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 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!

Janathon 2020 Day 5: bench press, yoga and cats!

Today is more or less as simple as it says in the title! None of my exercise happened in the morning today, I decided that sleep was important! There was a bit of an amble around at lunchtime, but the main exercise events took place after work. First we made our way down to the…… Continue reading Janathon 2020 Day 5: bench press, yoga and cats!

Janathon 2021 day 3: some yoga.

Today there was some yoga, and a lot of me trying to organise things… However the his post is about Janathon and exercise, so we will leave the organisation until a later date! I had trouble getting into the yoga today, I think it was just one of those days… I did it though and…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 3: some yoga.

Janathon 2021 Day 2: Yoga is hard!

I have a sneaky suspicion that I said the same thing a year ago today! I might even have said it 2 and 3 years ago today. It is now a tradition that I (attempt to) complete the 30 day yoga challenge that Adriene Mischler of Yoga with Adriene leads in January. It is different…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 Day 2: Yoga is hard!

Annoying but not unexpected…

The UK is rushing headlong into a second lockdown, it starts (officially) on Thursday 5th November (yay happy bonfire night) and lasts for 1 month. That is at least 1 month, there is no guarantee that it will actually end after a month, but a month is the paln, for now. So that being taken…… Continue reading Annoying but not unexpected…
