Last week was definitely the low point of my training so far. My leg was really hurting and I was not able to walk properly for a few days. It was clear that no training for at least a few days and gym was out of the question for the whole week.
Bruise was massive and there was bad hemorrhage under the point where the stump hit so I had all the colors of the rainbow on my leg. I was worried if the leg will heal by the time of the Lake District 3 peak challenge and if the hard bit in the middle will stay there forever.
Thought I would put as feature image (the image at the top) a view from atop a hill to where I did the orienteering as the views were great!
The total of the week was sad, but expected. A whopping 6 kilometers of running nothing else. Hoping that next week will be better. Especially since we need to climb three peaks in UK!
- Two gym training sessions a week, warm up walking to the gym/rowing machine – Target: To increase muscle strength and toning. Emphasis on butt, back of the legs and core to increase stability of hips and legs to support running.
- Two shorter runs a week. This can be trail or basic running outside. MAX 4 kilometers. I may increase the amount if my leg does not start hurting in a few week… Let’s see. Target: Just to be able to run in the first place!
- Optional! One exercise training a week, this would be whatever fits my schedule. Could be yoga, strength, core, dance or indoor wall climbing/ bouldering . Target: Just to get active and have variety on the plan.
- Compulsory! Stretching and foam rolling after each training Target: To reduce the risk of getting an IT band inflammation in the future
