As You Suspected: You really could have gone harder

“You are always capable of doing more than you are doing.” There it is. Confirmation from Bill Morgan, an emeritus professor of kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin, that despite our great suffering in the closing kilometers of a race, we really could have pushed ourselves even harder. The quote appears in a New York Times article today by Gina Kolata, who writes about the mental side of bumping up against our physical limits (story).With tips on getting past those rough patches in a race from the likes of Paula Radcliffe and mid-packers alike, it's not a bad read for anyone looking to hit that new PR.
