tbh before i got into running i may not have been interested or even unimpressed. Not until you run and you realise how insane it is.
Completely agree, I remember being able to run dead easy in the gym, long distances no problem.

That jump to trying it outdoors..... tough doesn't even cut it.

I spend a lot of time up big hills and these marathon runners have nothing on fell runners. Different breed.

I am currently planning walking the Bob Graham Round in the Lake District over 5 days. The BGR is run under 24 hours. 66 miles and 27000ft of ascent, and 42 peaks.

Load of bollox the likes of timing car in front of him to block any winds and pace makers to drop in and out.
He’s not far from doing it in a proper race...this is a bit meh :rolleyes:
😂😂😂Spoken like a true cyclist! Even with timing car, clean air, etc you can’t knock the effort. What it does is pave the way for someone to achieve it without aid of any sort, this is how we progress as a species

Absolutely this.

Kipchoge said as much today in a press conference. He was talking about when he broke the recognised WR in Berlin last year and people were saying it was incredibly quick and would stand for years. Bekele missed it this year by 2 seconds.

As soon as someone starts breaking down barriers it changes mindsets.

I really hope he does it, I’m very confident he will.

There you go....and why physically it might be an amazing achievement it doesn’t interest me at all.
I think on the right day he’s capable of doing it without all the aero aids this attempt uses
