Introduce us to a day in your life, as an athlete and a woman full of aspirations.
I usually get up at 8am and I have breakfast. At 9 am I go to the Rio Maior Sports Centre to do my morning training, which is always the most intense and the longest of the day.
I have lunch at 1pm, then I have rest in the early afternoon. When I need to go to the pysyiotherapist I go at 4pm and then I return to training at 5.30pm. This training is a recovery session, shorter and less intense.
I have massages twice a week after the afternoon training.
I have dinner at 8pm at the Rio Maior Sports Centre and go home around 9pm.
This is my daily life.
Share the diet that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit? 5 foods you absolutely love. On a special occasion, you would like to cook one thing.
My mother is a great cook and has always been used to Mediterranean food with lots of vegetables and fruit, so healthy eating has been a concern since my childhood.
I usually eat my meals at the Rio Maior Internship Center, where food and meals are designed and prepared with the support of nutritionists for athletes, so I don’t have to worry.
I really like cod gomes sá, duck rice and my mother’s orange pie, strawberries and nuts.
Having to train constantly in extreme climate conditions, how do you take care of your skin and hair? 5 night time skincare rituals.
Regarding the skin, before starting the training I always put sunscreen factor 50 anti-stains. Before going to bed I clean the skin, apply a serum, eye contour cream and anti-wrinkle night cream.
The hair is more complicated, I try to take it on alternate days, but as I sweat a lot I need to wash more often and some moments it gets a little drier. I use a repairing shampoo and a mask to make the hair smoother.
