Going into a training period now

I have now started my last heavy training period before Sydney. Because I needed the qualifying mark of 13.20 to run there, I had to get in an early “sub” peak in late June. That is when I ran in Rome. I kept that peak until the Bislett Games,…

through the European Cup. Now I feel it is time to rebuild. I have raced every month except March this year, and to be best prepared for Sydney I have to do some top-up training weeks, to ensure a steady buildup before the races down there. Then I can taper once I arrive Sydney (will go down the 9th of Sept) If I used August to only race, that would not be possible. I am not into the first week of heavy mileage and will continue that for another week until I start some more speed oriented work.

Just a short report from me, here in Sandefjord,
