And that's the end of that chapter....

My new playground

On Tuesday I moved out of my flat in Sweden and headed back to the UK. After 2 years in Stockholm it is time for a change, and I will now be living in Sheffield. Sheffield is the home of outdoor sport in England, and I think it will be a great place to prepare through the winter, both physically and technically. Close by is the Peak District, with endless hilly terrain running. The Lake District is only 2 hours away, and being right in the middle of England, I will be well positioned to travel to races. There are also many other top orienteers living in Sheffield, and I look forward to training hard with them.

I will start a part time Masters degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University on Monday, and I will do some part time work as well (coaching and mapping).
