Working His Way to the Top

Great profile of the Sydney Marathon winner (and course record holder) Yuki Kawauchi here. This guy is a machine! Six days after running 2:11 in Sydney he ran a 6 second 1500m PB (3:50) and follows up the following day with a 5000m PB (13:58). You’ve got to admire his no-nonsense attitude:

I think common sense and true enjoyment are what’s needed. Back when people didn’t have as much money they thought about their training and worked hard to get better. At some point technology became more important and they started relying more on scientific training and things like supplements and taping, and maybe they forgot what the important things are.
