Skjennungstua Opp is one of the best races on my calendar. A brilliant event, that everyone that are able to, should try at least once. Loads of prizes, wonderful food, very social, and a nice track. Specially running down from Skjennungstua after the event can be magical, even in rain. A huge thanks to "Team SRM" for making this possible.
I ran more than a minute slower this year than last. Not sure why, I ran as fast as I could. I always do. I have tried thinking of reasons why. There might be many, like being in worse shape (maybe doing about 30 km a week has started paying off), starting too slow, becoming too passive, not being in the pain-is-fun-mode, being in out-of-competition-mode, being in winter-hibernation-mode. Only speculations. One thing is for sure thought, if I want to run faster the best thing I can do is to run more. Too bad I am lazy, and that the winter season is coming up. Time for even less runs, gaining weight (and hopefully strength as well), and loads of telemark skiing.
I have signed up for Hytteplanmila, as my last race of the season, except for SRM that is. Right now I don't even know if I can be bothered to participate. Having said that, that as well is a very social event. And the wheat rolls are always tempting, at least if you have not ran "too" fast, which seems not likely becoming an issue for me.
