B2R sizing vs Merrell?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mikael Evander Aug 12, 2014. 8 Replies

With the nice summer sale on B2R shoes, I get kind of tempted to buy a pair. Have anyone tested both the B2R and the Merrell trail gloves (that I'm using currently) and could comment on how they…Continue

Hi. I think I've read some recommendations on this somewhere but I can't seem to find them anywhere. I've been enjoying a cold (or something similar) the last week and a half, and how hope that it's…Continue

Getting back in the game

Posted on October 6, 2014 at 1:14pm 3 Comments

And rather than spending my summer running, the pain I've been experiencing in my right foot got worse and I eventually had to withdraw from running for 6 weeks :(

On a brighter side, I've been allowed to start running again and have been able to go up to 6.5 km so far without any problems. My physiotherapist…


Mountain goating

After more than five weeks of almost no training at all (due to a very prolonged virus infection) I was finally able to pick up my training again. I also went on a one week vacation with my family to the Swedish mountain and managed to get two runs and one hike up a mountain done. 

The Swedish mountain are fairly old and therefore do not have very sharp peaks. They've been rounded by the glaciers during the ice age. One would think that this makes it easier to run but it also…

Yesterday was one of my planned races before my current goal of a half-marathon this year. This particular 10k race is in my hometown and draws about 5000 people every year so it's equal parts race and festivities. 

As the course is rather flat and I've now spent 4 months working on running form and transitioning to minimalist shoes, I was hoping to be able to get close to my personal best from 4 years ago (which was the last time I did some serious…
