Thanks for asking. Quite a lot actually.
Thursday was PT time. The workout was tough, fun and different from the other things I’ve done with my PT before. Usually while at gym doing something like legs, I’ll burn up about 400kcal. Little more or little less. This time, it was 700kcal. Intense, and I just might do that functional workout again, it was fun!
Friday was kind of supposed to be rest day, but I got talked into going bouldering. It wasn’t too hard:
“We thought about going to the walls on Friday before sauna and eating. Wanna come?” “Let me think about it. Sure!”
The people at the Tampereen kiipeilykeskus are really nice. I was looking at some routes and couple of more experienced climbers came over to ask if that was my first time there and if there were anything I wanted to know. They gave me some tips and when I was figuring out how to do one route, the helped and gave instructions. That was really nice! I got some good info and I’m already thinking about getting my own climbing shoes…
And what about today?
Running. Although it was snowing and the roads had couple of centimeters of snow on, and it was snowing the whole time, it was pretty enjoyable I have to admit. I kept a slow pace as you can see. It will be interesting to see what will my time be when I run the same route in the spring when there’s no snow…
Thumbs up from a (little deranged) runner from up North!
Winter running is more about what you wear than how fast you can run. Under armour, running shirt, wind and water proofed jacket, gloves, windbreaker pants, studs on the sneakers, woolen socks and a freebie buff headwear courtesy of my gym and you can think about leaving the house. It’s not fun to get to cold and it’s not fun to get too hot since there isn’t anything you can take off in the middle of running.
10,6km today. 22km on September 15th. I’m sure I can do it.
