meditation getting extremely blissful at the moment to the point where it's hard to get on and do anything else!


BTW adarq, the internet is being glacially slow now for most websites. except not this one, which is loading normally. any idea why that might be? gmail won't load at all, washington post is hit or miss. the guardian and al jazeera load but slowly. lots of other websites load but without images/media.

EDIT: embeds here like instagram posts don't load.

that seems like a great place to start vag.

- warm up x 2 km
right calf felt a little tight for the first km or so but loosened up to 100% status. something to monitor.

- tempo x 3 km in [4:09, 4:06, 4:03]

- cool down x 2.22 km

lowered target pace on watch to 4:00-4:10, not only hit it but got negative splits. it's a loop, too, so not like i was cheating on the incline or wind.

fuck the police, burn the whole system to the ground.

and, to quote james baldwin: "I object to the term 'looters' because I wonder who is looting whom, would you define somebody who puts a cat where he is and takes all the money out of the ghetto where he makes it? Who is looting whom?"

- run 9.12 km in 43:46
4:48 average pace. kept it a little short today so as not to go too far over my weekly target yet. will be around 53-54 km for the week after saturday's hard workout.

- stretch

i think i need to start adding distance on these weekday runs, to get back up closer to an hour on my feet. <50 minutes is too easy now, gotta progress. might not be a bad idea to add time to the long runs as well, as long as i can keep my pace down. getting to three 60-min runs, one 90-min run, and a speed workout every week would push me up a bit, i think.

that's interesting, that it'd be stress-related for both of you. that could be it. like with my headaches last fall, i don't feel consciously stressed but this situation is undoubtedly stressful so it's possible that my body is manifesting the stress that way. i've been sleeping okay: it's been a little bit hard to get to sleep the last couple of nights, i think mostly because it's getting warmer, but i've been getting at least 7 and usually more like 8 hours, which is normal. and no more or less caffeine than usual.

@gukl, it's a ringing or more accurately a steady high-pitched buzz, like the sound an old tv makes when it's on but muted.

- run 10.43 km in 55:08
first 3 km w/ex-gf (weird to type that) in ~6:15 pace, then pretty steady ~4:54 average the rest of the way.

- stretch

i have tinnitus like crazy in my left ear all of a sudden. started yesterday. no idea what might have brought it on. no loud noises i can think of, and i don't feel unwell. strange.

quite understandable, all things considered. good luck getting back on the horse.

- run 10.24 km in 49:58
4:53 pace is the exact target for weekday runs. noice.

- stretch

gorgeous day.

- run 16.07 km in 1:23:58
successfully slowed down, averaged 5:13 pace. splits mostly consistent through the middle, a little too quick up top and a little slower at the end. breath easy but legs were a little tired by the end of this.

- stretch

EDIT: just realized i ran 9.99 miles. lololol damn it.

the first clip in that video is really impressive, i don't know that i've ever seen such a strict rep before on poor man's GHR. his hips don't break at all.

- warm up x 1 km

- interval 400m in [88,90,88,88,87,85,90] w/200m jogging rest
super windy, enough to blow the upwind leg into the downwind leg while running across and to really feel the pressure running into it. still managed to get everything under 90 (numbers above are rounded). the 85 on the penultimate lap is a good sign, although it was mostly with or at least across the wind rather than into it.

- cool down x 1.39 km

- stretch

might lower the target pace the next time i do intervals, reduce the reps to six, then build back up to eight.

i leave for the states, for good, in just over two weeks. so on the other hand all the pacing is gonna have to be revised because of the heat and humidity. well, one thing at a time.
