Re: What is your average speed?

I think its fine to compare yourself to others as long as you're comparing yourself to the right people. As far as average speed goes, that's a different story. How far are we running today, 5k or 30k? What's the goal, endurance or tempo or speed? Are we racing? Hills? My average speed is anywhere b...

Re: Sad story

Carrie lost her **** with me a while back when she found out I'd been running all over New York City and Tokyo with no ID whatsoever. Something about being buried in the Japanese equivalent of a potters field. Anyway, I'm ordering a new Road ID. I think I left my old one attached to an old pair of s...

Re: Not another one...?

But we like Clara Hughes, she is inspirational and she is Canadian. That is the difference. I tend to agree. We loved Silken Laumann, too. And Ben Johnson for 9.79 seconds. Love to hear an explanation of the silent acceptance of the silent sanction. Odd passive acceptance. So what we need is a hier...

Re: Not another one...?

Well legally the difference is intent. So? I understand the legal difference. I understand the difference between murder and manslaughter. I don't know what that has to do with doping - particularly if you believe (which I do) that the athlete is responsible for everything that goes into their body...

Maybe a better alternative is to say its not necessary or desirable to prevent and detect every possible instance of cheating at every race.

And a lot of life is about counteracting our bodies responses when its not convenient for our lives.

Re: Today is Tuesday

Part of my running comeback is to be more defiant. Today it was "f*** you, thick cloud of smoke hanging over Calgary". I ended up with a decent 4-5k run, first time I've run two days in a row in forever. Plus I inadvertently drew a dick, so I've got that going for me.

Re: Canadian athlete disqualified at Ironman Canada

You start scouring her social media postings, I'll get the pitchforks.

ETA: as an aside, when I read this I got "Ironman Canada" and "Challenge Penticton" mixed up in my head and wondered why she was disqualified five days before the race.

We stopped doing depletion runs and carbo-loading, we stopped breaking records. We claim to know more than we used to, but we're actually running slower.
