Well, this week has certainly seen a controversial start to the Olympics, with the Chinese swimmer being accused of drug-taking by the Americans, and eight badminton players being disqualified! Until the middle of the week, the British media were complaining about our lack of medals, but we have won quite a few over the last couple of days, so everyone is happy now. The biggest hero in the UK right now is Bradley Wiggins the cyclist. About a week and a half ago, he became the first British rider ever to win the Tour de France, and on Wednesday, he won a gold medal in the time trials at the Olympics. I’ve actually been doing a lot of cycling recently, so I have enormous respect for professional riders. This week, I rode 30 km on Monday, 30 km on Tuesday, 50 km on Wednesday, and then 40 km last night with an American friend. My legs were killing me last night, so I can’t imagine how these professional riders are able to do such huge distances at ridiculous speeds day after day. On TV, it is difficult to see how fast they are going, but in the time trial, they are averaging something like 50 km/h. I would struggle to keep up with that in my van!

When I ride, I use an app called “Endomondo” on my iPhone to measure all the data. It uses GPS to measure speed, average speed, and distance, and it also calculates the number of calories used and how much water you need to drink. Because it uses GPS, it traces your route on a map so that you can see exactly where you went and what your speed was at each point. I also use a heart rate monitor that connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth, so I can see my average heart rate and my maximum heart rate. As you ride, the app “speaks” to tell you every time you finish a kilometre. It says something like “10 kilometres in 25 minutes. Lap time 2 minutes 20 seconds.” The “lap time” is the time of the last kilometre, so you can always tell whether your speed is falling or going up. Here is a screen shot of my iPhone at the end of yesterday’s ride.

Endomondo screenshot

You can set the app for whatever sport you are doing, so I can use it for running as well. I can listen to music on my headphones as I run, and then the app will butt in to tell me my split times as each kilometre passes. It’s a great training tool, because it forces you to keep pushing yourself. By the way, the slow average speed yesterday was because we had to climb a huge hill. At the moment, my average speed is usually about 26-27 km/h, so I’m working on getting that up to 30 km/h as soon as possible.

Anyway, here is some feedback on your comments.

I wonder how do the organisation allocate the tickets.

Men’s 100m run final, swimming races and men’s marathon race.
All of these need “the” because you are talking about specific events.

Before the Olympics have started, you heard about various kinds of problems.

While I was watching the ceremony, I thought to myself, “This is it!”
Nice sentence.

I prefer doing sports to watching them although I’m not good at any sports.
It doesn’t really fit here, but just to let you know that if you are not good at sports, you can say, “I’m not very sporty.”

I just watched the digest of it on the news.
I just watched the highlights of it on the news.

I heard a scientist on the radio this week describing how the latest technology involves altering the DNA of athletes to make them stronger. You can find out about it by googling “gene doping.” That is quite scary stuff, and it cannot be detected by drug tests.

That is an interesting expression. I hope you all noticed it.

Thank you for explaining about the tickets problems.
“the ticket problems” or “the problems with the tickets.”

So, finally I don’t understand why some events are included and the others are excluded. I have a feeling that it has a lot to do with money(Olympic sponsors).
Unfortunately, it is all about money. I don’t think any event should be included in the Olympics if the Olympics are not the highest level of achievement in that sport. The Olympics are just a bit of fun for soccer players and tennis players, so those sports should not be included.

I noticed I had made a mistake of your name.
I noticed that I spelled (AE) / spelt (BE) your name wrongly.

Ticket for the closing ceremony is £650!?
With a French full course dinner and a door-to-door pick up service!?
That’s ridiculous!!
Indeed.

Have a great weekend, and feel free to ask me if you have any questions about the feedback, or about anything that I didn’t correct.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback!
    It seems that there are many kinds of applications… I’m not really interested in mobile phones. I can’t catch up with the latest technology any more, so I might become the last person to buy a スマホ in the world…

    Just now I heard on TV that the Japanese team could not see that the Olympic Flame has been lighted at the opening ceremony!!
    Apparently, the usher(guide?) made a mistake and led the Japanese team after their entrance march to the “exit”!! All the Japanese team just followed the instruction, the exit doors were locked, and finally they ended up missing the highlight of the opening ceremony!! How could that happen!!

    > You can find out about it by googling “gene doping.” That is quite scary stuff, and it cannot be detected by drug tests.

    I didn’t know that it cannot be detected by drug tests, so I always wondered why athletes use drugs to win.
    Do you think athletes are really happy when they use drugs and win a gold medal? Do you think that their coaches demand them to take such drugs?

    I’m going to the fireworks display tomorrow.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!!

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback!
    >I’m not very sporty. “sporty” is new to me. Thank you.

    It’s great that the UK has won quite a few medals.

    “Endomondo” sure is a great tool! Newest technology make our life so convenient. Your record may not be as good as that of athletes’ who take part in the Olympics but it’s so good as middle-aged man, isn’t it? Maximum speed is almost 50km/h. That’s very fast for bicycle.自転車でそんな距離が出るんですね。知らなかった。 If I remember correctly, your bicycle is an expensive one, isn’t it? And 1hour and 47minutes bicycle ride and 39 kilometer distance. You have so much energy. Have you ever thinking about participating any amateur bicycle race? And it consumes 1370 kcal. It’s sure is a good exercise! If I workout as much as you do, I think I can lose weight.
    As for me, whenever I go somewhere, I ride bicycle as much as possible. I go to work by bicycle. The distance is 8.7 kilometers and it’s takes me about half an hour. Of course I go home by bicycle so I go 17.4 kilometers a day when I go to work. My coworkers were suprised when I said I go such a distance by bicycle. But it’s not suprising at all compared with your record. I wonder how much calory I consume when I go that distance by bicycle?

    Hi everyone,
    Have a lovely weekend!

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback!

    You seem to have been doing a good(or a lot more!) exercise. That’s amazing. I just use cell phone for basic purposes like calls or texting, so I might be left behind from people using those convenient applications.
    By the way, I learned new words from the screen shot. They are “Hydration” and “Heart rate.”
    Concerning “hydration”, you need to take 3.11 liters water,right? Anyway, you burned 1370 kcal!

    >The biggest hero in the UK right now is Bradley Wiggins the cyclist
    —If I remember correctly, is he a guy who rang the bell at the opening ceremony?

    >I think the best translation of 雰囲気 is probably “his aura.” We don’t use “atmosphere” to talk about people.

    —I didn’t know “atmosphere” is not used to talk about people, Thank you.

    >You can find out about it by googling “gene doping.”
    We are familiar with the use and effect of the steroid, but it is even more scary!
    I googled “gene doping” and here’s one of the articles from CNN I read about it.
    http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/02/19/genetic.doping/index.html?iref=allsearch

    >I noticed I had made a mistake of your name.
    I noticed that I spelled (AE) / spelt (BE) your name wrongly.
    —I made a mistake and in writing sentences, I made a mistake again! It’s embarrassing! I understood the sentence that you had corrected, but at least when I wrote it, it didn’t occur to me. I might have focused on Japanese phrase “間違える” too much. I’m not sure if this only happens to me, but there are some gaps between Japanese and English. I’m afraid I need to familiar with and to adjust to the differences between the two languages.
    By the way, I tried to think alternatives. Do these ones below make sense?
    1. I noticed I misspelled your name wrongly(or incorrectly).
    2. I noticed I made a mistake in spelling your name.
    3. I noticed I made a mistake with your name.

    Hi YU,
    Have fun the fireworks display!

    Hi Fumie,
    You bicycle 17.4 kilometers when you go to work!? Wow! I won’t do that, but it’s definitely good for your health. I admire you:)

    Hi everyone,
    My husband went to a three days and two nights trip by using “青春一八切符.” Going on a trip by using that ticket isn’t my cup of tea!
    Anyway, I’m going to “The Little World Museum of Man” with my friends this afternoon. It takes about an hour to get there, and this is the place to enjoy various kinds of cultures from foreign countries. It’s been a while since I last visited there with my sons when they were kids. This weekend they have fireworks and African Dream Circus. A Ghanan friend of my friend, who have been studying Japanese at the college at the moment, feels homesick a bit, so we decided to go there to cheer him up.
    Herehttp://www.littleworld.jp/’s the link of the site.

    Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your feedback!

    >I didn’t know him before he won the bronze medal, but… Hagino Kosuke!

    I had never heard of him before he won the bronze medal, but…
    or
    I didn’t know much about him before he won the bronze medal, but… (A-Z: know)

    The first one is what I wanted to say. I’ve been careful with the expression “Do you know…?” since I read your book, but I didn’t realize that it was also true for negative sentences when I was writing this. Thank you!

    “Gene doping” sounds very scary.(I didn’t know there was such a thing!) I wonder how far people can go in order to win medals… Or is this also about money?? I’ve heard that some countries give their medalists a lot more money(cash rewards) than Japan.

    I have some question about “the Olympics.” Taco wrote on the last entry;

    >I had known オリンピック was called the Olympics (plural), so it made sense to me when David said “Now that the Olympics have started”, here the Olympics is used in plural. But the second time when David said “the Olympics does not do much for me…”, this “the Olympics” is in singular. I don’t understand how to use them correctly.

    Anne answered the question as below;

    >As for the word “The Olympics”, this comes from “The Olympic games”, so it makes sense you write it as a plural. In the case of singular, I’m guessing that you take it as a whole. Did I get it right?

    I agree with Anne’s ideas, but I was looking forward to your feedback too. Actually, I thought “the Olympics” should always be plural before I read your sentences. Can it be both singular and plural depending on what you are talking about? Were you talking about London Olympics when you said, “To be honest, the Olympics does not do much for me”?

    By the way, the app “Endomondo” sounds very useful for people doing sports. You said, “I also use a heart rate monitor that connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth.” Does it mean you put something like cordless earphones on your heart?

    I was also surprised by your maximum speed. As you know, 30 km/h is the legal speed limit for small motorbikes(原付バイク) though it is ridiculously low for bikes. Bicycles don’t have to keep the speed limit(30 km/h), so you can go faster than those motorbikes on the road!(as long as you keep the speed limit for cars, of course 😉

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to your feedback.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Hi Anne,

    青春18きっぷ isn’t your taste?
    I kind of understand… 🙂
    I went to Sendai and Fukushima from Tokyo with my best friend by using the ticket when I was around 20.
    I don’t think I can enjoy the same type of trip now, but at that time my friend and I had a lot of fun on the “inconvenient” trip !!

    >And I felt scared to see that she waves her hand to the audience with smile unconcernedly.
    And I felt scared to see her waving to the crowd as if nothing was wrong. (A-Z: with)

    “as if nothing was wrong” is just what I wanted to say. Thank you! I always think why I couldn’t think of more simple and natural English..
    And this time I couldn’t decide which words to use “waves” and “waving” for someone of the picture, but I’ve got the right answer. Thank you again.

    >When I ride, I use an app called “Endomondo” on my iPhone to measure all the data

    I’m really surprised to know the application of phone is progressing so remarkably!
    I used to do running with my husband before I gave birth to my son and I’m thinking of doing it again.So I’m very interested in the app now.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    That happenes to me too. I sometimes pay much attention to Japanese and my translation become awkward.

    I’v enever heard of 青春一八切符。I thought the price is reasonable if we use it wisely.

    The Little World Museum of Man” seems nice place to learn cultures of foreign countries. I’ve never been there. I want to visit there with my children someday. Thank you for telling me about that.

    Bye for now.

    Hi David,
    Thanks for your feedback.
    >… since I heard that Danny Boyle would be directing it.
    or
    … since I heard that Danny Boyle was going to direct it.
    Mmm, it’s still hard to use the past perfect.

    Hi YU,

    > Do you think athletes are really happy when they use drugs and win a gold medal? Do you think that their coaches demand them to take such drugs?

    No, I don’t think so. So I always wonder why some athletes use drugs. When I heard the Chinese swimmer was accused of drug-taking, I remembered Kristin Otto. She won six gold medals at Seoul Olympics. Her coaches and doctors were found guilty by using drugs several years later, but she stated that she was not aware that she was being doped. I wasn’t sure that she was telling a truth, but some athletes might have being doped without knowing.
    By the way, how’s the fireworks display? Hope you had a good time.

    Hi Anne,

    >1. I noticed I misspelled your name wrongly(or incorrectly).

    I think that “misspell” implies “wrongly” so you don’t need to add wrongly in your sentence.

    Hi everyone,

    How’s your weekend?
    I went to shopping with my sister and we bought some antiques. We spent much money than our budget though, we were happy:)

    Bye for now,
    amo



  10. YU on Monday August 6th, 2012 at 09:55 AM

    Hi amo,

    I think that being commended at the victory ceremony is one of the supreme moments for medalists. In the past, lots of medalists were unable to relish the honor due to the doped athletes. Imagine, you finished in the 4th place, but after the Oympics it was found out that one of the medalists used drugs. And you won the bronze medal as a result of the death of the doped athlete. In that case, you are a medalist anyway, but I think your joy of winning a medal is reduced by half or even much less….

    Do you remember that at the last(?) Olympics Murofushi first won the silver medal, but became the gold medalist later, because the gold medalist refused to take the doping test? I think winning “a gold” and “a silver” are very different for athletes. Murofushi never complained about that, I admire him very much.

    I wonder why IOC always tests after the races/games, not before them. Because doping tests cost much?
    However, I wonder if the current doping tests really have meaning after drugs like “gene doping” appeared…
    Anyway, if I were an athelete, I would not be happy winning a medal by using drugs. So, I really wonder why some coaches use them. Is it because they might have to resign if the athlete lost in the race/game? If so, it’s very regrettable, as they(coaches)also must have been top athletes before.

    By the way, we finally didn’t go to the fire display, as it rained that afternoon.

    Hi amo,

    >I think that “misspell” implies “wrongly” so you don’t need to add wrongly in your sentence.
    —Oh, I see. Thank you.

    You seem to have had a great time with your sister. Good for both of you! By the way, can I ask if you don’t mind? what kinds of antiques did you buy?

    Hi YU and Fumie,

    >I kind of understand…
    –Haha! When I was in college, of course,I did such types of trips with backpack, not now…
    Fumie, ticket costs 2,300 each and there are 5 sheets. It’s definitely cheap and was originaly for young people, but everyone are able to buy them.

    > Do you think athletes are really happy when they use drugs and win a gold medal? Do you think that their coaches demand them to take such drugs?

    —-I don’t think so, but I also think these kinds of horrible things could happen. You saw a lot of athletes that had used steriod to be stronger or to have better results,right? I guess people would not notice or care about its danger when they are involed in that chaos.
