Mo Farah in the marathon (Read 400 times)


just a simple cat

    My guess is that he qualifies for Boston in his debut marathon!

      LOL...

       

      he'd qualify for Boston on a Recovery Run, unless someone put a piece of masking tape down and told him to run like an ostrich.

        Well, as they used to say (don't know about today's marathon a day types) there is no such thing as an 'easy' marathon. 26.2 is still a long ways. However, he could probably run his recovery pace for the distance and place in the top 100 or 150, a good 30-40 minutes under qualifying standards.

          BS.

            If the race has decent weather ...

             

            I think this is unlikely - More likely they will come through 1/2 @ 1:01:30 and it will be a game of attrition to mile 22 and one of the 3-5 studs left will put a big more on and it will turn into a 2-3 dog race.  The pressure will continue to be applied and there will be 3 in the 2:04-2:04:59 finish time window, but will not include Mo.  Mo will either DNF or finish 1-2 minutes back in 5th -7th place.

             

            What would you think the odds are on Mo finishing or DNF'ing?  60%/40% (Finishing / DNF'ing), 50/50?

             

             

            One thing I will say -- if the race gets tactical -- the others are stupid if they allow Mo to be in the lead group with a mile or two left.

              But he won't - He will be a rocket out there, burning red hot and either flame out or finish ... So it Ilene would give me 3-1 odds on him running a BQ, I might take some of that action.

                      Wonder if Mo reads this. Would this add performance pressure (due to the betting action) help or hinder him?

                      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
