Brev til jenta mi :-)
Ja jenta mi nå er det gått atter en måned siden du forlot oss. Men jeg merker din kjærlighet i huset med voldsom kraft. Det første som slo meg etter du ble borte var å selge huset, men nå står det bare klarere og klarere frem at vi skal bo her. Det har blitt en varm atmosfære her som om du har fylt huset med din kjærlighet til meg og den lille mannen. Han er så flink og tapper og vi har ingen problemer med å huske all den fantastiske tiden vi hadde sammen. Vi lar oss selv være triste når savnet er stort, men det går fort over i latter og glede når vi tenker på alt det fine. Vi har solgt hytta, men alt fått en ny. Det blir rart å møte julen uten deg jenta mi, men vi skal være her hjemme så da er du med uansett J
Fortsett og pass på oss fra din plass hos Herren J
Til Pusen :-)
Pusen min nå er det 3 mnd siden du gikk i fra oss og vi tenker på deg hver dag. Jeg har just vært på Verdens Sterkeste Mann på Malta hvor vi forlovet oss 13.9.99 rett føre finalen på Verdens Sterkeste Mann 99. Jeg er glad igjen, og jeg føler at du sender meg styrke når det trengs. Tapet av deg har fått meg til å se ting litt mer i perspektiv.
Rart å se nå hvor enormt stor betydning Strongman har for enkelte, som det hadde det for meg før. Men jeg tror ikke i så stor grad i fra WSM på Malta i 99. Du var nemlig gravid og vi gledet oss noe enormt, kanskje den totale lykke. Jeg kjempet meg tappert mellom kvalifiseringen til tross for matforgiftning. Og du var der for meg mellom de tunge nettene på.....Do lol. Vi endte til slutt på 3 plass og vi var i ekstase J
Jeg tror mye av grunnen til at jeg gjorde det så bra var at det ikke betydde så mye nå som jeg hadde deg. Og det ser jeg veldig nå hvor lite slike ting som en idrettskariere egentlig betyr i det store og det hele.
Hadde jeg kunne bytte alt jeg noensinne har oppnådd i Strongman, og begge beina mot et siste øyeblikk med deg hadde jeg gjort det J Så lite viktig er sånt i det store og det hele. Uten kjærlighet til de rundt oss, og kjærligheten til Herren er vi ikke noe. Kjærligheten er det eneste som betyr noe.
Fortsett med å passe på oss jenta mi J

WE WILL LOVE YOU 4 EVER
Now it's almost 3 weeks since you left us, and we have to fight every day to stand tall. We miss you so much the both of us. But life must go on and we feel that you are with us. Yesterday we were back in Kristiansand for the first time without you, and it was a tuff thing to do. It brought back a lot of memories. And on our way back we both start crying and had to stop the car and hug. And we had a long talk about you that helped. It was good to see that our little angel could show his feeling. Sometimes it helps to cry, and we got the fighting spirit back. When we came back to Egil & Kikki we did so with a smile around our face. Now you can finally be with your mother and at peace.
Hey hey we are the monkeys !

NSM 2008 INFO:
Hei alle sammen :)
Få dager igjen til NSM nå.
Jeg fatter ikke helt dere som sier at dere mangler info. ang NSM 2008...????

Det er lagt ut plakat på iform, treningsforum, denne bloggen, lene's blog, Helene Rask blog,
Kikki skriver om alle utøvere på TF.
Jeg ser at dere også lurer på TV2's info rundt dette-TV2 har aldri laget noe pepp på NSM
før det foreligger noe taper som det lages en promo for sendingen av. Dette går som reklame
spot på TV2 ca 2-4 dager før selve sendingen. TV2 har sendt konkurransen ca 4-5 uker etter selve stevne
avviklingen. Noen eksakt dato foreligger ikke enda fra TV2 sin side.
Jeg avventer mer info ang. God Morgen Norge fredag 23.05. på TV2. Når jeg har dette legger jeg det selvsagt ut.
Det ser ut til at Svend, Odd og Jarek skal i studio fredag morgen før de kommer til Gol.
Selve stevne dagen startet kl.14.00. Portene åpnes ca kl.13.15.men dette avgjør Pers Hotel.
Jeg vet dere kan ringe og bestille billetter på Pers så dere er sikret å få sitteplass. Men fortvil ikke, vi
skal alltids få inn alle-selv om dere mulig må stå......
Det blir stand med PF produkter dere kan kjøpe der.

MILO TODAY :
PERS RESORT HOTEL- HOST OF NORWAY STRONGEST MAN 2008 !!!
Last weekend I went to Pers Resort Hotel to have a look at the arena.
I met with Åsmund and Anne-Lise.
Later this weeke info and booking code for hotel NSM weekend will be posted here.
Dinner for athletes and family +after party will be arranged and you have to sign up !!!
This will be the best NSM ever !!!
Stau put-info will come soon !!!!
Today I have got my own blogg as well !!!!
Now I have forced Svend to start to blogg himself.......
There's competition between everything in the Karlsen mansion.....
I think this will benefit you guys.........
Please have a look at my blogg :
Love Lene Alexandra
IT MADE ME THINK........
Today I started to think........I started to reflect over everyday things that I take for granted normally.....
Yeah -I started to think....
All day I have been asking Svend Alexander to help me lift everything weighing over 50 grams....lift and move
everything for me-since my right hand has got an irritation / infection. I'm totally out of function !!!
Everyday things gets so hard to do !!! And I'm NOT used to be "handicapped" at all !
But than I started to think about my situation and how small that is when all comes to all !!!
Everyting is always rated against something.....meaning-if you are really strong-you are just as strong
as the person you are rated against and that results, you are only as sick as a person that is totally healthy
or a person that is "facing the death ". You are only as kind compared to a guy that is nicer etc etc.
You see where I want with this ????
I think we all-and especially me from time to times, - have to start to focus on what we have,
instead of what we don't have !!!
Have to be more aware of what I am - instead of too much focusing on what, or how I should be like etc.etc.
When I say this, I don't mean that you should stop dreaming - but I mean when it's in a negative way !!!
There is a difference there-but often it's hard to see the difference clearly !!!
Svend is now "sick" compared to when he stood ontop of the podium in 2001-crowned as the new regian
World Strongest Man of this planet !!!!
But he's not sick compared to the poor children in Africa that has NO bright future,
or kidny transplant to look forward too what so ever !!!!!
I had a "big" probleme toady-but not worth mention regarding to a car accident today that so many had to face globally !!!
I guess I just wanted to remind myself that , all in all we are very blessed and lucky with the "situation" we are in end of the day !!!
Like I say-I started to think today.........and I wanted to shard that with you all - use it in a positive way !!!!
Love Lene Alexandra - that is quite happy after all !!!!! :) :) :)

I fasettter kan det ikke bli hull. De tar heller ikke misfarge mer !!!!!

ÅSSIDEN KIROPRAKTORSENTER: BENT JACOBSEN !!!
I dag var jeg hos min kiropraktor, Bent Jacobsen ved Åssiden kiropraktorsenter.
Både Svend og jeg bruker Bent "hyppig" i vår del av treningen.
Bent har lang "fartstid" som praktiserende kiropraktor. Han har reddet Svend fra mer et
dårlig stevne resultat. Å få komme hjem privat til kiropraktoren sin kl.23.00 på kvelden
kalles EXTRA service !!!.
Så mye og stor mengde trening som jeg kjører kroppen min gjennom nå-er det
alfa og omega med jevnlig "kontroll" av kroppens bevegelses apparat, nerver og muskler !!!
Ved feil i selve det fysiske bev. apparatet vil man trene og belaste kroppen feil, noe som igjen vil resultere
i skader over en kortere eller lengre periode. Husk at kroppen består av så mye mer enn "bare" muskler, sener og ledd. Nervebaner og nervesystemet vårt er et "skjult" nettverk som må fungere optimalt for et optimalt resultat gitt i resultater. Selv finner jeg anatomi og fysiologi, kost og ernæring utrolig lærerikt og intressant.
jeg vil anbefale dere som trener mye og målrettet til å lese anatomi, fysiologi som en del av den totale tiden dere legger i resultat orientert trening. En mer "komplett" forståelse for kroppens funksjoner vil kunne gi deg et størrre og bedre bilda av hvorfor kroppen reagerer slik den gjør !.
Noen som har hørt om Cortisol ????? Et høyt cortisol-spegl ????.......Hva vil dette gjøre med meg ????
Jeg vil anbefale på det sterkeste, og varmeste en tur til kiropraktoren der du bor !!!
Ikke alle er så heldige å kunne få benytte seg av Bent - men det finnes mange dyktige kiropraktorer i Norges land.
Kan f.eks anbefale Ola Ottem i Kristisansand. Han brukte vi når vi bodde der i 8 år. Meget dyktig mann med stor kunnskap ! Pappa kom seg til og med til Ola etter ca 30 års tid med vond rygg......er ikke farlig vet du !!
Åssiden kiropraktorsenter ligger ved Expert og Maxi for dere som er kjent i Drammens området. her finner du
kiropraktor, fysioterapi unner samme tak.
Adresse: Inge Rybergsgate 110, 3027 Drammen.
TLF: 32 20 62 62
Tusen takk Bent for den beste hjelpen !!!
Svend & Lene xx

Too much tanning is not good for your skin-but 2 x 15 minutes a week is just recommended here in Norway
with use of tanning glasses and normal sense and care !!!!
EASTER 2008: GOL-HEMSEDAL
This easter Svend Alexander got visit from his best friend, Brage and his dad, Truls

Svend took Brage, Truls and Alexander to Gol in Hallindag to visit one of Svend's best
friends, Anders Eidsgaard and his family.
Anders has a hotel located in the heart of Gol sentrum. If you ever need a great place to stop-and for
Eidsgaard Hotel and Anders !!!! You are will always feel welcome-I promise you !
Trine,his wife run the restaurant in the hotel. Theirt son, Syver is also one of Svend Alexander's best friends !!!
Anders booked they all up for snowmobile driving with Morten in Hemsdal. Morten runs rental for snowmobile driving in the wither time-and hotrse back riding trips in the summer time.

Sunday we met with our good friends, Kikki, Egil and Vilja at Peppes Aker Brygge.
It was kind of funny you know....next to our table we got visitors from USA !
I was sitting next to them, and I kind of understood that they were wondering;
"Is that really Svend Karlsen ????". Finally-when we started to talk about
World strongest man one of them kindly asked; Are you Svend Karlsen ???
I have seen you on TV many times back home !!!
The 3 men were, Kirk Parslay, Scott Shannon and Joe Bell.
They were all very polite and friendly !!! They are here in Norway with the
Deep Sub. Unit U.S. Navy.
Nice to meet you guys- you can report back home that The Viking has retired........
Is no longer compeating like it looks like on ESPN. In fact-he's eating more
pizzas these days than training....... :)
All our best to the 3 of you-it was a plesure meeting you all !

I will stil do Norway Strongest Man and Viking Power Challenge this year together with Svend.

do everything around strongman in Norway. I will still work for Super Series when ever they need me, and travel if I get the chance !. I have met so many good friends during my journey-and hope we still can keep in touch !.

But you know me so well by now-so don't think I will not speak up if something isn't right !!!
Again-Thank you all for your best wishes today !

We actually got to play with the big animals.....
Some day we will go back there........
I WON !!!!!!!!!
Judging by the size of this trophy you think Svend won The Wimbledon tournement......
This trophy you had to win 3 times to get........guess where it's now ????
Yes, right in Poland.........
Svend had it for 1 year.........
I had to take it on the plane coz Svend won 3 trophies in that contest.
First it was fun when people asked me what I had won ???? Many suggestions.......
and in the end I had to tell that my husband won it-NOT me....... :)
I really like the picture-Svend Alexander seems so small compared to it !
Today Svend Alexander abd Svend built a cawe in the basememt........
Everybody is there, Winnie the Pooh, Oskar etc, etc.......
It's so much snow outside now so it's better to do stuff indoor.....
Randy Strossen asked me to please write a report from WSM 2007.........
Will let you know when the issue is out for sale !

|BIG NEWS from the Karlsen Mansion by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. | ©2007 IronMind|
|Reporting BIG NEWS from the Karlsen Mansion, Lene Karlsen told IronMind, Guess who will be present in Mohegan Sun on 19th January ?|
Svend Karlsen (right) will be assisting Colin Bryce (left) with the TV at the WSMSS Mohegan Sun Grand Prix later this month. Randall J. Strossen photo.
Yes, we both will come over for the weekend: Svend will do TV together with Colin . . . I will just look good.
We are very exited about this - it's important that people can see that the Viking is still alive.
More than merely alive, the Viking is doing well, as he awaits his kidney transplant, and if you needed one more reason to make it to the Mohegan Sun later this month, now you have it.
Actually, this is two more reasons because from what we heard, there was no shortage of guys lined up at last year's World's Strongest Man contest, asking Lene Karlsen to autograph their MILOs.
The WSMSS Mohegan Sun Grand Prix is January 19, with a 7:00 pm start time, and tickets are available now.
