Fitness Friday

Following on from the news that Matthias is going to be training for the Marathon during the winter is seems like a good idea to start off Fitness Friday with a few tips on how to train over the winter.

Training indoor vs. Training outdoor.

It is a best to mix it up.  We all know how cold Vienna can get so, sometimes it is going to be best to train indoors.  Make sure you treat it with as much seriousness as you would outdoors and set the treadmill on a slight incline to simulate a more realistic environment.

Make sure you train with the right gear there are many blogs about this and make sure you heed the tips about not running at all when it is icy.

Also remember stretching is as important as wearing the right gear.
