Sibusiso Nzima on his upcoming Amsterdam Marathon.
My preparations for the Amsterdam marathon, taking place on 19 October took almost 4 months. I did a basic training program for 2 months and was focusing on my endurance. The 8 weeks there after I was doing a lot of tempo runs as well.
Everything went well during my preparations and I’m very happy because I ran injury free during all my preparations. I also got some good results on my training races during this period.
I'm feeling ready for my marathon and my aim is to improve my previous PB of 2:13:42 that I ran in Hamburg Marathon last year. I'm positive that I can do better than that in Amsterdam this coming weekend and there's lot to come in future.
Thanks to 32gi, Garmin, Nike, Futurelife, Nedbank,Iwyze and Spidertech for being with us all the way. Hoping for the best in the Amsterdam Marathon and a time of 2:10 is possible for me.
