Stockholm training week 2

Another week of training, and now following the plan. The plan is for a 5 hour marathon, a bit faster than I plan to run but it was the closest one for me. I adjust the paces a little to fit me better. Monday was restday, but Tuesday I was back at it. ...

Stockholm marathon, 19 weeks ...

Hello again! I figure that if this blog is going to be worth reading I have to mix realtime posts with look backs, so this one is about what I have in front of me.  A few days ago I happened to enter Stockholm marathon 2018. I've sort of had my life on...

Palace parkrun PB!

So, the amazing pb-weekend in London. I had been close to sub 30-mins 5k before, in 2014 but never since. And those 35 seconds started to be a bit annoying to me. So during the summer when I needed something to get me motivated to run again after Stockh...

2017 in the mirror pt 2

July, kept cycling and did a summer 10k which I was happy with. Hilly course and almost got tackled by an elite runner (he tried to run the wrong way and I tried to keep out of the right way). Also time for holiday, which could mean lots of running but ...

2017 in the mirror pt 1

I'll only do a short summary of 2017, I promise! Due to some kind of limit of pictures it's in two parts though. January, not a lot of running but one of the best runs in the year, in Jamaica. An uneventful 4,5 km run, but in nice warm weather along sm...

Meet me in Stockholm baby, we...

Hi buzzers, This post is probably the latest race report in the history but I'm not known to always be quick and on time. (As an example, my 2015 summary is not yet published I think. =D) But for my own sake I would like to have these words written dow...

Why oh why?

So, in two days time I'm supposed to run Stockholm marathon. I wasn't going to but after the terrorist attack in April, and with the knowledge that they will change the course next year I made an entry. Plus the medal is really nice this year. =D But wh...

Race week pt2! - Göteborgsvar...

I haven't been running that many races this year, but when I do I do them all. =) So 4 days after my trail race it was time for the annual half marathon. I haven't been training the way I wanted, my hip has been giving me trouble since march, but at lea...

Race week! - Trailvarvet

Hi buzzers! I have finally almost managed to be friends with the image upload so blogging is now fun again. I have noticed that only your last blog post shows up in the feed (or at least it looks like that for me) so I if you have nothing to do, I have ...

London Marathon weekend

So, this blog now contains pictures! Happy reading, I warn you, it's a long one again. =)  I arrived in London late Thursday evening, landed at Heathrow and made my way by tube to my hotel in Bayswater. Got a nice single room with a view of the small p...

Keeping the mojo

Another week gone by, and my running mojo is still here! Had a tough day at work on Thursday so moved my tempo run to Friday. That meant back to back running, but it was only 6x500 m and took it a bit easy. Still managed the target pace (and a bit faste...

February

So, didn't manage a blog in February. Bad blogger! But I did run quite a lot, so it feels like I'm on the right track at the moment. I even started a new training plan, 12 weeks with the goal of 2:30 on my half marathon in mid-May. It is actually my old...

2016 in the mirror

Ok, better keep going while I have the energy! I never managed to publish my 2015 summary so will try and make this one short and efficient.  January I entered Manchester Marathon even though I knew it would be hard to manage all the training. But I sti...

Where did 2016 go?

Hi buzzers! I have been embarassingly absent from here the last few months, no blogs written, no blogs read and no comments made. Realbuzz even left my top-8 of visited pages. =( I had a few drafts started so I have finished them and they are now publis...

My birthday parkrun!

Ok, lets get to the next big event of the autumn of 2016. I went to London with my hubby and my best friends for my birthday 8 october, which was on a Saturday this year! Perfect reason to go to London, and a great opportunity to try parkrun for the fir...

I started this draft in october, just haven't finished it until now. =( But here it is!  Hi buzzers, Finally getting around to write something about this years Great Oggie Run, my third one! Always feels good to be part of good things and this year was ...

Parkrun updates!

Hi buzzers! If you read my last post you know that I'm coming to London this weekend to celebrate my birthday and to run my first parkrun. For you who wants to join me and my other friends I have now decided on Fulham Palace parkrun after advice from Ni...

Em's birthday parkrun!

Hi buzzers! I'm working on my post about this years Great Oggie Run, but I can't seem to get the words out and into a blog post at the moment so I felt I had to do this one first.  Next weekend, 6-10 october I am coming to London to celebrate my birthda...

Oops I did it again...

Hi buzzers! Seems like I've not only been on vacation from work, but also from here. I have popped in a few times to see what you guys are up to but nothing more. I have been running a little however, nothing extraordinary but gentle, nice running.  I ...

Göteborgsvarvet week!

It's a bit quiet here at the moment, as is my training diary. However I promised you my race report from my half marathon so here it is. It actually covers the whole week. =) So, race week. Göteborgsvarvet half marathon is my local and regular half mara...

Since Manchester

Hi buzzers! A bit too long since my last post in my opinion, but I just don't manage to sit by the computer and write. In my head I have written quite a few blogs the last few weeks but this is the only one I actually post. =) (I'm actually at work, ple...

Manchester part 2 - Race report

So, here's part 2 of my Manchester story, and this will be about race day. I had set the alarm to 06:00 but woke up 5:55, which felt good. I had slept well, and didn't feel too tired when I woke up. I got up and started to make porridge, but it didn't t...

Manchester part 1

Hi all lovely, lovely buzzers. This is the first part of my Manchester Marathon blogs, I am planning to do 2 parts as I want to write down as much as I can remember about my races, so that I can look back and read just how I felt. And this part begins i...
