Will Bernard Lagat Live Forever?

http://www.newyorker.com/news/sporting-scene/will-bernard-lagat-live-forever

"What explains his longevity? One obvious explanation is that he doesn’t train very hard, at least in the way that “hard” is defined by serious runners. Lagat takes a day off every week, and he takes five weeks off every fall. At his peak, he runs about sixty-five miles a week. When he talks about his training, he sounds relaxed. Cam Levins, who came in third on Saturday night, recently ran a hundred and ninety miles in a week. Lagat does run his workouts hard, and he has perfect form"

"the secret to running: not running"

(lagat's time off)

http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10000872396390444032404578006274010745406

"Many elite runners cover more than 100 miles per week. Not Lagat. This past year, he said, he maxed out at about 65 miles. For him, training is about intensity. Volume is overrated."
