Day 15 RED January

24min home yoga session via the ‘daily yoga’ app.

My first experience of a bit of yoga. I found it quite hard work. It’s very difficult trying to stay relaxed when she is telling you to: engage your thighs, keep your back straight, push into your heals, pull in your abs, retain your balance, and other equally impossible things.

Having said all that, I can see why yoga is popular. I think once you know the poses and can do them correctly, then you can focus more on breathing and relaxing, and it probably becomes more enjoyable. I like the whole calmness of it.

I’m not about to become a yoga guru, but I think I can manage at least one yoga session a week.

When doing a Parkrun on a Saturday morning, you generally have just one thing to remember: don’t forget your barcode.

I forgot it.

Day 9 RED January

It was a chilly evening – I was wrapped up well for a few quick miles on the streets of Bourne.

Day 7 RED January

After not running at all in December (and barely in November) because of the niggle in the calf, this RED January is a godsend. It means I can very slowly increase distance and speed.

So today I was at the gym – 4 miles on the treadmill – slowly increasing the speed of each mile.

I’m hoping that by the end of January I might be somewhere need where I was about 3 months ago so that I can start building up the mileage and getting back to some faster parkruns.

RED January stats:

  • 1 parkrun
  • 1 gym session
  • 2 bike rides
  • 2 runs
  • 1 walk
