I decided after last year's injury-plagued marathon attempt that my body can't handle more than three days of running per week anymore and, while it's easy(ish) enough for me to stay motivated to do those days, my natural laziness gets in the way of doing anything else. My recent foray into adding a gym component to my training has been going okay, but I can foresee the day (and it'll be sooner rather than later) when I happily revert back to do-the-bare-minimum.
Hence the Janathon. I'm not able to say to myself, 'I'm going to exercise more,' and then do it. No, I need to tart it up with faffery. I've filled out a registration form, acquired a logo, joined a Facebook page, made some posts on said Facebook page, and am now making a formal announcement to the world at large about my intentions. Having done all of this, maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to stick with it.
|Yum yum, in my tum!|
So here's my Janathon plan:
Monday: Gym (upper body)
Tuesday: Gym (cardio cross-train, to take the place of a run)
Thursday: Gym (lower body)
Saturday: Random activity depending on my mood (but not involving eating)
Sunday: Long run
Impressed? Don't be. If I were really serious about all of this, I'd be entering a NoMoreCake-athon.
