All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Personal philosophy, lifestyle and diet of the author of this fruitarian site, a long-term vegan fruitarian Lena.

Trying to find place to run outside in Californian suburbs.

This week I traveled to Kansas and Missouri, these are a few visuals from my time in the airport and on the airplane on the way there.

Buying fruits in SoCal's supermarkets in November: Smart and Final, Stater Bros. - fruit prices, fruitarian / frugan foods I often or sometimes buy (apples, oranges, pears, tomatoes, avocados, green peas, etc.)

6K Pool Swim

I did not want to stop swimming, and wanted to check whether I could double my usual these days distance. I did not care much about the style and speed, I just wanted to move forward in water, because nothing better waited for me outside on this emotionally excruciating day.

264 length (25 yards), 6 km total, in almost 3:07 (187 minutes). Six kilometers should constitute 4 swimmer's miles. First 200 I made in 2:20, first 5 km - in 2:35 (155 minutes).

UCSD open air pool, 1.5K

Suddenly, my time on one swimmer's mile (66 short laps/lengths of this open air pool) has improved by 3 minutes! After making that 6 km swim I went back to 1.5 km a day to the same time as before: around 45 minutes, and today it was under 42!

Additionally, for the first time I made a couple of lengths (25 yards) in 34 seconds, my best time before was 36. Additionally, I had several 35-s in a row. 

No idea why. I did not sleep well for two last nights because of the troubles in my private life, and the last night I slept on a rather soft surface, not on my usual double yoga mat, and my back was aching.

On the other hand, my style gets better, effortlessly (still breaststroke).

Leonardo da Vinci

I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
