My favorite event on the track is the 3000m steeple! But this games my main focus will be the 5000m women, I really hope that Almensh Belete can show her great talent on the track in London. No doubt that the last training camp in France (Font Romeu) with Salavarda will help her to place the icing on the cake. Greetings Lander
It was becoming close to start a marathon preparation with a death line of 1 august to be 100% fit.
But no worries the last training week went good and my first long run since the Antwerp marathon on 19 april was quite astonishing with 31km (average pace 3'48"/km or 15,8 km/u) and an average heart rate of 147. So green light for the coach to give me some heavier training runs.
Stay tuned and enjoy the sun in the upcoming week! Greetings Lander
Meantime in Font Romeu, some guys are sharpening up their speed. Pictures by the coach.
It's a lot less fun to run when you are running at my level at the moment. No excuses, it's just a fact. See you soon. Lander
Regrettable: this evening I will not run the Classic because I am sick. It would not be smart to run a 10 km race coughing all the time. Stay tuned. Lander

A stupid fall in Kenia caused a lot more problems then originally expected but after the training session on tuesday and the pop in my legs on wednesday, the future looks bright. Upcoming monday I will race a 10 km in Tessenderlo, I am curious about the result. My general fitness must be 100% on August the first when Salavarda starts with the marathon program.
