Bob Kennedy — July 2nd, 1996

 

Context & Details 

Kennedy won the 1996 U.S. Olympic Trials in the 5,000m and then a few weeks later established the then-American record in the event of 12:58.75 in Stockholm on July 8th. 

This is a workout he did 6 days before that then-American Record run. 

Epic.
