Janathon Day 11: The Deterioration of the Plank


I was meant to go out on a 4 mile run today according to The Plan.  I should have gone out, as I am sure that my mood would have been better than it currently is.  I’ve ended up in a bit of a slump and I’m not entirely sure why.  I find it difficult to relax and I suspect that after a difficult week at work, I am finding it harder than usual.  A run would have helped.

I must make a mental note to get the longer runs done earlier in the day so I can live off of my smugness of having completed it for the rest of the day.  That is my plan for tomorrow’s long run.  I am going to try to beat my 10k time from the Weston Christmas Cracker in December and log it as my time for my Virtual Runner 10k.  I have mixed feelings about whether I will be able to do it.  I’m physically fitter now than I was then, but the course was flat, whereas tomorrow’s plan is undulating.  That will then be my third run logged for Jantastic, so I am on track.

In the spirit of keeping up my Janathon streak, I planked.  In fact, I had a planking competition with Matt.  Yep.  Matt pretty much kicked my bum by doubling my time and some!  I won’t lie, my ego is a bit bruised, as I thought I was the physically fitter of the two of us.  Poop.

And also, I must remember not to wear black and plank on an unhoovered floor where our white and black cat sits.

  1. Good luck with the 10k tomorrow, well done on the plank, and I totally sympathise about the cat hair!

  2. Hope all goes well tomorrow

  3. Good Luck with your 10k tomorrow. I must admit, when I woke up this morning and everyone was tweeting they’d already done their Janathon activity by Parkrunning I was quite jealous I still had my activity to do!

  4. Good luck on the 10k tomorrow, hope it goes well!

  5. Hope the 10k goes well- enjoy!
