We want you to be healthy and fit for the 2019 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON

We want you to start and finish the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON in a healthy condition. Therefore we ask you to take part in a pre-participating health check carried out by an experienced sports physician (sports doctor). Diseases and health risks due to physical activity and sports could be detected by such a screening test. The health check should include a stress ECG (electro cardiogram) and an orthopedic and internal examination. If you are over 40 such a check should be carried out once a year. Until the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON Marathon you still have the chance to implement the pre-participation check.

Blood check: Do you have iron or electrolyte deficiencies?

Deficiencies of iron and electrolytes could decrease your performance and could make your preparation difficult. At this time there is a good opportunity to check your iron and electrolyte status. The analysis of the iron stores should include a blood count and the analysis of ferritin. Important electrolytes are Potassium and Magnesium. If a deficiency is diagnosed, there is enough time to start a substitution.

Fluid check: How much should you drink?

Dehydration can decrease your performance in a marathon. In rare cases too much drinking can even cause health problems. Therefor it is important to know your individual fluid loss. An easy possibility to estimate the fluid loss is the measurement of your body weight before and after training without clothes and in a toweled status. By the difference of the body weight one can estimate the amount of fluid loss, which could be calculated for one hour running. Drinking during running should be practiced. Therefore plan and practice fluid uptake during your training sessions.

Take a break when ill, injured or exhausted

The critical preparation stage for the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is about to begin. Due to the increasing training amount often infections, injuries and states of exhaustions occur. To not put your health at risk, we recommend you to have the courage for a break until illness and injuries are cured. Also when you suffer from exhaustion take a few days off to continue your training in a recovered status. If you have ongoing health problems contact your sports physician (sports doctor).
