Session 29 : 15 x 200m : Saturday 23rd of June
Mr Eiksund organised a session with the ever fastest woman on the 800m in Norway, Ingvill Måkestad Bovim (wikipedia | blog | twitter). Ingvill is travelling to Finland, Helsinki this Wednesday for the 21st European Athletics Championships. Later this summer she set sails for the UK and London for representing the Norwegian colours in the 2012 Olympics on the 1500m event.

15 x 200m was on the program, and the session was supposed to be a light one. However, what is a light session for Ingvill is not a light session for an average runner. Having done St. Hansgaloppen a few hours earlier didn't improve my situation either. I got quite puffed out, and had to kneel during the breaks.

It was a great experience, running with Team Bovim. Following Ingvill in the European Championships and the London Olympics is going to be very exciting. I'll be standing in front of the telly crossing my fingers while cheering.

Good luck!

Keeping up with Ingvill is not easy, despite she having a light session.

Ready, Set ...

Mr Eiksund had done St. Hansgaloppen the night before as well.

Sound and smiling.

The boys can run, but Ingvill runs faster.

My split times, several seconds slower than Ingvill.
