- run 6.86 km in 30:57

- stretch

jet lag caught up to me today. wiped out. no intervals. meant for this to be relaxed but still hit 5 km in 22:04. 4:30 pace. a little hard but sustainable.

- hike 24.16 km in 5:46
drove out to the hills with a group of friends and hiked back into town. elevation gain 2,643 feet, although overall we descended. calves very tired, especially right which was cramping a bit. feet and right shin also sore.

super worth it though. very fun.

ETA: time includes semi-frequent breaks, especially from km 5-10 when there was a lot of steep climbing and even a little rock scrambling. it was a pretty fit group so not too bad but my preference is definitely to haul ass with minimal breaks.

- run 5 km in 22:58
legs dead, especially calves just felt heavy. meant to run farther but this was a struggle. funny that i still beat december goal despite feeling like crap. did not check pace once during run.

- walk 1 km

- stretch

getting on a plane in a few hours. tired and sad.

damn.. that's a solid 5k effort considering the circumstances, especially without looking at the pace.

great to know you will be with your fam soon!

been back in the states almost four days now. the first 2.5 days were unbelievably intense and draining. we got back to my parents' house late sunday night. no exercise except moving a bunch of furniture out of his apartment and a few leisurely walks. i'm gonna go to the gym in a little bit.

thanks for the update man. i've been wondering, as well as probably everyone else on here. that statement about the first 2.5 days .. can't even imagine.

also good about going to the gym today. if you haven't gone already, maybe rep the fu*k out of some safe lifts, but don't go too heavy.

peace man!

- run 5 km in 22:36

- walk 100m

- run x 0.9 km

- walk x 200m

steep downhill out, steep uphill back. very tough. could/should have pushed through and just jogged very slowly to recover when i first walked but w/e. fitness dissipated. need to find a hill to do back in islamabad. heading home tonight.

they should have gyms in airports. at least in the business lounges. i'd hit the treadmill in doha if there was one.

I kid you not that is a million dollar idea right there. It needs investigating.

turns out they do, in the airport hotel, but it costs $50. mmmm no.

i'd pay $25, though...

- run 6.66 km in 32:22
pace really all over the place, felt fast at the beginning but was only going at 4:37-4:40 for the first 2 km. either there's something goofy with my watch (please god no) or RPE was just way higher today than normal. this felt hard but was actually slower than monday. and apparently i hit 5 km in 24:07? weird.
