Well, that was a workout…

I went to see a live cinema coverage of Monty Python with my sister yesterday. It was the first time since the accident I’ve gone out without a wheelchair and just with crutches. The plan was to get on a car, drive there, get out, hobble to our seats, get a taxi back. Seemed easy … Continue reading

Travelling on Wheels

It’s been a doozy. On June 22, I ran my first (and last) HM this year. Compared to the year before, it was a whole ‘nother thing. In 2013, I’d ran a strict training plan beforehand and ran the half marathon in nearly 30C of sunshine-y heat all geared up with gels and electrolyte water … Continue reading

3 Days Jitters

For whatever reason I thought it would be a nice idea to help out my dad last weekend. I still had a week to go to the half, and he’d asked for help with garden work on Saturday. I figured, do a bit of manual labor on Saturday, run an easy 10k on Sunday, then … Continue reading

It’s not running without shoes and taping

Really, it’s not. 🙂 Instead of the well-deserved rest after the Saturday race last weekend, I decided to go on a 12k slow and easy in the blistering heat the next day. Well, I can say that it took me no effort at all to keep to a 7 min/km LSD pace then. 😛 It … Continue reading

The Secret Life of Me

I was all set to do a post of my triumphant return run (40 minutes of nonstop running after a two week break) or about the gorgeous spring sunshine that makes me smile (complete with pictures) or the fact that getting a wisdom tooth pulled turned out to be not a big deal of any … Continue reading

Wood and Foods

Thursday I had the coolest running surprise in ages. So there’s this small artificial lake with surrounding park and playgrounds a five minute jog from my house. I’ve always loved it. Pretty sure it’s popped up here before as well. It’s great atmosphere with strolling families, rollebladers and runners. The loop around the lake is … Continue reading

Cat-ching Up

Here’s the thing. I got lazy. Like really lazy. Somewhere in autumn I went through trying to run again. And then PÖFF happened. That’s the Black Nights Movie Festival. Somewhere along the way I managed to score a invitee festival pass that let me take out free tickets/invitations to all the movies at the festival. … Continue reading

Long Time a’Comin’

I went for a run yesterday. 3.5km in pitch black where the adrenaline rush came in equal parts from running in no-light urban areas and wondering when exactly I’d stumble and fall flat on my face courtesy of cracks in the pavement. It was horrid. Not because of the dark, but because the 3k already … Continue reading

Race Recap

How awesome to this again! 🙂 I’m afraid I’ll be cruising on endorphins for the rest of the evening so bear with me. Today I ran my second ever half marathon. I ran it pretty much unprepared. (Not wise, but you know…) Since I had done very little running in the past two months – … Continue reading
