Yes--that reminds me of what I was discussing with a young woman who placed in the top 20 or so at Div III Nationals this year in a couple of events:

You think "When I get fitter, this will get easier." But it never does! All that happens is that you become able to push even harder and suffer more...

Not a complaint--just an appreciation of the joys and challenges of pushing hard!
