A runner in the making.

I post stuff about my running; life in general, music, movies, sports & other, countless, random fandoms. I also enjoy making tons of gifs of Frank Turner and other random *things*

I do Polish, English and Italian.

Come and say hello
Always further

Simply loving all these pictures from this weekend.

Hah. It was an interesting week #tbt!

I’ve made some nice food organizing; had two evenings with awesome pasta+wine (one thing I can do is to cook Italian ;) ).

Had some great banter/post-it’s exchanges with my work colleague

Observed first sings of upcoming fall (aka yellow trees, because weather is still very summer-ish).

Then, I had this stupid bike accident on Thursday and a Friday after work (too much) beers with - what has become - a standard drinking group. And also some interesting stuff going at the office. 

Lots of cold compresses during the weekend and a lot of OCD’s during the week. Because yes, I AM one of those people. I’d check a million times if the oven, stove, all the electric extensions are turn off before I leave the house. I’d pull the door handle 3 times to make sure I really closed the doors, and.. I’d make a photo of a hair dryer to be perfectly sure that it is unplugged, cold and won’t set my house on fire.

Most of these things is connected to the fact that in my childhood, I had a very unpleasant experience of being almost suffocated by smoke in my very own house, but still.. I know that the whole thing is not normal..

Oh yes, and also I am spending my evenings watching volleyball men’s world championships. Because huh, it’s a national thing here..

Ok. 20km on bike, just 2 days after a bike accident is probably not the smartest idea on this planet, but I just had to do something! 

And actually it feels that my leg needs more stretching and movement (mixed with ice compresses) than *no activity* whatsoever. So I biked. And it was great. And as scared and down I was on Friday, today all just feels better. My knee will live. And I has spared doctors appointment on this, which is always a plus! 

 More fitness related news: I returned to MyFitnessPal. I need to stick with much more this time. 

I have this overall feeling of changes that need and will happen in my life. This is the time. And i’m pumped!

What a great movie! 

Good-bye to running for a while…

I got hit by another bike today. 

Yes. I moved my handlebar to the left, little too unexpectedly while crossing the street, however guy behind me - who was going crazy fast, tried to to overtake me at the crossroads, he pulled into pedestrian crossing, then went ahead of me and I hit his rear wheel.

I ended up lying on the street, praying that cars that were turning left would stop.

Another guy helped me with getting to the sidewalk and to the bench as I almost couldn’t walk.

Now the stress is (almost) gone. Pain is showing in its full. And my left knee hurts. My ankle hurts and now even shoulder starts to hurt. 

Damn…

Sometimes things go so wrong and pathetic they just become hilarious. 

I went to bed way too early yesterday, which resulted in waking up way too early today, which resulted in being not able to wake up when my ‘morning-running alarm- rang.

… And that resulted in waking up after sunrise (don’t like that), I put my gear on, did a little warm-up, went outside - and it all was okay.. until I ran about 700 meters. And then something in my mind went “Today is not *that* day”

I crawled myself to the beach, took some photos, tried to run some more, but then I just turned Garmin off. When I was walking back home, disgusted at myself, it started to rain. What a lovely start of a day...

Surprisingly, everything  later was alright. Good even. Only running-wise it was… well, sad. 

Just one of these days I guess…

Very nice start of the new month. Little bit hectic time in work, but after all I’ve managed to close few issues and talked a little Italian with 2 different vendors of ours.  (It’s always a great feeling, when I suggest switching from English to Italian and I feel this burst of joy and relief on the other side :D). I need to pick up my phone a bit often. It actually changes the atmosphere and helps resolving issues. People tend to act like assholes via mail much often.  

My bovver boots turned 12 on Tuesday! I went with my dad to buy them after inauguration, on the very first day of my high school! They definitely look 12 years, and I love them even more for that. My little pieces of history <3

With some friends from work we wanted to throw a good-bye summer party on Friday. There were burgers, beers and vodka. Lots of it. Strangely - I didn’t wake up hungover-ed.  Strangely, because I definitely went to bed drunk…

Summer didn’t want to say good bye and the next day we’ve met once again, this time at the beach.

Have I mentioned already that I JUST LOVE living the place I live ? :) 

I have a free Monday which I’m spending in bed; watching snooker and doing nothing… things, I mean things.

So, I was writing a very important message concerning a very important friend. To a person I have only contact with via Facebook. And this shit happens…

Great timing. Just great…

The last week of summer. Doing pretty much what I have been the last 2 or some months…

I live in the city, in which, 75 years ago, the first battle of World War II was fought.  There is a sign of the peninsula of Westerplatte:

No more war

It seems so unfortunately vague these days..
