One of the biggest challenges for Juneathon is getting Hector dressed and out of the door. He is going through a running-away-and-not-wanting-to-wear-any-clothes stage, which means lots of running up and down the hall with him screaming with laughter and me pulling my hair out! We got there in the end though…
Today’s run was a ‘water-digger’ run along the canal. It’s absolutely scorchio out there today, I love it! On our way to the canal we paused at Tottenham Hale to watch the cranes, diggers and dumpers and this digger actually swerved round and ‘waved’ its scooper at us! It was rather special.
Unfortunately there were no water diggers along the stretch of canal we ran, I think they must have moved further down, this calls for a longer run then. So we headed to the playground and enjoyed some climbing, see-sawing, sliding and round-abouting (does all this count in Juneathon?). During our playground stop my Garmin packed up – I’d let the battery run down – so my stats are approximate. I just doubled what I did in the first half, as that’s what I would have run anyway. It’s charging up right now.
Now to the other bit of my Juneathoning. Sit-ups, let’s see…55! And 15 press-ups 🙂 This morning I said to Edward ‘How many sit-ups can you do in one go?’ he looked horrified and said, in a high-pitched voice, ‘What are you doing?!’ I don’t think he’ll be joining me in this particular challenge.
