Berlin Marathon Training: Week 9

During week 8, I had fevers. In week 9, it wasn’t much better. I felt powerless, I had cramps and again, fever. Two positive things of the week: rest week, which meant that I didn’t miss too much training, and I took three days off from work to rest. I didn’t do much during the first three days, and then on the weekend, I cheered for my favorite ITU pros at the Hamburg Triathlon. I hope to sit down and write a post about this, too, but I seem to be a bit lazy when it comes to writing these days.

Ups of the week:

  • I would have never expect to say that, but the rest I got was definitely the up of the week. On Sunday, I felt relaxed and ready for a hard training week.

Downs of the week:

  • Well, just one our of running, obviously don’t need to say more.

To sum up my feelings: Mixed, again. On Sunday, I was disappointed about the past week, but I felt ready and motivated to start in a new week with lots of training.

10 weeks until Berlin…

(I know, last week I posted 12 weeks. I think I made a mistake somewhere, so only 10 weeks left!)
