Sport was not really my favourite hobby until my 5th son got cancer and running kept me going, literally and figuratively. From 0 to 5km and finally to full marathons (secretly my favourite distance). With perseverance, a good schedule and Etixx this is definitely possible! With support from Etixx, I can achieve these goals and my body gets the right nutrition at the right time.


My discipline

Running -> AV de Liemers


Number of hours’ training per week

4 - 6 hours

 

"Work hard,
everthing is possible."

My favourite Etixx products

  • I use Magnesium Instant Stick every day.
  • Multimax tablets autumn/winter and when training increases
  • Arginine 1000, 1.5 - 2 months before the marathon, to reduce tiredness after strenuous training sessions.
  • During long endurance runs, my favourite, Sport Gummies, great during long training sessions!
  • Carbo-Gy 3 hours before long endurance runs
  • Sport Hydro Tab, in the water bottle during training sessions in warm weather
  • Isotonic (in 500 ml water) 10 min before a long endurance run
  • Recovery Shake Chocolate (with unsweetened almond milk) after a long endurance run or interval training

  • 5km: 22:44
  • 10km: 46:35
  • 15km: 1:12:48

Running, cycling, strength and swimming

Sport has been a key part of my life since I was a child. I spent years searching for the sport that would give me the most satisfaction. From dance, to judo, even to gymnastics and fitness. But nothing could match the feeling that running still gives me after all these years, time after time. I have found my release, my passion. A way to forget everything for a while and to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought I could.
