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

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

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

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

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

First One Down! (The Race Report)

Let us start with: You do not want a post-op cat recovering in your bed the night before race time. Lesson learned. 🙂 I’d been busy eating more carbs the past two days than I usually, so instead of my weekend breakfast of protein pancake I started my race day with a late breakfast of … Continue reading

Load Up!

So, why didn’t anybody warn me carb loading was so difficult?! I read and read and read and then calculated that I need to consume about 500g in carbs both today and yesterday. Did my very best and managed 300 yesterday (I usually consume around 170) and followed my eating plan for today and I … Continue reading
