slept in. heat run. brutal but great.

04/13/2019

12:15 PM: very light: 1h50m ::: (grass/hills, -10 lb water) /// overheat + scorching hot = brutal fun
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2287372141





crazy losing ~10 lb water in 1h50m.. my big (sun-protective) hat was dripping, felt like it was raining.

had on my parachute wind breaker pants (which really insulate the heat) and a non-breathable long sleeve. was toast. hah.

felt great all day after.

solid slow concrete run.


04/16/2019

08:45 AM: very light: 1h30m ::: (concrete, fasted)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2294118526



getting used to the vapor fly 4% clown shoes. probably will be great > half marathon distance road races - that's why i got them.

pretty good for a fasted concrete run.

i have quite the arsenal of highly effective but low intensity running techniques now:
- fasted runs (higher RPE)
- overheat runs (run slow w/ higher HR, increased water loss, very difficult)
- long hilly runs (extra strength stimulus)
- very long slow flat runs (mental strength)



10:45 AM: bw
- decent

3-5sec paused dead hang chinups: BW x 7
full dips: BW x 7

Are you still working in the it/coding/programming world? Do you enjoy working those kind of hours?

yup. doing backend/frontend programming, infrastructure etc. lots of "intense" coding.

Do you enjoy working those kind of hours?

i'd rather work less, but it's hard to find good people around here. our frontend engineer recently resigned (he was awful) and i've been trying to fix his code & get it ready for the next person (or group of people). so that's where most of the extra hours come in, picking up someone elses work load.

but ya i do enjoy it.

i get paid for every hour too soo, it's not like i'm working for "free" when i put in more hours. so that helps. people can get understandably "bitter" if they are routinely asked to do more work and not get compensated for it, ie salaried positions that overwork people. so i have a decent agreement there with my boss.

i'd love to work < 30 hours a week tho.. hah. i used to put in 10-20, and was fine with it. now i'm putting in tons but it's because we have a ton of stuff going on that requires a ton of development/attention etc.

but ya i love coding. :ninja:

i'd love to get to the point where i'm working < 30 and we (myself & company) are making big $$ just because everything is so efficient & well architected.

:D

peace man!

light speed day!

felt good. ate good (lots of fruit). hydrated good (tons of water). got in a nice session.

left foot feeling better today but im sure this run will make it achy again. bottom left of it is still achy from 2 weeks ago eh.


04/20/2019

07:30 PM: light speed (no watch) + long cooldown: 3h08m ::: (speed = grass + spikes, cooldown = grass/spikes then concrete/grass/xc flats) /// kinda looks like an adarq session.. felt great, milkshake waiting for me afterwards
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2306176410

great session.

right glute was a little achy before the session but felt good mostly.







legs understandably a bit achy afterwards. right hip has an abrasion from my key rubbing on it or something. eeeh.

feel good tho.

would like to get in some super slow running tmw @ ~2 PM or so.

probably going to miss the Duval Street Mile on Thursday. sucks. i'm def not "mile ready". probably not a good idea to do it.

all good.

might do a 5k on the weekend tho.. not sure yet. could be good to get back into the swing of things with some big races coming up.. but could also re-injure me. feeling ~85% right now, which is decent but i think ~95% is safer. there will always be that ~5% beat-up buffer left.

wanted to get in a light run today but, right glute is a little jacked up.

so decided to spend ~30 min rolling on lacrosse balls. will just stretch/mfr today. AERS.

so painful. muscles just too tight. right glute is just locked up right now, so tight. right glute started pulsating ~15 min afterwards. nice.

i've made some decent flexibility gains in the last 2-3 weeks tho.. been stretching fairly consistently. and somehow havent hurt myself.



interesting how it was my left glute that was the problem.. but lately it's been the right one. hmm. when my left was hurt, stretched the hell out of my hamstrings/glutes/hips etc, a bit more than my right. right felt fine tho. now im stretching the right more. i'm trying to be very aggressive with the hip/glute/hamstring flexibility/mobility. tired of my hip tweaking if i do a weird random stretch, for example. that's what happened before the marathon. back was bugging, did a random stretch, and then hip tweaked.

left one has been feeling pretty good lately.

once the right one is good, will feel normal.

right glute felt awful all day. stretched, rolled it etc. still felt like crap.

did my magic glute stretch (full bw on it) ~30 min ago, felt amazing ever since. funny.

it's not fixed but that stretch definitely causes something to relax.
