I'm 50's 5'11" 180 lbs, regular to gym, 4 times / wk for 45 to 60mins, have routine that focuses on major muscle groups, inc cardio for 50% of time.
This time of year (off season) I try get a kite trip in, going to Costa Rica in a couple of weeks, hope for Mexico in March then my local season begins. In these trips, if wind complies, I get a 90 min session in morn (w a 10 min break) then 2 sessions in aft to finish day.
the problem is that by second day, for the 2nd session of day, my legs are fatigued, and I'm feeling my abs.
I need to get in shape, and how to recover once there?! Ideas please.
What I'm doing this month, since my trip is first 2 weeks in Jan, and CR wind does not let up: I've increased my days at gym to 6 days, and the next 2 weeks, will double my elliptical and stair master time to 40mins as opposed to 20, My workouts focus on reps w weights, more endurance than body building.
However, where in need the most input is what to do once there to recover from sessions,?!
I can do some light stretch and Beginner Yoga in morn, any other ideas? Take a nap? I'm not a runner, so can't incorporate that ...
Anyways, what do you guys do to survive when you want to maximize your kite time but the body is sluggish?
Thanks for input, Max
