Body, Mind, & Goal

Yesterday someone sent me a mail asking if I remember them.  The smart thing to do would be to just ignore it and pretend like I never received the email.  I’ve never been good at taking my own advice.

This morning I woke up feeling really grumpy and unappreciated.  I got up, ate some müesli, and then went back to bed.  I woke up again to breakfast in bed and the kids watching tv quietly in the other room. 

After almost 13 years together I still secretly wish there was more spontaneous romance in our relationship, but after almost 13 years I still have to remind myself that the little things still mean something. 

A “beat the wind and rain” run here on the island.  Have a good Sunday :). #running #marathontraining #onøy  (at Onøy Fergekai)

Today’s 5k was good.

I just got home and boy does it feel good.  I kind of have to laugh because it’s true.  What’s the first thing we all do?  We run to tumblr still sweaty and then stay glued to our feed. 

I didn’t have time for anything else other than a quick run because of time (and the fact that worked called!) and the fact that Monday’s are ironically way too long.  (It’s funny how that works, eh?) A full day of work, the kids, and then a dash to the gym… ahhhh.  Endorphins…. yesssss.

Now it’s time to pack some lunches and then get myself to bed.

Today’s run with warm-up, rests, and cool-down: 5km - 31:15.  Not bad.  Not as impressive as last season but I still have time to improve. 

Halfway decent 5k run/jog with warmup/resting/cool down.  A little more work to get into the next leg.  #marathontraining #marathonhereicome #oslomaraton2014 (at Tones Trim)

I don’t even want to look at the date of my last post.  This isn’t an update about guilt or failure, but rather an update about my own health.

A couple of months ago I was on sick leave.  Stress, a family crisis, a serious infection, and then an even more serious reproductive/ovarian situation completely suffocated any chance at pulling through.  I just completely pulled out of the game for a good 4 months.  I had no motivation to go out, I didn’t want to be seen, and my appetite and attitude towards food was disgusting.  I could skip meals, binge on junk, or just survive on dangerous amounts of coffee.  I felt like I had no choice and no control.  But now I’m here and I want to start again. 

Earlier this month I purchased a monthly pass at our local “trimsenter”.  It’s not exactly a gym, but it’s definitely got enough to suffice this little town.  I attempt to visit 3 times a week and aim from 1-2 hours each time.  A warmup is a 5k run on the treadmill and then an hour of strength.  I’m not dieting because I think I need to give my body a break.  I guess I could always put myself back on the SBD (at least a month before vacation in July - Greece again!!!) but for now I’m aiming at eating healthy and cutting out the junk.

I want to be better again because I deserve this. 

Lay your seedy judgements, who says they’re part of our lives?
You own the money, you control the witness
I hear you’re lonely, don’t monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ll do it again

Faaaaack it’s cold!  Managed to pull out a half-way ok run while the wind almost sent me into Geitvika.  Now to let the blood swim back to my limbs while my face melts off. #running  (at Klæbodalen)
