it's amazing how good my legs felt when i finished running last night. much better than after most ~6-7 km runs. not sure why that is, but as i said they felt light, and like they wanted to keep moving. and no knee ache at all. it's not like i was going super slow, either, and my knees were aching a little after the ~9 km run i did last week at much slower pace.

hm.

because it is not in god's plan for me to ever have something nice without also being denied something nice, my body followed up yesterday's excellent run with a day-long driving headache. took some panadol a little while ago to seemingly no effect. fml.

no exercise tonight, just frustration and trying not to lose my temper for no reason.

that's one of the best feelings, especially when it continues into the next day.

I get it "randomly": i've had it after short sessions, long ones etc. I had it after my really long run a few weekends ago, love it.

 :ibrunning: :ibrunning:

edit: another amazing post-run experience is: after VERY LONG runs, lungs can just feel amazing (air feels more "pure" and breathing feels more relaxed).. that day and for another day or so. That's a really cool feeling, not sure if others experience it.

damn :/

interesting. will be a phenomenon to look forward to but not try to predict i guess. legs felt a lot heavier today, especially soleus toward the end.

- interval workout
-- warm up run x 2 km @ 4:50 pace
-- 1 km x 3 @ [4:13, 4:10, 4:07], 1:30 walking rest
-- cool down run x 2 km @ 5:24 pace (dead)
more challenging than i expected. didn't feel great. 7.51 km total distance, 37:33 total time. almost exactly the same as last interval workout.

dreamt about my late brother last night for the first time since he died.

friday ended up being rest.

yesterday

- run 7.43 km in 34:24
stiff breeze, which is unusual here. 4:38 pace, a bit quicker than relaxed but still three breaths in three breaths out.

- stretch

- pull ups x 5
shoulder okay, not 100% but okay.

moving in with gf in a new place in a couple of weeks. pretty excited about it. considering getting a set of monkey bars

- run 11.01 km in 55:57
did not check pace at any point, nice and relaxed. 5:05 pace on average, so slower than last week's longe run but quicker than the week before. felt very sad and enervated all of a sudden this evening and had a strong urge to be alone, which is really unusual for me. took me a while to get out the door but once i did was very glad.

also this puts me at 43.1 km for the week, so this marks a single-run distance PR and gives me a seven-day PR.

last night

- GMB warm up

- pirouettes x some

- front levers x some

- handstands x some

- pull ups x some

- hollow body holds x some

- stretch

25-30 mins in total, just wanted to get upper body involved a little. resting legs after the 11 km on sunday, plus it was absolutely pouring rain. don't mind a little cold or a little rain, but pouring rain in 45-degree weather: hard pass. if it's raining again tonight i'll go to the gym, otherwise it's interval time.

- interval workout
-- warm up run 2.00 km @ 4:53 pace
-- 500m x 7 @ [1:58, 1:56, 1:58, 1:58, 1:56, 1:58, 1:57], 1:00 walking rest
-- cool down run 1.76 km @ 5:40 pace (dead, calves especially right not into it, took a couple short walking breaks)
mental game. brain still bargaining with me to cut the number of intervals short but i did one more than last time. fuck you brain. total distance 8.09 km, total time 40:28.

- stretch

also this keeps me over 40 km for the last seven-day period.

morning

- run ~4 km in ??
struggled, mornings are hard. gotta reorient bedtime if i'm gonna start running in the morning before it gets hot out. forgot watch so not sure about time or exact distance but i did 4 km worth of laps at the track.

- stretch

will run again later.

EDIT: evening

- run 7.67 km in 36:53
4:48 pace. did not look at watch until the end. mostly kept it a shade above easy, picked it up to 4:05 or so for the last couple hundred meters just for funsies. slightly disappointed in the overall pace but that's okay.

- stretch

another note: the garmin forerunner 235 hr monitor is supposed to be unreliable, but it's interesting to look at the trendline on the run today: steadily up from 135 to 152 over the course of the run.
