My plan for Juneathon is simple. Run all the runs on my training plan, complete all the exercise sessions on my sadistic bodyweight training app* and fill in any rest days with a token something or other.
Today was a rest day as far my training plan was concerned, and a plyometrics** day on the sadistic app, but as (a) I didn’t get home from work until nearly nine, (b) each of the exercise sessions is 45 mins long and (c) my training plan specified “Total Rest, Stretching Only”, I was very tempted to make today a token day and count running for the bus as my Juneathon activity***.
But that would be sensible, and where’s the fun in that? So I stuck to my guns, ignored the Total Rest instruction (something which will almost certainly come back to haunt me) and pressed play on my app****.
3 down, 27 to go.
*Volt Fitness, should anyone care
**aka jumping. Squat jumps, tuck jumps, slalom jumps, rope jumps (with an imaginary rope), split jumps and one legged hops interspersed with some squatting, lunging and lifting.
***I’ve done it before. I shall no doubt do it again.
