it’s really hard to convince my parents that a vegan diet won’t affect me, i really want to become a vegetarian and stop eating animals, now only because of the ethical meaning of it but because i feel very bad after eating meat, it’s harmful to my body, and i don’t want it anymore :(

conclusions on reflektor:
it’s good, there some songs that could’ve been better, and it’s different than i expected, i thought it was being a more reflektor alike but it is not, and the first cd is in my opinion way better, but this is the first listen, i guest as i dig deeper, i’ll find it more exciting, but at the moment i consider it just good
second time of the year i’m injured, that means, thankfully, i’m not new to this feeling, and this sort of made me not crumble, maybe i don’t feel bad because it wasn’t caused by the training volume or so, but i’m glad i feel really relaxed, maybe. that’s because this is the first week i haven’t done a thing in a little bit more than a year…anyway, i’m still looking forward canyon’s challenge, there’s a slight chance so i’ll just stay positive and do what’s gotta be done, nothing, and that’s worked, and if this continues this way, i’m so doing it, anyway, if at any moment, my knee isn’t up to it, i’m not risking it.
it’s known that you learn from your mistakes, so i now have to respect my body, i’ve been putting it into big stuff in this first year of running and it’s responded as it should, so if i don’t wanna have another injury, and now caused by me and not by a bike fall, i should stick to what my body tells me, it’s wise so i should hear it.
so here are somethings i’ve learned and now I AM GOING TO DO (in capitals because they seem harder):
- Respect my body: i haven’t done that well, i mean, i’m still new to the sport, i’m thankful that i’ve been able to run 2 half-marathons and many long runs in training, but being real, i need to calm down and re-think of my preparation or things like that, i don’t know, but when i prepare for something i wanna do well, i usually don’t do the tapering and end up overtrained and tired, and with aches, so i must follow this as i hit the roads again.
- Work on my core: THIS IS A RUNNERS MUST!!, so i’m missing an important part right here, i’ve done it, i just need to do it properly and consistently.
- Not compare myself with elite runners or local runners: I mean, i’m not them, so this point is clear, what works for them might not work for me, and i’ve proved that.
- Not to fear of recovery runs: i wouldn’t do any recovery run because of the fear of feeling they didn’t work and would slow me down, i can be dumb at times.
- Sleep: zzZZzz, sleeping leads you to efficiency and energy, so in order to train better, i shall sleep better.
this is new to the blog, but i need to keep focus, and relax, just let thoughts out, it’s good for the mind, and, isn’t that the main purpose of a blog?, so here’s it.
