En Route to Vasaloppet, day 191-214


Ok, it has been a while… I have been busy at work after returning from sick leave. So skipping fast forward to the positive side of things I acquired a GPS training watch, the M430 no less, from the Danish company Polar. This is looking like being the best investment I have ever done apart […]

En Route to Vasaloppet day 176-183


Buehh, got an injury to my right shoulder probably at the lower end of m. teres minor or m. teres major or both. I think it started when I was doing Kongevejsløbet which would explain why I felt so out of power towards the end. A sneaking injury that didn’t really come to play until […]

After the sharp run in Sweden I took a three day break to celebrate my birthday and to get some mushroom, and berry picking done before we went home. Now we have been back for 5 days and it has been five days of hardship but also with positive feedback. My weight is still going […]

En Route to Vasaloppet, day 135-139


It has been heavy raining here in Halland in the past 5 days. That did not deter me from going out. Add a little grease to the outside of the wheels of the RollerSafe and they can practically go amphibious. Well needed as it felt more like running through a shallow lake at times with […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 124-126


Day 124 was set out to train on a more flat and easy route. I did 17.5 km at the fastest pace yet for the long distance courses I have been doing lately at average speed of 14.54 km/h. Smooth. Yesterday (day 125) we were going to visit my parents and the plan was to […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 123


What a perfect day to roller ski. Sunny, 22° celcius and absolutely no wind. When I got home from meeting my friend Johanna and her little sweet 6 months old baby Malcolm I went to swap the sunglasses I bought yesterday since they had some microscratches in the glass. No problem at Rulleskisport. They just […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 122


I went to my local equipment pusher at Rulleskisport today to get some new classic boots and sunglasses. I rolled there on the RollerSafe and after I went out for a 10 km run. Nice and easy 15 km today. I got boots and glasses at a nice rebate. Nice to have a good local […]

Been doing a couple of nice RollerSafe runs of 18-20 km. I feel more fit and ready to take on the first big challenge: Kongevejsløbet September 10, 2017! This is a seeding roller skiing competition for Vasaloppet 2018 as well as counting as the long distance DM (Danish championships for long distance roller skiing). 45.2 km […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 114


Today was a good day for training. Even though I had been working and came home quite late I felt in good spirit and shape. I decided to go for the longer distance route of 18 km and give it a shot at breaking 14 km/h an average for this distance. I got good feedback […]

Since I got home from Transylvania I have been changing my training to double length and more up and down kind of terrain, like going 18 km instead of 9 and going up longer climbs, not as challenging as Transylvania though but still some shorter 5-6% climbs and a longer 3% climb of 2-3 km. […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 81-82


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 […]

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 […]

En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 72


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 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 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 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 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 […]

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 […]

Doven-Robert


Det har flydt over med fordømmelser af Doven-Robert og hans forhold til arbejde. Men ingen har tilsyneladende gidet gøre sig selv og samfundet den tjeneste at tjekke op på Roberts baggrund. Jeg kan huske Robert og hans nihilistiske parti fra en blog på et kendt TV-medie, hvor han gjorde meget ud af at profilere sig […]

Aktivitetsvidenskab – nogle etiske aspekter på aktivitet

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…

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 […]

Landmænd, østarbejdere og udnyttelse.


Når Anders Fogh (V) har læst denne artikel, vil jeg meget gerne høre et bud på, hvorfor ukontrolleret liberalistisk markedsøkonomi er at foretrække frem for den skandinaviske blandingsøkonomi. Danske Landmænd og landbrugsskoler bruger unge udlændinge som billig arbejdskraft i stalden – altimens landsbrugsskolerne modtager millioner af skattekroner i betaling for at have østeuropæere på skolebænken, […]

Sådan behandles udenlandske arbejdere i Danmark…


Historien starter i Rumænien 2004, hvor 2 venner er blevet enige om at søge job i Danmark. De får via den enes kæreste kontakt til en landmand i Danmark, som har kontakt til et dansk vikarbureau, som kan skaffe dem papirer til udlændingeservice så de kan få arbejds- og opholdstilladelse.. Så langt så godt. Men […]

Hjerneforskning….


I videnskabens verden arbejder man konstant med dogmatiske antagelser, som man så søger, at – enten tilbagevise – eller bevise. Disse dogmer skaber fordomme ude blandt almindelige mennesker og kan således være yderst skadelige. Eksemplificeret ved eksempelvis måden handicappede og udviklingshæmmede blev behandlet på i 30’ernes Tyskland. En fordom, som man tit støder på ude […]

Depression kan spores på syv minutter….


“Næsten halvdelen af alle langtidssygemeldte lider af en psykisk sygdom; men mange af dem aner det ikke.” Overlæge i psykiatri ph.d. Hans Jørgen Søgaard, som arbejder med diagnostik og behandling af psykiske sygdomme i Herning/Region Midt, har udviklet et spørgeskema, som kan hjælpe sagsbehandlerne rundt i landets kommuner til på få minutter at screene langtidssygemeldte […]
