This Sunday you can combine your training with a good cause. Go to run4haiti and register. Then on Sunday run anywhere, any distance in any time you like or can manage. Afterwards go to Aktion Deutschland Hilft e.V. and donate one Euro for every kilometer you have run. If you don't trust the website, just always just run without registering and donate to a charity of your choice afterwards.

New favourite places

Filou thinks even scratching posts need a hug from time to time:

Paulchen is a fan of consumer electronics:

Run, Forest, run

Lots of work last week meant little time for training. I didn't eat properly and skipped lunch a couple of days. Unsurprisingly, I dind't fell like doing much, when I came home in the evenings. So it added up to only 3.5 hours of running and 1 hour Pilates. Pilates counts double, because it is personal training and if you are alone, you are observed by the trainer every single second. She has eagle eyes and sees every minimal attempt to cheat.

But it's a new week and a new training schedule. The programme has intensified with faster intervalls and longer runs. So it's "run, Forest, run".

Now I am off to watch Blackjack on BBC Entertainment. That Ausstralian accent is quite sexy.

Mad cat?

The year has started well... not. One of the cats has gone mad. I blame it on the new year's fireworks. Since yesterday morning Paulchen has been sitting in the hall, staring up the wall and howling like a wolf. Either he is seeing things I cannot see or he is has gone mad. I am quite sure he is not ill or in pain, so I have decided to ignore him. If I pay too much attention, he may just feel encouraged to continue, right? It got a little better during the day. He takes breaks from howling to eat and sleep. Fingers crossed he will get bored with it completely, soon. Otherwise I will be going mad.
