2:01:40 for Kipchoge. That’s a new WR, 1:17 faster than the previous WR.

In the last 50 years, the marathon WR has dropped like ~6 minutes total. Today, it dropped by another full minute, and more.

That’s absolutely mind blowing.

updated official: 2:01:39 (-1:18)

splits: crazy.

Those splits are absolutely sick.

Nice info, hadn’t seen his 10k splits.

It’s just so crazy. He is unreal. I think his last 5k was 13:5X or something as well.

I love how in control he is when he races, looks like he’s the director of his own masterpiece. Maybe it’s easier to appreciate in something like a marathon, where it takes so “long” to unfold. Just seems different watching him though, compared to pretty much everyone else.

I think he’s good for an official sub 2:01 for sure… It seems like he does want sub2:00 though. I mean, a performance like this would make most athletes happy, walk off into the sunset… But, from the interviews i’ve seen, seems like he wants more. I think he truly believes he can go sub2:00, which sounds crazy but, so does 2:01:39 lmao, or his 2:00:25 with “unofficial” pacemakers etc. If anyone can break this limit, he can. He’s the real deal.

Here’s a few workouts he did a few weeks before Berlin, absolute freak status:

if i can feel like i did tonight, every time i run, i’d be more happy running. i mean i love running but, i love it way more when I feel like I did tonight. felt good. fast/snappy/powerful/loose/bouncy/strong etc. compare that to this morning… where I felt like absolute garbage.

gn! :ibrunning:
