  1. I just start to do 1000 push ups under 1h😁 check it out

  2. Kipchoge is so fun to watch. His form is awesome

  3. I'm 12 and i run a marathon in 1:58:45. Am i good?

  4. 2:48 that was mid foot running not heel striking lol it looks like heel strike cause of the angle i saw the breaking2 documentary it's mid foot

  5. That heel strike running animation kills me

  6. I have been trying to rewatch the breaking 2 documentary, but can't find it anywhere! Where did it go?

  7. Genetic but also their life is running even if going school, working, playing

    I know kipchoge has best record with helping lots of suppoter, especially pacemaker

  8. Genetics,environment and training aside; Eliud Kipchoge's 'head game' is on a level of its own. The man's a beast at staying in control of his mind. Its not unique though; elite mountain climbers have done it in environments and conditions that are limiting and potentially dangerous.

  9. Training on asphalt and concrete doesn't help the body.

  10. I used to run long distance in school, and I am a "ball of the foot" runner. I tried the "heel" technique and I understand why that technique is 2.3 x more likely to result in injury. I felt immense pressure on my knees and ankles sometimes to the point of sharp pain.

  11. Africans r genetic adventures……..

  12. Steroids is the answer…well it just a prank bro

  13. Take geneticas to a whole new level.

  14. Yes with the Nike Vapor fly 4%

  15. the fore foot running or the heel land running which will more support to long distance running?

  16. I don't want it. There must be something unreachable that everyone is striving for. The two-hour limit is magical

  17. I can run a 1 hour marathon and I’m only 3. Is that good?

  18. i'm 170 cm.. taller people are better in running but i'm trying to improve myself 🙂

  19. This video was so informative – thanks!

  20. Me and my friend ran 10 900m dashes in 1hrs
