Worth it!

Don’t you just love those days when you get home and fall asleep before your head touches the pillow? I sure do! Last Wednesday was one of those days.

After work I donated blood. I was very disappointed after my weight was measured. Three months of training and I’m still at 74 kg. I’m eating more, I’m exercising but no weight gain. Sad face. 😦 This was my third time and I used my right arm for the bloodwork. The previous time I almost fainted, I think I got up too quickly after the donation. On this occasion I didn’t experience any dizziness or negative effects. I ate 6 cookies and a chocolate bar afterwards. Totally worth it! 😀 The only side effect was that the next day I ran at a very slow average speed – 11 km/h.

Later that day I had the best Latin dancing lesson so far. It was the 5th lesson and everybody more or less knew what they were doing. We were actually dancing and it looked good. I also learned a “half-turn” which seemed like one of those fancy moves. I like the progress I’ve made.

Among other things, this week I hosted two German girls – Claudia and Steffi – for 3 days (via Couchsurfing). It was nice to have them in the house but I didn’t really get to know them very well. I was at work during the morning/day and they went into the city in the afternoon. So we only had several hours of quality time in the evenings. I think I should plan some activities for my couchsurfing guests.


Today I spent most of the day fantasizing… fantasizing about running a marathon in the Olympics. I Googled a bit and found out that a time of 2h15m would qualify me. Not a problem! All I need to do is put one foot in front of the other with an average speed of about 20 km/h. Easy-peasy!

Fueled by my naïve dreams and imagination I bought compression calf sleeves. You know, just to look a tiny bit more professional when training.

I’ll see you guys at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
