    on Jun 13, 2011 in Elvis Costello Juneathon fall
    I am not really superstitious  but another milestone today on the Juneathon challenge was the 13th of the month. I had plans to do a longer run but had to cut it short when I fell over. Not sure what I tripped on but I came a cropper going round...

    on Jun 12, 2011 in Juneathon rain
    Now here is a novelty. A run in the rain! Yes I left my run on day 12 of Juneathon to this afternoon when it rained. It was lovely once I had got over the initial barrier of stepping out in to the rain. It was a novelty as it we have had the driest s...

    on Jun 10, 2011 in Horringer Farm Juneathon drought
    Already one third of the way through Juneathon and another milestone reached today on day 10. I ran at lunch time after gardening in the morning. There was an odd spot of rain but nothing to wet the garden. My run today was off road around Little Ho...
  • Juneathon Day 9 - 2011Another 4 mile run early this morning at 7.45am as I was gardening at 9.30. Passing the Greene King Brewery my memory was drawn back to the recent Real Beer and Food festival in Bury St Edmunds. This was the 2nd year of this event and I really recomm...

  • Juneathon Day 7 - 2011
    on Jun 7, 2011 in Eddie Kidd London Marathon
    Today I told myself as long as I went out of the door I need only run a mile. Feeling tired today and it was an effort. I got ready for a run about 8am but sat around and I left it to late before I had to go to work. So mid day came around and I fel...

    on Jun 6, 2011 in Run Breeze Juneathon Voltz Nick Lowe

  • Juneathon Day 5 - 2011
    on Jun 5, 2011 in Placebo Juneathon Voltz roses
    Day 5 means I have already reached the milestone of one sixth of the way to completion of Juneathon. Looked at that way it means a very small slice of the overall 30 day event we call Juneathon but time flies when you are enjoying your self. Today b...
  • Juneathon Day 4
    on Jun 4, 2011 in Juneathon
    So far so good with Juneathon 2011. No aches or pains and I was able to do another 4 miles this morning at 8am. My only real problem is lack of time preventing me from running longer or having much time to blog about it. Take today after my run I ha...
  • Juneathon Day 3 - Saxongate Nature Reserve
    on Jun 3, 2011 in Saxongate Water Meadow
    On a warm summers day the Saxongate Nature Reserve in Bury St Edmunds is a good spot for a run with plenty of shade to be found under the cover of tall trees. It also has the benefit of being next to the Greene King Brewery site and this morning I am...
  • Juneathon 2011 Day 2 - RunBreeze SocksAnother lovely warm and sunny day and with no side effects from yesterdays run there were no barriers to me doing a 5 miler. The only real constraint was time as I needed to be back in order to meet with a cousin who out of the blue contacted me to d...
  • Juneathon 2011 Day 1
    on Jun 1, 2011
    With military precision I commenced Juneathon 2011 at 7.30am. Today I am so busy that virtually every minute is occupied with a task through until 9.30pm this evening. So unfortunately only time for a short run this morning of 3 miles. Hence a short...

  • Lucozade Sport Body Fuel Drink
    on May 12, 2011 in Lucozade
    I haven't had much time recently to run. I have been working long hours which has meant I haven't been exercising as much as I would have liked. I have been particularly busy over the last week but the yearning to go for a run was too strong to be de...
