One of the key learning about myself on the training of the last three days is that I'm persistent.
Maybe this is why running works for me?
Or healthy lifestyle in general.
I see myself only doing small things, just ... Read more
Tonight I practiced the "Best place for exercise - anywhere" habit I learned recently. A friend of mine was about driving me home, but I decided to walk home instead. It was 50 min walk, which was very nice, and was a good fit in my daily dose ... Read more
I ran today with a very good friend, who also run a marathon recently. We ran on the track around the Margit-Island in Budapest (Hungary). We ran without music, as he thinks it's easier to keep his own pace, and not to take the pace from the mus... Read more

Today, hot day, traveling, lots of snacks. Although, I ate a lot of vegetables and fruits as the snacks, the sum passed over the calorie range. So, even with fruits, it is easy to go off limits.
I shouldn't have eaten th... Read more

AN ACTIVE TUESDAY
Today I worked 12h, as yesterday was a day off, and last week I was on the conference, there was a lot to do.
Then back at home, I ran a 10K distance.
Once I've read in a survey that managers wer... Read more

My exercise today was minimum, only a 2km - 25 min walk.
I notice that when I do a long run of 7-10K, somehow the next day running doesn't happen.
I was catching up with all my trackers and logs today, which gives ... Read more

Today, I slept 8h at night, and another 1h30 in the afternoon on the train. It's funny there is a direct train connection between Budapest and Gleisdorf, only 4h40min. I love traveling by train. Hopefully my Ghrelin levels wi... Read more
Last week was quite difficult with all the travel and eating out that goes with it.
I think I will have to develop a system I can track more easily online when I am on the go, because I see a clear correlation between the on-the-day tracking a... Read more
I only managed to sleep for 7h 11min, as they started to clean up in the hotel and I woke up. However, this afternoon I visited my sister (I stay at her now for the weekend), and I added a 1h 30min powernap.
This evening I went to ran to La... Read more

I think writing these short blogs are more important for myself than I thought. It's not just a blog, but a quick reflection on how I managed the day on my healthy life path, reviewing what I did or didn't do.

So, we've met at 6am as planned (huh, way too early), and we were two in the end.
We started to run directly to the Margarit Island (3300 m), then went a full circle on the running track around the island (5300 m), and a bit more, and took tra... Read more
I lost track of how many yogurt, ice cream, cheese and other fruit based dairy products I have tasted on this conference today. Maybe 1200 kcal, or 1500 kcal? All I know that I probably underestimated.
But, somehow it's so much fun to taste pr... Read more
So here I am in Budapest.
My home town.
I grew up here, and lived here until I was 26. It's hard to see it was 8 years ago, because it feels like yesterday.
A week of conference for my job, so now I sleep in a hotel, instead crashing at my... Read more
So, today was my first day off running since I run.
Thanks for the encouragement - now I made some research, and it looks like the No1 injury cause is over-training. Therefore, today I was officially injury preventing.

I decided to run 7K today, and take a day off from running tomorrow, based on those many articles and feedback asking me to rest.
It's hard to start, but it's also hard to stop.
Maybe a light bicycle ride, or walking will be the 10 min exerc... Read more
