Running Progress August 2019


As you guys know, I am documenting my jogging progress since I began to run. A month ago I was documenting how I managed to do a non-stop 4 km run. The previous year I managed it to do 5 km but I never could run further than that. But guess what happened today? I ran 6.2 km without a single break. It was a non-stop run and I am super excited about it. It’s a huge milestone because it means now I could basically participate in a 5k run as I broke through 5 km several times and now … Continue reading Running Progress August 2019

I took the snapshot when I was done with my jogging tour. I have a nice belt where I can carry a 0.5 liter bottle of water with me.

I like the fact that spreadsheets and graphs can help me to achieve long-term goals. There is something about looking at graphs, because they make you realize your actions … Continue reading Healthier Habits

I’m Proud Because I Am Achieving Things I Thought I Couldn’t Achieve Anymore


The photo above is not very special, because it’s just a random snapshot of our Trave Channel. I like to add photos to my posts, but this post here is not so much about the photo but about something else. Today I just noticed that I am proud, actually pretty proud about myself. Because I was swimming again, even if I went jogging yesterday. But I felt great after two hours swimming and I sat at home thinking, or daydreaming. Do you know these moments when you ask yourself what goes well at the moment, and what goes not so … Continue reading I’m Proud Because I Am Achieving Things I Thought I Couldn’t Achieve Anymore
