Thanks Don & Bullet

I read it again, but what exactly is it in technical terms. (I like to learn this stuff...makes me feel like I know what I'm talking about to other ppl ) It says: "This is very bad and can cause high levels of KR in the back half of the mile." Now that I know what "KR" stands for...what exactly is it? I know "retard" means to 'slow down' but what'* the knock part. Sorry if I sound naive

You're pulling our legs.

Seriously though...

I want to know it in technical terms. Instead of my "I'm pretty sure this is it" terms.
