Ran my second 10k this morning


Hello my lovelies :)
Have you ever started something and then had a lot of trouble to getting started again? It's easy to lose motivation or energy to do something and it's really hard to restart again. It's a tough thing, because we all get distracted, we all get busy and sometimes we get so busy and we just stop doing something that's important. In my case, I stopped running. I used to run several times a week. And two months ago we moved to one property and after another month we moved to another house (the one we live now) and I had to do lots of things, also, I was very frustrated with the situation and I didn't realise I broke my routine: I stopped running, I stopped walking, I stopped all kind of exercises, except cycling.  Today I decided to run again, I love running a lot, but the problem is that when we stopped something it's extremely difficult to get started again. Before, when I was running it was very easy to go and run, but today in the morning I couldn't convince myself to go and run. I was fighting with my thoughts, you know all those voices that are coming all together in the same time? And finally I put on my runners and went for jogging. And you know what? I felt horrible and wanted to come back home because I couldn't find a nice place where can I run.
There's a tiny green area close to our house, I just ran there in a circle about 20 minutes, it was so boring... and I just opened Google Map and started searching for some nice places where I can run. I am so happy that I found a better place, I found a very long, beautiful running/cycle route and this route is very close to where I live. I am sure that this running route will keep me motivated to go and run again and again. I also took pictures to share here and show you, my lovelies, where I will run and how beautiful this route is. Today I ran my second 10k and I am very proud of me because I can consider myself a 10k runner :) 
This running route takes me somewhere hehehe
Blackberries for you my friends :)
Happiness is picking blackberries on a sunny summer day, just like this Saturday :)
It's so relaxing here...
Smiley me hehehe
I love bridges 

For me running it's like therapy. When I run I feel happy, healthy... and what I really love about running is that I can see London in a different way. Do you love running? What do you love most about running?

Keep yourself happy and Enjoy Your Running Route!
Much love
Liuba G

  6. Ai inceput cu intrebari care sunt mereu in capul nostru(despre renuntare si greutatea reinceputului) si ai terminat atat de optimist, asa, cum esti tu!
    Eu nu alerg, conditia mea fizica este sub orice critica, deci te invidiez la modul bun, astazi. Succes si sa nu renunti. Bine ai facut ca ai cautat un loc atat de frumos. Dar de ce te-ai mutat de doua ori? Cred ca sunt cam indiscreta, nu raspunde daca nu vrei, sorry :)

    1. Draga Mihaela, ma bucur mult ca ai citit textul in full :)
      Nu o sa renunt ca imi place, ma relaxeaza...
      Ohh mutarea este o "long story" :)) Nu am putut sa stam acolo, fiindca nu stim din ce cauza a trebuit sa eliberam casa, au argumentat ca ceva nu e in regula si ca in 8 saptamani ne putem intoarce dupa ce repara nu stiu ce acolo... Ohhh doar au creat probleme oamenilor, daca intru in detalii nu imi ajunge o postare sa povestesc totul :))

      Pupici si o saptamana frumoasa voua! Liuba x

  17. Liuba, 10 km, jos palaria... ai rezistenta nu gluma! Eu doar pentru 1 - 1 si jumatate si stiu ca asta se formeaza in timp, dar totodata stiu ca si pana sa-mi descopar problema la coloana tot nu aveam rezistenta. Sa alerg iarasi dupa atatia ani e ok pentru mine.
    Perseverenta si iarasi perseverenta, trebuie sa lucrez si eu la asta!
    Faina zona de alergat, asa ti-e mai mare dragul! pupicei
