I did it. I ran my first competitive 10km run in Würzburg, the Residence Run, on Sunday with my friend Isa. It was hard because it was hot but I did it. And quite well I’d say! It took me 56 minutes and 52 seconds, less than an hour to run 10.000 meters and I am really, really proud of me.

The boyfriend took some photos but didn’t get many of the run itself because it was so crowded. The weather was pretty amazing so a lot of people came to watch.

Enjoying a banana protein shake and a whole wheat bread with almond butter and banana two hours before the run. An amazing protein booster! The right nutrition is extremely important when doing sports.

Beautiful Würzburg Residence. The latest 3 Musketeers film (the one with the flying ships that really wasn’t that good) was shot here and it is most definitely one of the most magnificent places in this city.

Happy, proud and exhausted after we did it. First things first: rehydrate!

Happy after the beautiful day.

Thank you, Isa and Chris for the day and sticking with me throughout it. Even though it was tough and I suffered and had to fight through it I did it. And I will do it again. Only that time I will be better, faster and even prouder!

MOVE

Spoiler: the message of this post is: move, guys. Doing sports is amazing and you’ll never feel better. A parol.

I’ve done quite some sports all my life. But never really, you know? Not as much as I do now. In January this year, when my final pair of trousers bursted because I’ve gotten pretty fat the previous few months, I decided that it’s time to change something. That’s when I started the Freeletics Cardio Coach. I’ll do a whole post on Freeletics in three weeks because that’s when I hill have finished the Coach. Just so much: it opened my eyes for movement and nutrition and I’ve never felt as good and healthy as I do now.

Eating clean is extremely important and even though it’s really hard sometimes (I’m a lover of everything sweet and, you should know) it pays off! Going on the sports ground five to six times a week has become an addiction and I already feel bad when I don’t move one day. Working in a hospital I walk around a lot but being active like that is a completely different thing and I just need to tell you:
DO SPORTS! BE ACTIVE! BE MOTIVATED! You’ll feel so good.

This is my favorite outfit for working out. Billabong top (could wear it all the time), H&M sports bra and leggings, Nike Free 5.0 sneakers (you’ll feel like you aren’t wearing any shoes at all – like flying). This is after a Freeletics workout so please excuse me looking a bit tired.

I started a little workout calendar where I plan the workouts of the following week. This week’s a bit different from most because I got two new tattoos this week and had to rest a bit.

Most of the time I use the Freeletics App which makes it all super easy.

The BEST inspiration for fitness and eating clean and healthy is Pinterest. I have an extra board for these things and just love browsing around (it’s mostly recipes, to be honest. I love food.). I’m already planning on taking Yoga classes when I’m done with the Freeletics Coach as a nice complement to the Freeletics workouts. MOVE, PEOPLE!
