Long-distance runner from Skåne, Sweden says hi!


Recommended Posts

So, I'm back here with an account - have visited the forums from time to time, but havn't registrered until now.

Had an accont here years ago - back then, I was obese (145kg/176cm) and struggled to lose the excessive weight and become more fit. Back then, I did not exercise on regular basis nor took care of my health as I should. Now, I weigh in at 78-80kg - exercises everyday (active rest included), more aware what I eat etc (however, that won't stop me from overconsuming crappy, sugary foods).


My training primarily focus on long-distance running (roads to rough terrain) and cycling. Couple of weeks ago, I started a strength program to perform better on my running and in same time become stronger (and look well-trained) - however, I follow my routines strict - pushing the limits.


Every morning and evening, I do perform yoga/strength routines (body weigth exercises). I have also a separate program for my running - 3-4 times a week, when the weather allows it, I tend to swap a running session for HIC-pass at gym (3-4x20min with bodyweight exercises in between) or swimming when it's too cold/snowy outdoors.
