A lonely workout in Lausanne

July 6th 2004 - The Super Grand Prix in Lausanne didn't bring Kamiel what he hoped for: a fast time on the 5000 meter. A big bunch of Africans started at 12.45 pace. Kamiel did not try to follow them, just like the British runner behind him. Not an easy task to run a fast time on your own. At the club competition in Amsterdam, where he started out running 66/67 second laps and finished running 64 second laps, Kamiel was 4 seconds faster than Lausanne's 13.49.79. Asked by reporter Cors van den Brink about his feelings about the race, Kamiel qualified this 5k run as 'a lonely workout'. Kamiel further concluded he has to improve on his speed, something he will work on in Tirrenia, Italy, from July 13 thru 27.
