May was going so good "work" wise.. we're hiring one of my old colleagues, an absolute monster on backend/infrastructure & even frontend.

Then today, our lead frontend engineer (who has become an absolute beast), is leaving. fu*k that convo sucked so bad. can tell it was a hard decision for him, was a rough call. we'll miss him & I imagine he'll miss us, but apparently he found an opportunity that is closer to home & more in line w/ what he wants to do in the future.

FU*K.

just wrecked my day + week + month. lol.

it's always something.

Thread hijak alert- Hey mate can I "run" something by you.

I want to run twice a week and eventually build up to a decent 5k time in the future (5-6 months away). I was thinking something faster 1 day (intervals/sprints/etc) and 1 slowish day (building from 3-5-10ish). End goal is a relatively fast 5k time and some overall endurance. Any advice?

nice!

imho, the more "volume buildup" you can do, the better. it's more important than speed training, especially early on. BUT, it's easy to work that in on the speed day.

your speed day can consist of:
- very light but "long" warmup (ie 1 mile to start)
- intervals/strides: don't be so strict with work/rest ratios early on, ie if you want to do 4 x 400 @ 5k pace (and eventually 8-10 x 400 or 4-6 x 800, or 3 x 1k), try to get it done given whatever work/rest ratio you want, but don't be disappointed/upset if you need to take more recovery etc. even at the correct paces, intervals aren't easy. so don't be super strict with them. try to keep it mentally stress free & fun.
- very light but "long" cooldown (ie 1 mile to start) .. can eventually finish off w/ however long you feel comfortable with that day.

volume day could simply be:
- light & steady, building up safely, anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour as the weeks progress.

imho, don't need tempo or anything like that. the interval/sprint stuff is a great idea because it's fun, keeps your body strong, & it's effective at throwing in some lactic acid. the more long/light stuff you get in, the stronger your heart/lungs will get.

one very important thing the light steady long running does, is give you an opportunity to learn how to relax while running. it's extremely important.

also if possible, do as much stuff on softer surfaces as you can .. soft ie inside of track grass, baseball/futbol field grass etc. i'd do most of my stuff on soft surfaces, then just race on concrete, no problem. soft surfaces keep you healthier & make you stronger.

finally, any sign of issues creeping up, take it serious. running injuries are vicious, but almost always have precursors. need to know when to back off etc.

even the very light stuff can end up causing issues, so have to just listen very carefully to the body, then you're good. don't run through injuries etc.

taking time off or missing days won't hurt you too much. it hurts more mentally than physically.

just my quick 2 cents!

bw = 140



STEPPED ON ANOTHER FUCKING BEE YESTERDAY.

man.. talk about pain. excruciating.

the one i stepped on 2 weeks ago, with my big toe, ok that hurt.. but this pinky toe one? haven't dropped that many F bombs in a long time.

felt like a "flaming hot scalpel" for what must have been 15 minutes.. then hurt for several hours after that. i never removed the stinger, so it could still be in there.. couldn't find it like i normally do.

these bees just lay down and die on the pool deck.. then you step on them, game over. lmao. so glad my dogs havent stepped on one.. one got stung years back and he went apeshit.

lmao.

Man that's rough! Never been stung by a bee but imagine it can't be fun. Sure it wasn't one of those murder hornets they've been talking about?

bw = 139

physical activity: 6 hr
- urban farming life
- weeding, mulching, transplanting 30 transplants to 3-5 gallon pots etc
- did everything under the shade of this big tree, but somehow my back got sunburned pretty bad.. dumb move going shirtless.
- going to plant a ton of seeds tomorrow. got it all lined up. need to turn it up another notch.

136 after .. lol.

weight is flying off lately.. kinda nuts.

might run tomorrow, might not tho.. clipped a wall with my foot last night, took a little chunk of skin out of the bottom of my pinky toe. still hurts like a mfqr. im an idiot. ;f

bw = 140

run: 2h5m
- felt great
- pace was naturally alot faster than previous runs
- felt it towards the end though

after run:
- bw = 135
- calves sore (like usual), left more so

kinda nuts.. could end up seeing 129.x on the scale for the first time ever: since weighing myself, never saw that weight.. lol.

135 probably ties the lowest i've seen. somewhere around there.

i'm an alien it's odd. :ibrunning:



tmw:
- tons of farm life: re-potting lots of banana plants, potting more roselle transplants, moving seedlings to cups etc.
- also putting more seeds in: squash, pumpkin, beans, radishes, moringa.. and an ENTIRE tray of green bell & jalapeno.

bw = 138
soreness = calves alot (left more so), quads slightly, hamstrings barely

activity:
- 6 hours of yard work
- not what i had planned.. started harvesting peppers and then got pissed at how much "bacterial leaf spot" i was seeing.. so threw out ~15 plants and moved ~10 into quarantine. fucking sux.
- will probably need to throw those out next week.. i also have to throw out the dirt & net pots. plastic pots i can re-use after i sterilize them a bit.
- some stressful stuff with farm life.. just hoping that i eventually figure it out and make it nice and smooth. love picking my own veggies.. hates dealing w/ pests and bacteria/fungal attackers.
- garbage can i filled up must have been 200-300 lb.. one of those enormous cans, packed with dirt/plans. could barely move it.. was a sled drag workout. had to be careful.

i think the bacterial leaf spot came from some "bonnie plants" transplants i bought. pretty much ALL of those plants have come down with it.. so they probably already had it. brutal.

plan is to just keep growing stuff form seed and get really good at keeping my stuff CLEAN.



3 lb harvest:
