I went a little mad in Janathon. After an icy Christmas with very little running and even less running enthusiasm, I played catch up early in the new year and found myself hovering at around 5th place on the table of doom. Which started me thinking about what I could achieve. The answer: four 50 mile weeks in a row, and my highest mileage month ever.
I’d be tempted to try something similar again for Juneathon, but with exams and assignment deadlines, it’s simply not feasible. So instead, I am trying something a little different.
Specifically an alternating mixture of lower body work, upper body work, core work, cardio work and jumping.
I think it might just kill me. Certainly after one session of the jumping, I have worse DOMS than after my 50 miler. Despite only managing about one tenth of the suggested programme. June could be a loooooooong month!
