I'm trail bound today... 🏃‍♂️🌞

It's fun out here keeping on without a goal in mind since I can train whatever I feel like. It's also harder to motivate myself without a training schedule. It's raining today and I'm like, weeeell, I don't really need to. 😂
.

But I do, and I will! I think. But I don't really need to... 😂😂😂

If you want to change something you must first be aware of what you want to change. That's the first step. 👊
.

For example, if you don't recognise each time you bite your nails, you can't stop and make a different choice. If you want to change a bad habit, just start with recognising each time you do it. Then when you're aware you're doing it, make a change to something else... 😀🌞

Everyday I'm cycling! I went over the little bump the other week. All of a sudden I felt that my legs started to cone around again and all of a sudden I'm averaging almost 2km/h faster each ride. Consistency is key. Keep on and you'll eventually get better. 👊😀

Now, I'm no where near my old "cycling self" but it's nice feeling the difference. 🔥

"Karma is experience, and experience creates memory, and memory creates imagination and desire, and desire creates karma again. If I buy a cup of coffee, that's karma. I now have that memory that might give me the potential desire for having cappuccino, and I walk into Starbucks, and there's karma all over again." - Deepak Chopra 🙏

Running by this house in Crete was always a treat. It's like a small super Mexican hacienda. But in Greece! 😀

The weather has eased off a little here but I still want to get the running done in the morning due to the heat. Today I'm going in for a 12k tempo run trying to feel my form.

Last year I did lots of these before Ålands marathon but this year I haven't had the need so it's going to be interesting to see how it feels.

Yesterday I was back at this little island swimming. It was such a pleasure. 1.5k and stepping out of the water early morning with the sun just blazing down at me. 😀
.
.
Then I ran intervals before my first meeting. 👊

I had coffee with a good friend of mine yesterday. Well, a little too much coffee so I had trouble falling asleep later on. 😂☕

We discussed the importance in meditation to let the session lead you to where it's going and not trying to steer it in a certain direction. Trust the process and just be in the moment. Which also is important in relationships. He met a new girl a few months back and this time around he sits in the relationship just being in the moment. 💚 Usually, he has had an idea of what he wants and was comparing the development of the relationship towards the pre conceived idea. Not successful!

The danger of trying to fit a relationship into a mould is that you're not letting the relationship become what it could be. Trust the process! If it's supposed to be it will be if it's not it won't. Just be in the moment when you meet, it's always much more appreciated when someone's actually there when you hang out. 😀

After all, if you're not treating a one year old after what you hope happens after high school, why would you a relationship in it's infancy? 👊🌞

There's always more to do. I'm trying to get a little of my aerobic endurance back now. Doing runs in my aerobic zone with my newly learned running technique. It's still kind of fast compared to what I'm used to. Without stretching it I'm under a 5:30 pace when I go sub 140 HR. But my HR is rising a little to fast in the end, or maybe it's me not holding back anymore. 🤨😂
.

Anyhow, today it's recovery with some yoga and stretching. 👊

Have a great Monday folks!

This sourdough crust creation from @wickedhealthy looks fantastic. 🌞🔥😀

I decided to just get a quick 8k run in yesterday. My technique focus stands and it's getting better and better. Last k I let the free speed in and just tried to hold the technique properly. There are some aspects of the running technique that are easier to perform at a higher speed. 😀

Today it's a short swim and then we'll see what's cooking! But first some shroom coffee and meditation. 👊😜

"Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past to you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure" - Stephen King 🙏👊
