I am registered for the Berlin Marathon on 30th of September. I ran 402km/250mi in May (fun, but stupid) thanks to an insane Nike plus challenge. Due to another insane Nike plus challenge I ran 52km/32mi (split into two runs of 22km/13.5mi and 30km/18.5mi) within 24h, so I am pretty sure that I’m fit enough for 42km/26mi.
The question is more if I can stay away from injury. Soon after the crazy running May I didn’t and couldn’t run anymore for about six weeks. Started again on 07-21. Did 15 runs since then, (not too) slowly taking on longer distances and today managed 31.5km/19.5mi during a long run I had not even planed. Started out to do about 10km/6mi, but everything went well, so I ended up with three times that distance without proper preparation (food, nothing to drink etc.) Tired, but still walking.
So my hope is rising that this time I might actually make it. I was registered for the same marathon in 2005 and 2006, but was injured shortly before and therefore could not finish my training or compete. Still have to avoid further stupidity (which is always a challenge), but it’s only seven weeks, so it MIGHT ACTUALLY WORK! Unbelievable :-)
