When to have the first race

Now I have finally uploaded a header for the blog. Not sure how long I will keep it, but for now it will do – I kind of even like it 🙂

Me and TheEd are discussing whether it is better for me to continue with one more three-week period of the build up or to start with the race program. It depends very much on when I actually will have my first race. As it looks now I think my first race will be Vinterspringet (10k, Mariestad) taking place 26th of February. Earlier than that I’m sure the snow and ice will be a big obstacle, and maybe even then – sometimes it snows until late March here in Sweden.

Another big obstacle might be that my wife’s delivery is postponed a couple of weeks. We expect by the 3rd of February (so she’s quite big now – for her. She’s always small anyways :)).

We’ll see what TheEd thinks of that time for the first race considering my programs and all.. Until then I will go on with the sub 40 as planned.
