Watching this also reminds me of that diatribe that our friend Bmac went on about the failure of periodization, as evidenced by the lack of PB's at major championships. When you see such a cagey, tactical race you realise though why they don't go all out from the start; when there's so much at stake, you chase the gold (and the glory) not the PB.
Absolutely. Lagat was boxed in the end, hell of a save of his behalf. That 10k loss was brutal to watch. He was throwing down, shear grit!

Today's Mainpage WOD:

"Meadows"

For time:
20 Muscle-ups
25 Lowers from an inverted hang on the rings, slowly, with straight body and arms
30 Ring handstand push-ups
35 Ring rows
40 Ring push-ups


FOR TIME, do this motion SLOWLY

Not only does this workout likely have no training benefits, they now also provide you with directly conflicting goals within the workout!

The idiocy hurts.

Most of the health benefits, if not all of them, accrue with just a moderate program emphasizing aerobic training roughly half the time, with a few resistance training sessions per week.
