    How many times are you going running today?

    Post by runner_dude on Thu Dec 25, 2008 6:43 pm

    During the late 70s/early 80s there was a great rivalry between the British racers Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe where they were contesting 800m/1500m/mile world records and olympic medals. In 2006 they were interviewed together, here's a little snippet which made me smile:

    "I remember Christmas Morning before the 1980 Games," he said (Coe). "I'd run a 10 or 12-miler and then had my Christmas lunch, but I felt uneasy the whole afternoon. I suddenly realised what it was and thought: 'I bet that bastard is doing another training session'." At which point Ovett, grinning, added: "So you only did two training sessions?"

    +1. Although I saw more runners than normal on my run in the morning. My run at night was right at most people's supper time, so I didn't see any other runners.
