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

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

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 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

Would you like a little cheese with that whine? (Or – Addicting Foods)

I came to a realisation today. (Unfortunately.) I like food. I like cooking. You’d actually be hard pressed to find foodstuff I’m not a fan of (maybe just olives… which I don’t dislike, just never buy myself. Oh, and any kind of celery, hate it with a passion.) But other than that… I’m good. Now, … Continue reading

Up and Down and Tough Decisions

I really haven’t felt up to blogging since last Tuesday and my last good run. I know that stuff happens, but running for me is a happy making activity, and when I’m not running… I’m not happy. (That simple.) And I’m not running. 😦 I also have no idea at this moment when I’ll be … Continue reading

Cumulative Fatigue

Or something. I’m starting to think that just pushing on with my training plan straight after the HM last week wasn’t such a good idea. Just because I don’t feel like my legs are tired doesn’t mean they actually aren’t. Which is why I’m sitting in bed on a Saturday evening with ice packs wrapped … 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

Chicken Soup for the Common Cold

Because that’s what I seem to have. 😦 Four days to go an I have the whole package – sore throat, runny nose and a fever. (Let me tell you, I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself now.) I’m doing everything I know to get better as soon as possible from numerous pots of freshly … Continue reading

Overindulged on Every Front

Yikes. It’s cutback week. Less mileage, less everything. (Except food and drink, it seems.) But cutback week feels excellent right now. It seems forever since the last time I temporarily reduced mileage because it actually was in my training plan and not because of a minor injury. *drumroll* I am currently running tape free, insole … Continue reading
