aches = right abdominal/rib (cramp area) slightly
injuries = toenails hurting
standing desk (when on computer): not much
feel = tired
water = alot
mosquito bites: 0




Food

7 AM

- 2 x banana
- orange juice
- ~3 oz concentrated coffee



Session: Morning

9 AM
- late start..
- really wasn't feeling it.
- felt like i'd cramp up, ribs/stomach feeling weird
- shoes: nb 5000v2

warmup:
- felt dead

run: 2.75 mi in ~18:44
- ~6:50 pace
- cramped up in right abdominal/rib and left rib
- dead by 2.75



Food

10 AM

- big bowl of cheerios with 2% milk
- 2 x banana



Food

2 PM

- ~5 oz spinach salad with avacado, lemon, olive oil, mixed nuts, asiago cheese
- green tea
- 2 x banana





Session: Evening

6:30 PM

warmup: jump rope / walking

jump rope running: 2.6 mi in 44:40
- splits: 17:53, 15:58, 17:36 (0.6 mi)
- pretty cool .. keeps you on your toes the entire time - u don't have to try at all

jump rope running = jumping rope while running ...  :pokerface:
- lungs & legs = fine
- shoulders, calves, heart = working hard

calves a bit tight.. hope they are ok tomorrow.



Food

8 PM

- 2 x 2% milk
- 4 x banana



Food

10 PM

- pre-made beet juice drink
- chocolate pudding (bad idea)
- boost








note to self:
- updating through the day.
- consistency consistency .. consistency.
- stop being a pussy.
- forget about what you did earlier, the day before, the week before, the year before .. focus only on the current session

goals:
- wakeup @ 5 AM
- improve:
-- 100m
-- 200m
-- 400m
-- 1 KM
-- 12 minute test
-- 5 KM
-- L-SLRVJ
-- half squat, half RDL, calf raises, BW upper

potential run protocols:
- always warmup great
- very light stretching before
- light stretching after
- paced runs: pick a pace and hold it 100%
- hold-on-for-dear-life: pick a pace, try and maintain pace for as long as possible -> measure distance maintained
- 12-minute test
- 200, 400m, 1km, 1 mile repeats
- from salazar workouts slide:
-- 6 x mile repeats with 400m jog recovery
-- 20 x 200m, with or without jog recovery
-- 8-12 x 400m, with x-second (~60s) standing recovery

training:
- finish 5k sessions with some ~150-200m max sprints

5k:
- make miles 1 & 2 the same, instead of 2 & 3
- maximally sprint (~160m) at the end of every 5k (from 3.0 to 3.1) -> need to teach myself to always tap into every last MU

markers:
- repeatable 1m:15s 400m's with ~1 minute rest in between
- max 400 under 60s

future contests:
- 10/09/2016: would need to run ~18:30 5k to win
- 11/24/2016: would need to run ~16:30 5k to win
- 12/14/2016: would need to run ~4:40 mile (holiday 1-mile race) to win

cues:
- POSTURE! RUN TALL!
- SHORT GCT
- WHEN TIRED, SHORT GCT + GET STRIDE FREQ BACK ON TRACK
- HOLD HANDS PROPERLY - RELAXED
- STAY RELAXED

warning:
- ALWAYS WARMUP PROPERLY
- DO NOT OVERSTRETCH
- GET ENOUGH SLEEP

weird:
- CREATE IMAGINARY RUNNING FRIENDS & RUN WITH THEM

how come?
- HOW COME I CAN'T ADD ~20m A WEEK TO MY ~13+ MPH PACE?? :f

pre-run meals:
-
theories:
- Think "run beautiful" not "run hard"
-- ^^ has alot to do with how I strike the ground, breathe, don't tighten up, etc
- Really big gulping inhalations through the mouth, prior to a run, could help to get the lungs to wake up.
- Static (short-holds - 5-10s) stretching before running to help me relax, feel loose
- Less (good) fat / More carb = winning

 :ibrunning: :ibjumping: :motherofgod:

ahaha.. ya it would be weird. I bet the court is nowhere near the post-run area tho.

i probably have like 1% chance of landing a dunk after a 5k .... if i've been jumping. I haven't been jumping so .. I have more like a 0.1% chance. I'll bring my basketball though just in case. If anything i'll just get some jumps in for fun.

haha yeah I imagine it'd be hard the way you push yourself during a 5k. Would be a sweet vision though.

Bio: Morning

last night's sleep: 6 hours
last night fell asleep: ~11 PM
wakeup = 5 AM.
bw = 149 lb.
morning resting heart rate = didn't measure
soreness = none
aches = ribs slightly (left & right side)
injuries = 2 toenails turning black
standing desk (when on computer): not much
feel = decent
water = alot
mosquito bites: 0




Food

5:15 AM

- banana
- ~3 oz concentrated coffee



Session: Morning

6:30 AM

warmup:
- felt good, lots of bounce from jump rope the night prior

run: 3.1 mi in 31:01
- focused on the first 2 miles only
- splits: 5:57, 6:17 (feh)
- 12 minute test: 6:07 min/mi, 1.96 mi

again, slowing down at turns really kills me.. it's the single biggest thing I think I need to work on. I did a better job at picking it back up in the second mile but, slowing down at every turn takes a ton of valuable time off.

speed:
- 5 x ~97m
- max speed: ~16 mph @ what felt like ~75% effort damn, nice
1. 19.4s (5:50 min/mi) (max: 5:08)
2. 17.7s (5:11 min/mi) (max: 4:42)
3. 16.8s (4:49 min/mi) (max: 4:16)
4. 17.3s (4:53 min/mi) (max: 4:07)
5. 14.8s (4:23 min/mi) (max: 3:47)





i do a decent job at increasing my speed progressively... hehe!

- 4 x banana

Food

5 PM
- would have been 4 PM but, when i sliced through this watermelon, i knocked over a glass plate and it smashed .. then the watermelon fell on top of it and had glass shards in it..  :raging:
- hehe

- a big quarter (?) of a watermelon




Session: Stretching

6 PM

- stretching quads/hip flexors while walking dogs
- right hip flexor a bit more tight .. need to keep my eye on it



Session: Evening

7 PM
- felt crazy fast/bouncy .. like a spring

warmup
- springy

runs: 2 x ~1158m
- strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/749084188
- ribs/abdomen felt good - no sign of cramping
- was going to do 4 x 100m but, just being careful .. a bit achy in right hip/hip flexor and calves are tight (but also tight in a good way .. felt so strong in them during my runs)
1. 3:49.5 (5:18 min/mi)
2. 3:46.3 (5:12 min/mi)





happy about that !!  :ibrunning:

pc!

haha yeah I imagine it'd be hard the way you push yourself during a 5k. Would be a sweet vision though.

ya.. that was the initial plan: dunk, sprint, run.. but i've just been so obsessed with running lately (and some sprinting) that jumps have taken a back seat. I'm definitely getting stronger, bouncier, leaner, faster, better shape etc .. so it's possible my SLRVJ is still fairly decent.

but ya, after a 5k, i doubt i'd have much in my legs.. though, the speed work i'm doing after my 5k's lately is making my legs stronger, for sure.

back when i was jumping alot + running alot, I jumped VERY GOOD after trying to PR my 1 KM's .. but I never jumped nearly as good after trying to PR my 2 mile runs.. so 3.1 miles sounds even worse lmao.

i'll probably do some jumps even if it's just some fingertip touches ... dno tho.. I remember those courts were amazing.

should get some kewl pics at least.. :D

peace!

- 2-miles: 11:56
- splits: 5:53, 6:02 :raging: :raging: :raging:
- i probably could have gotten it .. but i actually wrecked myself right out of the start: I went really hard the first 200-300m, and since I felt like crap, it made me want to quit.. so by ~300m I was contemplating quitting.. then i snapped out of it.
- also ............. SPRINTING OUT OF EVERY TURN = WINNING .. even if it's only for a few seconds.
- I HAVE TO ADOPT that strategy every run.. that's what helped snap me back into a decent pace, every time I came out of a turn slower.



look at that massive drop in the beginning....  :o

so weird about the 'muscle pain' in the bottom of my left foot & my right heel.

the left foot happened as soon as i put on my running shoes (nb 5000v2's).. prior to that, no pain.. nothing all day. felt 100% fine. same with the right shin muscles. that's ODD.

the right heel "stinging" almost feels like I stepped on some glass.. maybe I did.

RACE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

only slept ~3 hours last night.. but still ran great/feel good today. nice.



10/23/2016

Bio: Morning

last night's sleep: ~3 hours
last night fell asleep: ~11 PM
- actual fell asleep around 1 AM
- woke up around 3 AM, took another hour or so for me to fall asleep again
- brutal
- brain racing
wakeup = 5 AM
bw = 150 lb.
morning resting heart rate = didn't measure
soreness = none
aches = none
injuries = 2 toenails turning black, bottom of right big-toe "burning" (calleous, from jump rope i think)
standing desk (when on computer): not much
feel = great but tired
water = alot
mosquito bites: 2



Food

5 AM
- in this order:

- banana
- lots of watermelon: a decent sized ~quarter
- plain english muffin



Session: Stretching

5:30 AM

- very light, hamstrings/quads/calves



Session: Morning Race

6:30 AM

warmup: brain tired from lack of sleep, body feeling crazy explosive
- body felt so explosive that it made me not care about being tired

race: 5k+ (3.3 mi) in 19:43
- strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/753546579/overview
- 7 AM
- behind someone on the starting line ... whatever.
- it's absolutely nuts how fast I get out, with so little effort.. after 10 strides I turn my head around and everyone is smoked.. this seems to happen every time lately. It would have happened last race too but I slowed down alot to maintain pace with the top guy. Kind of interesting..
- First ~1.5 miles I was ahead by "alot", couldn't see people near me when turning my head...
- EDIT: I actually kept looking back for the first 0.5-1 mile.. I slowed down, was hoping some people would just "show up".. but eventually I was just like - F it.. im going to just maintain a decent pace and if someone catches up, they catch up. It's soooo weird looking back in a race, when you're in front, and wondering where people are.. I literally think, am I going the wrong way? lmfao.
- but that's when everything changed!!! lmao. :raging:
- NOTE: confusing because there was simultaneously a 5k and 5 mile race going on......
- the people at the 5k turnaround area confused the hell out of me and I ended up running an extra ~0.1 mi .. I was literally running backwards going "duuuuude where do I turn for the 5k?!?!". I went probably ~0.5 mi past the turnaround, then had to run back and now catch up with the second place kid (14 year old, pretty fast, h.s. XC kid) who was also confused but making the proper turn. I confused him by not making the proper turn.. but there were no signs - and it was a really weird turn - a complete u-turn on the same side of the road (in the next lane). The people were apparently supposed to be holding up signs: "5k turn here".. but they weren't. The race director told me this after the race, when I mentioned it to her. It's all good, I wasn't mad or anything.. but it was very confusing.
- So anyway no we're mostly running side-by-side.. He tried "drafting behind me", so I kept swerving and I think he got the point and ran along side.. He tried to lose me quite a few times but I matched his pace and he'd back off.. I think he was "testing me". It was pretty cool, it was a legit race. Anyway, as we were nearing the final ~600m, he actually said to me "man it's been a great race" and we talked.. haha.. so we stayed side-by-side until the last ~100m when you could tell we were both saving energy for a final kick ... so we both go, and I managed to recruit all of my speed work.. I was really flying.. Ended up going from 5:55 pace at that instant, to 3:30 pace by the finish line. :ibrunning:

So I ended up getting first overall!!!!

- official time: 19:43

- unofficial strava time: (3.3 mi) 18:48  :personal-record:  :ibrunning:
- unofficial garmin time: (3.3 mi) 18:48  :personal-record: :ibrunning:
- unofficial endomondo time: (3.3 mi) 18:42  :personal-record: :ibrunning:
- first 1st place overall race finish  :personal-record: :ibrunning:

lool.

- splits: 5:49, 6:19 (the slowdown/confusion issue), 6:04, rest: (0.3 mi) ~5:33
- pace: 6:01 -> after that debacle, still almost sub 6 avg for the whole thing...... that's sick.. so basically, i hit sub 6 avg for 3.1.


"dude where do I turn around for teh 5k!!!".. you can see it here lmao!!





solid sprint at the end:



so, pretty happy.. was an awesome race.. my first REAL race - where I actually raced someone.. felt as good as I thought it would. competition++.

:personal-record:

I was hoping there would be a 17:xx person there .. Was hoping to try and match a faster pace. Man I think i'm there (or close) right now.

Apparently people really enjoyed the sprint finish between me & the 2nd place kid .. several people told me they enjoyed that, it was awesome, we looked like we were going so fast etc.. that's kind of cool.

By far the coolest thing was seeing my mom's facial expression when I told her I won first place overall, and showed her my trophy.. she absolutely loves the trophy, it's really sick. She was so surprised but happy.. haha. She's starting to realize i'm not kidding when I say I might eventually (several months away) start winning all of these local races. :wowthatwasnutswtf:

Trophy:







My nappy headed swag after the race:





Also ... I didn't sweat at all. LOLOL. Was nice and cool (sub 70 F).

Some little 10 year old kid came up to me and asked me all kinds of questions after.. I was like a "pro" to him. It was his first race and he got 2nd in his age group (for 5k) - and he ran in basketball shoes.. It was pretty hilarious.. but you can tell he's competitive because I saw him sprinting it out with another 10 year old for teh "photo finish".. Cool stuff.

Man that is awesome, when you say you won first place, does it mean you were the first person to cross the line or something else.
Excellent job with the competition. That jump looked good too.

Keep them PR's coming
 :highfive:  :goodjobbro:
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
-------------------------------------------------------------
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
------------------------------------------------------------------------

�Strength comes from the legs, Power comes from the torso and Speed comes from the arm.� � Al Vermeil
Arm also aids the legs in driving it down with power - seifullaah73

Congrats mate! One off-season when I was a junior my coach just had me run cross-country races for some bizarre reason. I remember one week when the top guys were away I led out for the first 2-3km, then had to slow down to let an older guy catch up because I realised I had no idea where the turnaround point was lol. Probably cost me 30-60sec! You've also beaten my all-time PR for 5k, I never cracked 19min.

Nice smooth looking SLRVJ!
