Monthly update, April 2018

It was an interesting month. It passed by quickly though, like other months too. I get the feeling that the time is accelerating. Or maybe its because we live busy lives, not always focus on what’s essential for us. Training I’m writing this on Sunday, so the last day of the month is tomorrow, but…

Spring bottom bounce, March 2018

Closing this month with small amounts of updates. So, today is the last day of March. Mentally, it’ll be the mark of the end of the winter period. Again, the month was busy with work, and not so much happen, so it felt a bit insignificant. Training I’m embarrassed by the progress in this month. My…

Training into the unknown - beginning 2018

The first month of January went pretty fast. Here’s some short report from it. Training I didn’t set for any big goal for this year. I didn’t sign up for any race; I don’t have any particular distance to reach. I would preferably focus on the groundwork. So my principal focus is just to train and…

Monthly update, November 2017

In the beginning of the last month of 2017, I’m writing a short summary of November to check and update about what’s going on in my life. It didn’t feel long, but it’s been already a year since we’ve moved to the UK. It was good 12 months although too much focused still on getting everything…

Slow and low July 2017

Summer in London is different than in Poland - I guess, it’s more bearable. Not so much extreme weather changes, not freaking hot, which is good for living in the city. This month passed quickly, again. Let’s look into July in my quick, monthly retrospective. On running I put less effort into…

Can't believe it is already summer, June 2017

A month in review, February 2017

A second month already almost behind me. Time flew fast, there wasn’t much happening, though. Again, a little too much work and stress and not enough of perseverance… Training I didn’t train as much as I expected. In total, I’ve trained for about 9 hours and run for only around 30 km. I was swimming…
