RE: Sage Canaday's strava - 8 & 9 minute miles

I agree with the OP. Sage is an aerobic beast. His paces are 10 x slower than guys like Alex Varner, David Roche, Dylan Bowman, etc. I usually attribute it to altitude and that Sage does some massive hikes up mountains at extreme altitude. Look at a guy like Andy Wacker, who runs a 63-min half marathon and will run 80% at slower than 7:30/mi, but then his workouts are through the roof - 8 miles at sub-5:10/mi or stuff like that.

If you want to see a freak in training, check David Roche's training on Strava. 22 mile runs at 6:00/mi pace with thousands of feet of elevation... 5:00/mi GAP for 13-15 miles. It's damn impressive.

Article on Andy Wacker. I've met the guy... He's probably one of the nicest humans on the planet!
