RE: Bekele 7.40

i kinda like running wrote:

Quite a while indeed. Bekele hasn't been training at 100% due to fear of re-injury. I doubt Bekele himself was expecting much faster today.

And let's not forget, Bekele will not be racing a 3000m in London. I personally believe he will defend his 10k title successfully. The 5k will be more closely contested, although he has to be considered a major threat there as well despite today's "slow" performance.

what was his last kilometer like in that 10k last fall?
sub 2:30? no calf pain then. dunno what the issue is. maybe he tweaked it again in training.
