The alternative month

It has been five and a half weeks since last time I ran, and there is still another two and a half weeks before I'll be back in my runners. For the last weeks I've been gaining weight (+ 2.5 kg) and doing a lot of alternative activities. As always I don't waste any time on being bored.

After four hours of searching the afterski was finally located.

First of all I'm back skiing, and darn that is great fun. At the moment I wish we would have another five-six months of snow ahead of us. In two weeks I've had seven days in the slope, and I've got some ideas for next season already.

Haukelifjell ftw! Days like these will stay with me for a long time...

Below is another telemark clip. This time from Haukelifjell skiresort. A "slightly" chaotic and shaky movie, but you might get the idea. I love the feeling of freedom skiing gives me. No powder, but I really do enjoy on-piste skiing as well.

But I've done some next to skiing as well. All in all it has been an active February, with some activities every day but one. No idea what I was doing on the 5th of February (see image underneath) in stead of exercising, no good.

My favourite activity has been treadmill walking. I've normally walked on 15-20% incline and 6.5 km/h for 6.5 km. A great session that I've done 14 times. My second most performed activity was indoor cycling, which I've done 9 times. Then I've done indoor rowing 5 times, telemark skiing 5 times, cross country skiing 4 times, and elliptical, aqua jog and "fat boy running" each once.

February, the alternative month.

The most boring activity was the elliptical machine (I hated this). The most efficient was fat boy running (extremely hard). The most comfortable, but still quite boring, has been cycling. The session I liked the most has been treadmill walking, as it was easy to do but at a same time felt reasonable exhausting.

Next to these session I've also had 21 strength sessions where I've built my enormous muscles even bigger. Superman, go home!

Around Easter I will once more start running. Having gained weight (muscles only, but of course) and not been running for that long, I have no hopes of setting new PBs during the spring. However, I'm very optimistic and hoping for one or two season's best.


  1. Jøsses, visste ikke at det gikk an å trene så bra uten løping. Godt jobba! PBene kommer.

    1. Takk for det, Siri. Ikke noe problem å unngå sofaen til tross for at man ikke kan løpe, nei. Først SBer, så kanskje PBer også...

  2. Møllespasering som morsomste aktivitet? Da er man litt sjuk i hodet, spør du meg... :-D
    Men det ser jo definitivt ut som om du får tiden til å gå, og snart er det påske.

    1. Haha. Ja, mulig jeg syk i hodet. Men når jeg skrev dette så glemte jeg langrenn og telemark. Telemarkkjøring ser jeg imidlertid ikke på som trening. Det er for moro ((; Og langrenn er litt mer tiltak for meg, men det er absolutt en KNALLBRA form for alternativ trening. "Noe" deiligere å være ute i frisk luft enn inne på en mølle.
