WOC 2017 in Estonia

World Championships is over, and for me it was really short and intense. Being selected only for middle and relay meant that I was preparing for two races in two days in the very end of the championship, and a long wait to get started. I felt prepared both physically and technically, so I was [...]

Taking the next step 2017?

After last year I made some minor changes to my training, to make sure that I will continue to develop. Nothing big, but probably enough for me to get out of my training comfort zone. A little more focus on the hard sessions, a little more strict with the easier ones. And it has been [...]

Closing down 2016

There was not much time to recharge after WOC in Strömstad, and I came in to the autumn season with a bad shape (but luckily not as bad as during WOC). Swedish Long Champs in September was a disaster, and I didn’t have neither the phyical shape nor the spirit to get a good result [...]

Mixed feelings after the World Championships

A World Championships on home ground really is something special. We have prepared for WOC 2016 for many years, and I have spent countless hours in relevant terrain, just to be able to have a peak performance in the summer of 2016. So much planning and preperations. Now, two weeks later, I can definitly say [...]

A hectic spring season: 33 competitions in 13 weeks

After a good training winter it is always great fun to run a few competitions during the spring, but this year it feels like it has been a little bit much. It started with Måsenstafetten the 20th March, and since then until Jukola (June 19th) I have competed every weekend, and most competitions have been [...]

Back on track: A winter without major setbacks

After a summer with a lot of problems, it feels great to be able to say that I am back on track. With a little distance to last year, I can say that my physical problems most definitely was caused by over training (or rather, under-rest). From the beginning of June to the end of [...]

Struggling with my shape: WOC & Swedish Champs

The last 2 months has been really tough for me. Not much training, a lot of time at home, trying to rest a lot, but still struggling with a body that is not cooperating. There has been som days when my body has felt less bad (WOC relay, SM middle), and some when it has [...]

Swedish Spring Season and World Cup Round 2

More than 5 months since the last update, and a lot has happened. I have run a lot of competitions, but continued with my tough training focused towards World Championships in August. My shape has been up and down, and so has my back-problems. You are not going to get the full story in this [...]

World Cup round 1 in Tasmania

The World Cup year 2015 started already the 2nd of January, with sprint qualifications in Cataract Gorge just outside Launceston. The area was really amazing from a touristic point of view, but maybe not from a sprint orienteering perspective. Anyhow, I enjoyed it, and could cruise around the course quite comfortably to a 2nd place [...]

Two Bronze Medals // Två bronsmedaljer

This text was published in the Swedish O-magazine Skogssport nr 9 on the 10th of November 2014. The original Swedish version can be read below. Orienteering wise, this year has easily been my best so far, with several victories and goldmedals to bring home during the season. I have won the Swedish Silva League, I [...]
