Spinning myself up to get out for exercise after a long working day with zero energy back at home
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      3 comments

Wed, Jun 22, 2011, 19:53 This was again such a busy day at work. And just before going home, we had an ad hoc very important meeting for one of my projects. Back at home then, I just realize I was concentrating all day long, and I am s... Read more
The new scale discrepancy phenomenon
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      5 comments

I've slept only 6h tonight, and I was a bit tired all day. I was energized after the run yesterday, but still, the shortage on sleep was not good. I think the next step, after the spring challenge and reaching my target goal, will be to imp... Read more
Running: new record in distance
Monday, June 20, 2011      4 comments

Today, I have started to run only 7K, but somehow I was in a good mood and good energy level, and I ran 14K. It didn't feel difficult at all, but on the last few kms I paid attention to step softly on my knees. http://www.endomondo.com... Read more
Heart rate 150-160 bpm - 5K
Sunday, June 19, 2011      5 comments

It's still funny for me that I had been a tourist in Budapest from Thursday to Sunday, and now I arrived home to Gleisdorf. It used to be the other way around. :-) In the morning, I made a big walk in Budapest with my friends. This is the s... Read more
I'm persistent (Spring 5%, W7 D1)
Saturday, June 18, 2011      5 comments

(Sat 18 Jun 2011) 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
Best place for exercise
Friday, June 17, 2011      3 comments

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
Running in company
Thursday, June 16, 2011      4 comments

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
Two much fruits is still too much
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      6 comments

(Wed 15 Jun 2011) 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
Shaping the dining out menu (and my 2nd 10K)

(Tue 14 Jun 2011) 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
Tracking is king
Monday, June 13, 2011      6 comments

(Mon 13 June 2011) 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
Enjoying the good sleeps
Sunday, June 12, 2011      7 comments

(Sun 12 Jun 2011) 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
I need sleep (Spring 5%, W6 D1)
Saturday, June 11, 2011      8 comments

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
8h40min sleep + 10K
Friday, June 10, 2011      7 comments

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
Zero energy

(09 Jun 2011, 01:00 am) 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. E... Read more
Get up and run
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      8 comments

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
