Well said! Australia has a similar culture of masculinity. It's not cool to be skinny, which is probably coz 60%+ of the population is classified as either overweight or obese. http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2016/02/24/australia-obesity-statistics_n_9154422.html

Same as if you video yourself dunking or lifting some people will criticize you but deep down it's mainly that their envious that they either don't have the confidence or athleticism to do the same feat.

Lol my dad hates compression gear too. I kinda agree that it's effeminate initally but you stop thinking of it in those terms because to us, well to me, i thought it was worth it for recovery benefits. Idont th ink it actually does much for recovery. I'm starting to come off the comrpession badbandwagon. i was a bit OTT with them tho, even wearing to bed and doubling up with compression shorts on top of compression pants etc. Just wrecks quiality of sleep i find and it's better to optimise for superior sleep and reap recovery benefits of that than to sleep uncomfortably
Making a new strength setpoint of 75/100/150 on OHP/BP/BS.

damn didn't know it was like that over there too .. probably not too many places in the world where being thin is as frowned upon as the US, so sucks that's the case for AU as well.

Being skinny/thin just bothers some men, so damn much. It's astonishing.. I'm sure most of them aren't envious at all, they look at you like you are just inferior & a disgrace to being a man.

When I look at Mo Farah or Kipchoge etc, I see power & strength. Other people see weakness, "refugee", "female", etc. Meanwhile these guys are freaks of nature athletically, and their training is on par with the toughest in the world. Just crazy how people's minds work.

ya there's this weird reaction from envious people .. not saying all people who "hate" or criticize are envious, some of them just genuinely think someone is stupid or inferior for doing whatever it is they are doing .. but for the truly envious ones, that reaction is just incredible to me. For example, if i'm out running and I see someone faster than me, which is extremely rare, i'd be happy af. That'd be exciting to me, i wouldn't be mad, jealous, annoyed .. Just like in dunking; when I was jumping high & landing some nice dunks, I didn't care at all if someone could jump higher or dunk better, in fact, it motivated me and made me excited. I'd also ask them, hey man want to be in my video?! For example, the lion swag video with the dude who could jump out of the gym.. I have a bunch of other videos where I feature people landing all kinds of dunks, simple ones to amazing ones. I guess I just don't identify at all with these "hater" types, they are mysterious to me.

In the words of Conor McGregor, man.. whada buncha fooqn biches.

haha.

these problems could be very much related to 50+ year old men.. :)

ya when I first put them on I thought, "man my legs look really thin in these".. but then I was also thought "damn these feel GOOD AF". So that was the end of that.. hah.

yeah I don't wear them for any of that.. to me they just feel really comfortable.

I've been wearing compression shorts for races, since I feel great in them, ie: they don't "flap around" like running shorts, especially when running shorts get soaked in sweat. So to me that's a big win. Also, I see guys like Mo & Kipchoge wearing them, that's why I tried them to begin with.. Kipchoge did breaking2 in a similar pair of shorts I recently purchased & he ran Berlin in them, and man they really feel amazing. I like that tight feel, similar to how I liked high socks. Seems like more runners are wearing compression shorts during races now, I don't think it gives you a boost, but it does feel more like you are running "naked", which is probably a big reason why people like them.. Not feeling your shorts flap around, is a big bonus.

For the compression pants, I wear those for my recovery / slow runs alot now.. Just makes my entire leg + calf feel good, and makes me keep it slower, because running in pants feels foreign to me.. so it's a way to remind myself, hey this is a slow session.

peace!!

felt slow/beat up this morning, but ran really good. winning.


10/26/2017

bw = 142
bw before bed last night = 145
soreness = calves slightly
aches/injuries = bottom of left & right big toe slightly - from hamstrings stretches yesterday i think (SHIT!)
cramping = none
morning quad flexibility = loose
morning hamstring flexibility = loose
morning calf flexibility = loose
feel = good but slightly sick

wakeup = 06:00 AM
:pissed:

diet:
06:00 AM: black coffee, 1 grapefruit, cup of coconut water
07:30 AM: workout: hard running + bw at park
- 3-sec dead hang ng pullups: BW x 8
- full dips: BW x 8
- 5-sec dead hang close grip chinups: BW x 5
- deep pushups on bars: BW x 15
- 5-sec dead hang wide pllups: BW x 3
- front bar dips: BW x 5
09:30 AM: 2% milk, 1/2 natalie's pink lemonade
11:00 AM: 1 saute'd huge yam (crazy sweet), 2 avocado, chicken skewer, sweet green tea, 2 small pieces of sourdough
- yam was ridiculous
04:00 PM: protein + water, 1/2 natalie's pink lemonade
05:45 PM: 1 cup coconut water, avocado
- needed some more fats
06:30 PM: workout: light mixed with speed
- dead
08:00 PM: 2% milk
09:00 PM: avocado, 2 x sourdough, kefir (omg), coconut water, high fiber oatmeal, sigis



stretch:
01:00 PM: light calves, light quads
04:15 PM: soleus during dishes
05:00 PM: everything, light stuff
09:15 PM: everything before bed



icing:



self massage:



leg drain:



workout: morning relaxed speed, not feeling too great (slightly sick), GREAT session: w/u-2.5, 1.41 mi / 2260k @ {5:32 + 2:21/5:41), 1 mi @ 5:39, 2 x 260m, c/d-2.5, no watch!!
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1247678350

slightly sick but, body fought it pretty good i think.. nothing major. didn't feel too fast early on during warmups, but then on a few strides before hitting the first 1.4 mi, i started feeling some power..

my goal was a hard (but relaxed) 1.4 mi @ an average of < 5:40 min/mi pace, surprising success, without looking at my watch at all.. I knew I was moving decent when some little kid on a bike tried to keep up with me and I smoked him, haha. That made me laugh & relax even more.

Then I finished with one more mile, which I wanted under 5:40 ..

I love not looking at my watch, it's the best decision i've made with running so far.. It really helps me focus on what my body wants to give me that day, instead of what I WANT my body to give me, which can be two very different things.. and when they are very different, it can become stressful -> tightening up more, fighting harder, etc..

Learning alot from researching these Kenyan runners. Absolutely love how they train & approach running.

wow, my stride freq was awesome on the 1.4! low 180's avg, never going above 188 for max. Exactly what I want.








TODO: 800's - cut down perhaps - mixed with trotting

- kinda

workout: evening relaxed speed, legs dead: 1.5 mi path - carved out 2 x 800m {wu-2:53/5:46, 2:38/5:16}, 2 x 420m {1:19.4/5:06, 1:29.5/5:49}, no watch, light jog recovery
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1248434756

pretty beat up by tonight, didn't have much in me. Happy about the 2 800's though .. first one (warmup) was @ 178 SPM! Second one was at 189 SPM. So both under 190 .. under 180 is pretty cool.









tmw = light recovery.

black carrera xc3's just arrived............ these are NOT the same shoe as the gold carrera xc3's. incredible. Also, they do run true to size, not big like the gold ones.. so, can't wear them. Sending them back and getting 12.5's.

Also, finally gave in and ordered a pair of endorphin racer v2's:





I figure, even if I don't like running in them, they will be great to walk around in.. look (and probably feel) pretty sick.

I have a feeling i'm going to enjoy running in them though.. these shoes are more built for road racing than the carrera's, so technically I should run better in them in road races.. who knows tho.

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:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed5VRE0lOXU

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.

pc

perfect timing.. saw this last night while watching NFL (american football). Alex Collins uses "irish dancing" to improve his footwork for football, and he's helped some 12 year old kid who got bullied because the kid loved irish dancing.

Well said! Australia has a similar culture of masculinity. It's not cool to be skinny, which is probably coz 60%+ of the population is classified as either overweight or obese. http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2016/02/24/australia-obesity-statistics_n_9154422.html

damn didn't know it was like that over there too .. probably not too many places in the world where being thin is as frowned upon as the US, so sucks that's the case for AU as well.

Being skinny/thin just bothers some men, so damn much. It's astonishing.. I'm sure most of them aren't envious at all, they look at you like you are just inferior & a disgrace to being a man.

When I look at Mo Farah or Kipchoge etc, I see power & strength. Other people see weakness, "refugee", "female", etc. Meanwhile these guys are freaks of nature athletically, and their training is on par with the toughest in the world. Just crazy how people's minds work.

Quote
Same as if you video yourself dunking or lifting some people will criticize you but deep down it's mainly that their envious that they either don't have the confidence or athleticism to do the same feat.

ya there's this weird reaction from envious people .. not saying all people who "hate" or criticize are envious, some of them just genuinely think someone is stupid or inferior for doing whatever it is they are doing .. but for the truly envious ones, that reaction is just incredible to me. For example, if i'm out running and I see someone faster than me, which is extremely rare, i'd be happy af. That'd be exciting to me, i wouldn't be mad, jealous, annoyed .. Just like in dunking; when I was jumping high & landing some nice dunks, I didn't care at all if someone could jump higher or dunk better, in fact, it motivated me and made me excited. I'd also ask them, hey man want to be in my video?! For example, the lion swag video with the dude who could jump out of the gym.. I have a bunch of other videos where I feature people landing all kinds of dunks, simple ones to amazing ones. I guess I just don't identify at all with these "hater" types, they are mysterious to me.

In the words of Conor McGregor, man.. whada buncha fooqn biches.

You're the man! If everyone possessed the same attitude as yours the world be such a more tolerant/better place.

hah thanks. :highfive: :ninja:

edited a video of all the clips together for YT, and video editor crashed on export & lost it.. will re-do it later. tons of software issues getting these clips up, the state of software is just a complete train wreck.

here's some stuff:

love how this photo came out:

10/28/2017

diet:
06:00 AM: quarter watermelon, black coffee, tea + 3 tspn cane sugar
08:00 AM: workout: track
08:00 AM: sipped some sweetened tea on and off
10:00 AM: finished sweetened tea, rxbar
11:00 AM: 2% milk, coconut water, grapefruit, tea + 5 tspn cane sugar
12:00 PM: saute'd huge yam in olive oil/salt/pepper, chicken skewer, coconut water
05:00 PM: water w/ 2 lemon, siggis, 2 x sourdough bread
08:00 PM: 2% milk + protein, water w/ 1 lemon, tea + 3 tspn cane sugar

not journaling today .. videos/photos wrecked me, due to the time wasted. also, out of nowhere sick af. been raining like crazy around here, and just felt ultra amp'd today and now coming off of it. after the amp'd feeling finally disappeared, noise won't stop running.

whatever.

right ear was clogged like crazy too, but interesting how some hot tea with sugar opened it up instantly.

141 this morning.

4 x 400m with 100m jog rest went well (mostly sub 5 effort it seems), cramped up afterwards during a very slow 1 mile, which was supposed to just be a chill segment before 8 x 200m with 100m jog rest.

so lame.

https://www.strava.com/activities/1250760845



the thing that throws everything a little off is the slow/careful accelerations, which is deliberate.. the "avg moving pace" is more accurate:





good effort.

edit: my rest is solid, two of those rest periods are under 60s !

44.6, 50.8, 66.2 !!! good stuff.

Well, my high volume week is done: put in 91.8 miles. Feel pretty good, felt like I handled it well. Cramping ruined two workouts (yesterday and today), so that sucks.

Here's the tentative plan for now. I have it detailed in my head even further - I mapped it all out during various lighter runs where I can think easily (lol), which I may edit in.

This coming week is lighter.

Week: 10/30/2017 - 11/05/2017
- 5k race on 11/04/2017
- Monday: complete rest
- Tuesday
-- morning: 2 miles hard (@ < 5:40 avg, maybe), 1 mile moderate
-- evening: 4 x 400m with 100m jog rest, 8 x 200m with 100m jog rest
- Wednesday:
-- morning: very light recovery run: 5+ miles
-- evening: very light recovery run: 5+ miles
- Thursday:
-- morning: 3 x 1 mile light (sub 6 though)
-- evening: 4 x 400m with 100m jog rest
- Friday:
-- morning: very light recovery run: <= 3 miles
-- evening: very light recovery run: <= 3 miles
- Saturday:
-- morning: 5k race, with emphasis on a hard 2 miles
-- evening: light long run
- Sunday: complete rest

Week: 11/06/2017 - 11/12/2017: high volume, no race

Week: 11/13/2017 - 11/19/2017: moderate volume, 5k race
- 5k race on 11/18/2017

Week: 11/20/2017 - 11/26/2017: moderate volume, more 5k races
- 5k race on 11/23/2017
- 5k race on 11/25/2017

Week: 11/27/2017 - 12/03/2017: moderate volume, 1 mile race
- 1-mile race on 12/02/2017

Week: 12/04/2017 - 12/10/2017: low volume, 1 mile race
- 1 mile race on 12/06/2017

Week: 12/11/2017 - 12/17/2017: low volume, 1 mile race, 5k race
- 1-mile race on 12/13/2017
- 5k race on 12/17

Deload until 12/31/2017

peace!
