The finish line!
The last kilometer felt like there was no end to it, bwoah. That feeling passing the finish line though.. Indescribable. Getting into the Olympic Stadion was surreal, it was such a rush, there were so many people and there was so much noise, I pushed myself and I even got a little sprint out. After that things became a bit blurry haha, so many girls, but with this insanely energetic atmosphere, it was almost overwhelming. I made it within the hour – untrained and with injury. I’m so damn proud! PR’s were smashed, sweat dripping of everybody’s faces. We did it!
After the race I (finally) saw a physiotherapist who advised me on my injury. Turns out the pain in my right knee is caused due to severe overexertion and it is not solved by just resting, but needs special massaging. Right now I’m kind of angry at myself because I’ll go on holiday in a week and then I will move to Berlin for a month. So ladies please don’t be stubborn when you have an injury but go see a physiotherapist right away!
So what’s next? I will try to visit a physiotherapist so I can be prepared better for the Berlin race, but this will be a bit tricky. Extremely excited for the Nike Women’s 10km Berlin however! I will keep you posted 🙂
For those who ran the race – awesome job! Share your experience in the comments!
