21-Jan-13 The run is broken!

In Blog, charity, Personal, Sports on January 21, 2013 at 9:20 pm

Unfortunately my run of runs came to an end today much to my frustration and disappointment. During January, I’ve run in snow, rain, hot and cold conditions, but I had to give up this evening due to ice!

After much deliberation after a very careful walk home from the station, I realised that it was just plain stupid to go out, so tonight I had to find an alternative to make up for letting down my colleagues who are doing this for charity.

The answer. After searching on the Internet, I discovered that the amount of calories burned in doing 3 miles was the same as 90 minutes on Just Dance on the Wii (oh no)!

So about 35 minutes later and I feel like I have run 10 miles! Was that really reliable that information I found on Google!

For evidence, here I am about to do Gangnam Style, a popular choice at the moment!

Fingers crossed for a warm day tomorrow!

My stats according to MapMyRun:
Day 21 – 0 miles / 35 minutes on Just Dance!
Janathon to date – 61.86miles
Days running in dry conditions – 16/20 – 1 on Just Dance!

I am keeping everything crossed that the ice will thaw a touch tomorrow and we can get out, as I now have a tough job of completing the 38 miles I need to compete in 10 days!

Me and a number of my colleagues at SThree are doing Janathon for orphaned children through SOS Children’s Villages. Our goal is to try and raise £1,000 through our own and others donations.

  1. With modern technology am thinking a video of yourself doing the Gangnam Style will increase the money raised for your charity……… 😊

  2. I had to do the same. I did some walking and some Kinnect. I will be able to run again from tomorrow as will be back in the lunch time regime at GPS, but when I’m not in that office I don’t have the shower option and it is thick ice in Loughton now so no chance of running there for a few days at least!

    You certainly haven’t let anyone down by the way!
