Re: Therese Johaug doped

Sundby used legal asthma medicine and is well known for his asthma so that's aboveboard, it was just a failure to apply for that and its 'evaporator' -inhalator or whatever the dispenser is called. He lost a whole World Cup AND Tour de Ski so I wouldn't say that was getting off lightly. On the contr...

Re: Got a boat

Did you hear this one: "What are the 2 happiest days in boat-owner's life? The day he buys the boat, and the day he sells it" :D I've heard this but don't want to think about it.. :lol: Had a nasty end of the season as I come to find water in the cabin, carpets floating around.- :shock: J...

Re: Therese Johaug doped

Sentencing is generally mild here and works quite well, and it seems crazy that Breivik only got a 21 years custodial sentence, but 21 years is max here. However, it's still an old European country with the 'old boys system' at its core, so there's no doubt he will be held in custody indefinitely, e...

Re: Therese Johaug doped

It is, but her excuse is exactly the same kind as the real dopers use so can't really be different. Studies show good looking people get off more lightly in the legal system, and Johaug is such a merited athlete too, but nothing swayed them this time and I applaud them for it. It shows it's not just...

Cold winter this time?

Got the first snowfall in the mountains now. Very early.

In the old days, it was the odd warm year. Now it seems to be the odd cold one. Hopeful this will be one.

Anybody know the trends? El Nino, Nina or whatever it is rules this nowadays?

I agree but still find it to be the correct punishment.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Another World Cup skier with medal chances at the Olympics, Didrik Tonseth (Norway), had a nasty spill in Italy now . Concussion and scrapes. Going 50 kph downhill and a gravel road side road had spilled gravel onto the main which stopped Didrik's wheel. He said he was lucky and could have been much...

Re: How's the season going?

Got going regular rollerskiing again now that my boat is parked for the winter, but of course now there's wet leaves. I thought today would be the first outing free of a dog incident, but then one had to bark at me at the end.. :x Another thing I've been considering lately is the sheer noise of the ...

Re: Bad weather?

Very wet but surprisingly no major incident. The pundits said the newer wheels are miles from what they were just 6-7 years ago which is very encouraging. They also tip Halfvarsson to do well this winter, even though early summer form is not always a good sign. But Sweden was good to find form last ...

Re: How's the season going?

On the question of my yoga routine -- I've been doing it for years and have a routine of many different poses that I go between. I don't hold positions for longer than 3 breathes and it is more about moving my body into different positions than holding some stretch for a long period of time. I make...

Re: How's the season going?

Nice training routine. Wish I could do something similar too although not every day of the week. Been thinking about yoga as it happens. Can you tell a little about it? Do you work up a sweat or is it mostly 'stretching' exercises?
