Another very hard Monday session the other day. With great variation of speed, length and continious recovery (quite fast running), a 50-60 minute session can bring be extremely challenging physically and mentally.

Therefore, it is on those sessions it is the most important for me to have people on the [...]
For the third season in a row I am off to Southern Europe for the Eastern training stay. This time I will start with a few days in Barcelona before continuing the stay in Italy.

In Italy I will join the group from SK Vidar for the third year [...]
I am well into training here in Italy now, in the small city around 2 hours drive south of Milano. Monday was an AT session and today is a long track session on the nearby Mondo track.

Training here is good. Nice, soft paths around the lakes surrounding the city. [...]
Plus back to school again and more on the skeletal muscle system, ligaments and the working of the different systems of movement. Lots of reading now, before going into a period of tests and exams going from the very beginning of June up until around the 15th.
A very nice session in Mantova yesterday before going [...]
Nice to be back on the Sognsvann track again – after the snow has melted. First track session there on Monday, a longer one of 12 km in racing flats at increasingly faster pace with short recoveries.

Training is going fine. On Monday, another long track session that Øystein joined in [...]
Some quite cold days here again, so back on the treadmill to get full effects on the training sessions. So progressive 1 minute intervalls on the treadmill today with short recoveries. It gives you long periods of high heart rate while at the same time keeping your muscular system sharp until the end without lowering [...]
Except for the winters sprint sessions, I have yet to use the spikes on trainings this year. But hopefully by the middle of next week they will be tried on for a session or two So preparing myself for that – and making sure that the legs are ready for it. Plenty of [...]
A bit over a week until I am leaving for St Moritz, right after school exams are finished. The good thing about St Moritz, is that I am standarized trails/running distances from all seasons since 2000. The only other place I used to have that was in Kenya – until they started putting up fences [...]
I am heading off to St Moritz tomorrow morning for the altitude stay there. So last track session at sea level this evening – some progressive 400s before taking it easy tomorrow + travelling down there.
