Nordic Race Refshaleøen

Embrace The Pain……Again It was time for the Nordic Race again. This time at Refshaleøen i Copenhagen. A great race with lots of demanding but fun obstacles. I completed 27 of them and the last 3 I had to do penalty rounds. I am satisfied. This was a great training race for the Spartan Beast in Berlin in late september. Check out some of the great obstacles. This swing was grazy This one took time for the ones who could…. I am glad that the climbing rope was in the beginning of the race. If you are afraid of heights (I am), this one was challenging. The pipeline swing. Results from my struggles. See you there some time.   Love,...

Spartan Race getting closer

Time goes by…Follow follow follow. The training for the Spartan Race Berlin is in the final episode. The training is intense. There are no injuries (7,9,13). Feeling strong, respecting the restitution time. The mindset is good, I am 100 % motivated for this race. I do not only want to finish the race….I WANT TO WIN IT (in my age group). I am dedicated, devoted and dangerous… The weight says 82 kg and I feel like flying…. Time for a long run to the ocean for a swim and back again. After 7 km run in 30 degrees celcius, it was just fantastic to jump in the ocean for a cooling swim. There is one big disadvantage getting thinner in...

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...

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...
