Kerstin Ankargård


Tjejmilen New York

And so we were there and run the 10 kilometers. 11 000 women in start field at Columbus Circle. I, Kerstin, with the goal to run 10 kilometers without walking parts of the course and that the time would be under 1 hour and 30 minutes. Hilkka to run in 70 minutes.

The feeling of running in Central Park to see the surrounding area with skyscrapers in the skyeline makes the idea of running disappear and the focus is elsewhere.  2 kilometres before finish, the idea is only that it sits in the head if I will succeed and that now we need to keep in the target image.

The good feeling to get to the finish line is incredible which later in the evening is celebrated with a glass of Yellow widow. Thanks Hilkka we did good then we both managed to perform and get in goal with the result we wanted.


Sweat and tears

It costs to compete but after 2 days of step competition, I can state that the individual input in step competition gives me a fourth place by 150 employees and that the team is taking a first place when two of the team members are in the top. It's fun with challenges although the body aches and it hurts.

 


Now we challenge the HSF unit Infrastructure

In 20 April Begins Step event in Stockholm County Council. For 1 month shall we go 218 km each Member of the team that is 290 000 steps/person. Law Crocodile consists of Bill Heiding Kentor, Eskil Österberg Kentor, Fredrik Öst Stretch and Kerstin Ankargård from Meditude. Team Infrasteget that challenged us consists of Kerstin Rising HSF, Lenah Hedberg HSF, Lars Klinga HSF, Carina Landberg and Kamran Khazravi HSF. Myself, however, I have thought that I also will challenge the other consulting companies in order to give the whole thing a extra touch.


To break down in order to build up

On Monday February 15 the duo Black and White starts training with PT. Apparently the muscles will be broken down and then rebuilt. It may be true thoug I recognize it from other parts of life. Sometimes you need to remove something old to welcome something new.

While waiting for the breakdown, I focus on group training and good food. Today, a new recipe recommended by White ? and it was really good.

  
  
  


Nutrition and waist size

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about what food I’ll eat when I work out. PT thinks the brain should be set on eating 3 times a day and no snacks. Thinking that it doesn’t fit me, on the other hand, eat half the vegetables, a quarter protein and a quarter carbs at the main objectives feels good. What I exclude is fat not used in cooking and then the olive oil here flown from southern Spain. According to PT to waist circumference to be half of my length which is 82 cm so now we need to work out and think diet. Tomorrow fifth week and possibly the sixth training session, along with Lenah, Zumba, Bodypump.


PT instructor 

Now I have met a PT instructor in Saga who will coach me to reach my goal for the summer. The first tip weightlifting at least 2 times a week to start directing the body to burn fat and not muscle. Makes sense. Because I have my training companion and we coach each other so we will run PT duo saving some economically then it is not free.
