T U E S D A Y O N C A M P ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ Tuesdayโ€™s are always an intense day for us but at an altitude camp, even more so. We start the day driving an hour to the track where we have our hardest session of the week. We then usually shop for the week and bring all our supplies back up the mountain. After that I have one of my main lifting days. Hereโ€™s a sneak peak. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

H I L L S & H I L L S ๐Ÿ’ฐ One of the hardest sessions of the week falls on our Saturday morning. Very unfortunate for Friday nights but it makes Saturday nights that bit more relaxing. Today, as always, 800m hills X 6. All up about 18km of running this morning.

S T U C K W A T C H I N G S O C C E R On the km reps today I took a roll on my ankle. The trails here are rough but thatโ€™s why we get so strong and fit on these camps. Unfortunately I have to sit and ice but luckily there is always something to watch at the moment! โšฝ๏ธโšฝ๏ธโšฝ๏ธโšฝ๏ธ

M U S C L E M E M O R Y I havenโ€™t got many steeple races scheduled this season as my main focus (like I promised myself in January) is to stay healthy, strong and get the work in rather then spend months rehabbing injuries. Even though I wonโ€™t be doing a whole lot of steepling, doesnโ€™t mean I stop the hurdle work. Hurdle drills once a week to keep the muscle memory sharp! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

T H E S T A N D A R D R O U T I N E ๐Ÿšง This here is my standard hurdle drills routine. It is mainly just to develop and maintain glute strength and hip stability so I try do it 2 times a week. Ryan joins me because itโ€™s beneficial for all events, not just the steeplechase. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ
