So, what's all this Juneathon malarkey about ? Well an email popped into the inbox addressed to BB inviting him to join 'Juneathon'... I took a quick look and saw that all you have to do is excercise every day in June, so run it, log it and then blog it !

Well, BB doesn't blog so I thought I'd just sign myself up. And I did. Also, I've been thinking of a way I could get more sports into my blog (rather than food) so this seemed ideal ... and I had wanted to up the exercise ante, and this seemed like the answer to my prayers.

And then I had a rethink. Firstly, I barely find the time to blog usually, so how am I going to blog AND log every single day in June, and also fit in the extra exercise time ?? Next weekend I am away all day on Saturday, so when will I exercise then..?? Sunday I have a half marathon, will I really want to do anything the day after ?

So, before I have even started the Juneathon I am already trying to find shortcuts to get throught the month - how bad is that ? Here's what I came up with...

1) Does my usual walk to work count ? Monday to Friday I walk to work, it's about 2 miles. On a day when I don't run, I have still walked my 2 miles.. so, does the walk count ??

2) The day after my half marathon, will 'stretching' count as exericse?

3) Does spectating at a sports event count ? Today BB did the Bridge Triathlon in Dartford, and OK, I didn't exericse, but I did get up at 6am and hang around for FOUR hours, just for the race to start... and when it did I ran around from pillar to post taking photos and fetching drinks etc. So, does supporting a fellow 'athlete' count ?

So if any of the Juneathon folks are reading, please do leave me a comment and let me know !

In the meantime, I will be doing a little mini blog every day during June to let you know how I get on and what I am up to exercise-wise, and if you fancy joining in yourself then please click the 'Participant' image above and find out all about it, and then Sign Up !!!


  1. I thought this sounded like a good idea except that everyone needs a rest day. All that would happen if I didn't take a day when I needed it would be that I end up injured. So it could work, but I would need to be able to count walking to work and chores. I do plenty of exercise already!

  2. Thank you josiejo, that's my sentiments exactly. I'm not sure how this is going to pan out. As for logging it, I haven't had much fun trying to log my route on the running site... We shall see.. Watch this space ! :o)


Thank you for leaving me a comment !
