That George Sheehan article is worrying. Dr Van Aaken suggests distance runners should be 20% below average weight, Sheehan 15%.  I make that max 68kg for a 6ft runner. According to his theory, 68kg less 5kg for being 5ft 9in means about 63kg. 63? I'll die getting that thin.

 

PerpertualC, I'm not sure that physiologically one can convert fat to muscle, but I know what you mean.

Busted!

Still, I did completely make up a survey for my A-level Geography dissertation.
