This week I was working with the radio systems all the week and I managed only two workouts which felt a little bad but that’s life sometimes. On Sunday I left for Basingstoke, UK for training with Motorola on their TETRA system so the next week is all about running in Basingstoke.
Day by day
- Jogging at Järvafältet. My nice 8 km route there was begging for me to come out and it felt really good. Nice tempo as well, around 8 min/km which is not bad considering…
- Slammertorp route here in Kallhäll. All the way, the most hilly part as well. 7:33 tempo and a nice runners high actually.
Not enough workouts really, will regard this week as a maintaining week but not very developing. Although I managed to up the pulse a bit with some good VO2max results as well. Next week I will be running in Basingstoke so we will have to see how that works out :)
For the longer runs that lasts up to 100 minutes of energetic exercise. I really like running to most of these songs and they give me a lot of energy.
This weeks playlist is the soundtrack of alien life. All music are parts of movies that I like from films about life extraordinnaire.

The very popular music service Spotify is about to limit its free use for people who has been using the service for more than 6 months. People who have already used the free Spotify service for more than 6 months (prior to November last year) will have the limits reinforced on may 1st and new users will start counting when their accouint is created.
The limits means you may only listen 10 hours a month and play the same tune maximum 5 times.
I believe it is pressure from the music industry behind this, in order for spotify to be able to offer their music to unpaid subscribers in some fashion the commercial spots are not enough for the industry. We have seen several labels lately pull music from the Spotify service and hopefully by doing this the music will come back, at least for the paying users!
And in actual fact, the 99 SEK a month it costs us here in Sweden (and many broadband ISP’s have deals where you get Spotify for a discount or for a free period) means you can listen to it on your mobile, in your home and so on unlimited by these new rules.
I’m a happy paying customer and so is my wife and Spotify is still the best music service out there – especially in comparison to anything the record industry has produced so far…
This is a collection of music I like to listen to while I am driving. It is a pretty long playlist, more than 2 hours of music but it is suiteable for driving alone as well as together with good friends.
So enjoy a roadtrip experience with this playlist.
This weeks playlist is an absurt mixture of new and old, forgotten things and stuff that was never really forgotten but found again anyway.
Enjoy it here

These are for me the most prominent EBM bands I was listening to in high-school and later and still comes back to now and then. Now thanks to spotify I can share a link with Ichimusais Essential EBM where you can listen to some of these ground breaking bands greatest…
Here is your essential guide to Electronic Body Music.

Enjoy on your way to work or just if you are suffering from insomnia for some reason…
Now there is a spotify client both for the Android and for the iPhone. The client can also sync music for offline listening. This is such great news, I can bring my playlists from spotify where me wherever I go and listen anywhere as long as there is space on my memory card everything should be dandy.
The iPhone version apparently stops playing in the background something Apple demanded it should do, but on the Android background playing works GREAT so now I can strem music while I jog and can set up the playlist on my computer at home or pretty much everywhere and then just sync it with my phone.
So now the phone not only tracks my workout times and distance using the GPS, it also plays the music to my mood and this is something I have been waiting for some time now.
Time to become a premium member, the ad-financed version of spotify does not cover the mobile version but I don’t care. 99 SEK for a month is nothing compared to the joy it is bringing…
