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

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

The Cross-Training Conundrum

Once upon a time I disliked exercise. You could say I even hated it. You couldn’t catch me sweating voluntarily anywhere outside a sauna. That all changed when I started running. For the first time in a month, I’ve done runs on all my regular running days. 🙂 I did 7k on Tuesday, 8k on … Continue reading

There’s Plans and There’s Life

Hiya. 🙂 Good news: I’m back home after seven days of conference in Helsinki. We had heat waves, thunderstorms, insane amounts of delicious food, an even insaner schedule of events, but mostly we had fun. After being abandoned by a friend who fell ill on the first day, I was also the only Estonian there, … Continue reading

The Off Month

Let’s get real here. I haven’t done any real running for a month. At a time where I should be doing 50+km a week with long runs of 30km… I’m barely doing 20km with my longest run over a month ago and that was just 24km. It’s five weeks til the marathon I’ve registered for. … Continue reading

The Weekly Recap

So, I quite suddenly started running again on Tuesday and I’ve been trying to get in a run on my regular days since. That’s Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. 🙂 I think I might have started too early seeing as how I’m sitting with an ice back on my knees right now. Argh! Can I … Continue reading

The Heart’s Still In It (Even if the Knees Ain’t)

I did something unplanned today. 🙂 I ran. I honestly had no intention. My knees are better, but still a bit sore so I had planned to wait a bit more. It’s been two weeks since my last good run and ten days since any attempt at running. For these two weeks I’ve been consumed … Continue reading

Would you like a little cheese with that whine? (Or – Addicting Foods)

I came to a realisation today. (Unfortunately.) I like food. I like cooking. You’d actually be hard pressed to find foodstuff I’m not a fan of (maybe just olives… which I don’t dislike, just never buy myself. Oh, and any kind of celery, hate it with a passion.) But other than that… I’m good. Now, … Continue reading

Staying Active and Eating Well

I had this daydream that the next time I blogged the knee pain would have already magically disappeared. (Sometimes aches and pains do that, right?) Unfortunately, that’s not the case. 😦 The good news – it’s not worse. The bad news – pretty much feels exactly the same. For those of you asking, it’s located … Continue reading
