Last run done

Hi buzzers! I thought the posts would be flowing this week, full of maranoia, but I have been busy with other things haha. I haven't even started packing yet. But I think I have decided on clothes. Maybe. The weather seems okay at the moment, not to war...

A week to go

Hi buzzers! A sure sign that the marathon is coming close is my feeling that I want to write at least three blogs every day, just to update you on what I'm doing. That's my kind of taper madness. Together with the wierd dreams, but they haven't showed u...

Back on track

Hi again buzzers! As I promised earlier today, this will be a longer post. I actually do have some running to tell you about, and it feels like I am finally back on track after the flu.  Last week I started by running for 2 hours on Monday. I decided to...

Realbuzzers hotel? =D

Hi buzzers! I will write a longer post later, but had to post this picture. I looked up the coffee shop where we will meet up in Brighton, and found this funny coincidence. Have you seen the name of the hotel nearby? So cool, didn't know you had your ow...

Babysteps again

Hi buzzers! Again it's been pretty quiet from my side and that is because I don't have much running to report about. The cold I got two weeks ago turned out to be the flu so I was down with fever and bad coughing for a few days. And it took a while to r...

Luck is not on my side

Hi buzzers! I have been a bit absent here, at least with my own writing. I have been reading lots of blogs though, and it's so inspiring to read now when the spring races starts, and the marathons get closer.  After my last, very happy, blog things have...

The name of the game

Well hello my dear Buzzers! I will go directly to the point of this blog, I have had an amazing running week. This is how it always should be, the body should always feel like this, it should always be able to keep this pace. It's almost like I'm flying...

When life intervenes

Hi buzzers! Hope you all are well and that you are making progress in your training. I have not been very active here this week, it has been a week of many ups and downs. On wednesday I went to the gym to do some core work, and while I was doing that I ...

Feelings of spring

Finally some time to blog! The day still needs more hours! Combining school, work and marathon training is not the easiest, it's a lesson in being flexible. I have been doing every run on my training plan so far, I just move them around to fit my other ...

Together we are strong

So, I was one of many who joined Vin's call yesterday and ran for World Cancer Day yesterday. I had 8 km on my schedule so out I went. It was a bit cold, about -3, but an opportunity to try out my new wool baselayer. I stayed warm. =) Sometimes it's go...

On and on and on

Hi buzzers! So sorry about my absence, it has been a busy two weeks since my last posts. Sometimes there is just not enough hours to the day. So I'll do a summary of the first two weeks of my training plan for Brighton! If you don't feel like reading ha...

Travel arrangements - check!

So, after days (and nights) of looking at hotels, comparing airlines, trying different combinations of days here and days there, I have made my booking for Brighton. My original plan, which had me landning on Gatwick on friday evening, very convenient w...

Another week gone by

Hi buzzers! Hope you all are well and that your training is progressing, no matter what you are training for. I have had a busy week with two exams and two long days at work but I have been able to do some good running too.  I started of the week on mon...

2015, start and race plan

Hi buzzers! Thanks for all your comments on my 2014 summary, I'm surprised you made it to the end haha. I will give you my 2015 plan but first we'll look at the running I have done so far this year.  I started the year on the 2nd with a spontaneous 10k ...

2014 in review

So, what really happend in 2014? Well I ran a lot. I ran my first marathon. I fixed new PBs in almost every distance. But I think those few sentences don't make this year justice. I will try my best to keep this as short as possible, but you know by now...

Happy new year!

Yes, it will be a happy new year! For the first time since I took up running again, three years ago, I have reached my running goal! Modifyed this time, but still, I did it! After running 4,6 km yesterday evening, late and dark, and a little freezing ra...

The end of the year

Hi buzzers! Hope you have had a great christmas with lots of time with people you love. After a week burried in school stuf that was due before christmas and 4 days of intense work I arrived home to my parents. For the first time in our almost 9 years t...

The way old friends do

You know that feeling. The one when you haven't been running a lot for a while, and then you do and it is like running on clouds. I had that today. When I got back from my 8 km "long run", I call it long as I have not been running that far for over 2 mo...

Stay safe!

Hi buzzers! I hope you all are safe, I heard you had some stormy weather the last days. Turns out it's on it's way towards me now, they have asked us to stay inside tomorrow evening if we can so I guess it will be quite windy.  I decided to do my traini...

Onwards and upwards!

Hi buzzers! Feel that I have to let you know my decision. I did not take the place in London, it will be Brighton after all. It's weird, I have been obsessed about getting a place in London, but when I finally had one and the decision was all mine, it w...

Change of plans?

Hi buzzers! I really need your input tonight. To make it short, VICTA offered me a place in London today. Do I accept it or do I stick to Brighton as I planned? I had just accepted that I would not be in London this year, and started to really look forw...

The road to Brighton...

...starts here! I am back running, at last! It has only been two very short runs, about 4 km, but just to be running is amazing. It is babysteps at the moment, but at least I move forward faster than a snail. =) http://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity...

Don't tell anyone...

...but I ended up getting a place in Brighton. It was a late night decision but I have not regreted it yet. =) I do want to run London, that is my first choice any day of the week. But it seems like I don't get a place this year, and I have to face that...

Is Brighton the way to go?

Hi buzzers! I hope you all are well, and I hope all of our Snowdonia heroes has recovered in a good way. You did an amazing job up there! I'm pretty much going nuts here. I felt better last week but of course the cold came back over the weekend. I'm goi...
