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

The Home Stretch

If there are any other teachers among my readers, you can attest to how insane the last weeks of school are. It seems that every year, students realise that school’s about to end for the year when there’s about two weeks to go, and every year they get really worried about their grades and extra credit assignments … 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

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

Season Kick-off!

Well. Five weeks to my half marathon and today I ran the first official race of 2014 in my calendar. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything close to my last year’s 38 minutes. I’ve literally been swamped with work and family obligations to the point of where I’ve hardly had time to sleep. I’ve … 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

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

In the Groove

Oh, yes, I am. 🙂 After a two-hours of sleep kinda night, lots of work kinda day, lots of coffee… When crawling into bed with a good book and the latest episode of Bones seems the best idea… And you still go for a run. And enjoy it. And the sunset. And after 8k finish … Continue reading
