(Fast Running) Drugs in Sport: Book Review: The Russian Affair by David Walsh
The Russian Affair0 BORDER=
This was published in late summer 2020 when the athletics writing world was semi-furloughed and to some extent was some years after the facts - as the pan-sport international ban on Russian athletes and teams was already well in place. Thankfully.

Arguably the headline behind that ban, amidst a hugely extensive and long term list of convictions, was the doping programme focused around the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014 - where the offences were so outlandish that even non-sporting people were captivated in reading of the level of misdemeanour. But The Russian Affair happens to be based around the heart of Russian women’s middle distance running, and from there it pans out into the wider world of Russian track and field athletics, Russian sport at large and, with sport being just one integral part of society, how Russia operates at a deep moral and behavioural level.

  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.
