got a german language stream on in the background while i do some work. it's amazing to watch the start of a race that big, thousands and thousands of people squeezing together toward the start line and then breaking into a run in a continuous wave.

ya. only been to two of those. once started in the middle, was hectic. other was in the front, not hectic.

fun being around that many runners tho, tons of energy.

leaders hit the first km in 2:43. i did 3:41 as one of two tempo kms yesterday.  :derp: :uhcomeon: :goodjobbro: :almostascoolasnyancat:

hah ya man it's so insane.. and my 1km PR is 2:52... and i was pushing as hard as possible.

they are incredible.

2:01:39 for KIPCHOGE. massive WR (-1:18).

http://results.scc-events.com/2018/?pid=leaderboard

very impressive: For the top 10 men/women, 3 Japanese runners in each group. JPN doesn't mess around!

Also: No one from the US in the top 10 for either gender. That shouldn't happen tbh, but it makes sense given the depth of the US in marathoning.

mindblown how fast Hassan ran a half marathon.. she's basically in peak mile shape, almost peak 5k shape.. and she drops a 1:05:15. Not too far off the women's WR.. WTF?

her male (project oregon) teammate (Kejelcha) also ran an insane half time, 59:17.. and he's in peak 3k/5k shape.

pretty crazy.

I didn't even know those two ran halfs...

Hassan got the women's EU record.

they have a great site! seems like a great half.

Here is when I realized I ran an European record on the half marathon! 😁
And on 15k and 20k. And a Dutch record on 10k. And I also improved my PB with 12 minutes 🤣

truly crazy.

oregon project, massive PR...drugs. gotta at least suspect given how much smoke there is.
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

i dno.. has there been recent smoke though? alot of the smoke is pretty old AFAIK.

i mean these two athletes are world class. hassan is a 4:15 miler, 14:23 5k etc - both a month or so ago.. kejelcha is ridiculous too (12:5X 5k? last month and sub8 2 mile a few months ago). just didn't know they had half marathon endurance.

both times are astonishing to me though.. half marathon specialist times. but then I guess Mo can go from 5k/10k shape and drop 59:23 so, no idea. maybe half marathon specialist is sub59 for men. but for women, 1:05 is definitely among the best, that's upper echelon.

i'm naive to drugs. don't see how hassan/kejelcha would be cheating, especially being under project oregon: rupp is one of the most tested athletes in the world etc. tons of scrutiny of project oregon comes with more testing.

i personally don't like making drug allegations, especially for athletes like this who have never had problems. takes away from their accomplishments.

pc!

lance armstrong was the most tested athlete in the world at one time. maybe i'm just being cynical, but the smoke ain't that old: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/19/sports/nike-oregon-project-alberto-salazar-dathan-ritzenhein.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share&_r=0

ya that's bad stuff.

i guess the definition of "old" is the question. alot of that happened 4+ years ago etc. Hassan/Kejelcha have only been training with him and the project for a few years, iirc.

but ya, it'd be great if they just ditched Salazar and picked up a clean coach to run it.

that testimony from Datahn is very damning.

Salazar is a piece of shit.

2018 Chicago Marathon: Elite Field

https://assets-chicagomarathon-com.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Athlete-Roster-100318.pdf

https://www.chicagomarathon.com/press-center/elite-athlete-field/

MO FARAH, Rupp, Kirui, Mutai etc

crazy looking at the elite list.. how the fastest guys on there (2:04 guys) are "completely unknown" to most folks who follow running somewhat.

Also curious what Parker Stinson does. His CIM full was on pace to be 2:10 ish before he blew up due to cramps at like mile 22.

Mo is in incredible shape right now.. that Great North half he did (where he beat Jake) was really rough apparently, tons of headwind.. still dropped 59:26 or whatever. That's prime shape for him, and now he has marathon experience.

Galen in form to break the American Record too..

excited for CHI.

well this is crazy.. new road 10k EU record by Julien Wanders.. dude was battling Cheptegei (27:16) at the end........... Cheptegei is perhaps the best in the world.

that's absolutely nuts.

27:32 .. which beats MO FARAH'S previous EU record of 27:44.

oh, also, he ran 28:12 there last year, to Cheptegei's 27:28.
