4PM thunder storm

I was lucky today, 4PM thunder storm was a bit late today and is thundering away  right now (6:30PM). I can’t go to the store to get food, cause it looks like it’s going to rain heavily soon. But who cares, The Biggest loser season 10 is on and I have some crispbread and cold-smoked salmon 🙂 And what it comes to working out today, I cycled to work and back today. Over 201 kilometers cycled this year, nice 🙂

A little bit of cycling

Back in business, I’m not gonna let a little allergy win. Couple of hours of cycling it was today. It’s getting really really green here, what a change to that dull spring. I really don’t like spring that much. It’s all gray, brown and somewhat dirty and dusty. This green thing, this I like:

Nice! How has your week started?

Struck down by birch

I’m not allergic to anything. Or at least so I thought. But it seems that I’m learning new things nowadays. I’m allergic to birch pollen, which sucks. It means my nose is running, I’m sneezing all the time and my throat is sore. Since the antihistamin drugs are working a bit, it’s clear that this is allergy and not just a little cold.

This is so annoying. I’m not sick, so I could go and exercise. But I get out of breath really quickly so it’s pretty much impossible to do anything I want to. Like gym or running. I did cycle to work and back on Monday which meant about 30k and went skating yesterday. But that’s it. I’m going to try biking again tomorrow, let’s just hope I don’t roll over and die 😀

Looking for the spring

Didn’t find it though. It’s hidden beneath all the snow… Apparently in Helsinki you can find snow from 2010. Vintage-snow, who wants it?

I did a little biking tour today. Since is a day off from work (yay, thanks Easter!) I had plenty of time to do what ever I want. I started the day by having brunch with my dear friends. Foooooood and good laughs, nice way to start a long weekend.

Then I hopped on my bike, put on my daft helmet and went for a little 24k ride. It was a bit cold and a bit wet and a bit icy, but if one has a vivid imagination one is able to see that spring is just around the corner. Not yet here though.

Choose your sport: swimming, skiing, running or ice-fishing. We have it all at the lake 😀

Happy Easter to all of you!

Added bonus: ice cycling

I started the cycling season today, as I went to skating by bike. My boyfriend was kind enough to check the tires and that stuff, so I didn’t have to worry about them. The most exciting part of the thing was the icy roads.

“No maintenance during winter” Oh really?

But I’m still alive! And didn’t fall. Tomorrow, more biking and some helmet shopping. Why oh why are all bicycle helmets so damn ugly?

Rest of this night is reserved for the most promising diet show for a long time. The name translate as “My darling, you have become fat”. The idea is that couples compete for 10000€ prize, which they get if the fat one manages to shed 15kg in 7 weeks. The twist is that the normal weight partner is the personal trainer for the fat one. I mean come on 😀 Married couples and one is constantly nagging at the fatty 😀 I’m not sure which is more fun, watching the nagging or waiting when the poor one who is doing all the work is going to explode… These “loose weight on TV” shows are just constant source of fun. In this first episode, the couple goes to the local market, and the guy instructs the sales persons that they are not allowed to sell any candies or that kinda stuff to the girl. Great tv!
