I let my Instagram followers decide my training schedule for a week. Did they make me suffer?! Well, watch and find out!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
My priorities the last couple of days have been elsewhere than this blog. It's winter vacation in Denmark and my girlfriend has time off from work. Spending time with her has been a top priority the last couple of days, but I managed to get in a short run during a beautiful sunset and decided to bring my video camera to show you the city I live in.Read More
Friday's run around Hindsgavl was spectacular. I really didn't have a plan when I came there and was running mostly on impulse when deciding where to go. As you'll see on the Strava session below I started over by the parking lot outside the castle grounds and went straight towards the water. I wanted to save running around the castle for last, closer to when the sun was going down.Read More
My run around Hindsgavl Castle on Friday was spectacular. I am extremely happy I did it, and also just as happy that I filmed the entire thing. Check it out, and if you like it, consider subscribing for more videos like this!
For me, training is all about exploring. If you don't get to go out and train than most of my motivation goes away. many people can tell me how beautiful things are, but I never really trust them. It's all about seeing it for yourself, not living through another person or book. That's when I feel like I'm learning more about the planet we live on, and those are the most valuable lessons we can get.Read More
I made a short video from the little ski touring trip I had the other day. It's a typical first ride of the season, not the biggest drops and not the most epic trip, but it was still a lot of fun.Read More
It's the day before Christmas here in Norway. The last bit of the grocery shopping needs to be done, and a lot of people have this day to put up the Christmas tree. I'm going to try to use my free time to get a nice tempo run in, if my legs are not too sore from Wednesday's epic run to Klovset. The movie above is a collection of the shots I did that day.
When editing this movie I realized that I lost some footage of arriving at the mountain farm. But luckily I use the camera way too much and had redundant amounts of video to use. Would have wished I had that one shot though.
In the morning before the wedding on Saturday I managed to convince my girlfriend to check out this reef that goes out towards the ocean on the island Samsø. She joined in for the trip, and ran with me for a short while, before returning to do some last minute toastmaster stuff before the wedding.
The plan was for me to run outwards, and then bring my camera. Amalie would take a few shots of me running out there, but when we finally found the spot to shoot we realized that the memory card was back home in Odense. That meant we had to take sport shots on a cloudy day with the iPhone. They turned out great, but the action couldn't be frozen in the way I wanted it.
Anyway, I continued to run and brought my GoPro with me in case I wanted to make a video. After a day of editing the video is finally ready. It got to my attention that I liked this trip so much that I constantly gave a thumbs up, and that's why I wanted to share the experience.
The reason this run was such a cool experience was the type of scenery I ran through. I have never really seen nature like this earlier in my life. I ran along a reef which is submerged in water only at high tide and that stretched outwards and gave new things to look at around every corner. The ground was at times totally horrific to run on, with soft sands and pebbles that rolled everywhere, but sometimes I got to small islands that gave me solid ground.
At the end of the reef i came to a place where they placed canons in earlier wars. The canon was gone now, but the hills surrounding the spot gave a very nice view. It was such an epic experience and something I needed to share with all of you. I hope you enjoyed it!
