I work with two and live in Kentucky. They won't shut up about wins.

You are trying to logically dismiss something with no conclusive evidence against it? Seems illogical to me.

The origin of orcs is actually up for debate. Read your middle earth history

I can't believe he is leaving. :(
|5 days 10 hours ago||Upvote for posbang. The||
Upvote for posbang. The following is not personal. There is a lot of bad running information out there and it really bothers me.
Also, my doing triathlons has nothing to do with my opinion of this plan. I approach each aspect of triathlon individually and train for them as individual events.
This plan is good for getting off the couch and being able to finish and nothing more. The only reason non-serious runners get faster with this plan is that it has 5 days with workouts.
Intermiediate and begining (and most advanced) runners have little to no use for hard intervals (speed work), much less doing them every other week. Speed work is the icing on the cake and they don't have the cake yet. The manner of running the intervals is pretty bogus too.
Additionally the long run is way too long. It should be in the 30-35% of weekly miles range. An intermiedate runner should be topping out well over thirty miles per week (closer to 40 than 35) for a 12 week half marathon training period.
I hope you do well at your upcoming race and meet all your goals. I'm 10 days out from Boston myself looking to crush my PR in both the half and full. (I don't like stand alone half/full marathons so I don't have a lot to compare to).

Outside of the running 5+ days a week, there is very little substance in this plan.
|6 days 10 hours ago||For me the "I'm so glad||
For me the "I'm so glad Michigan doesn't do that" thing is more because it is keeping within the rules than anything. Of course, if they aren't going to enforce the rules then why aren't we doing doing it better?
|6 days 10 hours ago||I don't think the end||
I don't think the end of second point is a good argument. No matter how many chemical (I'm talking about everything under the sun here, food, water, EPO) we pump into athletes, we are ultimately rewards those who respond to training the best under the conditions provided. LA and the others were certainly cheating and had an advantage because of the rules of the sport, but a being a doper does not make someone the best (see Jan Ulrich, ok there was that one year but LA wasn't in that one)
If every athlete were clean and all only able to consume the same number of calories, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, etc. each day. The one who was most efficient at using that allotment would win.
|6 days 10 hours ago||To be clear, I am in favor of||
To be clear, I am in favor of use of chemicals (for lack of a better term) to improve performace so long as it does not cause harm to the rider. An example of this would be caffiene. If something were to be developed which allowed physical gains without negative long term effects I don't see any harm there.
Additionally, I mean that in cycling everyone is doping for the same goal (more endurance) rather than everyone doping makes everyone equal. In other team sports where each position requires a different skillset each player would not be doping with the same goal in mind.
I hope this provided some clarity rather than muddling thing more.

I'm not sure this is good for my marriage.

I cycled outside all winter because I hate the trainer so much and I need to get to work. I suppose this is the one good thing about Kentucky
|6 days 11 hours ago||Cycling certainly has the||
Cycling certainly has the harshest penalties and is cleaner, but it will take quite a bit for me consider it a clean sport.
I don't think that doping in cycling gives the same kind of advantage as it does in other sports, because if everyone were doping they would all have the same benfits. If the doping they are doing does not cause permanate bodily damage (I don't know if it does), I'm not really against it in this case.
It is hard to see how in a sport with such wide spread doping anyone can win consistantly at a high level without doping though.

I hope they aren't either, but I don't live in the majikal dreamworld where a clean cyclist can win.

I always like Vince because he went to my high school and we rarely had any talented players let alone Michigan talent.
I tried to steal his halloween candy when I was in high school and he was in 6th grade. I failed. I wasn't a very big freshman high schooler.
Years later I ran into him in West Quad and we had a nice chat about how spring football was going...

It depends on the level. Half the teams in the mlb have the luxury of being able to pick the best pitchers knowing that they they can cover any hitting deficiency with the dh.
