Kilian Jornet series a la Cheptegei, record in 5.000 meters

"If you go to a track and try to run a single lap in a minute you will understand how incredibly fast it is to run at that speed for 5km"

Kilian Jornet has joined the athletes who are honoring the world record in 5.000 meters that he achieved last week Joshua Cheptegei

In our country, the fireproof Martín Fiz, He already did it by doing the same distance to see what the weather was like compared to the Ugandan.

3 days ago Jornet, returned to train on the track to pay tribute to Cheptegei

On his Instagram account he commented:

“When I was a teenager I had two photos in my training notebook: one of Stéphane Brosse and one of Kenenisa Bekele.

In this photo, Bekele was wearing a gray jersey when he broke the 5.000m world record.

Cheptegei ran this distance almost 2 seconds faster, in 12'35 '. When you watch these races on TV (or especially online), they seem to run almost effortlessly and it's hard to tell how fast they go.

If you go to a track and try to run a single lap in a minute or even just 100 meters in 15 seconds, you will understand how incredibly fast it is to run at that speed for 5 km, 12,5 laps or 50 times 100 meters! "

“Inspired by the incredible performances in Monaco, I went to the track for the first time after a couple of months.

It was quite busy as you can see, with a child, a bee and myself.

As I'm coming off my injury, I only did a few sets to avoid a relapse, but it feels good to start doing some speed work again.

When I was a teenager I had 2 pictures in my training notebook; one of Stéphane Brosse and one of Kenenisa Bekele. In this picture, @ kenenisabekele_42 was in a gray tee breaking the 5000m world record. Yesterday, @joshuacheptegei run this distance almost 2 seconds faster in 12'35 ”. When you watch this races in the TV (or mostly in some online streaming) it seems almost effortless and it is hard to realize how fast they go. If you go to a track and try to run a single loop in a minute flat or even just 100m in 15 seconds you will understand how insanely fast is to run at that speed for 5k, 12,5 laps or 50 times 100m!). Today, inspired from last night amazing performances at Monaco's meeting I went to the track for the first time after a couple of months. (And it was pretty busy as you can see with a kid, a bee and myself) In the way out of my injury I only did a few reps to avoid a relapse, but it feelt good to start doing some speed work again. .
