Back to reality

So I should probably be in bed already, I don't feel very well and had to go home early from work today. Something wierd, I feel dizzy when I move my head to the right. Hope it feels better tomorrow or I'll have to see a doctor.  Anyway, why am I awake?...

My Marathon weekend part 3 - ...

Here it is then, the marathon part! It's almost a book, but it is Good Friday now, and the swedish name for it is Long friday, if you translate it by the words, so this will give you something to do for a little while. =)  I woke up a few times during t...

My marathon weekend part 2!

Wow, I'm impressed that so many of you have read my first novel of a blog post! So here is part 2! On Saturday I woke up at 7:30. That NEVER happens! And what was more wierd, mum was not awake yet. So managed to get back to sleep even though thousands o...

My marathon weekend part 1

So I'm back in Sweden, the land without green grass and leaves on the trees. (At least for a few more days if you believe the weather service) I had the best weekend ever, and I have so much to write and it's late and I'm tired, so I'll do it in parts. ...

The day after

Just checking in here to tell you all that I'm alive and I have my medal! I finished in 5:59:04 yesterday, an hour away from my target but I just didn't have it in me this time. I felt it right at the start so decided to enjoy the day instead of chasing...

Tomorrow, tomorrow!!!

Last update before I leave for London! The bag is packed, a lot more than I usually pack for London, but this time half the bag is full of running stuf. Clothes in the large bag and shoes and Garmin in the carry on. I will not leave them out of sight!  ...

Last run and packing thoughts

As I spend most of my free time here on Realbuzz these days, I might as well write something. =)  Did my final run today, planned for 8 km, but ended up with 7,7 km, as I did not feel well. The legs were fine, and the foot was no problem, but after a fe...

Time to pack the bag!

With only 5 days left, things starts to feel unreal. I can't believe I'm going to London on friday! I have to pack my bag tomorrow! What the heck am I supposed to pack? I usually just pack underwear and one set of clothes and shop the rest, but this tim...

Countdown continues

And I'm not only counting down towards London (two weeks left, help!) but also until tuesday when I'm going back to the physio to have a check up on my foot. It feels lots better now, and with this lovely, almost summer weather we've had here in Sweden ...

Less then three weeks to go!

Well, only 19 days to go now! Can't believe that in three weeks it will all be over, this has been such a journey.  This weeks status on the footpain is that it is better, I don't have to take painkillers three times a day anymore. Only felt some pain, ...

About the foot

Hi guys,  Just wanted to tell you about my visit to the physio today. As I wrote on sunday, I've had pain in my right foot and just as I suspected, it's probably a strain. So the physio gave me some exercises that I will have to do 2-3 times a day for t...

Not the Sunday I hoped for

Today was the day of my 10k race, and I had planned for a PB today, with the flat course and the training I have been doing I should have fixed it. But since my long run on Tuesday I have not been able to run, I have hardly walked. When resting my legs ...

25 km in the box!

Had to pop in here just to tell you what I've been doing today, an ordinary tuesday. I have been running, and far! I stopped my garmin on 25,2 km and I have to tell you, I did not want to run another 17 km haha. But I guess that will sort it self out in...

Ups and downs

Hi superstars! The last two weeks since my last posts have been like a rollercoaster. I have had dreadfull runs with legs feeling like concrete and runs when I felt like I was flying. This journey towards London is really an experience, it shows me side...

A long run indeed

Was very tired this morning so only managed to get out of bed when I realised I could catch the end of the bronze match of mens curling in the olympics. (every fourth year I LOVE curling, haha, olympic geek? thats me!) And that was good, because Sweden ...

A few weeks later...

Hello again, awesome buzzers! I have not been the most efficient blogger in the last couple of weeks, but I'm still here reading about all the amazing running you all are doing! At the moment I get some great inspiration from the athletes in the Winter ...

Start of training plan

This week marks the start for my training plan for London, it's a 12 week programme aiming for 4:30. That is my dream target, but I often say "aim for the stars, land on the moon". I have set three targets, 5 hours is the first one, as long as I don't b...

First race of 2014!

Finally! The first race of the year was finally here today! I love races, I love the feeling and the atmosphere when you run against other people. This might be because I always run alone, I love when I get company. =) The race is called Winter Run and ...

Winter is here

So, no complaints about the weather is still on. So the lovely snow we got yesterday gives me an extra day to recover from the touch of cold I got saturday. And I'm not in the mood to slip on ice and break my ankle, so the shoes and spikes will just hav...

Don't stop me now!

I'm not going to complain about the ****** weather we had today, because I can't do anything about that! I can just put on some extra clothing and run anyway. Not running is not an option any more.  Instead I want to give you a little music motivation, ...

Hello 2014!

So now the new year is here! The year of the marathon! I spent New Years Eve on the scene of the crime, along the Thames, watching the fireworks with my best friend. I can't think of a better way to welcome this year and the challanges ahead of me. When...

A cold and my back story!

So, just like last year, christmas brought me a cold. So I might be stumble on the finish line this year too. Just 9,5 km from my goal now! I hope this **** goes away quick, I went to the pharmacy today and bought everything they had lol! So when I'm no...

Merry Christmas everybody!

I have been a bit absent for a few weeks, working in a store is really busy around christmas, so I have been lacking of energy. But I wanted to check in tonight to wish you all a very merry christmas. I hope everybody have a great holiday with people yo...

Soaked but smashed it!

Feel that I have to update here again today, so you know that I came back home without broken legs lol.  It was actually not as bad as I thought with the ice, the rain had taken care of most of it. But it left a nice amount of water on the roads so abou...
