My knee is much better. I am mentally gathering strength and psyche for my next training period which will focus on volume first and I am aiming at being able to do up to 70Kms per week before I start doing speedwork.
My knee is not 100% but it is much better. Say, about 95%. I wont need any more than two weeks of rest before I can start training again. Its raining here so its muddy and therefore I wouldn't train anyways.
I failed to watch the London Marathon and squirmed throughout Sunday but I am glad Wajiru once again executed a brilliant performance. Kebede did not disappoint. Lel did though its understandable. I hope to God that the Berlin Marathon in September will be a race of giants (hopefully) pitting the following against each other:
Samuel Wanjiru 2:05:10 - London Course Record, World Half Marathon record Holder, Olympic Champion
Martin Lel 2:05:15
Mwafrika (Robert K Cheruiyot) 2:07:45 - Boston Course Record
Haile Gebrselassie 2:03:59 - World Record
Meriga Derba 2:06:38(?)
Abel Kirui (clocked 2:05:04 in Rotterdam Marathon in April 2009)
Tsegay Kebede 2:05:20
James Kwambai (clocked 2:04:27 in Rotterdam Marathon in April 2009)
Duncan Kibet (clocked 2:04:27 in Rotterdam Marathon in April 2009) - Kenya's second fastest and Rotterdam course record
Patrick Makau 2:06:14 Worlds second fastedt in Half marathon
Zersenay Tadesse(?) - he didn't Finnish London his Marathon debut but he has what it takes - maybe he needs to work on volume.
Marilos Gomes Dos Santos (?)
