Here is an article I found interesting about competing with yourself.  I find this to be particularly true with performances that occur in the heat of a competition.  Let’s say someone hits a 5kg PR during a competition and then can’t make it again for months.  This person will usually be frustrated they can’t hit that number again or feel like they’re not making progress.  That one performance with the assistance of adrenalin is not a good reference to the progress this person is or is not making.  It’s an outlier, not their average ability.
