Training at home

The first days after we came back home from St. Moritz we didn't have the best weather to prepare for the Europeans. We had rain and maybe 15°c, we started talking about going to Germany to train there instead, but then the weather changed. For almost two weeks we have had nice, warm and sunny weather. Between 20°c and 30°c, just perfect!

After altitude I always feel good for 3-5 days, then I have some heavy days before I start to feel better again. This time it was not different. Both Erik and I have been able to do some good workouts and now it's not long before the Europeans, but before that we have our National Championships in Athletics. This weekend they will be held in Oslo at the famous Bisslet Stadium, known for good results and many world records. Race walking is on the program for Saturday and we will walk 3.000m and the men 5.000m. I look forward to compete again, but this race will only be a step on the way to Gothenburg.
