Congrats to Run SMART client Tom Klimek and coach Vince Sherry for teaming up yet again on another PR. Tom finished 12th overall at the Reading Shiver 5k in 18:01. [Full results] This was a 23-second PR and if you look back at when he signed up for coaching in 2009 it’s 1.5 minutes faster than the 5k result he provided in his running profile!
We’ve come to know this as Vince’s trademark. You won’t see huge improvements overnight but you’ll continue to get faster year in and year out, slowly but surely. And to do that you have to be patient, take a long term approach and stay healthy. Vince is the master at this!
