The truth is that running hurts. No one gets faster without meeting their personal pain barrier straight on.

There’s only one rule: The guy who trains the hardest, the most, wins. Period. Because you won’t die. Even though you feel like you’ll die, you don’t actually die. Like when you’re training, you can always do one more. Always. As tired as you might think you are, you can always, always do one more… If you overtrained, it means that you didn’t train hard enough to handle that level of training, so you weren’t overtrained; you were actually undertrained to begin with. So there’s the rule again: The guy who trains the hardest, the most, wins.
Floyd Landis


"If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got"
