- run 4.01 km in 19:17
janky run. normal route cut off because they'd shut down all access on the main road to the cricket ground. odd. someone important must have been planning to go that way in the next few minutes. self-important, i mean. the most popular politician in the country barely has guards. i ran into him the other week while getting groceries. anyway. work went late again tonight and i'm tired so i didn't want to go super long. i'm also frustrated so i turned around and just picked up the pace. ended up going reasonably hard for the first 2.75 km and then shut it down. splits were 4:49, 4:27, 4:37 (with 0.25km slow), 5:17. first three are quick for the road.

humbling to realize what 4:00 feels like to me right now. i touched sub-4:00 a couple of times when i was going down hill and consciously running. 19:59 5k is a long way off. patience.

- run 4.5 km in 21:16

- walk/jog 0.7 km

- stretch

another janky-ass run. did the first 2 km in 9:00 on the nose, which is just under the pace i'll need to hit for the december goal of sub-23 5k. slowed down a bit and did the next 2 km in 9:48, which is closer to my natural track pace. then did a slow lap and change with gf at the end to cool down.

sleep schedule matters.

hah. i'd never have suspected that (barely has guards), just getting groceries like it's nothing.

ya it does. same with dunking/vert etc. being properly rested, can be a huge difference maker.

coming down with a cold, no doubt related to lack of sleep and stress. decided to sleep in today as a result. but feeling better than i was last night and this morning so if i continue to be on the mend will run tonight.

EDIT: felt better in the evening so...

- run 6.34 km in 30:48

- stretch

started out feeling very shitty, just grinding, but ended up being okay. wore tights and long sleeves, which is smart now that it's getting a little colder. need to get some more tights and some more long sleeve shirts, currently only have two pairs.

Great stuff! Really tempted to join you guys and buy a garmin and a headband and start training for 5k. Im prob a few years away from that if i keep trying to get the 180kg/2xbw squat/40" vertical goal first but i would love to start running after that. Maybe next year. lol.
Making a new strength setpoint of 75/100/150 on OHP/BP/BS.

- slow run 4.1 km in 24:55
gf wanted to run in the park and isn't comfortable to do it alone, so we went together. too slow to be anything other than gentle recovery. it was super nice though, good pathways. may start going there in the morning for longer runs if she isn't gonna join.

lmao stuff like that is the worst.. sometimes (rarely) I whack my knee getting into my car, knee hits something below the dash and just wrecks it. have actually had it swell up before (way back).

things i do on occasion: stub my toe, bang my head, bang my shoulder, bang my elbow, bang my knee, step on a rock outside barefoot and experience neural shutdown (the worst) lmao, bite my lip really bad (actually this is the worst - because once you do it, it'll happen several more times in the near future).

lol. Hitting the little toe till it turns out fat. Biting the lip omg is so bad you actually hear/feel the crunch. especially when you bite it with your canines.

felt fast, full of energy. evenings still easier than mornings. hit 5.00 km in 23:12, which is just 0:12 behind my december goal for a 5k...in the middle of a longer run. good.

solid!

that's how i see most experienced do their tempo too.. 1 run, with 2-3+ mile warmup, tempo in the middle, 2-3+ mile cool down.

- run 4.34 km in 22:16
struggle bus. didn't really eat dinner last night (salad and 1.5 cinnamon rolls, which i made and which took so long i forgot about dinner, lol) and drank more than i should have (but won $50 playing poker so...worth it!). these were junk miles, but not enough that i'm worried about it. still happy to have done more than nothing.
