In Heusden, preparing for Saturday + 5000 meters

After a period of very intense physiotherapy I have arrived Heusden Belgium getting ready for this weekends 5000 metes there. The field is quite nice with a good variation of runners, ranging from a couple of sub 13 guys, plenty 13.00-13.15 and then up to the 13.20s.

That should fit nicely now. I am just hoping for a good race – with the same feeling as Rome but with no lower leg problems.

Conditions here are usually excellent. But hopefully a little bit cooler than yesterday, it was 36 degrees when we arrived Brussels! And still 32 at 9.30 in the evening. It felt much,much warmer than Rome a week ago. This weekend it is suppose to drop abit so should be fine. Either way, I handle warm weather quite well so usually never a problem 🙂

I travelled down here with Bjørnar who will run the steeple plus Ketil Tømmernes – the federation chief. It will  be me + Bjørnar from Norway in the meeting here plus  a 1500 meter runner. All hoping for some good times on the fast Heusden track.

We stay in the city of Hasselt, about 1 hour drive from Brussels. It is one of those Belgian cities with a suburban kind of atmosphere. Quiet, yet very urban. A good place to relax a few days before a meeting. This afternoon a threshold session before one easy run tomorrow morning + rest in the afternoon.

All well from Heusden!
