yesterday:

stayed awake to watch Eliud Kipchoge drop 1:59:40. well worth it. one of the most incredible sporting events i've seen. as a "runner/racer", you just lock in to him and analyze him the entire time. so basically 2 hours locked in inspecting his state & hoping he can maintain the pace.

on a weird note.. did some of my best ever "release" on my injured areas, about an hour before the event. put all (sitting) pressure on the jacknobber, at a few spots in my hamstring/adductor.

felt immediate relief and felt great all day (the next day) and fine during a run.

would be nuts if i healed myself after 8 months, on the day of kipchoge's 1:59 attempt.

made this photo (noob stuff but i like how it came out):

12:00 AM: jacknobber

felt great all day. also feeling very light.

cleaning up diet again. have stopped (about a week) the fasting I had been doing for months, in order to eat more fruit in the morning etc. fasting helped me get my weight down with less run volume.

now that my run volume is going up a little bit again (not frequency, just 2 long sessions per week), i'm more hungry in the morning. my weight is still down so it doesn't really matter.

when i eat 5 bananas and 2 avocados, i feel great. etc.

i just want to eat more fruit and veggies. if eating some in the morning helps me do more of that, then i'm all for it.



10/12/2019

04:45 PM: light: 1h30m w/ {1h15m "steep hill" non-stop) ::: (rocks) /// decent! wanted to make it to 10 mi on the hill but only made it to 8
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2783859413/overview
- https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4150315093
- avg cadence < 170 lmfao. solid.

great session. very relaxed but decent hill pace.

my goal still, is to be able to run 20 miles non-stop up/down that steep hill. so far i don't think i've gotten to 10. I did 42 miles on this course once, but that's doing the loop. not going up/down the steep hill repeatedly. so 20 miles non-stop would be psychotic. been on my mind for a while. need to slowly chip away at that.

legs feel great post-session.







143 before bed.

waking up early for CHI marathon. \o/ :ibrunning:

my pro singlets.

have another one, not pictured.



10/13/2019

bw: 142

soreness: calves wrecked

injured area tightened up after yesterday's run. so much for that.

massage:
- tons of jacknobbering my right hamstring/glutes/adductors
- also did some calves before bed (so painful)

just ordered 3 more jacknobber's! so i'll have 4 total.

want to try out some weird stuff.. like doing both calves simultaneously, with adductors or glutes etc.

sounds crazy & very painful. 8|

prior to my last run, i had planned to run today but calves too sore.

hope to get in some miles tmw.

10/15/2019

bw: 143
- nice!

injury: annoying today

05:30 PM: stretch: adductors
- decent. got some good depth

12:45 AM: jacknobber + stretch: ~30 min
- ok this is no joke :wowthatwasnutswtf:
- all hamstrings/adductors for now
- one leg propped up on a countertop, with jacknobber underneath hamstring/adductors, slowly putting pressure on various spots until my muscles relaxed etc
- loosened some stuff up bigtime
- some of it was crazy painful but got it to melt
- adductors are especially painful

going to experiment more with that.

post-stretch, feel damn good.

Nice bw drop. looked through your log a bit to see previous history of weight. 160 -> 140 is pretty intense.

also noticed this:
Quote
- 40" RVJ (LR DLRVJ)
- 35" L-SLRVJ
your original vert goals were identical to mine!

Could you give me an opinion on maintaining lean strength while losing bodyweight and how they relate to athleticism? I am moderately strong right now at 190 (maybe 315 1RM BS) but would like to get around 170 with like a 355 1RM. I think my best BW:strength ratio is around 180:375 The actual strength numbers don't matter that much, just the explosiveness I get from them.

You think it would be better to drop to a more extreme 170 or a modest 185 and keep more strength if my end goal is overall athleticism (explosiveness, top speed, dlrvj, slrvj, hard change of direction and agility)? obviously I would be doing a lot more field work than strength work as well

cool thanks!

160+ to 142 without much exercise, over ~6 months or so. mostly diet. way diff than usual.

i prefer the slow cut. with that, i'd just step up frequency a bit on the strength work. that formula always worked great for me. don't have to try to crush it in the weight room if the frequency is higher, and more frequent sessions help keep the LBM on while going into a caloric deficit etc.

190 to 170 is a big drop, so i wouldn't force it. 170 may be unrealistic right now - no idea. as long as you're taking it slow, you'll maintain or increase power/strength imho, either way being a relative power/strength increase.

i did something similar when dunking, 160 to 145 etc. just kept the frequency high (short lifting sessions) + moderate jump/sprint sessions, and cleaned up diet. always worked great for me.

pc!

woke up.

whole house vibrating.

sounds like an electrical issue.. or an issue with the water heater, about to explode.

after 30 min or so.. find out it's some kind of water pressure issue related to the sprinklers. turned the hose on (because a loud sound was coming from there too) and the sound instantly disappeared.

fuck that freaked me out. thought the water heater was going to explode.

called landlord people. they are going to have someone check it out.

doubt i'll be able to go back to sleep.

Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses
