day 3: the wet stuff forces me to the gym

It wouldn't be Janathon without plenty mentions of the weather and today was a perfect candidate. Now I know in years past there has been snow and sub-zero temperatures but that I can actually handle when running outside. Not, however, horizontal freezing rain and strong winds. Walking to the gym was traumatic enough!

So, instead, I dutifully did 5km on the x-trainer and even did some weights. I haven't been to the gym in months and found they have bought all-new and shiny weight equipment so it was nice to give it a try before all the hoards of muscle-bound, narcissistic guys return after the holidays.

About 20 mins of weights and was definitely ready to return to being snug on the couch with my book (not before I logged and blogged of course!).

Hope noone-else out there has half-drowned while doing their Janathon-ing!

distance: 5km
time: 31mins31secs
muscle-bound, narcissistic guys in the gym: a few, but not hoards


  1. I went back to the gym for the first time in ages yesterday, they didn't have any nice shiny new equipment though.

  2. The weather is truly horrid, can't get out on my bike, I hate indoor training. Well done getting something done
