Do you think about your training routine?


In order to keep inner harmony we need to balance our lives. I been training much harder than I use to do, this spring and summer. In the same time I had lots of work to do.  Without knowing I felt weaker.

Sometime when we are in the middle of a situation or a period of time and we tend to not  really see what is happening to us. We keep on going and so did I without really seeing that the body needed some rest.

As much as training is healthy, rest has also an important impact on the body. Than as you can see under I was working with reporting about the Americas Cup and I wasn’t going down to do any training at the fitness centre. I didn’t have any rest from physical activity however, it was breaking the routine was the thing that got my motivation back. So yesterday when I was back at the gym again I did my cross hill and I ran. I was expecting myself to be in less good condition  because of one week break but actually I surprised myself and did better. I than realised that my better result consisted of a higher motivation and that the routine caused me some kind of stress that I could break. Beeing away a week wasn’t so bad as I expected and resting was healthy for my body I got some good new energy and I managed to increase my running result two days in a row.

The Conclusion


My time in Teneriffa was great. I met a group of people wit the same need- to improve their health condition. I tasted health and fresh food, served with lots of choices, three times a day.

With all the hours of training I ate twice as much as normal and I gain one kilo in total.


I got routine to go to the fitness centre, almost every day. I had physiotherapy in the warm swimming pool. I was not so very happy of it at first, going into the water drys out my skin very hard, however the warm swimming pool was good to joint and muscles and in a hard  training schedule, at the end of the three weeks I felt it really necessary to go and move in warm water. Then I instantly felt the pain to go away. But also afterwards, in Sweden, I felt a much better health condition from it.


After three weeks the morning routine of gymnastic had become harder and harder. I had to force myself really really hard make the exercises, to think about the positions and try to hold out the entire time that we were told to.  Everyday, even though for just half an hour was enough for us to become very tired.  The body suffered hard and I was really tired. The three weeks improved my training routines, and I pushed myself hard.  I am pleased with the training and the food and what it actually did in health matter to my body. I hope this will inspire you to take a training travel. I really did enjoy it and I hope you will do to.
