Training quote from Gold by Chris Cleave
"The only way you could bear the training, and certainly the only way you could endure the pain of the sprint, was to take life one fraction of a second at a time. You carried that attitude with you across the finishing line, and through the dressing room, and out into ordinary life with your kit still wet in your kitbag. One moment of pain was never unbearable unless you allowed it to have some kind of a relationship with the moments on either side of it. Atoms of time could be trained to operate quite effectively in strictly partitioned cubicles on the open-plan floor of the day."
