All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Running for Pleasure

Running and walking medium and long distance for pleasure as a fruitarian.

  • Last Runs and Walks in 2017

    Yes, today on my 17K walk I have seen this scene: two guys in red shirts were caring a white sofa through the park, and a boy in white ran around them.

    Below is a simple list of my more significant runs and walks (those much longer than 10K) in the last months of 2017, in kilometers (km, or K), starting with the most recent ones:

    • December: 17, 9, 9, 12, 9, 9, 8, 9, 7, 8, 10, 9, 7, 10
    • November: 10, 11, 8, 8, 7, 7, 7, 10, 10,11.

    I do not count those under 5K.

    It looks like I was not making my usual former 10K! I did not track the distance during the runs - it interrupts my audio-books, and I prefer to look at it later - and assumed that the distance I measured earlier was enough. Now I need to run about 1 km further to add 2K and make sure I make over 10 km (6.2 miles). There are a few days left in December, so maybe I could add a few 10s in my list.

  • 8K Walk / Run - Easing into the Morning Running

    After a too short night sleep :)

  • 8K Run + Unusual Vegan Fruitarian Salads

  • 18K Walk-Run to Newport Beach, Huntington Beach Restaurant, Berries for Lunch

  • 84K in December (10K Run)

  • 10K Walk / Run + Jump + Exercise - You Need Only Shoes

    Two-hour exercise outside on Saturday in SoCal (California).

  • 10K Walk / Run - Nature, Teens, Grand Battement, Vlogging, Personal Marketing, Lake

    Another walk and run along a destructed river and by a lake in Southern California: walking, jumping, running, accelerating, elements of ballet training, stretching, grand battement ([batmɑ̃], a movement in which both legs are kept straight and one leg is kicked outward from the body and in again). A few thoughts on freedom of mind, personal marketing on youtube, critique on building communities of loyal followers as a marketing strategy, "begging" for money and attention, cost of making videos.

  • 8K Run / Walk - Internet, Jumps, Empathy, Being in the Moment Limits

    Some thoughts during my morning walk / run: social networks and click-popularity, paying for reaching subscribers on facebook, escaping reality, fruits are not ideal food (there is no ideal food), plants matter regardless whether we can relate to them, alcohol and fast food, limited resources, we need to find ways to live together on this planet.

  • 10K Run - Eating Seeds or Fruit Only

    Another run; trees; talking about how eating juicy fruit only or adding seeds make me feel on the next days; confirmational bias, health related activities of a day: asanas and a few other exercises in the morning, then shower, and eating in the evening in two-three loads, consuming 1500 food calories; short fastings; energy for brain.

  • 13K Walk / Run To the Ocean and Back

    My tiny running story. Construction on the river. On the way back I packed my phone away, ran, and pain almost went away after a kilometer or two.

Albert Schweitzer

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies. 

Ethics and Aesthetics

Ethics - moral principles that govern behavior of a person or a group.

Ethics can refer to standards of right and wrong that prescribe what a human ought to do. Ethical standards include standards relating to rights (e.g. right to life, the right to freedom from injury).

Laws, and social norms, or feelings can differ from what is ethical. It is necessary for individuals to frequently examine own standards to ensure that they are reasonable. 

Ethics as moral philosophy involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. Moral philosophy is related to the fields of moral psychology, descriptive ethics, and value theory.

As a branch of philosophy, ethics investigates the questions

  • "What is the best way for people to live?
  • "What actions are right or wrong in particular circumstances?"

Axiology is the philosophical study of value, collective term for ethics and aesthetics - philosophical fields that depend crucially on notions of worth. 

Aesthetics studies the concepts of "beauty" and "harmony." Aesthetics (esthetics) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of art, beauty, and taste, creation and appreciation of beauty. It is more scientifically defined as the study of sensori-emotional values. More broadly, aesthetics is defined as "critical reflection on art, culture and nature."
