120 x 25 m in 92 min

And new lap record: first 80 x 25 m in exactly 60 min. So I finally managed to swim at 2 km/h steadily for one hour.

160 x 25 m in 130 min

PS: lifeguards seem to be having bets on when I would give up.

-2.4 (= -6.3)

… since first weekly measurement on 2011-07-07, i.e. after three weeks. The left side has been cut to protect the guilty numbers. I’ll post the full graph when I climbed down that summit on the left side … oh and … Continue reading

K.O.

Just did a workout that deserves that name. 150 x 25 m in 121 min. I know, I know this may not seem very fast, but it’s already a huge improvement in speed but most importantly in stamina. Admittedly I … Continue reading

First time I got blocked by Wikipedia

Turns out this server and along with it approximately 64k IP addresses are blocked from editing Wikipedia, because apparently some customers of Hetzner – my hoster – run open proxies. I appealed the block and will have to see what … Continue reading

Wann distanzieren sich denn die Kirchen?

Nach dem Anschlag in Oslo und dem Massaker auf Utøya hätte ich eigentlich erwartet, daß sich die christlichen Kirchen mit deutlichen Worten von derlei Taten distanzieren. Schließlich gehört es auch zum guten Ton der Political Correctness dies von moslemischen Verbänden … Continue reading

Admirable

The calm reactions of the Norwegians and the thoughtful statements from officials – not jumping to conclusions prematurely – is truly admirable. It shows that despite the gruesome acts committed one does not have to point fingers before knowing enough … Continue reading

– 1.0 (= -3.5)

PS: for my US-American reader(s?), Google says: 3.8 kg ≅ 8.4 lbs PPS: corrected values. This is since the first “official” measurement on 2011-07-07 (before breakfast, as every Thursday since then). The 3.8 was due to me wrongly picking the … Continue reading

Erstaunlich

Es fehlen in Deutschland also “qualifizierte Fachkräfte”. Gemeint sind aber nicht wirklich Leute die ihr Fach beherrschen, sondern solche die den entsprechenden Wisch ihr eigen nennen. Es geht doch nicht darum was die Leute können, sondern was der Wisch behauptet … Continue reading

“Lecker”

Da hab ich mir ein paar Weintrauben als Snack geholt und dann aus der ZDF Mediathek doch die falsche Sendung gewählt: TerraXpress “Blitzsauber”. Und da geht es dann im ersten Teil um Vogelkacke. Guten Appetit! // Oliver

Obama: “deficit reduction”

I don’t think so. I have a record calorie deficit (net amount > 4000 kcal) today and I have no intention of reducing it … okay maybe I will. But only a little Update: actually 2011-07-17 was my new record … Continue reading

Lesson (not) learned

Damn, I did it again. Went swimming and now I still have the C25K (day 2, week 2) ahead of me, because I slacked the entire day yesterday (i.e. 12th of July) If I survive the C25K I’ll update this … Continue reading

Interessant

Die Scharfschützin … sehr lesenswert. »Aber Sie haben getötet. Hat diese Tatsache nie Ihr Hochgefühl getrübt?« werfe ich ein, weil ich diesen Stolz, den sie zeigt, plötzlich nicht mehr aushalten kann. »Nein.« Verwundert schaut sie mich an.

Polish sauerkraut stew: Kapuśniak

I adapted the recipe here to my needs. The original author does not seem to use sauerkraut, but I only know it with sauerkraut and a Polish colleague confirmed that Kapuśniak requires sauerkraut. Alas, here’s the recipe adjusted by me. … Continue reading

Polnischer Sauerkrauteintopf: Kapuśniak

Habe einmal dieses Rezept ein wenig abgewandelt und an meine Bedürfnisse angepaßt. Auch scheint die Autorin kein Sauerkraut zu benutzen, obwohl ich es nur mit Sauerkraut kenne und ein polnischer Kollege mir bestätigte, daß Kapuśniak immer mit Sauerkraut gemacht wird. … Continue reading

Setback

Of course I don’t have really comprehensive numbers, but the only three official numbers for my weight I have so far have the following deltas: 0 kg, -0.9 kg, +1.0 kg … … despite the steady calorie deficit. I’ll blame … Continue reading
