Monday Motivation #5

Hi Crew, after a week of ups and downs health wise I am finally back to normal. I’m over the flu and started with Lacrosse practice on Friday two days later than I wanted to. I felt like an absolute rookie again because I had no endurance whatsoever left and couldn’t catch a ball for the life of me because my new stringing is not yet broken in. It was fun nonetheless and I was really glad to be out on the field again. Sunday I decide against the long run and actually did my 1k Intervalls which I didn’t do on Thursday plus one more – faster than I expected them to be.

As for next week I am actually planning a though one because I decided against the Swim and Run in Darmstadt so I can go to the first Artistic Cycling competition of the kids on Sunday. I couldn’t swim for the last couple of weeks due to my hand injury and the change from indoor swimming pool to outdoor running just 30mins apart wouldn’t be the best idea for my lounge anyway.

So here is my week:

Calendar Week 4: 22nd January – 28th January

Focus: Run/Bike – Endurance

If you have any questions or want to know more details as always feel free to ask in the comments or contact me. Let me know what you are doing this week and if you ever had to cancel a competition.

Be good, do good, receive good.

Cheers 🙂 SaMy

Hey Crew, how are you all doing? I’ve been sick for the entirety of last week and therefore couldn’t do anything. I’m getting a bit better now so I’ll start with a slower week and increase the exposure throughout, depending on my general feeling and condition.

I hope you all have a better week and stay healthy. Remember to take a break when your body needs it and don’t power through even though you are ill. You will get the opposite effect and possibly harm your body. So be considerate and as always – be good, do good, receive good.

Cheers, SaMy

New Years Resolutions 2018

Good afternoon! It is the second day of the New Year and I have spend some time setting some goals and some resolutions for myself. I tried to reflect on what I achieved the past year and set reasonable targets so I will actually be able to accomplish them. I have made a Video on my YouTube Channel as well where I talk about all of these 18 points in detail. So if you want to know more about them go head over to youtube where I explain them further.

So here are the things I will try to accomplish in 2018:

  1. read 40 books2
  2. visit 3 new countries
  3. do a writing holiday without the phone for a week
  4. finish the current book project & send it out to publishers
  5. make 150 videos on both YouTube channels
  6. get a grip at University/get good grades and be the best I can be
  7. (finally) get my drivers licence
  8. get 4 of the tattoos I have planned the past 2 years
  9. get in better shape physically and mentally
  10. run a half marathon
  11. finish my first Olympic Distance
  12. save money for traveling
  13. make more music
  14. be more efficient and reliable
  15. live more sustainable
  16. no social media/phone in bed
  17. be myself
  18. spend more time with my family

So those are my goals. Not too ambitious (except one or two maybe) and focused a lot on my sports and career. But I think I have done a good job this year evaluating where I am right now and where I want to go this year.

Let me know what you think about these resolutions and what your own plans and goals for 2018 are. Don’t forget to be good, do good and receive good.

Cheers, SaMy

Happy New Year Guys! I hope you are all ready for some workouts this year. The big gluttony is over and we are finally back to status quo which means getting the pends and kilos rolling to be ready for this coming season.

Calendar Week 1: 1st January – 7th January

Focus: Run

Screen Shot 2018-01-01 at 1.17.23 PMBecause I’m going skiing on either Wednesday or Friday (depending on weather) I planned my week so that I can easily switch the running from Wednesday to Friday if needed without losing the desired effect.

You may also have noticed that I don’t have any Swim Sessions planned which will unfortunately stay that way until mid-February. I hurt my left hand when I slipped on a mixture of wet gras and leaves last week and unfortunatley hurt my ligament on the inside of my wrist. So no swimming for me for a while.

Parkour in the Lacrosse section (sry for the spelling mistake by the way) means nothing else than speed and footwork combined with stick skills.

As always this schedule will me completed by my daily yoga and strength n’stretch workout. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or leave a comment below. Let me know what you are doing this week and don’t forget to have fun and listen to your body!

Cheers SaMy
