1. do some marking

3. do some more marking
4. eat lunch
5. do some more marking

By which point, the time had reached 4.07pm (precisely!). Plans for the day to come included:
1. walk Doris
2. do some more marking
3. go to the cinema with Mik to watch X-men (Which incidently was really good... First Class in fact! You should go and watch it!!
4. do some more marking.
As intelligent people, I doubt I need to spell out the dilemma - but I'm going to anyway - When was I going to E-X-E-R-C-I-S-E?
For those of you who were following in January, you will remember the craziness of Janathon, where I ran, blogged, and was followed by (dead) squirrels every day. Well Juneathon is a very similar event except there are no squirrels (yet) and I don't plan to run everyday; if you have been following since January, the 'no running everyday' idea will make perfect sense because you will also be aware that in the intermediary period, I have run the London Marathon and consequently broken my running. Juneathon requires physical activity / exercise everyday, rather than running specifically so this is the approach I have chosen to take for Janathon's warmer sibling.
Therefore, with today being not only day one of Juneathon but also National Running Day it was imperative that I ensured some exercise was achieved and that really this exercise should be running.
'So, What did you do?' I hear you cry... 'What did you do?'
|Doris and I do Day 1 of Juneathon in style... dress, mac and trainers|
This counts as Juneathon activity because:
1. If I had just been taking Doris for a walk, I would not have put trainers on - trainers are for exercising in!
2. If I had just been taking Doris for a walk, I would have not inserted little mini bursts of running into the walk - in fact, I just completed some Fartlek training!
3. If I had just been taking Doris for a walk, I would not have bored you with a blog about it, or recorded the activity with the Nike app on my shiny new iphone and neither would I have added the activity to Run Saturday.
4. and finally, if I had just been taking Doris for a walk, Lance Armstrong would not have personally congratulated me on achieving a personal best!
So, Day one of Juneathon... done.
Activity: walk / run
Distance: 1.33 miles
