“In a wide variety of human activity, achievement is not possible without discomfort.”
Alex Hutchinson, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance

“You judge what’s sustainable based not only on how you feel, but on how that feeling compares to how you expected to feel at that point in the race.”
Alex Hutchinson, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance

“A runner is a miser, spending the pennies of his energy with great stinginess, constantly wanting to know how much he has spent and how much longer he will be expected to pay. He wants to be broke at precisely the moment he no longer needs his coin.”
Alex Hutchinson, Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance
