So, how am I actually going to do the Janathon?

I am starting to wonder if I should think of a strategy or some kind of plan to make sure that I can run every day in January. The closer January 1st gets, the more I am starting to wonder how on earth I am going to do this.

I am hoping to kick things off with the Cambridge parkrun on January 1st (I have never run with a hangover before). Although I have done the parkrun several times before I am expecting to do this in a really slow time which I can then hopefully improve on throughout the year.

I haven’t been out for a run since the end of November as I started to have problems with my knee and I got a cold (I have a big list of excuses!) so my total running miles in December is a big fat zero.  This probably means that I am going to find the Janathon a bit of a struggle – but there are only 31 days in January – how hard can it be?

    I know how you feel. I’ve never run more than 3 days in a row before. I’ve to try to run as much as possible but on some days to just add extra exercise into my day in another way – maybe even just doing a few sit ups (the easy girly ones) before I go to bed. Good luck!

    If you are planning to run each day throughout Janathon, I would offer 1 tip: keep the runs short. A few kms each day will keep you ticking over without injury. Every so often, you can go for a longer run if you feel like it but pace yourself. From my experience, the first 10 days are fine and then the aches, pains and frustrations all start kicking in. Try to stick with it… and good luck. I am not going to take part this time as I have a couple of Half Marathons on the cards but will be willing all the participants on and reading the blogs.

    Good luck with Janathon – you are lucky to have Cambridge park run nearby to help kick you off
