Running 10K

Yesterday I was away late night to do one of the larges 10K runs in Europe. Over 35000 runners in the same t-shirt running around one of the islands in the center of Stockholm. We are the main sponsor of the run so we get to run for free and we also have access to the VIP-tent (The Stadium tent in the back of the field).

Inside we got all kind of snacks…

…but I brought my own…

During the day before we went to Stockholm I got a lot of nice food at the “market” outside mu door.

I ate one and a half of those sausages and I also tried some of the “bacon”. So the intake for Saturday was

The run was a bit slower than last year even thou I did run a bit more. Out of the 10K I walked maybe 1,5k. Two of the “steel” hills and then some…

I got home at 2am so I did not post anything here…

 

Today (0:30 AM on the bus home) I had the bacon and olives in the picture from yesterday and in the evening I had two nice steaks with sauce bearnaise.

The intake for Sunday was

Ugly food

Today I went on an “after work” dinner and I had a huge burger without the bun and fries. The picture does not really make the burger justice. It really looks ugly… Almost as brown and boring as my own food…

The intake was after some olives at home later in the evening

10K on Saturday night

On Saturday night I will participate in the “Midnight run” 10K in Stockholm and today I got my T-shirt, VIP “bracelet” and the timing thingy… My training has not really gone as good as I have wanted so I do not think I will bea able to run very fast but I will try to run 90% of the track. There are two steep “hills” where I will walk, but the rest of the track I hope I can run.

The company I work for is one of the two main sponsors of the run and we get to stay in the VIP-area before and after the run. Pretty nice place to be… A lot of food and drinks (for those who eat and drinks carbs…)… 🙂

For dinner tonight I had pre grilled chicken again… This time with mayo and olives.

The intake was

Trying a new butter

Today I tried doing a spinach butter and it was pretty ok. Looks really boring so I will try to do it with some more colors. To the butter I fried a couple of large pork chops.

People are strange

A large part of my job is related to labour laws and negotiations with unions and employees. I do spend some times now and then on a infamous forum on the internet called flashback. It is a Swedish forum with almost no rules and a high level on anonymity. I read a lot of the labour laws posts to be able to “know my foe”… Kind of… Today I found a question from a guy who was upset because his employer fired him. So what did he do to get fired? He got into a fight that he won… The fact that he won the fight was what made him upset he got fired… In my book you get fired if you get into a fist fight with a colleague regardless if you win or not… Oh, well, thats part of a hard day at work…

For dinner I fried chicken liver and as usual I seasoned with only salt, pepper and a hint of curry.

I also had some beer sausages so the intake was
