Agnes is training in Iten with a group of Kenyan male pacemakers and there is no other female in the group. The training of Agnes contains a lot quality. The overall quality of her Training is higher than I have ever seen before. The volume isn’t that high. Around 120- 130 kilometres per week in average. Usually Mondays she does in the morning 14 to 16 km at a very high pace considering the altitude of around 2400m and the hilly terrain in Iten. She starts with around 4.20 pace and after 3k the pace goes to 3.45 – 3.35 per kilometre and even uphill she maintains that pace. This is faster for the normal Monday moderate runs in Kenya that I have seen with other female runners. She consistently drops many of the male pacemakers in training.
