Another nighttime run - 9.9kms in 42:05 (4:15's). As non-descript as ever.
I was sent this Youtube clip (thanks Colm). It's the 5,000m world record ran by Bekele in 2004. It's a must watch for any fan of athletics (commentary not in English but don't let that detract). Here it is:
Jaw-dropping stuff. Running 60 second laps and making it look easy. Plus Bekele basically ran the second half of the race by himself. Great to see the Big Mazungo in the same race.
Here are the splits:
Total 12:37.37 (eventually rounded down to 12:37.35)
That's how to run a 5km - gradually wind up the pace!
