The perfect Christmas holidays…

…some “thank you’s” (yes, it’s getting a bit kitschy) and the art of enjoying things till the last moment.   Something – in my opinion – I’ve always been good at is to appreciate the small things in life. This Christmas holiday I was very pleased that there were so many small but also big occasions that I could enjoy!  My holiday started at the central station in Gothenburg, waiting for an hour in the cold. The rumours about the delays of Swedish trains doesn’t come from just anywhere (still l have to say that they work hard for customer satisfaction, I got more than ¾ of the originally paid ticket price back because of (only) an hour delay!). I was on my way to Lövstabruk, a small village north of Stockholm to celebrate Christmas with my host family. But why get stressed about something you can’t change? After a long, long run my urge to move was already satisfied and I actually appreciated staying on the platform, listening to music and analysing the trying-not-to-freeze-

Being a visitor at home

Some weeks ago, the pain in my knee was gone and I finally got the chance to take advantage of all the great training possibilities in Gothenburg: Orienteering training, intervals, night corridors, strength and alternative training at fysiken,   long jogs and much more! Finally, I can train as I would like to and with every hard session my motivation gets bigger and bigger for the winter training and the next season. For a weekend filled with looking back on 2018 and planning the new season 2019, I travelled back to Switzerland at the end of last week. After an interruption of a few years in which the planning weekend took place in Ticino, we were back in Magglingen. Unfortunately, the weather was so bad that it wouldn’t have made any difference if we had stayed in a less beautiful place, the only thing we were able to see was fog and clouds.  Still, it was nice to spend some days in Switzerland. Even if it felt like coming home, in those few days I also felt like a tourist

Autumn in Göteborg

As everyone knows, time flies by. It’s already almost a month since I travelled back to Switzerland for the selection races for the World Cup final. A 5000m and a sprint in Lenzburg should decide who is going to run the final round in Prague. With those selection races, I run my last important race in 2018 and with them finish my season – what I didn’t know back then. After many hours in the deep Norwegian terrain, my legs had some trouble to switch to the hard, tartan underground and that could be seen quite well in my time over the 5k. As if this wouldn’t have been enough, I jumped over the second control at the sprint. Luckily, I realised it but with a loss of around one and a half minutes, my chances for a place in the Swiss delegation for the World Cup were gone. Happily, there was a quite good alternative program: The same weekend as the World Cup, 25manna   in Stockholm (the biggest club relay, with 25 people in one team) took place and I would have gotten t
