          PetiteSheWolf , running 4-5 times a week I only had to add an evening walk on the other days to get to 10k steps, but there's no time for that anymore.

          Thank you, Montserrat , lofivelcro , Fremen , TopNotch (I used to like beetroot exactly until one day I got sick after having a generous amount of pickled beetroot with my lunch. It's not the beetroot that made me sick, but my mind has made the connection, and now there's no turning back.), JCU , huma , Silent Wolf , FirstAgeDragonWolf , Anek , Whirly , Gandhalfit , HellYeah !

          Tuesday, May 31

          Midday
          -- 10 min warmup run
          -- 25 min: 15 sec fast run, 15 sec slow run
          -- 5 min cooldown run
          -- stretching

          Stress management:
          I woke up in a very bad mood, but I felt much better after getting some urgent tasks done.

          Wednesday, June 1

          Late afternoon
          -- 50 min run
          -- stretching

          Evening
          -- Day 1 of Plank Hero | shoulder taps | lvl III
          -- Day 10 of Strength Protocol | back & biceps | pull-ups | with a bit of cheating (putting my feet on the ground for a short second), I managed two proper pull-ups after one another! (And then a half more)
          -- Day 13 of Power Up
          (Σ: 27 min)

          Stress management:
          Today was a roller coaster, but I decided to pat myself on the back for being productive and to award myself with a tick.

              Thursday, June 2

              Midday
              -- Day 2 of Plank Hero | plank leg raises | lvl I
              -- Day 11 of Strength Protocol | legs
              -- Day 14 of Power Up
              (Σ: 19 min)

              Late afternoon
              -- 40 min run
              -- stretching

              Stress management:
              I had a semi-awkward online meeting, but I focused on stressing about it as little as possible, and I succeeded.

              Friday, June 3

              Before breakfast
              -- Day 3 of Plank Hero | plank rotations | lvl III
              -- Day 12 of Strength Protocol | abs
              -- Push, Squat, Repeat | lvl I
              -- Day 15 of Power Up
              (Σ: 30 min)

              Stress management:
              Far from a perfect day, I had to do two days worth of work done in one day. That meant being sedentary all day, which doesn't help raise energy levels. But I didn't become impatient and stayed productive, so I think I did well!

                Nice going on staying productive 👍

                      Saturday, June 4

                      Before breakfast
                      -- 20 min jog
                      -- stretching

                      Sunday, June 5

                      Evening
                      -- 1 hr 40 min run
                      -- stretching

                      This weekend we went to the place where we'll have this year's Tolkien camp. There were some workshops, but the main goal was team building among the organisers.

                      Stress management:
                      I kept a good balance between interacting with people to build relationships and allowing my introverted self to rest.

                      Monday, June 6

                      Afternoon
                      -- 3 km walk

                      Night
                      -- Days 4-6 of Plank Hero | 10 plank arm raises, 10 side bridges, 10x plank into lunge
                      -- Day 13 of Strength Protocol | shoulders, chest & triceps | well, I can't do an L-sit, but I did… something
                      -- Day 16 of Power Up
                      (Σ: 26 min)

                      Stress management:
                      I allowed myself not to work today and spent time with my boyfriend's family, then, in the evening, on organising another event of the society. There was some stress eating, but oh well, I can't be too strict with myself.

                        With the Hungarian Tolkien Society's 20th anniversary celebrations coming up and with having to work more now because I'll work less in the next two months (hardly matters though. food is getting ridiculously expensive), I barely have any time. I'll try to post here more often though, just because the Hive is such a nice and relaxing place.

                        -- 40 min walk

                        Stress management:
                        I managed my time very well! Without spending too much time on a single project in one sitting, but making good progress on everything that's urgent. I should've rested more though.

                          Morning
                          -- 10 min warmup run
                          -- 30 min: 15 sec fast | 15 sec jog
                          -- 5 min cooldown run

                          Stress management:
                          I was moody and frustrated because of lack of time.

                          Afternoon

                          Stress management:
                          I started the day so stressed, that I had much more waffles for breakfast than I should've, and I was still very full by the time I should've had lunch.
                          But I'm finally caught up with work, and the day ended with a lovely dnd session, so it was all fine by the end!

                            Midday
                            -- 10 min warmup run
                            -- 25 min: 1 min fast, 1 min jog
                            -- 5 min cooldown run

                            Afternoon
                            -- 50 plank step-outs | Day 19 of Plank Hero
                            -- Day 20 of Strength Protocol | abs
                            -- 30 up and down planks | Day 20 of Plank Hero
                            -- 50 elbow plank arm raises | Day 21 of Plank Hero
                            -- 10 plank walk-outs | Day 22 of Plank Hero
                            -- Day 24 of Power Up
                            (Σ: 37 min)

                            Stress management:
                            I'm getting better at turning stress into action and avoiding avoidance.

                            Still, I just want to survive this week. The four-day celebration of the Society's 20th birthday would be tiring in itself, but as a main organiser, it's exhausting… My boyfriend (also one of the main organisers) is worried that the whole team will be so stressed about it, that none of us will be able enjoy the event itself.

                              Thursday, June 23

                              Afternoon
                              -- 90 min run

                              This was supposed to be a 2 hour run, but I was short on time, stressed and also it was my fifth consecutive day of running (or sixth if I count last Saturday's short jog). I had to switch up the days so because I'll be away from home for most of the next three days, and I don't want to skip any runs when it's a marathon I'm training for.

                              Stress management:
                              Baking cookies doesn't go well even with mild stress (the cookies are fine, my body on the other hand suffered from the excess sugar I happened to consume), but I still think I did rather well considering how busy the day was.

                                Good luck with the event, I hope you'll be able to enjoy it yourself!
