days 26&27- my first fail

Yesterday was my first day where I had a Janathon fail. I left for work at 6:30am - I had an event in Perth to get to. I was on my feet filming all day and didn't get a lunch break so couldn't even get a cheeky mile in. The day event finished at 4:30pm and everyone went off for free time and to check into the hotel...I on the other hand had a 5min video to edit from all the footage of the day (lots of water industry guys doing team building activities) in an hour and a half in order to show it before everyone had dinner. Thankfully everything went to plan and got everything done...I celebrated going straight to the bar to get a pint of well deserved beer. Then it was dinner and more drinking and not surprisingly no running or exercise of any kind, unless you count wandering around Perth with video equipment and a laptop. I fell into bed around about 3am.  I got up today rather hungover. I felt marginally better later in the afternoon so went out for a lap of Holyrood Park...I must have looked a bit tired as a lovely smiley lady gave me some encouragement as she came past me on her way down the big hill I was struggling up.

Thankfully it was a beautiful day and the sun was shining and didn't actually do too badly time-wise. And now I'm off for round too for dinner and drinks for my friend's birthday party...may be another hungover jog tomorrow!

distance: 3.5miles
time: 33mins
cals: 410
whiskys, pints of Guinness drunk last night: too many


  1. If you ask me, wandering around Perth with video equipment and a laptop counts! Well done on today's jog! :)

  2. I agree with Natalie - there is weight lifting and walking involved there!
