Vill du motionera? September 29, 2006

God kväll alla. Hows it going? Its your swede, Mike here, again with an update for you all. I’m a man of my word (most of the time) and when I say I’m going to update this site often, I really mean it. One of my personal pet peevs is when I come to a website that hasnt been updated in like a cagillion years. It makes me cry, seriously. I don’t want this spot to be one of the millions of useless spots on the world wide web in which the owner hasnt updated since like 2002. No my friends, I will keep you up to date, and when I mean up to date, I mean UP to date.

Things in Uppsala are great. The weather this morning was like KABLAM! BOOM! sunshine out of nowhere. I personally love autumn and this season in Sweden is just spectaular. In the coming weeks I’ll bring your way some pics of the leaves changing, etc. One thing that I have really appriciated since I’ve been in Sweden is the opportunity to do things that I found time to put off (aka procrastinate on) while I was in Bellevue. I don’t have the “normal” tv shows to waste my time, I don’t have my “normal” group of friends to slack off with. Thus I’ve been doing certain things differently, for example, working out every day. I got a membership to Friskies&Svettis almost immediatly when I arrived in Uppsala and I try to get out there every day to either lift or run or both. Its about a 20 min walk to get there but well worth it and nice senery on the way. Recently I’ve been working out with a friend in my coridoor named Jan, from Cologne, Germany. This Jan guy from Cologne is 185cm of pure muscle. Just check out his pic (after a work out we had today)!

He has a good time pushing me and showing me new techniques on weights that I would never have figured out in a million years. Jan speaks perfect german (duh!), great swedish and decent english. For all the ladies out there, he is also single! *snicker* Mark: Don’t be jealous, you’ll always be thebigswede’s “real” workout buddy – Jan is simply a suitable temporary replacment.

I alla fall. Ryan and Meg are visiting Karl and myself tomarrow in Uppsala and we have a full day planned including hitting Gamla Uppsala and doing some genuine Svensk shopping – looking foward to that. I’ll have more pics and stuff for you tomarrow. Up top you can see a pic of some beers I picked up today @ System Bolaget, I think I’m going to enjoy them with some Finish girls from class that invited me over to their coridoor party – wish me luck! 🙂 Peace.
