Feels like vacation!

Ever since I checked out from work on Friday I have had a vacation feeling. No real plans for two day except Midnattsloppet and a big fat sun shining in my face. Yesterday I trained yoga for 90 minutes, hanged out at the waters listening to pod casts and did nothing. Today I started the day with a walk around Kungsholmen after way too little sleep last night, during the walk I got the brilliant idea to bake cinnamon buns so I did that. Then I was hanging out in Vadaparken the whole afternoon and Stefan Löfven had his summer speech there. It was as cleaver as he is so the say. Now I have just ended this weekend with a class of Bodypump. It was quite boring and I had not that much inspo for lifting weights but at least I feel stronger. Thank you Stockholm for creating such a summer weekend that it felt like pure vacation at home!

Midnattsloppet á la 2015

Last evening was my third time running Midnattsloppet in Stockholm. All around Söder felt like a huge running party and I love the atmosphere in this race. It is not a PB run due to the huge crowds, the route with X number of turns but it is one of my favorite races. Somehow although I was just going to run for fun I was a bit nervous about it when I biked over to the S-island. This year I had a quite good startgroup, 2b and although it was supposed to be 45-49 mintutes runners there I understood quite fast that a lot of people had overrated their capacity. I was counting on 48-49 minutes but all the way around the course I was passing other runners. I had a great feeling in my legs the whole way and I was not really tired when I crossed the finishline after 10 energy filled kilometers. The last two kilometers I had terrible cramps in tummy so I could not finish the way I liked to do. From this run I take with me the five star experience, the great feeling in my legs and that I finished at an acceptable time. So many people out cheering, lots of bands playing and music all around. I just love this commercial fun run races like this one. Mission completed and if possible I will get back next year!

Running and rose

  
Yesterday was one of the best kind of summer Friday’s. I kicked off with an 8K run in Hagaparken before work, had a good day at the office including Friday Fika, biked home and picked up my Midnattsloppet race gear before finishing drinking rose and chilling at Hornsberg with a dear friend talking about all and everything. A freaking fab Friday I would say. The sun is shining so let’s the remaining part of the weekend follow the same pattern!

Bbbbreakfast

I have not felt for eaten in the past months and for me it is normal when it is summer. Also my favorite meal breakfast becomes boring to eat so therefore I decided that this week I was going to shoot blog friendly pictures of my brekkies to have a mission with it. It didn’t increase my appetite or inspired me to spend more than minimal time in the kitchen but I have at least varied myself a bit. Here comes a lineup of items that I have begun my days with the last week:

  
Yoghurt, serve yourself fruits, strawberries and coffee.

  
Home baked bread and Tropicana juice.

  
Oatmeal with home picked blueberries and cinnamon.

My mission until next week is to create three different brekkies. Anyone who is in to the challenge?

Combat combo

First combat and then a big fat bomb into Brunnsviken. Sounds fab right? I guarantee it was! Once again I am a combat addict. Can’t help it. It is just so much fun that after every class I book a new one. It is good training aswell so I guess I could have had worse addictions like smoking weed.

Run & yoga

Is what I call one of the training super combos. Before work I took off for a 9K run in Hagaparken. It was a beutiful morning and my legs where light weight. One kilometer as warmup in 5:30 pace then smash. The remaining 8000 meters in 5 pace. That has never happened before as far as I can remember. My morning runs are usually a part of my wake up so I am half asleep. A fab start of a fab average Tuesday I would say.

  
And after my officeday was over I headed for a yoga session. Not the most advanced stuff but I badly needed some stretching so fair enough. Now shower time and then back to number three off the Monday to Friday 7-17 in the office and some sports and socialization on top of that life. Comfy but less exciting life I would call it. Anyone else who has fallen into the same pattern?

Bucket list thing

Yesterday I was doing something I have not done for ages, watched live soccer. AIK played against my favorite Stockholm team Djurgården at Friends arena so I just had to do the bucket list thing and watch a derby. Almost 40 000 spectators and it was lots of fun and I definitely have to be a more frequent spectator for live sports events. Before I watched games quite regularly but nowadays. Almost never. Except that Djurgården lost. Soccer is best watched IRL.
