Juneathon Day 8: Take that Juneathon...

As I was a dirty stop-out and arrived home at a quarter to midnight last night (and on a school night too!!!), I've struggled to 'Shine' today so decided to leave this post until later!

I managed to get in a sneaky Juneathon exercise when I suggested to my friend that we should walk to the Take That concert yesterday evening. Of course, she clocked what I was up to but ultimately we both agreed that it would be a better idea than paying an extortionate tenner for parking. As it was, it worked out well as the traffic was a nightmare at the end of the night; I have a feeling I'd still be there now if we'd tried to get home in a car and I'm not sure I'd have had the 'Patience'.

However, it did mean that they ended up 'keeping me up all night' and we arrived home rather late. I'm not sure how Paula has coped today, but I've been half dead... I might be still at an age where I can dance all night, jump up and down and scream like a banshee at 4 grown men on a stage, but my body now screams back at me the next day!

Needless to say, we had the best time in the world... ever! and I would gladly have stayed 'up all night' for the show they put on for us; not even the rain could dampen our spirits. It was certainly a concert I will 'Never Forget'.

Anyway... I'm making very little 'Progress' here and I'm 'Sure', to be honest, 'I've said it all'. I also am in desperate need of a pick-me-up before I take on Juneathon day 9; so I'll leave you for now whilst I hunt down copious amounts of caffeine to consume before running club begins at 7!

Activity: walking and dancing!
Distance: 5.25 miles
Time: 1.39 (including walking around the stadium for a bit and putting the bin out once home as I forgot to press pause!)
Feeling: Like I could 'Rule the World'!


  1. Dancing and jumping up and down must count for Juneathon too? I believe screaming like a banshee is also pretty normal for Juneathoners, concert or not!!

  2. What happened to screaming like a banshee at the 5th grown man?

  3. Oh how exciting! I have tickets to see them at Wembly in a month or so! Was it a good show? Did you have the Pet Shop Boys too?

  4. K - now that was intentional... my screams were very definitely aimed in the direction of 4 of them only... I'll admit I'm not the biggest Robbie fan - although he did warm on me a little, it wasn't enough to deserve my screams!!

    Jo - You'll love it! The BEST show I've ever seen... even by their past standards! AMAZING!!!!
    The Pet Shop Boys were a treat and at the time I thought they were good, but they'd paled into insignificance by the time Take That finished!!!

  5. I hope you manage to relight your fire tomorrow x

  6. Lucky lucky you
