i didn't set out to push myself -- actually, i hadn't even decided on a distance until a couple of laps in. i looked at my phone for the first time around the 2.5km mark and noticed that i'd just passed 11:30, i.e. running just over 22:00 pace. at that point i figured i might as well keep up the pace as best i could through 5km and see how it went.

could have pushed harder but it would have been draining and i don't want to drain myself yet. still building up strength. patience.

no run yesterday because of worries about tightness in hamstring. leg feels great today though so may run later this afternoon before going to my first (FINALLY) pakistani wedding.

afternoon

- walk/clamber around 500-year-old fort x 2 hours

evening

- run 5.05km in 26:05
verrry easy. air quality is very bad at the moment. right hamstring fine, left hamstring oddly a little tight for a kilometer or so in the middle but nbd, went away.

- stretch

- run 5.37km in 27:29
lost at least 60-90s at road crossings, so running pace was more like 4:50-4:55 and relaxed, not pushing at all. improvement.

- stretch

knees feeling it a wee bit right now post-run. intention was to do intervals tomorrow morning, but may rest and do them friday instead.

1:48, 1:53, 1:57, (400m in 1:33, whoops), 1:56

- cool down x 500m

- stretch

stopped early on fourth interval by accident. less smoggy in morning, still pretty smoggy.

brother here! spent the last several days in the mountains.

november 13

- hike x 6 hours
not sure of distance. elevation gain was at least 1100m/3600' and topped out above 3300m/11,000'. it was steep.

november 14

- hike x 6 hours
partway across a glacier and back and then back down. distance about 2km longer than day one but the glacier part was sloooow going. combo of dicey weather and difficult visibility on the glacier meant we cut the trek off a night early.

november 15
- walking up and down hills and stairs x a lot
soleus quite sore. calves and quads also.

what a rad trip. i walked on a glacier at 11,000 feet above sea level. that's a lifetime first.

thanks y'all! had a pretty great bday weekend. big party on saturday night, chill recovery/clean-up day on sunday, then a small dinner last night with a few friends and my brother on his last night before heading back to the states. plus opened a bottle of a wine that i've been lusting after for more than 10 years, found in the doha duty free earlier this year and bought on a whim. it did not disappoint.

what a week and a half it's been.

back to running tonight. it's nice and chilly now in the mornings and evenings.

- run 6.15km in 32:03
after nearly two weeks of no running, right back to 5:12 pace. was down at about 5:00 relaxed before my brother arrived. meant to run less but forgot that it's MY house that's 2km from the track and my gf's place is farther. whoops. weird thing happened at the end where my right foot started to feel like it was juuust a little bit asleep. something to monitor.

- stretch

EDIT: also, several people have asked me in the last couple of weeks if i've lost weight. i believe them, i feel skinny. and i think i've been suppressing my appetite, or rather finishing meals before i'm done when the option to go for seconds is there. not sure why. a propos of the convo in adarq's journal, i do not want to lose weight. the shoulder thing is a huge pain because it prevents pretty much all compound upper work, which would at least make me feel like i'm not getting weaker. it's been three goddamn months now, time for some more serious action on the shoulder. maybe go to the doctor here. my colleague's been having shoulder issues and seeing a PT and ortho. will ask her.
