I have. Track and Field at the college level - distance runs, interval training, ladder training, circuit training, weights, swimming, technique work, etc, etc. Very intense training with top national coaches. Worked to the point of exhaustion/nausea on many occasions.
I was one of the hardest working people on the team, and I was good, but not great. I had teammates who went on to compete at the world-class level. Did they work harder? Do more? Eat better? Have more discipline? No. They had something I didn't and no amount of work was going to get me to that level.
