4 okt

Coen Koch from Urban Caveman training took me to the Westerpark and the Houthaven port to do tests that will give an idea of my current fitness: my balance, coordination, strength, endurance, stamina..everything was tested with what we found in the area, like benches, a tree, a log lying around. As I had not seen […]

Test #3: at the podologist

3 okt

I walk too much on the outer sides of my feet. Podologist Vroenhoeven could tell from some extra developed muscles in my feet that compensate for this, and he made a print of my feet that confirmed it. He thinks that in time I might start feeling that higher in my body: in my hips, […]
