Enjoy the little things in life.

"And the last point, when I set off on my journey I was really focussed on reliability as most people wisely have a fear of breaking down in the middle of nowhere. After a couple of continents and inevitable small issues on all the bikes I rode and all the bikes that rode with us, I became much less fearful of potentially breaking down. They seemed to happen to everyone, no matter what people rode and most times were pretty easily fixed. Initially we are looking for a bike to cover up all our fears and inadequacies, usually the bike doesn't get any better we just overcome our fears, become a little better mechanics and learn to rely on ourselves more."

The plan: 

This week was bit better than the last one. I've moved my runs to 4:00am asnd have to say I find them much more enjoyable now.
Also, I've checked the distance I've been running and it turns out I've been doing 2.5 mile runs for 2 weeks now, which is a pleasant surprise.
Now it's time to start pushing that bit higher and higher. 

Not gonna lie, I never thought I'd be looking forward waking up early to run.

P.S Have a cool EDM mix for your listening pleasure.

The plan: 

This was a disappointing week. All 3 days I was unable to meet my targets, ending up with sub 20 minute runs. 
I need to sort my shit out, because I don't believe I'll be able to live down failing myself for the second time like this.

The plan: 

Did my runs last week, and did a bit better on the long one than before.
I must say that I'm genuinely looking forward to the "proper" sessions I'll be doing this week.
If I can do 30 minute run (as opposed to a carefully paced jog as I do now), I'll be damn impressed and will most
likely end up preaching that shit for a while :P

I dun goofed.
Last week I did 5/3/5/3/5 routine for three days straight without realising I'm supposed to change it up :doh:

Anyway, I did follow the proper plan every day and have to report that my legs suck donkey balls.
I couldn't finish the 21 minute run non stop and my legs just gave out at 14-15 min mark.
I tried to start again, but it felt like starting an engine with a dead battery. I tried, but ultimately failed.
Oh well, we'll see what happens next week I guess.

On the plus side I've cleaned the house, preopped the bikes for the next week and booked the remaining jobs needed for the Tenere for my April 2015 trip. Luckily, Mongolia decided to be a bro and lifted the visa requirement all the way until December 2015 :D
(That's one less paperwork to worry about :dummy:)

I'll respond to your comment later as always (you always make good ones) but right I'm busy so I'll just click 'watch' (I can't believe I just realized now that I did not do that :blush:).
