Hello everyone :ss:

I'm awfully sorry for disappearing all of a sudden last October. I gradually noticed that I was spending way too much time on my computer and phone. Keeping up with everyone's logs and writing my own was turning into a huge time sink. So, although I was really enjoying it a lot, I stopped looking at the website quite abruptly.

However I really started to miss the Darebee community! I am now trying to find new ways of using the site. To exercise more, browse the internet less... or something like that. Currently I plan to update my log once a week. I certainly will be reading your updates as well, just maybe not quite as frequently. We'll see how it goes...

I also noticed the comeback of the Darebeets recipes, have already tried a few of them. I really can't stress enough how much I like Darebee. Not just all the great content, but also the feeling, tone, philosophy, or whatever you'd like to call it. I'm just still exploring what is the best way for me to integrate it into my life.

Meanwhile, I have been working out, though not as consistently as I should have. Currently I am aiming to run three times a week (official 5K race in March!), follow the Hybrid Calisthenics routine, and do the Exercise of the Day every day, mostly for building consistency and for having an element of surprise on a daily basis. Sometimes, instead of the official EotD, I pick an exercise from the Fit Tap, because I cannot jump around too much on days when I am working out indoors, and therefore avoid certain exercises.

So, for starters, here's what I did this past week:


Day 1: 15-1-2024

Day 2: 16-1-2024

Day 3: 17-1-2024

Day 4: 18-1-2024
  • Running: 45 min. run (unfortunately, Zombies, Run! malfunctioned)
  • EotD: 20 Shrimp Squats
  • Hybrid Calisthenics

Day 5: 19-1-2024

Day 6: 20-1-2024

Day 7: 21-1-2024

I hope you are all doing well. It's great to be back. Let's get to work!

I can really tell that when my days are busy, the workouts suffer from it. Especially during the first part of this week, I often only did the Exercise of the Day, which is too little really. The past few days were better, and the coming week should also be a little bit more active.

Coming Sunday, I'll be running a 5K race, and I am contemplating signing up for a 10K race in June, so that I'll have a new goal.

Have a nice Sunday everyone!

This past week, working out has been going quite well. I've been able to make some time for both indoor and outdoor workouts,

Yesterday I participated in an organized 5K race. It was a lot of fun and it went quite well. I ran as fast as I could and managed a new 5K PB of 31.26!

:completed: :celebrate:

A little over a year ago this distance took me more than 38 minutes, so I'm quite happy. :ss:

Next challenge: try and run a 10K race on June 2nd...

Have a good week everyone!
