RUN BABY RUN: Excuses

Okay so I was pretty much of a runner one month ago at this time. I remember doing 15k on the same street just to get them done even if it was dark. I remember going to the gym once a day, no days off, cycling like 20k per day, studying in the gym because…

RUN BABY RUN: Bye Shorts

It’s November. Sleeves are getting longer. Days are getting shorter. But we are still running.   If you had been following me for a while, you would certainly have read about the problem I used to have with running in shorts. I simply didn’t feel comfortable with them. Of course, along this journey my legs…

RUN BABY RUN: Why I Decided to End the Streak 

Running everyday is fun. It’s like having a little appointment with yourself, sometimes you win, sometimes you learn you have a long road in front of you. Honestly, running everyday is also very painful. Your body has no time to recover, therefore I slept with compression socks 4 times in 9 days. It’s my extreme…

RUN BABY RUN: Day After Day

It’s easy. One day in, one day off. You have all the time that you want to rest you body and make it ready for the day after. But, what about running every single day? After reading about Kyrstie experience, this thing started to interest me a lot. I’m not sure I could handle running…

RUN BABY RUN: 10K

Here we go again. Running shoes, such close friends on a lot of days, have seemed to be kind of an unknown object in my room, since I came back from London. It has been 6 days. Tomorrow seven. It’s unbelievable keeping on not running for such a long streak, I find it weird. I…

RUN BABY RUN: What’s Next?

On Sunday, I basically crossed that finish line smiling more than ever, happy about the result. As soon as I checked my time, however, I thought I could do it faster. I am an ambitious person, you know that. Anyway, that was literally my first thought, therefore I believe I was pretty ready to face…

Respect the Journey: My First Half

     Alarm clock was set for 6 am, but I started freaking our way before it rang. It was my first seruous race and I was excited, scared, terrified with butterflies in my stomach. I did some stretching and some core stability in the room, the walked to the Health & Fitness Village in Hyde…

RUN BABY RUN: 6 Days

It’s already Monday. Monday 5th October. And I’m literally freaking out. I remember with a smile the day I bought my bib, when October seemed so far, and now it’s here, isn’t it crazy?On Saturday I did my last endurance (15k) and it was amazing. All the effort brought me to the absolute record on…

Run Baby Run: I’m Alive

Good morning my fellow runner! I know what you are thinking, are you even a blogger? You are not publishing regular enough.I am really sorry but pressure is literally killing me. Back to school less than two weeks ago and already been told I have to study very hard for the exams. Then endurance runs…

15 Running Thoughts: Before, Meanwhile & After

What does push an average runner to go out once more for some painful km? It’s hard to answer, because there are 3 different moments when a runner decides to commit themselves to this average sport, which is not that average.        Before 1. I ate way too much. It’s better if I burn some…

RUN BABY RUN: Pooh Pooh

   Yesterday I decided to commit my evening to training once more. It was a great idea, I though, I would burn some calories, I would feel great afterwards and I would sweat out bad thoughts. So I picked up a Nike outfit and went straight to the gym, at around 6. I biked 10km…

RUN BABY RUN: Long or Short?

I look confused I guess. First you saw me very happy about my 20km, then you saw my excitement for the mile pace thing. I believe both short distances and long ones are great. You only need to find a balance between them. Let’s be honest. I couldn’t stand a fast but short run every…
