Seko: Unfortunately, at the present time the Japanese runners wouldn't receive the prize money. They have not come to that level.Sri Chinmoy: But you have come to that level, and you will be able to get it. Now, I would like you to advise one of my students about his training. His best marathon time is 2:56, but I would like him to run 2:30. Please advise him how he can improve.
Seko: How many miles do you run a week?
Pahar: Fifty or sixty.
Seko: You have to double it.
Sri Chinmoy, Japan, my life bows to your heart, Agni Press, 1984
