Testing out the cooling systems

Today, we have somewhat higher temperatures here. So a good oppurtunity to test out the different cooling vests, hats etc that we have brought with us. So during the run this morning, Leif tried on the hat while riding a bike next to me while I was…

running and this evening durig (before) my intervall training I will try it all on. The hat worked fine so it looks promising. If if gets really hot on the competition day down in Athens you can wear these things very close to the actual race.

Athletes are moving into Athens from here now. The Quatar team left yesterday and today our steepler Jim Svenoey is on the way in. So you can feel the tension building up πŸ™‚ In a week I will be racing the 5000 and five days until going into Athens. Short time, but plenty of time to build the correct mental nerve you have to be in. It is my seventh international championship (two junior) so most of the routines are there already. Plus Leif has been through this many times before also, with the sprinters. So is should be alright.
