All Your Eats Are Belong to Us

Today was that day. That day when you don’t feel like running at all. It’s not even that your legs are hurting or… anything that makes sense really. For me it was a super busy long day at work. I’d had a short night sleep, I’m stressed about finding a new flatmate, all I’d managed … Continue reading

What I Eat Take 2 + Snack Bars of the Week

As I was doing my weekend shopping yesterday, I figured I’d snap some pictures again. It’s kind of fun to keep track of what I’m the mood for depending on weeks… ^_^ This is a testament to one of my unhealthiest habits. I’m an apple junkie. An apple a day might keep the doctor away, … Continue reading

Week Seven Recap and a Cadence Update

So, there’s this old Russian cartoon that I’m sure every kid growing up in Estonia in the 80s knows. The little hedgehog lost in fog. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is what running today felt like. A bit of a contrast from yesterday, wouldn’t you say? Just goes to prove I should have waited for late afternoon again … Continue reading

The Apps

So. I’m an Endomondo girl. ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually, as I first started running using the c25k programme, I used a c25k app for that. And then the Bridge to Ten K programme from the same app. I was basically doomed from the start to be an application junkie. Mostly because I’m such a gadget (and by … Continue reading

The Cadence Game

Hey, runners! Hands up who’s never googled “injury prevention” or “best running techniques” or something of the sort. I’d say odds are you have. ๐Ÿ˜€ I know I do it pretty often. Especially when something starts to get sore or nagging me a bit too much. In fact, even though I’m so not a team … Continue reading

Cold Vs Wet

If given the choice between icy cold blue skies and less freezing rain… I infinitely prefer the rain. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wet is nothing but fun.

Come and Get Me, Week 7! Oh, and Snacks.

I’m feeling the fighting sprit! Really. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s the thing. I spent five hours in the emergency room yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Nope. I’m not injured. But as pre-Diabetic I’m pretty conscious of things I should look out for, so yesterday after work I called up my GP, found out that she’s on vacation and told me … Continue reading

Injuries, Dinners, Spring and Week 6 Recap

Phew, so that’s a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€ After my run yesterday, my left thigh and knee area felt sore. But this morning they were pretty ok. So, again following the 75% rule, I decided to for an easy and comfortable 3.5km run instead of the 5km The Plan called for. I’m still testing the new shoes, … Continue reading

What I Eat

Ever wanted to peak into someone’s pantry? Here’s your chance. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, I consider myself a relatively healthy eater. Or an aware eater at least. Mostly because I cook all my meals myself. When I went shopping for the week, I decided to see if this is actually true. I live with a cat and … Continue reading

Comeback Shoesday

That is, can you really call it a comeback after just a five day break? My thigh stopped hurting by Thursday. And during my massage, my therapist remarked that there still was a bit more stiffness to the muscle than she would have liked…but if I took it easy on Friday and felt painfree come … Continue reading
