Time to leave..

..leave for Chile and the first race of the season. We’ll take on Tierra Viva Adventure Race, a 5 day non-stop race in the Northern Patagonia. I feel well prepared after eight weeks on the road training in Örnsköldsvik, Thailand, Thanyapura Phuket and Playitas Resort. I have to say, Thanyapura, what a place, can’t believe the incredible set up they have there. Pro athlete coaches such as Jurgen Zäck and Nich Gates, their own test centers where we got to give it all, testing FPT and Lactate with Tom. I thought I was going to die.. Great service, amazing food just to mention some sweet things from that adventure. However, we went back to Stockholm and Sweden to played a pond hockey tournament for two days before flying down to Fuerteventura, Playitas and two weeks of concentrated and hard training. Except of a lot of training we ended up on their Wall Of Fame with all other Olympic Athletes that covers the wall in the lobby. Pretty cool thing if you as me. I have never been in better shape, and it’s a great feeling. Mentally I’m in the right place too, feeling great.

I’m traveling to Chile with team mates Mikael Lindnord, Marika Wagner and Jonas Andersson today. Starting racing on sunday, April 12th.

It’s been a few hectic days here in Stockholm before and after Easter, running errands all over the place. As always before leaving for a World Serie (World Cup) event.

The last thing my mom said was; -I just want to see pictures from the podium now Staffan!

She know me and she is right. Lest do our best and see where that will take us. Time to preform and make all that training worth it.
