The East Europeans had an interesting approach to gender equality in the '80s didn't they.  Get the female athletes' testosterone levels up to that of the fellas, and smash some world records.  Seems fair!  

To be fair when they started using the urinals, that really should have been the first clue that something was amiss in the womens section.

Another consideration is that the general public have memories like goldfishes and will vote for the most recent thing...Hamilton.

Exactamon my learned friend. If you want proof as to how quick the goldfish effect can occur, why do you think people call the first slot on the X Factor the death slot. Cause even an hour later people are like 'Uhh, yeah cant remember how good that first guy was now'.

Hamilton is a shoo in. Paveys achievement does have to be tempered with the fact it wasnt a world event. I remember as a kid going mad over Dean Lukin winning a gold medal for Australia in the 1984 Olympics in the Heavyweight division. It wasnt until I was much older I realised that in that particular event if you have a boycott by all the communist Eastern European countries, your chances increase exponentially, and that realistically he wouldn't have even medalled had the boycott not happened.

Women drivers arent as fast and women golfers can hit the ball as hard as men. So why should they be paid the same? Thats like saying Sunday League footballers should get paid the same as those in the Premier League. Personally I think its outrageous that womens tennis players get paid the same prize money as men when they do 3/5th of the work that men do.

I wish they would drop the 'personality' bit from it. What has personality got to do with it? Take Lewis Hamilton. He's very good at what he does, but the word personality doesn't instantly spring to mind. Gareth Bale? The lemon sitting on my kitchen counter has more personality.

Also you realise Charlotte Dujardin was named Sunday Times and Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Year, which is great because if there is one section of society that is constantly forgotten its the rich girls on their horses.

is flat running much faster ?

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 02:48

Have you never wondered why courses that have lots of hills tend to not have runners finishing as fast those that are completely flat?

I mean not being funny, but this isnt a running question, its actually just about common sense.


Pain in the chest...

Given the time of year its probably unlikely, but I suffer from hayfever quite badly, and would be out for pretty much all of July into August from it. The thing is often I would get a really bad chesty cough, but even for a few weeks after the hayfever had gone, and I was feeling fine, if I went for a run that stubborn last chesty cough stuff (without getting graphic) would still be there.

Its a long shot given hayfever season has gone but just throwing it out there as its the only similar situation I have had.


Running a Marathon for the first time

Posted: 21/10/2014 at 08:27

If you managed to run the whole way last time,  you'll be able to run/walk the marathon. Lets face it, 90% of any given marathon field are probably going to walk at some point, its just that  you may need to do it a little more than others. Anyone who can do a half marathon has at least the basic level of fitness needed to complete a marathon. And this isn't me trying to give you a pep talk. I am 100% confident you can get round the course, simply as a matter of fact.

What was on it?

It was asking about the thread that kk had posted on that got deleted.

You know, the usual going on's around here.

It was also posted in the clubhouse section, which not being funny but should have a higher tolerance in terms of garbage posted since its not polluting the other sections so people can still ask 'I just broke my leg, will I be ok to run a marathon next sunday?' in the beginners forum as much as they like.
