For those keen on running... or thinking of embarking on some running - here is a running documentary about a guy who had a goal to go from a beer drinking couch potato to a sub 2'20 marathon runner... in 2 years . It's quite a story... & a transformation... & inspiring.
I found it very interesting. It looks to be a 3 part series with the 2nd part coming out on the 1st April (ominous date i.e. April Fools). Anyway, I take my hat to this guy; he looks to be really taking it seriously, sincerely putting in the hard miles in a quest to at least get close to his goal...
The first episode of marathon running documentary Running to the Limits follows the first 18 months of filmmaker Alex Vero's attempt to become an elite marathon runner. The episode also features interviews from Bruce Tulloh, Bill Adcocks and Keith Anderson and lays out the question for the reasons behind the decline in British male marathon running.
Here is the 3rd & final instalment of the running documentary... "Running to the Limits"...
Alex had a good journey... a valuable experience - to say the least. Let alone made him fitter & likely add years to his life (based on his previous state of health).
I wish I could have 2 years to solely focus on my running. To be able to cross the t's & dot the i's in an optimal holistic approach to marathon training (i.e. altitude training, cross training, strength workouts, differing training environments, optimal recovery sessions/methods... let alone time to do the miles required).
Would be nice if there were updates on the runners involved in the doc. in the future.
