Umbrella before - a week on training
Tomorrow, I start a week of training (organisaitonal development, in my free time) here in Budapest. We have a package in the hotel with rooms and food all inclusive. It means "dining out" 3x a day, 7 days the week.

Swim-run break during my long train trip
On Friday yesterday, I had a long train trip from Gleisdorf, Austria to Budapest, Hungary (3h+3h). I was wondering when and where could I swim and run.
Then, I decided to stop on half way in Szombathely, near the border in Hungary, after 3h... Read more
New day, new pool (Spa zur Sonne Graz)
Today, I had again an unplanned meeting outside, and as I had may swimming gear in my bag (who knows when a pool comes along), on the way back, I could handle the situation when suddenly a pool was blocking my way.

Swim, run; happy face!
After my meeting today, I was able to make a quick visit to a nearby swimming pool on the way home. I just looked it up with my GPS application - POI \ Facilities \ Sports and there we go. I had no clue what type of pool is that, I just thought ... Read more
Today the pool was closed again. It seems like they just grab every little opportunity to close. If there is a little cloudy on the sky, they close.
So, I couldn't swim today. This is difficult, first, it breaks my excellent exercise routin... Read more
In the loss range again
I have notice during my sparkjourney, that weight loss happens for me usually in a well defined eaten-burned range of calories.
If I eat less, or burn more then necessary, I don't loose weight. And it takes quite some time to find the right... Read more
Compacting exercise time - how you do it?
Today, I was experimenting on how to optimize time around my exercise.
This is because 10K run is about 1 hour depending on my speed (few minutes less or more); plus stretching 5 min before, 5 after; and about 15 min walk afterwards to cool... Read more

Photo of "My" swimming pool
So now my daily exercise schedule is swimming from around 18:50 to 19:30, then take on my running gear right ahead and run 10K. It feels great, and I don't feel much tired when back at home. This is strange.
Last week the pool was full of p... Read more

Just a coin for the locker
I was planning the whole day that after work I get out and head directly to the swimming pool. It was already 7pm, but I discovered the entry is free after 7, and I can swim until 8pm. This is great, as during the day I think the whole area is t... Read more
Chateau de Chenonceaux
35 minutes swimming in the local open air swimming pool.
It was a challenge, I think I was the only person until now not staying in the evenings at the "Wellenbad". It was like a swimming Marathon in all the pools, but people instead ... Read more

I wrote this last Monday (15th Aug 2011), but it didn't go trough. Unfortunately Orange France's mobile internet was picky about websites, it just couldn't reach sparkpeople.com. So here it is now.
Bonjour les amis!
