What have you done recently? Cleaned your apartment? Run for a couple minutes on a treadmill? Walked 10,000 steps in a single day? Well good for you, but that’s absolutely nothing compared to what the participants in the Rio Olympics decathlon just went through.
Over the course of two grueling days, the Olympic athletes participate in 10 events. Day 1 includes a 100-meter race, a 400-meter race, a long-jump competition, a shot-put competition and a high-jump competition. Day 2 involves 110-meter hurdles, pole vaulting, throwing a discus, throwing a javelin and then, to top it all off, a 1500-meter race.
At the end of it, you feel something like this:
Seriously, just look at these exhausted world-class athletes.
Anyway, what were you saying about your 10,000 steps?
