Tyson Gay 1982
“One of my toughest workouts would be on the track and it’s called a “400 Breakdown.” That’s where you run 300 meters, rest for 30 seconds, and then run 100 while you still have that lactic acid buildup. So you have two sets of those and then after that you do mat runs. Basically, you stand on a high-jump mat and do four sets of high knees for 30 seconds, and then as soon as you get off there you have to run 200 meters on the track with all that lactic acid still in your legs. You don’t look forward to doing it, but when you do it you really see the benefits.”
*Get to a high school track and try this 400 Breakdown workout. Good luck.
Kurtis Blow 1959
“I got so into it that I couldn’t put it down, and I got to the last book in the Bible, Revelations, and it’s sort of like a prophecy. And I said I’d better get my act together before all this stuff starts to happen.”
*Read the Bible today, especially Revelations. Get your act together! Play basketball afterwards.

- Consider the planner’s pay structure. A planner who earns money based on commission rather than a flat, hourly rate could have an incentive to steer you in a particular direction.
