This 20min time span summed up the Olympics. Everybody was watching, willing and wanting success. And i think it changed the way sport is looked upon in our country.
Shortly after the olympics i traveled out to norway. I have moved in to a small house in Lillehammer where i stay with two other skiers. It's a nice little house, except for the first 12 days we had no internet. But now successfully installed with both internet and tv things seem to be running a lot more smoothly. It is hard to believe we even coped without internet.
Training has been going well, a lot of hours recently and a few hard sessions. This week i had a running with poles interval session up the alpine resort Hafjell. They are having a world cup downhill mountain bike race in a few weeks and we ended up running down the world cup trail at the end of the session, which was pretty cool.
I have also been to see my first Norwegian film without english subtitles. Kon-tiki is a film about the norwegian explorer, Thor Heyerdahl, as he sailed across the pacific ocean from south america to the Polynesian Islands on a raft constructed of balsa logs in 1947. Anyway i survived and just about understood everything.
Next week im going to be going on a training camp with the british team in Torsby at the ski tunnel. Apart from that, not much is on the cards. All for now.
