… the number of squats I did yesternight, a little over 24h ago, and that I am still feeling in my upper leg muscles. 29 29 31 31 35 35 29 29 28 29 Seventy five second breaks between each … Continue reading
My favorite after 1-2 hours of swimming. 500g Skyr (or Quark), unflavored 500ml multi-fruit juice (here in Iceland I use Floridana Heilsusafi) 2 bananas Throw in blender, blend and then enjoy the goodness *yummy* I also like this one a … Continue reading
Today I ran an informal 5K, just to see whether I can cope. I could. Of course this was with intervals, so it was 4 minutes run, then 1 minute walk, but nevertheless. Took me 43:56.51 for 5.07 km at … Continue reading

C25K: 2nd day, 1st week completed. Speeds are suboptimal, but whatever.
Ich hatte bereits über die letzten paar Wochen und Monaten damit angefangen gesünder zu essen, nur eins hat mit noch gefehlt. Kalorienzählen. Die Geschichte von Ben Davis, der zu Beginn seines Gewichtsverlusts – Januar 2009 – 10 Jahre jünger war … Continue reading
