Amazing what the human body is capable of.
Watch only his face and shoulders, and you’d take him for a thoughtful man out walking the dog. He moved through the whooping waving crowds calmly. Once, when he tossed a drink bottle, he was so controlled that he could aim where to throw it.
That was after 18 miles at 4:39 mile pace.
I'm happy to have run a 5k this last weekend maintaining almost a 7:30 mile pace. I'm 44, not 35 like Kipchoge, based on what he's done, I can see that I can speed things up some.
Thanks for the post.
