Bekele had trained just seven weeks before he competed in Chicago and missed his goal of improving his PB. But his manager Jos Hermens confirmed that Bekele’s training has gone well. “He is better prepared than before for his third marathon,” he said. “When he was running on the track he could train for two months and then break a world record. But this approach does not work in the marathon.
“After Chicago, Kenenisa knew that he had to change something. For ten years he had the same training rhythm. He needed something new and different impulses. This is why I brought him together with Renato Canova. And it is going well. If he runs a low 2:04, improving by around one minute, that would be fine.”
