Ever wonder what it would be like to be an elite runner? This article describes what sets elite runners apart from everyday runners.
The article isn’t really surprising although a couple of points caught my eye. The first being how quickly they go through shoes. At 2.5-3 months I thought I was going through quickly while training for a marathon but elite runners go through a pair of shoes every 2-4 weeks.
The other point was that elite runners tend to be injured once a month. I guess it really shouldn’t be surprising when they are pushing themselves as hard as they are in training.
