Longer strides, pure motivation flowing through my veins, constant sound of breathing and heartbeat drowned out by music, full concentration and cold. I remember nothing but this bunch of feelings from the run I’ve finished right now. And I like it.
- Distance: 27 Km
- Ellapsed time: 2h 5m 37s
- NEW PR 21’1Km 1h 35m 55s
Running like never before, feeling like a wild beast every time I wear my running shoes.I’m addicted.
Wearing my pajama, schedule prepared, lifting tons of books and notes, 9 exams during next week, could this be considered as an intellectual marathon? Anyway I WILL run this afternoon for sure! Hope you’re all doing well, fitblrs!
Sudden doubt! Why is Super Mario still being fat after running so much?!
I didn’t remember. Oh my hamstrings… If that thing about “No pain, no gain” is true, today I’ve reached heaven.
- Take a pineapple.
- Cut it into pieces.
- Put that pieces on the pizza.
This was me today, the tube got cancelled and I had to run from one station to the other across London! No problem, made my connection
Me: DUDE! I’ve just noticed!!! Do you live in London? I was there last March, in my second month of weight loss, on a trip across UK, I spent like 4 days in the city! We could have shared a Footlong on Subway! (Damn, I miss Subway soooo much, hope someday they will come here too….)
sorry about your car but glad to see you turned this situation into a positive by running!!
Me: FUCK the car, running rocks! And you rock as well! You already know it, don’t ya?
I absolutely LOVE your posts! You have such an engaging way of writing. You kicked that car’s metal ass. If only I’d been a runner when I had my old Rover Mini!
Me: Hahahaha, thank you so much, and congrats by joining a gym!!! I use to wonder if you, my lovely fitblr friends would understand me… Your reply proves that: a) you get exactly what I mean b) you don’t, but that big misunderstood sounds great to you :P Anyway FUCK YEAH! I kicked that big, cold, metal volvo’s ass indeed. And it doesn’t matter if you were a runner when you had your old car. The question is… are you a runner today? Could you beat a lazy car, or escape from a zombie apocalypse? If you aren’t, think about it. Or do some push ups. BUT DO SOMETHING, HONEY!
Hi Joey! Well… Turn on the stove, add a tablespoon of olive oil(Mmmm…) and salt if you wish (I don’t), peel off and cut two cloves of garlic into sheets, and add it into the pot along with a laurel leaf when oil is hot. Stir it slowly until garlic becomes golden. Then we put the rice inside (when I cook for myself, 100g equals one serving) and keep stirring it slowly for 30-45 seconds. After that, add water (350 ml for each 100g of rice) and cook -medium heat- until it gets “ALMOST” dry. Finally, when it seems to be completely dry in less than one minute, remove the pot from the stove, cover it with a tea towel and wait 5 minutes.
Eat brown rice like a Sir!
Thursday, 11/23/11, 21:05. I’m going back home after a tiring day at work. Suddenly, my car dies, in the middle of nowhere.
_Fuck!- I shout.
After hitting my head against the steering wheel repeatedly, I search for the tow truck phonenumber, and peer into my pocket looking for my phone. It isn’t there. Passenger seat… either. Bag… Nope. 4th dimension… Negative. So… I’m here, alone, in the middle of the road, 4 km until closest town, no phone, no traffic, no daylight… I take a breath, keep calm, dig into my gym bag, take running pants & running shoes, a hi-speed red flash like Superman and I’m ready to run! I leave the car, close the door and run the hell outta there. 20 minutes later, I’m home. Fuck you, old car, I WIN.
Gym is 3km far from home, so tomorrow when I wake up, I’ll run up to the gym (said warming up), lift some weights, run 8-10k with my crew, do some abs and go back home (running too, of course). You said “No excuses” :D
Your lovely roommate boiled some veggies (Gracias, Barbara!),but you don’t like them (I find those veggies pretty disgusting in particular), but you know you NEED to eat them because:
_Go to complain, and maybe this would be the last time your roommate cooks for you.
_They are way too healthy, vitamin rich food for dinner :D
_Brown rice gets prepared in 30 minutes, but it’s 23:00 and you are soooooooo fucking tired!!!
Take the boiled veggies, add some spice (white pepper in my case, blend them and…
Give me some advice while I kill some undeads. Which other games should I choose?
Hi Mikey! I hope for another private ask telling me how you’ve been doing lately!
Let’s be clear. Knee pain is runner’s bitch, specially if you are/ you’ve been overweight. Not just when running, but after running too, maybe for several days. I had knee pain most weeks since I started running, and losing weight was the thing that helped the most. Unfortunately, there isn’t a magic trick to avoid/take away this pain. Respect the time of rest, ice baths and stretch properly, these are the best weapons of which you have.
Greatest rugby match. 6 tries. I feel like a tiger. Roarggh!!!
Good night from 3rd half. Cheers!
Hi dear anon!
I’m Spanish too, and unfortunately, I don’t know who you are, but I’m here for everyone who needs me, so contact me as you wish, I’m always pleased to help :D
Thanks a lot!
what is this fabulous thing???
It was an apple & puff pastry pie, made with olive oil, sugar, wheat, water, baking powder, apples and soooo much love (AKA HUNGER). Now it’s just a bunch of ATP inside my cells, and a smile in my face :D
I had to sit down and take a rest from reading that. U tired me out!
Well, I’m tired, you aren’t. Keep calm & do some squats, push-ups, go for a run, DO SOMETHING! Always harder bro, that’s the real way to become better.
This just motivated me to run like an animal. You are my absolute favorite.
Did it motivated you to run like an animal? Well, in that case, I want to see a sweaty, happy, post-running Crystal pic! I have you on my crushes too, keep being that awesome!
I live in Castellón, Eastern part of Spain, not far away from Valencia.
Let me know when you are coming, maybe we could join a race together? It sounds awesome for me!
Really simple. So… today I woke up at 7 0’clock, had banana+8datiles as snack and headed to gym. Lats weight lifting, abs workout, then a wild Paloma appeared and we went out for a run! 10 km, 48:02 min. I wanted more, but she had pilates, so we went back to gym.
Today, like always since October, I suffered a terrible hunger. I’m eating like a dinosaur. Voracious. For example, look what I baked as morning snack:
I cut it into 20 little portions to share it with my family. It never happened. I ate the whole thing by myself. Today my intake was 3200 kcal. However, I lost another pound from last Monday.
After work, time 2 run again. I just couldn’t stop my legs. They wanted, so 8km run in 41:17 min and waaaay more relaxed, now I’m able to read, study, procrastinate here on tumblr and stay seated for longer than 10 min without urge to jump, squat, do push-ups or throw my rugby ball against the wall a hundred times. I’m affraid I’m getting pretty hyperactive. Anyway, active = fun!
Hahaha well let me think… I was 18, having a nice time with friends on a friend’s 18th b-day, we paid a restaurant to open just for us, tied our friend to a column, took his clothes out, covered him in cream, red wine, honey, oregan… It was funny :D After that, four friends and I came into the restaurant room totally naked except a cowboy hat covering our parts, and began to sing spanish version of “Achy breaky heart” when suddenly the whole family of the birthday’s guy appeared, because he told them where we were going to celebrate the party. Since that day, everytime I hear this song, I remember his granny’s smile xDDDDDDDD
I like girls, but I don’t like them. It’s kinda love-hate relationship. Spanish girls are meant to prefer bad boys so I have little success with them. In addition, I’m attracted by personality rather than physical, and here… beautiful personalities I’ve known are engaged or lesbian D:
