"I'm more relaxed, the change from track has given me a massive boost and I'm enjoying it more than ever", he told a news conference on Tuesday two hours after arriving from Ethiopia.

Having spent close to a decade lining up as the favourite to bag multiple world, Olympic and European titles over 5,000 and 10,000 metres, Farah goes into Sunday's race not even ranked in the top 10.

"The aim is to go after the British record for sure, but at the same time since 2014 I've learned more and understand a lot more".

Farah, 35, will have his work cut out if he is to secure a medal at the weekend, though, with last year's victor Daniel Wanjiru and Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge among a strong field. "I guess the aim is just one step at a time, go out set a British record, see what I can do and then see what happens".

The 25-year-old from Mile End is in training for Sunday's 26-mile run in memory of her grandmother who died last year who had sight impairment.

"I've definitely prepared differently this year compared to 2014. When I ran the marathon in 2014 I had to think about saving energy for the track but this year I've gone hard at it", he said.

The firm had revenue of $239.00 million during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $217.88 million. The company has a market capitalization of $5,635.71, a price-to-earnings ratio of 150.00 and a beta of 1.11.

"Maybe. But as an athlete you have to set yourself new challenges".

"That's what it will take for me to medal in Tokyo".

Certainly Farah appeared more relaxed than a year ago where barely a press conference went by without him having to fend off questions about his former coach Alberto Salazar, who is still under investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency.

Farah has previously said the split had nothing to do with accusations that Salazar bent and abused anti-doping rules and was because he wanted to return to England where he is now coached by Gary Lough, the husband and former coach of women's marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe.

"I'm here to do a job on Sunday", Farah added.
