Janathon 2022 day 4 & 5: distracted by a ukulele

Yes, a ukulele you read that right! Well actually, to be completely accurate, 2 ukuleles, but that is beside the point! It hasn’t stopped me doing exercise but it has taken up quite a bit of my time… This is extremely likely to be the reason that the exercise I did on day 4 (Tuesday)…… Continue reading Janathon 2022 day 4 & 5: distracted by a ukulele

Janathon 2022: Days 2 & 3

The beginning of January is a strange time, I sort of end up feeling like the year doesn’t actually start until I go back to work. There is probably some sort of deep seated problem with that, and me running my life around work or something, if I decided to explore it… Or it could…… Continue reading Janathon 2022: Days 2 & 3

Janathon 2022: day one – Happy New Year and all that!

Well, it’s 2022 and it has been for almost a whole day and so far so good… As it tradition I have set myself some goals and written them down so I don’t forget. I might forget actually, I sometimes do but writing them down helps! If you’ve been here before, you will notice that…… Continue reading Janathon 2022: day one – Happy New Year and all that!

Janathon 2021 day 17: a squat Paddington

Or to put it in terms that a new reader of this blog might understand… a new squat personal best 😁 I decided it was leg day in the gym, and was feeling particularly enthusiastic so I thought I’d try a 90kg squat! It went better than I expected and I managed 3… then another…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 17: a squat Paddington

Janathon 2021 day 13-16: a migraine…

After Tuesday’s progress, I only managed to walk on Wednesday followed by nothing on Thursday or Friday… this was due to what turned out to be my first migraine in over a year! It took me until Wednesday lunchtime to give in but then I slept for quite a lot of hours! The good news…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 13-16: a migraine…

Janathon 2021 day 12: progress is progress!

This time last year (almost to the day) I got an overhead press PB of 31kg. I was so pleased because my overhead has always been my weakest lift. I had ignored shoulders for years and ended up with a bit of an injury so this was me starting out on my journey to get…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 12: progress is progress!

Janathon 2021 day 11: progress

I think there is a chance I might be getting slightly better at this yoga thing. Not good…but better and progress is progress 🙂 I think I say the same thing about 10 days into every 30 days of yoga, it just goes to show that consistency is important! Yes I know, I’ve said that…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 11: progress

Janathon 2021 days 8 – 10: Janathon catch-up in pictures

Cheaty catch-up post here I come… well, what counts is the exciting exercise I have been doing… or, on some of the days, the exciting resting! Rest is important too you know 🙂 I have exercised every day, but not as many different forms as I would like…still it I am building back up from…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 days 8 – 10: Janathon catch-up in pictures

Janathon 2021 day 7: the return of Shaun T

Banished as I am to my dining room (or working from home if you prefer) I decided to reintroduce a habit that I started during the first lockdown way back in March… Cardio lunchtimes! Today’s cardio session of choice was Alpha Cardio from Focus T25. As well as the jumping about, it was day 6…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 7: the return of Shaun T

Janathon 2021 day 6: a wall!

Not the metaphorical wall that athletes hit, but a real wall, made of bricks. Yes it is relevant, a wall is the only thing I took a picture of while I was walking around during my lunch break today! Look here it is! I tried to make it look more interesting… I also did my…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 6: a wall!
