On the 11th day of Janathon - lovely sunset

After yesterday's exercise overload my right calf muscle is now a little sore - better keep quiet because the miseries at work will tell me to give up again!

Thankfully an uneventful day.   The usual dog walk this afternoon - except we went a bit further as it's not getting dark so early.    We managed 8k in 2 hours.  Archie wasn't really up for ball games today so it's been mostly straight walking and waiting for the sniffer to stop working!   I was amazed by the long shadows today - wish my legs were that long and thin!

The sunset was way better than it came out - bright orange ball!

Did 40 minutes on the Wii Active (god that thing is becoming addictive!) loads of squat reps including calf raises and a squat and hold for what seemed a life time.   Quite enjoy the cardio boxing but tonight it added in some basket ball and volley ball moves.  I'm not the most co-ordinated person in the world and I just couldn't get the moves right - hopefully I can sort that out with some practice.   Did a couple of minutes running on the spot.   Glad I didn't go for a proper run, the calf muscle is quite sore so it's probably good I've rested it today.

  1. I like the sound of all your exercises on the Wii. The kids have got one, but I haven’t investigated the games for it much. The real life walk on the beach looked far more fortifying though! Keep up the good work X
