Welcome to my blog! This is a site where you can keep up to date on my life as a full-time athlete in the sport of cross country skiing. You can expect regular updates throughout the year as I report on training, racing, life in general and maybe even some school. Sponsors, family, friends and fans: Enjoy!

What i have been up to lately.

I would own these guys with the unicycle training i have done lately. Yesterday i did 800 m repeats at the track. I would just spin out and still only be at 14 km/h with the little 20" wheel.

I've also been kicking a soccer ball around a little bit.

There are many things that can improve your skiing. I can balance on a unicycle while pedalling at like 140 rpm and while avoiding the sand patches and pot holes at the Yellowknife track. I can juggle a soccer ball for a few minutes. Balance and body awareness can generate talent.

Remember: make the ball happy.

"what I have been up to lately" apparently doesn't include much in the way of Blog updates. Time to crank up the machine again Thomsen. We're all getting bored out here.
