how not to "pr"

by Wendy

All runners have a “personal record” or a “personal best.” By default and definition we have a PR for every distance we have ever run. The quickest we’ve ever crossed the finish line! Our personal victory! Our glory days!

The internet is flooded with advice on “How to PR in the 5k” and similar. To me, that answer is fairly simple: increase core and glue strength first, lift heavier, integrate posterior chain quickness and explosiveness next, and train with graduated speedwork. Voila!
