Juneathon Day 5 – Where I try to pass off incidental activity as exercise

14 Comments

I finish work at 3pm on Fridays and today I arranged to catch up with my friend who also has Fridays free. We walked to a nearby cafe and I had tea and a massive scone with jam and clotted cream. We then wandered around the local streets in the sunshine before heading back to my place. 

I did consider going for a short, easy run once I got home but I have a couple of niggles and have been tired this week so decided that I could pass off a 1.5 mile walk as exercise even if my heart rate barely got above resting and was divided (the walk, not my heart rate) by an hour and a half sitting on my butt, in a cafe, eating the scone.

I also stood on one foot while standing on a cushion as a token nod to my physio exercises.

  1. WOW. My heart rate double just getting off the couch… and TRIPLES when eating clotted cream scones (… what, no jam.. savage!)

  2. I think sometimes you just have to count it! And also eating sconey goodness whilst catching up is an exercise in and of itself! A good catch up if done right can be exhausting!!

  3. Love the token nod, that’s more than I do with those mandatory exercises…why do they feel so hard to do I wonder.

  4. Oh I bloody love that! I also had a scone yesterday but sadly no cream was on offer. If I had hadn’t been doing Juneathon I wouldn’t have done anything at all

  5. Sometimes I think it is just important to see friends and relax and enjoy a scone.

  6. I don’t know what clotted cream is!! I’m feeling really sad because it sounds delightful.

  7. Standing on one foot while standing on a cushion sounds challenging – have just tried it and fell over!
