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.

The hardest part of the run isn’t the last few miles, it’s when the alarm goes off and you have to remember why you set that alarm and why you want this. Get up. Shoes on. Run.

26k Sunday bike ride. And after 8 months here I finally visited landscaped, forest park outside the city.

I was brought up in the lowlands and I was sure the further north the land gets flatter… HAHAHAHA OK I was wrong

it’s not a mountainous terrain, it’s a plateau. But still, few hills in these woods simply killed me. (I’ll be back!)

Awesome ride nonetheless! 

At 3 AM and 4 AM, it’s impossible to sleep… —

 Molly and The Zombies, Red Lights,

When you’re awake at this unholy hour, and you’re not at a party, work or whatever - then most probably your brain is trying to question every decision you’ve ever made, and build a one million scenarios of your life.

I had that yesterday. I had one of those though, hard nights, when all you wish is to fall asleep, and instead you keep getting images of your past life, of a life you’d wish was your past life, of what’s ahead, of what you’d like to be ahead, in front of your eyes. All the time. And you are more terrified with every single passing minute. And you feel that you can’t and won’t take this, and will definitely go crazy here… 

… and then you finally do, you fall asleep. And you  wake up. And it’s another day. And in most cases it is much, much batter than the day and night before.

And you keep on living…

My love for corn is still on.

Firstly I put these babies in a boiling water, then I put a little butter on them and LOTS of spices (pepper, oregano, basil, garlic.. you name it) and place them in the oven; and after that on a grill pan. 

Pure perfection <3

WHAT A WEEK! You can’t really say from the pictures, but trust me, it’s happened A LOT.

HUGE organizational changes at work, that I believe will only be for the better, however it created many, many stressful and unexpected moments. One of them being a visit of an occupational psychologist.

Never have been a fan of psychologists of any kind. And I remain not being one; still.

In other news: I have finally get rid of my mega uncomfortable IKEA couch and got a new one. I have celebrated  volleyball world championships (which we won!) with friends (very cool); I got my roots dyed (you need a friend for this, and I happen to have a hair maniac among mines..) and I developed strong feelings for grilled/roasted corn. Ha.

At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.

10 days after that bike accident..

and my knee still hurts. I actually started to hurt only a couple days ago. Before that it was just the stretching thing. Now it hurts  whenever I try to bend or straighten my leg. And that sucks enormously, as 10 days ago I saw myself running by now. 

I have an appointment with orthopedist but only on Friday. I’m thinking about hitting to a *normal* one earlier. 

Weather is just perfect for running…Also, I am in such a good place right now, and seriously all I need is to be able to get moving again…

So, that’s sucks. 

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!
