After working with running shoes for over two years and having tried 20 different pairs of running shoes I now feel equipped to try the next level of running shoes, my co-workers all time favorite shoe, the Saucony Kinvara. I have been lucky enough to try out the Kinvara 10 Special Anniversary Edition the last couple of month and have been looking forward to telling you guys about it.Read More
I'm finally getting closer to my goal of doing IRONMAN France in June. And now 5 weeks before is a great time to push the limits and do a half distance during training.
I've researched this a bit, and I have seen several sources refer to a half ironman as a good way to get in shape for competition, as long as it's 5-6 weeks away from the actual race. Any closer and it'll be too hard for the body to recover properly.
Follow me on my day out, and look how tired I became.
Monday I headed over to https://www.m2sportslab.dk/ to do some running tests. During my time there I got a body scan, measured my lactate level at different speeds and did a VO2max test.
I've never done this before and it was certainly a new experience that I learned a lot from.
This summer’s greatest experience was the climb Amalie, Karl Otto and I did in Loen. Some years ago a via ferrata route was made up the mountain and it was a our first time trying it out. Karl Otto and I have tried free climbing before, but Amalie who hadn’t done anything similar before really completed it in style. It was an amazing experience that we got to share together.Read More
My biggest race of the season became a huge success. The Lillebælt Half Marathon was finished with the new PR 1:26:59 on a rather hot day. On top of that I also managed to collect some money for the Children’s Heart Foundation. Great succes!
The 17th of May is a special day for every Norwegian. It’s our independence day and we celebrate it by eating a bunch of hot dogs, ice creams and waiving our beautiful flag while shouting “hurra!” A great day!
I had to work that day, so I ended up celebrating it by running a short lap around Odense, having so many people smile and congratulate me during my run.
At the end of May I let my followers decide my training schedule for a week. This was such cool experience that I really enjoyed doing. I might want to do this again sometime.
This picture was the most liked picture from that week. What shoe was I to run in that day? You guys decided that I would run in the Topo Fli-Lyte 2 (the orange one).
Late May was also the time when I got back to swimming again. Gangsta swimmer was back in style with the GoPro and some fast 100m intervals.
I really enjoy my time at the pool, and look forward to getting better and better as I train more.
Henrik was the well deserved winner of my competition with Spar Nord in June. He won 10.000kr because of his 20 year long contribution to Odense triathlon. A great winner that really deserved a pat on the back.
I’ve never been good at this exercise and I must admit that I never do it unless I’m in front of a camera. This little deck next to the lake was built in the last year and it’s a great place to stop during runs to get a bit of quiet time away from the city.
The shots of Q2 2018 was very different from the scenic shots from Q1, still they are very important in telling the story about what have happened this last year. In Q3 I head to Norway, so watch out for some drop dead gorgeous scenery!
2018 has given me a bunch of memories and good shots on the way. Here are the first part of a four part series showing the best pictures and experiences from 2018.Read More
From I was 12 years old I started playing volleyball. I quickly improved from being a novice, and it became the only thing I wanted to do with my life. Since about my 16th birthday, my life has revolved around the sport. I moved to Ålesund at the age of 16 to play, and two years later I got the chance to play on the top Norwegian level in Tromsø. It evolved to a short volley stay at the University of Manitoba in Canada, before getting a professional contract with a Danish club in Odense.Read More
Yesterday was my first day in my 32-week IRONMAN project. I have tried my best to get ready for the start and it wasn’t long until I would get my first real smack in the face.Read More
For weeks now I have been preparing for when my training regime will start. I have steadily built up my strength and have completed between 5-9 hours of training the last weeks. My biking is going better and better and my running injuries are being taken care of. One thing that isn’t going perfectly according to plan is the swimming.Read More
If you haven’t heard of the Ingebrigtsen brothers from Norway then you probably haven’t been watching athletics on television for a while. What has made these three brothers so successful is an outstanding work ethic and a brutal coach that has coached them from they were very young. That coach is their father,Read More
