Finally taper time

Hi buzzers! Time flies at the moment, can't believe Manchester is less than a week away. I will get there on Friday evening so time to start packing! I have started to plan my outfit, and it will be pink and black this year. =) As for the running, I ha...

Now she's running!

Hi buzzers, not so long since last post this time, and I feel the need to write increase as we get closer to Manchester. As I was so far behind with my training I didn't want to think about how close it actually was but I have to accept that I will not ...

I'm alive!

Hi buzzers, it's been too long since I last blogged but I am alive. It's just been a busy time, and I've also spent two weeks in wonderful and lovely Jamaica.  Before we went away I did get a few runs in, started to come back into a good routine. But th...

One step forward and two step...

Hi buzzers! I try to not forget my blog at the moment, I know I will appriciate it later to be able to look back and remember.  This was supposed to be a cheerful post about me getting back on track with my training plan, but yesterday I got a cold agai...

2015 in the mirror

Hi buzzers! It is finally time for my review of 2015, the rollercoaster year. As I always write long post, I will start with a summary, just in case you don't feel like reading a novel.  In 2015 I ran six races, 2 marathons (Brighton and Oslo), 1 half m...

Winter is here! And it's cold!

Hello buzzers! I'm still here, but as always life is very busy. And even more so at the moment as we are going to move out of our apartment next week since they are going to refurbish our bathroom. I can do lots of things, however live in an apartment w...

December

Hi buzzers! I hope you all have had a lovely holiday with your family and friends. I spent christmas at my parents, just like every year. And on Wednesday I go to London to celebrate New Years with some friends. (If anyone should be in London during the...

What happened to November?

Hi buzzers! Hope you all are well. I thought it was time for an update here, apparently I started to write this post 2 weeks ago but time just flies away at the moment. I have been running though, I try to prioritize it as much as I can during the week ...

Let's talk about Oslo...

Hi buzzers! Finally it's here, my race report from Oslo. It has taken some time to finish, and at the same time I have had to put my self confidence back together, and I have to tell you I am not done with that just yet. It was a hard day, no doubts abo...

So, what's really been going on?

Hi buzzers! I know I promised you my race report form Oslo, it is still just a draft so I will make a quick update of what's been going on since then. I like to do things in the right order, but god knows when I'll be finished with that one haha.  After...

Two days to go...

Hi buzzers! I am happy to tell you that I have not gone all mad this week. I haven't even had weird dreams yet. Usually I dream that I miss the start, get lost on the course or run for so long that it gets dark. But maybe I'm getting more relaxed as I k...

Taper weeks

Hi buzzers! Again a two weeks blog, I am not in phase with my life at the moment. Feels like all I do is eat, sleep, work and sit on the train. Don't get me wrong, I love my new job, but working full time takes a lot of time. Ehm, I think you know what ...

Great Oggie Run 2015

Ok, so here it is finally, my Oggie Run 2015. Turned out it's quite exhausting to start a new job. I have pretty much just been coming home, had dinner and gone to bed these days. But today I seem to manage to stay awake on the train so I use the time t...

Two rollercoaster weeks

Hi buzzers! I so have to get better at blogging. Two weeks since last post, and truth be told, it has not been the most optimistic weeks. As I told you last time, I had really bad pain in one of my knees and was worried something was wrong. Well, lets s...

No more jinxing!

Ok, that's it. I'm never ever again writing that I feel good, that my body is well or anything positive. Never! It always seems to fail me.  Last week I had a slow, recovery like run on tuesday, legs felt a bit tired from sundays long run but still mana...

Where was I?

Here we are again, long time no see. I wish I could tell you I have been running lots, but unfortunately I got sick just in time for my vacation. But I think we should take the last month in order. I last updated you when I started my training plan for ...

Time to start again

So, next goal on my running horizon is coming closer. Oslo marathon 19 september is only 81 days away, which is funny as it's like 80 days since Brighton. My training plan starts this week and I will use the same one as last time, I keep fighting toward...

A very late race report

Hi buzzers! It's been a long time since my last post, and I have not been a very frequent visitor here the last few weeks. It's just too much other stuf to deal with. I'm glad I have some of you on FB so I can keep track of you. =)  So, where were we? W...

Another kind of long run

Hi buzzers! Long time no see again! Running, and blogging, had to take the back seat for a while after Brighton, and the reason for that spells wedding. I got married on Saturday, as some of you have seen on FB. And it turned out to be a lot to do the l...

Brighton recovery

First, thank you so much for all your comments on my Brighton blogs! It means so much! This one will be about what I have done since last Sunday, not a lot of running but lots of walking. =)  On Monday morning I woke up at 8:30 something, as I had to ha...

Brighton Marathon weekend pt ...

I warn you for one of my longest blogs ever...get a cup of tea or a glas of wine!  So, after 7 hours of sleep (I'm not kidding, I was exhausted) I woke up at 5:40 on Sunday morning. I had the alarm set to 6:00 so it was nice to wake up by myself and be ...

Brighton Marathon weekend pt 1

Okay, I think I might be the last one to start a proper write up of the events the past weekend. It will be long and I will try to get as many details in as possible, for my own memorys sake, so I will divide it into at least two parts.  My week before ...

When all is said and done

It's late at night (1:15 am) and I should be in bed but I had to read the blogs first. I will make comments tomorrow as I am very tired at the moment. Traveling does that to you, and I also had to put the clock back to swedish time again which ment it j...

On my way

So, I've been up for a little bit over two hours, after sleeping just about two hours and I'm now at the airport ready to board my flight. I have my running shoes, Garmin and sports bra in the carry on bag, everything else is replaceable haha. So far I ...
