Better, Faster, Stronger

Sir Roger Bannister

When the world's first sub-4-minute mile had been run in 1954 by Sir Roger Bannister, Franz Stampfl, Bannister's coach wrote this:  "Training is principally an act of faith.  The athlete must believe that through training he will become fitter and stronger...He must believe that through training his performances will improve and continue to improve indefinitely as long as he continues to train to progressively stiffer standards."

Do you believe?
