|Snow running is usually slower than this...|
Here's what else I have planned:
Although skiing is great, the snow makes it hard to get in any decent running. Next week I'm headed to Tenerife for a training camp with OSI track team. I'm looking forward living the run, eat, repeat life for a week. We don't get a lot of sun in Norway this time of year, some I'm sure the vitamin D will be good too.
|I hope I get to run in shorts some this year! Here on Bispen during my honeymoon.|
In late April I plan to run the 10K at Sentrumsløpet in Oslo. I hope I can finally throw off the jinx from the last year - I got sick before both of the 10K I raced (exhibit A, exhibit B)! I'm definitely faster than when I ran my PR of 42:58 a year and a half ago. Although I'm a little scared to say it out loud, I think I could be in shape to run a sub-40 min 10K in April if I play my cards right. I'm at least read to try really, really hard!
|All-out speed is not my strength, but I'm willing to try! From Holmenkollstafetten last year.|
Switching gears completely, I'll be going back to Oslo Ecotrail for my first ultra of the year at the end of May. Although I would love revenge on the 45K (now 50K) course, I've decided this is the year of go big or go home. I'll be race the 80K distance on my home trails. My goal is to finish strong, because really this will just be a training race for the big things to come during the summer.
|I spent the last 25K of Ecotrail 2016 dealing with a demon cramp. Hopefully I can do better this time!|

|Who wouldn't want to go back to this?|
What are your plans for 2018?
