Thanks! Yeah, as a former sprinter, I feel ya on that. Track is a very individual sport when it comes to your own personal bests, but when you put me side by side another person who is doing the same thing, I want to be alpha male. I get bitter when I lose and figure out ways to improve. That is one of the things I love about sport: you learn so much though overcoming adversity. One of the few cliches that I feel holds any kind of truth.
Got a similar thing, but I need competition with others, that's when I excel, I HATE losing at anything and I still haven't replaced the awesome training partner before I left Canada.
Good job on the PRs man, I'm definitely keeping an eye on this journal.
