En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 89

Still sore throat and feeling the remnants of the cold I have suffered the past ten days now. I felt remarkably well on the RollerSafe today considered the symptoms. I did a couple of high pulse long intervals. One at the length of 2.5 km ranging from 175 to 180 bpm (beats per minute) and […]

Sore throat and feeling sick and a very sore back. Still, I did my training today and did well… Average pulse was 164 but I kept a good tempo 14.5 km/h in average speed without going higher than 177, in max pulse. Looking at the pulse chart I am definitely able to keep a higher […]

Been training 11 of 13 days in June so far. Held a day off yesterday due to a cold that has been hitting me. I am not feeling super but I did go out today for an easy relaxing ride. The past few days I have been doing good runtimes of 14-15 km/h in average […]

Told & Skat & EU-regler

Det her forløb overgår godt nok noget af det mere mærkelige, som jeg har oplevet.   I marts købte jeg et par norske rulleski med trådløse skivebremser fra RollerSafe. Efter et par uger sendte jeg dem retur til reparation under ‘repair & return’. I Norge reparerer de rulleskiene og sender dem retur, men glemmer at […]

Yesterday I took a day off from training due to heavy rain and a sneak up cold starting off. Turned out to be a good idea as I was definitely feeling better today. Instead of training yesterday I went to buy a new pair of training shorts as the old bike shorts I had was […]

I can tell you now that the best cure for hangover is to go RollerSkiing the day after. I did 10 km in the evening after the most infernal rainy day and being capsized by massive hangover after a wedding the night before. Towards the end of the day it cleared up and even though […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 73-75

Another milestone! I checked in at 500 km on my RollerSafe yesterday making this distance in just 82 days whereof 55 were active workout days. That is 9 km pr. workout on average. As for the past couple of days I took a break in the rain Tuesday but went out yesterday and today. The […]

My local motivation pusher at work, commonly adhering to the name Dr. JR., gave me a little pep-talk today on the subject of keeping up the good work. Therefore I went out in the wee evening after getting home from work. Indeed things are moving. Today I did a run with 7 out of 9 […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 71

Well, a new day starts with hangover. For once I succeeded in getting my better half to drive the car home after a family party so for the first time in ages I was drinking something containing alcohol with the catastrophic aftermath today => headache. Of course I was playing with my cousins children and […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 70

Wow, so lovely weather. Hot and nice! It was a bit hard working out though as the air was very dry and it was quite windy. On the other hand I managed again to keep a nice average speed of past 14 km/h even though I felt dizzy towards the 6 km mark. Need to […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 69

Got a good nice breakfast with my girls then went out rolling. The blood sugar was 6.4! Good! In the deer park there were lots of beautiful people out to enjoy the nice warm weather which means I got to make a good commercial for RollerSafe and the blinkies. I went for a slightly longer […]

I was very excited to go to the dietician this tuesday. I even went out for a short roll early in the morning just as I did in Hungary. Here it was a nice morning too but rather cold compared to the climate we just returned home from. First I went to see the doctor […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, Day 59-65

For the past week I have been in Hungary celebrating a wedding in the family. We were staying in Inárcs at the Bagylovár wellness hotel. They have very nice facilities for bathing and wellness. We enjoyed the stay very much. Of course I brought my RollerSafe with me and had a couple of morning rides before […]

En Route to vasaloppet 2018, day 58

Yeah! Definitely moving some heavy intervals now. One intermediate interval at kilometer 3 averaging more than 16 km/h followed by kilometer 8 too, which is a first for this roller skiing track! This is also the 3rd fastest roller ski run I have done ever. I am definitely on the right track recovering from that […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 53-57

Some time ago I wrote something about an experience of mine that high max pulse even for a short while would be very effective at lowering blood sugar levels. In the past few weeks since I was suffering from a severe cold I have been having a sort of stuffiness in my throat with a […]

I took monday off from training to spend some time in the playground with the kids. After taking the kids to daycare and kindergarten in the morning I went for a 9 k RollerSafe run. With one day of spring temperatures Saturday we are now back to cold but sunny weather. All in all not […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 47-50

Day 47 was too busy to get time for rolling. I should have been out rolling friday but I forgot my ski boots when going to visit my parents. Shit happens! Cleaned the car instead. Yesterday I went out for 12 km and today for 10 k in light rain and wet roads. Doing well […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 46

Finally! We get some temperatures over 15 degrees celcius! The sun is shining! Not completely over the cold yet. I did get home in time to go out rolling. Did the usual lap + an extra mini lap and landed just short of 9 km at 13.6 km/h. Now I really need to relax. So a […]

I am going to start this blog with a short venture into the 1st of May articles. In an interview with the Swedish sociologist Roland Paulsen (article in Swedish). He notes that the worktime has not been reduced over the last 40 years in spite of productivity being doubled over the same time period. At the […]

Been off for a while. Last Wednesday I went out for a roll but then I caught up with the flu. Subsequently I have been spending the following days and weekend in bed. Today was actually another day in bed until I couldn’t stand looking out at the sunshine anymore. So I went for a […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 37+38

This is what it is all about: The map reminds me of the ultimate challenge. I am not satisfied with having done it for the first time ever this season. Now I want to seed myself for a better startposition and my target is to finish at about 6 hours. As for training today I […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018,day 35+36

No rolling yesterday as I was babysitting. I got a nice 9 km easy workout in the morning storm winds. Put a smile on my face.

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 33+34

Yesterday was another long day at work and I was too tired to go out when I finally got home. So I spend some quality time with the kids instead. Today I first went with Irís to kindergarten. She was cycling all the way there on her new bike. Super proud little girl when we […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 32

After work I took a ride out in the sunshine. At second best roller skiing average speed of 14.18 km/h I am very satisfied. The interval splits at the midsection were good! On top of yesterdays lengthy ride the body was responding very well to a more fast paced interval training today. Now to combine the […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 30+31

Yesterday was a tug it in and sleep day. The kids were tired too and we were visiting my parents. Besides it was really raining outside and very cold. Much better today. We drove off to Asnæs for the family to pick Allium ursinum for making pesto (yummy) while I prepared for a little longer roller […]

En Route to Vasaloppet, day 28+29

Yesterday it was raining the whole day and I just took it easy inside while visiting our friends in Klejtrup, Jylland. Today it had cleared enough to go out and I found a good round for a workout mostly flat but with a couple of steep climbs. Again the RollerSafe brakes came in good when […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, Day 27

Today is a good day. After breakfast I went out for a run on the RollerSafe. This time faster than even my best overall skate skiing PB. I finished at an average speed of 16 km/h. Great!  Now I am on the ferry to Aarhus and on to Viborg to visit good friends for Easter. […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 25+26

Yesterday was another transition day training wise as I was spending time with good friends in the afternoon and evening after work. Today I went for the usual 8 km workout at the pace of around 13.5 km/h, which seems to be the new standard for me these days. I am so really happy with […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 23+24

Yesterday I was tired and stayed in. Needed to sleep after a long day at work. Since my wrists have been aching a bit over the past couple of weeks, and I only got the new suspended poles Saturday, I took a pair of old wrist guards from rollerskating and removed the metalbits. I tied […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 22

Doing better with the knee today. I was out for an easy run again on the RollerSafe. This time I wanted to test some pretty scary descents in the forest area up north of here. The brakes worked flawlessly. Much better actually than my courage. I took it sloooowly! The brakes actually allowed for going […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 21

So let’s take a look at that knee. It hurts a bit but it isn’t swollen and it looks quite clean. Yesterday I got a reminder from my cycling days that training for elite sports can be detrimental to your health if you are sloppy with safety. Luckily I got out of this one in […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, Day 20

Today I planned to go from Rungsted to home about 15 km but plans can quickly get disrupted. Thanks to a pair of sheet metal plates lying across the whole bike lane on a descent about 4 km along the route… The RollerSafe brakes saved me from more trouble than I had bargained for though, […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 19

Another PB for classic roller skiing today. This time doing 7.5 km in 32 min. Average speed 14.16 km/h. Looking good. Blood sugar levels after workout was 6.4.

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 18

Quite windy today but nothing to stay home for. So out again and once again confirmation that the brakes are indeed working great! So now I am beginning to feel quite comfortable braking even at speed going downhill. Super! Not the fastest run today but threw in some good double poling intervals. Great feeling!  

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, Day 17

Good News! I am going to be allowed to continue my consultations with the diethist in order to optimize training, eating and continue measuring my gains in the Body Composition Analyzing (BCA) programme. Very good for me since a lot of psychological driving force and desire comes from seeing steady progression, not only in the […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 16

Today I went out on my normal training route. Was really tired after work but worked it out since I couldn’t sleep. Did some double poling intervals at the middle of the course and had a good feeling in legs and arms. When I came to the downhill part the brakes proved to work much […]

Been grey and raining here while I have been waiting for the roller skis to come back from Norway. Finally got the return shipment notice today, so tomorrow they will hopefully be here. Busy day at work though to occupy my mind. Once you are set on something the hardest days are transition days when […]

Another transition day. Waiting for my new RollerSafe to arrive. Been occupying myself with bringing and picking up the kids from daycare. Missing the action!

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 9

New PB for roller skiing. 14.09 km/h for the usual distance. Feeling good! On the other hand I am to send the roller skis back to Norway but the good news is that they will send me a brand new pair due to the half impaired braking ability of the ones I got. Again top […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, Day 8

Today I broke another PR for roller skiing. The ‘usual’ distance of about 8-8.5 km this time going 13.99 km/h an average in classic technique. This is still a short distance rather flat track but considered that I am going slowly downhill and parts of the course is in traffic (crossing roads, etc.) I am […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 7

Been out testing the roller skis today and had a joyful ride. Service did them good in terms of rolling ability but they are a bit hard still on braking from higher speeds going downhill. One of the skis seems harder to manage a none blocking brake maneuver than the other. So right now its […]

Very short status. Got my RollerSafe back today but too late to go out. Looking forward to testing them again tomorrow.

Still down with a cold! But today there are good news from Norway as RollerSafe are sending the rollerskis back with service, 4 new wheels and new brake pads and on top are sending me a jacket for free just as token of them being extremely pleasant folks! Jacket, value 97€ 4 new wheels, value […]

Vasaloppet 2018, day 4

Today I am down with a cold. Good News from Team RollerSafe in Norway though as they received the rollerskis for service. Short message, I know but it is uphill today… Here is some more training options from Brynte and Ramm. We have lots of waterworld facilities in Denmark too. Just think about family dads […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 3

Today is a transition day as my RollerSafe has been shipped to service in Norway. I had a very pleasant customer service experience with these Norwegian guys. I can only recommend them in the strongest positive ways. If you are interested in buying or testing rollerskis but unsure about the braking ability then please do […]

Day two on the way to Vasaloppet 2018.

Been away on rollerskis again and I noticed that if my max pulse during a training session goes up towards 180 and over that then my corresponding blood sugar level goes down to about 5-6.5 which seems to indicate that a high maximum pulse even for a short time frame has a positive effect on […]

DSLR Nikon FX vs. DX Noise

Some common mistake goes in the lines of: FX gathers twice as much light as DX. Noise is exactly a pixel by pixel thing which most people simply can’t fathom. So FX is not gathering more light. It just has a larger imaging sensor which means you do not have to enlarge it as much […]

At ISO 1600 they are more or less the same, although you need to be a bit more careful with sharpening the D800 file as it is more prone to showing luminence noise when sharpening than the D3s due to the smaller pixels. At ISO 12800 out in the wild it is a whole different […]

Fra Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi For alternative betydninger, se Humanisme (flertydig). (Se også artikler, som begynder med Humanisme) Humanisme kan mindst have tre betydninger: En tidlig borgerlig kulturel/filosofisk opfattelse, der sætter mennesket i centrum.

When Baby A was gestating in his mother’s womb, his mom had constant interaction with human beings. When he was born, not only did he bear a striking resemblance to human beings but within a few years he had managed to speak in a manner that closely imitated human language.

Long-Term Follow-Up Studies: An Update on Schizophrenia.

Forord: Jeg har af Brian Koehler fra New York fået lov til at oversætte denne artikel til dansk og bruge den i den generelle debat, da han ligesom jeg mener, at forskningen på dette område er meget vigtig. Det er en artikel, som handler om tværkulturelle langtidsstudier for skizofreni. Brian Koehler skriver desuden, at mange […]

The Ethics of the Machine…

Skolimowski draws our attention to a new phenomenon, developing along with utilitarianism – the ethic of the machine, which is a kind of ethics hardly formulated or even observed. Yet its impact on Western societies has been profound. Since the scientific paradigm was developed in the 17th century, knowledge primarily deals with seeking “the truth”, i.e. the mechanical laws that rule matter. Along with the Western tendency to dominate and exploit nature, according to Skolimowski, intellectual understanding no longer seems to be enough; instead we understand in order to be able to control, and control to be able to manipulate. Here, he argues, the ethics of the machine shows its face – if you believe that the world is a machine, then it is rather natural to try to control and rule it…


You Scored as Cultural CreativeCultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational. Existentialist 69% Cultural Creative 69% Postmodernist 63% Romanticist 56% […]

What is agnosticism…?

I den sidste tid har en stadigt større flok af ateister forsøgt at underminere agnosticisme ved at hævde, at agnosticisme enten er teisme eller ateisme. På wikipedia kan man imidlertid læse flg.: »Agnosticisme står i modsætning til ateisme, idet ateismen klart afviser Guds eksistens« og »tilsvarende må ateisme også adskilles fra agnosticismen, der hævder, at […]

Dawkins set fra en religionskritikers synsvinkel… og hvorfor det ikke holder. vis

Citat fra en religionskritiker: “Jeg betragter ideologien islam som en levende organisme, der muterer og tilpasser sig omgivelserne med det formål at sprede sig til så mange som muligt. Den teori har jeg fra Richard Dawkins bog The Selfish Gene. I bogen gennemgår han genernes funktion for evolutionen. I slutningen af bogen fremfører han en […]

Debatklimaet på nettet.

Det er ikke blot ubehøvlet. Det er røvirriterende, at nogle få skal ødelægge debatklimaet for de mange. Resultatet er jo, at enhver debat med det mindste optræk til D E B A T bliver ødelagt af disse dårers evindelige racistiske og småtbegavede forsøg på at afspore dialogen imellem mennesker, som trods uenighed kunne tænkes at […]


You Scored as Postmodernist. Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe […]

Brian Mikkelsen som justitsminister…

Aaaarrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhh!! Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrhhhhhhhh!!! Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Hvem husker ikke Niels Hausgaards ord om, at regeringen sikrer ham fast arbejde. Det må stå som en ren sandhedsprofeti. Man kan da så håbe på, at det kommer til at gå bedre for kulturmini(host-host)sportsministeriet. Men hvorfor ikke udødeliggøre Brian? Endnu engang må vi ty til Hausgaard: »Jeg(Niels H) synes, at det […]

Husker du Benjamin?

Nu – dræbt af politiet: http://ekstrabladet.dk/112/article1052766.ece I den forbindelse er det uhyggeligt at tænke på, at den brede befolkning bakker op om politivold – eksempelvis i forbindelse med urolighederne på Nørrebro. Og det værste er, at de tre betjente aldrig blev dømt. Det er fuldstændig latterligt i en klokkeklar sag. Efter min mening skulle de […]

Hvornår fik kvinder egentlig stemmeret?

Nu har der længe hersket den fordom, at kvinder bliver nægtet stemmeret i muslimske lande, og at vestlige ‘demokratier’ er meget bedre end andre, fordi det i demokratiske lande er umuligt at nægte kvinder stemmeret. Således udtaler en – dansk – dommer i 1938 det middelalderlige synspunkt, at mændene skal bestemme, og konerne må finde […]

Revolverretorik erstatter egentlig diskussion…

Rigtige definitioner eller tanker om dialektikken i definitioner erstattes ofte af hemmestrikkede definitioner på ord og begreber. Det gør sig ikke blot gældende her, men også på andre medier og diverse blogs rundt omkring. Eksempelvis ser vi det i følgende citat: “… Helligt skrift er ET koncept FØR det er nedbrydelsen i dets sproglige bestanddele […]

Spørgsmål og myter om CEPOS og nogle svar…

En anden blogger skrev i en anden sammenhæng om spåkoner og fremtidsprognoser: “Hvem ved i de 60 år jeg har levet, har jordens undergang været varslet utallige gange. Om det der er sket i løbet af de sidste især 50 år udelukkende er hvor egen skyld, er vel tvivlsomt. Men en god del er det, […]
