soooo.. i'm going to orchid the fu*k out of my porch. i think. got 2 in there. will have 5 in there by tmw, most likely.

aerial root style.. not the roots bunched up in a pot style. all of mine of very long root systems. that's what i like.

jajaja.



08/17/2019:

aches/injuries:
- sacrum/tailbone inflamed.
- right glute/sacrum/hamstring origin injury acting up a bit today.

bw:
- 149

dinner:
- chopsticks + saute'd broccoli/red chili/green bell pepper + white basmati rice + salt + soy sauce (dipping), roasted/salted almonds,
- milk chocolate raisins

10:30 AM: light: 1h20m ::: (canopy'd mulch trail)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2627205104
- decent run, felt good
- forrest is humid as fu*k. more humid than outside the forrest.. lol.





two pool sessions: dog fun + rehab-ish workouts
- james jumps in easy now.. it's awesome. he just jumps in, usually leaping as far as possible into the pool, then he swims fast, going right for me, trying to get the ball that i'm taunting him with etc.. he swims so fast it's nuts. i try to escape sometimes and i can't even begin to escape, he's on me so quick. hah.

i have water in my ear right now, from pool life. so annoying. ;f

last 3 days: 145 lb.

eating: very clean/good, also with chopsticks.




08/18/2019:

10:00 AM: yard work (~4hr) /// more push mower lyfe
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2630653495
- lost well over 10 lb of water. by the end of the 4 hours, with a gallon of water hydration throughout, i was still -9 lb than in the morning when i woke up.
- that's nuts..
- that push mower really gets you drenched hah.


08/19/2019:

10:00 PM: swim: 35-40min
- non stop swimming (something to stay afloat and move around), while constantly throwing dog toys.
- was pretty tough by the end. didn't feel that bad until i actually went to get out of the pool, then felt kinda lightheaded/weird.. body wasn't used to that kind of exercise.



08/20/2019:

08:00 PM: light swim: 24min afloat ::: did double this yesterday.
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2636954569/overview
- easier than yesterday but fatigued a bit in the shoulders/arms
- feels really good
- back/hips/legs/body feels really loose after.. kinda of mobility-ish.

wore my watch to see if i could get any good data. seems like it ignores HR for swimming. odd. maybe it can't measure in the water. HR was ~80ish throughout, so probably inaccurate. but prior to going in, standing/walking HR was 84 soo..





first tracked swim workout hah!





pizza from last weekend:

i might get into some "urban farming". been thinking about it for a while. and i'm enjoying this yard work etc.

with my OCD, could potentially grow a ton of stuff at this house. i have alot of fencing, could setup vertical pots along the fences and grow like 1000 veggie plants/herbs/etc........... HEH. plus it'd be portable for when i eventually move.

would be cool to grow some of my own food. or even give it to people etc.

i imagine there's ALOT to learn.

i'm in a good climate for it tho.. can grow alot in SFL.

there's some house in a community across from mine, with a very small back yard, but tons of vegetable/fruit plants etc. yard is just packed. looks really cool. i wouldn't do that because i need lots of space for my dogs to run around .. but along the fences, tons of unused space. could grow so much there.

 :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ninja:

I see yet another adarq-skwad forming. Or should i say farming?  :P

my brother has a plot in a community garden near his place in connecticut. he brought down some of his hot peppers to the beach this week and we've been throwing them in different stuff, for example his gf made mango salsa with jalapeño yesterday that is good as hell. something my gf and i have been talking about doing in the UK. even if we don't have enough space in our place (likely), we could join a community garden. very good plan.

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

08/23/2019

dinner:
- solid stir fry
- getting better with chopsticks
- saute'd red bell pepper + jalapeno + red chili, basmati rice, an avocado, lots of salt

awesome. how many variations do you have? also how often do they produce peppers?

i'm most interested in peppers, i eat them with every meal hah.

 :highfive:

jajaja. i like it. sounds like you should lead this farm squad.. :ninja:

i might get a few things this weekend!





my brother has a plot in a community garden near his place in connecticut. he brought down some of his hot peppers to the beach this week and we've been throwing them in different stuff, for example his gf made mango salsa with jalapeño yesterday that is good as hell.

awesome! that salsa you mentioned is making me hungry af. could crush some blue corn chips in some spicy mango salsa right now.

my boss has done that a few times and i'm always impressed by the quality of the home grown veggies. really makes you want to get into it. his mom once brought down some hot peppers and i crushed a ton of them with crackers and cheese, was so good. i remember it well because they were so good.

reminds me of what you just mentioned.

pretty cool man.

you look around yet? some good ones near by?

ironically, i checked one out today. Boca Raton Community Garden has a decent sized lot, but surprised that there's not more growing there. I think Coral Springs had a smaller lot with much more growing there. Lots of plant hippies in coral springs, it's cool.

i might get some simple stuff this weekend just to get started :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

pc!
