PR. As simple as that.

Put on  We are the champions and start reading. At least this is what I am listening while writing and this is how I feel now. My first 10k happened to be during a race. My first race. Novemberflåset 2013, in Stromstad, Sweden. 59 min. I was running for about 2 months, but never made it quite to 10. 7 was max. I ran it in my FiveFingers. During 2014 I had Sentrumsløpet with an official result of 53:08. In October 2014 I had Hytteplanmila, one of the nicest races I had ever run. Here I had my PR with 50:56, that lasted till Monday, 29th of August 2016,  when I managed 50:43. Today, I went out with a strong motivation, stronger Read more

Hello soreness my old friend!

I had prepared 2 articles. 1 about the weekend and my trip to Ciucas mountains where I went to see the half marathon path, from Ciucas X3. The other was about how do I feel at week 8 from my training program. I don´t need an article to say that I can just mention it in 1 word: DUMB. I feel dumb and sore. At CiucasX3 , where I am volunteering and by the way … if anyone that runs the ultra version, which is 105 km, in the most remote corner of your path, somewhere far far far away, there I will be to cheer you up, and kind of that is it. The place is so far away Read more

3 weeks

3 weeks in my training plan made by Paulo from The Real Green Scene. I can see improvements. I managed to lower my 10k time from 58 to 53. I am now 3 min away from my PB from 2014. Of course it is not 100% coming from the training plan as I started training before, but it helped. I lost weight. I am now around 90 kg. Not sure how much, but trust me I know I lost weight. I am loosing my clothes on the street and I needed to punch an extra hole in my belt. I am more disciplined. Combined with the Aikido training twice a week in order for me to manage all my trainings Read more

Paulo says, part 2

As I said in previous article, I have a more professional approach to running and I reached out to my friend Paulo, to help me out regain my form. In between us here, running now after so long, and seeing that I can´t maintain 5:30/km for more than 2-3 km, thinking that while in Norway 5:30 was the pace I was relaxing in, it is rather frustrating. But, if life taught me something, and it did, it is to take it slowly. And pick my fights as some good friend of mine would tell. So, I asked Paulo, and him, being at the beginning of his road as nutritionist, personal trainer, said: yes, you can be my guinea pig. I Read more

Paulo says!

I know it was Simon, but he is busy with other stuff. I am working with Paulo. Let me first introduce to you my Portuguese friend. I have a Norwegian friend that I have presented in the beginning and now it is time for my Portuguese friend. He is Paulo Buchinho. The guy behind The Real Green Scene. I met Paulo in Norway, while we were both trying to learn Norwegian. Meanwhile I don´t have to try, while he still is having headaches because of Norwegian lessons. Anyway, leaving aside how we met, we kept contact since. That was in the beginning of 2015 , when I was not running due to my injury. By the time we met, Paulo Read more
