It’s amazing that in running how a person’s stamina can improve in such short term. I remember my first run, I hardly could jog through the 8 * 1 minute sets. I kept checking my watch that how an earth could 60 seconds last an eternity.

However, my fears (knee problems?, am I too heavy to run?) are still on the surface but despite all of this I always look forward to the running days. I found a great training for those who haven’t run in a long time and it seems to cooperate with my annoying (I’d love to believe unnecessary) fears. I thought I’d share in case somebody’s interested (you can also follow my progress):


On the other hand I am very lucky because in Budapest I live on the bank side Danube and nearby there’s a gorgeous running place. It’s not that crowded, less smog because there are no traffic-heavy roads and streets (only an urban train). The view is so lovely I can never get bored of it. 3198088327_dd42c02b70_b


However, I wonder what is going to happen in the next few weeks. We’ve been lucky with the weather so far, amazing indian summer days, lovely sunshine. But chilly days are coming soon...

I'm so jealous! "The Beautiful Blue Danube" was one of the first songs I learned to play on the piano. Budapest is beautiful. I've never been but want to one day. Don't be surprised if I show up on your doorstep. I watched House Hunters International when they were in Budapest. Before they even said where it was, I recognized the architecture. Beautiful.

I'm thinking about starting the C25K program. I know I can't "run", but modification is the key. I know a lot of bloggers who have done this with great results.
