Gwen Jorgensen, an accountant on leave from Ernst & Young, is a member of the USA Triathlon team that will compete in the London Olympics. In past blog posts, I’ve featured videos on her training for the swim and bike portions of the triathlon. In this blog post, I feature a video on her training for the run portion of the event.
Gwen Jorgensen was a Big Ten champion in the 3,000m and 5,000m events, and was an All American in track. I used to run. So, I can appreciate her ability to run a series of 5:00 minute miles, say in a 5k or 10k race. On my best days, I could only do 6:00 miles. At 5:00 miles, she is flying along.
In every triathlon event for which I’ve seen detailed results, Jorgensen has had the fastest time in the run portion of the race. Wow!
Good luck Gwen.
