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!
- One gym training a week – Target: To increase muscle strength and toning. Easy weights and more repetition.
- One HIIT run a week. Target: To increase oxygen intake. We got a nice hill just next to our house so up you go full sprint.
- 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.
- One shorter “normal” run a week. This can be trail or basic running. Target: Increase general endurance and stamina.
