- GMB floor 1.1
eh, i don't think i want to start this all over again, either.


- run 6.1 km in 28:48
tried to keep it relaxed, still ended up at 4:43 pace. that is a few hairs fast but i hadn't run in two weeks (!!!) so it makes sense that my legs were ready to go. right foot felt a little weird at the beginning but not the arch really so that's a good sign. still, no run tomorrow and i'll keep the distances very modest for a while.

- stretch

holy fuck.


U.S. power industry may ask key employees to live at work if coronavirus worsens

i was talking to a friend the other day who's a professor at the university of maryland agriculture school. apparently faculty who have live animal experiments going were given a choice either to let the animals die (or perhaps euthanize them all, i'm not sure) or to continue taking care of them but only if they agreed to live on campus for the foreseeable future.

yes, exactly.

is australia a month behind the rest of the world? or are you for some reason logging with a month-long lag?  :trollface:

(you're writing dates with "2" in the months position)

blister on left heel, what the hell? been running in these shoes for two months but apparently walking in them is so different it gave me a blister. didn't go for a long walk today. instead

- yoga x 35 mins
did a lesson from alo moves, which my gf subscribes to, focused on leg activation. pretty tough. yoga is really not the best route for me because of my toes. i'm gonna start back in with GMB instead, from tomorrow.

i had what i think was a posture-related (certainly shoulder/back/neck-related) headache on wednesday. heat patches and the electric self-massager are great IME.

Welcome to the Geat Awakening. What's about to happen this summer and fall will change the world's history

boy i'm sure glad this asshole has welcomed me to the geat awakening. this would be funny if anti-vax bullshit weren't so dangerous.

it's like fortune telling or horoscopes: make stuff vague and plausible enough that whatever happens, you can say, "see! i was right all along!"


- walk 6 km in 55:00

- stretch

gonna walk again today and do something a bit more intense. not sure what yet. still waking up with a little arch pain/discomfort so not ready to run again.

yep they're talking about the UK economy shrinking 15% in Q2. that would be depression level.

i just hope the inevitable stricter lockdown they impose in london -- as early as tomorrow, per reports -- doesn't preclude going outside to exercise as long as you stay well apart from others. the SF-style "shelter in place" lockdown, which allows grocery and pharmacy trips and for outdoor exercise, seems sane and tolerable. hope people are being responsible enough here that they don't have to get the military to keep people indoors. so much uncertainty.

the three-week delay thing is so critical. people have no imagination and they've been taught by the right wing for years not to believe the news, not to believe the government, not to believe scientists. so you get 50+% of the US population thinking this is no big deal. the problem is that if everything works, the numbers will level off and the locking down will look like an overreaction because not so many people will get sick or die. but everything is not working, in which case yeah, hundreds of thousands of people at least will die.

brazil is dealing with a similar leadership problem with bolsonaro.

- walk 5.21 km in 51:19
a bit overcast but bright. breezy. walked through the olympic park, was nice to see people out and about even if not interacting with them. joggers, bikers, parents pushing strollers, a pair of older men pruning branches along a path, a pair of teenagers making out on a park bench.

- GMB warm up (partial)

- scales x 5,5,5/leg

- stretch
whatever's wrong with my foot is definitely still there, i can feel it dully during deep calf stretches or when i pull the skin up around my arch.

this shit was not man-made. nope nope nope. 0.000000...% chance.

the comparison to the civil war makes no sense at all.

an election was held during the civil war.

we're at war now. these folks will make patriotic analogies to make us feel proud and brave.

and then we'll get cv19 at the polls and die.

traditional american bravery doesn't back down to enemies of any kind.

makes a little sense.

oh got it, i see what you're saying. it makes sense to a certain stunted understanding of the world in which all problems are reducible to martial metaphors and values. there's an internal logic, it's the premises that don't make sense. anyway as you were saying, it's a harmful kind of understanding to promote. holding a big group gathering is not brave or patriotic under the circumstances, it's irresponsible.

did you find out what the berries are? there's an app that can tell you what a plant is using the camera. can't remember what it's called.

I saw a guy in the gym today beasting on the bike, he was doing intervals i think. If you can ramp the difficulty up and then do tabata protocol (i think 6x20s on, with 20s rest?) it can be a great conditioning tool. Doing steady state with bike though, i find im better at challenging my legs than my heart and lungs .. hr sticks around 135bpm which is a bit too leisurely but still hard work for my legs..

tabata is 8x20s on/10s rest. and the "on" is all-out, like you're riding away from a lion that's catching up to you.
