Long time ago

It has being a long time since I was here. I had a turbulent period on my job and the stress factor was very high. But me and my team stand ground and solved the situation. It's much better now. The price I have to pay,was an increased blood pressure.

Anyway. I haven't forgot this excellent site. I celebrated my first re-birth anniversary at May 11:th. I ran two 6 hours race. One in March and I missed he marathon distance with 206 meters! Arrgh! But I got my revenge in the beginning…

Back to training

At last I have a medication that works. Yesterday I was out for a 14 km run (in slow pace). Today I was out again for 16 km (slower pace than yesterday). It makes me feel good. I have extra attention to my average pulse. I don't want it to go above 150. Now I will have some rest from training and to recover. That's important too.

Away for a while.

Hmmm... It was a while ago since I was here. I'm sorry for that. There has been both up's and down's during this time. But it's going in right direction. Since my 6 hours race in november I had a lot of problem with my kne. I finnaly got the diagnosis atrosis. It means it will work to run but hurt sometimes. I have a wonderful doctor. She helped me to adjust my medicines and now I got the correct mix which will work for my training. I have started up my running again (but it's not any fast…

Scary flashbacks

Today I got the word that a working collegue to me passed away in stroke. She was heading home and and got the stroke when was on the way to get in to the car. Other collegues found her on the parking besides her car. She was transported to the emergency - in the same place there I was fighting for my life 6 months earlier. Another collegue was there to visit her. And today when she told me about it I found out that she has been taken to the same room there I was laying for 8 days.

I home from my 6 hours run. It didn't went well. I was forced to give up after a littele more than 3 hours and 21,5 km. It was nothing regarding to my Ad and something like that. This time it was pain in my right knee that made it impossible to continue. Of course I'm very dissapointed but this status will not last any long. Next time I will get my revenge.

Tomorrow it's exactly 6 months since my AD, so running 21,5 km must be OK.

But we AD-people know how to fight and we…

Tomorrow is the day

Tomorrow I will start in a 6 hours footrace around a small lake in the city of Boras in Sweden. I hope to reach the marathon distance and I admit that I'm a little bit nervous, but just a little bit. I will think you all. Tomorrow I will tell you how it went...

Have a nice weekend all of you  :-)

25 hours spinning with an AD


I’m back to report from my latest event. The weekend 27-28 of October this year (2012) I participated in an event called Rosa Dygnet – free translation: the Pink day. This is an event to raise money for the Swedish breast cancer research (Pink Ribbon – Sweden) and it’s annual. The main event there is a 25 hour spinning, containing 25 different one hour contiguous spinning classes. I have participated in this event since the start, six years ago and it’s very important for me to do…

My story and my dreams


I will warn you for two things. First I can’t be brief so this will be a long story. Second. My English is not perfect, especially the medical terms, but I’m learning, so I apologize if my English is poor sometimes. However I think you will understand me anyway (I took help of Google translation sometimes). Now to the story.

My name is Stefan Manning and I'm a dedicated ultra-runner born 1956. I'm living in a small town called Partille about 10 km east from Gothenburg in…
