800 meter repeats with special guest :)

I did some 800 meter repeats yesterday to get some hard work done before the European Championships where the prelims are Friday and finals Sunday in the 5000 meters.

My manager, Ståle Jan, came along to test lactate acid. And he brought and…

interesting person ; Are Nakkim, Norwegian record holder in the 10 000 meters (27.32) and 2nd place finisher in the European Championships 5000 meters in 1990. He currently lives and works in Singapore, but was briefly home in Norway. So he stayed for the session and we had a long talk afterwards. It is nice to talk to a person who has had a long career and been there before.

I am leaving for Munich in the beginning of next week and looking forward to coming down there. I like the Championship atmosphere, it makes you sharp before the races.

I will try and update from down there if possible and keep you informed.

All fingers crossed ! 🙂
