thanks man!

though, epitome of AELS/AERS might have dropped out of the race completely. :/ i definitely tried not to "add to the damage" tho. hope that's the case.

this will frustrate me for a long time, until I fix it (with a big performance).. hehe.

on pace to try and drop something big:



jogging it out:



sucks.

oh btw. shut it down completely the last 4 miles, not 3.

also a full res image someone (mike from rundepot!) took of me at the end hah.

got a shoutout from runner's depot, cool:



Quote
Congratulations Andrew on a great marathon! @andrewdarqui

^^ when I saw that in black & white, I thought it was late in the race.. that might be around ~6:40 AM, hyper focused, on pace for sub 2:50.



quads/hamstrings sore - DOMS style. left hip improving more than right achilles. hoping right achilles is alot better tomorrow. just has this tender/tight feeling to it.

diet:

two cool things.

52 year old got 3rd OA in the half: 1:15 .. flying. I remember this guy from "Run from the rays 5k". He looked like he was in insane shape, and he was. Dropped like 16:20 or something - 1st OA (i got 3rd in that race).





i actually cracked up bad when i read this.. how awesome is this comment? lmfao!!!!!



hahaha.



 :ibrunning: :trollface: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ninja:





on a related note. when i was getting close to finishing the marathon, a couple yelled out support, i gave them the peace sign. and as i was going, i heard the guy say "that's the guy who won vista view" (the ultra) .. was kinda cool. i was trotting real slow so, that sucked.

fun stuff. hah.

been resting. took 4 days rest before i couldn't feel my right achilles being "tender" anymore. so got a light run in!

other than that, legs felt great. only sore on monday night, then felt fine every other day. nuts.

02/22/2019

07:15 AM: (after 4 days rest) /// very light: 1h26m ::: (grass, good overheat, feel ok) /// felt left hip very slightly at 8:5X so slowed it down, right achilles felt ok
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2166959971

legs felt great after marathon, but left hip/right achilles needed to heal. right achilles was worse the first few days after the marathon. left hip seemed ok. but on the run today, actually felt my left hip/back a few times & didn't feel achilles at all. good news about the achilles i guess (achilles stuff always freaks me out). need this hip/back shit to disappear it's weird. top of right foot along the big toe side hurts a bit too.

will just keep going super slow until i feel 100%.

overheat was solid, HR kept going up even with such a slow pace. was cookin.

not a fan of marathon foto. they suck. can't even browse the event photos to find other ones you're in. and their prices are ridiculous.

going to try eating a spinach salad per day, from now through march. 1 bag of spinach + some other things to mix it up.

i'm just not eating enough greens lately.

02/23/2019

09:00 AM: very light: 1h33m ::: (grass/dirt/rocks, brutal overheat, no hip pain!) /// lmao @ my HR & pace!
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2169643504

substantial water loss. heavy clothes. knocked me out. afterwards just passed out for hours.

hip/low back/achilles felt good, but i was also going very slow.

probably one more run tomorrow, then rest monday.







1337. :trollface:

i passed out for 3+ hours after that run.. dehydrated to fu*k. wrecked me. felt great all day afterwards tho.

left knee/back a little achy before bed tho. hope it's fine tmw.

want to get in a light long run then rest monday.

top of right foot still hurting after physical activity. odd.

02/25/2019

2019 spinach salads: 4

diet:
- ate decent

08:00 AM: strength!
- lots of stuff
- 3sec paused dead hang ng pullups: BW x 5, sad
- finished with some empty bar squats, ohp, curl .. squat/ohp felt so good.

08:30 PM: empty bar: squat {30, 30, 40, 50}, standing OHP {25}, curl {25}
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2175771676
- quick high rep session
- wanted to get some heart rate data for fun
- probably going to be sore from that
- felt good
- heels elevated, half squat, comfortable/close stance

standing ohp made my HR blow up a bit (140's) and HR didn't recover fast. HR recovered quick with squats, and didn't get too high.
