goals and plans Oct 01, 2020

You have decided to run a race and are aiming for a new personal best.  So you ask your friends what they have done for training.  Then, you check out google and see what that suggests.  You do the best you can to combine both pieces of information and plan out your next few months.  You end up missing some days, skipping some workouts, and adding in a few different things.  When you show up at the race, you are not entirely confident and as the gun fires, you take off questioning your preparation.  Why do generic plans not get the results you want?
