Pre-dinosaurian tracks..

The geologist tells us that the tracks come from a pre-dinosaurian, and was discovered by a coincident. The day keep going on a fine trail, and in the noon we are back. A perfect day-tour.

Chamonix area is fantastic. I has it all. You can do so much of different activities. It up to you to choose. In August and beginning of September the weather is quite stable.

The limitation of the area will be your own fantasy of what to do..

The workout goes on as it should. yesterday it was time for the obstacle race: Tough Viking. A 15K race with 24 different obstacles. after one hour and forty four minutes I passed the goal line. Tired but 3rd place of men over 50 year. I think that is ok.

Tough Viking 2017…

The autumn is coming up. every year at this time, I got the feeling that something new is coming up. the expectation is laying there. The first thing that happened was that I become tester for Arrak-outdoor.  A Swedish outdoor company with alignment for outdoor clothing for dog keepers. This will be very interesting.

And what is coming up? I am looking forward for some Via Ferrata and I will test Karpos Mountain pant..

See ya soon

The vacation period here in Sweden, and it is time for the ordinary routines. But this means an opportunity for some changes. First of all don’t let the week just contain the weekends. Then you loose a lot of your life…

Live the whole week, not just Friday-Sunday..

”Is everything well? ” one of the most common question. The thing is that the question will not give you more than an short answer, because of the meaning of the question. Why don’t ask ”how is it?” instead. And you, listen actively. then you will really know how your mat are doing and feel..

And the training; fully focus for the upcoming challenges. A guiding tour and also a obstacle race. With a lot of strength combined with endurance I am on the track.

Cross-fit, combined workout you never get tired of..

With a team-workout on Friday I was satisfied. We reach the target, and we all was totally exhausted afterword’s.

The mountains isn’t got any agenda..

Mont Blanc isn’t got any agenda..

Sometimes people get lost in the mountain environment. The opposite we seldom can read about. The history of all people that had find home again, found the power, the solution of a complex problem or the life they were hunting but never caught? The mountains are still there year after year. The mountains are calling and I must go..
