So, it’s been over two weeks since I’ve started my 6 months challenge. I must say I am really proud of myself. Keeping it up, not skipping any training. So far, I managed to work out a routine: 2 x running, 2 x gym, 2 x yoga. I also try to eat a little bit healthier, which is not the easiest thing to do, especially that I have to cook for myself. I can’t cook.. For the past two weeks I’ve been trying to find an hour to go shopping, as my fridge looks like every typical students’ fridge: wine, cheese and a carrot (thought I may start liking carrots, because they are healthy and give your skin this nice color, but well, the only possible way for me to eat a carrot is while dipping it in my favorite fatty hummus). However, when I decided to have something unhealthy in the downtown, my belly was hurting, which as far as I am concerned, means that I have already changed my diet for a better one. Unfortunately, it looks like my University professors are trying to make my die out of starvation – basically, for the past month, all the spare time I had, I’ve spent studying, so… no food for Olga!
I can see my body is changing. It’s not like I look like one of these girls from fitness channels on TV, but there is a tiny progress. And my legs feel stronger, so last time I went for a run, I must say, it was a pure pleasure. So, I’ve completed two weeks out of 26, still 24 to go.
About the St. Valentine’s Day.. Most hated day in the world – as always, I celebrated in an unusual way – running. As I mentioned in a previous post, we completed the St. Valentine’s 10k Run with my Dad, having my mommy as the audience. So far, it’s been one of the toughest runs I’ve ever completed. Almost 900 people (mostly couples, which was really cute), running in the forest. The ground wasn’t frozen anymore and it was 5 degrees, so you can only imagine the amount of mud we were sinking in. I reached the finish line, with my face red like a beetroot, with the result of 1:12 – the worst one over the past 1.5 year, but.. We did it, that’s the most important. The medals we got, compensated all the inconveniences.
I guess I can consider the week 2 as a successful one! I hope, guys that it wasn’t only for me. Wish you an amazing week 3!
