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.

Running and riding the bike

It’s only Thursday, though, I know, I know, but I am so bloody satisfied with this week that I feel like I am in heaven.

As I mentioned earlier, last week I started running again and took my bike to a bike service – and this Wednesday I was ready to wake up early and go for a run. And this time I was able to run 6.4 kilometres, only walked for a while (although my training plan suggested it more frequently through the earphones), and had that very happy feeling after it.

My running history

It seems like I started my running career in 2013, my first run was a 4.79 km run and since then I have done almost 1666 kilometres all together.

I thought that I would give it a try but then I kind of fell in love with running. It kind of started badly but when I understood that my body needed help and carefulness in terms of the frequency and the length of activities, I could run a lot.

I loved the summers after my second daughter was born in 2013 – my wife was at home and there was summer holiday in the school so I could wake up at 6 or earlier in the morning and enjoy the morning air. I was doing 10+ kilometres back then and loved it. Morning, running lonely, music, whatever.

But then I had a couple of health issues and 2017 was a bad year, I managed only 137 kilometres.
