a link about the world's fastest lunge mile. "After I saw
it, I knew I could beat it," he said.

exercise in excruciating leg pain. Instead of walking or running
a mile, Jamasen lunged to his knees, alternating left and
right, with each step. It took him 1,370 lunges.

at all surprised by Jamasen's desire to break a world record.
