An email landed in my inbox this morning to say that Janathon is 5 years old in 2015. Janathon being the annual event where you exercise and blog every day. In January. Janathon.
I did reasonably well in Janathon last year until the final push, and I actually look back on my new year of 2014 rather fondly, despite the truly atrocious weather that we had. I got to grips with my yoga, and running was going reasonably well too.
This has got me thinking… Shall I sign up again? I appear to have better Janathon success over Juneathons (the summer equivalent), and it would tie in nicely with my intended gym return. Not only would the exercise help, but I haven’t been blogging too much lately. It isn’t for a lack of things going on either (and I promise I will get to blogging about them soon). Janathon might be the injection I need into writing AND exercising again. There is really only one truly difficult bit, and that is keeping momentum. I also struggle to keep up with my blog reading during this time. Things are easier now that you can tweet or Facebook about your activities though. Janathon is still a thought, but quite possible.
One thing I am not signing up for though is Jantastic. I think it’s a really good idea, especially if you’re running properly (i.e. regularly) now, and I like the idea of a team, but I felt bad letting my team down when I petered out.
Are you a Janathoner or a Jantastic (or both)?
