Met both Jonathan Edwards (before the meet had started) and Colin Jackson (halfway through) at Crystal Palace the year before last.
The former signed the kids' programme without a word, looking like he'd rather be somewhere else, the latter was all chuckles, talkative and good humoured.

How many 1000s of signings and meets do you reckon these stars face a year.

Only a saint would get through them all with a smile!

Jessica Ennis stayed and signed every last autograph , she was trackside for a good half hour. Might have been different if she was competing though!

Paula's training model has always been high volume high intensity.

As long as she recovered it was great. She smashed 2002 & 2003 not because of 120 mile weeks but on account of the years of lesser volumes leading up to them.

The risk is, once this tactic doesn't work, it can easily become over training. And if one doesn't recognize this or refuses to acknowledge this fact, then a decline is inevitable.

There's been a decade of this.

 Never doping.

It's a difficult one this. In a sense, we are their 'customers' - if no one watched, they'd just be fast/strong people doing their thing in a park. So they do have some obligations, especially now they're professional. But there are limits, and I guess some of the people who disturb them would try the patience of a saint. I always feel that whatever job you do, if you take an interest in it and the people you meet through it, you'll have a far better time of it.
