A Strength Becomes Weakness

"Basketball, football, gymnastics, boxing, track events under one mile, soccer, swimming events under 400 meters, volleyball, wrestling, and weightlifting are all sports that require the vast majority of training time spent in anaerobic activity. Long distance and ultra endurance running, cross country skiing, and 1500+ meter swimming are all sports that require aerobic training at levels that produce results unacceptable to other athletes or the individual concerned with total conditioning and optimal health."

In other words, it's important to be able to run 1500 meters, if one aspires to being fit.  But it's just as important not to become TOO good at running 1500+ meters, if one aspires to be fit.
