Hey man, great post and thought maybe I could add my 2 cents in this but based off my perspective as we all are different.

That mentality of giving certain people credits over others seems to be a selective kind of thing. I hope I word this out right else it's my neck lol.

since we all are different, we all different ideologies, thinking process, logical reasoning too. by selective I mean that based on their reasoning they decided who's morale they lift and who is already doing well that he is not in need of upliftment such as the people lost in the crowd who people don't recognize. People who win get automatic mentions. But second and third and so on don't get much recognition unless some people according to their logic to recognize.

will continue later....

yup, great point & well said. completely get that side of it.

After this morning's run, decided to not sign up for the Weston July 4th 5k!

Should be a fast race, wanted to really push it there and beat some folks, but... AERS AELS AETS AE*S squad. Legs (quads) just too "toast" to risk pushing the limit on.

Not too many races in July/August, so really wanted to get that one in. My 800m bro linked me to a possible track meet on July 14th though, about to look into that!

Also, in the context of recent discussions, my 800m friend seems to not fit that weird-mode that we were talking about, not one bit. This dude is legit. You beat him he doesn't go run off crying/ignoring you etc, he tells you when the next race/meet is that he's going to and goes "C'MON MAN LETS GO!!" .. Love that mentality. That's why he's almost sub2:00 for the 800m @ 50 years old......... lmao. BEAST. AS. FU*K. :ninja:

continuation....

So with the people and their selective reasoning to give certain people shout outs. This creates something known as (or maybe I just made it up now) psychological clash. Some one who runs to become good and get recognition to boost their morale and continue to thrive off this, but if they never get that recognition it can lower their morale and then their reasoning will be something completely different, "They don't like me" so the result dislike for that person and he stops competiting or "That guy is racist he is praising a white guy but not me" and then you have result of that thinking.

These whispers or suggestions we get because of someone's action can be very dangerous for certain people. But the person who made that shout out for one person is not aware of the other people's thought, something similar to out of sight out of mind then nothing to ponder over, some are aware and they could have certain reasons for not liking but stereotypes cannot be made for everyone. who knows when we race and beat someone, it could cause a suggestion in that losers mind to hate the winners or maybe cause him to work harder, same as a person who doesn't get noticed ever works hard to get the recognition like in boxing knock the guy out to force the recognition and take control out of the judges.

wow that turned quite dark  :ninja:, but all I am saying is different people, different thought process and therefore different decisions not aware of the result of certain actions as they are not psychic.

Side note: this can lead to depression for some people or social anxiety as they feel they are being left out or evaded and so on and on, power of the mind.

I will stop here.

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

light day!

the blisters on my big toes are really annoying .. popped them today, they were getting huge. got huge again after tonight's run.

on my way to my evening grass run, some kid(s) shot at me with a pellet gun - it zipped in front of me about knee level.. confronted them about it.





07/03/2018

bw = 143
bw before bed last night = ?
soreness = quads slightly
aches/injuries = left ankle/achilles perhaps barely/slightly, two NASTY blisters on both of my big toes, post-evening-run: right ankle from crossing the street & stepping in a pothole of thick grass
calves painful to touch/massage = always (right especially)
cramping = none
morning quad flexibility = loose
morning hamstring flexibility = loose, clicked less today
morning calf flexibility = loose, less thick!
morning adductor flexibility = loose
toenails: a little better, 2 on left foot, 2 on right (black)
feel = great
hours sleep: 7.5

wakeup = 08:00 AM

sub5 mile or sub3 km splits in 2018: 3 (mi) + 1 (km) = 4 of 50 :ibrunning:

data collected throughout the day when I have my watch on:
HR low: 37
HR high: ?

log:
08:15 AM: food: rxbar, water
09:00 AM: workout: light progression (grass/dirt/rocks, quads still sore): 1h @ 11:30 to 8:03 ::: legs too dead to do the july 4th 5k, all good tho, will keep it light until recovered
10:00 AM: food: grapefruit juice, banana, rxbar, water
01:00 PM: food: honey chipotle cashews, banana, chocolates, water
04:00 PM: food: chocolates, water
05:30 PM: food: rxbar, water
06:30 PM: food: trail mix bar, water
07:15 PM: workout: very light progression (grass): 1h15m @ 10:41 to 7:48
09:00 PM: food: chicken tortilla soup, popcorn chicken, beet juice, chocolate, water

just way too risky to do a 5k tmw. quads too tight/sore. they definitely improved quite a bit but still not 100%.

maybe there's a race this weekend, dno yet. don't think there is but we'll see.

You work extremely hard and have a lot of dedication. You are more of a loner type: you are clearly not doing this as a social thing. I think most people can't connect or understand that and they incorrectly deduce that you are doing it for recognition so they intentionally withold it from you. And people also dislike what is outside their understanding, making them less likely to try to connect with or reward you for your efforts. Just keep doing you man.

good stuff.

specific to what caused me to post that little rant, I just don't get the psychology of it. Those 2 guys & myself, are probably the only ones who "doubled" that day. They walked, cool. I raced, cool. They got a special mention for whatever reason, I didn't. Again, wasn't expecting a shoutout to *anyone*, but once I saw that, I found it a bit odd. I actually know the guy who times that event, the account that posted that message/photo (which he manages). We are pretty cool, he's a great guy. For the second race, I saw him and came over to give him a handshake and he said "long time no see!" (eluding to seeing me in the first race).

Anyway, i'm fine being a ghost.

ghost or not tho, def found it odd.

that's an interesting perspective.

i mean if I perceived someone as doing something solely for recognition, i'd probably be careful not to over-supply it. I'd def give credit where credit is due though. So I guess if someone had that perception of me, could make sense. I'd be surprised if *alot* of people had that perception of me though.. i'm pretty much a ghost who shows up to races and tries to beat everyone - LMAO.

Quote
And people also dislike what is outside their understanding, making them less likely to try to connect with or reward you for your efforts.

That's been a somewhat common theme. I mean, throughout my life, people always think i'm "mysterious" (irl, work, school etc). I'm really not, i'm very open/transparent about things hah. I mean this forum as an example, some of my social media accounts. I don't go do "social things" though, for the most part. If I do, it's me dragging myself to do it, almost like a be-normal exercise.

def a loner type. I usually get "derailed" a bit when I stop embracing it.

Quote
Just keep doing you man.

of course. hah!

ya i'm good. love being a ghost. just need to win more, because winning is fun! hah.

I also def fit in that category of being a ghost, I would have to go out of my own way to socialize and that itself is difficult for me.

missed a great race this morning, bummer. :/ knew it was going to be fast. saturday's morning race could have been nearly as fast, historically it's very fast.





look at all of these young dudes... stacked.




also, top female is no joke. that young girl is going to make these road races around here very competitive again. she's girls athlete of the year down here or something too.
