hey man,

was wondering if you use any kind of calf compression while running/after? Looking at getting some dedicated running sleeves, 2xu ones look good? - been using some anti embolosim knee height stockings i stole from my sister after she had surgery, but they are falling apart pretty quick, however they do seem to have helped with calf soreness!

yo! nah I don't.. i've never run with any compression, other than somewhat tight high socks. I've worn compression stockings before for jumping/short sprints/lifting, they did feel good, but never ran distance in them.

I was thinking of getting compression pants, but they were pretty expensive.

nice that they seem to help with calf soreness.

you getting these?






damn these pants look TIGHT (literally):

maxent jinxed me, wtf.

i've never had abdominal pain after eating bananas, or tons of bananas.. today however, pain in my upper abdomen, which could be related to bananas.. i mean it seems like my actual abdominals, but it's a very weird/somewhat sharp pain.

http://www.livestrong.com/article/544171-why-do-bananas-cause-a-stomach-ache/


wfkwdokdpokvpeokvpeorwjvprot92jv-39jf2i3jd2wj2wjspo2jwdpojfpo!@#@!$

FML.

please don't kill yourself lol

lmao. ikr.

i'm starting to think it's strained portions of my abdominals from running 2x yesterday and doing intense calisthenics.

i really can't see how it could be from bananas.. i've eaten like 50,000 bananas.

heh.

pc!

rained basically all day.. not during my run tho.



01/12/2016



Bio: Morning

sleep = 7 hr + 2 hour nap
wakeup = 6 AM
bw = 158 lb. (bloated)
morning resting heart rate = 43
soreness = calves slightly but after my evening run
aches =
injuries = toenails wrekt, upper abdominals - very weird though
bananas = 0
feel = tired



Food

6:30 AM

- 1 x orange juice
- 1 x greek yogurt



Food

8:30 AM

- egg omelette



Food

3 PM

- 1 x berry beet (some berry + beet blend, was actually pretty good)
- 1 x almond joy



Session: Evening

7:30 PM

run:
- 10.45 mi in 1:17:58
- pace: 7:28 min/mi
- speed: 8 mph
- strike: heel->toe entirely
- shoes: nb 5000v2
- relaxed ipod run, listened to two talks

- last time I ran 10+, I ran 10.66 in 1:25:18 .. so.. decent improvement on this run: 7:28 min/mi vs 7:59 min/mi, aka 8 mph vs 7.5 mph

splits:
- first mile my watch glitched, weird.. has me at 8 min/mi but, 5:35 mi/mi for "moving time".. so really, it was more like a 6:xx min/mi.. odd
- mile 1, 2: 6:xx, 6:23
- mile 3,4,5,6,7,8: 7:47, 7:59, 7:42, 7:55, 7:59, 7:41
- mile 9: 8:05
- mile 10: 7:58
- mile 11: ~6:49 (pushed it)

^^ definitely better splits than my last 10:xx .. dno what happened on mile 9.

abdominals didn't bother me.


Food

9 PM

- rice and beans + double grilled chicken
- 3/4th pint haagen dazs



shitty day with the weird abdominal pain.. kind of scary but, ithink it's just some weird low-grade strain from calisthenics + running yesterday.. figure I fatigued/stressed my abdominals hard during calisthenics, then wrecked them even more during my run. if it's banana related - uhhh would suck..

gn!

ya those are the ones. the tights do look pretty sweet - so expensive though + i think the calf only would offer more compression. i have some nike compression tights for but they offer next to 0 calf compression, they seem to instantly increase flxibility for oly lifting though - double up as insulation when its cold too.

ps for what it's worth, i think the abdo pain is more likely the calisthenics stuff than banana related, can't really see how bananas would be causing pain the day after, particularly upper abdominal pain. - on a banana related note, http://thebananagirl.com/ LOL

nice. if you get the calve sleeves, curious to see how you feel in them when running/recovery. My calves have been much less sore lately, but, that coincides with more heel->toe strike, which is more natural for me. I've been utilizing it lately because i'm trying not to think about anything when i'm running.

2xu looks like some good quality stuff.

ya I think so too. maxent was just trying to be helpful (I was kidding when I said he jinxed me), then this weird pain + all of the bananas, got in my head :f

seems alot better today.. but I also didn't eat any bananas yesterday. I'll probably eat some tonight so, we'll see tmw.

2XU is awesome. However, if you can't try them on first don't buy them,  sizing is whack. I tried a long sleeve top once and XL was not even possible to put on. ( my size for compression stuff is borderline M->L ).
Take a look at Skins stuff, still expensive but a bit less, great quality and an* 100% trustworthy size guide chart.

*Off topic: is it 'an 100%' or 'a 100%' ? what is the rule? the letter ( vowel vs consonant ) or the pronunciation?
In Greek final 'n' is preserved if the first letter of the following word is vowel OR one of 5 specific consonants, FML.

Edit : found my answer, the English criterion is "vowel/consonant sound"

One is pronounced |wĘŚn| so it is 'a 100% '

Yep! Lot's of americans I know think it depends on the letter and not the sound.
They will also say things like "I'm gone for a hour" and such  :wowthatwasnutswtf:

I've noticed that every Romanian I've come across on a forum can write excellent English  :headbang:

Bio: Morning

sleep = 7 hr
wakeup = 7 AM
bw = 156 lb.
morning resting heart rate = 43
soreness = glutes slightly, quads slightly
aches = left wrist slightly
injuries = toenails wrekt
bananas = 3
feel = tired



upper abdominals felt good today.. so basically cleared up. felt it once or twice but not worth listing as still a problem.

toenails have been feeling alot better in my New Balance 5000v2's.. still wrecked but, not feeling them at all in these shoes.  :wowthatwasnutswtf:




Food

7:30 AM

- 1 x orange juice
- 1 x greek yogurt



Session: Morning

8:00 AM - 8:40 AM

calisthenics:
- mostly upper, but also some lower
- felt strong but didn't do much crazy stuff since I trained at home
- did more holds
- lower was cool: did single leg rdl's while holding my off-ankle and stretching my quad, heel to butt.. so did these at a variety of angles, and with toes elevated (not heels elevated) to stretch my calf more
- going to do more lower stuff.. especially stuff where i'm stretching and performing movements
- didn't do rings because of the abdominal issues yesterday



Food

- 1 x whole milk



Food

1:30 PM

anthony's again:
- roast beef sandwich
- 12 chicken wings (drums)
- some french deserts



Food

5:00 PM

- 1 x gatorade



Session: Evening

7:30 PM
- felt real crappy at the start of this run.. ate alot earlier, so I was feeling it.. but run turned out good.

run:
- 8.62 mi in 1:00:15
- pace: 7:00 min/mi
- speed: 8.6 mph
- calories: 1,051
- strike: heel->toe
- shoes: nb 5000v2
- ran with ipod, listened to lectures

splits:
- mile 1,2: 6:36, 6:41
- mile 3,4,5: 7:04, 7:29, 7:11
- mile 6: 6:45
- mile 7,8: 7:17, 7:15
- mile ~9: 6:25

decent run. previous 8+'s were 8.3's (not 8.6) in 1:02:xx, 1:08:xx etc.. so 8.6 in 1:00:15 is a nice improvement.

eclipsed my endomondo.com stat of miles in an hour by ~0.6 mi

getting closer to running 9mph for an hour, but, not close to running it "relaxed".. i definitely have to work at this pace.



Food

8:30 PM

- 1 x whole milk



Food

9:00 PM

- 3 x banana
- 1 x greek yogurt



Food

- 1 x chocolate soy milk




i should be trying to sleep right now, eh!!! :(

glutes are very sore right now.. good sign I guess.

funny i've been running harder whilst giving less mental effort, since running with my ipod :F I've been listening to lectures.. I might download some trance-like music too and see how I feel running with that. When I was boxing, I had an ipod.. Did all of my jump rope/running with it. I'd zone out for HOURS. heh.. One thing that really helps is, I don't hear myself breathe. Hearing myself breathe actually wrecks me sometimes, mostly at the start of a run. It just gets in my head initially. Eventually it goes away..... but so far with these lectures, i'm so focused on trying to listen to what these people are saying, that I don't focus on my breathing, or form, at all.. just on pace and trying to listen to the audio.

That's what you call time-efficient.  One movement = calf stretch, quad stretch, glute/ham strengthening? Killing 3 birds with 1 stone!

If money is no object go with the enerskin calf sleeves.  They have built in k-tape and are reversible (one side moderate compression with taping for training/competition) the other side is high level compression for recovery.   Just DO NOT sleep in them!

man i am dead.



01/14/2016



Bio: Morning

sleep = 7 hr + 2 hour nap
wakeup = 6:30 AM
bw = 156 lb.
morning resting heart rate = didn't measure
soreness = glutes alot, quads alot, adductors slightly, calves slightly
aches = knees slightly

Food

7 AM

- 1 x orange juice

Session: Afternoon

2 PM

run:

Just couldn't get rid of these cramps. Was brutal.. I stopped running and stretched my ribcage etc, which usually fixes it.. but it just kept coming back. So just quit and walked home heh.

uhhhh.. this is addicting.. :)

did some short sprints today while wearing my garmin, it captured my sprints nicely.

really need to work on my sprinting again, was fun. Had absolutely no pop initially, then I started to feel some bounce.. can see it in the data.

max speed on one of the sprints was 15.1 mph ;f



all of the sprints:
- look at the error in the beginning.. this happens sometimes when I start the watch. it has me at 39 mph at the very beginning, wtf. hehe.
- 17 ~10-80 yard sprints





fastest sprint:



total:
- 1.00 mi to 1.08 mi (accel to decel)
- 1.00 mi to 1.05 mi (accel to max v)







all of the sprints again, condensed view:





pretty cool!

Pretty cool.... People like to measure their 40' and 100's. But i wonder what it would be like if we all knew our top speeds, and how that correlated with things like SVJ, DLRVJ, SLRVJ, squat:bw ratio, etc.

The thing is - if you know your 40 time and your 100 time then you can calculate your top speed with almost perfect accuracy...  We don't really hit an instantaneous top speed that much faster or slower than our best 10m split over the course of the 100... 

Your top speed will have very little correlation with your squat:bw ratio and little correlation with your other jumps.
