Wow, what a weird week! I am emotionally, mentally and physically drained! Thankfully tomorrow is a rest day!

Not that I will have time to rest… I got a massive university assignment (a business plan for a new music enterprise) that I have to hand in on Monday at 3pm and I still have to finish it! 6500 words in total and it will be 70% of my grade for this semesters module. But I am trying not to think about it in those ‘harsh’ terms and just get the work done in time.

I feel like Ive gone slightly mad these past 8 days (and I mean more than usual!). It has been a constant struggle with my mind playing tricks on me and Ive been bouncing between being so incredibly happy to just crying my eyes out.

Work is crazy busy at the moment, and university too. Plus a million other things on my mind and I haven’t been able to sleep properly either *sigh*

This probably doesn’t make a lot of sense. Sorry!

I’m too emotional, I blame the running and no fags policy. I mean, damn, all I have to do is just LOOK AT the name @rundemcrew in my twitter feed and my eyes fill up with tears.

There are so many inspiring people I want to talk about and introduce you to here on the blog!

Some of them I don’t even know that well but they have already made my life better, and once I am done with all the uni stuff I will sit down and tell you all about how amazing these people are *refuses to start crying*.

But for now, I am going to get some well needed sleep, then do the last push on this MA assignment.

Sweet dreams!

Hello my friends!

Happy 2012 – I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Years Eve! Sorry for the silence and lack of updates but it all became too hectic before Christmas and when I got home to Sweden I decided to take a step back and have as much “internet & computer free” time as possible.

But now I am back in full force and ready to rock 2012!

So what’s on the agenda? Well…

  1. I’ve quit smoking. Yeah you heard me! Today is my 4th day without a cigarette and I feel like punching myself in the face. But! Apparently those little death sticks are bad for you. They make you smell horrible, they are bad for your health, they will make you look ugly not cool, and somebody told me that they can even give you cancer. So here I am, trying not to think about how amazing they are with coffee, after some food, with a nice glass of wine and so on.
  2. I am running a goddamn half marathon in Berlin on the 1st of April. Today I ran my first ever 10K with the fantastic Rachel. We did it in 71 minutes without stopping. I wanted to give up after 2 miles, apparently so did she, but we set us the challenge without really believing we would be able to go through with it and we did it. Below is my training schedule for the next 12 weeks. It is pretty insane. I am not looking forward to getting up at stupid o’clock so I can run at 7am twice a week and then going on these hardcore bootcamp sessions at 8am twice a week. But hey, a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do and I am determined to kick ass!

  3. And then there’s some other work related stuff going on, and music stuff, and let’s not forget this frickin MA that I am doing. It seems like it is all going down in 2012. I guess what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger… Will expand on the work and music related things when I am allowed to I promise.

I guess that’s about it for now. But stay tuned because that list is going to get a whole lotta bigger when I am allowed to open my mouth and start talking about all the other exciting stuff!

Hello my friends!

Trying to look & feel badass before my first ever attempt to run 4 miles ON MY OWN! Im scared and my thighs hurt like crazy, but fingers crossed I can do more than a mile – that’s all I managed to do a week ago today on my own… Let’s go!


So I only managed to do 3 miles in 40 minutes. Not very happy with myself but hey, at least I went out and tried my best. Did the run in Crystal Palace park, my first ever time there so wasn’t quite sure what to expect! It was pretty damn hilly on some places and my thighs started aching as soon as I started running. Not ideal and during the first mile I really considered giving up. But then I started to imagine my team bangs girls cheering me on in my head and just as I hit the 2nd mile I came to this beautiful open space with pebbles on the ground, massive archers that apparently are remains from the old palace, green grass on both sides of the massive path and the sun shining straight at me. Luckily this amazing remix of a  Wiley song came on and I just felt invincible!

I ran up the hill, down the hill, round the corners and just as I hit 3 miles my phone rang and fucked up the mental state I had worked up in my head to be able to carry on running for another mile despite my legs feeling like they were gonna collapse underneath me. I won’t lie, I felt like punching the person who had called me in the face, but then calmed down and decided to head home since it was getting a bit darker.

I guess 3 miles on my own isn’t too bad… Slightly enjoyed I didn’t do 4 but tomorrow is a new day and if my legs don’t kill me I will probably give it another go!
