- One of the more short stages.. But a challenge in its own right :-)
The first 20km was uphillwithout stop. Not a huge altitude; ca. 800m. alt. up, but after two hours 'up-running' pushing 35kg along w. the running I had an urge for an early weekend and found a perfect spot to put the tent - wich was worth all the effort :-)
A spot that easily could compete w. the best 5star hotels visited so far..
Todays calender tip:
A light, balanced, training of the main musclegroups of the body can help in preventing injury - The running motion involves far more than just the leg muscles and light training a few times a week of arm, neck, shoulder, back/spine and stomack musles can also give you the toolsfor a more efficient running tecknique by enhancing its overall strength and balance along w. taking stress off the legmuscles.
Btw.: reg. the strength & mobility exercise of foot muscles in 1.dec. tip (my friend Tony Mangan in Ireland asks :-) .. The main exercises is repetedly to 1) curl the foot to'make a fist' then 2) bend the toes upward. Using the foots muscles and keeping the positions for just 2-5sec. After that to rotate the foot into each corner position: up, left, down, right, up.. making a box shape'.
It takes max. 5min. daily and can make a big difference in injury prevention :-)
