Weekly RunDown #106

“Leave no stone unturned in your endeavours to be the best you can be.”
Ron Hill

An interview with Ron Hill, where I got the quote from

Gary Cohen interview with Ron Hill

This week's Interview Tuesday was with Randy Gilbert of Leitchfield Kentucky

If you were somehow out of the loop Eliud Kipchoge did what was expected, at least I expected it, and broke the marathon world record but how fast he ran was amazing.  Also, what does it look like after a race that goes as planned and how about calling your shot then making it 

Sweat Elite put out some interesting pace notes on Kipchoge's record run:
2:01:39 Marathon Pace is equal to:
  • 100m pace: 17.3 
  • 200m pace: 34.6 
  • 400m pace: 69.1 
  • 800m pace: 2:18 
  • 1000m pace: 2:53 
  • 1500m pace: 4:19 
  • 3km Pace: 8:38 
  • 5km Pace: 14:24 
  • That is 42 x 1km reps at 2:53 without a break!

This was written on Kipchoge before Berlin - there is an argument for him being not the best marathoner ever but the best distance runner ever when you look at what he has done in the past in much shorter races

Whether I would run the 100 or the 50 I would like to run the Black Hills race one day, here is a report on the 100.  I lived in Rapid City when I was in Junior High and have family connections in SD and let alone the Black Hills are beautiful!
