First ride on my new Specialized Alias

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

It’s always exciting when a new box signed off Specialized arrives. This time it contained a  Specialized Alias pro – my choice of weapon for the 2014 season. Alias is the womens version of the Venge, an aero road bike that is easy to convert into a neat tri TT bike. It’s meant to be […]

Playitas camp and getting going

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

I’m getting better at winters.  Slowly. It’s still a process. I’ve been updating my wardrobe, getting better equipment and changed my views on how december training is done… The Australian surf and unforgiving sun is now a memory from the past. Instead knee deep snow and chilly winds, riding CX-bikes and getting used to the […]

Preliminary schedule for 2014

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

So the plan for this season has been laid. As always, there might be a few changes here and there. Throughout the years I have learnt that things rarely goes exactly the way they were planned. Sport is all about being flexible and adapting to whatever might be thrown at you. But this is what […]

Mission feet 2014

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

It’s not all fun and cyclecross in Sweden this winter. I have also dug deep in the world of physio therapy and rehabing. Outsourcing the good and the smart people. Making appointments. Following rehab plans and bit by bit adding minutes to my very short and very restricted runs. I want to make this right […]

My cyclecross challenge

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

I have decided to give myself a new challenge this autumn. The National Championships in Cyclecross the 16th of November. I have never done a CX race before. I have only ridden my CX when the roads were to slick or the conditions too severe for a road bike last winter. It’s quite different from […]

Beijing International Triathlon 2013 – the story

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Originally it wasn’t meant to be the last race. Half way through the season I was determined to extend the year and keep racing through october. I was disappointed my plantar issues had prevented me from racing and I wanted to make it up towards the later months of the season. This however – was […]

Win in the Beijing International Triathlon 2013

Friday, September 20th, 2013

It hasn’t been an easy past 5 weeks. My plantar problems escalated into a ruptured tendon. A DNS in Hy-Vee triathlon and an average race in Vegas 70,3 Worlds. So what could possible be sweeter than finishing off the season with a win? In my world, right here right now – not much. I came […]

Las Vegas 70.3 World Champs 2013 – the story

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

It wasn’t the highest moment of my career.  But it was a moment, and a race I walk away from having learnt a lot.  Biggest lesson was probably never to attempt to race a whole season injured. It’s not very productive or good for mental health and sanity. But at least I can walk away […]

Last ours as the current 2013 ITU World Champion

Friday, September 13th, 2013

One year ago I woke up after one of the most agonizing nights of my life.  I came in to Auckland being fit and healthy and probably in the best shape of my life. I woke up in pieces after a night spent throwing up in the bathroom.  Having spent the early hours hitching taxi […]
