Quotes by Matt Fitzgerald  (?)

“Low-intensity, high-volume training develops the sort of suffering tolerance that enhances fatigue resistance more effectively than does speed-based training. Fast runs may hurt more, but long runs hurt longer. The slow-burn type of suffering that runners experience in longer, less intense workouts is more specific to racing.”
Matt Fitzgerald, 80/20 Running: Run Stronger and Race Faster By Training Slower

“One cannot improve as an endurance athlete except by changing one’s relationship with perception of effort.”
Matt Fitzgerald, How Bad Do You Want It?: Mastering the Psychology of Mind over Muscle

“Gratitude” is about letting go of desired outcomes and fully embracing the privilege and process of pursuing goals and dreams. “Believe” refers to the confidence that arises naturally through this process, a self-trust that is the antithesis of the doubt-fueled fixation on goals and dreams expressed in Siri’s nightly fantasy of having the perfect race at the 2000 Olympics. Siri”
