Session with Amir. We spent the first 45 minutes working on (mostly) lower body flexibility, range of motion, and strength. I am inflexible, weak, and lopsided, so this is going to be really good. Then we spent about 10 minutes on pull-up stuff which caused far more muscle shaking and fatigue than everything that came before. I did some stretching to finish up.

Training #3, wore studs this time. Wasn't looking forward to 20km in O-Rocs but it was fine and it would not have been possible to run in non-dobbies.
Similar route to training #2 from Movatn to home but with more trails this time. Lots of ice, thanks to a super warm Friday and a cold enough Friday night.
Stopped to stretch my hips briefly at 10km because I felt something on the right side. Felt fine the rest of the way, phew.
Finally registered for the Sandsjöbackatrail 30k. It's unclear to me how long it actually is. They call it 30k/20mi (as if those are the same...) and I thought it was closer to 34k based on the elevation profile. I think it's best to assume it runs a bit long, which means I'm going to want to get in at least one 25k run before then. Boston people?
Initial free session with Amir in the gym. It was supposed to be a Norwegian hour (45 min) but I was there for 75 min because we're both so chatty and excited. Signed up for a lot of personal training hours with him. It's going to be good.
