    Thanks, NDGAARONDI! For those that are interested, I've found out so far that Royal Holloway has American Football Club, and you can train/play if you join their Student Union, but for friendly games only (can't compete unless you belong to their Uni).

    like i said earlier the best pace for training dor long distances is the pace at which you can quite comfortably talk to someone. It may seem really slow but it really does build up your stamina very well. And although i don't know your physical condition then i think that 11 as you suggested should be around there.

    I should have looked at your location being in Surrey. I live in Middlesex so I just gave the first thing which sprang to mind. The University of London Union (ULU) used to have an American Football society but it wasn't at the stalls this year at the exhibition day. I guess either nobody was there to take people's interest or it has been dissolved.

    1/2 the distance shame. That is why I do the gym. The wind hurts my teeth and ears.

    Also the treadmill makes you go or you go flying

    Men's Moguls Final coming up at 4.30

    Moguls was quality! Thought Ronkainen was unlucky not to get gold, a great early run. Didnt think Begg Smith was any better but hard to tell as I only see it once every 4 years. Felt sorry for Bilodeau, 18 year old Canadian, I thought he had a great run all but the second landing but the judges seemed harsh. He had the best aerials by far but I guess that only counts for 25%

    There is a case for arguing that because sport comes with its own special set of circumstances i.e contact sport, the playing culture etc, that is not for the standard legal procedures of criminal law and that the internal governing bodies such as the clubs themselves and the FA deal with it themselves. However, I would certainly debate strongly that incidents such as that between Bowyer and Dyer should be subject to such procedures as punching your fellow player is clearly not part of the game (although that again is a matter for debate lol ). Michael Essien is another key offender - personally I don't think that the clubs sanctions are strict enough, but thats for Chelsea to decide. There is a very subtle difference between what can be construed as going for the ball and an intention to hurt someone. Any player can defend themselves by saying this, and thus its very difficult to prove and consequently bring about legal proceedings.
    I would argue that, where a player admits intention to injure (such as Roy Keane/Haaland etc) and where the activites are so outside the realm of professional sporting conduct (punch-ups, hitting someone etc) then there could be a case for criminal proceedings.

    As to Rooney, aggression, drive and thirst for the game almost certainly make him the player he is, but a lot of our great and successful players today and in the past do not possess his degree of aggression. I think the question is when he takes it too far, which he has on occasion.

    Wescott wins! Not the best race, Delarue just took out Font early on, farcical. Good riding from Wescott to overtake Zidek. It's great viewing but you have to rely on luck. Half the time someone takes you out or you have to avoid someone wiping out infront of you. It's almost best to be in last and then just comes through when 2nd and 3rd mess up. Im surprised there isnt more protests and disqualifications.

    Great action though

    im a runner so i kno my stuff.

    if your training for a 10k you need to work up to running more than that distance in your training at 1 time. that doesn't just mean going out and running 12k straight away. work up to this. start off by doing steady runs. then build in sum pace (e.g do a 10minute slow warm up then do 1minute at quite a fast speed with 2minutes slow jog recovery then do a minute fast again then 2mins recovery) things like this giv u a better pace and u eventually find ur long runs easier. don't do any sprinting as this is not needed. i never do anything below 200m but i only do 200m intervals when i am training in the summer for events such as 800m and 1500m but as i am in winter training now and all of my races don't go below 6k then the shortest intervals i do are about 2minutes, these are beggining to decrease as i am heading towards the bigger, more meaningfull races and need an injection of pace so as that i can keep up with the front runners.


    u don't necessarily need to have a sprint finish. i don't have 1 and still manage to win and beat people at the finish. all you need to do is run the sprint or "kick" out of people by running at a slightly faster pace throughout so that they can not burst past u at the end as they do not have enough energy.

    this is my mates account but i shall be back on if any1 wants any help or is interested in anything to do with athletics. hope ive helped.
