About Running

January 29, 2017

Hey guys!

It’s been a while, and as much as I wanted to share a recipe, truth be told I haven’t really got the time to cook lately… my life is filled with too many flights, meetings, and projects but I am extremely thankful for being engaged and in a state of flow.

Now moving on to running … As you might know, I am not the best runner, but it’s an activity that truly speaks to my heart and goes hand in hand with who I am… I remember being 17, fresh out of high school and running for the mindfulness of it, and how my friends would make fun of me (some of them still do)… but that’s okay.

I want to start off by saying I do NOT run for competitions. A couple of years back, when running started to be a thing, I struggled with this idea of running for the timing, and not for the thrill.  There was a time where I was obsessed with minutes. Having to do 5:20, 5:00, 4:30, having to get my half-marathon time down, etc… I’d not only obsess over my performance but also about other people’s performances. I forgot why I began to run, and eventually, I stopped having fun.

There was a time where I was obsessed with minutes. Having to do 5:20min/km, 5:00, 4:30, get my half-marathon time down, etc… I’d obsess over my performance but mostly over other people’s performances. I forgot why I run, and I stopped having fun.

When I finally sat to think and understand the way I was feeling I realized that everything that gives us joy and fulfillment in life has to be done and pursued with understanding and consideration. Because I was so focused with the “responsibilities” I had towards running, I stopped having fun.

Nowadays, I focus on running “from myself to myself” – meaning I’ll run at my own pace, I’ll eat what my body asks me to, and off the door I go.

And that’s all for today! I shall leave you now with a quick information-chart I made, with some notes I found on the “Runners Magazine” about nutrition and protein for those of you who also like to run:

 

All the love,

Eu lembro-me de correr quando tinha uns bons 17 anos, assim acabadinha de sair do secundário, e de como os meus amigos gozavam com isto da corrida… já na altura eu usava a corrida para procurar uma maior paz de espirito, mesmo ainda que sem saber.

Quero começar por deixar claro que eu NÃO corro para competições. Há uns anos atrás batia com a cabeça nas paredes, quando a corrida começou a ser moda, com esta ideia de que se corres tens de ser rápido, e tens de ser o melhor, e tens de competir. A um ponto que já não me divertia nas corridas, já não considerava a corrida um tempo de paz, um tempo para mim, mas mais como uma obrigação.

Quando comecei a assimilar estes pensamentos, percebi que tudo o que nos dá gozo na vida tem de ser feito com calma e respeito. O que quero dizer, é que eu, ao pensar demasiado nas “responsabilidades” que tinha com a corrida, deixei de me divertir.

Portanto, a partir dessa altura, comecei a correr “de mim para mim” – ou seja, corro ao meu ritmo, nutro o meu corpo consoante aquilo que sinto, calço os tenis, e vamos a isto.

Deixo-vos agora, com alguma informação sobre nutrição para quem gosta de correr, que recolhi de algumas revistas “Runners World” que tenho cá por casa:

 

 

Tudo de bom,
