What does Forever Better mean to you?
Forever Better to me is to make great and smart decisions and to do the right priorities to become better than the rest. I work with a strategy where I am asking myself every night if I did my best today to become a champion. If I feel tired one day or if I am sick – the best decision is to rest. When I am going to sleep that night I can feel proud of myself because I took the right decision. Forever Better is about to be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be – everyday.
How does your training routine look like?
I am going to a school where I have chosen running as a focus, which means that I am getting time to work out during the school hours. My training routine depends on what time of the year it is – if it is during the season when I compete, I exercise less than when I do not compete. But I always practice at least 5 times a week, where strength, intervals and distance are included. During the build-up period I do between 5-10 workouts.
What are your goals for the future?
I have both short and long term goals. One of my short term goals is to qualify to the European youth Championships held in Hungary this summer. I also want to run personal bests in all of my distances. My long term goals is to participate and run a final in the Olympics.
What’s one piece of kit you could not live without?
My foam roller and my C-vitamin drink that I am drinking every morning are something I could not live without!
Why is Rest and Recovery important to your performance?
Rest and Recovery is important to me because without it I would not get the maximal performance from my workouts. If I am not getting the maximal performance from practice it is impossible for me to perform my best on my competitions. I need rest and recovery to achieve my goals.
