The Open – Crossfit Games 2018

This is my 3rd year in doing Crossfit and my 3rd Open and again my goal was to remain a top 50% crossfit athlete in my age group in Sweden.

In 2016 I was 41.8% total in the world, 41% in Europe and 50% in Sweden.

In 2017 I wanted to place better and do better. I finished 40.7% in the World, 39% in Europe and 50.2% in Sweden.  What I found interesting with 2017 was that I strated off in the 60’s world and Europe, but over 70 in Sweden and with 3 strong results in 17.3, 17.4 and 17.5 I was able to move up the ladder.

Swedish Short Course Nationals 2018

It’s been another year of swimming.  But this year has truly been a comeback year for me. I have a great team with people I look forward to meeting at the pool, pushing them, having them push back.

I did not get any PBs at this meet, but I am happy with my progress.  I will get faster again, but for now… only click below if you want the really long version (wink: Ed don’t click) Continue reading

Vansbro 3 km OW – 2017

I started writing this 6 weeks ago, but for some reason I never found the time to site down and finish it.  Better late than never.

Vansbro 2017 is probably the least planned race of my life, if you don’t count all the times Viola counts down from three to race to the car when I pick her up from daycare. Continue reading

The Open 2017

I haven’t written as much about the Open this year as I did last year, but here comes a summary for those of you interested.

My goal was to be last years final placement.  I was very close to being better in all three categories:
Masters Men 40-44 World Wide (total 20898) I was 8735  – 41.8%
Masters Men 40-44 Europe (2558) I was 1049 – 41%
Masters Men 40-44 Sweden (240) I was 120 – 50% Continue reading

Beach Event 2016

Last year Crossfit Växjö won the Beach Event at Falkenberg when Fredrik crossed the finish line with the fastest time and I came in fourth. This year Fredrik was away and my participation in the event was doubtful considering what happened last Saturday.

But the weather forecast was sunny and warm, so the family woke up early and we headed to the west coast. Continue reading

Kustjagaren (Swimrun) – one down, two to go

So Saturday was the first of three big races in July. Around 1600 Friday I pack my car and head to Karlskrona with my Swimrun partner Fredrik and Peter. Its a short ride to Karlskrona. We arrive just before 1800, check into our room, and then make our way over to registration. We get our racing bibs with lucky nr 11 and then reset our timing chip before heading over to Nivå for a tasty burger.
