Both are fine, vscid. There's quite a bit of freedom when it comes to adverb placement. Number 1 represents the normal neutral placement.

So adverb placement even before the main verb is fine?
I thought that adverb has to be placed between the main verb (will) and the auxillary verb (be).

We could even use a sentence initial positioning with S-V inversion.

1] Never will I be able to run again.
