Kipchoge did it!

Two years after coming up 25 seconds short in Monza, Eliud Kipchoge truly did it today in the Wiener Prater, running a full marathon in 1 hours, 59 minutes and 40 seconds. Watching the live feed on Youtube I almost started crying as Kipchoge broke free from his pace keepers and smashed through that historic barrier to hug his wife.

Meanwhile in Umeå, I am at 82 km of running this week and my legs are beginning to feel slightly heavy. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to go for a faster afternoon run to see if I could still sustain my planned pace for Beirut. Perhaps thanks to Kipchoge but I was actually a bit surprised by how easy it felt to keep every split well under 5 minutes. As for tomorrow though, I am still undecided if I will go for a long run or not as it would take me above 100 km and I do not want to risk any injuries. At least, my new Bola compression socks were absolutely awesome, regardless of how stupid I may look.
