- Day One of Janathon
- Coughing up the lining of my lungs
It was a combination that I would prefer not to repeat. Thank god I have a day off running tomorrow … bugger.
Actually I am going to cheat with Janathon. I’m doing a half marathon in March and my training plan has plenty of rest days which I have every intention of taking. But just sitting around on the rest days really would be cheating so I’m going to follow the Gorilla bodyweight exercise app on those days.
Of course, when I say I have a half marathon plan I mean I have no plan what so ever. A brief look through the internet shows that most plans require more weeks than I have so I’m going to have a search around for the shortest plan going.
I seem to have a mild cold that is making me snivel constantly and has given me a slightly irritated throat. And because of this I am acting like I am about to go down with the flu. I am a wimp.
I have managed to do some exercise every day but yesterday I could not muster the energy to even type a single sentence. I did find the energy to attempt to do some hill sprints. Just for fun. I think I need a steeper hill, or one without side roads that I have to stop at, to run faster or perhaps I just needed to do a few more. I had a speedy glance at the internet (yes, the whole thing) before I left the house and the general consensus was that three sprints of 8-10 seconds would be more than enough. They were hard and at the end it took a good long street’s worth of walking to get my breath back but I expected some more muscle fatigue.
Actually, I think my lungs may be much less fit than my legs. Perhaps that’s it. Seems likely.
Today I was feeling sorry for myself so when I had unloaded the girls at their educational establishments I went straight home, did a Gorilla app workout and then lay down until it was time to collect them.
