KILIAN JORNET 29:59″ IN 10KM ON A ROAD RACE- HYTTEPLANMILA

KILIAN JORNET SIGNS 29:59″ ON 10KM ASPHALT. The record in these 10km Hytteplanmila was held by Jakob Ingebrigtsen with a time of 27:54″. It has not been Kilian’s debut as an asphalt runner, as we have already seen him successfully running for example the 21k/+14.00m asphalt half marathon with a 1h26min time. A fantastic time for such a race.

For yesterday’s race, Kilian himself was already thinking for 29-30 min as a target. While in some previous trainings he had run at similar paces. The quality of the athletes at the starting line made Kilian, as planned, to travel from the first km in the rear group, with the aim of going below the 30min as he finally achieved. The race was won today with 28:20″ and Kilian finished at 18th place.

RACE ANALYSIS

The race begun in the Norwegian town of Ruyse with about 5°C of temperature and Kilian Jornet launching the group until the first kilometer with a time of 2:48″. From there, Kilian run his own race in the second group, with quite solid steps, reaching the third kilometer in 8:43″, already away from the leading group.

It was very interesting to see, in the images offered by the organization, how Kilian was one of the only runners in the top group without carbon plate shoes. The Catalan runner was wearing the SALOMON SLAB PHANTASM.

He arrived to kilometer 5 with 14:34″, with partial times that augured a timing close to 29 minutes. However from there, the partials between 2:57″-58″/km were given away for 3:00″/km or even 3:10″/km showing how difficult it is to run an asphalt race.

Km 7-   3.04″
Km 8-   3.09″
km 9-   3.10″
Km 10- 3.03″

The last few kilometres have shown us the persistence with which Kilian has tried to stay in the group between 16th and 18th place in which he has crossed the finish line, with 1.40″ difference with the winner and with a very meritorious time of 29:59″.

Moreover, if we analyse the workouts that Kilian has shared on his social media in recent weeks. Remember that just 15 days ago, he did a training on the track of 85 km at an average pace of 4.13m/km, so the time he achieved today, puts into perspective the quality and resources of the athlete based in Norway.

Now what? KILIAN JORNET TO MARATHON …

Yesterday, Salomon sporting director Greg Vollet confirmed that the annual Salomon Gold Trail Championship grand final will not have Kilian at the starting line because Kilian had a special commitment with the asphalt. It could be running a marathon in the next few days, such as Valencia’s Marathon.

We will see!!!
