Saturday Apr 6 #

12 PM

Running warm up/down 28:40 [3] 4.9 km (5:51 / km) +80m 5:25 / km

Orienteering 38:34 [4] 5.6 km (6:53 / km) +180m 5:56 / km

Started off well, but came unstuck on a pit in some absolute shite green stuff. Dropped 2-2.5mins, then another 1min over the next two controls as I worked to get my mojo back.
Back into things, but another tired mistake on the 3rd last dropped me another minute.
Very disappointed and frustrated after missing Tio camp and the selection race last week as a direct consequence of work, and still not being in the right physical or mental shape for this selection race either. But also, full credit to Jo and Kine who had great runs. It just made mine look that much worse ;)

Had a fairly crap afternoon as everything just caught up with me from the last weeks.

So this week's job is to turn things around for next weekend and the final selection race.

Missioning 45:00 [0]

Epic game of capture the flag with coolchicks on Rødsberget. Plenty of chasing and being chased. I think we (red team) won, but then we coudln't find some of our own cones when it came to collecting the remaining ones in, so... :,) Great fun.

Some good sprints and hill intervals in there, should have worn my GPS and HR monitor.

Running 41:00 [4] 7.6 km (5:24 / km)

Track session with Elena.
2x800, 6x400, 6x200, 6x100.
1min breaks between the 800s and 600s. 45s between the 200s and 100s. 3min break between the different sets.

Faster than I've run in a while eh. Felt it too!
2.47 for the 800s, 82s for the 400s, 36-37s for the 200s and 16-17s for the 100s. Nice and consistent for the most part.

Tuesday Apr 2 #


Up to Lillehammer on the 7am train. Afternoon marking lines out in 50-70cm of snow and organising logistics to clear the snow for the seismic survey crew. Luckily hard enough on top for me to walk without sinking too many times.

Client had somehow given the go ahead for both seismic surveying and borehole sampling to be undertaken simultaneously...they obviously don't understand how seismic investigations work! The borehole guys seemed happy enough to take breaks while we measure though.

We measured last week that we walk anywhere between 10 and 20km each day in the field. Most of that while carrying various equipment, be it cables, electrodes, hammers, measurement devices etc. Today was a half day, and just marking sticks and the GPS for me. So an easy day out comparitively.

Monday Apr 1 #

Morning Ellipse with Kine for company for the first part.

Haha, not keen on the arm exercises this week. Still a bit smashed.
6 PM

Running 34:30 [3] 6.2 km (5:34 / km) +100m 5:09 / km

Skjog with Elena after strength.

Ankle is still not the happiest :( Went over on it pretty badly at Kvillbyns, and let's be honest, it hasn't had much rest since. Trying to stick to running on even surfaces and more ellipse than usual.

Sunday Mar 31 #

11 AM

Running 1:39:00 [3] 15.0 km (6:36 / km) +450m 5:44 / km

Long run down the fjørd with Jenny. Views as pretty as ever and zero ice. There was even a moment where I considered taking off my jacket and running in short sleeves! That moment passed pretty quickly though...

No chance finding of my car key unfortunately.
