Jorgensen went out at basically 18 flat 5k pace which is 2:31:54 pace. I figured she was taking it conservative and would try and negative split it. Instead she hit the wall pretty big. She lost nearly a minute from 30-35k (18:58 for that 5k) and then another minute on top of that from 35-40k (20:01 for that 5k) and then ran 21:06 pace to the finish.
40k to finish (21:06 5k pace)
If you were her what would you do now?
The whole year her thinking was "I'm just training for the marathon, none of this stuff matters." But this run would seem to indicate her best distance isn't the marathon at all. Jordan Hasay took to the marathon like a fish to water.
Jorgensen shocked people with her 15:15 for 5k indoors in February but this run today was the complete opposite.
