Almost too long. What has been going on then?
Well, I am training a lot:
Monday – IntervallFlex at F&S
Tuesday – Running
Wednesday – Boxing
Thursday – Running
Friday – like it sounds FREEday
Saturday – Boxing
Sunday – Long distance run
I have also been at two Ultra running training weekends. Saturday-sunday. Third on the way (29-30 March)
What about swimming and biking until Ironman?
I got a plan I promise.
Last year I started to swim open water in June. And I feel that I don´t need to put that much energy on swimming.
I´m happy to swim 3,8 km in 1h 30min.
But biking then? Well, maybe this weekend? I miss My Lady a LOT and I hope she misses me.
I have a plan here also, to just get 110km+ before IM.
Things I learned last year:
1. You get stronger running muscles and stronger upper body by boxing.
2. Stick to your plan
3. Experiment all the ”food/energi” on long biking sessions and runs.
4. Keep running
5. Bike in rain and bad weather – witch I did last year and oBoy what a good motivation boost.
6. Do not panic
7. Smile, SMILE!!
8. Buy a GPS-tracker so loved ones can find me if something happens on the lonely long distance trainings.
9. Buy a new wetsuit!!!
10. Smile smile smile and see the goal.
In the pic it´s me running super fast to the goal in IM Kalmar!
What a happiness!
Today was a day I felt BIG YES! Because I was worried about the upcoming ultra marathon training weekends.
So I run 10K and felt good.
When I run long distance, it is like I´m meditating. My breathing is controlled and smooth.
Everything just klicks. Love it!
I’ve been thinking how I will manage my long-distance races and training sessions with the paleo inspired diet.
No one has been able to answer my questions until now!
Johan Steene eats LCHF (”kind of” paleo diet) and I’ll take inspiration from him that managed to find the balance.
Here is an example that I aim for to find this food-intake-balance he write about on his blogg.
”In the practice rounds, I have very rarely with me water and even more rarely calories. But my longest rounds of 30km and then I do not think it is needed. Sweden it is often so cool so it’s only on the hottest days of summer, I need bring a water bottle on the longer sessions. ” (http://bitihop.se/naring/)
NO WATER under 30K? Wow! This I find interesting because when I racing Ironman so I was drinking to much water. Listen, learn and test!
You know the best part?
He will come to one of the ultra marathon training weekends!
You know the crazy part?
He will start (soon, today) a race ”Transomania” 285 km Non stop in max. 100 hours
80 km of mountains
65 km of canyons
145 km of sand dunes and wadis (track through the desert)
Thats super mega WOW! Meditation 2000! To follow him: (http://chrono.geofp.com/tom2014/v2/)
While we were washing we had time to take a shorty distance run.
I don´t really remember when I were running the last time.
I think it´s time to start running again. Me and my man have this crazy Ultra trail marathon in Skåne, called Kullamannen!
Kullamannen ultra marathon is +53Km! If you start to search on youtube or on the web you will found some crazy videos from Kullamannen. For example:
What was I thinking?! o.O
Oh well, an one day adventure with training, so why not?
Are you coming?
