A day off!

Raw juice in the pic above: 3 small pears, 1 red apple, 150 gram blueberries and some cinnamon sprinkled on top! It is a public holiday in Germany today celebrating the reunification of Germany, as such everything is closed so instead of heading to the gym I have had a full day of studying. Admittedly, this resting…

To listen to my body.

I caught a virus last weekend and have been trying to take it easy and relax allowing my immune system a fair chance to deal with the situation. I have tried my best to rest up properly even though all I want to do is be active. It is the toughest lesson to learn when…

Tuesday is here and I am in love with the gym.

Tuesday already, I have had a grand start to the week though. Yesterdays gym session went swimmingly and I managed to add weights to some of my sets. It is a huge win when that can happen and I still can sustain a controlled movement and work the correct muscle group(s). I love to lift…

My training buddy.

Last Christmas I was gifted a fitbit from my brother in law and his girlfriend and it has been a true companion ever since. At first I didn’t think I was going to take to it at all as I have always been true to Garmin and fully appreciate the information it provides me with…

Running and the benefits of being outdoors.

Sunday, and its all blue skies outside couldn’t be nicer weather to be honest. Of course still winter and cold (-10 this morning) but I cannot wait till I will be out running in a couple of hours. Till then I am trying my best to finish a psychology assignment involving SPSS and Anova. I…

Wednesday and a favourite breakfast!

This morning was somewhat magical, woke up fully rested and I love how the sunlight bounce against the white snow making it even brighter! Since I am a light fanatic, that is one of the best attributes of winter in my opinion. Anyway, started my morning with a favourite breakfast containing a lovely avocado (big health booster…

The current situation.

I have braced myself several times these past weeks and headed out for a run despite roads being covered by snow and ice. Today though, I called it quits when it comes to outdoor running for a while. Not because it is impossible, mainly because I really don’t want to injure myself somehow. So, until the roads…

The fear of running during dark autumn evenings.

Currently preparing for my evening run, warming up cold and tired ligaments, tendons and body. Not to mention my mind, it is rather mushy after a whole day in front of the computer stuffing my head with numerous theories and methods. The upcoming examination next year is haunting me day and night despite the fact…

Back to nordic walking.

Started this morning with some nordic walking in the nearby areas, it is a really nice way to wake up mind and body before breakfast. Ideally I would have loved to go for a proper hike in the national park but since it is gym day today it had to be a shorter walk instead. Went…

Saturday evening, study books and running plans!

Spending my Saturday evening in front of the computer, creating various mind maps with the fantastic ‘Simple mind‘ app. If you are a student and do not use it already, go and download it pronto! You will not be disappointed, it is that good! This study year is rather packed with information and I spend most…

Autumn is here and I am…well, tired.

We returned back home from our engagement trip to Greece the other week and since then I have truly struggled to get myself back into my former training routine. Not due to a holiday blues or anything along those lines, instead I think it has to do with autumn all of a sudden being here and all…

Sunday Confession | To push yourself or not.

This has been one crazy week, training wise I have been fine – better than fine actually as I had my best run to date on Thursday. Legs were in perfect symbiosis with the heart and lungs and I felt as if I could have gone on forever, and I almost did. Until I remembered that I…
