My favorite workout is definitely a quick interval workout, often followed by a bit of stretching and/or flexibility training. This can be done both indoors and outdoors and is super effective compared to long workouts which take a lot of time from my already hectic everyday.
NATURE!! I love to go on runs outside in the beautiful nature we have here in Norway, and who said that the forest doesn’t hold places to use for flexibility training?
- When it’s cold outside: Wool is the best! I always start with wool closest to my body from head to toes. It keeps me warm and provides optimal ventilation, especially when my body temperature is much higher than that of the air outside. I also wear a midlayer, and if it is reallllyyy cold maybe a medium-thin running jacket on top (best when waterproof).
- When it’s warm outside: Light and airy clothes that breathe well. Often loose shorts and a sports bra when it’s really warm!
The Compete tech sweater or a T-shirt with Oxygen shorts. Let me just say WOW.
No week is the same but the week planning below would be typical. Some weeks I do more strength training and others I do more running and/or biking. The most important for me is to listen to my body. Varied training methods are key!
Monday: Easy long distance running Tuesday: Fast interval workout and flexibility training Wednesday: Restttt day Thursday: Upper body strength training Friday: Leg day Saturday: Race pace long distance running Sunday: Hike on the mountain or a bike ride
