How Did I Get Here?

I used to focus on all the wrong things and ignore every signal my body gave me. Over time, though, I learned to listen to my body and changed my life by adjusting daily schedule, nutrition and training process.

Hi there! My name is Andrejs and this is the story of how I went from being an over trained pro athlete to a blogger sharing how not to waste time and live life to the fullest.

My bigger goal, however, is to inspire you to say YES to any adventure, be it a surf trip, a trek in the Himalaya or signing up to run your first marathon. Most importantly, do it for the sheer pleasure and without wondering if you're fit for it.

Starting to listen to my body


Burning out

Back when I was a kid nothing seemed to hold me in any sport for long. For me it was just a fun way of spending time. Kayaking was no exception - at the beginning it was just sun, water, time with friends, swimming, laughing and all.

One day, however, something clicked and I was not ok anymore with just participating. Fast forward several years here I was - multiple times national champion, top 20 places in European and World championships. I was eager to see where can I take myself and how far can I go.
