Juneathon Day 29

juneathon_participant_logoAs today is a Monday I really should be doing Pilates for day 29 Juneathon. In fact at the beginning of the month I had pledged to attend every single Pilates class in June.

End of November

End of November

  I’ve not done a weekly roundup since finishing my Trailffest training. To be honest I’ve not been that regular with my runs or workouts since the start of October. I’ve still managed at least two runs a week but these have been shorter ones with the Start to Run course and my lunchtime running…
