Hope you all had a good Christmas.
I went for my first run in a month yesterday, and it felt good. I've found some new motivation, and am determined to try a second10k later this year.
My problem is that I travel a lot with work. the places I go to are not places where is it possible/advisable for a woman to run on the streets. There are few gyms, and curfews often make it difficult to get to them after the end of the working day.I found a treadmill in the last place I stayed, ans was very excited until it tried to throw me off within a minute of starting.
I'm rarely away for more than 2 weeks, so have so far focused on stretching or used a weights band when I'm away, and tried to catch up when I return. However, I'd really like to be able to run faster.
Does anyone have any suggestions of exercises or routines I could carry out in a small room with limited equipment which would help with aerobic fitness?
I'm sure I have a skipping rope around somewhere, so this might work well. Thanks for the idea.
Sometimes I don't have space to swing a rope though, or only get the time once others are in bed, so jumping around might make me unpopular.
I'd welcome further suggestions too.
Do the places you stay have stairs? If it is feasible I would suggest using them.
Skipping was my other suggestion but that has already been covered.
Sometimes there are stairs - there were in the last place.
would you suggest running up and down them, or stepping up and down the same one? Or something else?
Thanks for the ideas.
I've done the dips before, but not the standing up or standing down, that sounds useful.
Young pup, this circuit sounds good. I have done circuits with resistance work, but not thought of adding in running on the spot, or of doing them without a break to make it more aerobic.
