Maybe I’m just being naïve about one of my sports heroes, Lance Armstrong. So many people are convinced that he used performance enhancing drugs to help him achieve his record breaking performance of winning the Tour de France seven times in a row and I’ve seen the expression if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck… Then there are the teammates who claim he used the drugs in their presence.
But the most drug tested athlete has always passed every test. The people accusing him are the teammates who were actually caught…using the same tests Lance passed…and in the same years they were busted and he was supposedly using the same drug. Their confessions only came some years after the initial findings and when they were convicted absolutely, during which time they swore they didn’t…statements they later retracted. You know, “I was lying then, but now I’m really, really telling the truth.” Yes…maybe I’m naïve, but I take the following approach.
Training Heart Rate: 120 bpm.
Calories burned during workout: 1100.
