6daystorotterdam6 days to go. 9 kilos down since August last year. After today’s training session the scales only showed 72.1kg anymore. The Saltin diet shows it’s effect. Lost about 1.5 kilos in 3 days. I expect to go down another 0.5 to 1kg, but that’ll be it for Rotterdam. For Berlin in the fall, we might even hit the 70kg mark.

Training was quite hard today, the last tough session before the race, two runs at marathon speed, the first 4km, the second 3 km. Finished with a 3:39min/km which is 6 seconds below race pace. The carb storages should be really empty by now. Tomorrow is one more day of this hell (= no carb diet), then it’s done. From Wednesday onwards we switch to a high carb diet, bread and pasta here we come!!!

today’s training: warm up, two tempo runs 4km in 3:44min/km and 3km in 3:42min/km, cool down, 16.8km in total
