I am in Oslo for the ECSS (European College of Sport Science) annual conference at the moment... This is just a really quick summary of events so far. Too tired for all the details at the moment. More to come, but a bit is better than nothing.
Victoria 1/2 IM & sprint - team did SO well!
Flight to Paris was OK, didn't get too restless and even managed to get a bit of sleep (I am usually unable to sleep on planes).
Wondered around a certain Parisian neighborhood for a few hours (I can't remember the name right now). It was pretty cool. Took lots of pictures (will post some soon).
The Paris airport REALLY sucks.
It is still light out at 11:30pm in Oslo.
The accommodation we booked was pretty messed up. There was no one there to give me a key to the apartment and I only managed to get in at 3am. That place was bad. Very bad... got a hotel room instead, but it was too far from the congress centre... so moved to another hotel this morning.
Bruised my right shoulder from carrying my 20kg bag around Oslo. Yap, it is bruised... I really need to get myself one of those real suitcase, and stop overpacking!!!
The sun is shining at around 3am.
Cab driver from hell this morning. Seriously. Got out of that cab after he only drove for about 50m because he kind of scared me!
Good presentations today - started at 9, finished at 18:30. Pretty full on!
I like Oslo. It has a good vibe. Too bad it is so expensive (at least I was warned...)
Norwegian Olympic training centre visit tomorrow evening, after another full day of presentations.
Thats it for now... more details to come at some point :-)
