Betsy Saina is fit.
Her description of the Block workout, where she ran a) 10k in 35 minutes, took ten minute break, 2), 10k in 33:20, then, 3-4 hour nap, and 3), 10k in 35 minutes, 4), 10x1k in 3:20-3:30, or race pace, so, over 40k in one day at race pace, should impress and terrify. Geeks will know the workout comes from Dr. Renota Cannova, the mercurial Italian distance coach who oversees the training of Betsy Saina.
How fit is Betsy Saina? We believe that the women’s race will come down to Betsy Saina, winner of the Paris Marathon and Nancy Kiprop, winner of the Vienna Marathon.
