Jan Fitschen: I’m not finished yet

The last couple of months it was getting quiet around Jan Fitschen. Fitschen was mostly seen on PR instead of running events. Now the 32-year old European 10.000m Champion announced that he is not finished yet and that he has a plan for the upcoming weeks.

After getting married last weekend, Fitschen will pace his cousin in the 10K-race of the Munich Marathon. Following this event he will enjoy his honeymoon and then he wants to start serious training again.

Jan Fitschen was continuously disturbed by plantar tendon problems over the course of the last months but progress was also made since this summer. He did a lot of physiotherapy that included stabilisation and foot exercises. Now he is already able to do some jumps and hopefully the suffering will come to an end.

If the German can defend his European title in next years European Championships in Barcelona is still uncertain. Too often the injury problems crossed his plans, but he optimistically states that his athletic career is still ranked number 1 in his life. Nevertheless he will start some distance studies in the future.
