My Mountain Marathon Training Online Program – Week 9

I’m missing my trails in Sweden, but the training must go on as good as possible.

It’s been way too much street-running for me the past week and my scapula/shoulder problems are getting worse.

The solution to that is to a lot more of the functional training that I always have incorporated in my training more or less…

If you haven’t read part 1, I recommend starting with that one…
