Good training and nice weather in the Alps

We have had fantastic weather during almost all of the training camp. Sun, sun, sun and nice and warm. It has been more windy than the years before, but it hasn't had any influence on our training. We have done a lot of good training up here and both Erik and I have been able to do all the training Stephan planned for us. My legs were very tired last week, but I managed to take it easy during training on Thursday and Friday and then I was ready for hard and long training again. In St.Moritz we are lucky to be able to do cold "baths" in the river Inn, it is good for my legs when I am tired or if I feel that a muscle or tendon is a little sore. As you can see on the picture below it is very cold!!! This week I have been running twice, only 30 min each time and on the grass, but I am very happy to run again! On Wednesday I was very happy that Peter Korcok and Matej Toth from Slovakia, had an easy workout and therefore I could train together with them during my whole 20km workout.

The good and warm weather is not just good for training. It's also good for barbecuing! In and around St.Moritz there are a lot of nice places to barbeque. We had a nice evening at the Lej Marsj together with German athletes and coaches. This was one of the few evenings without soccer on TV, almost all other days we were busy watching the games from the Soccer World Cup or the Track and Field European Cup. Many athletes came together for public viewing at the Hotel Laudinella!

In two days we are going back home to Norway. It has been a very good training camp!
