Running on Tenerife: Adeje to Montaña Carrasco and back

Running on Tenerife: Adeje to Montaña Carrasco and back

If you, like me, came to Tenerife to seek challenging trails, hard rocks, curvy paths and beautiful views you won’t be disappointed. Today I present first from many run/hikes runs I’m covering during my short summer break on Tenerife. The inspiration for this route came to me naturally when I was…

First day of the spring

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. Actually, it was the same…

Dirty dozen at Lasek Wolski

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. It’s always hard to get up…

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. The sun was setting early. It was just around 3 PM when my friend Krzysztof picked me up…

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. Last weekend of November I went on a nice trail run with my friend…

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. Dramatyczny upał, który towarzyszył nam w…

Tydzień #3 - z Dusiołkiem w tle

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. Statystyki W planie na ten tydzień było 70 kilometrów. Założenia zostały osiągnięte, ale zamiast 5 treningów zrobiłem cztery…
