This triathlon is great news for Tony Abbott
With Tony Abbott on the bike part of the triathlon while I write, Insiders has pointed me to an article in The Age about the physical effects of extreme physical exertion.
Entrants can lose up to three kilograms in fluids, which could briefly derail their decision-making skills and ability to think clearly, she says.
As I wrote yesterday, Tony Abbott took part in this triathlon without doing the requisite physical training.
However, he does participate in extreme physical activity on a regular basis, and one is left wondering if his inability to focus and develop long-term reformist policy is due to his extreme physical activity – undertaken without adequate preparation.
