I guess it’s summer now

Today I had a very special run. I completed 8 km at the end of a super hot summer day – and it was still about 30° C when I came back home.

At first I was quite sceptical while putting on my running shoes, thinking about my health and so on. But guess what? The run was awesome! I never thought that the heat wouldn’t bother my body at all, but that’s just the way it was. Well, maybe I’m a summer person…

What’s your favourite running temperature?

Homemade protein bars

Seriously, who of you likes the taste of protein bars? I don’t. And so I decided to make them my own way. I took 5 dl oats, 1,5 dl vanilla flavoured protein powder, 6 egg whites, 1 dl sliced almonds, a pinch of salt and mixed it all with a tablespoon After that I shaped small bars and put them in the oven (150°C – 20 minutes). Just in case you want them to be sweeter: try to add a mashed banana.

Have already tried two bars – they are so delicious! And the texture is very soft. Yummy!

First out, then in

IMG_1599 IMG_1741Wow, what an amazing day! I ran in the snow. It was just a short 6 km run but at least I did it. One week without running was really hard for me. Everytime I listened to a song from my workout playlist I got this tingling in my legs, I just wanted to run. Maybe you remember that I was a bit scared of running on snowy paths, but seriously today was just  awesome!! The temperature was about -3°C but my brightful running clothes did a great job. And surprise, surprise: after the run I was swimming for 30 minutes. Feel reborn now!
