Re: BRIC18

Thanks for the write up Max. I followed your race carefully, you had an fantastic finish, I was afraid that the hard start had filled your legs with lactic acid. This year I was very uncertain about my chances to come under 06.40 as I have had some lower back problems and haven't been able to go as ...

Re: BRIC18

The disappointment vanished with the first beer Tako. Hopefully I will be in better shape in Copenhagen next month.

Re: Free Spirits CTC Participation and Leaderboard

I am not to confident that I can hold my position Fred, short sprint tends to end up in lower back injuries. I have to be carefull this month, I do not take any chances and end up with a injury in the final weeks before BRIC.

Re: February ctc - 500m / 2'r / 1250m / 2'r / 500m, rolling starts except #1

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of these ctc's (unlike the stalwart members here who have consistently been putting in superb efforts). I was pleased to be kicked out of a temporary seat last month by Morten and impressed with Erik's significant improvement (in his signature style of repetit...

Re: January ctc - 1000m/250m/1000m/250m/1000m (R:2'/3'/2'/3')

I was quite satisfied with my first attempt this month but I could not resist to another go when I was challenged by Jon. It was a good test before the nationals on Saturday. 01:38.0 03:17.5 1000 33 0 01:38.7 00:46.4 250 35 0 01:32.8 03:17.8 1000 32 0 01:38.9 00:46.5 250 36 0 01:33.0 03:18.1 1000 33...

Re: BRIC 2017

Thanks for the kind words Tako and Paul. I was very surprised when I saw my name on the third place in the display. But I think I played my cards well by not start to fast and save the juice for a good finish.

Re: BRIC 2016

Thanks for the kind words Grobi It has been 5 years since last time I entered this competition, but I decided with the opportunity to combine racing with a pre Christmas weekend in London and 8 fellow Norwegian entering BRIC that it was a good idea. I am quite satisfied with the time considering it ...

Re: December CTC

Last attempt on this CTC.

I analyzed the last attempt and started out harder which paid of and I pressed the time down by 10 seconds;

1500m 5.07.4 spm 31
1000m 3.20.4 spm 32
500m 1.37.2 spm 33

Total 16.55.3
