Jakob doing everything to avoid running a 1500m or a 5000m.
Where exactly in the world right now is there a 1500m race that's going to go under 3:30 or a 5k under 13:00? That's what it would take for him to show improvement. So why waste time on running some time trial that's not going to go that fast. May as well run some events you might not otherwise do.
Exactly, nobody is in very good shape. We know that the Kenyans aren't, Bekele is fat. Kipchoge isn't in white hot shape. 4:50 is quicker than Walker, Cram and Aouita probably a 3:48 or 3:31 shape for his first track race of the season.
