Widnes Parkrun

I dropped the ball over the last few nights on blogging, I basically fell asleep on the sofa pre-blog. So I have ended the blog everyday portion of my Janathon. Today however was the Widnes Parkrun and their 3rd birthday. The course itself is 3 loops of Victoria Park in Widnes. So it is pretty…

#Janathon day 15: Walking & Running

I forgot to set my alarm! I thought I had but I had neglected to press save. Thankfully I wake up around the right time anyway and only lost 15min waking at 645 instead of 630. It was raining when I went out with Doug but we had a nice walk. Thankfully by the time…

#Janathon day 14: Walking & yoga

It was chilly this morning but still nice to get out. I still wasn’t feeling the run so Doug got longer walks. He enjoyed himself at least! My walk total was just over 6miles for today. I also did about 30mins of yoga which I think is helping me loosen up. Week 2 totals: Running…

#Janathon day 13: Walking and napping

Today didn’t go as planned. I wanted to do a wee run, go for a cycle and then do some shopping. I got up late, managing to sleep till 9, then walked Doug. My back was killing so I decided to leave the run, then feeling no better I left the cycle, then I did…

#Janathon day 12: work & Walking

Well I was up at 530 to get to the office on the bus as I have no transport at the moment. Doug was walked and I headed to the office. It was another long day but I managed over 7km Walking including Doug and to & from the office. Tomorrow I’m hoping to run,…

#Janathon day 11: Walking and pain

When the alarm went off I couldn’t get out of bed, everything hurt and it took a while to get going which made me late. I walked Doug and got ready for work and the headed out. Another standard nursing day meant too many appointments, not enough fluids, not enough time, no food and a…

#Janathon day 10: walk, run, work

The unwelcome noise of the alarm chimed at 630 and Doug reluctantly joined me down stairs as I got ready for our walk. We stepped out into the misty morning and set off. I don’t think he was convinced but accepted it was happening eventually. Once I got back I dished out his breakfast which…

#Janathon day 9: wee run and a couple of wanders

I was thinking about a longer run but it was cold, windy and my knee was sore. I decided it wasn’t sore enough to justify not running, but I figured I would do a mile and push myself as I have been averaging 12min miles. After walking Doug and sorting out around the house I…

#Janathon day 8: an unexpected run

It was another late start today as I was off. The temp was reading -5 and Doug wasn’t keen, I eventually got bored of waiting for him at 830 and off we went. We had a nice walk and despite some skipping and doggy looks he took it in good spirits. Once I got back…

#Janathon day 7: another run managed

It was a bit cold this morning! We got up about 7 but Doug wasn’t for getting up. So we went back to bed. When it got to 9 he was ready so off we went. Everything was still a bit frozen but despite the frosted look it wasn’t icy. We had a decent walk…

#Janathon day 6: I ran

Well I finally ran! I did the Parkrun today in St Helens. It was an early start with a Doug walk and the off to Victoria Park with Dave. The course itself takes in quiet a few loops, but I was a decent course and there was plenty of space to pass and be passed….

#Janatahon day5: still not running

Just a quickie, as I still can’t run today’s total was 6.65k of Walking. Tomorrow I am trying a Parkrun! I really need to move properly. The walk today was a Doug walk he fancied a little bit further this morning and I had time so we kept going. I almost forgot to post but…
