At last I had some time to write my race report from my half marathon in Atlantic City. I arrived together with my family to AC Saturday at 5.30pm and was in a bit of a tight spot with regards to picking up my package as the pickup closed at 6pm. So I hurried to the Bally’s casino 5.50 only to find a 300 feet line of people also being close to being a little late for their pickup. However … →
Found this new Danish bike designer. Most of the site is in Danish but you can of course still SEE the bikes And as most things Danish the prices are a bit steep… More bikes from BikersRemix
This Sunday my “2011 season” is over! From Monday and the next couple of months I will move slowly into a more winter oriented training schedule that entails a lot of core work and a lot of swimming with the occasional run/bike ride thrown in, in order to keep me sane. With that in mind I had a look at my training log for the last 10 months. I have kept track of most of my training with my trustworthy … →
Nice video that made me laugh quite a bit. The problem is of course that I would never get to use it since I never will win any bicycle race, unless…perhaps its time to take my 6 year old boy out and do a race with him. “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks from Ninian Doff on Vimeo.
I like to read a lot of magazines on running/cycling/triathlon: Triathlete, Running Times, Paved, Peloton (My favorite right now) to name a few. I am always amazed at the last sections of some of the magazines: The Classifieds/Marketplace. The amount of crap that is advertized in those sections is huge! I looked through the latest edition of Triathlete which seems to be the magazine with the most extensive section. My top three crap things were. Note:I have nothing personal against … →
The worst part of training towards a race isn’t the hard workouts. I actually like the 1000m intervals, the 10k tempo runs and the consistent slow pace of the long runs. I like putting on my running/cycling/swim clothes everyday and go for my training session. Hell – I even like the feeling of my lungs about to pop out of my chest and the blood taste in my mouth after that last sprint around the local 400m track. All those … →
I admit it. I have quite a few running shoes. I current list entails: For long runs: Asics Nimbus and Asics Rush 33 (I actually bought the Rush because the look really cool) For tempo runs: Asics DS-Trainer For racing: Adidas Adizero Feather For trail running: Salomon Speedcross 2 and Adidas Terra something For misc running: Nike Free+ And these is only my running shoes. I have a few (just 5 or 6 or 7 pairs) other sneakers that I … →

Specialized unveiled their new 2012 triathlon specific time trail machine the other day. It is the ugliest bike I have seen for a long time. And the interesting thing is that its design in inherited from one of the most beautiful bikes ever made. The 2010 model of the Shiv. Sure I know that the old one had to live up to certain UCI standards (BTW: the 2010 had to get rid of the nosecone in order to do that) … →
In search for fastness (see blog from the other day) I went out and bought the new Adidas Adizero Feather for use in races. Man, they are light. The come in at 250 grams pr shoe, which is almost 150 grams lighter pr shoe than my regular Asics Nimbus 12. That means that I (theoretically) can take 5-7 seconds off pr mile that I run. That adds up to 1 to 1 1/2 mins off my half marathon time I … →
