bw = 144
soreness = calves (alot)


tried making some moves to get a dope home, but seller won't budge on their (way too high) price. they've been doing this for 5 years too, sucks. just a winter home for them so really nothing any1 can do, except throw big cash at them. and that's what they want. they know the appraisal will be considerably lower.. so they are just waiting for some rich equestrian folks to buy up the lot. :ffffffuuuuuu: :ffffffuuuuuu: :ffffffuuuuuu:

i'm so stubborn w/ home buying. only have two locations i like, and then only a few locations within those locations. reminds me of vert/running etc.. just so fixated on exactly what i want. but with this stuff, you need the $$.. eeeh.

frustrating :d



man i love my new knife.. this thing is crazy lethal. that grip on it puts you in serious attack mode.

eye almost 100%.. crazy how much damage was done (not emergency level, but still...)

should be back to normal tmw. painful to touch is basically gone. intermittent blurriness is almost gone.

don't get stung in the eye! imagine if it was a wasp/bee tho.. i could have been wrecked.



haven't run in 3 days, letting the eye heal.

aches/injuries = low back the last few days - odd.

will probably run sat/sun, pre/post tropical storm/hurricane.

pc!

my calves are always super tight for a couple of days after i ramp up running volume. static stretching a few times throughout the day (just one leg at a time on a step) seems to help a lot.

Yeah I've been doing that a lot. Also adarq's soleus couch stretch (lean your knee into the couch and hang out).

yea i remember you loved that one haha.

i used to do that while doing dishes, felt great. but, stretching usually wrecks me more than it helps, so i stopped stretching lol.

pc!



1kms today:

4m06s (RPE 9) - local  :personal-record:
~5mins rest
4m10s (RPE 9)
~5mins rest
500m jog, R calf dead again so not forcing anything.

10/leg SL sqs, 20/leg SLDLs, KOT calf raises, 3x7 box jumps approx 24''

Got my new Zoom Rival Waffles and they are great. Not sure if it was the new shoe speed boost effect or I'm finally getting a bit fitter, but ran good times today. Need to focus on this troublesome right calf. Nothing to gain at this point so taking it easy. Next time I might try and get in more volume at lower intensity given I "PRd" today.

nice!!

President Donald Trump on Tuesday complained that people like Dr. Anthony Fauci more than him.

And his critics were quick to point out why.

“He’s got this high approval rating, so why don’t I have a high approval rating with respect ― and the administration ― with respect to the virus?” Trump said at a news conference. “We should have it very high.”

Fauci is one of the nation’s leading infectious diseases experts and has been giving people the latest science-based information on the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Trump this week shared a video about the virus from a doctor who says she is also “exposing incubus and succubus.” The video was removed from social media for containing false information and supporting unproven treatments for COVID-19.

But Trump on Tuesday seemed puzzled as to why he’s not as well-regarded as Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, another member of the White House coronavirus task force.

“They’re highly thought of,” he said. “But nobody likes me. It can only be my personality, that’s all.”

Trump’s complaint caused #NobodyLikesMe to trend on Twitter:

yea that was crazy. trump is such a joke.

Fark! That sounds horrible.

i just realized.. my dog (james) is a natural dock jumper. he leaps in as far as the ball is, in the pool. to try and grab it.. even if it's like 5+ ft out, he gets it.

with a good run up, he could probably get some good distance! hah. no idea how he'd learn to do that tho. would need a coach :derp: ;)

the mile-pace intervals were pushing my right knee, which is a little out of sorts today. haven't been able to really sprint for many years now and i guess that's also true for a fast (for me) run. never been able to tell what exactly is wrong. i remember asking for suggestions on lyle mcdonald's mean forum* back in maybe 2014 and his response was, "OP should not sprint." couldn't see a good argument against that, there was no reason i HAD to be sprinting.

the discomfort comes and goes and never bothers me while jogging - it's something to do with the amplitude of the leg swing on sprints, or maybe the amount of knee flexion on the front end (peak knee lift is when it's most noticeable; second-most is peak flexion on the back end). anyway, i'd love to sort that out at some point, it sucks to think i wouldn't be able to test a mile or 800 because my knee wouldn't like it.

*RIP monkey island, i hadn't been on there in years but went to check on it a couple of months ago and it'd disappeared. there were some hilarious people on there.

you sprint/fast strides in your running shoes? and on what surface?

i'd be curious how you feel if you did some sprints/hard strides in very light shoes, on a futbol-like surface (low/thin grass/hard packed dirt) - soft, not asphalt/track etc. even though you mentioned more of the mechanics, i'd be curious how very light shoes (xc flats or spikes) feel (potentially making the mechanics easier/less stressful), and on a really comfortable surface (less stress per stride).

think it'd be the same?
