Nordic Race Hasle Bakker 2019
Set goals. Have a direction, something you want to achieve. Be curious on life. Try new things. Believe that you can. You are worth it….You can do it.
Tomorrow I am going for Jutland to be with my family before I am going to The Nordic Race Hasle Bakker saturday. It is my first Nordic Race so I am pretty excited if it is just as good as the Spartan Races.
This is just a part of my long term training for the Spartan Beast in Berlin in ultimo September, but of course I am trying to win this one in my age group. I am excited to see the level of my shape so far. I still have two kgs to loose. Dawn Burger and French Fries this evening…hmmm….I have lost some of my food disciplin.
My shape is fallen quite a bit since my Spartan Race Super in Madrid in the beginning of May, but that is just naturally after a very hard training periode up to the Race.
This week I have I have just done a little strength training, 25 km mountainbiking each day and 250 m open water swimming. No running…..because I want to be a very “hungry” runner saturday.
If you start exercising, your brain recognizes this as a moment of stress. As your heart pressure increases, the brain thinks you are either fighting the enemy or fleeing from it. To protect yourself and your brain from stress, you release a protein called BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor). This BDNF has a protective and also reparative element to your memory neurons and acts as a reset switch. That?s why we often feel so at ease and things are clear after exercising and eventually happy.
My favorite open water swimming spot
Bring on the fight
I am not fleeing
I am beeing
