Most of it is sort of unpersuasive blather. If you skip all the posts by muscleheads and stick pretty much entirely with what I wrote on the subject, you will get a very intelligent and balanced overview.
PS At the risk of seeming just a wee bit paranoid, I wonder if the Ph.D. candidate who arranged to skew the poll results for his thesis might also be the one who has been giving my vlog 1 * ratings, most likely for yet another nefarious experiment on corrosion of the human psyche.
Time to begin perusing the aberrant psychiatric literature with a bit more of an eye towards clue identification.
Tonight was probably my best practice performance in recent memory:
800 on 11:00 warm up
200 kick on 4:00 "
10 x 100 on 1:20
5 x 100 on 1:15
8 x 100 on 1:20
4 x 100 on 1:10
1 x 100 cool down
I drafted off my superiors but made everything with the possible exception of the 3rd 100 on 1:10.
