First practice 2014/2015

Had the first practice with the coaches and 3 people (those who are here already) from my team this morning. Felt really good to be out there in the court as a team again. Even though Lina and I didn’t sleep much last night, she got back around midnight and the jet-lag just didn’t let us sleep… It was a pretty short practice, just hitting balls for a little more than an hour, exactly what I needed. Tomorrow the whole team should be here and we have a compliance and team meeting and probably practice in the afternoon. Feels great to be back! Go Ducks!

In the US again!

I’m in Seattle! After a long flight and a lot of waiting in different queues and for my suitcase (and some running at London Heathrow airport to make my flight) I’m now sitting here eating an small expensive chicken salad waiting for my last short flight to Eugene (I have a 6h layover now…). Will reward myself with a vanilla latte from Starbucks soon, I have missed Starbucks over the summer! Have a feeling I might spend too much money there the next coming weeks..

Next time I’m writing a blog post I’ll be in my apartment in Eugene! Can’t wait!

Aloe Vera Drink

I just bought home this drink a few days ago and bought it in natural and pomegranate flavor, and I love them both! Too bad I didn’t start buying them earlier this summer because I’m in doubt they have something similar in the states. Anyone who knows if there is any sugar free Aloe Vera drinks that are made natural and with almost no calories in the US? And where to find it? :)

Last day in Sweden

The time has gone so fast but also so slow up to this day, when I was working during summer every day felt so long and like the weeks lasted forever, but these three last weeks have been flying by! I can barely believe that I am leaving to go back to Eugene early tomorrow morning. I have had a great summer with of course both ups and downs, but mostly ups :) and I am excited to go back to the states. I’m ready to start my last year in college and make the best year out of it! And then I will be back in Sweden in the middle of June 2015 (!!) hehe

Today I had tennis practice at 6.45 am, so I’m getting used to wake up early again hehe, and it went well! Since I am a morning person I have no problem with getting up early to workout, I actually prefer working out in the morning! After the tennis I did some weights for the whole body since I know it will be a few days without any tennis or weights now with traveling and so on… Now I’m just at home, trying to finish my packing, and just relaxing. I booked a spinning session for this afternoon, which I’m really excited about too! Has been a while since I went to spinning now, and I know it will not happen in the states, at least not often…

I will try to write something in the blog from the layovers when I travel if the internet is good enough! Otherwise I’ll write when I’m back in my lovely apartment in Eugene! :)

Biceps & Triceps

Went to the gym this morning after my visit at the dentist, but my teeth looked all good and strong so no follow up meeting :) At the gym I had a biceps/triceps workout (the last strength workout here before I leave to the states) and it went alright, not the best and not the worst workout. I did improve my weights in some exercises, for example DB hammer curls, which is always fun because then you know you’re getting stronger and you’re doing things right!

This is what I did today:

  • Biceps curls machine 10×2
  • DB Kickbacks 10Ex4
  • Biceps curls barbell 6×4
  • Triceps cable push-down 10×4
  • DB Alt. Hammer curls 8Ex4
  • Triceps OH cable push 12×4
  • DB biceps curls 8×3
  • DB Triceps OH press 10×3

I don’t know the right names for all exercises, so I just came up with some names I think describes the exercise :)
