Goal:

I want to get in better shape and have fun exercising. Getting some online "training partners" seems like a good way to start.

Ida Sagberg back on track again, ...

Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

Back on track again, feels good. I finished week 6 of my running schedule, and the blisters are better. Signed up for yoga this autumn and I'm looking so much forward to it! 90 minutes a week for 14 weeks. Yay! I haven't been that social here because I'm in the process of finishing a collection of short stories. I'm about to be published here in Norway with my first book :D Will be back commenting as things calm down a bit in my life :)

    That's awesome, Ida! Congrats on the upcoming book! You'll have to tell me the title! I'm going to want to read it!

    It's in Norwegian, Vittal, and probably won't be translated since it's a short story collection :) But thank you :D

    Ida, Jeg forstår litt Norsk!
    I'm rusty though. I made a trip to Norway in late 2009 :-)

    Vittal: Åh, så gøy! Boka skal hete "Snart er det oss". Literally that means "Soon is it us", but I think a good translation would be "We're next" or "It's our turn soon", or something like that :) It will be out in Norway in october :)

    Flott! Kanskje skal jeg bestille en kopi og oversette den for meg selv :-)

    I spent about 9 days between Oslo and Bergen. Also took the Norway-in-a-Nutshell tour. Ah the memories! Such a beautiful country! I wanted to make it further north to Trondheim and further places, but I have to save something for next time :-)

    How could you learn the language after so little time? Are you cheating with Google Translate? ;-) I live in Tromsø, it's an exotic destination for many people since it's above the Polar Circle with Midnight Sun and Polar Night :-)

    LOL! I learnt a little conversational Norwegian from audio tapes before coming over :-) But yes, Google translate augments my limited knowledge...Caught!

    Oh, Tromsø was one of the places on my list of "need to go there" places! The midnight sun and polar nights are definitely something I have never experienced! I did also want to make it to see the northern lights, but those are less and less frequent nowadays, I hear.

    Not less and less frequent, but the activity goes in waves with about ten years between each peak. At it's best we have very high activity, but it has to be dark out and no clouds for the northern lights to be visible :) Also, it helps to get away from the city and the "light pollution". The darker, the better :) (Oops, that was a long comment. I work as a tourist guide here, so I tend to go on and on ;) )

    Hey, more is the new more, not less! More information the better. I have definitely heard about the light pollution. I experience it first hand here in the US when I went to the Grand Canyon, and could see the Milky way from the (less touristy) North Rim of the canyon, but not from the (more touristy and light polluted) South Rim. It was a beautiful sight. Seeing the Northern Lights is on my "bucket list"!

    If I do end up making it to Tromsø at some point, I'll look you up to be my tourist guide!
