After work today I took the train to my hometown for an early Mother’s Day surprise. I think it worked pretty good since my mum got really excited when I ran to the terrace and said hi! Luckily enough my parents had BBQ in the garden tonight so I got some nice salad, meat and tzatsiki. So now I am spending this weekend in real Västerås style with forest running, training, garden chill-out and so on.

I can’t say that I like Loka’s old school drinks, but this retro painted Thai aircraft that I spotted at Arlanda is a favorite of mine. Isn’t it cool? I hope more airlines will paint their planes in old school style.

It is Friday and the outside seems to be lovely today. I really felt for pushing the snooze button this morning but I have never done and will never do, because if you snooze you lose. So at 05:50 am I crawled out of my bed, got dressed, walked with my muscle aching legs to the A.Express and had a yoghurt on the go. Before seven I arrived at the office so now I can go home and enjoy the outside really early today just because I did not pressed the snooze button.

Like so many other evenings I boosted up this evening as well with some running. 12 kilometers was my plan and 12 km’s was what I completed. The muscle pain from yesterday is all over my legs an back so there was no comfortable kilometers today, but I do not mind. Next weekend it is marathon time and I know from experience that every meter after the 30 km mark without pain is a victory so it is great excersice to practice with some pain and since pain is just weakness leaving the body it is fine!

For some hours this afternoon I thought about making something real to eat for dinner and got some suggestions at twitter. But during the Arlanda Express trip home I realized that if I am going to bore out in the supermarket and kitchen I won’t be able to go running before midnight and if I choose between training or eating I would in every single case pick training. And that is what I am going to do now when my swiss inspired müsli has been digested.

Today’s I have one of those days. Those days when nothing feels good enough. It started with my what to wear decision. After trying four outfits on when nothing felt or looked wearable I picked a fifth one that also looks like crap but at least is comfortable and bottomed it up with a pair of white Converse shoes. Well, even though no one else than me probably think of my mismatched outfit I have no other choice than walk around with it for the upcoming ten hours. So if you met a street styled clown today – that’s me!

10 kilometers of running and a crosstraining class with an instructor that I have got recommended by friends to visit for a tough workout filled this Wednesday evening of mine. The first seven running kilometers were terrible but the crosstraining was a real rockstar class that I have to come back to. But not next Wednesday because then I will coach #teamUppsala in Vårruset and also figure out if I can beat my personal best at 5K which is a very difficult task.
