My winter training

My last post here wasn’t too optimistic and not much has changed since……at least there is some consistency in something (my way of staying positive)!!!
For the change, compared to past few years, I am enjoying winter here in Riga, Latvia. Mostly by staying indoors or having my fun driving rear-wheel drive on snowy roads, but not because I would be afraid of cold or snow….after all I was born in part of country where winter used to stretch over 5 months a year. I haven’t been able to run much and skiing doesn’t seem to be suitable for my legs neither. Instead I have spent most of my days HERE:

by learning a whole new world of core, balance and strengths training. Iceberg theory has proved to be true once more – I thought I knew a lot, but life proved me the opposite. It’s been two months with targeted workouts every day and I have made some progress on my hamstring issue when my foot/heel injury doesn’t seem to respond so well even it was considered to be minor issue some time ago. The clock is ticking and I have to start running soon…by any means. I will try again tomorrow!

Meanwhile I have booked my first tickets to Spain on 17th of February where I will be training together with TuMe crew. Kinda late anyway, but I believe I can still do well at the end of May if I play my cards right!

Bright side number 1: with all the core training done I will be beach ready when summer comes!
Bright side number 2: I have learned a few tricks over time
