Monday, June 11, 2012 // Aarungen
I’m pleased with my performance in the World Cups and it gives me confidence towards London. After Duisburg World Cup I had 4 days with easy training, before I started on a new microcycle with solid volum training. Aarungen training center will be my home for the next 2 months. No motorboats, quiet and relaxed on the countryside, and only a 30min drive from my apartment. I’ll probably go home on days with not so much training, just to break up the environment so I don’t get bored the last week before Olympics. My wife, Mira, is also qualified for the Olympics, but she will be in Essen, Germany until the European Championships 22 June. She has a good training group there and will get help from the club trainers, and with the German girls being the best in the world, I’m sure the coaches know a thing or two…. My trainingpartners, Jo Sondre Solhaug and Daniel Salbu, are also here. The rowers qualified five guys for the Olympics, they are also at Aarungen and we are a good gang training harder than ever before. Next event is the European Championships from the 22-24 June in Zagreb.
