Top 20 at 10MILA

10Mila is, as always, one of the season highlights, and definitly one of the competitions that I enjoy the most throughout the year. I find it especially inspiring that we have a good young team, with a lot of talent, that really is on it’s way up. Usually I run the last leg, but not […]

Silva League in Skåne

Another weekend with Swedish races done – this time a sprint and a long in Skåne. I didn’t go into these races with an especially good feeling, since I got really tired after last weekend, and didn’t really give myself any time to recover properly, but instead focused on continuing my hard training. Warming up […]

Swedish O-Easter

Just home from EOC, I jumped right into the Swedish O-easter, which always means a lot of competitions. For me, this year it consisted of 2 relays and a Silva League long distance. I really enjoy the smaller Swedish spring relays, but last years snowy conditions meant that all of them (!) were cancelled, so […]

Gold at EOC Relay

After a not at all succesfull middle distance for me, it now feels great to have finished the 2014 European Championships in the very best way possible: With a gold in the relay. Before the start I felt so confident with my capacity, and I was just looking forward to being able to get out […]

EOC Middle – Good speed but disastrous navigation

The middle distance was my big goal this championship, and I was feeling very confident coming into the competition. My running felt good, and I knew that I was able to make the perfect race. Picking up the map in the start, I realised that this was going to be very fast. Of course I […]

EOC Middle Qualification

I did a solid race in the qualifier here in Portugal. I ran comfortably all the way, and despite 2 big time losses (one because I didn’t see the control flag, and one because the control was misplaced – in total  60-80 s lost), I easily qualified for the final. The course was a bit […]

World Cup round 2 in Spain

I was going in to these competitions not feeling very well prepared, due to the strain i got in my right thigh a few weeks ago, but I was still hoping to do some good results. The long distance was really tough, and I was having a hard time getting in to my usual orienteering […]

Ny samarbetspartner: Min Naprapatklinik

Jag har sedan en tid tillbaka ett samarbete med Min Naprapatklinik, en liten naprapatklinik i Sickla. Som elitidrottare är det oundvikligt att få små känningar lite då och då, och när man tränar på den nivån som jag gör, där man hela tiden försöker ligga på gränsen av vad kroppen klarar, är det väldigt viktigt […]

EOC training and EOC selections

The European Championships (EOC) are coming up fast, just a month to go, and last week in Turkey I realised that I haven’t trained at all in relevant terrain. Usually the Swedish national team prepares meticulously for international championships, but this years EOC has been an exception. Our focus is on WOC this summer, and that means […]

On the podium in Turkey

The World Cup of 2014 has started, with races in Turkey this weekend. We flew down to Antalya with the national team this monday,  and I had barely time to repack from OK Ravinen’s camp in Spain before I, once again, found myself at the airport. Anyway, we had some great days of easier training in […]
