Distance: 3.61m (6k on treadmill)
Soundtrack: Confessions on a Dancefloor – Madonna
The temperature has dropped here (Luton)- is there more snow predicted? I am a bit (a lot) of a fair weather jogger, and anything below about 4 degrees is a bit too cold for me!! So I went to the gym and just about beat my previous treadmill 5k record! It was 35m30s which I did on the 21/12, but today I did 35m14s. I carried on to 6k and then I was just about done. I was really looking forward to my run today – I had a little swim afterwards too as I find that helps loosen me up, and of course a soak in the jacuzzi…bliss! I took a shot of my 5k time below – I tried to take one of the 6k but it’s too blurry to read so you’ll just have to trust me on that one!
Looking back on yesterdays blog, it was all about food, which pretty much sums up the last 3 days for me. Hubby and I have had 3 days at home on our own, and that always spells disaster as we don’t get a lot of downtime together so we crash out on the sofa, encourage each other to be naughty and revel in our badness! It’s a good job I’ve had Janathon to get me active in the last 3 days otherwise I’d feel far worse than I already do. Anyway, we have decided to restart our healthy eating from tomorrow, so then of course we had to finish last nights bottle of wine, and the bread and cheese and olives…and now we’re on the liquer chocolates!!
I made some jalapeno poppers too – thanks to Corina http://jogalog.wordpress.com for the recipe…well worth the effort although I think the chilli peppers I got were a little toooooo strong as my mouth is still tingling!
To sum up Day 3 – jogged, logged and blogged again. Have impressed myself so far with ability to a) get my arse out and actually exercise 3 days on the trot and b) be disciplined enough to log it and write something about it that people are actually reading and commenting on! I feel like I’ve built up a little community of friends – 20 or so fellow Janathoners that I am checking on every day…I think that’s my limit as any more than that and I’ll lose track of who’s who!
So I’m off now to read all your blogs – well done on Day 3 all!
