2009-12-09 Earth Course video...
2009-12-09 Video from first day of training.
Just like the names of the small towns around Stockholm...
First time on a range in a while...
Practicing at Al Hamra Golf Club in Ras-Al-Kaimah, one hour from Dubai.
Our hotel is not exactly finished. We are staying with the Alinghi Team who is training for the upcoming America's Cup. When me and Pierre go on a training camp, we bring golf clubs, some gear and protein powder. When Alinghi Team go on a training camp they bring 100 people, a 30 meter long cathamaran with a 60 meter tall mast and a sail which is 1100 sqare meters big and 6 other boats. I feel like I'm not taking my job seriously enough:)
Good form Pierre!
Back with a video in a sec with some gym training. I saw some of you want to see how we work out. Took some footage of three exercises we do a lot.
Pretty good view for Ole up there!
Snow in Oslo, rain in Stockholm...Sun in Dubai?
It must have been 50 snow plowing trucks in a row...Cool:)
What up Mr. Beef Johansson? What up Mac as well?! We are both so proud of our babies!
What up bad non-protein breakfast?
For the first time in my life, I'm going to try to read a book on the flight. 2 pages on the first flight was a 200% increase of pages from any previous flight. I'm on a roll!
2009-12-07 It's weird how we athletes are...It feels like we have to do everything to an extreme. Work out hard, train hard, compete hard, relax hard, etc. I'm no different, if golfers can be called athletes.
When I tried to eat like a horse last week, it went great for the first few days but it was way too much food to keep the same intake over a whole week. I was about to puke after every meal. So, my plan of eating like crazy failed and at the end of the week, I ate less than normal because I was too tired of the even looking at food.
I overdo pretty much everything...my swing coach Pete always say that I want to be good yesterday, and that sums it all up.
So, now me and Pierre are here at Oslo airport waiting for a flight to Dubai to see the sun again. Always, when I go somewhere for a training camp, I am totally pumped and so excited to, once again, do everything to an extreme. Work out hard, train hard and do the craziest on course exercises I can come up with. And by the end of the week, I'm either too tired to get out of bed or I'm hurt from lifting more weight than I can handle. So, what should I do to relax a bit and pace myself so I get the most out of this camp? Maybe talking to Pierre might help...When he is with me we have a good schedule when working out, the only problem is that I can sneak out when he isn't looking and do an extra session. Maybe I should follow a little softer plan and reward myself somehow after if I'm able to do it. It would be a big surprise to me if I can follow a plan...Maybe the reward should be that I'm allowed 3 workouts in one day?:)
Back very soon with what Pierre has to come up with...don't expect much:)
