Listen to your body, it’s okay to take a rest.

This week has been pretty busy for me. I also didn’t feel my best physically and I still don’t. I only went for a run on one day this week so far and it’s already Friday evening. This is why I thought first “Okay, I will go for a run today despite that it’s raining, I have muscle ache in my legs and I’m feeling tired and worn out and all I want to do is to relax and sleep.” But then I just couldn’t motivate myself. I was actually starting to stress myself a little, I have to admit because I always think…

Jag talar lite Svenska.

Yes, I talk a little Swedish but it’s really just a tiny bit. I went to Sweden for 5 months last year for a semester abroad (with Erasmus programme) and there I also had a Swedish course at university.

How my first time at the ocean made me a runner.

The first time ever I got to see the Atlantic ocean (or any ocean) was in 2011 in Portugal. It was also just my second flight ever and the first and so far only time I was flying alone. My boyfriend stayed in Portugal for 4 weeks and I joined for the last 2 weeks because sadly I couldn’t take more time off from work. We stayed in a small tepee at a campground in Ericeira because I don’t really like tents too much and it was really cheap.
