At the Keller Sports Store in Munich on Saturday 10th December, you got the chance to do a test run with the Nike Shield running shoes. Together with Olympic athlete Christina Hering and the Isar Run by Keller Sports, we started the event at midday at our store on Auenstraße 120.
To begin with, the Nike athlete, who recently qualified for the Rio Olympics, gave us an insight into the life of a professional runner. She explained her training routine and revealed her secret on how to remain constantly motivated and stimulated. Our participants were also given the opportunity to ask questions and identify more closely with Christina.
After all questions were answered, the training finally began. The eager participants split into two groups and began warming up. The group then moved out into the wonderful sunshine to run along the beautiful Isar and to a big meadow next to the river. Once there, Christina led a mobility training session designed for athletes at all levels. Stability and coordination exercises were also on the programme. Short sprints, demonstrated by the professional runner, were the highlight of the workout and they raised heart rates all round.
After completing this tiring but fun training session, the Keller Sports Store offered free snacks and drinks to top up the participants’ energy reserves. To round it off, Christina took some Polaroid pictures with the runners and gave out autographs as a memory of the day.
We would like to thank Christina Hering and Nike for this great running workout, as well as our running group, the Isar Run, and all participants of the Nike Shield test event.
