well, did the slow part but not the long part. decided that it was foolish to randomly jack up distance that much. so this was better than nothing but not great. left ITB bugging a little now. and left shin was announcing itself during the run, not even to the level of mild discomfort but just there. to be monitored. can't wait for my parents to come with my new shoes.

24-hour headache from wednesday evening to thursday evening. never severe enough to be a migraine but included some nausea yesterday late morning to late afternoon. took two separate naps yesterday and slept for nine hours overnight. plan is to make up for the lost days today with a very long (for me), very slow run. we're talking 16km. then tempo tomorrow will be practicing 3:55 pace for 1k's.

wow, 14:15 is very, very quick. projects to 15:50 or so over the full distance.

- run 8.25 km in 41:07
4:59 pace, slightly too fast, but first 5 km were on the track and it's just easier there.

- push up x 20

- hollow body hold x 20s

- pull up x 8

calves tight, especially right. must do some SMR and extra gentle stretching.

wow, that is a BIG jump for you in mileage, no? no wonder your body freaked out. dehydrated and probably super depleted.

- run 12.38 km in 1:08:36
nice and easy, 5:32 average pace

looking ahead i've got a bunch of travel next month, which will disrupt training. might try to take one more heavy week, a taper/rest week, and then do a 5k time trial in two weeks. i'm not as fit as i'd like to be, training has been inconsistent and not as high-volume as it should over the last few months. but i'm likely to lose fitness in may anyway, so might as well see where i'm at.

It is so stressful to live in a family where you are the eldest and because of my dad's situation I am in charge and I have a younger sibling in his teens 15, who likes to annoy me and do what he likes and when you have to discipline him, it makes him angry and he starts threatening you with a knife. And the whole family trying to calm him down and he just comes towards me with the knife but I controlled it away from him and he just angry and thinks he is the victim. So much stress and I avoid saying I am not stressed unless it get's this bad. But my sister pacifies him with reward in return.
Too much stress for me to handle. How do you handle with such problematic siblings.

that sucks man. my brother, the one who died last year, threatened to kill our dad at least once. had to physically restrain him. it was scary. no way to give any advice, really, not knowing you or your family. except, it might help to be honest with him, in a calm moment, about the stress that you feel. i'm sure he's stressed out, too, and he's showing it in a violent and shitty way. but maybe it comes from a place of genuine distress and it'd help to understand that he's not alone in it.

hope your brother calms down and grows into himself. good luck.

- warm up 2 km, 500m on/off [1:59,1:50,1:34,1:52], cool down 1.4 km
all on road so the first intervals was entirely uphill, third entirely downhill. ran with gf so warm up and cool down were slower than usual, but that's okay. felt good, no issue with posterior left knee.

Do you see the problem with that though? In a clinical setting i'm not going to exhibit any symptoms. You telling me if James Harden walked into his primary care physician office and said yo i need treatment he'd get it? Doc will take one look at you and say you're in good shape and healthy and you should get going.

you serious? how do you think doctors diagnose asthma? guessing?

also, the eye doctor example some anti-vaxxer logic. went to eye doctor, eyes changed from time to time per administered tests, stopped going to doctor, eyes stabilized per your own perception, ergo not going to doctor stabilizes eyes. of course! it makes perfect sense. or perhaps your eyes stabilized because that's what happens when people get older. or perhaps they have gotten worse but because it's happened gradually and only slightly over time you don't perceive it.

just gonna add my $0.02 to adarq about not using an inhaler for short-term athletic performance. the comparison with contact lenses is spurious.

[A] Moroccan runner ... completed the grueling Marathon des Sables through the Sahara Desert earlier this week. He is talented and he is also a dog.

Cactus linked up with the race after Sunday’s opening 20-mile stage, sticking around for the next four stages and 120 miles of running. The Marathon des Sables is a famously difficult race, where competitors have to run an average of 23.5 miles per day for five days straight through the sand, sun, and wind of the unforgiving Sahara of southern Morocco. It’s not the sort of thing anyone does primarily for fun, excepting of course Cactus, who seemed to enjoy his time with the race.

haha fair enough. although my own relatively limited experience with getting people to throw me lobs is that it's harder than it looks. maybe all your boy needs is a bit of a talking-to about the zip he puts on them.

- run 8.29 km in 41:54
went out a bit too quick (first km 4:56) and apart from the third km didn't go above 5:04. some weird tightness in posterior left knee. out of nowhere, not painful. rest tomorrow and then plan for saturday is speed, but i'll be careful with the knee

- stretch

- pull up myo reps x 10+3+3+3
still weak, sheesh
