I feel much better after a good swim. More alive.
I usually listen to enigmatic music after training, like this one

It's lovely of course, beautiful. But what this is — is Gothic metal (this is what they call trash here. It is not to offend the music, it is just a term). It's a Dutch group, but everything is plagiarized from the British of course and they sing in English. It's a softer version of Nightwish I guess. It IS lovely.

Me too, I feel very calm after running — long distance running, feel like I can take on the world. Although — after the London marathon this year I felt well and truly effed for a few days.

The kind of music that I have my headphones glued into when running (and did when running the Marathon - this song really helped me through)

With running — the heartbeat goes so high, swimming is no match at all. But — I guess I should get into it, just to pace myself. I am not a teenager anymore, even though I feel like one most of the time.

Another complication re Brexit is Scotland. Scotland voted to stay in the EU, straight after the Referendum result here — Nicola Sturgeon (SNP Leader) started threatening with another Independence Referendum, but the Scots don't want another Referendum. In fact — Cons gained a lot of places there in the last election and the popularity of the SNP in Scotland has been declining since the last Referendum (all they - SNP - are capable of is constantly threatening with Referendums and that's it, no other promises to people have been fulfilled by them). So what they did then (SNP)was they passed a different bill of withdrawal from the EU for Scotland. Now The Scottish and UK governments are going head to head in the Supreme Court over Brexit and the role of Holyrood (this is where the Scottish Parliament is — in Holyrood). Because the UK Parliament believes that it is outside Scotland's remit to pass any kind of bill like this. There are 5 or 6 million people in Scotland. They have a great life (free University education, free elderly care, etc.) pretty much at the expense of England, which is the main part of the country to pull the money into the UK. 6 million people can't dictate to the rest 60 million.

An extract from the BBC to explain what this is all about.

What is this all about?
It will not have escaped anyone's notice that the Scottish and UK governments are completely at odds over Brexit.

The political standoff has now become a legal one, with arguments about Holyrood's Brexit bill to be heard in the Supreme Court.

It all started with a different bill — the EU Withdrawal Bill, the flagship piece of Brexit legislation passed at Westminster in June amid a flurry of crunch votes and angry speeches.

In broad terms, the Withdrawal Bill prepares the UK to leave the EU by copy and pasting all of the European laws the country is currently signed up to, and dumping them onto the domestic statute book so they can be repealed or replaced as the government sees fit.

What Scottish ministers dislike is how this process treats certain powers which are currently, technically, devolved — but which have always been exercised from Brussels, knitted into Europe-wide frameworks of rules and regulations on things like food standards and labelling.

Ministers in Whitehall want to integrate some of the powers into similar UK-wide frameworks, to ensure common rules and standards apply across the UK post-Brexit. But crucially, they want the final say over how these frameworks would operate, in the event of a disagreement between governments — something Scottish ministers see as a «power grab».

I find it interesting because some metal groups in Russia and their fans are called «говнари "

I came home late today, so I've decided to use my treadmill instead of swimming. Both running and swimming gives positive emotions to me, but these emotions are different.
I usually start swimming really casually, I like to imagine that I'm soaring when I glide in the water. But there is always somebody who wants to show he swims faster than me. I try to ignore such things but in the end I usually find myself competing with that person
Actually, I'm not very good at swimming, not even close to professionals swimmers. It takes me about 40 minutes to make 1 km. Probably, I can do it faster but I'll be exhausted. I'm thinking about hiring a coach, ten trainings will cost me about 240 pounds, but I see how hard other people work during that trainings. I'm not ready for it yet.

How do you think, what will happen if the deal will be broken? I think chances are low for that course of events, but who knows…

There are rumors another talented student Daria Panenkova will leave Eteri camp.
During this offseason many talented skaters left Eteri: Evgenia Medvedeva, Polina Tsurskaya, Anastasia Tarakanova. If the rumors are true, she will be fourth skater to do it.
https://www.sports.ru/figure-skating/1065504249....

I think it is mainly because of Eteri has enormous amount of students. Well-known top tier figure skating coaches usually have 5−6 students or less, Eteri coached 25−26 students during last season. I think many students in her group really lack her attention.

The second reason is her work ethics.



Some people say only 13−15 yo juniors who weigh less that 45 kilos can work that hard without injuring themselves. I don't think it is true, but Eteri has many rivals in figure skating world (like ЦСКА), who hire some journalists to portray her as a bad coach for everybody but «skinny lolies»

The actual term for «говнари » here is thrash metal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrash_metal Somehow, a softer metal some people here call trash instead of thrash. It's just — it's hard to explain, it doesn't mean people don't like it though - quite au contraire, mon ami.

You are doing so well with your training, well done, Me — on the contrary — cause of the heat I don't feel like doing any training or running at the moment. I am just resting. And more than that — this horrible heatwave is here to stay. They say it is some sort of jetstream cyclone thing

When will the UK heatwave end? Why is the UK weather much hotter this summer? What do the Met Office weather warnings mean?

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/when-will-uk-...

But — there is a charity running event that I am signed up to — it takes place in the beginning of August and I can't let people down. So I am off to the gym tomorrow during lunchtime — there's aircon there so it'll be allright.

What — with Scotland? Nothing will happen, the Court will put them down. As for the deal — the EU are cornering themselves, not us. You gotta understand, Britain is a small country in terms of territory, but not in terms of power, This is a very powerful country with a lot of powerful allies, etc. We will pull through, watch us. I am not being a vatnik here, just being objective.

Do you know — I weigh 56 kilos, and my height is 174 cm — I am very skinny myself — always has been, although I eat a lot — but my life is too hectic. Some people bullied me here over it when I was younger — calling me anorexic and that. But that's not the case — it's just the way my built is. By the way — my mom in law is very similar — she has always been thin. She told me that in her youth Diana Doors (she was quite plump — the watch she wore «sunk» in her wrist, etc) was the etalon of female beauty in England and she (my mom in law) was considered too thin at the time and not conforming to the standard enough, etc. But probably that is why I still can enjoy long distance running at my age, which is great — not too much pressure on the joints.

That coach of yours gets a lot of stick from her rivals it seems. Maybe that means she is doing something right? I don't know anything about figure skating. When you start going so deep into it — I really don't know how to comment, as don't know anything about it really.

During last two years her female students won every important international competition besides world championship 2018 (which wasn't that important because it was a post-Olympics event).

She is very talented coach, but her behaviour isn't always classy.

If you were a figure skater you'd be taller than anyone. As far as I know, the tallest figure skater (among top 100 skaters) is Maria Sotskova (173 cm). People usually speak about how incredibly tall she is. Zagitova is 161 cm, Medvedeva is 159 cm.
Actually, short people have a serious advantage in figure skating. Some people deny it, but it is a fact that slim and short people usually rotate faster, that gives them huge advantage

thanks, I was kinda unlucky a couple of months (some flu prevented me from trainings), so I'm trying to catch up now.

Some nasty fans, bloggers and journalists use it in their games. For example they say «this girl has anorexia», but if this girl changes her coach — she is fine, it's just her body type. I hate when people behave like that.

Well you know — she is doing a great job it seems as a coach. Sometimes it is hard to sustain good behaviour if one is relentlessly attacked with criticisms I guess — I don't know, when people compete they turn to animals sometimes. You know in the City — now things are better, but I remember the times when I worked for a brokerage house where men behaved appallingly, etc — but as long as they pulled the money in — it didn't matter. Things are a lot better these days.

Well, I am not a figure skater. In the UK people are quite tall and slender — men especially, my husband is 182 cm tall, my first husband was almost 190 tall. Lots of tall people, lots of tall girls as well. The younger the generation — the taller they seem.
Another thing is — when one starts a very intensive physical training programme at a very young age — that in itself curtails one's growth in terms of height. It happens to ballerinas as well. What I am trying to say is if one didn't start training in ballet at the age of 2.5 (like my daughter did for instance) — one probably would grow taller.

They should just be ignored — horrible people.

There is also a difference in mentality. I was playing handball for more than 6 years. My coach was a women, she was strict and she could use some rude words from time to time. If our opponents played like losers but we couldn't win despite that fact, she could say smth like «игра была равна, играли два говна». I never was offended by that. I knew she was worrying much about us, she wanted us to win. For me it was like a joke with some sadness in it.

In other sports Russian coachers also behave like that




Many english-speaking fans don't think it is appropirate.

Other than that Eteri is taking it very serious and personal when skaters leave her. She has changed after Evgenia left her though. Probably she got used to it somehow.

And Evgenia transfer to Orser wasn't really nice, she ghosted Eteri and Eteri revealed some information that could damage Evgenia reputation.

«Прямо выйдя с олимпийского льда там была совершенно детская такая фраза: «Неужели вы не могли удержать Загитову еще один год в юниорах?»
Я сказала: «Женя, ты что? Мы обязаны всем давать одинаковые шансы. Мы не имеем права так удерживать человека», — сказала Тутберидзе.

Actually, Eteri damaged her own reputiation more. She already had not so good reputation. Now among many foreign fans she is «mother of evil».
