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…

Week 32 – Shake it Out

Tweet   Another week has flown by!  Incredible!  Everyone coming back from vacation and kids are going back to school and I’m like “WHAT? I DIDN’T HAVE A SUMMER HOLIDAY YET!!” Since I want to get this post up while it’s still Monday, you’ll have to forgive me for not doing my weekly stats photo. …

Week 31 – Hot Herre

Tweet   I know everyone is talking about the weather right now and honestly I’m one of those “it is what it is” kind of people when it comes to weather and… I rarely believe the weather forecast anyway (especially here!).  But seriously?  Enough already.  It’s blazing.  We are not used to this.  As I…

Week 27 – It’s not like on TV

Tweet Dang it I wish the weeks wouldn’t fly by so quickly! There’s a big lesson I learned this week – all the things you try to do in your own reality, it’s definitely not like on TV. You don’t transform your entire house within a week (or less), you don’t become an amazing athlete…

Week 26 – Halfway There

Tweet Can you guys believe it?  Half the year is over already! Holy Cannoli!  Here’s how things went down last week: Work It’s been pretty stressful the last few weeks. At least with my colleague back from his vacation it’s been a bit better but not much. And pretty soon my manager will be away…

Week 24 – Sabotage

Tweet Ok so the whole week wasn’t sabotaged but… I have this thing, as soon as I’m doing fairly ok with losing weight, for some reason I have an issue being successful (not consciously) and I tend to sabotage myself.  This was not my best week ever, but it also wasn’t horrible.  But i’ve had…
