I wrote about me doing this interval session yesterday on my Instagram, and I must admit I had butterflies in my stomach before running yesterday. Once I start I struggle with finding the motivation to finish it, but with a friend pushing you it all gets a lot easier.Read More
It's finally easter vacation for me as well, and like every other weekend, stuff is happening. These five days are days where I really want to train, so I'll try to make the best of it.
Usually during the holidays I'm with my family in Norway. During those times we usually have a training camp, where we go out to run every day. On saturday there will be a race arranged by my family seeing who are the fastest to the top of our village. It's a 4k run with an altitude increase of 400 meters, a race where you are pushing yourself as close to vomiting as humanly possible. Last year I was breathing so hard at the end, that my throat was making a whining noise.
Anyway, since I don't have my family to work out with, I'll need to be structured and try to fit in everything I can into my busy schedule. Hopefully you'll get to see some cool stuff on strava in the next days.
My next race is already on the calendar and I'm starting to work towards it now. Lillebælt half marathon will take place on May 6th. It's taking place on almost the exact same location, but has the more spectacular route across the bridge in the background.Read More
For over 4 months I've had my thigh injury under control. Running long distance has been a little bit painful, but it hasn't really troubled me. But it only took one real asphalt race until I again had troubles.Read More
Yesterday evening was spent working for Multiatleten and Diadora at an event called "Løb med Avisen" (translated: run with the newspaper), a collaboration during winter and spring with the local newspaper, that helps people start running in the best way possible.
They offer one run every week with lots of like minded people, as well as lectures from guest speakers about how to take care of your body when you're training. Overall it's a wonderful package that easily integrates normal people into becoming runners.
Their most important focus is to start off slow, and progress when your body feels ready. They don't run with high speed, but rather focus on running in a pace where you can socialise with the others.
Speaking as a running junkie, I could easily say that I love this project. Running for me is the gateway to so many more experiences, and if more people can share in the joy, the better.
It's been a while since I've gone all out in a race, and my muscles are feeling the ramifications of it all today. As an athlete I'm used to always having some kind of pain at all times. If it isn't an injury then it sure is some kind of soreness from working out too hard. Waking up with pains is just a normal day.Read More
Tomorrow is race day, and I can easily say that the weeks before this has not been optimal to maximize my performance on my first 10k race in 5-6 years. My plan is still to completely shatter my previous record of 42:18 by starting strong and finishing even stronger.Read More
On Saturday, at 7.30 a.m. my girlfriend drove me to the peninsula next to Føns beach for a run. She dropped me off at the furthermost point possible to reach without trespassing, and drove back towards the beach awaiting my arrival.Read More
It's been a while since I have run a half marathon race. The last time was at the Kystleden Half Marathon in 2013, and I need to remember how it was to run.Read More
Training in the morning is both such a blessing, and such a chore. Here my view on the early morning activity.Read More
