No PG tips monkey.

Back to the plot. I was thinking again about the panorama programme. So this journo hires a professional tri coach, ups his training way beyond what he had done before and over a period of months both boosts his aerobic traing and also micro doses. He then assumes his gains are entirely due to the micro dosing.

Stop me if I'm missing something big this has the hard thinking and scientific method of a particulary stupid root vegetable.

By contrast Al sal looks far better researched.

The flaw in your assumption is that he was doing things consecutively. Actually he went balls to the wall for about 4 months prior to taking the drugs, having already been reasonably fit anyway. The idea that he was at peak fitness before embarking on the drugs.

So it wasnt like he was sitting like a couch potato and then said 'hey im gonna do drugs and train for the first time and see how fit I am at the end and then contribute all the gains to the drugs.'

Hope you never serve on a jury dean. You realise that in not all cases they have a videotape of the murderer confessing to it while outlining what weapon he used and how he used it.

Oh dear it just gets worse for Salazar.

So he's conducting his little androgel experiments due to testing a sabotage theory of it being rubbed in to his athletes by a competitor. Yet this article from 2006


suggests he had a completely different point of view.

"You can't help but laugh," Salazar said. "It's just preposterous on so many fronts. I guess anything's possible, but it just doesn't make sense. There's no way in the world."


Still this is the same guy who said you cant win without drugs except when Mo starts winning everything.

Poor old Salazar. He must hate the internet and its infinite memory.

Mo Farah - Asthmatic - Olympic Gold Medalist

Galen Rupp - Asthmatic - Olympic Silver Medalist

Chris Froome - Asthmatic - TdF winner

Luckily none of the events they are in depend heavily on the respiratory area of the body.

And funnily enough in all of these cases the fact they were asthmatic had to be coaxed out of them, funny that they've all been in the spotlight for years but never once mentioned their debilitating condition (Froome forgets to even mention it in his autobiography which is odd.)

This is one of my favourite threads in this place. Not necessarily for the right reasons, but it definitely entertains me.

It seems that British Athletics is as guilty as Salazar in terms of using tues to increase a performance. I mean, mo would probably be no better than that 'embarrassment' Andy Vernon on a drug free level playing field.

For me, Im still shocked at how British Athletics have managed to sidestep this whole disaster scot-free. Here's Salazar smuggling drugs into this country giving actual names of BA officials who have knowledge of his doing it, but do the British press bother to make an enquiry about it? Nah ...... do British Athletics think 'Hey maybe we should address why our officials were told of a plan to smuggle drugs into a Britiain for an American athlete?'

Nah .... 

I only hope the press are waiting to see what comes out of British Athletics 'report' next month, then drop the boom on them if there are any discrepencies or issues deliberately avoided.

Mo said he had only ever had one TUE after he collapsed last year? So presumably he has not got one for asthma?

He also said that Salazar assured him he never coached Slaney despite a myriad of newspaper reports and a court document which showed otherwise.

He also said he only found out about the whole scandal 3 or 4 days before it aired, yet his signature is on a return letter to the BBC regarding this scandal a full 2 weeks before it aired and we know for a fact he was notified a full month before air date.

So given that, Im not sure I'd entirely take what he says as gospel.

So your plan after 3 months of drifting along with knee problems and not doing much training is to .... drift along with knee problems and not do too much training. Well it might work. We'll see.

Here is my prediction of how this will play out.

February - Maintain fitness. Knee still a slight problem.

March - Knee still a bit of a problem so going to continue maintaining program, see how it goes.

April - Knee slightly better. Going to do a 20 mile run on Saturday even though the first Ive been is 10 miles in the last few months since I need to get prepared for the Lakeland 100.

May - Knee playing up again with increased training. Might take a week off, see how it goes.

June - Behind schedule on training, knee OK will try to push a bit more this month for training. But not too much as don't want to damage anything before race.

July - Taper time. Haven't done as much training as I would hope but the tapering will give my body a last minute chance to try and repair itself.

July 24th - Race day. 20 miles in, couldn't tolerate knee pain anymore, caught by sweeper, Im out.

You never know, you might prove me wrong ... but I doubt it. Have a look at Peronel's post. You seem completely unaware that these races are 'proper' races. You can't just play at them. This isn't even like walking around a flat park for 100 miles. This will be a constant up and down, push like hell run. Here is a quote from the Lakeland 100 site.

" The climb, descent, rugged terrain, darkness and tricky navigation generally ensure a 50-60% failure rate over the 100 mile course"

So more than half the people fail. And yet you're going to do it even though you've been the first person out in each of your 100 mile runs?

You know Im not saying this to be nasty. This is me shaking you, trying to make you see sense. You will fail in the Lakeland 100.

Posted by me back in January on this very thread. Quite the foresight I have.

On Sunday night Salazar promised to co-operate with Usada if it decides to question him, saying: “Absolutely, I’ve got nothing to hide.” However, when asked whether he would do so under oath, he said: “I don’t understand exactly what that means. I’d need to speak to my lawyer.” When told it would mean if he lied then he would be in trouble, Salazar repeated: “I would have to speak to my lawyer about that.”


LOL ...... good ol Salazar. He should have been a boxer with all his ducking and diving.
