Over the Christmas period I had a surprisingly good block of training. Finally things seemed to be going my way and in the end I had almost 20 days of uninterrupted training. I completed almost all of my sessions exactly as I’d planned and started to feel better and better. I ended the holiday period […]
Anyone who keeps up to date with cross country skiing results may have noticed that I’ve not exaclty done much racing at the start of this season. I raced at Beitostølen at the Norwegian season opener races, but the day after I came down with a cold. A reoccurring theme for me this autumn and […]
We finished off the altitude camp in Tignes a few weeks ago. Afterward I spent about a week training in Lillehammer before heading on a Team Telemark camp at Gautefall. The last few weeks have been busy. Training has been going well and hopefully I’m starting to get somewhere near the sort of shape I […]
The last few weeks have been full on with training, competing and more training. In the middle of August I raced at Toppidrettsveka, a 3 day, 4 races rollerski competition in Aure and Trondheim. After that I had a week of Lillehammer training before heading to Tignes for the first altitude camp of the year […]
You probably can’t win a ski race in the summer, but you can definitely loose one. It’s no secret that us cross country skiers use the summer off season to lay the foundations for the winter. And, after my slow start to the off season, I’ve set about doing just that. The last few weeks […]
It’s been a while since my last blog post. The start of the training year has been pretty difficult for me. During May and June my training was constantly put on hold due to illness. After 17 days of illness in 2 months I finally started training properly just before the start of July.
It’s been a while since my last race of the season. I’ve had lots of time to do other things and plan for the coming season. I’m now getting to the stage where I’m getting bored of the off season and I’m ready to get back into training. I thought it would be good to […]
I apologise for not updating this blog sooner. I’ve unfortunately had a catastrophic computer failure resulting in my computer being nothing more and a glorified coaster that can occasionally make a few noises. I’ve managed to get my hands on a computer and thought I’d take this opportunity to update you all on what has […]
It’s been a while since my last update. There’s been a lot happening but I’ve never got round to writing about it until now. January has been an irritating month for me. Things haven’t quite gone as easily as they should have and its been more of series things nearly coming together. My results sheet […]
I’m not really sure where to begin. The past 10 days have been quite an adventure. Lots of blog worthy stuff has been happening, far too much to write about it all, but I’ll do my best to try and get you up to speed.
Every year I look forward to coming back to Davos. The skiing here is fantastic. I get excited about racing here like a little kid gets excited for Christmas. To put it simply, Davos is quite possibly my favourite place to ski in the world.
«Why aren’t you in Kuusamo?» If I had 1 kroner for every time I was asked that last weekend then I’d be rich.
Every year the race season kicks off in Beitostølen. This year it almost didn’t. But thanks to snow saved from last year and snow bought from another ski resort the races went ahead. For me the weekend would hold a few surprises, the first of which was when I woke up on Thursday morning.
I once told my landlord that I was heading to Val Senales for a few weeks and that I wouldn’t be at home. He replied with «Val Senales? Oi, oi, oi».
I thought for my first blog I could introduce my self and let you know just how on Earth a British guy has ended up writing a blog on a Norwegian website… about skiing!
