Running again …

after being in London, where i bought a new pair of running shoes (Asics Nimbus 13). I started running again. You can follow my runs on my workout page. I log them via Endomondo on my iPhone, where i also use a Waoo Heart Rate monitor as well.

The funny thing is, prior to using the Heart Rate monitor, it said that i with my current height and weight would burn approximately 550 cal on a 5km run, but after using the Heart Rate belt it has dropped to ~430 cal. I’m assuming its because I’m apparently more fit than the average guy with my weight and height, otherwise Endomondos calculations are just way off.

Still gaming

its been quite a while since my last post. Mostly because i have been too occupied by other things.

I am still gaming, and participating in lots of betas and alphas.

Months ago, shortly after Close Quarters, i more or less stopped playing Battlefield 3. I simply just had enough i think. A friend convinced me to give Word Of Tanks a try, haven’t played it since beta. The game play it self is more or less the same, but i enjoy it for now.

I have also been participating in Hawken alpha and MechWarrior Online Closed beta.

For now I am sticking with World Of Tanks. And then i started running again =)

The active father

so, its certainly been a while since i last updated my blog. So a short summary of what happened meanwhile comes here:

I stayed with my “program” and still do fitness twice a week that means i go to the gym do 30-40 minutes cardio, and then moving around some iron for another 45 minutes or so. It aint much, and I’m certainly not going to be an Arnold doing this, but it keeps me in shape. The ultimate goal is still to get completely rid of the blubber around my belly.

For a while i added running to the equation, and so i power walked to the gym and ran a detour home from the gym. This was done in a pair of running shoes from nike that I was given by my wife as a Christmas present. A few weeks ago i decided to stop running since i got a inflammatory pain behind my tibia bone, and i have diagnosed my selv with tibial stress syndrome, some call it Shin splints. I went and had a runners test done, which I should have done to begin with, and was told the shoes i had was a neutral running shoe, as it was suppose to be. Only it was made for runners in the 65-75 kilo class, and since im a solid 96 kilos, the absorption in the shoe was too poor resulting in my Shin Splints.

So now i need a new pair of runner shoes. i think im going for the Asics Nimbus.

That aside, i have put a lot of hours into Battlefield 3 in my spare time, but since the end of January i haven’t touched it. Do not know why, i think i just had enough for now.

Upcoming projects at home is real father stuff! I need to add a gate and replace a gate before the summer comes, since my boy Christian turns out to be the opposite of hes sister, whos a polite young girl that always does what shes told and never tries to run away…

Also, going to add a Jungle Gym to our garden. I cant wait to put it up, not to mention seeing the looks on the kids faces when they see it :) Especially since the look I saw on my daughters face when i setup her trampoline with safety nets yesterday as its just about springtime here.

I now have a son, and then some =)

phew, its been a while since my last update, but so many things have been going on, that i somehow neglected my own blog/webpage.

However, lots of things have happened. First and foremost, on 24th september we were given a son, we are going to name him Christian. He was 51 centimeters “long” and weighed 3680 grams at birth. My daughter Julie is very proud of him, and after she got over the first bit of jealousy, shes quite happy about him.

Our house, bought febuary 2009, is a story in it self, and i will post a very long and detailed explanation about the whole issue once were settled back home. A short summary though, there was a small dent in the living room floor, that we contacted the insurance company about, and now we live temporarily in an apartment while the whole house gets cleaned from a sever mold infection =/ The cool thing is, we will get an improved house to move back into in a good week from now. Below you will find a few selected pictures from the process of rebuilding the house. I will make another post with pictures and video from the whole process once were moved back home.

On the personal side, i have picked up running. I decide one night to do SOMEthing, so i just did it! I found an app called Nike + GPS on the Appstore and downloaded it to my iPhone4, and then i took off running. 2,36 painfull kilometers later i had my first run for years behind me.
Since then i picked up the pace, and just today i did a 5 kilometer run with a average speed of 4 minutes 59 seconds pr. kilometer which was one of my goals. The reason i started running was because i did not exercise enough, and so i decided to set myself some goals, some with a time limit and some without. So, here for all to view are a list of goal ( will add them to a side bar shortly after this post ) that i have set for my self.

  • Run 5K on a regular basis
  • Run 10K faster than 60 minutes
  • Run a half marathon
  • Do a 5 minutes static breath hold
  • Run a marathon!

Feel free to follow my running over on my nikeplus.com profile.

Well, it started out pretty standard with me wanting to loose weight, which is the main reason along with me getting fit enough to do long breathholds, which again leads to me doing more freediving. I want to get some depth on my freediving as well, but first of all, theres hardly any places near me where there is sufficent depth to call it deep. So thats on hold for the time beeing.
