Good time for a run, beautiful autumn weather, no rain, sunshine. Two runs on two Saturdays, now week between.

The length is the same, the map is exactly the same. And I enjoyed both, and the second one contained splits that are closer to my best. 5:38 per kilometre is not that bad – although I would love to perform around 5:00.

Anyway, off to a great start! Click for the details!

I don’t say it can never be better, but nowadays I just get the feeling that there are certain places (and other things) that are simply not for us as a family and as a group with 3 children.

Maybe it’s just the age difference: 10+, 6, 1, which makes it a little bit harder to handle the pack. They all are in a different behavioural coordination system with different needs and different style and of course with quite different personalities.

Jeez, how different!

Time to move

Well, I was meant to write about my diet, but I could not find the time – and by now it is a little bit late. Of course I started a draft post, but could not finish it – anyway, I can still do that.

The most important thing is, that I managed to lose more than 7 kilograms in three months, and once the circumstances were perfect today morning – I hadn’t drunk beer the day before and I woke up in time in the morning to go for a run.

Thinking of my style

I have already kind of mentioned that I am at a stage of my life where I am looking for a couple of different things, like meaning of life and other hopefully easier topics – while constantly learning. Learning about professional things, self-development, blogging, copywriting and so on..

Well, about blogging, I keep bumping into style and finding my own style and the style of the blog and the posts, so style and style again.

And then somehow I realised that, well, I can’t really say that I have already found my one. Or at least if I have found it then it is not reflected on the blog and in the posts.

A new target could help?

I couldn’t really accomplish my aim and reach the target of making running a habit again, so I figured maybe a concrete target could do it for me.

I found it hard to run in the city on the pavements and on the asphalt roads – yeah, unfortunately my body shows the signs of being not-so-easy on the circumstances any more. And of course there were other reasons behind it, the dog days here in Hungary lasting for weeks, my general tiredness etc. And of course I could go on forever finding the reasons, but you know there is something wrong when you can easily find the reasons.

The delivery

So, the boy is more than one-month old by now, and it has been quite a journey, from the beginning. As everything, even his birth was different and contrary to the planned, he’s doing everything differently from the girls.

It started as a normal birth but then the doctors decided that it was time for a C-section – and I was terrified. I hadn’t been used to that kind of things, the girls arrived exactly on the suggested time without any complication, easily, really. And of course, the doctor said three times that

“there’s no need to worry, at all”

and that made me angry, really. Frightened, rather.

My slogan

For years, whatever happened, I had only one thing to say: “You don’t get to tell me what to do here!” Of course, it was fun, it wasn’t meant to be aggressive or degrading to anyone, it was really only a bloody sentence to say something not appropriate in every situation.

We laughed a lot about it – I remember one occasion when I was in a hotel with Csino, a very good friend of mine, and I don’t know how, but something brought up the line: Simon meets God, and when God wants to say something, Simon says: you don’t get to tell me what to do here!

OK, now that doesn’t sound so funny, but back then it was. I can’t explain it why, but it was. Maybe we were drunker then than now, but I remember that it happened in the morning – although that does not rule out being the alcohol.

Anyway, I have always had some kind of favourite words or expressions, sentences through my life, these things have been following me.
