Tom Jones’ AFL Grand Final rugby ‘blunder’

tom-jones-afl-grand-final-2014So, 74 year old Tom has accidentally referred to the AFL players as ‘rugby players’. Big deal, you so-called journalists refer to players of every code as ‘footballers’.

Is this faux pas really in any way comparable to the off-key, out-of-synch wailing from Meat Loaf last year? For the sake of mediocre copy I guess it is but it’s not unusual for you grammatically and literary challenged gob-shites to over-exaggerate and over-influence a ‘story’ with your own agenda.

Shame on you.

 

The one exercise that might change your running forever

I can’t remember where I first read this but forgot to post it straight away…

“I was leafing through the back of an out-of-print book, a collection of runners’ biographies called ‘The Five Kings of Distance,’ when I came across a three-page essay from 1908 titled ‘W. G. George’s Own Account From the 100-Up Exercise,’” he writes. “According to legend, this single drill turned a 16 year old with almost no running experience into the foremost racer of his day.”

W-G-George“Walter Goodall George’s earliest sporting interests were rugby and cycling, but he went on to win over 1,000 amateur prizes and races and set long-standing records as a professional runner. “He became unbeatable over the middle distances in an era before training became scientific,” the Oxford Dictionary Of National Biography writes, all while pioneering his own personal brand of “scientific” training, namely the 100-Up”
