En Route to Vasaloppet 2019, day 56-57 and something about how to achieve permanent weight loss


After a days break, fuelled by taking the kids to the park and playing D&D 5th. ed. with good friends afterwards, I took to steal another run on the RollerSafe this morning. A couple of weeks ago I aimed for 16 km/h in average speed and figured once I got there I would be at […]
