    Just came back from a weeks holiday in the Czech Republic - had a great time although not fitnesswise but so be it. I managed once to do some sets of the Baseline programme in the early morning at the banks of the river Ohre which was absolutely beautiful. But that was it. Saw amazing things though - walked around the monestary of Tepla for hours (big recommendation - visit it if you can), had a good time in Karlovy Vary etc. etc. I also very much like the West Bohemian attitude: Let me live as I please and let everybody else live as they please. A great contrast to today's Germany.
    Back home concerning fitness I find confidence in a simple sentence that CaptainCanuck wrote once somewhere: the end of one thread is the start of another. No more to be said, looking forward to another new start.
    Have a good time and good training to all!

        Sounds like fun.

        I can't take too much credit for that phrase, I paraphrased it from the song Closing Time.

          Thank you SheWhoMustNotBeNamed CaptainCanuck !
          Fitnesswise I came to admire the accomplishments of folk dancers. We went to an event in the course of the folk festival of Karlovy Vary and saw groups from Romania, Poland and Bosnia and Herzegowina performing their dances. I can only say: wow. I was totally enthusiastic about the athletic performance, the coordination of the dancers, the display of body control, the harmony of music and movement. Beautiful traditional dresses as well...

            Your trip sounds amazing! It certainly makes me want to visit, now!

              JCU I can only advise you to give in to your wants ​​

              By the way: I was always fascinated by the depth of the thought expressed in "Totall Recall" that the only thing you bring back and keep from your travels, holidays etc. is the memories. How about simply implanting some...? Philip K. Dick's imaginative genius, as always... But that is something completely different

              Anyhow I always need some time re-adjusting to "normal" life when back. This week I had (for the last time in the foreseeable future) some extra time which I could have used to do sensible things like to start my annual tax declaration (what I absolutely hate to do) or to catch up with my Darebee programme. However I chose to read books in the parks, enjoyed the unexpected sunny and warm days of the fading summer, did some extra freelance work and biked out into the countryside to small local breweries - what I did there I leave to your imagination.

              Tomorrow however things will change anyway and others will decide on a larger part of my daily time. The older I get however the more I subscribe the dictum I once read somewhere, that there is no thing in life more stupid than that others dictate where you have to be and when you have to be there. On the other hand: some structure is never wrong, at least for me.

              So no fitness-accomplishments to log, something that needs to be and will be changed soon.

              Happy days Bees and good training!

                I think you made the correct choice!

                Also, the Czech Republic is high on my list of places i would like to visit someday.

                  Mamatigerj Thank you!

                  And to refer to something you wrote about alternatives recently: there is none anyway, the time is gone and was spent as it was spent. But it is nice to get some confirmation though

                    Sounds like an amazing trip, the Checz Republic is a beautiful country. (: Glad to see you doing well, I hope you adjust to the "normal" life well!

                      Refering to my fitness program: nothing to tell, nothing to log. Work is eating me up alive, bureaucracy at all levels is ever expanding, gnawing away my time. We had elections here so the internet appeared to be a big thief of my available time as well. Am I smarter now or did I get substantial insights to vote more wisely. Doubt it.
                      Finished Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobiography "Total Recall', very inspiring, one can learn a lot out of it. Seeing what I have accomplished recently I should start with learning soon
                      Finished Heinrich Spoerl's Die Feuerzangenbowle (The Punch Bowl) - very funny
                      Finished Edgar Wallace's "The India-Rubber Men" - so far I cannot comprehend fully why Edgar Wallace had been such a tremendous success in Germany... Maybe I should give another of his novels a try...

                        I hope you get a break from beaurocracy. Sounds like you had quite a lot of fun reading, I'm not familiar with any of those books but I'll check them out.
