My Mountain Marathon Training Online Program – Week 15

This week has been mostly about rest and recovery from “Kia Fjällmaraton”. Just taking it easy doing some peaceful mountaineering in Åre, Sweden.

I’ve just had three fantastic weeks in Åre training, racing and mountaineering together with my family enjoying the beautiful mountain environment.

Even though I’ve always had some problems with my recovery time from hard races, I wanted to enjoy this last week as much as possible. So, I decided to do some nice mountaineering.

Last year it took me one month to recover from “Kia Fjällmaraton”, and I really hope that I have shortened my recovery-time since then (as I’m better prepared and trained this year).

My next challenge is “Buff – Bydalens Fjällmaraton” 50km, 2900 D+ in the 24 of August, and I really need to be 100% recovered till then.

So, a recovery time of one month as last year is not really an option. ?

Functional training with PT

Focus on shoulder mobility/strength, scapula mobility/strength as these are problem areas of mine. Also working on the combination body/legs/feet doing squats up on toes.

By the way. My PT Ulrika says that my feet have been a lot stronger after 3 weeks of mountain training.

Check out some of the exercises shown by my local personal trainer Ulrika Andersson. Focus on feet mobility/strength and shoulders/arms mobility.

Summary of the week

A great week that was mostly about rest and recovery. Only one-hour effective training plus some nice mountaineering.

I’m not 100 % recovered yet from “Kia Fjällmaraton” but I hope that I will recover just in time tilI my next and also greatest challenge so far, “Buff – Bydalens Fjällmaraton” 50km, 2900 D+ in the 24 of August.

Check out week 16!

Happy SkyRunning!
