Today, I ran 17K.
Longest so far, 430m uphill, and 375m downhill, 7min/km on average.
I measured myself before and after, and I was 1.4 kg (3.1 pounds) less afterwards. Before you get happy, this is water loss... Read more
I like to shop on Friday night, it's silent, low traffic, good deals, and I start the weekend "ready".
Since I work at this fruit processing company, and I see tons of strawberry every day, strangely, I get more and more into strawberry. To... Read more
I had a short night yesterday in small inn with paper walls.
Today, a long day with lab trials, concentration non-stop.
Then a 3.5h drive back home.
I just got to my appartment.
I have no energy.
It's cold ou... Read more
Today, I used my option for the daily minimum exercise. My goal is to do minimum 10 min workout every day.
Today, I only did 10 min, and it was the easiest, walking.
I'm tired, no time, no energy for more.
But I'm happy I did my 10 min... Read more
I'm an engineer in R&D, I love high tech, and the best way to justify to buy a new gadget is when it does something healthy-lifey.
I thought to get a blood pressure monitor, so the most expensive I found on the market was the Omron MIT Elit... Read more
Today, I made some experimenting with my running. I talked to one of my colleagues who also loves to run, and got some tips she likes.
So, I started with a fast pace uphill, to loose my breath at the beginning.
I run 2 km uphill keeping m... Read more
Thursday was a bank holiday in Austria, I took Friday off, and with the weekend together, I have spent 4 days for myself. To have a rest, catch up with friends in e-mail, watch movies, sleep, walk around, run, and relax.
I travelled so much... Read more
My daily exercise was 7K running.
I went to run at night, somehow it happened late.
I like to run at night.
It's so calm, silent, and now the warm summer night is something I truly enjoy.
It feels like the exercise cleans my body, and f... Read more
Day of rest.
I see my body needs it.
However, I am switched.
I prefer those days, when I can run, or do some other intensive exercise. These resting days feel like I miss something.
I feel this urge in my body to move, to go, to explore,... Read more
I remember how was it on 26th April, when I first went out to run.
3K, and I was quite exhausted, and really had to force my body to move forward.
Yesterday I ran 9K, and today I only did 4K, a distance which feels very-very short now.... Read more

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
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
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.

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

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
