You all realize just like any other track and field event, cross country race, sport in general, it takes a few years to get the marathon distance down? No one is a super star from the get. Although Kipchoge is the GOAT at the marathon distance he was stuck at 2:04 flat for 3 years. Then stuck at 2:03 flat for 2 more years. Kamworar has been at 2:06 for 6 Years. Haile got stuck around 2:06 flat for about 3 years before breaking out. Give Stinson some time. It was only his 2nd Marathon. He's done the event TWICE. Stinson will be on that 2020 Olympic team for the marathon regardless if anyone thinks he's overrated or not. He's showing progression from CIM into Chicago. Each of you should post your PR's on this forum before bashing him and then we can pick apart why you all haven't run that fast.
I’m not bashing Parker. I am bashing people who think it’s all the coach’s fault or Parker’s fault. I am also suggesting JK would do a good job. If we aren’t allowed to talk about people on here because our PRs aren’t better than theirs then why should we even be allowed to talk to each other right now. One of us has faster PRs than the other. So either I can’t talk to you or you can’t talk to me. Why shoul Eliud take advice from anyone slower than 2:03:00?? They haven’t gone as fast as him so anyone (like his coach) who might criticize him at any time is dumb and wrong right?
By the way, what these guys entered the marathon at is very good on any standard scale. So no learning curve. Cam Levins? No learning curve. Galen Rupp? No learning curve. Molly Huddle? Awesome. Not everyone has to train and race miserably before they “get it.”
Moron, it's not advice, it's called common sense.
You simply are over analyzing the obvious. He went too hard in the early miles and he paid the price for it. End of conversation.
That's not coaching, that's just stupid running by a capable runner who went out too fast. Got it?
