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’s a week, warm up HIIT running/Stair climbing/Cross trainer – Target: To increase muscle strength and toning. Emphasis on upper body and core.
- One HIIT run a week. Either on treadmill or lunch break run depending on weather. Target: To increase oxygen intake.
- One gym class training a week, this would be whatever fits my schedule. Could be yoga, strength, core or dance. Target: Just to get active and have variety on the plan plus I pay for it anyway! OR one wall climbing training Target: To increase upper body muscles and activate muscles needed for climbing in a bit more steep conditions.
- One shorter “normal” run a week. This can be trail or basic running outside. Target: Increase general endurance and stamina.
- Optional! One low HR long run a week minimum 10 kilometers. Target: Increase general endurance and stamina. Usually I do this in a National park so it would be a trail run.
