The Perfect Mile: Three Athletes, One Goal, and Less than 4 Minutes to Achieve It – Neal Bascomb

Share of the Week:
This was shared by my trainer Chris Gaines, the founder of PerformanceGaines. Over my time there (since 2018), Chris and I have had this conversation about my “why”. One year, I came to him with a page long list of expectations for all of my training and benchmarks. But why do I really, for example, need to be running a 20 minute 5K year-round? Before I used to take on any and every goal that could possibly be set, with no rhyme or reason other than seeing other people do it. Now I’m a little more particular in why I train.
Share of the Week #2:
With all of the controversy over censorship on social media platforms or blogging services (Medium, Substack, etc.), it’s interesting to read about BitClout, a crypto social network where you can buy/sell creator coins, and Mirror, a decentralized blogging platform. I’m seeing that 1 @elonmusk creator coin currently costs $51,494. This stuff is mind blowing to me.
