The canal looks like this … (mostly wet, quite smelly)
The lake looks like this … (also considered to be wet, except in extreme droughts)
janathon = jog, log & blog daily for a month. Sounds simple. It isn’t. Still in the first week and I’ve missed one day of blogging. I’m also way behind on reading all the other janathoners’ blogs.
Here then a quick summary of days 6 & 7:
Je Suis Charlie
Day 5 of Janathon was the “back to work” day for me and for many others. It could have been an excuse for slacking, but in truth it was the thought of getting out for some exercise that kept me sane.
Jantastic started today. I’ve logged the lunchtime run & the swim, but I decided the evening run didn’t really count. My weekly target is 8 sessions. The Jantastic site has managed to calculate 2 out of 8, as 42% progress. Hopefully just teething problems.
Day 4 Janathon Activity:
Hot & Cold was the theme of the day. The run & the ride were both on the chilly side; including patches of near-freezing fog to liven things up. By contrast, the water in Tonbridge pool was way too hot, more suitable for boiling lobsters than lap swimming. Still at least there was enough space to swim lengths without having to slalom around people. All activities were completed uneventfully.
The big news of the day, for me, came between the run & the swim. We took a trip out to Kelly Holmes’ new cafe 1809 in Hildenborough for brunch. It’s not every day you get greeted by a double Olympic gold medal winning hero over breakfast! The cafe was a real pleasure. While we were there, a mix of cyclists, families & couples generated a really happy atmosphere & the serving staff were attentive & seemed to be enjoying their work. If you’re in the vicinity, I would recommend a visit.
Back to work tomorrow. The commute should be “interesting” with the disruption at London Bridge affecting all the Cannon Street trains. However, on the positive side, Jantastic starts tomorrow & I’m signed up for the Tonbridge parkrun team.
