The track clear for snow now

Just in time for the spring preparations the running track by the Sognsvann lake is now clear for snow all around even in lane one. Plus the Sogsvann lake itself (which has a 3.3 km cinder lap around) is 95 % clear. Which is great because this…

coming week is the first “stable” one after the arrival back from altitude. I have done some sessions of the road and some on the treadmill but I am anxious to get on the soft cinder again.

It is something about the spring and running. Especially here in Norway where you have days of almost no sun during the winter. The last few years I have been either in Kenya or Bolivia in the spring. But this year I have done some changes in that (with much more altitude in the winter and a bit of a longer period at home this spring) It feels refreshing to go outside on a run. You can see the snow melting week by week. People are happy and the general atmosphere helps you get out on those hard runs.

Tomorrow will be some 1 minute repeats that will gradually be transferred into the running track with spikes.
