good session. breaking in my new spikes (NB LD5000v5's). feel really good. actually feel a little big, which is funny considering I thought they felt small before actually running in them.







solid stuff. need to eventually turn that into several sub5's. that's the goal. already some nice improvement over last session. Also good considering my quads were toast - didn't think i'd even be able to do the workout, could feel them tightening up during the warmup, but then it became manageable.

You ran 15 miles in new spikes? That seems painful.

Nah they are built for distance on the track (5k-10k etc), felt great. I definitely couldn't do that in my NB 800v3's - calves would be dead after a few miles.

Also ran 10 miles in them, switched them for my normal running shoes after that. That felt weird.

After my latest minor hip flexor sprain where I attempted a box jump using stairs and that quick contraction of the hip caused a little pull that it pained and the next day it was painful to go to partial squat position, which soon healed quick as it wasn't as serious of a pull, but this made me realize something and it's related to your question in some way about whether messing with an injury because of pain and therefore either help it or make it worse was innate to us or not. When I felt the pain in my hip flexor, the natural reaction like most human beings is that your hands quickly go to the point of pain, whether you twisted an ankle, hurt your shoulder the innate thing is to hold it with your hands, to protect it, which i think is what is innate to us as human beings.

But what follows is not innate but due to our understanding whether right or wrong, which in our case is that when it causes pain and our hands are already on the painful spot, it's almost impossible to take your hand away, but rather, like when we were little and when we hurt our knees we would rub it to make pain go away in the same way but with a lot more knowledge but lack of understanding of that knowledge we rub, massage to try and make pain go away, cos we don't like pain, we try and remove pain and that mixed with the understanding of myofascial release using foam rollers through the pain, causes to massage through the pain and voila make it worse or maybe make it better.

So the hand quickly moving to the point of pain seems to be an innate/natural reaction but what comes after is our understanding and I think this may be the same with animals that they would like cats lick the sore paw or something similar but they lack logical sense they use instinct and experience unlike humans we use common sense, well our understanding of common sense.

 :highfive:

i like that. great way to frame it. i also love the cat licking paw/dog licking paw analogy. so we too have that "licking paw" reflex but, armed with more knowledge, we intensify it, which can make things better or worse -> but our goal is always to make it better, so if it turns out worse -> complete opposite effect: that obviously implies that the extra knowledge or the application of it was used incorrectly etc.

also i was thinking the other day, what would be the equiv of "massage/myofascial release/etc", to a caveman. I wonder if it would be something like this:
- bug bites & just general itching would result in some kind of massage .. mosquitos love biting the legs/calves/ankles!
- lying/sleeping on hard surfaces, climbing trees

would be funny if like, the evolution of massage for homosapiens dated back to insect bites. i'm sure our ancestors got "lit the fu*k up" back then .. constant scratching / rubbing -> some form of massage. lool. Maybe we get "tighter" without as many insect bites or general itchiness. :ninja: :ninja: :ninja: I'm sure you could still test that idea in some parts of the world unfortunately.

i'm just joking (for the most part) but, there's all of these little evolutionary cause/effect systems that just disappear in the modern world.

In regards to how the world is becoming modern day by day, technology advancing day by day, more chemicals being made, food becoming less natural, before man used to move around a lot but now since technology has evolved, everything, well nearly everything is within our reach, I'm sorry to say it but we have become less accustomed to making a lot of effort, as comfort and ease of transport has increased the effort decreases and this would lead to a lot of sitting around a lot of times, instead of a couple of centuries ago, when transport was done by foot, if you look at the other countries, which eat more healthy, natural foods and they have to travel a lot. I think this is where injuries happen when humans move around less then usual then the muscles adapt and the next generation would be adapted to that situation and therefore can lead to more need for massages and tight muscles. My 2 cents.

My 2 cents.

ya the key factor you mentioned: "move around less". It's interesting how much less we move around. Compare that to say, children in Kenya who walk/run 3-6 miles to school every day, stuff like that. In the US, you walk 100 ft to your bus stop, then get carried there. This has it's benefits and drawbacks, more benefits than drawbacks IMHO - you can always add supplemental movement (exercise) into the equation. But it just is interesting how much less we move in general, and how much less certain populations/nations move in comparison to each other.

peace!

The naples half tomorrow (~2 hours away?) has prize money for age groups, that's awesome. $100 per age group and $500 if you break the course record. Here are the CR's:

ultra relay prep for tomorrow!

none, just try to survive. Have gatorade, water, lunch, bananas, etc. eheh.

going to be very cold the entire time, which is kind of cool. should be interesting.

6 hour relay race: each member runs 1.24 miles then rests until the other 3 members complete their laps, non-stop as many times as possible within 6 hours.

should be nuts.. need to wakeup at 4 AM, and be there by 5 AM. Race starts at 6 AM. HEH!!!!!!

feel good other than my left calf/hamstring insertion, a bit tight. lame.

Vista View Ultra 360 Relay: Our team (Loco Rio) got men's #1 (44 laps? @ 1.25 mi per lap)! Women's team got #1 also! 11 x 1.25 miles. 7th overall on horse trail (5:54 min/mi pace) on the hilly path - on my last lap - nice.

Stepped on a rock real hard in the first lap, on a downhill in a concrete gutter. Hurt pretty bad when walking, but not much when running - thankfully. The "pain of running" helped drown it out, and there was lots of soft mulch which also helped. Was really worried about it initially. About to ice it.

Apparently these were my splits, pace via running calculator:

7:15 05:48:10 // 5:47 min/mi

2 x sub6, 5 x very close to sub6. 9.25 miles @ ~6 with recovery in between. pretty cool.






















btw .. a 60 year old won the individual race, incredible. 31 laps. Last year's winner had like 42, he's a pro, but he's also like 40 or so? This dude is 60 & dropped 31 laps. 31 x 1.25 miles. pretty sick. seemed like a cool/weird dude haha.

The team results:

http://www.splitsecondtiming.com/results/2018/vistateam2018.php

#2, #3, and #4 were in a real battle .. that was pretty close.

we fell short of our goal of 46, but some of that is due to people playing it conservative - to be safe. I didn't play it conservative at all. I just went out hard every time and figured, who cares, let's get it. Some of the laps were really rough and I noticed I was breathing harder than every single person I past (blazed by).. so that was interesting.

On my very last lap, the one I pushed really hard, I was making lots of yelling-ish noises. Just did so naturally. In order to keep that pace, I had to just "grunt-bark" from pretty much 0.50 to 1.25.. It was really loud but it helped me keep turning on the turbo boost.

This is probably a good sign leading up to March 24th's half marathon .. I really think I can hang with those 5:55-6:05 dudes who normally win it. I should be in even better shape by then too, so ... looking to shock some people & WIN in my back yard.

:D

I think they took lots of photos.. should have some good ones.

oh .. I ran with my glasses the entire time as well.. after I wrecked my right heel in the first lap, I just couldn't risk not being able to see another rock.. I had my glasses on when I hit it, but I didn't have my headlamp angled downward - didn't know it could move. so I ran with my glasses. hah.
