For anybody relying on public transport Saturday events are a godsend. It's also nice to have some weekend left after running. But I can fully understand why organisationally Sunday's are often more practical
I have a friend that was an olmpic standard cyclist in the 80's and his view is the EPO could turn a donkey in to a racehorse and claoms to have witnessed as much.
Biarne Ris is the obvious example, went from non-entity to TDF winner and gained the nickname Mr 60%. See also all of the Gewiss team that embaraced EPO sooner than most and were dominant for an 18 month period. Berzin won the giro but was nowhere when the rest of the peloton used the same gear.
Not posted on this thread for an age. But things are moving steadily in the right way for me. Did the Dirt Half at Leighton Buzzard yesterday and Stevenage half yesterday, Plan for both was steady 10 minutes miles, Stevenage saw me do 2.09 on a fairly undulating course and yesterday 2.11 which considering the hill and mud I'm well happy with. Managed negative splits in both for the first time in a long time.
Next stop Portsmouth coastal marathon when I will hopefully beat this ridiculous mental block on stepping up from half to full
