After spending two years being known as the man who came agonisingly close to matching the marathon world record, Wilson Kipsang of Kenya broke that record handsomely in Berlin on Sunday morning, clocking 2.03.23, thus taking 15 seconds off compatriot Patrick Makau’s 2.03.38, set in this same race two years ago.

Day Four has been a hill day. We offer another option this week, of four to six 800 meters at 5k mile pace. Remember, be careful, when you race, you need to give your body recover time between races and hard workouts.

You are now racing a couple of times a week. Remember, each time you race should be counted as a hard workout. Be careful, cool down and stretch after each race, and change out of your wet clothes as soon as possible.

Racing is where it is all supposed to come together. However, runners search for the perfect race their entire careers. Cross country courses differ, and unless you get on the same courses, it is hard to compare efforts.
