Marathon is a long way away from 10000m. As you know, some Marathoners just are not relatively fast. I know a 2:11+ Marathoner who never broke 55 for 440 yards (obviously an older guy). Some Marathoners average fairly close to their 10000m PB for Marathon.
I don't think you read his post. Part of what he is saying is that their 10000m PB may not be their true 10000 ability.
