I did it!

I think I finally managed to get the “new post” thingy to work… 🙂

So sorry for the lack of post. A lot of things have happened since the last post. Most important! I did it!

I finished my first marathon! Not a very good time and it was dark before I crossed the line, but I did it!

I did not get last in most of the categories. I was probably the last Swedish runner, but I was not the last man, nor the last of my age group. In total I was number 52550… 🙂

The race was actually harder than I thought. 42 KM is long… And it took me 8 hours. So being active 8 hours was a bit tough.

One of my plans for the race was to do it without adding much energy and trust my ketogenic diet. I did have 50g of cheese and 100g of salami sausage a couple of hours before the race. During the race I only had water. No food nor “energy drinks”. I did try some gatorade but I spat it out. Way to sweet for me…

The only lasting “damage” after the race was a bit muscle fatigue in my thighs so stairs was not the best for me. But now I am fine.

After I got home from New York I had a couple of days free and then I left for Palma Mallorca and the Low Carb Universe conferees in Port de Soller.

I will try to write about the conference tomorrow or Monday. Right now I am just pleased I got the posting working again…

    Congrats on the race, but what happened afterwards? Haven’t seen new blog or comment on the blog since Nov 19. It is now Dec 10. I hope you are okay.
