Your favorite workout:

My favorite workouts are the long runs where I pack the running backpack, put on a Dæhlie hat and trek in the forest or the mountains. They have become a form of meditation for me, and they allow me to shed all the stress and things to do and just go with the flow for a few hours.

Your favorite training arena:

I like running in nature the best, and mostly run on trails or terrain, so my “favourite arenas” are the forest or the mountain.

How do you dress for your workouts:

- When it’s cold outside: When it’s cold outside I focus on layering up on the strategic points of my body that lose the most heat, like my neck and my head. I don’t like running with thick clothes, regardless of how cold it is. Therefore, winter tights and a base layer with a windbreaker, a buffer, hat and gloves are usually enough for me during winter. I’d rather layer up than wear a think jacket.

- When it’s warm outside: I get extremely warm when I run, so when it’s warm outside the only rule is: as little and as light clothing as possible. A running tank top and short shorts are winners.

Your Favorite Dæhlie outfit:

The RAW Athlete T-Shirt on top with the Oxygen Shorts on the bottom are always safe bets when it’s a bit warm. The Oxygen Shorts especially are my favorites and the best shorts I’ve ever run in, and I’ve tried on a lot.

What does your regular training week look like:

I alternate between weeks where I focus on distance with weeks in which I focus on speed or altitude. The general structure is a hard cardio/weight/combination training in the evening, with a more relaxed, often longer, workout the next morning on an empty stomach. As a rule, I run 5-6 times a week. This amounts to about 70-100km per week, depending on what the focus of the week is.
