Basically, the Janathon is a commitment to run or do something every day in January and so far the second week of the Janathon is going better than the first.
Although Day 8 (Sunday) was a bust because I didn’t do much of anything except “recover” from my long and horrible head cold I caught. I had hoped to do some Wii Fit and yoga, but my bed won that battle.
Speaking of the Wii Fit, I was not happy what the Wii Fit trainer did to my Mii!
Just look at the junk in my trunk! Obviously, my Mii needs to stop throwing back the beers is in desperate need of some Pilates! Apparently, the Wii has no appreciation for juiceful butts.
Actually, the Wii Fit does not account for muscle. At least that’s what I’m telling convincing myself and it’s nothing a few hula hoops sessions can’t fix. My Mii is still smiling, though. So it can’t be all that bad.
Thankfully, the weather has been more like a typical Florida winter and I’m loving it because it gets me outside running instead of staring at my big-bottomed Mii.
For Day 9 of the Janathon, I ran 3.1 miles. I was a second faster than last Monday. Hey, one second is one second and I’ll take it!

Today was my sprint day. Yay. I’m not sure if the sarcasm in my tone is evident, but I really hate sprint work. No, really sprints suck and they hurt, but it’s a necessary work-out to get faster. So, I suck it up and do sprints and for the most part, I feel really good afterwards.
Today I started with a 1 mile warm-up followed by a 6×400 attempt with a 1 mile cool down. For someone who hates sprints, I think I did all right.

Now, I just to add some hills to my training. Yay.
I forgot to mention that I am having four wisdom teeth extracted on Thursday morning (yay) which means I’ll miss a few training days and Janathon days while I heal. Here’s hoping the soft food diet I will be forced to endure will help thin Mii down.
