Mo Farah: Nothing will compare to winning in London
Mo Farah insists he will chase as many medals as he possibly can on the track before turning his attention to the marathon.
"It's definitely true, I'll definitely be stepping up to the marathon at some point but I've not decided when yet."
Mo Farah Quotes of the week
Talk immediately turned to the Brit stepping up to road racing after securing double gold at the Olympics earlier this month.
He also doubled up for 5,000m and 10,000m gold at the European Championships two years ago and narrowly missed out on a repeat at the Worlds last year.
And now the 29-year-old is eyeing the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in two years' time as his next major goal.
"I've still got a long way to go, there are always more things to achieve and when everything's going well, it's good to get as many gold medals as you can," he said.
"I feel like I would like to carry on on the track and then after that go on the road. I've never won a title at a Commonwealth Games so it would be good to have another win.
"You can't have too many medals, you've got to take what you can."
Farah explained the marathon is definitely in his plans although he has not made his mind up as to when he will make the transition.
"It's definitely true, I'll definitely be stepping up to the marathon at some point but I've not decided when yet," he added. "We'll just have to wait and see what the coach says - he hasn't said much.
"He's said to take it one race at a time, see how it goes, see how we recover and then go into next year. "I'm always wanting to try new events and test myself to see what I can do."
But he said nothing will ever compare to winning two gold medals at your home Olympics.
"To have the Olympics in your hometown was the dream," he said. "It's exciting, being a London man and growing up here and winning two gold medals at the Olympics means a lot.
"There's nothing out there that means more than an Olympic medal unless I can became an Olympic champion at a different event."
