Quote Of The Day
“This January and February I was doing the best marathon training of my career. The mileage was high. The legs, though not feeling good exactly, were strong. In a telltale sign of impeding doom, I was looking lovingly at my training log. Then I inevitably got greedy and pushed a sore plantar fascia too far. I tried for six weeks to preserve my fitness and make it to the start line in London. In the end my foot just couldn’t hold up under the strain. … My freshman year college the very wise @hakondevries told me that the most dangerous time as athlete is after a big breakthrough in training or racing. When you’re firing on all cylinders and not just dreaming of big things, but beginning to think that you’re destined for them, that’s when it becomes incredibly hard to take a step back, ‘ruin’ the hot streak, and rest. However, The devil (and maybe some of your tendons) will have his/their due. Greed, despite what you may have heard, is bad. It’s damn good advice and maybe I’m finally going to listen to it.”
