Training W 42 – Getting back to it slowly

Finally the flu seems to be subsiding and I have been slowly getting back to running. I still have not dared to do any HIIT training, but normal run 5,5 kilometers felt pretty OK. Unfortunately after that my nose was blocked again so put running to halt again for a few days, not that I would have had time either.

Gospel Helsinki (my current choir) had two concerts short ones at this new shopping Mall of Tripla opening which is apparently the biggest shopping mall in Scandinavia!Check video/post; FB post and FB video

So two evenings went there, and I could not even sing properly on Thursday so I was pretty down again thinking that I won’t be able to go to our planned hike on Saturday to Repovesi National park with my husband. Again decided to take it hour at a time and decide when it would be time to go.

I felt ok in the evening so we decided to drive there. It is one of the best high places in Southern Finland they say so I have been wanting to go there for a while. After the hike at home in the evening I suddenly got this feeling that hey I’m fine. The bug is gone and I feel good, finally! So it took three weeks to pass this virus or whatever it was.

Looking forward to next week, finally normal execise routines and writing a blog post of the visit to national park! Life is winning ❀

Total

  • 1 run 5,5 kilometers
  • 1 walk 3,6 kilometers
  • Indoor climbing once
  • 1 hike 17 kilometers

Target

  • 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.
