    I particularly admire the bloke in the bottom left who is taking the opportunity to have a smoke break.

    How the person I'm working with today fought with Rhodesian Security Forces during the countries 'civil' war. He's so softly spoken and quiet I would never have guessed at all. Especially considering he now works in health care.

    Perhaps it's not all that surprising, but it amazed me.

    The training plan followed by Bekele to set the world record in the 5000 metres, in 2004, which still stands (12:37.35), thats 4:04/mile pace. Staggering speed!

    To give an idea, at that pace, that’d be a 6:06 1.5 mile return! :)
