WRD: Week 31 and Hello August!

Tweet Whoo hoo! It’s August! We are getting closer and closer to the marathon and now my birthday is less than a month away. I’m really happy my mileage is going up. I’m still struggling a bit with endurance but I’m just going to keep on keeping on. Wonder how many kilometers I’ll run in…

WRD: Week 30 – Stronger

Tweet This week was much better as far as work goes, but it was finally “our” turn to experience the Heatwave from Hell. Training continued, sleep remained difficult, at some point the airco at work didn’t even work properly anymore (and it’s normally freezing in the office). We had two days that were the “hottest…

WRD: Vacation Catch-Up

Tweet It’s been a few weeks, my 3-week summer holiday is officially coming to an end and, to be honest, I have no idea how I’m going to start up again; work, training, keeping up with housework, cooking, etc. UGH. First world problems right? I’m going to try and keep this short – I know…

WRD: Week 24 Back in the Saddle

Tweet This week was finally a bit “normal” – I wasn’t sick, I worked four days, and I got a lot of activity in. Little Love Note to the Commenters: I’m so sorry I haven’t replied on comments the last few posts. Life and Work has been busy; I’m hopefully going to catch up this…

WRD: Week 23 -What’s the Time?

Tweet It’s time to get ill, apparently. So, yeah, this week was kind of a wash. I want to say I started off strong, but to be honest (firstly, with myself) I was already sick last week Friday and just fighting it. I’ve been sick more than a week, the worst of it really being…

WRD: Catching Up Week 19+20

Tweet I’m going to try and keep this weekly run down as short and sweet as possible. I know how hard it is to follow up on all the blogs in the linkup so I want to make this as easy as possible. You’re welcome. Hahaha! I can’t believe it was just last week that…

WRD: Week 18 – Liberation

Tweet While the US is celebrating Cinco de Mayo, here in the Netherlands we have the Dodenherdenking (Remembrance of the Dead) and Bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day). The Netherlands was under German occupation from 1940 – 1945 and, thanks to the allies – in particular the British, Canadian, Polish and American troops – every year we celebrate…

WRD: Week 17 -Kings & Queens

Tweet Well, really just one King (and one Queen). That is the King of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander. Every year we celebrate Kings Day (it used to be Queen’s Day until his mum retired) with a “free” market, lots of food and music festivals throughout the cities and villages. King’s day is the actual birthday of…
