high tops are dead weight. why wear such a heavy shoe? that is the question.

x2

If I didn't have high tops on I'd feel like I was gonna rip my ankle off my leg and it'd hop away...never to return.

Also, on strava for that 10k challenge, some guy logged in a 106km run in like 5.5 hours.....I'm guessing he used a car or dirt bike lol

ya some people cheat on purpose, it's odd.

I need to run a 10k this month in order to get some stats for that challenge.. eventually I need to try and push for a sub-40m .. I've never gone under 40 minutes. I'd need to be consistently hitting low 19's in 5k though first.





journaling early, because i might fall asleep early again  :headbang:


06/12/2016

Bio: Morning

last night's sleep: ~10 hours
last night fell asleep: ~1 AM
wakeup = 11 AM
bw = 148
morning resting heart rate = didn't measure
soreness = quads slightly
aches = none!
injuries = previously ingrown big-toenail slightly (weird sensations)
standing desk (when on computer): none
feel = good but, eyes tired at times, probably from that caff up/PR jumping a few days ago
water = alot



Food

11:30 AM

- greek yogurt



Session: Afternoon

1:30 PM
- ~85F
- shoes: NEW nb 5000v2's .. feel so good when they are brand new ;f
- breaking them in

runs:

1. warmup: 0.15 mi in 53s
- 10 mph, 6:01 min/mi

2. warmup: 0.25 mi in 1m:30s
- 9.9 mph, 6:02 min/mi

temp: 4 x ~400m
- rest: walk back
- strike: midfoot, active dorsiflexion
- breathing: in:nose, out:mouth
- goal: every 400m in ~1m:29s

3. 0.26 mi in 1m:29s
- 10.5 mph, 5:43 min/mi

4. 0.26 mi in 1m:29s
- 10.5 mph, 5:43 min/mi

5. 0.26 mi in 1m:31s
- 10.1 mph, 5:57 min/mi

6. 0.25 mi in 1m:28s
- 10.4 mph, 5:45 min/mi

breathing in through nose, out through mouth is a good way to hold back on the 400's, but still go intense.. it's a good gauge at whether or not i'm at my goal tempo pace.

felt good, other than quads being tight/sore.

right big toenail feels weird.. it doesn't hurt, I can just "feel" it.. i've had this off and on ever since I "fixed it". hope it's not the nail growing underneath !! HEH !!



Food

3 PM

- 2 x wheat bread with peanut butter
- beet + tart cherry juice
- green tea
- blueberries
- banana



Food

5:30 PM

- almond joy
- beet + berry drink (premade)



Session: Evening

7:30 PM
- shoes: worn out NB XC900v2's (submax jumping shoes)

run:
- 3.16 mi in 21m25s
- 5k: 21m03s
- 1k: 3m46s
- 12-minute-test: 1.85mi
- 3mi: 20m20s
- splits: 6:17, 6:43, 7:23, 53s
- left rib cramp crept up @ 3/4ths left in the first mile, toughed it out through the end of the 2nd mile, basically disappeared come the 3rd mile, but was spent
- thought my 2nd mile was closer to 6:17 .. wanted to do 3 x 6:10's, fail

jumps:
- submax
- ~30 each, L-SLRVJ & R-SLRVJ
- easy 10'3"s - 10'4"s off L-SLRVJ
- hit a few 10'7"s on some harder jumps

run home:
- 0.5 mi in 3m:16s
- worked on arm action.. first time really doing this, believe it or not.
- need to practice this more, especially on my warmup/practice runs

here's an example of the arm action I was working on:
- http://www.adarq.org/800m-running-andor-conditioning/gait-analysis-videos/msg120947/#msg120947




quads dead.. left achilles area a bit sore.

happy about the 5k though, with that cramp still got 1.85 mi on the 12-minute test. I was aiming for near 2 mi, because soon I actually want to hit ~2m in 12 minutes.

i'd need to run 2 x 6min/mi for that.. that'd be a PR. my best so far is 1.96 miles in 12 minutes.. need to break that soon.

Ayeeeee me too! I'm trying to reset my godawful sleep schedule so I'm only gonna sleep 4 hours in naps today and hopefully go to bed at a reasonable time that isn't in the 3-5am range. I always feel like my brain works optimally the 3-4 hours after an all-nighter before the fatigue sets in.

daaym. insomniac club. my brain is working good but it's starting to get tired. fatigue is setting in hard right now.

i'm such a night person, it's a battle to try and sleep every night before 3 AM.

how long have you been sleeping in the 3-5AM range?

Dunno to what extent I buy into some people being "night owls", "early birds" (other than older people being more early birds). It's just a matter of lifestyle choices rather than an innate preference IMO.  It's so hard to push sleep cycles back when you've made a habit of going to bed late, but so easy to accidentally push them forward. I've been in the 3-5am range about a month (since school ended). But I almost always go to bed after 1am regardless. I don't really have a researched explanation for wanting to get up early, other than it would be "more natural" and trying something new. hopefully my body would function better in some way from getting up and going to bed at sunrise and sunset.

I remember you saying how you didn't like high top shoes for jumping, but I think you were a two foot jumper before. You think that you would do fine with high tops for one foot jumping? It seems like there's little to no dorsiflexion when you jump off one, so high tops shouldn't be a problem.

yo!

Well, I just don't like basketball shoes at all; high, mid, or low. If I have to wear basketball shoes, they would be low.

Alot of it is mental, I just hate how they feel. Some of it is physical; they are heavy, slow me down, and I don't like how my ankle feels in them when I jump maximally.

Plus, how can I run, then get my jumps in? I have to wear shoes that are strong enough for both, but light/proper enough to run in. So, this kind of defaults me to jumping in running shoes (more preferably, XC flats).

You make a good point regarding dorsi-flexion.

The biggest concern with jumping in XC flats, that i've experienced, is your feet themselves. Much easier to injure your heel, plantar fascia, toenails etc when jumping in such light shoes. However, when I dunked with DLRVJ, I was so adapted to my nike zoom waffle racers (XC flats) that I never had any issues, and DLRVJ is arguably much more intense on the feet/ankles than SLRVJ when it comes to jumping - especially with my side plant that I had, which had alot of 'ankle rolling'.

One thing I have wondered about is, whether or not I would get up higher in basketball shoes (if I just stuck with them completely), since they are so much stronger. It's possible, but, since all of my major PR's have come in XC flats AND they feel SO MUCH better to me, I just don't feel the need to experiment with basketball shoes anymore.

I think the highest I ever jumped in basketball shoes was a 10'10 touch.. a few months later, though stronger/more explosive, I hit 11' in XC flats.. haven't turned back since.

I think it makes even more sense though, that SLRVJ in XC flats will be better than DLRVJ in XC flats. Just less time on the ground, less of an intense lateral plant, less ankle mobility required, etc.

The last factor is $$. XC flats are CHEAP. My Nike Zoom Waffle Racers used to cost me 29-39$. Right now, my NB XC900's cost me 49-59$.

Since i'm not playing basketball, just jumping (and eventually dunking), I just don't see the need for the extra support/heavyness of basketball shoes.

pc!

I see. I actually bought a nike zoom lt streak 2's for jumping in 2014, which were track flats for sprinting I think, and they were actually really good. They didn't have much cushion and kept me low to the floor instead of having that mushy cushion that a lot of bball shoes have. They're completely worn out now though, so I've returned back to bball shoes. I may hop back onto these racing shoes soon though lol.

tons of coding today.. spent a few hours trying to fix something I broke via dependency hell problems.. that sucked. Then spent the rest of the day trying to incorporate my purescript bbcode parser into the forum.. made alot of progress.. got lots of stuff working. need to work on 'sub parsers' tomorrow, ie, the params that can go inside of font, color, etc.. right now it has bold, underline, italic, image, links, youtube, yada yada.. but no sub-parsing stuff for extra params. Then, once I get subparsing working, need to get emoticons working.. and finally need to get 'auto embedding', ie, if i want to add auto embedding of links so we don't have to wrap them in [ url ] (which we don't want to have to do).

At your peak as well as now how close was your RL slrvj to your LL version?  I peaked a few months ago and could do dunks w left leg and of course off two feet and my numbers were about:

Standing single leg left: 26
Standing single leg right: 27
Standing dl:   ~34
1 step dl LR  ~40
1 step dl RL   ~35
Multi step LR: ~45
Multi step RL:  ~35
Running sl left: ~36
Running sl right: ~29

I'm wondering if my lack of RL plant can be explained by the fact that my numbers really don't see to make much sense relative to each other...
