So what does it take according to Eliud?

 

On self discipline:

“Only the disciplined ones are free in life. If you are undisciplined, you are a slave to your moods. You are a slave to your passions.”

 

On preparation:

“To win is not important. To be successful is not even important. How to plan and prepare is crucial. When you plan very well and prepare very well, then success can come on the way. Then winning can come on your way.”

 

On thinking positively:

“Pleasure in what you are doing is what puts perfection in your work—that’s a quote by Aristotle.”

 

On consistency:

“I’m confident to say that if you want to grow in a profession, consistency is the key…I’m strict about my work goals and training. When I miss one [workout session], it’s like missing a discussion with your classmates, where six people are discussing a subject. If I miss one training, then I will not sleep well.”

 

On ''mental fitness''

“Mental fitness plays a big role during competition. If you don’t rule your mind, your mind will rule you. That’s the way I think about this sport.”

 

On race strategy:

“In the marathon, the first half is just a normal run. At 15 kilometers, 20 kilometers, everybody is still going to be there. Where the marathon starts is after 30 kilometers. That’s where you feel pain everywhere in your body. The muscles are really aching, and only the most prepared and well-organized athlete is going to do well after that. I’ll go with the pace, but after 30 kilometers, I’ll change to my own pace. And if you’re ready to follow me, then we can go together.”

 

On adaptability:

“Become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Accept change.”

 

On believing in yourself:

“I believe in what I am doing. To run a big marathon and win takes five months. When I’m on the starting line, my mind starts reviewing what I have been doing the last five months. I believe in my training, and I treat myself as the best one standing on that line.”

 

On managing pain during a marathon and the next  day:

“When I have a lot of pain, I try to confuse my mind to forget about the pain and think about the distance. I don’t want pain to be in my mind, because I’d really lose focus on running. After winning, you won’t have that pain, but it comes later. The marathon is hard; the second day, you don’t go up or down stairs.”
