nice! was a dazzler (amazing) here too. funny how you've mentioned it a few times recently, and was the exact same thing here.

today is partly cloudy, but once the sun pops thru.. <3

- run 47:52, 10.1 km
eh. humid. once i get back in a rhythm i need to excise these 4:40-4:50 runs. they're easy but not quite slow enough to be really relaxing, and too slow to be quality work.

- stretch

exercise taking a back seat this week. doing some push ups and BSS and a few pull ups on my aunt's old swing set but that's about it. did go for a nice ~30 minute walk with my mom this evening.

went to new doc today. aside from being incredibly slow, it was fine. he had a couple suggestions about my headaches. the first was that they could be related to my elevated blood pressure. he told me that in the last 15 years or so the recommended ceiling for health bp has gone down steadily, to the point where i'm over it now. so i need to reconsider getting a stent put in (the issue is in one of my kidneys) or going on medication. strong preference for the former, i think.

the other thing was just to say that the headaches are probably muscular and so i need to be doing more stretching and movement throughout the day. that's not new but it gave me a little kick in the pants. i think i'll start doing some meditating as well. it's been 20 years since i meditated regularly but never too late to start again.

immediately after waking

- GMB standing warm up
- face/neck stretches
- meditate x 10 mins

evening

- run 1:02, 12.39 km
slightly sore. kept it nice and relaxed.

- stretch

left shoulder still quite sore and tender. there's a big bruise, as well, about the size of a deck of cards but oval shaped. and upper traps are stiff and sore now. did much more mobilization and self-massage throughout the day than normal.

damn man that's rough (i think?) about the stent etc .. def hope some of the alternative stuff can somehow manage it instead.

i guess if a (safe) op would help and resolve the problem though, that's at least comforting to know.

slept like garbage last night. had one continuous dream about my two most meaningful exes, which i may or may not have awoken in the middle of. in the first part, i was lying on the floor with the most recent ex and nicole aniston, the porn star. we were all naked. ex had invited nicole aniston to have sex with me after ex used clippers to trim my pubes. this was all a big surprise. i knew that she'd have liked me to trim my pubes, although she never specifically asked about it, and in the dream she seemed really excited by the whole thing, so i went along with it. i find nicole aniston very unattractive, so i was worried i wouldn't be able to get it up. and in fact, when she started to straddle me i was still limp. then, suddenly, time had passed. i was standing in the same room but with my previous ex sitting on the floor. both of us clothed. she was looking at me mournfully, pouting, but not saying anything. then i looked around and noticed that she'd taken all of her things out of the room. she was moving out and breaking up with me and it was a fait accompli. i was taken aback by the suddenness and finality of it, which was true of my actual breakup with that ex. then she was not there anymore and i was alone, looking around at the stuff that was left.

you don't exactly have to be freud to note that i am craving both physical and emotional intimacy and that i miss both of my exes.

anyway, on the upside i was awake super early this morning so i went for a run after missing last night because of work.

- run 8.05 km in 40:48
felt absolutely wonderful, need to commit to morning exercise because it makes the rest of the day so much better.

Awesome read, extremely vivid description, making perfect sense while total incoherent. Like when watching Mulholland Drive or Vanilla Sky was like watching a dream on TV, this one was like reading it in a book  :highfive:
Target paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 23:06 :
Easy run : 5:52
Tempo run : 4:53
VO2-max run :4:24
Speed form run : 4:05

started to get a tension headache today, did a bunch of massage and mobilization, it continued to get worse, took ibuprofen and lay down for 20-30 mins, then started to practice guitar. it is receding. deep breaths.

of all that the guitar seems most helpful. trying to learn the intro to this song (en route to learning the whole thing, obviously, but the intro uses a technique, finger rolling, i hadn't learned before, so it's taking a while.)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngyk7wE0Peg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngyk7wE0Peg</a>

that's a duet, i found an arrangement for solo guitar that combines the parts.
