This is a big success for me. I managed to run HALF MARATHON today! This was my first time so I didn’t want to push too much. A experienced a small crisis. It happened around the 15th km. And later I had a constant, increasing pain in my left foot, so I slowed down a bit. But I finished it! My time: 2 h:20 min: 04 s.

I was running and my son was riding a bike – he was a big support for me. He gave me some isotonic drinks, and took photos, too.

I decided to run a bit more today. About 12 km. Part of my route was on a frozen lake. I met some guys catching fish on ice. Nice…

Last Day of 2012 in the forest

Last Day of 2012 in the forest

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

Autumn RoadThis was an amazing weekend in Poland. I decided to ride a bike because the weather was simply awesome. We usually have snow, or at least heavy rain in late October in Poland, but this weekend was unusual. About 20 degrees C all the time an no clouds! I had three major trainings, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I managed to cover the distance over 90 km! That was great!

Simply amazing weather!

River Mill

During my last bike trip (over 52 km) I found a small building on the river Warta. It appeared to be an old river mill. I really like taking photos of the old building used for technical purposes. This one was really nice.

So after two weeks I had some time to take part in the 25th Disquiet Junto project. It’s very hot outside so I decided to describe this situation with my music. First you hear the sounds which wake us up. Than there is the whole day of fight between hot, dense soundscapes, and cool guitar drinks somewhere in the background. The day ends when the we are tired, and can only reach for a glass of cold drink. Than we have to calm down and go to bed.

I used the “call pop” track by Westy Reflector.
I couldn’t let Westy Reflector down :-) If fact when I listened to his original “call pop” track I thought if would be nice to listen to some house version, but I am not very good at composing house music. I decided to go into a bit more experimental direction. Hope you like it!

This time the trip wasn’t very long. 21 km only. But I managed to take a nice picture of the man fishing alone…

Fishing Alone

This time it was 35.67 km with an average speed of 20.9 km/h and the top speed of 44.8 km/h. There was one place I simply couldn’t ride because of the sand and rocks. But the rest of the journey was quite nice. I started in the sun and ended in the rain (as usual). There was one place where I could see the nice ruins of the castle.

Castle in Olsztyn

Yesterday the trip wasn’t too long, only 22,3 km with an average speed of 22,3 km/h. But I passed a nice old water mill, which is no longer used. Still, it’s situated in a nice and picturesque surrounding. Check it out.
