Races September 2013

In September I didn't do much, due to the Prism Break Challenge. I was at home at all times, or at work. I did not train at all, never visited anyone and communicated little with friends. Just ask the NSA if you do not believe me. However, if I had done some races I do believe these are the ones I would have done. I also do believe these are the results I would have gotten. Of course, there is no way for me to know this, as it is based on speculations more than facts. For the races I have also constructed some Garmin Connect data entries, using the method described here, based on what I think would have been realistic. Additionally I created some fake heart rate data for some of the races, based on previous recordings.


Ole Einar Bjørndalens terrengløp (OEB terrengløp) 2013
Race #34 2013 - 12.2km - 1:02:18 [debut] - Sunday 1st of September

I do believe this is a proper terrain race. Being at times technical and overall a tough track. I think it is a very nice event that I would recommend people to do.

Atmosphere      : 5/5 (great)
Toilets         : 5/5 (only one, but as there were not many people that was sufficient)
Value for money : 5/5 (100 kr fee, 200 late entry fee)
Organising      : 5/5 (smooth)
Race Timing     : 5/5 (online same evening)
Track           : 5/5 (a very nice track)
OVERALL         : 5 / 5

Gaupekollen opp 2013
Race #35 2013 - 3.2 km - 21:18 [debut] - Tuesday 10th of September

I would have burned myself on nettles, and once more gotten stung by a common wasp, if I had done this race. Despite of this I feel that this would have been my best ever hill race. It would have been a day with a lot of extra energy, where I think I would have ended up with the same time as the guy on 26th here:


One random photo from the race:

SRM #370 (2 rounds)
Race #36 2013 - 6516m - 25:43 - Wednesday 11th of September

If I had done race I think I would have done two rounds in 25:43. The same time as the guy who came fourth on the results list:



Eggekollen opp 2013
Race #37 2013 - 3.5 - 23:02 [debut] - Saturday 14th of September

If I had done this race I reckon I would have ran equally fast as this guy here:

I also do believe I would have loved the event, and given it the following grades:

Atmosphere      : 5/5 (great)
Toilets         : 5/5 (three, for each sex)
Value for money : 5/5 (200 kr, no extra late entry fee)
Organising      : 5/5 (perfect)
Race Timing     : 5/5 (perfect)
Track           : 5/5 (perfect)
OVERALL         : 5 / 5

SRM # 372 (2 rounds)
Race #38 2013 - 6516m - 27:21 - Wednesday 25th of September

Was tired this day, I reckon I would have ran as fast as this guy here:

Oslos Bratteste 2013
Race #39 2013 - 2700m - 20:58.5 [PB] - Saturday 28th of September

This day I felt almost sick. Nerves for a race I never planned to do? I don't know. Anyhow, despite the nerves, the race tummy (needless to go thoroughly into), I reckon I would have done well, and finished at the same time as the guy here:


I do feel, that if I had done the race, I would have helped a cute girl that injured her knee. Helping cute girl with knee problems gains a lot of Karma Points, that is for sure. Specially when they tell you that you get good karma from your actions. I have heard the "Book of Karma Points" is under revision, so that helping girls is becoming a lot more lucrative, Karma Points wise.

I would have had enough Karma Points for both a PB, followed by getting the phone number from the extremely cute girl working at the grocery shop, when I dropped by on my way home. It would have been a very good day.

Just too bad I did no races in September. Another year, maybe...
