all I bailed…… Continue reading Reboot day 70: Sunday run-day

Reboot days 59 – 65: a pictorial journey through the last week…

Day 59: Wednesday…Gym and tatters… As is customary for a Wednesday now, the gym was at the unnatural hour of 6:30! A time when we can, to be honest, barely remember what exercise is let alone how to do any… however, we managed a mainly upper body session of bench press, rows, shoulder press, chest…… Continue reading Reboot days 59 – 65: a pictorial journey through the last week…

Day 58: You can’t have too much hip flexibility for running…

The title is a quote from my awesome running friend Susie, (I have told you about her here)Wit a couple of exceptions, which would probably lead to bigger problems than just running, she is right. However, I don’t have any…well…I have some, I can move my legs and sit down and stand up and stuff.…… Continue reading Day 58: You can’t have too much hip flexibility for running…
