Day 7 of Juneathon will be remembered for my third run of the month, elite athletics, more SPSS and Bradley Wiggins breaking the UCI hour record.
The sun in combination with my rubbish curtains ensured that once again I was awake far too early for my liking. As I couldn’t get back to sleep I decided to head out for a run before it got too warm. The run felt pretty easy and I think that my fitness levels are slowly starting to increase. Although I think it’s time for me to increase the length of my runs, I still don’t feel ready to run more than 3-4 times a week.
The remainder of my Sunday morning was spent gardening and doing some long overdue housework. I’m pretty sure that Sunday mornings are designed to be slightly more enjoyable.
The afternoon was spent trying to watch both the athletics and the French Open final. I wish that the BBC would focus more on live athletics action and less on Gatlin et al. I watched the men’s 100m final and gave up, next time I’ll watch the coverage on British Eurosport #moan
After a late afternoon Sunday snooze I cooked myself an awesome meal of pasta with a twist and then settled down to watch the UCI hour record attempt on Sky. I was left wanting the answers to loads of stupid questions… How is it possible to remain in such an uncomfortable position on a bike for an hour? How far would an average cyclist cover in an hour? What is the point?
I don’t think that I’ll be getting back on my bike any time soon.
At the end of the first week of Juneathon I’ve completed 3 runs, walked a lot more than normal, completed level one of the 30 Day Shred twice, and worn myself out gardening. Week 2 of Juneathon will hopefully include a lot more running and some attempts at a new Jillian Michaels workout I’ve tracked down on YouTube.
Cumulative Juneathon Distance: 10.93 km
