/ Pernilla in terrible mode
Some colleague of mine has been doing morning runs for a while and I always meet them when I bike to work. I thought that pre work workouts was nothing for me but I was wrong. It is morning magic to run in Hagaparken before work seeing the bright da taking over the dark night. I now have a good routine on how to do it with logistics so I hope to keep up with this tradition.

In January I took part in a very funny running race here in Stockholm when I joined the first edition of Winerrun and now I have the opportunity to make a drawing where one of you can win a startplace to the race in Stockholm the 31st of January 2015. In order to compete you just have to answer one simple question:
Why do you want to participate in Winterrun 2015?
Participate by adding your motivation in the commentfield of this post (or send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Sunday 30 of November. Don’t forget to add your email adress so I can reach the winner.

There are always two choices, do it or don’t. I prefer the do it version. Now when it is cold outside I do not love to run so I prefer combining running with a SATS class meaning that I run to a SATS a bit from my place, takes a class and then run back so tonight I headed to Bottne’s SATS Stadshagen to join the magic Shape class (I thought). But I was waitlisted and did not got a spot. I could have walked home but I did not. I ran there with a plan B if I did not got into the class and that was to take a run. So I had to put plan B into action and believe it or not, I had an enjoyable time outside running a 15K run alongside the waters of Stockholm in my comfy Adidas Boston Boost shoes. I could imagine in my wildes fantasy that I, Pernilla Bredolt, the constant freezing P would randomly run a 15K run tonight but I seriously had a blast! Try it! And most important when going out running in the dark, just do it as Linn say. Just do it, not thinking, just damn do it.
Or sign up to a fun race like Winterrun and you are more and promiss me to not park your runningshoes just because it is winter, dark and cold!

The mask from yesterday’s winter masquerade is off and here I am sitting summarizing what I have done when it comes to training since getting home from my vacation last Sunday.
Tuesday: Spinningpulse at SATS Hötorget
Wednesday: 9K run around Kungsholmen
Thursday: Bodypump at SATS Odenplan
Friday: Morning run (!!!) at Hagaparken
Sunday: SATS power step and Bodybalance at SATS Stureplan
Before I made my summary it felt like I had not been training at all this week but obviously I have. It turned out to be a quite nice training mix I have to say. Not so much running but next week I plan to get back to my standard of 40-50K a week after some post marathon resting. And the morning run concept was great so I hope to have time for one next week also, maybe on Thursday. On Saturday I have Tunnelloppet at my agenda as well but that is just a fun thing. How was your week in the training shoes?

This weekend passed by like a F1 competition. I have had some friends that I lived with in Singapore over and we have just socialized the whole weekend. It really lighted up the gray November days. We started with Friday night sushi at a really nice place called Roppongi at Kungsholmen and then wewent to the usual bars at the same island. On Saturday we had a late much with some more friends from SMU before we went to another friend at Kungsholmen for a super fun masquerade party. Today we slept until noon and then we closed the get together weekend with brunch at Levinskys. Isn’t it really cool that a lot of people that I went to Singapore with seven years ago still hang out and every time we meet up at any place in the world it feels like yesterday.
