New Australian record in the 3000m. 7 minutes 28.02 seconds, which is the 17th fastest 3000m of all time.

Uganda's Jacob Kiplimo claimed the victory in 7:26.64 - the fastest time in the world this year - and Norwegian Jakob Ingebritsen (7:27.05) was second.

some seriously fast times being run this year. olympics woulda been nuts.. wondering if they'll be able to "peak again" for next year.

Stewart Mcsweyn is in career best form. He just broke another Australian National Record in the 1500m at the Wanda Diamond League in Doha in a time of 3:30:51! If he keeps improving he might have a chance of a medal at the Olympics.

uhh wtf.

top 4 finishers @ valencia ran under the previous WR .. all 4 of them ran under 58 min for the half.

that's incredible & weird.

good writeup:

https://www.letsrun.com/news/2020/12/utter-insanity-kibiwott-kandie-runs-5732-as-the-top-4-finishers-break-the-world-record-in-the-valencia-half-marathon/








57:31 wtf?



rhonex, 57:49 half marathon debut. wtf?





Quote
Yet none of those record-breaking runs could compare to what unfolded on Sunday morning at the Valencia Half Marathon. In a race that redefined the limits of the 13.1-mile event, the first four finishers ran under Geoffrey Kamworor’s 58:01 world record.

The sub-58:00 club, which a few hours ago did not even exist, now has four members. Road running has officially gone insane.

wtf.

Incredible!!!
BTW , 58 minutes half marathon is  2:45 average pace! For 21 consecutive KMs.
Or if you prefer, 4 consecutive 5K runs at around 13:45
That was the 5K WR in the 50s.
That is faster than the current women 5K WR.
If the woman WR holder started her run together right when they completed 16K, and repeated her WR run, she would finish last ,15 seconds or so behind!!!!!

I will never ever get over the awe that those conversions cause. :o
« Last Edit: December 07, 2020, 09:42:04 am by vag »
Target training paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 23:06 :
Easy run : 5:52
Tempo run : 4:53
VO2-max run :4:24
Speed form run : 4:05

---

it's the biggest trick in the run game.. go slow to go fast. it doesn't make sense until it smacks you in the face and you're like ....... wtf?

it's the shoes. like when swimmers started using those sharkfin bodysuits in the early 2000s and every swimming WR went down in short order.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
