I noted this quotation long back may be in 1992. I had no interest in running or walking at that time. Now that I developed interest in running and trying to do some regular training every week with three days of running and three days of cross training, this quotation seems to be more relevant to remember. I thought it is relevent for many long-distance running enthusiasts, who want to break at least their personal recods.
Herb Elliott, the unbeaten Australian one miler said it: "Any one can train when he feels like it. But you have to keep training when you don't feel like it. You have to keep going at it all the time. Even when you're tired. That's what makes a champion. And that's what proves you're a man."
