Since Christmas eve, I was suffering from pneumonia and bladder inflammation. I had to stay at home, take antibiotics, cure myself and couldn’t do any physical activity for almost three weeks. Moreover, I bought myself new awesome trail running shoes two days before Christmas to be able to run in winter. The whole three weeks I was going around them and couldn’t wait to go for a run again.

Finally, on Wednesday, January 13 I did my first workout this year, yay! As there was terrible weather outside and I didn’t want to test my immunity, I decided to go to the gym. I ran 5 kilometers in 33 minutes, which surprised me, I thought it was gonna be worse. Then I did some TRX, core training and long stretching. In the end, I went to the sauna for 15 minutes. It was just awesome!

On Saturday, I finally did my first outdoor run. In my new shoes! Such an indescribable feeling! I went with my friend, who helps me to train. This time he came up with pyramid intervals. Haha! It was about 5 centimeters of snow, still snowing and temperature around zero. The training was hell, I thought I was gonna die but I was glad to actually try something different. We ended the training with a slow run to the place where we started and in the end, it was 8.6 kilometers in 1h 9mins.  When I came
home, I did some abs exercise and push-ups and took well deserved very long and very hot bath. Such a well deserved pleasure 😀
