I have many favorites, but the best must be 2-3 hour runs in the mountains where you go up and down more than 1000 meters in altitude, preferably 100% on dry trails.
Nature without a doubt. Definitely on the mountains above the tree line, where you can see the fjords and mountains. It’s hard to beat the Sunnmøre Alps on a summer day.
- When it’s cold outside: Light, warm and breathable equipment that can handle being wet and hold in heat. On the outside, you should wear a light, functional jacket that withstands the rain and wind and insulate from the cold for a longer time. On the bottom, good running shorts generally suffice, but on very cold days I can also opt for tights.
- When it’s warm outside: Light, light, light. I like as little clothes as possible. A running t-shirt or singlet combined with short running shorts are a perfect combination for warm days. Dæhlie’s collection is also so light that carrying an extra T-shirt or singlet to change into after a workout is absolutely no problem.
It has to be the RAW Athlete jacket. That jacket with the Endorphin shorts and the Airnet Wool shirt are my favorite running outfit. I use these clothes both on warm and cold days.
I go on a 7km run at a light pace every day from Monday-Friday before work. I run intervals 3 days a week, which range from 12x400m to 8x1000m. On Saturdays and Sundays I tend to go on long runs. I go on one run in the city which is about 25-30km in length, and one run on the mountain with about 1000meters of altitude. I run about 65-100km per week. This amounts to 6-8 runs and 1-2 strength workouts.
This year’s goals are the Xreid Voss-Bergen Ultra-terrain run, the Oslo Marathon and Ålesund’s New Years Marathon
