Last seasons preparations

After staying a few days at altitude I am now back again in Oslo again doing the last preparations for the seasons start in Florø and Bergen.

I am trying to be very careful with the total load now. I have done pretty much all the peaking…

work now, I am just waiting for it to hit in as good as the meantime I am getting physioterapy from the Top Athletics center and Klas Eliasson. Just as with running, you have to have talent plus the willingness to learn/work hard in that field also. He is, in my mind, one of the most talented plus openminded physios out there. And of course, he has also been guided by Johnny Høgseth the “prime man” in Norway on muscle tension/muscle overuse. Surprisingly few have adapted this kind of treatment – even though it is extremely effective, much, much more so than “normal” massage therapy. It is a method which not only helps you heal injuries/overuse but also helps you perform better from applying it by adjusting muscular tension. Quite unique..
He was working this weekend to take care of myself plus some of the sprinters. Just routine work, but very important.

Bislett under two weeks away. The meet organizer has put out the startlist for the races now, take a look at it at Extremely strong field with plenty of sub 13 workclass athletes and others capable of going under also. So no time to rest in that race :)) Either way I am looking forward to it. It is time to start now after a long winter of training.

Time for an easy jog around the Sogsvann lake..
