So quick story.. TLDR: scolded some college kids (like 40 of em`).

At the track this morning, where it seems every Thursday they have several "physical education/exercise" classes going on, in succession. So say like, 6-7 AM, 7-8 AM, 8-9 AM, 9-10 AM etc.

Anyway, over the last few weeks, i've just been astonished at how OBLIVIOUS these kids are.. when i'm on a track, I look both ways before entering/exiting, I don't want to get hit or hit someone, or cause someone to have to move etc.. just common courtesy. When i'm done doing an interval, I step off the track to the inside, or walk/trot off to lane 8 or so, and get out of everyone's way.

This is just common track etiquette.

Anyway, these college kids, of varying fitness levels, so not athletes, just students, have absolutely no etiquette. They are completely oblivious to anything going on around them, or they don't care.

I've had to cut sprints short because they are just standing in a big group, blocking ALL 8 LANES (doing nothing or drinking water etc), are you kidding me? I had to do that several times, and they never seem to learn or care. They just stand there like a flock of docks shitting all over the track, straight up disrespect.

To make things worse, there's a teacher there (coach/teacher) who is running the class, who seems to allow it to happen.

So anyway, on a 200m sprint, I just kind of "snapped" but in a smiling + "shocked laughing" kind of way. As I was coming in fast from a 200m sprint, I coasted through a small gap of the "massive blockage" of all 8 lanes, and just turned around and said:

"You kids are completely oblivious. It's incredible. I'm just shocked, you have absolutely no track etiquette or you simply do not care, either way, you're disrespecting the track."

So the coach/teacher, who is like a jacked s&c guy begins to "flip out on me", but it wasn't really a flip out .. I assumed it was from the start. So anyway, as he yells at me to "calm down, you aren't even supposed to be here", I say:

"Listen I know this is a class, I know you can tell me to leave at any time, but i'm just shocked that these kids seem to have absolutely no respect for the track. It's absolutely mind blowing."

So the coach goes: "Look dude just calm down. Consider this a PE class, you have to work around the students & be careful", something like that..

And I go:

"I completely understand that, and I do. I always stay out of your way. I just think that, if you see someone else putting in work on the track, as just general courtesy and track etiquette, you move off to the side instead of taking up all 8 lanes.

Look it's no problem, i'm fine, i'll stay out of your way."

So I walk off.. You can tell the coach/teacher was heated, but, more so from just like, an adrenaline rush. I think he understood what I was getting at perfectly, but it was just the reflex reaction to protect his students .. I probably came off pretty amp'd up and very direct. But I also shouldn't have just scolded those kids like that in front of him, should have gone up to him directly first. But in my mind, I guess I just wanted those kids (COLLEGE KIDS, LIKE 18-25 YEARS OLD) to feel some scathe, so that it really sinks in, and that in the future, they will be more aware AND also tell their friends to be aware, and spread some damn courtesy.

Anyway, like not even a minute afterwards, after he had sent those kids off to do a mile run .. I ran up to him and apologized. I introduced myself, he introduced himself, we shook hands, and we talked for a minute. Then at the end as i'm walking off & give him a nod, he's like "it was great meeting you Andrew!", & I basically said the same.

Furthermore, after that moment, those kids were much more conscious of me on the track & they didn't block it. He also brought them off of the track to talk to them, which seemed like an adjustment on his part.

So just a quick story.. in the end I think everyone learned something :D

But really, the moral of the story is just, be courteous and aware, it's really so simple.

Also really have to point out how cool/level headed the coach/teacher is.. I think most people would have kicked me off for interrupting a class like that.

FWIW, i'm an FAU alum with an exercise science degree.. so i'm not completely out of place by being there.

^^ maybe that is a glimpse into me being an "old  man" now, all these students just standing there listening, like i'm an adult.. or just an aggressive individual making a solid point. lulz.


REST DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf:


10/20/2017

bw = 141
bw before bed last night = 145
soreness = quads slightly
aches/injuries = minor right calf/lateral gastroc pull, right hip slightly
- right hip exacerbated by loaded calf stretches .. have some really nice stretch i've figured out when trying to target my calf pull.
cramping = none
morning quad flexibility = EXTREMELY loose
morning hamstring flexibility = loose
morning calf flexibility = loose
feel = good

wakeup = 06:30 AM


diet:
08:00 AM: one big saute'd sweet potato in olive oil/salt/light black pepper, 2% milk, 1/2 black tea, 2 x pickles
11:00 AM: workout: moderate walk
01:00 PM: 2% milk, coconut water
02:30 PM: chicken skewer, one huge saute'd sweet potato in olive oil/salt/light black pepper, kefir, water w/ lemon, 2 x pickle, piece of bread
06:45 PM: small cup of 2% milk
08:20 PM: avocado, 2 x grapefruit, few pieces of watermelon, cup of 2% milk, cup of coconut water


stretch:
07:30 AM: some loaded calf stretches
02:00 PM: soleus stretching
06:00 PM: everything light, hamstrings/quads mostly
- quads insanely flexible, literally no resistance when grabbing heel towards butt.. damn...
:wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ibrunning:
06:50 PM: soleus (in shoes) doing dishes
- ankles/calves are crazy flexible right now.. ridiculous.

body feels like a rubber band.



icing:
10:00 AM: right calf icing
03:00 PM: right calf icing
09:00 PM: right calf, left heel



leg drain:
04:00 PM: ~30 minutes
- legs needed it, they felt really beat up after that walk .. felt great after drain



workout: moderate intensity recovery walk: 6.x miles @ 13:XX, crazy fast in these carrera's, lots of wind, right calf felt fine
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1239103182

man that's a pretty impressive walking session for me.. legs felt really good. makes me hopeful for tomorrow, should have lots of power.

walking usually hits my heels hard, compared to running which doesn't hit my heels at all .. these carrera's are definitely less supportive in the sole, heel felt it earlier on than normal, but my pace was also consistently fast so..

tomorrow the plan is to warmup light, progressively pick up my intensity on some short intervals, see if i can hit a relaxed sub 5 pace without any issue in my calf, and if all of that checks out, i'll push the first mile then shut it down & coast the next 2.1. If that stuff doesn't check out though, i'll just coast the entire 3.1 and just enjoy myself.





felt crazy fast during my walk today, took a photo of the carrera's:

regarding the race tomorrow, whether should be rainy, humid, not too hot, and crazy windy - but the initial ~1.5 mi might be a tail wind  :headbang:

some stuff from last year's race:

http://www.adarq.org/progress-journals-experimental-routines/adarq's-journal/msg125952/#msg125952

https://www.strava.com/activities/745322722/overview



very similar to my last race actually ... except 9 seconds slower for the first mile.

feel pretty good right now, calf feels fine unless i manually stretch it .. so tomorrow it'll probably be good. if it gives me any signs of not being good, will just trot it out.

it's funny, if I were to hit these splits:
1. 5:00
2. 6:30
3. 6:30

that'd be 18 over 3, plus ~30-40s over 0.1 .. so an 18:30-18:40 5k, if I run a 5k like a "1 mile test" + "2 mile cooldown".. lmfao.

if I hit these splits:
1. 5:00
2. 6:15
3. 6:15

that's 17:30 over 3, close to sub 18.

if I hit these splits:
1. 5:00
2. 6:00
3. 6:00

that's 17:00 over 3...

that's pretty funny..

imagine hitting like:
1. 4:30
2. 6:00
3. 6:00

16:30 over 3, probably sub 17 for 5k.

hah.

1 mile hard, 2 mile cooldown could be a winning strategy locally. that's hilarious.

love how this came out, photo is ~5 minutes after teh race:





quick recap of race related stuff.

https://www.strava.com/activities/1240445005/overview

http://www.splitsecondtiming.com/results/2017/schott2017.php
- official results
- nice typo on their results: "5K Raceesults"  :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm:

19:21 for 5k official, I think? 2nd overall.

Schott Communities 5k Race: 2nd overall, 19:21 official I think? mile-1 (hard, by myself, 5:27), miles-2/3 ("cooldown" lmao, 6:23, 6:37) ::: no watch, rain, puddles.

the "really fast guys" (16:XX) weren't there, so felt good and decided to just hit a hard first mile, not knowing if anyone could keep up. Ended up hitting 5:27 for that mile, happy about it, definitely not a max effort, but was really hoping to stay shoulder to shoulder w/ someone crazy fast. The guy who normally wins was there, but not running unfortunately. I went up and talked to him after, he said he hurt his knee 3 weeks ago, so that sucks.

got a really nice "trophy" - a painting by someone from the "schott community", which is a community dedicated to helping people with disabilities.. the painting is really sick.

at ~1 mile, someone at a water station was like, "yeaaah first place keep it up!!" and i was like, "thanks, not for long though.." lmfao. Around ~1.5+ the guy who won first overall caught me and just kept his ~6:00 min/mi pace, and he went on to win.

I had a solid 2nd it seemed like, so just kept trying to relax and coast it out.. these 2 "cooldown miles" felt better than last week, but I think alot of that has to do with mindset: I wasn't disappointed in trying to keep up with #1 etc, my goal was completely different (hard 1, 2 relax), so it actually felt better mentally. It also turned out to be better splits for mile #2 & #3 than last week.

I didn't feel amazing when warming up, felt a bit dead.. which sucks considering how good I felt yesterday. So I knew my "bounce" wasn't there like I was expecting.

regardless, happy about it.

not going to race next week, going to just relax and get more 1-mile focus training in.







I need to get my "idle pace" (that pace I hit in my "cooldown miles") to 6:00 min/mi ... .. i was definitely feeling it after that mile, but, since i stopped at a mile and didn't keep it going, I was way more relaxed/comfortable than last race.. so if I could have gotten my last 2 miles to be relaxed 6:00 min/mi's, i'd still have sub 6 average over 3.1 basically.. and i'd be able to relax still in the last two.[/b]

 :ibrunning: :ibrunning:


post race meal, provided by the event:










this photo has a funny story to it:



Quote
Quick story.. #tldr, this is Gene #Witkowski.. if you do #running races in #florida, this is the guy who most likely certified that course for #usatf... 💪 saw the bumper stickers on this van, made me lol, snapped a few #photos, then I hear this voice say "that's my car you're taking photos of", so i start cracking up and ask him about some of them.. so we started talking #politics, lots of head shaking on both our parts, basically we agreed that everything is a mess... 😎 anyway he told me all about the usatf certification process and a little about his time in the #military #okinawa #veteran #war #marines #ww2. If you see a van driving around at 4am on the wrong side of the road, that's probably Gene... lmfao. #gooddude #runningstories

he had "blue lives matter" and "4 died hillary lied" bumper stickers.. he also had some more normal ones. anyway, i didn't mention it in there but, I asked him about Trump.. he just kept shaking his head looking down, and i started laughing, and he just kept shaking his head, until finally he said "it's just a mess". lmfao :/

also, at the end of our convo, he said he had to go, he had another race to attend. i'm like, can i get a photo of you, and he kind of was like "nah", but i literally said, "dude. you're the guy behind all of these course certifications, and no one knows it. i'd love to put up a photo and let people know." .. then he basically lit up, put his trunk down so the bumper stickers would be in the photo, and posed like he did in that photo, with a big smile on his face. hehe.

edit:

some stats from endomondo, "best distances", love this feature:

put this in here: just to show that was my best overall 5k from a consistency standpoint, still like 3rd best 5k .. was in the lead the whole time and just ran my own race .. so didn't blow myself out early in the first mile: also ran at night.. the only 5k i've ever run at night.. that probably has alot to do with it actually heh. that race is too dark for me without my glasses though, that's why i won't do it again.

10/23/2017

bw = 144
- stuff in me.
bw before bed last night = 147
soreness = none
aches/injuries = right shin slightly
cramping = during cooldown of workout #1
morning quad flexibility = loose
morning hamstring flexibility = loose
morning calf flexibility = loose
feel = tired

wakeup = 05:30 AM


diet:
05:30 AM: milky coffee espresso drink lmao, coconut water, grapefruit
06:30 AM: workout: running + bw (at park)
- 3-sec dead hang ng pullups: BW x 6
- full dips: BW x 6
- 3-sec dead hang ng chinups: BW x 6
- pushups on parallel bars: BW x 10
- 3-sec dead hang pullups: BW x 3
- front bar dips: BW x 6
09:00 AM: 2% milk, coconut water
10:00 AM: rxbar
11:00 AM: big saute'd yam, chicken skewer, 3 x pickles, sweet green tea
01:00 AM: coconut water
04:30 PM: avocado, watermelon
05:00 PM: water w/ lemon
05:30 PM: protein + water
06:30 PM: workout: light running mixed with fast speed
- amazing session
08:30 PM: protein + water, coconut water
09:30 PM: 2 x instant high fiber oatmeal, water w/ lemon, brie by itself
- brie tasted exceptional, must be very hungry
- ran out of food basically..
- all i have is a yam, pickles, grapefruit, avocado, oatmeal, cereal, and protein powder left.. lol
- i guess that's alot
- no milk/chicken/etc though


stretch:
05:15 PM: soleus during dishes



icing:



self massage:



leg drain:



workout: morning mile repeats: ~2 mi mixed w/u, 4 x 1-mi w/ 0.5 mi recovery {5:50, 5:52, 5:59, 6:22}, 2 x 260m {5:01 mm, 4:51 mm}, cooldown (cramp lol)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1243326591

decent session. wanted all four of those miles to be sub 6, but 4th one i just wimped out.

tonight will be some light work.

probably going to do km repeats wednesday evening at the track, at a much faster pace.

one observation:

mile 1: 5:50, stride freq = 186, stride length = 1.48
mile 2: 5:52, stride freq = 185, stride length = 1.48
mile 3: 5:59, stride freq = 188, stride length = 1.43
mile 4: 6:22, stride freq = 181, stride length = 1.39

stride length really disappearing in miles 3 & 4, that early power just vanishes.

one thing about my running, i feel way different initially .. i have way more "pop" early on, then it just disappears. To me that seems like how i'm built AND my fitness. Need to do more mile repeats & longer runs.

looking to put in near 100 miles this week, on 4 days training, with some very light/short workouts on off days, just to loosen up my legs.



workout: evening fast speed & soft running in between: 1km path, carved out sections of 420m x 4 (wu-85.5/5:24, 76.9/4:54, 76.8/4:52, 77.7/4:55), 355m x 2 (64.8/4:50, 64.9/4:43) :: lots of "best paces" in 4:2X - nice
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1244126740

so in between those intervals, ran really soft/slow, like 12:XX min/mi slow, and so soft I could rarely hear my feet.

going from that to speed, felt really good.

safe acceleration due to my right calf - which feels fine.. just being careful, no sprinting out of the start.

avg moving paces of everything was lower, 4:2X-4:4X .. nice. really felt like i was moving.





man .. didn't feel too fast warming up, then pulled that speed out.. wtf? that's pretty decent.

good sign!

didn't mention this yesterday, so doing so in a post by itself.

yesterday morning, on my way to run, felt a slight feeling in my throat .. after my morning session, felt my throat a little bit sore, but it went away. At night, after my evening run, started feeling it a little more. Anyway, woke up at 4:30 AM with it very sore.

just mentioning here because, prior to yesterday, I had a rest day .. so it wasn't like I was pushing myself hard the day before. Two major dietary change I made, was: eating a huge bowl of cereal, adding tons of honey. Beyond that, I did bite my fingernails that day (like pretty much every day). Finally, though it was hot yesterday, the morning & night were a bit cooler than normal, which had me feeling a bit of a change.

i'm not sure if i'm actually getting sick or not, no other symptoms yet. Usually when I get just a sore throat, I blame my fingernail biting .. it also often turns into a real cold/sickness.

had some black tea + cane sugar, and a lozenge.. might need to get some throat spray.

hoping it doesn't get worse though, hate sore throats. Always fearful of it turning into strep, which I had alot of in middle school. man strep sucks.

edit: oh also, i've made my throat sore from running too btw.. just from the hard breathing & water loss I imagine. I didn't mention that first though, because on the way to my morning run, I felt it.. so no hard breathing yet. But that's always a possible culprit, that air intake with water loss can really hit the throat hard, make it more susceptible to something. I've had minor sore throats a few months ago, that disappear quick, those seemed more related to that.

workout: morning ultra light recovery #1: 3 miles @ ninja pace (12:XX-13:XX) :: ninja pace becomes forefoot

not trying to run forefoot .. but in the process of trying to not make any noise, my toes activate more, and i hit forefoot more, with less heel drop (easier to do with such a slow pace). I find this very interesting.. going to keep experimenting with it, especially on a recovery day.



workout: ultra light recovery #2: 3 miles @ ninja pace (11:4X-11-5X) :: faster in Carrera's, more bounce, lighter

so weird thing..

These Saucony Carrera XC 3's feel a little too big. I ordered the same size as my Saucony Shay XC 4's, but the Carrera's are just a tad bit bigger and I think it's bothering me.

So I just ordered the same shoe, but the black version, in size 12.. Turns out, the black shoe - mind you - the "same" shoe + version - just a different color, is 3.7 oz versus the one i've been wearing which is 4.4 oz..... I love ultra light shoes, so this is great news. Just so weird that the same shoe + version, is way lighter in the black color. Really hoping these size 12's fit perfect.

3.7 oz vs 4.4 oz is an enormous difference.

I have NB MRC 5000 v2's and those are ~3.4 oz or so.. Unreal how light they are, yet they are strong/supportive. I just don't run in them because of the mushy feel & the heel elevation. I like flat, hard soles.



right glute med a bit sore after that 2nd "recovery" run fml :)
- those standing single leg abductions (which I normally do) are probably the culprit.. those are intense on the small muscles of the hip. I mean I can feel it in the exact spot if i do one right now. I think I just taxed it and that ninja running taxed it more. lame. :pissed:

wtf? how is the black pair of the same shoe, 3.7 oz vs the shoe I recently purchase, 4.4 oz? It's the same shoe ... same version. That's nuts.

Just ordered the black pair of carrera xc3's, but size 12 not 12.5. I just feel like something is off in these 12.5's, feels just a tad bit too big.




HHAHAHAHAHAHA.. my conversation in a saucony live chat, about shoes.. Jason was nice, but he must be lol'n a bit.

Chat session started at 16:10:54
Please be patient while you are being connected with an operator ...
You are now chatting with Jason S. How may I help you today?
Jason S:Hi Andrew!
Jason S:How may I help you today?
Andrew:Hi. I have a question about the Carrera XC3's. I'm a size 12, but in the Saucony Shay XC 4's i'm a 12.5. If I wear size 12, my toenails get destroyed, so I need that half size bigger for the Shay's. I just purchased the Carrera XC3's, figuring the 12.5's would be pretty much the same size as the Shay's. However, they actually seem SLIGHTLY bigger than the Shay's, and even though i'm fast in them, something just feels wrong/off. I'm thinking about ordering a size 12 in the Carrera's, this one specifically: http://www.saucony.com/en/carrera-xc3-flat/29935M.html
Andrew:Hey!
Andrew:^^ So, i'm not sure if there's a shoe expert that can give me some extra guidance/ideas about the fit of the Carrera's.
Jason S:The Carreras generally fit true to size so I would suggest getting a size 12 if that is what you normally wear.
Andrew:Alright cool thanks. What's the return policy for that? I mean I can just try them on and walk around with them in the house etc right, and if they feel too small, I can return them for 12.5's?
Andrew:(also I have one more question after that one)
Jason S:Here is our return policy info http://www.saucony.com/en/content?csrname=szymanja&caid=cs-returns-exchanges
Jason S:So yea, around the house would be just fine
Andrew:right I guess i'm just wondering about unworn.. that includes just trying them on correct?
Andrew:ok cool .. sorry just wondered about that.
Jason S:Sure.
Andrew:ok so, last question. The pair of 12.5's i ordered were these: http://www.saucony.com/en/content?csrname=szymanja&caid=cs-returns-exchanges
Andrew:are those carrera xc3's? or just xc's? I thought they were xc3's ... but when I look at the first link I gave you (http://www.saucony.com/en/carrera-xc3-flat/29935M.html), these are actually significantly lighter and say XC 3 ... so not sure which version I actually ordered initially, and if they are different from the ones i'm about to order right now.
Andrew:ie, 3.7 oz for the black xc3's, 4.4 oz for the yellow-ish ones
Jason S:Yes they are but the weights have changed a bit,
Andrew:ah interesting.. i mean 3.7 oz sounds more appealing to me anyway. the black shoe just also looks a little different.
Andrew:i guess i will order those, size 12, and try them out
Andrew:"M" for width, medium, is the normal width?
Andrew:sorry tons of questions.. hard ordering shoes online :f
Jason S:Yes, normal width
Andrew:cool thanks! and I guess, do you have any idea why the weight is different though? 3.7 oz vs 4.4 oz is an enormous difference, for the same shoe.
Andrew:i mean I don't get it, but just wondering.. I prefer the 3.7 oz so this is actually more exciting.
Jason S:I do not, that is just part of the development teams design.
Andrew:is there any way for me to send them an email for a question like that? I mean i'm just genuinely curious.. do they have some kind of dev/engineering team contact info?
Jason S:sure, you can email in at customerservice@Saucony.com
Andrew:ok cool Jason, thanks so much for your patience & help.
Andrew:have a good one!

My dad's new "thing" with my manliness:

He seems to hate the fact that i'm wearing compression shorts & pants. I think it really bugs him. He's made statements such as the following:
- those pants look really funny, if a bunch of Harley drivers see you in those pants they would laugh
- lots of people are wearing those compression shorts, female tennis players for example, wear them under their skirts

As if I give a fu*k about what a Harley driver thinks of me, or anyone for that matter.

I mean we don't talk much, but you can tell it bothers him .. just like when i'm skinny, it REALLY bothers him (and bothered him when I was growing up, high school, college, dunking etc).

Also FWIW, his father really damaged him with stuff like that.. But he's unable to recognize it.

Just thought i'd do a special post on that, because to me that's just some serious weakness on his part.

Also, I think it's important to shatter any inhibition from ones training in public, etc.. like how you may look, what you are doing may look funny to people etc.. If it's for the better, if it's effective etc, you just have to kill that inhibition.

I remember way back, when I was dunking pretty impressively, I had a bad session at some street court. Some dude actually flipped out on me, just out of nowhere saying "man you can't dunk for shit, why do you have a camera out here" etc etc.. For some reason, it really bothered him that I had the audacity to film myself trying to dunk at this court.. Keep in mind, I was actually a few courts down from him. Anyway, a few weeks later I saw him at my favorite indoor gym, and I could see him mirin' from afar, as I absolutely crushed this exact dunk session:

He didn't say shit to me that day..

Anyway, I guess what i'm getting at is, don't let other people's insecurities or weakness inhibit you at all.. Also don't let the thought of what people might think inhibit you at all either.

Just felt like mentioning that.. It's interesting to me.. It also bothers me because I know lots of kids & such fall victim to people like this, or their own thoughts about what people might think etc.
