Excellent...absolutely Excellent...

Yesterday in Lisbon i was very pleased to assist at LisbonHalf,one of the fastest race on this distance.
Organization totally perfect and my congrats to them.
If u have lost livestreaming of the race...dont the complete video of the race:

A race where women started before men with a solution more tactitc at the beginning while in men,Wilson Too as pacer,went out incredibly fast probably killing the hopes of gold for someone who followed him in a impressive 21.44 at 8k..
Mo Farah intelligently understood pace was too fast and choose the solution to leave this group away (with Kibet,Adola and Micah Kogo ) and coming to finish with his own pace.At 14k the maximum gap in 12sec,with lead in 39.13.
In last part Mo did his show closing slowily every km more on the head of the race before going away with Micah Kogo.
Here the official splits released by organizers for Farah:

Honestly i dont believe in 18km splits...think some mistakes otherwise 2.06 at km in that moment..

After the finish,i did this interview where Farah had spoke about the race and more on his future and road-career.

Interviews also to Rose Chelimo and Priscah Jeptoo on the women:

In last period,the road to Barcellona is went through this quality training-workouts: Tuesday 21st January: 30 km in Moiben (15 going + 15 back) in 1:45:46  (medium speed  3’31”5) Saturday 25th January: 10 x 400m in 1’09” (recover 1’) + 10 x 200 in 32”5 (rec. 1’) + 5 x 400 in 67” (rec. 1’) + 10 x 200 in 31”5 (rec. 1’) with …
