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

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

Don’t Stop Me Now!

😀 I suck at resting. I really really do. I get restless,  I get bored and, most of all, I dislike being cooped up all day. After two days of fever, I found myself with just a sore throat and runny nose yesterday. And it was a beautiful day. Just beautiful. 🙂 So, as I … Continue reading

Fumble, Stumble and Fall

Or tumble down a hill, as the case may be. It’s taper week. And I’m finding it tough. It’s weird. But my half marathon is next Saturday and I’m determined to do everything I can to have a great experience. 🙂 For my taper, I’m trying to decrease the frequency, intensity and mileage of my … Continue reading
