  • Never heard of them and having rummaged around their websites and social media it doesn't look good, both their FB pages have disappeared and their twitter hasn't updated since November. I would have thought the ticket site ought to assist you under…
  • Sorry to hear about the afib, I too have had some very serious heart problems and got back to racing. My SCA (VF) occurred at the end of a 4k (sic) race. I won't try to persuade you to change your mind about the advice but it would be interesting th…
  • The training for the two events needn't be that different, depends what sort of quality work you have been doing. You can keep all the mileage and long runs going and drop the length of intervals/tempo sessions to build a bit more speed. Why do you …
  • My best recent 10k is 41.26 but my training looks nothing like that. I'd say you need more focus on steady runs and slow down, and don't try to do flat out runs like that. Also for races don't go off at an unsustainable pace, if your km reps are onl…
  • Good luck to anyone doing GSR today, bit foggy and chilly first thing but hopefully it will warm up a bit soon! I missed the closing data so just watching on tv
  • RY's sponsor SKINS have accepted the conclusions of the report and terminated their relationship:   "The conclusion reached by Roger and Ross is one I accept. However, it’s also the case that Rob continues to vigorously defend himself. He main…
  • Official Tucker report out!   http://www.letsrun.com/news/2016/10/robert-young-inspiration-fraud/   https://cdn.letsrun.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Robert-Young-Skins-Report-Cheat.pdf    
  • The report of the investigation by Ross Tucker at Science of Sport is due to be published at 9am Sydney time which should be 11pm tonight. See the Tucker and SKINS sponsor websites. The press have had it for a couple of days under embargo as the own…
  • He has uploaded a ton of data to Strava now if anyone wants to peruse...   https://www.strava.com/activities/617303559/overview   is a particularly impressive session.
  • He was running with a TomTom Runner 2 Cardio (or a pair of them) which records cadence as well as HR so it would be a fair bit of work to fake it but not impossible, and more likely the longer we wait to see it. Top cyclists upload rides from the co…
  • Having spent years struggling with symptoms like that I would get a second opinion on the heart definitely. I did and proved that the negative test results they had given me before were wrong. Problem is that sometimes it is hard to tell apart ref…
  • WADA pre-announce list additions each September to take effect from the following January. All sportsmen and women should be checking that list including looking at alternative names for each of their drugs. This is the same drug that Aregawi and so…

  • A good Polar strap propertly wetted under the cold water tap works fine straight out the door. The only time I get problems are if its very cold and windy and it dries out or I bend down (say to tie shoelaces, so always put trainers on first). Don't…
  • Looks like the high pressure will just about hang on for us - just hope we don't get the early morning fog like wot I can see out my window now
  • If anything your race/training differential is quite small. Do most of your training at a pace where you could/can hold a conversation. In the race you should be breathing very hard, just on the edge of blowing up.
  • Most likely the stress of the earlier events you mention. Glad to hear you dad is ok.
  • Stephen, that's true but that's for the HM runners. Like Carole I'm doing the 10k and she has it covered. Watch those extra hills if you're in the HM though.

  • DM reporting upgrade for Jo Pavey! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-3195258/Jo-Pavey-set-given-bronze-10-000m-2007-World-Championships-silver-medallist-Elvan-Abeylegesse-athletes-charged-doping-offences.html      
  • yellow52 wrote (see) I think they need to be careful in naming individuals, because all this is based on probabilities rather than hard and fast pass/fail tests. To say that someone's data is 'abnormal' you need to know what 'normal' is, and th…

  • No word on the subject on Laura Weightman's twitter account either so far. This should make for some interesting chat from the commentary team in Beijing - wonder what advice Steve Cram is giving her, although its up to her of course.
  • The female GB athlete on the red list whose test value only has a 1/1000 chance of being natural and who threatened to sue the Sunday Times if they named her.   http://i.imgur.com/Tan791o.png (allegedly a redacted version of her entry).
  • Now that people like Mo and Jo have put their data online its going to be fascinating to see who doesn't follow suit. Presumably the non-publishing will be led by she who can't be named but that will be a tad embarrassing when the Beijing BBC commen…
  • Spooky - I've just been up there too !! I only passed one runner, she was coming under the underpass as I returned - was that you?. Overtook one poor MTBer on the steep bit - I'm convinced he got off after I went by. First time I've run up and st…
  • Sorry to hear you ended up on bbs, I refused to go on them and they gave me Procoralan instead (not sure if they would work with your prob). This would be a good question to ask on the cardiacathletes forum. I vaguely recall some people took half a …
  • I know you are keen to try your heart out but I'd concentrate on running by feel. I had different heart probs and went through an official cardiac rehab program supervised by nurses, they did a formula calculation (I think they used the Karvonen one…
  • It's a bit light all around to be honest. Especially the track which is too slow and too low volume. I ran under 33.00 and we were doing 4-5x1M in about 4.55 in winter with a lap jog rec. But mile reps can be tough mentally if you try doing them sol…
  • Fascinating ffb. I've been over 16,000 ft during the day in the Peruvian Andes and that was ok but one night I had to sleep at 12,000 ft and I could barely breath and didn't sleep a wink.
