RE: Kipchoge says he goes for a PB. Why doesn’t he say WR?

It is quite obvious that the PR is the relevant focus, not the WR. The WR just happens to be barely faster than the PR in this case.

What if your goal for the rest of the season is to PR, and the school record is close to the same time? Great. And what if someone transfers in and thrashes the school record by a minute? For the smart athlete, the GOAL is the PR, and the things outside of your control are gravy.

For the smart athlete someone else breaking the school record (or let's say someone crushing the WR a week before) changes NOTHING, because you are focused on WHAT IS UNDER ***YOUR*** CONTROL.

George, did these people even read the interview with Kipchoge's agent?


So running sub 2:03:05 is under Kipchoge’s control, yet 8 seconds faster isn’t under his control??
I don’t see anyone besides Kipchoge running a WR until Sunday.
You must be some kind of a thicko


SIGH. Clearly you just don't understand the simple concepts at play here.

Good luck with life, thicko!
