I started my preparations already. I run 3 times a week and do intervals twice a week. Rest day is every Sunday and Tuesday. For the next two months I decided to run from 5 to 8 km with 2 kg weights or 10 km without. 3 months before the marathon kicks off, I will run 15 km and full 21 km for 4 last weeks.

Additionally, I eat clean and drink a lot of water!

Wish me best of luck!
