The Toga Party

We went to a Toga party in Vejby close to Tisvildeleje in Northern Sealand. It had been some 30 years ago since I had been to the last Toga Party. This time it was at a 20 year birthday. A daughter of some of your good friends. They are always having good parties. Sheets and leave wreaths on and then off we went to the party with great people, food and ancient greek sport challenges. One of them was archery. Remark the one legged style. A sure winner… The toga has its roots in garments worn by the Etruscans and the Greeks. The Greeks had worn a lengthy cloak called the himation, and the Etruscans, early inhabitants of the Italian peninsula, had adapted this into...

Walk With Dog

When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are. Are the dog actually thinking are is it just learned things upon it´s basic instincs? I know that a dog can figure things out. It can certainly learn lots of things and it can learn to understand great parts of our language too. A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. A dog is always there for you and it is happy to see you when you come back. It is hard to find a greater devotion from any other creature. It is loyal, faithful and gives so much love. Yes it want´s your attention, but it also gives you...

Run Swim Run

I know I am very special about running in the heat. I love it. I love when the sweat is running from me and I can feel that my skin is doing what it can to cool me down. But before I go for a run in the heat I am very aware that I have to drink a lot before I go. If I run less than 20 km I usually don´t have water with me. If you are the type to dehydrate, feel dizzy or uncomftable in the heat, don´t do it. Run early morning or in the evening. The weather has been just great in this weak and perhaps that is why I have intensified my activity...

Exercising With Isaac Newton

When you exercise you really can feel that you are up against some physical laws. Some of these laws the great Sir Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March) was the father of. He was an english mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian and author who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time, and a key figure in the scientific revolution. His book “Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (“Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy“), first published in 1687, laid the foundations of classical mechanics.  When you exercise Newton is always with you. If you should feel to alone, you can always have that in mind ;o). Let us look upon his first law.   E.g. when you are running, it takes...

Holiday And Training

If you really love to train or being physically active, then it is usually no problem to have a healthy holiday. If not you are most likely to skip the training and just eat, drink and relax at little more than you use to. It doesn´t have to be like that. Life is more beautiful and powerful with contrasts. When you have worked hard, you love rest, when you are cold, you love the heat etc…. You have to sow, before you can reap. No Pain No Gain. You Must GIVE to GET. And directly translated from a danish saying: “You have to provide, before you can enjoy”. and yes you know that you enjoy to relax more when you...
