out to Nittedal Athletics club, outside Oslo, this evening to do my part of a project we are doing in “Aktives Organisasjon” (www.aktorg.com/the Athletes Organization). We are trying to have the best athletes go out to local clubs once in a while to keep in touch with the young, promising athletes. Too many times, all the elite ones are in the big cities and there is therefore a gap between the young ones and the elite. It is a small thing to do, but it is important to do these things to keep the young ones into athletics.
I will have another treadmill run tomorrow. They are mentally (and physically) challenging and just a thing I have to do – sort of just go through the movements and get it over with. It is all about focus, and I challenge myself when I do not feel up to it – because in a race you never know when you have to move and you need to be prepared to be mentally focused in any given situation.
All well from me,
