Finetuning for tomorrow

Still trying to do my best to recover in time for tomorrows race at the Bislett stadium. Lots of massage and icebaths trying to use every hour the best I can as I still have a little bit to go.

– The 2004 Bislett Games, in Bergen with 13.08 –

I have seen many predictions for tomorrows race in terms of times, but all I can say is that last weekends race in Heusden was done under absolutely perfect conditions and it is hard to know what to expect especially as I am in a very important recovery phase after the last 5000 meters. A 13.07 takes some guts out of you for a few days.  Either way I will do my absolute best to perform as  good as I can and sell myself to the highest price possible at every single step out there. The Bislett crowd deserves that.

Easy run this morning with Susanne (Wigene) who will be running the 3000 meters tomorrow. Quite interesting in terms of Norwegian interests. After her win in Heusden last week she can probably be right in the top there all the way in this time also, as the field is quite similar. Plus we have Andreas Thorkildsen in the javelin as well. So should bring out the Bislett atmosphere needed for nice results there.

Great memories from Bislett – especially last year so looking forward to it.

Well,time for some more rest now..I will try and update tomorrow from the race day as well,

From 20 C and no rain in Oslo.
