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

Almost there…

It’s just four weeks til the first HM I’m running this year. 🙂 From the tropic heat of last week (30+ C) to the mid-winter rains of this week (<5 C) it’s an interesting time to train for an event. I’ve had to dig out my thermal wear from storage! 😮 Until June 22, this … Continue reading

That’s how it went

Friend of three years: “So you’re still running?” Me: “Yup!” ~Doing the Tallinn Marathon in the autumn? ~Probably not. Don’t have much time to train this summer. ~Oh. Bummer. Was thinking about it. Wanted a running buddy. ~Oooooh! You run? ~Mhmh… started a couple of months ago. ~Mmm… In that case, I am doing a half … 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

Temptations

I’m not going for anything besides finishing with this half the day after tomorrow, so I’m tempted to try out all sorts of things I’ve read about and experiment a bit. Probably again not the brightest of ideas, but if I don’t try it… who else will figure out what works for me. Plus. I … Continue reading

Back to Business

And I wish I meant running. 😉 School’s back. Which means I’m again in a routine of out the door for work by 6.30 and back home… late. Because most days I have pilates or CoreFit after work and the days I don’t I run. I love my students and my job (the only reason … Continue reading

A Picture is Worth…

Ironically, with a post entitled like this, none of the pictures showed up. Weirdly same seems to have happened to my previous post as well. I do all my blogging from my tablet, so has that happened to anyone else? I’m going for a second attempt from the laptop now. Here goes nothing! *** I … Continue reading

Healthy Living

Or how tough that is when you’re in your final stage of 20-something-hood and try to attend at least some social events. (And I’m no good at social events without a bit of wine in me. :p) But I do try my best. Even if that “best” sometimes includes a Saturday of jello shots (yes, … 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

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
