My season so far

After my long break with no racewalking during autumn 2007 I am very pleased with my season so far. The only thing I was not very happy with, was the fact that I could not go to Cheboksary for the World Cup. My goal has always been to match and compete with the best in the world. I am definetely looking forward to compete with the Russians and Chinese and all the other girls in Beijing in about two months.

This season we have not focused on fast times at all. Our main focus has been on the work on staying healthy and to be able to train the whole time. The results in this years IAAF Race Walking Challenge show me that I have done my homework so far. It has been my best Challenge season since the IAAF launched it in 2003! These Challenge races are so important because there you can always compete on a very high international level. Thanks to the IAAF and all local organizers for making this possible!

Tomorrow we will have our National Race Walk Championships on track. This event will take place at the famous "Fana stadion" where the "Søfteland Grand Prix" used to be. On this track have been set numerous national, european, area and world records. The men's race will be 10.000m and we will walk 5.000m.

Next week we will go to St. Moritz and we look forward to that :-)
