  • View from Thames bank at Battersea, London, UK personal journal Spring training update

    I can finally feel that I'm breaking free from the misery mixture of being unmotivated, lazy and just feeling low. It is still early, only roughly two months of training, but I can already feel some changes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recovery month, March 2017 personal journal Recovery month, March 2017

  • A month in review, February 2017 personal journal 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...

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Resolving resolutions personal journal Resolving resolutions

    One year ago I wrote about some of my resolutions for the upcoming 2014. Even though it seems like everyone is bashing new years resolutions, we may call them differently but we all have them. So last year I posted here four points. Let’s see how I’ve got them.

  • Hamburger run running log Hamburger run
