IdkickJilliansAss Fri 30-May-14 18:44:18

I'm in! It will be a good excuse to resurrect my neglected blog

Eek! Just done it, but will be tweeting not blogging. Did a trial run in Janathon where I didn't join officially but did manage to exercise every day! Not sure how Juneathon will go as I have a hilly HM next weekend bu I guess it will make me do some active recovery!!

link link link so can all encourage one another

I did make a new twitter, think it was madfatrunner or something like that but haven't actually used it and don't remember password so might need to start again

Am technophobe so not sure how to link! But am lizzyhilton67 on twitter if that helps!

roquefortlover Fri 30-May-14 22:19:37

In fact am wondering if I am already in discussion with an MNer on Twitter as I have been exchanging tweets with someone who is doing Whipsnade...

Mitchy1nge Fri 30-May-14 23:54:14

think I've found you and am following you

have never quite found my way around twitter blush even my parents are more comfortable there than me and they are practically neolithic

IdkickJilliansAss Sat 31-May-14 08:54:16

I'm not on twitter so will be updating on FB, can add on MFP though? I'm Jilliansgirl on there smile

Tis is just the kick up the arse I need. Can i join in?

Gym closed and I am suffering as no alternative and not motivated to find time to run more than once a week.

Yay! And I will tweet/blog too. Fantastic and thank you for inspiration!

Mitchy1nge Sat 31-May-14 11:21:29

smile thanks for adding me on MFP

yay kitchenfairy! will you run every day?

Mitchy1nge Sat 31-May-14 13:31:59

how is one meant to make a blog about running slowly and not even for a very long way remotely interesting though?

IdkickJilliansAss Sat 31-May-14 14:06:50

Lie about weird things you saw on the run!

Mitchy1nge Sat 31-May-14 14:12:30

I was just about to say 'what am I likely to see where I run' but actually I ran into the unlicensed shotgun man again the other day, turns out he shoots rabbits for the owl sanctuary

but he is really fucking weird, full camouflage as if the bunnies are likely to see him and return fire

will just let it be boring then I can go on and on about cadence and calories and stuff

I've microblogged my KB workout on their FB page, it was eventful trying to do it with all 3 kids swarming about

Mitchy1nge Sun 01-Jun-14 13:53:46

have cycled 12 miles but blogging on this phone will be far too much effort

IdkickJilliansAss Sun 01-Jun-14 17:03:37

My DH went on a 126 mile ride today, I want to pretend it was me!

dizzyday07 Mon 02-Jun-14 01:09:37

Day 1 done! 4.5k cycle ride with DD

Mitchy1nge Tue 03-Jun-14 16:37:01

good work! How was day 2, and 3 so far? Yesterday I did the 3 easy miles from running plan and walked same distance in evening. Today is meant to be a rest day so did a runner's world yoga thing which was great.

roquefortlover Tue 03-Jun-14 21:12:09

I might try your yoga thing later in the week Mitchy,it might be a good loosener before or after my half on Sunday! Slow start to juneathon forme, but otoh have done something every day, and am not meant to be running too much this week due to tapering for aforementioned half. So not too bad! Trying not to eat too much in misguided attempt at carb loading.....

dizzyday07 Tue 03-Jun-14 22:47:15

DD had a tumble last night doing handstands so the rest of the evening was spent in A&E so my planned run didn't happen sad

All I had time to fit in today were 2 walks - a 2.5k around the village, and a 3k trip to the Post Office!

Hope your daughter is ok today dizzy. Half hour run for me squeezed in between work and school pickup!
