Pulppuilevan innokas, iloinen, päättäväinen ja supertehokas.


People often ask me about my secret training data. Actually, it’s not such a big secret what I do but more or less basic stuff. The only problem is that my files are usually quite cryptic and no-one can really interpret the without my help. This time I’ve been forced to plan my trainings a little bit better and more precisely because I’m not yet allowing myself to run normally.

Usually the basic stuff from the home door is quite easy to plan but when you have to take all the opening hours and all the other restrictions in training into account, you must do some planning. And I have to say this week was the best this fall even though I had plenty of other stuff from concerts to “sister aid”.

So, the main thing is for me at the moment to build the base and body;) In addition, I make all the little things my physiotherapist told me to do. I’m trying to leave the achilles-dangerous things away but have to admit that especially running in the water is like poison to my soul…Luckyly, the winter came and this week I can ski, too
