Last quote by Mark Burnley

Economy is a measure much like miles per gallon in a car. The more economical the engine, the further a given fuel load [muscle glycogen] can take you. Theoretically, the maximum speed a runner can sustain is given by a thing called the 'critical speed'. Above this your physiology goes haywire. We know from elite 10,000m runners that critical speeds of just over 21km per hour are possible [sub-two-hour pace], but running this fast places a severe strain on your carbohydrate reserves. The probability of hitting the wall within the 26.2 miles is very high.feedback
