Musclepain vs one hour more training

Yesterdays musclepain didn’t stop us from Training today again. But my mind almost did but Tiago helped my motivation so after a fast powernap and coffee we went out back to the outside gym at Björkhagen, Stockholm. But I was sour today I can tell..! Haha!

One hour training in the sun was enough. Rest of the day was filled with working with my company Visio Fitness. Time to sleep. Goodnight.

Workout at a outside-gym in Sweden

Today me and Tiago went to try a outside-gym here in Stockholm at Björkhagen. “Street/monkey” training, “normal” gym-exercises and stretching was combined with a beautiful weather and snow in the Swedish woods and nature around us. It was fun! 😀

Monkey/street-training

Today it´s a windy but warm day. I´m waiting for Tiago to come home so we can eat and then go to the gym. I love the gym here in Santarém but the only thing I am actually missing is someplace where I can climb up and do my “monkey/street-training”. Hehe.

Since I was a kid I´ve always climbed up in trees and places wherever I could try to get up in. And to hang there, be upside down, go around, lift up, jump etc – that was my best playground and it still is! = But because of the gym dosn´t have that here I think it is good because of my backinjury is not 100% yet so I think it is good it´s not there to tempts me. =P

Crossfit or not?

A few years ago I saw crossfit and since then I´ve always wanted to try but I never did. Of seweral reasons. But the more I see it and hear about it my “reasons-of-not-to-go” starts to get further back in my head and my interest for it starts to get “first in line”…

So now, here I am, looking everywhere for crossfit-inspiration on internet, youtube, websites, photos and my own thougths that I think that my body actually could be really good at it at the same time I think that would motivate me to train more in a way that my body needs. As long as I really listen to it, do it with 100% techniques and so on, it will be great! Only thing is if my d*mn asthma will be a problem for me…?

One of the Crossfit-clubs in Sweden (gothenburg) that is one of the places where I get my inspiration from, is Crossfit Göta. And the guys who has it, specially Marcus, has inspired me more than he think since we worked at the same gym- Fysiken. There he workes as a Personal Trainer (and he is awesome!) and with crossfit etc. Hopefully I will get to go there for a class with them now when I will be in Sweden in february for a few days. =)

Photo: Me is easy trying some exercises with light weights to see how it felt.

Stretching-day

Image

My back if a bit sour today so I took it easy at todays training: only warm-up with the row-machine and stretching. Or, I did some training for my calfs and abdominis as well but only light training more for the bloodcirculation.

I´ve had some tough days the latest. Sleep and dream bad, short patience, dont eat so good etc… Not so fantastic no. But it is just to keep on going forward and do the best I can in all situations. The good thing with some “bad” days is that I at least is learning from it even if it is frustrated to feel “bad”. 😉

Time to plan the music for the tomorrows dance class!

Over one hour in the water

Image

Last training was in the pool. One hour and ten minutes in the water to be precise. Great training that my body soooo need…

And here in Portugal you need to have this nice swimming cap when you are in the pool. In sweden it is no need to have it so for me- this was the first time that I became this “good looking”! ;-P Haha!

Below: I was a bit sour in my back after the back & neck-workout I did the day before my pool training… But it feels good today. I LOVE to be in water- I feel safe, happy and in a good mood everytime I am in the water. ❤ After all this I took sauna 25 minutes. Lovely. ❤
