    We all know how it starts. Beginning of the year, we start the month with a head full of ideas and a heard full of hope. And then live gets us.

  • Running towards the changes training Running towards the changes

    This year was truly a setback to me. In the beginning, I grappled with the injury that I carried even from the previous season. Running was always an afterthought, and I've found enough excuses to skip way too many training runs. But this is going to change.

  • Wrapping up 2018 personal journal Wrapping up 2018

  • 2017 - a year in review personal journal 2017 - a year in review

    It has become my tradition to spend couple hours by the end of a year and write a yearly review post. I'm doing that since last couple years. Today I'm writing this on retrospection of 2017. I invite you to read my share of struggles and moments of joy, successes & failures, ups, and downs.

  • Running Magurski Ultramaraton running log Running Magurski Ultramaraton

    It's been already three weeks since the event and I don't want my memories to fade away. On 19th of August, 2017 I've attempted to run and finished 58km route of Magurski Ultramaraton in Kępna, Poland. I'm proud of this accomplishment and I want to share this experience with you.

  • Slow and low July 2017 personal journal 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.

  • Can't believe it is already summer, June 2017 personal journal Can't believe it is already summer, June 2017

    Just 2 days ago I went for a run on a warm and sunny afternoon and this thought struck me. It's already July and that means we're already in the 2nd half of the year. Amazing, how the time flies. If you care enough about what I do and think, stay with me for my monthly update.

  • Stepping up the game, May 2017 personal journal Stepping up the game, May 2017

    It is the first week of June 2017 and that means it's time to write my monthly review again. May was again busy month (tell me which wasn't) but I'm actually quite happy with everything that's happened and the progress I've made.

  • Photographing the 2017 London Marathon photo story Photographing the 2017 London Marathon

    The 2017 London Marathon was one of my first attempt to street & event photography in London. I didn't set many expectations about the outcome as I haven't done much of this kind of shoots in the past. So instead, I've turned my mindset towards exploration and fun.

  • Happy to be there personal journal Happy to be there

    First 10 days of July passed and I feel I need to report some of the details about the progress for last couple weeks. Summer is fully here. Days are quite long, weather's not bad, things are rolling.

  • Run in a park, score 5k running log Run in a park, score 5k

    Friday afternoon my buddy wrote on Facebook that he's gonna participate in the 5K Parkrun. Since I've never taken a part in it, I've thought I'll give it a shot. I've also never participated in a 5K race, so it was a good challenge as well.

  • Back on track in June personal journal Back on track in June

    Damn, it's been more than a month since I've wrote about running. To be honest, it wasn't very intense. Only couple of short runs and one longer run trip. But this month I'm finally starting to feel it.

  • Run to magic places running log Run to magic places

    Sometimes I'm just amazed how the same route looks and feels when you run it at a different time. Today, I went on the run in the evening, just about 1 hour before sunset. The photographers say that it's and golden hour.

  • First day of the spring running log First day of the spring

    I’m not exactly sure whether it was last day of winter or the first day of spring. But as usual, we’ve set for a run. Initially, we’ve actually planned to go somewhere else, but because of some unforeseen event day before, we’ve settled for a shorter route in Lasek Wolski.

  • Dirty dozen at Lasek Wolski running log Dirty dozen at Lasek Wolski

    Running this Sunday was all about mud, wet and slippery slopes. We started around 9:00 and traversed some nice trail paths in Lasek Wolski, small forest area in western part of Kraków. It was nice, technical run, mixed with a lot of sliding through mud and rain puddles.

  • Slow but steady, February winter edition personal journal Slow but steady, February winter edition

    Sometimes the journey is slow. Sometimes it’s just feels like you’re in the same place. If you’ve ever felt this way, then welcome. This month was just slow. I mean, it wasn’t nothing. There was lot of work, some training here and there but no big progress. Let’s take a look and see why

  • Magic run running log Magic run

    There is always something special when reaching the summit. Doesn’t matter if it’s a rocky peak in a high mountain range or a small mound in the city. The reward is there, always. You just need to reach for it.

  • Running up this winter running log Running up this winter

    I don’t know why, but this season I was too lazy. I’ve only run occasionally, couple times per month (if any). Should improve that maybe during this winter. But from time to time, anyway I always enjoy a break from the city.

  • My month in review: August 2015 personal journal My month in review: August 2015

    Phew, this was busy month. It’s not even an end yet – still have one day to go – but I have to write this summary anyway. I doubt it will change that much tomorrow. So, lets get through.

  • 2x Śnieżka, edycja 2015 running log 2x Śnieżka, edycja 2015

    Drugi raz pojawiłem się na starcie biegu “3x Śnieżka = 1x Mount Blanc”. Kilka miesięcy temu w głowie krążyły mi jeszcze przelotne myśli aby wystartować na dystansie ultra, ale oczywiście za mała ilość treningów skłoniła mnie do podjęcia krótszego wyzwania.

  • Marzec 2015 - raport i przemyślenia running log Marzec 2015 - raport i przemyślenia

    Z lekkim poślizgiem postaram się przeanalizować poprzedni miesiąc. Z końcówką lutego zacząłem w miarę regularne treningi i marzec był pierwszym miesiącem, w którym udało mi się to całkiem dobrze. A więc do dzieła.

  • Biegowe plany na 2015 personal journal Biegowe plany na 2015

    Na przestrzeni lutego zacząłem powoli wracać do biegania. Na razie było to dosyć nieregularnie i chyba całkiem bez celu. Nastał marzec, zima na razie odeszła a ja biegam trochę częściej.

  • Hamburger run running log Hamburger run

    Po prawie miesięcznej przerwie udało mi się znów trochę pobiegać. Nie był to jakoś specjalnie długi bieg, ledwie niecałe 7km. Ale dla mnie miało to duże znaczenie. Z kilku powodów…

  • 2014 Beskidy Ultra Trail report photo story 2014 Beskidy Ultra Trail report

    Niestety nie wystartowałem w tegorocznej edycji Beskidy Ultra Trail. I choć złożyło się na to kilka powodów, ostatecznie jestem z tego mimo wszystko zadowolony. Udało mi się za to pojawić z aparatem na trasie wyścigu i zrobić kilka zdjęć uczestnikom. Okazało się to samo w sobie organizacyjnym wyzwaniem.

  • Tydzień #3 - z Dusiołkiem w tle running log Tydzień #3 - z Dusiołkiem w tle

    Upłynął już trzeci tydzień. I znów wszystko poszło dobrze. Może nie całkiem zgodnie z planem, bo pozwoliłem sobie na spore odstępstwa, ale za to było ciekawie i intensywnie.

  • Tydzień #2 za nami! running log Tydzień #2 za nami!

    Siedem dni szybko zleciało. Udało mi się wykonać zgodnie z planem wszystkie 5 treningów i jestem z tego całkiem zadowolony. Zapraszam do krótkiego podsumowania.

    Za 23 tygodnie BUT90 – Beskidy Ultra Trail. To jeszcze nie setka. Ale kolejne wyzwanie. Po ostatnich doświadczeniach z Chudego Wawrzyńca, zamierzam się lepiej przygotować...

    I wanted to write this since long time.

  • Spring run #1 running log Spring run #1

    Co prawda nie ma jeszcze kalendarzowej wiosny, ale pogoda kwalifikuje ten bieg do kategorii wiosennej. Korzystając z wolnego weekendu postanowiłem wybrać się wreszcie na trochę dłuższe wybieganie...

  • Running recap of 2013 running log Running recap of 2013

    Since 2010 running has become an important part of my life and I couldn’t imagine myself without it. So, year 2013 has come to an end and I’d like to take a look back on the important events that happened to me during that time.
