Farah considering return to track
LONDON (GBR): Mo Farah is considering a return to the track at the 2019 World Championships, informs BBC Sport. “Watching the European Indoor Championships on TV, I was thinking ‘Oh man! I want to get back out there,'” he said ahead of The Big Half in London on Sunday when he will defend his half marathon title. “I had said to myself that I wanted to finish in London [at the World Championships]. I was thinking ‘I just want to do marathons and it’s going to get easier’. It’s not easier. But seeing the (10,000m) results, it hasn’t really changed. The athletes doing well are 1500m indoors, the mile but in terms of long distances, it hasn’t really changed much, and now part of me is thinking ‘Have I still got it?'”

RunBlogRun opines: RunBlogRun hopes Mo Farah will run the 10,000m. We find it doubtful that he will use one of the big pay days he can get in global marathons at a World Champs such as Doha, where the humidity will be as much a factor as his fellow competitors.
