- run 6.1 km in 33:17
left calf a little tight. not bothersome, just noticeable.

- band dislocates and pull aparts

- push ups x 20
shoulder felt good, yay

- KB paused row x 10/arm
left lat weird

- BSS x 10/leg

- stretch

meant to do 9+ but it was 39/102 and humid. slow 6 is enough. seven-day total 43.7 km. gotta do at least two two-a-days this week. maybe tomorrow, then a longer runs on tuesday and wednesday when it's supposed to be a little cooler and raining, then again on thursday. if i get lucky i'll get to go to the mountains next weekend.

same. dog has massive allergies, wrecked my sleep so bad. his insanity making me insane. took him in to the vet today, got allergy/antibiotic shots.

he's been wrecked for a week, so i'm losing my mind. fwiw, he was getting better, then got way worse last night.

but ya, lack of sleep = death.

same shit last night. went to bed at a reasonable time, couldn't fall asleep, woke up around 3:30 or 4, was awake until at least around 5:30. no idea why, no obvious changes or stressors in the last couple of days.

- run 4.72 km in 24:30

- stretch

struggle bus part the second. i slept through the night last night (woot) but i think my body is just tired. legs did not want to work. also forgot to mention last night that i left my running shoes at work so i had to use my old, very beat-up ones. makes a difference. i don't know how adarq runs so much in crushed shoes. well, i guess the grass switch probably helps but he was proudly running shoes to the soles before that iirc.

The majority of my runs are barefoot.  I recommend reading this if you have time https://www.amazon.com/Born-Run-Hidden-Superathletes-Greatest/dp/0307279189

i got on the barefoot running train ten years ago. i remember when macdougal's book and POSE blew up and then crossfit incorporated POSE-like prescriptions because they had the ring of truth with no evidence (like the paleo diet or kelly starrett's postural purism) and it took off. then i developed osteoarthritis in my toes and stumbled off the train.

the research consensus is swinging back away from barefoot>*. there just isn't any evidence that running barefoot improves running economy or reduces injuries at a population level; in fact when i was last following the research, 4-5 years ago, seemed like barefoot running may just transfer injury risk from the knees down to the feet and ankles. for most people who grew up in shod cultures it's fine to wear shoes. there's huge variability from person to person, of course, so if running barefoot feels great for you then rock on. i'll stick with lightweight running shoes.

^^ ya

lightweight running shoes, mostly running on grass/dirt, ftw. best of both worlds.

not a fan of barefoot myself, too risky. and thin soled vibram shoes don't help much, easy to get injured clipping a rock or nail/thorn etc.

i love my XC flats. such rugged, yet light/minimalist shoes. My last 2 pair of Saucony Shay xc4's have ~800 miles on them each... going to be a sad day when I have to retire them. :/

fawk. :(

this book im reading says Zatopek (olympian) once ran in his tub for 2 hours, because he couldn't get a workout in (due to weather). not saying you should do that at all, just figured i'd mention it because some people are absolute psychos. I wouldn't do that... lol.

found somewhat of the story online:

Quote
Encouraged, he redoubled his efforts over the following winter. He would run at night, carrying a torch. He would strap weights to his feet and then go cycling. He would make a cut-price treadmill by putting a layer of wet clothes at the bottom of his bath and running on them, one part athlete, one part washing machine. He ran in heavy army boots and embraced rain, ice and snow. “There is a great advantage in training under unfavourable conditions,” he said. “It is better to train under bad conditions, for the difference is then a tremendous relief in a race.”

lol.

last night was tired to the point of feeling vaguely sick. no run. this has been a rough week.

- run 8.06 km in 41:20

- stretch

at least it's not quite as hot as it's been (low 30s/high 80s instead of high 30s/~100).

today marks six months since my brother died.

rest in peace, jack.

damn :/ even just through the "internet", it's rough thinking about when it happened, how we found out about it here, seeing the FB posts etc.
