That’s the response I got about potential workouts for tomorrow. I cannot wait.
Reading The Perfect Mile by Neil Bascomb, about the quest of three runners to break the 4:00 mile barrier. If you ever needed any kind of inspiration or were just curious about the training that went into this, the book is a great read.
Each of the runners is compelling in their way — Santee’s brutal childhood, Bannister’s scientific rigor — but the story of John Landy has really captured this reader’s imagination. Based on a few words from Emil Zatopek, Landy just kills his training in solitary late night runs and emerges… Powerful stuff.
