On this week’s episode we spoke with professional runner and coach Lindsay Flanagan about her personal best marathon that she ran by effort without external feedback.
Stick around after that great conversation for the latest in the World of Running including two Diamond League Track Meets.
What happens when you’re in a race and you have no external feedback? There are no clocks, GPS isn’t working, and you find yourself alone without a pace group? Can you run a PR by effort? Lindsay Flanagan has a great story of her phenomenal race in Paris 2022 where she ran a lifetime best of 2:26:54.
