The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Well, Lance has the Yellow Jersey once again for the 61st time in his career.

    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.

    That was a great finish today - it was the final furlongs of a horse race! Lance obviously had done his homework on that stage - he didn't put a foot wrong, even though he was surprised by Ulrich's surge earlier on.

    People wonder why I call myself Mr. T. One dude asked, 'does the T stand for tough?' I said no. Another dude asked if the T stands for my last name, Tureaud. No it does not. The 'T' in Mr. T stands for tuna. T loves tuna.

    TBone - so let me ask you something about the facts which you posted about Armstrong's anatomy.

    Do you think it's fair? I mean you said he is genetically gifted, so how is that fair that he is allowed to race normal humans?

    Hmm, interesting question Triple P. I don't think it's unfair for him to race against other people. Sure his genetics may be giving him an edge, but you can't take away from Lance the fact that he trains damn hard to compete. So, it would only be unfair if didn't train as hard as everyone else.

    Stage 14 - Lance let Basso win the stage. Its common for the overall leader to let riders win individual stages

    Stage 15 - Lance showed Basso and others that Stage 14 was a gift and took the stage win and the yellow jersey

    Stage 16 - Lance destroys Basso and destroys the pack with the only time under 40 minutes. He beats Jan by 61 seconds (sound familiar?) and overtakes Basso. Extends his lead to 3:48

    FYI, his ability to produce less lactic acid and his high VO2 max enables him to be the only rider who climbs using a high cadence and low gear - rode today at an avg speed of 14.5 MPH while going uphill. Props to Carmichael for helping him develop that style. Its one of the reasons why he will win 7 or 8 before its all said and done.

    Greg LeMond who? He was bitter before, but now?

    By the way, Stage 17 tomorrow is going to be fun
    A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.

    Greg LeMond is being an ass.

    Team US Postal and Lance were incredible today. Lance pulled off a stunning sprint. Too bad for Floyd Landis, Lance's teammate. He deserved the win today. He did an amazing job pacing Lance today. Landis was just too pooped at the end to get a good attack in. They only way Lance will not win the Tour is if he has to dropout from an injury. I hope he smokes everyone again in the final time trial.

    You gotta love it. I know it must bug the french everytime they have to hear our national anthem.

    Lance seems like a really decent guy, and i'm glad that he's won it again.

    Of course its fair that he's allowed to compete. Some people are born with the genetics to be naturally muscular, should we not allow them to compete in bodybuilding/sports?

    I challenge anyone who says cycling is easy to... Whatever. Thats just the same as saying that running is easy, its completely ret*rded. (retar'd is a swearword now?)

    I cycle quite a bit, its fun, its comparable to sports like running/sprinting, you just go faster.

    The guy had cancer and beat it. He has more then good genetics. He has amazing heart and to go through what he did and then stay on top is just out of this world.



    I personally think he is an alien.
