2017...

...and another 365 days to take care of!
Not much of winter here as it use to be...
Well, but this day was nice though! :-)
Ok, what do I mean by that "take care of" in the beginning of this text? Just what I´m writing I´ll say!
The time is running and will never come back to us so try to take care of it in the very best way friends! Things go so fast from the top to the bottom, which seems so negative.
Well, I can say it goes quite fast from the bottom to the top too so just go out there and try your best to do all that great stuff you´ve got inside yourself.

Let the dreams come true!

The road in my Paradise!
One of many roads where I come from
Ok, I have been a little injured for a couple of weeks. Not bad but a little muscle-strain in my left calf. Rest and some Aloe Vera and it´s almost ok now.

While not able to run I do a lot of other things instead. Strength for example. I do push-ups, sit-ups, back and calf-exercises (push-ups in stairs on toe).
I also have been able to use my x-trainer without any problem. So, yes I have been sweating alright!

The x-trainer is perhaps my "best friend" now and the pilates-ball is number two I think. Great tools when doing strength.

Pilates ball is a great tool to use when doing strength-exercise!
I have a big goal 2017 and that is a +100 mile run to my cottage up in the mountains of Härjedalen. 2016-01-01 I had to go to the emergency room at Östersund Hospital due to kidney stone attack. Almost a year ago now.
So from an almost negative level, I've been fighting me back to the races again. I still am not back to 100 % again but on my way though.

To make that +100 mile race I have som smaller goals by the way.
  • In April 2017 I will try a 6h-race
  • June 3 I will run my 11th marathon in Stockholm
  • Probably help the team of refugees in the St.Olavs-race (relay)
  • "cruise controller" in a half-marathon. (2 hours I think)
  • The +100 mile to the mountains
The little church up in the mountains where the goal for my +100-mile project are located.
Normally I do not go out with my project before I do them, but now I have made an exception to show that it is possible to come back from zero.. I will give you the route later summer 2017.

Remember that almost nothing is impossible! It´s just about some other roads to get there :-)

It is a way of life!"
As usual keep smiling, dare to say Hello! to strangers and look around the corners!

Always run Easy, Light and Smooth!
