False Prophets bearing gifts


I received the following via email this morning.

Olympic Medalist Reveals Her Secret “Cheat” for Winning the Marathon Advanced (but perfectly legal) “hydration therapy” helps athletes increase stamina and endurance up to 28.7% Now you can drink the same refreshing, energy-boosting sports drinks they do when you work out or compete for the next 60 days — FREE!

This is the kind of pseudo science crap that confuses people. I know Deena Drossin’s coach, Dr Joe Vigil. He is an exercise physiologist. He had her as prepared as any athlete could be for that type of competition. Hydration was big factor, but a 28% boost – get real. Deena Drossin put in eight years and 40,000 miles of running to get that medal. There is no magic formula or secret method. It is systematic directed work that is individualized to meet the needs of the athlete and their event.
