New goals

  1. Several 5K races
  2. More 10K races
  3. A few more half marathons

I may never be a fullyfletched marathon runner. I am fine with that. Truly I am.

191 not 202

I was utterly convinced I finished my first Half Marathon in 3,22 hours – but I checked the homepage apparently I finished in 3,11 (191 minutes not 202.)

Since I already completed two 10K runs, and one 5K run last year I decided to signup for my first Half Marathon already.

I cancelled my application – only to re-cancel it a few weeks later. By September I conciously decided to start follow a training schedule specifically for Half Marathon.

I did not tell anyone of my plans – not until a few months later did I tell my brother , but only that I had signed up for my first Half Marathon – not when it was. My parents was not told until February and by then they already made other plans.

It suited me fine since neither of my parents thought I was fit enough to finish a Half Marathon after just a year of concious running and racing. As a result I had no family member or friend at the race to cheer me on.

My father was pretty disappointed that he was unable to come- especially after I told him that I managed to finish the race in 3,22 (202 minutes) but when I checked the logged results it said 3,11 (191 minutes) so I finished my first Half Marathon on an even faster time than I originally thought.

There may be hope for North Korea

The US 45th president resembles no other, first of all he doesn’t have political experience – he was a succesful businessman up until the point that he decided to run for the Republicans presidental candidates election.

He has braged about being the first president that will bring peace to the Korean peninsula and thereby ending the Korean conflict and a war that so far lasted for three or four generations.

The sad thing about this is that I think he may be right.

He is the only American president that has appeared to have a more positive outlook on the North Korean leader.

They both share several things they both like praise and compliments and appears to have huge egos. Both are proven to be unpredictable.

However if the US president attempts should fail I for one would not be surprised.

The North Korean leader is far from stupid, I think there’s a chance he is using Trump’s own tactics against him.

Kim Jong Un should not be trusted – the only reason he appears to be positive towards denuclearization of North Korea is simply that he has run out of funds. Once he has enough funds again I believe he will resume back to nuclearizaton of North Korea.

What I’ve done since September

No pain no gain – I decided to sign up for my first Half Marathon even though I only managed to complete I 5K run and 1 10 K run.

Ever since that day my workout routine became even more disciplined;

September consisted of 5 long distance runs, 4 interval, and 4 speed sessions. That made a total of 13 sessions and 157 kilometers.

By October I hit a wall and scaled down some on my training (3 interval sessions, 2 speed sessions, and 2 long distance sessions.) Just over 100 K with 102K.

November consisted of 4 long distance sessions, 4 interval sessions, and 4 speed sessions. Making a total of 122K.

By December I finally reached 21K during my long distance runs; 2 long distance sessions were 21 K. Besides the 2 long distance sessions of 21K, there were 3 shorter long distance sessions, 4 interval sessions, and 4 speed sessions. A whooping 169K.

January consisted of 4 long distance sessions, 5interval sessions, and 5 speed sessions. 159K.

February were 4 long distance sessions, 4 interval sessions, and 4 speed sessions 144K.

March consisted of 5 long distance sessions, 4 interval sessions, and 4 speed sessions I managed to reach 180Ks.

April was the same month as the race – as a result I only did 1 long distance session, 3 interval sessions, and 3 speed sessions which meant I only covered 66K during April.

On the other hand I managed a total of 1099 Ks.

Även Svenska Akademien kunde bevittna sexuella trakasserier och sexism. Istället för att utreda och ge lämplig och motsvarande lämplig bestraffning blir det alltså återigen kvinnorna som utses till syndabocken.

Är Svenska Akademien så pass föråldrad att den inte bör få finnas kvar eller går det att rädda genom moderniseringar och förändringar?
