Watched this, wasn't quite the thrill of Boston, but, man, the BBC coverage was wank. They just did not show enough of the races or, really, the right parts. Made it quite hard to follow what was really happening. Chuffed for Kipchoge, though, and very impressed by Farah.

ya def not enough racing. i dont get it. Boston coverage was so much better.

even then, they still need to show more racing. split screen women/men or something, non stop.

yeah, split screen is such an easy solution, can't fathom why they don't use it more! they did it for like 30 seconds in the whole thing to show some Farah stuff

Watching NBC SN. Announcer keeps saying "the pace is too fast", "oh man this is too fast", "they are all going to pay" etc etc. I'm starting to hate watching Marathon coverage.

he was right, though
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

man what happened to mo farah. I didn't realize that they had bottles for certain people, I always thought you could get any bottle and because mo got the wrong bottle that really cost him.

I watched the highlights, the marathon was filled with talent, bekele, kipchoge, mo and others.

kipchoge definitely the guy who rules track and road races.

he was right, though

not necessarily. Kipchoge & kitata handled it pretty well. Mo also PR'd by nearly 2 minutes. Obviously not WR/CR weather conditions but, it's debatable whether it was too fast or not. Most everyone pays by the end of a marathon, negative splits or not. And it got considerably hotter as the marathon went on -> why not "use up" the good weather while you have it?

so dno. I don't like the idea of constantly telling people to slow down: it's a race. It's up to the others in the pack to decide whether to hang back, or hang with. IMHO, very annoying to listen to.



man what happened to mo farah. I didn't realize that they had bottles for certain people, I always thought you could get any bottle and because mo got the wrong bottle that really cost him.

kipchoge definitely the guy who rules track and road races.

ya they have their own bottles. some need specific ratios of nutrients in order not to cramp/exacerbate stomach issues etc. nowadays, it's usually bad news missing a bottle.

Kipchoge gave the remainder of his to another runner, mid race. The runner surged up to the front and asked Kipchoge for it, so he gave it to him. Was pretty cool to see.

Also, Kipchoge rules the marathon, not the track :D Mo/Bekele rule the track. Kipchoge is the marathon god. However, Kipchoge did beat Mo in a 2 mile race once... Kipchoge likes to beat Mo. Pretty sure he was happy as fu*k to see Mo wanting to run London. Made him excited, the idea of crushing him once again. hah. Kipchoge is ruthless.

Kipchoge still took part in two of the greatest 5000m races ever in the 2003 World Championships and 2004 Olympics. At the first one he beat El Guerrouj by 0.04s and Bekele by ~.3s, and in the second he came third behind those same two guys by less than a second.

I think Bekele, El Guerrouj and Kipchoge all on the same podium is probably the most stacked 1-2-3 podium of all time?

Somewhat surprising, on reflection, that Bekele won neither of those races, despite setting his 5k world record a couple months before the 2004 olympics.
