Cavendish again …

Another win for Mark Cavendish last night, his third stage win for TdF 2009. All of the leading GC riders positions remain unchanged. Good to see Australian rider Mark Renshaw getting due plaudits for the job he is doing delivering Cavendish to perfect positions for the sprint finish. Cavendish said last night, “Mark Renshaw for me is the man of the day”.

For me, the day started with 2km (80 laps) in the pool and ended with a 6km run at 5:24 min/km pace.

Interested to see the story in the Sun today about the group of overweight English children who were participating in a study using pedometers. When organisers saw that one group of kids were recording many more steps than others, but not showing any greater weight loss benefits, investigation showed the kids were connecting the pedometers to the collars of their pet dogs! Lazy, but ingenious!

It’s always a favourite day of the month when I get the new Runner’s World. This months has a feature story on stretching and strengthening your knees, and a story on picking the healthiest chocolate. If that’s not an issue meant for me I don’t know what is. Also noted that the sage advice of young Em is featured again in the “What they are saying on the forum” feature. Second month in a row isn’t it Em?

    I’m impressed with how well Cavendish is getting on – there’s a little media coverage of it here in the UK, but it’s being drowned out by the cricket, football transfers, etc., which is a real pity.

    Like you say though, it really is a team effort – he’s really benefiting from the backup and support he’s getting for the Columbia riders.

    If the kids were REALLY clever they would have gone to their back yard and picked up the nearest centipede.
