wow, that is a BIG jump for you in mileage, no? no wonder your body freaked out. dehydrated and probably super depleted.

Yeah, probably too big and it wasn't really even planned. Just went full forrest gump, just didn't feel like stopping lol.

Long run day

21.47 km 5:46 pace 2hr 03m moving time

Very hilly, mostly trail, windy and cold. Though but fun and my first half marathon distance.

Omg since I finished this run I've had horrendous abdominal cramps and chills, what is going on. I was probably mega dehydrated but the heck, feel like I have flu. Mixed with all the endorphins, feels weird. Also got a nasty blister.

hah. awesome. :headbang: :ibrunning:

"running yourself into the ground" is an interesting feeling for sure. i've done it a few times hah. mostly happens when you make big jumps in intensity/mileage/frequency etc, like LBSS mentioned.

Ran in calf compression sleeves today, felt really gooood. Didn't notice any calf/shin pain the whole time. I'm still on the heavier side at around 85kg so these are a big help. Dunno how much is placebo.. They do feel nice lol.

some people i know swear by them, say they help with their calves/shins etc. i personally never felt any benefit. but if they seemed to work that good, that's pretty cool. would be nice if you don't need them eventually tho.

Check out my activity on Strava: https://strava.app.link/KD3Gdnc3SV

damn @ that hill (mountain!).

Yeah I guess my body was just freaking out, during the run I felt OK and I went for a stroll to cool down and felt OK, but then it all went downhill about 30 mins agyer the run. I still feel kinda wrecked today.

Yeah the calf sleeves I dunno, I generally like compression stuff... It just feels nice. I guess living here where its cold it's OK... If I loved in Fl I probably wouldnt haha.

I have some ongoing left shin pain and am terrified of a stress fracture after I had one in my spine so gonna take it easy for a bit. I won't be doing a long run this week anyway as I'm super busy with work meh.

Yesterday did a 6k ish slow 6/km pace... Felt horrendous.

Then saw mos def live.... Dudes a bit of a weirdo.

Today felt dead again, long work day

Inc BP Db 34kg x 3, 30kg x 7/8, 24kg x 15
Pull ups 3 x 10 ish
Db overhead pull things
Some bb stuff meh


Work stress is just kind of killing me, feel constantly run into the ground and always got so much crap looming over me. I do wonder whether I can do this for the rest of my working days, I'm just holding out for it getting a bit easy as I become more senior. I certainly couldn't do this year many more times.

Probably why I'm running myself into the ground lol. Better than drinking myself into the ground I guess baha

Been super sunny so kinda depressing.

Chins 20kg x 6, 10kg x 6 +, 4bw

Today ran a 10k (outside, canal path) was ok

Attempted to squat after, legs felt strong but mind and body did not

97.5kg x 5, did 1 rep of the second set and just didn't really have anything left, 100% could have pushed through and got the 3x5 but longevity ftw.

Legs felt strong enough standing out the bottom but just unracking the weight felt like 140kg on my back, weird. Cns just fried?

I hiked 20km yesterday so I guess my body on y my rest day from the hectic weekend of work, was really fun but still I think I need a say of just... Nothing haha.

It's my birthday tomorrow so probably going to just relax

happy birthday man!! :highfive:

mos def live, haha sick. didnt know he was kindof a weird tho lmao.

and ya i've been afraid of stress fractures and such several times, usually with my feet tho.. tbh i've probably had a few minor-ish ones. i've had some weird shit happen to my feet. soft surfaces definitely help tho, unless you crank on a rock - that doesn't help.

hopefully you can relax tmw. sleep in & eat good :D

i saw a black star (mos def and talib kweli) show about 15 years ago in DC. he is a weird dude. genius, though.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

yup!

and it still slowly adds up: "easy joy running" still builds fitness.

More easy joy noodle runnin, especially the sections in the park at dusk, so relaxing. All concrete tho, else would gone further.

12.87km at 5:49 pace avg. First 3 or so and last 3 or so km much quicker. Fun stuff. Back on nights over the weekend so wanted to get a longer one in before then.

Squat 105kg 3 x 5 pretty tough
Leg curl 60kg 2 x 12

Chins x 13
Dips x 20

Was gonna do more but felt like crap.

Now got 3 night shifts and then immediately after a full 2 day course/assessment which is gonna be stressful as heck (esp with no prep time)

Also got revalidation coming up at the end of the month and I have a stupid amount still to do. This has been by far the most stressful month in a while. Feeling pretty burnt out, bleh. Should get better come June at least.
