In my project #FasterThanSuperman, where I try to become the most aerodynamic triathlete in the world, I have learned that “its all about the engine” is not true.

It was a nightmare. The preparations for Lofoten Triathlon Extreme distance was less than optimal. Less than 2 weeks after Norseman and using the time between to work one week continuously 12 hours nightshift. The few days in transit was used to unpack, wash and repack.

Norseman was the A-race this year and my goal was to win. At least that was what I said to my sponsors and everyone else. In that, I failed. I didn’t win.

More power or better aerodynamic? This is my thought about this existential question. Would you rather increase your FTP with 10 % or reduce your aerodynamic drag with 10 %? If you gave this option to triathletes I am certain that most would opt for the increased FTP. But it is the best option? This … Fortsett å lese 10 % more power or 10 % more aero?
Dietary supplements are big business. The global market for 2018 was estimated to an astonishing 115 billion USD worth of vitamins, botanicals, omega-3s, minerals and protein. The question is, which should you, the triathlete take? My short answer is, as few as possible. The reason is simple, they basically don’t work.

Today I turn 33. Becoming a year older always make me reflect on the fact that I am getting older. I am not in my early 20s anymore, for sure.

Værmeldingene er gode. Kanskje helt perfekte for oss triatleter med 15-19 grader med delvis skyer og sol. Halv-Fet er en utrolig hyggelig konkurranse og meget godt organisert til tross for en noe spartansk organsisasjon. Den ligger 40 minutters kjøring fra Oslo sentrum og du trenger ikke å sjekke inn sykkelen dagen før eller typisk omfattende prosedyre … Fortsett å lese Er du klar for Halv-Fet på lørdag?
