WRD – Falling Into A Routine

Tweet I have to apologise to my blogger friends – I really had some challenges with time last week and I did not get to all the blogs in the linkup. I try to go to every single blog and I think I have missed 4 or 5. So I’m sorry if I missed your…

WRD: Week 44 Week of Workouts

Tweet It’s time for the weekly run down! It was a good week for planned vs. actual. It was a week still needing improvement on the mental and emotional side, but I’m taking things day by day and that’s all I can do right? Monday – Planned: Gym, strength program Actual: exactly that Tuesday –…

Tweet Welcome again to the Weekly Run Down! Hey everyone! it’s time again for the weekly run down. I am participating even though I am not running, because the WRD is actually a link up for health & fitness bloggers – mostly runners, I admit – and it’s a great way to meet like minded…

WRD: Stormy Weather

Tweet I had a lot of hope for this week. It seemed like the universe was a little bit against that hope. It’s fine. It just could have been better. WAY better. It is full on Autumn here in the Netherlands. For those of you who know nothing about the seasons here it goes a…

WRD: A Sh*t-ton of Lemonade Available Now!

Tweet Hey everyone. Remember me? It’s been, what, 6 or 7 weeks since I last posted. And a lot happened. Some of you know and some of you don’t. So I’ll try to keep it short and sweet. Chicago Marathon Training Last I wrote, I had made it through 8 weeks of marathon training. It…

WRD – Week 33 Noah Called

Tweet Week 8 of 16 Chicago Marathon training is a done deal. I’m halfway and I feel about a quarter ready to take on the distance. I’m not going to dwell too much on the negative that I feel, because I know it does not help me. Pushing onwards. You know how you shouldn’t compare…

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…
