Autumn training

Well, I haven’t really talked about it that much, but in the end of the summer I got myself a coach. My coach is actually a friend from the cycling world and a team mate, so it was easy to ask for some advice and guiding. I have a bad habit of making myself training plans I can’t follow and then feel really bad about not following them, so I kind of need someone to look after my training although I don’t have such high hopes of results or competing anymore. But I have dreams to fulfill and the first one to come is Vasaloppet in March.

It’s been easy for me to try to follow a plan which is made for my personal needs and my personal schedule. Some of you might wonder why I crossed the brook for water when I would have had an “almost coach of the year” at home, but I think was the right decision to go look for help a bit futher. The past 2,5 months with coach Pettsson have gone well and I’m happy not having to stress about anything.

Here are a few example weeks of what I have been doing lately.
