The last week before I face my big challenge is nearly over.
Over the last few days I went to the gym and attended the classes TRX and Park Fitness which was focused on total body workout and running in the park. I hardly could walk for a few days from the intense leg exercises.
I like to have a versatile and ineresting trainings week. Honestly, just running would be too boring for me.
Have a look how I spice up my trainings weeks during the Jungle Marathon training…
TRX: Total body workout is possible with the straps.
Climbing: 2x week is a total body workout and so much fun.
Pole dance: 1x a week is a total body workout. Focus is on strengthening not dancing.
I felt a huge improvement of my back muscles.
Soft foam roller: I rolled regularly after training to stretch and massage the muscle.
This is so good for you! Sometimes when I had pain around my knee I was rolling my legs.
It helped very quickly and I realized that it was the muscle and not really the knee.
Please try this! It might hurt in the beginning but only because your muscles are tense.
After a few times it is much better und you will enjoy it.
