#juneathon Day 26 #mymile | Phil Lengthorn

Tonight I gave the Strava #mymile a go. The challenge is to complete your fastest mile during the month of June.

After a one mile warm-up I went for it. To be honest I found it hard work: legs felt very heavy and breathing felt very laboured. It was either a result of Saturday night’s long run or the chicken dinner I had before the run. It wasn’t an amazingly quick mile. 7.42.

I’ll have another go before the end of the month. 

In other news….I’ve broken through 100 miles for the month! Boom! 

Total Juneathon mileage = 100.3

Saturday

Volunteering

The day started at Rutland Water Parkrun for my first ever bit of Parkrun volunteering. I’ve been meaning to do my bit for a while and today I finally managed it, I was a marshall with a camera at the 1km and 4km point. 

It was a great morning – I really enjoyed it – parkrun has such a great community feel – it was good to be involved as a non-runner.

Juneathon Day 24.

Not doing parkrun this morning meant that the run would have to fit in a bit later in the day. So after watching the F1 qualifying and putting in a bit of time up the allotment it…

#juneathon Day 20 | Phil Lengthorn

Yesterday, day 19, was another rest day. You’ve probably worked out by now that I’m taking a rather more relaxed approach to Juneathon this time round. Having said that, it was bloody scorchio yesterday, and anyone wanting to run in that heat would have been totally off their rocker. 

That’s yesterday’s excuses logged. As for today…

I extended Sunday’s run route by a mile or so tonight. It’s quite a nice little run, I’m attempting to just increase my mileage slightly. Out are the consistent daily 3-milers, to be replaced by some longer runs with some rest days thrown in. 

It was a…
