Janathon Day 3

Volunteering today @wimpoleparkrun a good way to start 2015 #givingback #janathon

An easy day today, a spot of volunteering at Wimpole Estate parkrun & day 2 of my 30 day challenges.  I managed to get an steady 2.5km jog in whilst setting up my arrows & cones at my volunteer post.  This included a 400m sprint from one point to another on the course to cheer people on before they got to the hill & to allow me to collect the signage once the tail runner came through. I did have a minor panic getting set-up when I couldn’t unlock the padlock on the gate….a quick call to the run director & I discovered that whilst the padlock was locked it wasn’t actually locking the gate! One more check to add to the checklist for future volunteering efforts I think! It was great to see so many people braving the cold, drizzly weather & mud on the first Saturday parkrun of the year.

2 naps throughout the day (rest & recovery is important too you know!) and I have just done 50 squats, 16 press-ups, 20 second plank and 20 second wall sit.  I’m almost at 10,000 steps for the day too.

Overall a fairly successful Saturday.

  1. While you were doing that I was with people in Switzerland and we were in the rain playing ingress (augmented reality game with mobile phones). Sometimes geeks will do strange things for entertainment.
