You may ask how i am doing with running? On Gotland, i did ran 4 times in 6 days, which is for me a good rate! It was hot as hell, even in the morning and the sea, even if it's beautiful smelt as good as a died dog. This had a good effect on my running, since i wanted to skip that nauseabondous part.

I am getting very slow, i dunno why. Oh maybe it is because i haven't ran intervall since a good month, i should be more addicted to it, but the last runs i made, it was just to make me feel good. Which worked.

Another new is that i bouhgt new confortable shoes. The white&red above are the "fast" shoes, light and the confortable ones are heavier but better made for long running. So please, welcome GT2000 in the familly:

It was really about the time when you see the difference between the old and the new on the picture above. I tested them yesterday and i felt so fast, fast as the wind, as least under the first 500m. I may test them some morning before to go to work this week, just in order to feel serious, but i will see.

 

This was the running telling. Not that much you may think, sorry!

Hello fellow readers!

first of all, and you know it: i am sorry for my absence on here, life has been lived and no time has been found to write some wise words here, if i ever did! But tonight, i've got something extraordinary to tell and this is my two days at Bosön, on a running training.

It began with a sunny drive to stockholm and the discovery of cars stopped on Essingeleden. My good planning failed and i made my entre 15 minutes late. Not good to enter a room with 20 pair of eyes on you, prolly thinking "how hard is it to plan this kind of travel?!?!". I was happy though to recognize one people, but at the same time kind of afraid to make a fool of me in front of people that know me. I have to tell you that i've seen these two days coming with mixed feelings, you wil understand why when you will read about our program.

After an introduction (which i missed the half), it was time for the first running pass: technic. We began with a light warming up in the wood and went to a football place to learn how to run. For me, it was a lots of news feelings and actually, i was feeling quite strong if you ask me. I also discovered that my shoulders could be more free and that i actually can jump high! It was not a very long pass, but it was intense though, because of all the coordination we had to think of. then, shower and dinner.

After the dinner, i was pretty tired, but more because of the week of work than anything else, but i found the motivation to listen to Daniel Ekman, who was our coach during these two days, talking about equipment and stuff. If my summer of running is satisfying, i may give myself some whool clothes for the winter. I also got a good idea to protect myself from the pulsband.

When i arrived to my room, i jumped into my bed and i think i felt asleep after like 10 seconds, looking forward the first pass of the day after: morning jogg.

I was awake early, jumped into my clothes and was super happy to go out to meet the other people for a morning run. The group was composed of a little of every kind of people, with very good runners, some astonishing one running more than 100 km at a time and some other coming from nothern sweden that just went from skiiing to running and some other having goals like running a marathon or a halfmarathn soon. I don't have any goal, except a 10km run at the end of may, but this week end was for me an inspiration more than anything else.

The weather was wonderful and to run with an empty stomach was a good feeling! we ran slowly but i also learnt that it was better to do so than to run like a crazy and not to hold the distans. After this sunny run, breakfast. 

Some hours later, we had a theory pass about pulstraining and so but in between, i went to bed. Micro sleeps are good! This saturday, it was also a lots of dressage (horses) on the Tv, so i had to watch with one eye while the other was sleeping.

The theorypass about puls was really interesting. I know understand how i need to train the intervall and this is not trivial. It demands that you know your body pretty well, else the risk is that you go right into a wall and make more damage to your training than benefits. The lunch was welcome after that but i have to day that it was not the best kitchen in the world, more like school food and it may be so that we eat too much fine food at home M and me? 

The horror pass was the next, at leat my horror pass: strength. I am not strong at all. When it was time to make push ups, i could barelyy take me up 3 cm. plankan was aweful. In other words: i should make more strenght in order to be a little stronger... I began to feel my legs too.

Then, a little rest and affter that, the intervall pass. We warmed up and then ran 3min, 2min, 1min with 1 min stay in between and this 3 times. It was good to have heard about pulstraining before and i tried to use these new knowledges. The results are frapping me:

on the bild above you can see the whole serie: 3min running, 1 min rest, 2 min running, 1 min rest and finallay 1 min running, and this three times. My pulse is the lila line. When you look at the first 3min, the first 2 min, the first 1min and the second 3 min, i managed to have a quite low pulse during the rest period, but afterthe second 2 min (during which i had a little higher pulse), i did not manage to go that low again before to run the second 1 min. Even if the second one minute was not that intense that the second 2 min, i wasn't able either during the following rest to get low. But during the third serie, i took it a little more easily and my resting pulse became low again. Also, we talk of a difference of maybe 4 bmp for the max, no more. And this is what is difficult with intervall.For this time, i was looking at my pulse, so i understood that i went a little too far during the second 2 min running, but i should have taken it easily directly and not wait the next running. But this is good, this means that i have something to work on!

After this intervall training, it was shower and dinner. I took a glas of wine but felt while drinking it that i actually did not want to drink it. What a pity for a saturday evening! and i was missing M too, knowing that he was alone at home and that i had a big room at Bosön, he could have come with me!

This morning when i woke up, i had really pain in my legs. Too hard working out and too many kilometers already. I ate breakfast early and decided to test if i was able to run the long pass. The weather was perfect and the wood inviting, but after 1.5km, my knee did hurt in a downhill and my right leg too, so it was just for me to make a u turn and take me back to the hotel. A shame, but it was almost 18 km of running in 2 days, which is a lot for my little and becoming old body.

After a shower and good bye to the people, i drove back to Linköping, with dreams of running in the wood next week end. I did learn a lot about pulse, our body, how to run, and it was very inspiring. These two days taught me too that i can forget to plan a week of runningin Portugal, without more training before. I even was taught to run slowly during the long pass and we got some kind of program for the week, which gives a good start with a new motivation, but without a goal.

And one another important thing: if you don't put some good trainings memories on your bank account, it will be difficult to take it off during the hard times.

That was Bosön, in my bad english! :)

yeah for me, i followed the plan! liters of sweat are gone but i have a big smile on my lips now. 

Under this time, M was suffering from the swedish trainsystem on his way to Ljungby and as every week, i go to bed very early on monday and tuesday in order to make the time go faster until M comes back. Tomorrow, i am off to Stockholm and wednesday, there are some housewify things that are waiting for me, like laundry, buy food and so. But what wouldn't i do to spend quality time with M when he will be back :)

and o smuch toughts as well! I have been dreaming (and i still am) about somthing big. No need to tell that no everyone is on my quick train this time, but let's see!

 

I also have been running the first 10km in a row for this year. 61min. The old shape is far away but i am still happy that i achieved that! I even registred to a runing camp at the end of april, three days with a lots of running and a coach on the back. It's motivating me for now, because i need to come there in some ok condition. And the best part: the week after the camp, i need t rest :D

 

I also have been playing squash two times this week end, and it was one hour today. I will feel my pain tomorrow i think, maybe i will need some help to go out of my bed.

 

Yesterday, we went to listen to Mando Diao and their swedish songs. It was an expensive show, when you look at the price per minute (400kr for 60 min on stage) but the music was pleasant. Sad swedish poems. The best sond was the last of course, and here you go:

 

 

but maybe you recongnize the band better with this song:

 

or this song: (dad, listen to it, you will like it!)

ok, time for a shower now and then some food!! :)

Saturday morning, snowstorm outside, i can sit comfortably in the soffa because i already did mine for today: i was outside around 9 and took a "run" for 7km. I won't tell you the time, since it was very slowly, but for my defense, it is not easy to run in 10 cm snow. I wanted to make a long run all this week, but i needed time and light for that and it was only this morning that it happened. 7km is not so long actually, i was a much better runner some years ago but you know, small steps will also take one to the moon. Plus that i now have two squash partner: the prodige H and my lovely M. We made M and i our first game this thursday and it seems that it will be in our calender every week. It was funny.

 

For the rest of the week, i have been inspired and somehow, i will make some steps. We also went to the cinema to watch Django unchained and this was funny. The funniest was to noticed that no one in the room did understand the litterature reference between Dumas and D'Artagnan before Di Caprio did. I wonder if the reactions were different for a french public.

 

We finished the evening with a light dinner and a glas of wine in a little restaurant/bar on the main street in Linköping. This was a little sad that we only were like 10 people in here, the mood was a little cold but the menu, the service and the prices were really nice. Maybe we should go there more often.

 

I don't really know what we have on the schedule for today. Some laundry and such boring things of course, but then, we should maybe mostly watch films at home or so. I received a second book that i ordered from Zigmunt Bauman, so i have something to read and maybe i will become a little more smart? i can always try :)

 

song of the day:

I apologize for the post of yesterday. This dentist did take initiative and took my teeth off! I sat longer for the X-ray pictures than for the rest and I am now half paralyzed in the face. Nice to have discussion at work like that and I hope it will be ok when it will wake up later today but for now, I feel released!

Hello people!

 

First monday of november, almost done! The last part of it will be a piece of cake, i've already done my part.

 

We went to the cathedrale of Linköping yesterday and listened a little bit to Mozarts Requiem. It would have been better if we would have come earlier: the church was full of people and we were close to the doors. I like very much the requiem, probably because it's the only classical piece that i know somehting of and i remember learning a lots of the lyrics in latin when i was like 14 or 15. I found it cool.

 

 

We did not stay that long because of the bad acoustic. Next time, we will come earlier!

 

M took the train back home and as every sunday evening i am spending alone at home after a lovely M week end, i try to go to bed soon, in order not to think too much.

 

I woke up pretty early this morning and was at work around 7, after a nice morning walk. I put my bycicle in the garage for the winter and walk to work nowadays, it is nice. I manage to listen to some pod cast and enjoy this way to wake up. I went home around 16.30, it was all dark outside. I picked up my swimming suit and went to the swimming pool, first time in Linköping. It was kind of hard to swim properly there, it was people everywhere and Swedes are totally unable to swim otherwise than like a goldfish. Pretty annoying but i managed to make 1km without drawning anyone.

 

The best part of the swimming during winter in Sweden is to go to the sauna after the shower. I really enjoyid the time in there, mostly this time because of the teenagers girls doing the same thing and talking about each other. Also, girls are not nice to each other. It was also a poor little boy (in the womens room) showering since he was with his mother. The poor little boy did not want to come into the sauna, so he was standing under the shower under the whole timer his mother was bathing sauna. I guess he was really bored, looking how the water was running on him. 

 

I came home and cooked a pie, which is almost ready, so have fun tonight, i will have a nice meal now :)

Also, i don't get it. As well as i know that i hate to eat carrots, i also now know that i hate to gym with a lots of people indoor. I tested it tonight and even if it sounded great on the papper - afropowerdance - it was awfull. I was expecting that:

 

 

and i got that:

 

( at least when i was looking at myself in the mirror)

 

It was a lot of catching the sun, flushing watter, playing the drums, making the bird, jump on the right, jump on the left and of course, some monkey walk. I was already looking at the clock after 15 minutes and this hour was long. I dunno, it may be something stronger than my mind, but i don't enjoy at all the fact to make ridiculous moves in a room with 20 other people, pretending you're an animal or something. Plus that the teacher had no rythm, well not that much.

 

So with almost no sweat left in this room (yeah, it may be another thing i don't get...) i decided that it was my last time in this course. I may test other maybe, but not this anymore! done! I enjoy much more an hour of running!
