^^ long story short, I might have worked some magic on myself. I got really annoyed at the injury and just tried to stretch the living fu*k out of it - which I knew could be a very bad idea. This was up there with the longest & most intense i’ve ever stretched.

holding stretch positions for 5-10 minutes and such is very difficult. you have to focus so hard on just staying relaxed & calm. really controlling your breathing, trying to just melt into it, and then hold with no protective tension.

could be a David Goggins moment lol. He’s well known for 2-3 hour stretch sessions every night. I def don’t want to get into that… But sometimes your body is just urging you to do some intense stretching, it feels like an instinct. Apparently he fixed his jacked up body (from stress/training) by really committing to stretching.

when I was stretching yesterday, I wasn’t thinking about the injured area actually healing… I just wanted it to release it’s grip for a while and fucking relax.

would be amazing if it’s fixed now.

very quick log.

this morning's run.... legs felt insanely loose/relaxed. in fact, i was going as slow as possible and still hit 10:0X min/mi. That's actually pretty nuts. Recent sessions at the same effort were > 11 easily. Evening session wasn't as good, legs felt heavier, 11:0X.. but that morning session, legs were crazy loose. I love that feeling. Need to figure out how to always have that "snappy loose feeling". I imagine lots of elite runners, jumpers, sprinters etc experience that often.

Sometimes when I do this it feels amazing and fixes me, occasionally it just makes it worse though. Guess you just gotta play it by feel!

ya.

need to really try not to force it. i think that's where it falls apart.

stretching has wrecked me probably more than it's helped. but there's got to be something i'm missing. hehe.

feel ok. a bit bloated from last night's rice + saute'd peppers dinner.

feel great after the evening session + dinner. had turmeric/egg pasta (a kind of pasta), sitting really well in my stomach. very nice. the one in the middle:




06/04/2019:

08:00 PM: run + bw + light stretch

run: HR anomaly or watch glitch? wtf? HR slowly went up 1 BPM for the entire run - was blowing my mind during the run lmfao. ::: light: 36 min ::: (grass/dirt/rocks)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2424331419
- 3.27 mi 10:58 /mi 35m 54s

how crazy is this. i was trying to maintain the same effort, stay very relaxed etc.. and my HR kept going up 1 beat over the course of the entire run:





bw:
- weak
- 3 sec paused dead hang ng pullups: BW x 6
- full dips: BW x 6

light stretch:
- just a few light stretches




11:55 PM: stretch
- about to do a long stretch session

damn crazy. i've never seen it before.

still on the fence as to whether or not it was a glitch (initial HR at the start was correct, before it shot up). i was tempted to sprint at the end just to jack the HR up, should have done it.

some speed tonight.

felt pretty good. felt ok after. felt a little tightness/pain in the injured area.. got annoyed. been stretching the fuck out of it. feh.

06/05/2019:

09:50 AM: run + bw

run: light: 13 min ::: (grass/dirt/rocks)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2425592344
- 1.24 mi 10:21 /mi 12m 56s

bw:
- 5 sec paused dead hang ng pullups: BW x 6
- full dips: BW x 8
- dead hang ng pullup holds at the bottom: BW x failure
- full dip holds at the top: BW x failure



07:30 PM: just 400m @ 68 before getting kicked off the track
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2427053164
- https://www.endomondo.com/users/26420622/workouts/1332471878
- https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/3719680798
- 3.10 mi 9:03 /mi 28m 3s

decent. 4:2X pace for most of it.

warmup strides good too.









12:00 AM: idiotic stretching
- annoyed

one thing so far before i sign off: standing ground touch (hamstring stretch) x ~15 minutes non stop. hamstrings/glutes spazzing out insane by the end. triggers a sensation directly in the injured area (glute/hamstring/sacral spine). i probably actually injured it by doing stuff like that. heh.

gn!

decided to do lunges.

sat with wide squat posture on a physioball while computing today, to try and target my sacral spine/hips. hit it really hard actually.

i sit on the ball when working/coding but normally with shit posture. forcing a wide squat+good posture on it really stresses the hips/sacral spine hard. feels good and bad.


06/06/2019:

09:00 PM: lunges: 15 min (400 total)
- 0.24 mi 17s /mi 4s

light run. legs still sore af.

went very light on the run. ended up mid 9's which is interesting given the effort/soreness.

curious to see if lunges jack me up. if not, i want to do them nightly. if so, that'd suck.

it'd be nice to:
- AM light run: 30-60 min
- PM threshold/strength: 15-30 min lunges

i'd love to test that out for a long time.

but, i need to make sure:
- not to lunge if i'm sore/achy
- run very light
- rest if i can't move



06/09/2019:
- hamstrings improved, but glutes/quads still wrecked.
- left hamstring origin a little weird towards the end of the night
- glutes have crazy painful spots all over them



11:00 AM: light: 29 min ::: (grass/dirt/rocks) /// wanted to do an hour but - lightning.
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2436808557
- 3.04 mi 9:36 /mi 29m 13s





05:45 PM: bw
- strong
- 3sec paused dead hang ng pullups: BW x 8
- full dips: BW x 8
- dead hang ng pullup holds while twisting side to side: BW x probably a minute (nice)



some light stretching on/off, nothing major. some manual deep tissue on my glutes/hamstring origins tho.
