Even a mountaineerier need vacation:-) This time I Went to Rhodos for a swimming and sun vacation.
I met Papastamatis a guy that got a outdoor store with a real good philosophy. He was working actively to get people into the adventure and hiking area. Visit his store while your in Rhodes:-).
I nice outdoor store in Rhodes.
When it comes to training, my planning is to train as much different type of training as possible. This for avoid injuries and don’t get bored. This period the trail running will be in focus.
In Jamtland the Vålådalen area.
This time I went to Vålådalen area. Run from Vallbo to the mountain cabin Anaris. One of the smallest cabin in the Sweden mountains. With lots of trails it is easy to choose different ways. This time I choose the trail trough the Ice valley (Is-Dalen) a fantastic trail. I was warned before for the high levels of water in the creeks, but with high speed and long jumps it worked out fine:-). It was still lot of snow in the mountains. the colour of the blue sky, the white snow and the green-brown mountains was amazing.
The use of La Sportiva Buschido was a terrific choice. Perfect stability and a grip I never had before. This together with the perfect fit makes the experience 100% of satisfaction.
When it comes to Anaris Cabin, normally you will be there by your self. this related to that fact that it is quite unavailable. But this time it was fully booked. Ten persons, and a perfect weather. 9 of them was trail runner. so it has become a real concept in the Swedish mountains…

About being a alpinist and values…
It is very important to clarify what are the most important, and what you value most in your life. What you stand for and what is the most ultimately motivates you most. If you don’t have this cleared out, you will never feel your decision will be the right. Take your time and think about your most important values. Use them as a tool when you need to take important decisions in life….
Becoming a good mountaineerer, you need to think trough your values. And when its done, go for it….
At last some motivational video…
See ya soon…
