I got my new running shoes delivered by UPS on Friday afternoon, right when I came back from run #2.
I was jogging towards my home, came out of the woods and saw the big brown truck in my street. I then saw the UPS driver with a package before the house and squealed with glee.
I speeded up, right towards him and called out my last name. He said “yes” and I squealed with glee once more. I love coincidences like this – perfect timing! (A lot of sentences starting with “I” in this passage)
I grabbed the package, ran upstairs to our apartment and unpacked my new running shoes. So nice and pink and cheaper than all the others of the Lunarglide 5 series.
I had to try them the next day so I ran my first 7,5km
The weather was lovely, the forest was filled with life – I met more people (and dogs) yesterday than any other time. Normally I never meet anybody.
I have planned a 10km round which I plan to run maybe in two to four weeks. My big goal – to run 10km wihout falling over half dead. And that goal is so close. I don’t care about the time, I’m not a runner, I run about 3-5 times a YEAR. I ran 3 times a week just last week because this year I want to improve my running. And – running in the forest over roots, through gravel and over grass with birds singing is sooo relaxing.
So here’s my 10km plan
I hope I’ll remember it, all the zig-zags… (plan made with www.komoot.de)

Round 1: Pace = 6:24
Round 2: Pace = 6:21
Round 3: Pace = 6:33
Round 4: Pace = 6:47
Round 5: Pace = 6:44
5 km in 32 minutes. Ok for the first I guess. My head was bright red but it was good, the weather is amazing at the moment, I love it and I hope it stays nice and warm and springy…

I know, March isn’t over yet but I won’t finish a book I’ll start reading today by tomorrow, so here are the books I read in March 2014.
I must say, I really enjoy the Thrillers by Sebastian Fitzek. His chapters are very short, which I enjoy, yet it tends to go like “the next chapter is short, just one more chapter…”
All the others are chick-lits and I thought “can you keep a secret” by Sophie Kinsella was very amusing. I started another book by her just today 🙂
Yesterday I made my first mountainbike tour this season, a short tour with my dad and it was very nice. I’m a little out of MTB-shape but I hope I’ll be ok after I made three or four tours.

Amazing, over 20°C in March – that has never happened before. It’s Saturday today, I enjoyed the day yesterday with my bike and a stop at the Biergarten and Ice Cream Parlor and now I’m sitting on the couch reading and waiting for the rain (and snow?!?!) to come back again. Can’t wait till Spring is officially here.

Hm, so ok, when I look in the mirror and look at my stomach I can see a two-pack, or let’s say, a four-pack. After I saw my abs today I felt good, so I packed my sports stuff, grabbed my bike and drove to the gym to do a little more for my abs.

At the gym, I was highly motivated to train my stomach. I have three exercises in my trainins-plan but today I wanted more.
So, I tried this new “machine”. The leg-lift.
I started out with my first ten repetitions. I didn’t think it was easy, seeing you need strenth in your arms as well.
I then made my second round and I thought that this all feels weird. It felt a little weird in my, let’s say, lower woman body part… and with weird I mean good.
I made a longer pause this time to let the weird feeling pass and then I started my third and last round of ten repetitions – but, I had to quit at number 7. I couldn’t go on because I thought I might get a freaking orgasm from lifting my legs to train my belly!! How weird is that?! I wonder if that’s a known phenomenon or what. Oh gee! I had to smirk but I thought I better not continue with this exercise.
I wonder if I’m the only who REALLY enjoys this machine or if other girls have experienced the same. I guess I’ll never know because I will not run around my gym asking others if they have a near-orgasm-experience on the leg-lift, as well!?

I’ve read seven books in February. Lucky there was only one book I didn’t really like.
I never read Nora Robers before but I can imagine she’s a total romantic-writing author. I already have a couple more books written by her on my wishlist. At the moment I’m reading “Can you keep a secret” by Sophie Kinsella. I wonder if I like it better than “The wedding girl” by her as Madeleine Wickham, which I thought was quite terrible.
