Snorkling in Croatia

Snorkling is fantastic. To hold your breath and dive to the bottom of the ocean, is a great and demanding challenge, especially if you go more than 5 meters down. Then you have to start thinking about equalize because of the pressure.

This is from Mimice in Croatia. It is not the Red Sea with multible diversity of beautiful life forms, but the water in Croatia is crystal clear and has the perfect temperature. It is a perfect place for beginners in snorkling. Especially for kids. The three of mine has done it in 2013 and 2016. 2017 we did it in Pelion, Greece, witch also is a fantastic place to do so.

Remember to pay more for better equipment.

After some good snorkling, this is just fantastic.

Can´t wait until next time…

Så gør det dog!

Udfordr dig selv – Spring ud i det.

Uanset hvad du vælger at udfordre sig selv med mentalt og fysisk, så er det vigtigt, at det er realistiske mål, som du har mulighed for at forberede dig godt til. Så undgår du dårlige, deprimerende og skadesgivende oplevelser, som ikke fremmer din livskvalitet på nogen måde. Det skal du derfor naturligvis undgå. Opsæt et mål for dig selv og ellerhelst sammen med en god ven, som du ved ville kunne gennemføre det sammen med dig. Herefter kan i planlægge et længere træningsforløb sammen, så I sammen kan komme i mål i den anden ende.

Måske kunne et Nordic Race løb være lige noget for dig og din makker.

Hvis I gerne vil have et udfordrende løb for hele kroppen, og ikke kun have gang i bentøjet, så kunne et Nordic Race løb være aktuelt for dig. Det er typisk et 5 km løb med omkring 30 forhindringer, som udfordrer dig på fysisk i hele kroppen og mentalt.

Måske ses vi til dette Nordic Race i Amager Strandpark d. 18. maj ;o)

God træning. Ses.

Motion i den mørke tid

Det er ikke altid lige nemt at holde gejsten oppe til motion i den mørke og køligere tid, og det er helt naturligt. Man får nemlig en helt naturlig trang til at hygge, putte og spare på energien. Desuden er der også en større trang til at indtage føde og endda af den mere usunde slags. Ydermere er der også juletiden at slås med.

Men du ved det godt. Du bør komme afsted, og det lurer i baghovedet som en dårlig samvittighed. “Jeg skal nok få det gjort. Bare ikke i dag. I morgen bliver det”. 

Nej! Det bliver heller ikke i morgen. Det skal gøres I DAG.

Når du er færdig med dagens opgaver eller lige er stået op, og du mærker at energiniveauet er helt i bund, så er det, at du sørger for at få drukket et glas vand (gerne med en halv friskpresset økologisk citron)  og siger til dig selv, at kravet til motionen er bare en gåtur. Når forventningen blot er en gåtur, så er det noget nemmere at leve op til, og så kan du derudfra udvikle din fysiske udfoldelse, når du er kommet afsted. Det kan være, når du har gået et stykke tid, så får du lyst til at lunte eller powerwalke. Det kan også være, at du bare vil gå i samme tempo, og det er fint. Sådan kan det fx også være med svømning. Tag i svømmehallen med forventningen om wellness. Dejligt bad, sauna og måske spa. Så kan det jo være, når du er kommet i svømmehallen, at det udvikler sig til nogle baner svømning. Det samme kan du gøre i fitnesscentret.

Det handler blot om ikke at stille for høje forventninger til dig selv, planlæg at du kommer afsted, og så gør det.

Find den naturlige energi og lyst til bevægelse. Hvis du har mistet den, må du tvinge dig til at finde den igen.

I am going to be a Spartan

Jeg har efterhånden løbet mange forskellige løb, også løb med forhindringer, det man kalder OCR (Obstacle Course Racing). Det er en sjovere og mere udfordrende måde at løbe på, og så giver det træning til hele kroppen. Det stiller noget højere krav til alle fem træningsområder: kredsløb, styrke, koordination, smidighed og mentalitet.

For en uge siden besluttede min ældste broder og jeg at træne os op til at blive SPARTANER. Spartan Races er ret hårde udgaver af OCR løb rundt om i verden. Disse er dog også inddelt i kategorier med forskellige længder og antal forhindringer.

I starten af maj 2019 stiller vi op i den åbne gruppe på SUPER distancen på over 13 km med mere end 25 forhindringer i Madrid. Så er det bare med at komme igang med at træne eller rettere for mit vedkommende holde træningen ved lige, for jeg tror bestemt jeg er i form til at kunne gennemføre med en ret god tid p.t.

Det er forøvrigt super fedt at rejse rundt i verden til forskellige løb. Det er en god måde at komme ind under huden på ikke kun de lokale, men også på de mennesker der kommer fra hele verden til løbene. Man kan tydelig mærke fællesskabet omkring det at vi alle stiller op sammen til et bestemt løb, også selvom vi egentlig er konkurrenter. Der er gensidig respekt og vi har en fælles ballast, vi naturligt og åbent kan snakke om.

Der er mange forskellige forhindringer, der udfordrer dig på enhver tænkelig måde.

Jeg har nu tænkt mig at vinde det løb til maj, så derfor intensiverer jeg min træning på alle mulige måder. Bedre og mere varieret konditionstræning med interval trailløb, hårdere og oftere styrketræning med forskellige “kropsløft” og koordinationstræning. Jeg vil løbende holde dig informeret om min SPARTAN – træning her på bloggen.

Skulle du også have fået blod på tanden til at blive startaner, så kig med her og på

Sweat Is Dripping

Sweat is dripping,

I am in and out of my zone,

my feet

in my running shoes are tipping.

I am on my own.

Love the flow in my body.

Blood taste is my friend.

Everybody, anybody, somebody, nobody

but me,

I see,

I got to be

my own best friend.

Nobody is meer than me,

and nobody is youer than you.

Pushing Your Limits

Billedet indeholder sandsynligvis: en eller flere personer, folk, der står, ocean, friluftsliv, natur og vand

I just love trail running. It is much more exciting running off road than running on a plain  road. Here you have the fantastic nature, good variation and lots of challenges and obsticles.

At this Røsnæs Trail Run 21 km with 600 hight meters in the Western part of Zealand in Denmark I pushed myself to the very limit. I became nr. 3 in 2 hours and 5 minutes in my age group. I had been in hard training from spring until now and lost 5 kg´s. With other words I am in great shape. And you can be too in every way, not only in sports.

Billedresultat for pushing your limits

Everyone has dreams and goals. However, very few people actually achieve them. This is because majority of us let our limits hold us back. These limits take various forms. Examples are physical inability, doubt, fear or a negative past. When you meet your personal limits, you feel resistance. This makes everything feel much harder to accomplish. Many people around the world are unable to hold on when it gets to this point. Therefore, they give up. It is important to learn how to beat your limits and overcome them. This enables you to achieve your goals. Here is how to push beyond your limits and achieve your biggest goals.

Adjust your mindset

The mind is the greatest weapon in our personal arsenals. It is capable of any thought hence can help us to accomplish anything we want. For many, it convinces them to quit when the path gets too challenging. Our minds instinctively protect us. Therefore, when we face imminent hardship, the first response is to give up. If you become used to accepting this, you will become a quitter. If done regularly, this can create a limit and keep you within it. To achieve your goals, you have to overcome the desire to give up. This can be accomplished by looking up to someone whose resilience you admire such as your role model, a movie star, your parents or your mentor. Watch how they overcome the desire to give up. Then you can visualize yourself doing the same every time that you face hardship and feel like giving up. You will find yourself holding on for longer, training your mind to become more optimistic and eventually become strong enough to overcome your limits.

Embrace bigger challenges than you think you are capable of

The fundamental activity required in pushing beyond your limits is to take on challenges that are harder than what you are used to. If you do not push past your capability regularly, you get stuck within your comfort zone and do not experience any growth. This causes stagnation and eventually despair. Therefore, enthusiastically embrace challenges that are bigger, harder and more complex than what you are used to. This will help you to get comfortable being outside your comfort zone and get you closer to your dreams.

Visualize yourself at the next level

One of the most important activities to perform so as to push past your limits is to stay focused. Visualization is a handy tool that you can use towards this effect. You need to focus on what you want so as to get motivated in pursuing your plan despite your imagined limits. Many times, we know where we have been and where we currently are. However, we rarely know exactly where we need to go. Take the time to imagine where you want to be by a certain time in future. Visualize this every single morning when you get up. This will motivate you to go out of your comfort zone and achieve your goals.

Establish clarity about your next step

If you have a great goal, then your path will be unclear. This causes you not to know exactly what the future holds. It can cause a fear of the unknown. If this fear is big enough, you can easily give up on your passionate dreams and pursue more familiar plans for example getting a stable job. It is essential to have clarity for your goals but you do not have to see all the way down the path. All you need to see is the next step or two. To do this, you need to have clear milestones or list of checkpoints. You also need the tools required to achieve this step. A strict timeline is also essential for success. Last but not least, you need a support system to keep you focused. This is a manageable way to handle a big dream. Therefore, work to establish a clear plan of action for the next step and follow up on it. This will help you to gradually overcome your limits and achieve your goals.

Eliminate your weaknesses

It is important to know that where there are weaknesses, there are limits. Each one of us has specific strengths and weaknesses. Weaknesses take away from our strengths. They deduct as we make efforts to add. They are a leak in the ship of your life. Many motivational speakers encourage us to focus on our strengths and ignore our weaknesses. However, ignoring a problem will not make it go away. We have to face our weaknesses and transform them. We can either turn them into strengths or eliminate them completely. This is the only way to overcome our limits and achieve our biggest goals. It is a painful process with lifetime benefits.
