2x Slower. (PR vs. WR) (Read 182 times)


CT JEFF

    Recently I tried to explain despite all my training where I fit in to some non-runners.

    I came up with "some runners are so much faster than me, it would take me over 2x as long to complete the same race".

     

    GOAL in 2014 PR under 2x WR

    rather be sprinting

      My mile PR is exactly the same as the American men's indoor record racewalking mile (5:38). If only I had had one foot at the ground at all times.

      And my dad, whose mile PR is 7:23, set out with the goal of running twice as slowly as Roger Bannister.... aka a sub-8:00 mile.  He called it the 'double Bannister.'

       

      I think your goals are very worthy! Big grin

      PRs: 5k 19:25, mile 5:38, HM 1:30:56

        THAT's good  :-)

          I've also thought in these terms. And then there are sports where a goal would be a PR = 1/2 WR.

          The WR for bench press is > 1000lbs (or 722lbs depending on the rules).  Let's just say my PR is a lot closer to 1/4 WR than 1/2 WR.

            Awesome! Ok

             

            GOAL=PR<WR/2

                Awesome! Ok

                 

                GOAL=PR<WR/2

                 

                Your formula is wrong. It should be PR<WRx2 or PR/2<WR

                  i thank you. (4:05)/2<(2:03).   Correct.
