Last year I bagged myself a greatly coveted Berlin Marathon ballot place. I paid my 100 euros and was exciting to get my second marathon major race under my belt. Unfortunately, I couldn’t run due to injury and to be honest I was pretty bummed about it. The Berlin marathon is an iconic race! So, I was really excited when adidas miCoach got in touch and asked if I’d like to run the Berlin marathon this year with them!
I’d love to say that I’ll be heading for a PB but, realistically, I know I’m not in shape to get a PB. After my knee injury at London marathon it’s been a slow return to full fitness and I’d say that I’m not quite there yet. I am really excited to be attempting the distance again though and am hoping I can put in a better performance than the PW I obtained in London!
I’m going to be using my adidas FitSmart watch with miCoach to train for the race. I’ve set up a training plan that involves running workouts and base fitness workouts, as I know from past experience that, for me, full body strength and flexibility training is key to staying injury free.
I will, obviously, be keeping you all up to date on my training and my progress on the big day! So grateful to adidas miCoach for the opportunity to join them at the amazing race.
