Running Solves All The Problems :)

Yesterday morning started with a wonderful run with running buddy that I ran into by accident. The time flew by and I hated that I had to cut the workout, because it would have been super duper to do all the 15+ miles I had in my training plan. But one has to work...

Enjoyed the run in the brand new Nike LunarGlide 5 ... Found them little stiff at first (maybe because my LG4 are so worn out and therefore have lighter feel now?), but today they felt great. They are my go to shoes for long runs especially on hard surfaces.

Another new thing to my training is this cute little "baby" ... my very first own kettlebell!! Friend is teaching me how to do proper deadlift and kettlebell swing. My second is now on its way to be delivered - gonna be a 16 kg one :) Friends, if you want to start up with kettlebell, just be sure to have proper instruction (by that I do not mean watching a YouTube video ...), you can really hurt your back, shoulders etc. by not doing this right!

I also got an equipment to be able to do pull ups at home, well to attempt pull ups. My physiotherapist checked my form in the negative pull up and it ain't any good, so I am now practicing tiny uncomfortable movements to get my form better and get ready to future attempts in better form :)

About running solving the problems ... The upper part of the IG photo is afternoon snack while working from home - celery sticks with salted pumpkinseed butter - delicious treat! Then I went on a sushi date and unfortunately was abandoned for unknown reasons ... So what? I jumped on a treadmill and finished of my daily dose of mileage. You know I was willing to sacrifice half of my 15 miler for a date! I was upset for the evening turning out strange at first, but then the zen feeling while finishing my mileage was priceless!!! Hence the title of this post :o) Running solves all the problems...
And I deserved a refuel and a treat in one :) Cottage cheese, banana, whey protein isolate - chocolate smooth flavor from MyProtein and bit of milk. I kept it little thick on purpose so it was more like a dessert than a shake. Yummy!
Yep, I started to supplement my protein intake just after the workouts, so I can keep my muscles on and hopefully shred some body fat :) I ordered it from MyProtein, that is based in UK. High quality for affordable price with fast shipping to the Czech Republic. Tastes great! I have been incorporating some tips from Kiefer's CarbNite Solution and more of CBL - Carb BackLoading. So that's why I got these and they seem to be working. We will see!

How is your running going guys?
