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

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

The Running Accident

So. I’ve been following the ease into 10k running plan since late December. I did weeks 2 and 5 twice (due to a bit of a cold) and this means I’m officially in week 9 out of ten now. So far, it’s been the same run three times a week, getting tougher every week. Last … 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

Your Legs, Your Transportation

I’ve been battling first weeks at work, a week of birthday celebrations and now a week of kitchen sink troubles. When I fell asleep on Friday night I slept for 12 hours straight. Sounds decadent? I should mention I woke up just after eight on Saturday. Yup. I’m now the girl who falls asleep at … 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

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
