So in the papers we have Linford Christie [who has tested positive for drugs] saying there needs to be a purge at the IAAF, Lord Coe saying it might be well beyond his time in office before things get ‘sorted’, Mike Powell saying he’ll ‘slap’ anyone that tries to erase his long-jump world record, etc, etc.
Does this proposed ‘year zero’ for records suggested by UKA chairman Ed Warner mean that Roger Bannister will no longer be recognised as the first 4 minute miler? Where do you redraw the line in the sand?
Today just a little 2 mile jog after work as the last recovery day of this week and from tomorrow the starter of the next block of training. Dreading getting on those scales again tomorrow!
