La Suédoise 🇸🇪🇫🇷

This is Friday evening, and I have been a bit unlucky. I haven’t been able to go for exercise as much as I would like to. However, I went running when I was in the countryside this week and I am still rather fit. Hässelbyloppet is on Sunday so I will just stay at home til then. I do not dare to leave home due to viruses since I do not wan’t to cancel. It will be a nice excursion. Like the randonées in the Pyrénées. No mountains though, but exercise. I love that. As usual, I share some inspiring music.

Countryside

The countryside is unique in a way since it is so calm, and that it is really dark during night time. It was chilly when I arrived. Moon light. And my sweetie waited for me. She was happy to see me. I had some hot chocolate, and now I am preparing for tomorrow. I will run, last run before Hässelbyloppet on Sunday. My sweetie is waiting for her walk.

October Sunday

I am not getting used to that it is chilly. Autumn, falling leaves etc. The truth is that I do not want to change to winter jacket. Today I have thought of my Sundays I had in Norway. It was always very calm since everything was closed but the petrol stations. I remember I stayed at home watching movies, and that I also did some exercise. This afternoon I did some training. I have learnt my body, and know that performance vary from time to time. I was a little late, so I had to run to be on time.

I am happy because tomorrow I will se my little sweetie. I will run on Tuesday, and then walk her to church as usual. Found this cute little movie from Chile. The annual puppy military parade. So many cuties.

Catching up latest news

I like to read and follow what happens locally, but also internationally with regard to sports, religion, politics etc. Right now, I think that Brexit is the most interesting news to follow. The new prime minister Boris Johnson must be very busy, and he definitely has a great challenge because he needs some kind of agreement with the European Union before leaving. Theresa May has done a lot of pre-work, but it takes time since it is rather complicated at many levels. What will be most interesting, according to me, is to see how free market forces will contribute. A lot of people are worried about trade, but trade will be automatically regulated I believe. But a helping hand from Boris Johnson is definitely needed. Guidance rather than regulations.

Next year there will be presidential election in the USA. These elections are interesting since they are very clear. How candidates are promoted and selected within respective parties (democrats and republicans). In the USA various companies are very important since they reflect employment and common wealth. In a way I have an impression that they are more important compared to other countries. I might be wrong. In Sweden there is not much talk about companies, but when I saw this headline in the news I got happy. Small companies are important. And should get more attention. That is for sure. Or what is your opinion?

Sharing some Swedish music this Friday. For weekend.

 

Autumn & exercise

Today has been a day off, and I got my number for “Hässelbyloppet”. This will be my third course this year, and this is the final one. 10 km is perfect. No marathon. Since I have had some muscle pain, I go for easy training right now. No running but other forms of training. So, this evening was cardio, strength and yoga. I need a lot of stretch. I really hope it will not be so cold next Sunday. On Tuesday I will run and then walk with my sweetie. I miss her.
