Falun 10km Classic World Cup

Today was my first World Cup in 1 year and I have to admit it was a tough re-introduction. This weekend is unsupported and this is never an easy task to deal with. It’s a juggling act of wax tech vs. athlete. For the day before the race, consider carting all the equipment from the truck, […]

South Nordic Shipment!

Don’t you just love it when you get more than you expect? Well picking up a shipment from South Nordic today gave me exactly that! 6kg and just over 1600EUR worth of the best quality casual and sports clothing ever produced! Yeah ‘talk it up’ is what you are probably thinking right about now, but go […]

Intervals and an explosion

Today’s training was a tough interval session in the morning with Japanese Skier and DSA member Akira Lenting. Unfortunately it has been ridiculously warm again for the past 2 days here in Falun and the once perfect race trails are beginning to suffer. Race organisers are doing everything to preserve the courses and this means […]

Interval Training with DSA

Today was a tough interval session on the World Cup race loop with Dala Sports Academy. These sessions are always painful and this one was no different! Heart rates were surprisingly low, but the power and speed was right up there so I’m hoping that’s a good sign! The layout: 5mins at threshold, 2 X 30,30’s (30 seconds […]

Enchiladas

Mexican Cuisine has always been a bit of a favourite of mine, however when traveling, it is often hard to find! Here is Enchiladas cooked my way – just slightly different to what you may have previously experienced, but I’m going to be arrogant here and claim that it’s an absolute winner! Despite what you […]

Back to Training and a New Sponsor!!

So after a wet weekend in Estonia, it was quite nice to get back to Falun where it snowed quite a lot overnight! The session this morning was an easy going L1 Skate with a few shorter speeds. Not the fastest of snow (fresh wet snow never is) but quite an enjoyable none-the-less! This afternoon, […]

13th in Estonian National 15km Classic

Yesterday was one tough day! The course was certainly a double pole course, however it’s amazing the difference in attitudes between Swedes and Estonians! The TD (Technical Delegate) came up to us before the start as we were powdering up our skate skis and said it would be impossible to Double Pole and certainly be slower. He […]

Otepää

If you read my latest life blog, you will understand why today I was feeling a little on the tired. After a long travel I tested skis and was Stoked to discover that the new transparent base skis are amazing in this rain effected snow! This fills a huge gap that was in my fleet […]
