First day of track in Delhi


As of September 2017, new Sweat Science columns are being published at Check out my bestselling new book on the science of endurance, ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, published in February 2018 with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell.

My report on the men’s 5000 metres, along with a few other notes from the first day of track and field action at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi (and a short video of England’s Chris Thompson, who finished fifth), is now available on the Canadian Running website. I’ll be posting occasional reports there, focusing on the distance events. I’ll also live-tweet some of the distance events (as I did for the 5,000 metres tonight) at @sweatscience.
