Being injured or carrying a bit of pain without any clear path forward can feel incredibly isolating, especially when it’s experienced amidst genuine physical isolation. I’m sure there are people out there pushing themselves pretty hard, but I’m using this as a time to work on some weaknesses that have had me running with my foot slightly on the clutch, rather than full throttle. I’ve often found that running is the easy part, with strength work the first thing to be let go when I’m tired, but now I see this as my chance to get back on top of things.  My physio [Brad Beer] is based on the Gold Coast (about 1,100km away) but the online consults and app with all my exercises have given me some much-needed structure and accountability.
WHAT I THINK ABOUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT FOOD | A COLUMN BY DAVID MCNEILL At the risk of being condescending, and calling all runners control freaks, my experience is that habitual runners (from the hobby joggers to the Olympic medalists) share qualities of being perfectionist, pedantic, meticulous, and non-compromising....

Geb first turned heads as a teenager, winning both the 5000m and 10,000m events at the 1992 IAAF World Junior Championships.  Geb was just getting started, with a career than would span over 25 years and involve success at the highest level in distances from 5000m to the marathon. With two Olympic gold medals and four World Championship titles over 10,000m, few match Haile’s track accomplishments; he set an astonishing 27 world records during his career. Furthermore, when the time came to switch to road running, he succeeded there too, winning the Berlin Marathon for four consecutive years, the Dubai Marathon for three straight years, as well as setting two marathon world records (2:04.26 then 2:03.59).
