blister on left heel, what the hell? been running in these shoes for two months but apparently walking in them is so different it gave me a blister. didn't go for a long walk today. instead

- yoga x 35 mins
did a lesson from alo moves, which my gf subscribes to, focused on leg activation. pretty tough. yoga is really not the best route for me because of my toes. i'm gonna start back in with GMB instead, from tomorrow.

yesterday

- GMB floor 1.1
eh, i don't think i want to start this all over again, either.

today

- run 6.1 km in 28:48
tried to keep it relaxed, still ended up at 4:43 pace. that is a few hairs fast but i hadn't run in two weeks (!!!) so it makes sense that my legs were ready to go. right foot felt a little weird at the beginning but not the arch really so that's a good sign. still, no run tomorrow and i'll keep the distances very modest for a while.

- stretch

had a headache all day yesterday that became severe in the mid-afternoon. spent a while lying down, took some ibuprofen, just kept getting worse. finally i got up and shaved and it went away just like that. note to self: next time you get a bad headache, try hot water on your face.

i feel great today, will run and do push ups (and maybe pull-ups, depending on if i can get the bar set up).

- walk 6.48 km in 1:04:06
windy but not unpleasant.

compounding covid-19 isolation and stress, my relationship appears to be in the process of ending.

- run 4.29 km in 19:55
too fast (4:38 average including a sub-race-pace kick over the last 3-400m), almost like extensive tempo except it didn't feel hard. arch of right foot present at beginning of run but just that, and it went away.

- run 7.07 km in 35:54
forced myself to run slower, averaged 5:05 pace. good discipline. foot fine.

- stretch

- GMB torso/shoulder/wrist warm up

- pull up x 4,4,4,3,8

- push up x 14,14,10,10,16
each week the rx is for 60s rests on day 1, 90s on day 2, and 120s on day 3. i didn't follow that last week but will from now on. this was a 60s rest day, hence the lower number for the last set.

some more found poetry for y'all. i'm reading the mirror and the light and once in a while the author, hilary mantel, just lets it rip.

here's a bit i came across just now, with breaks added every 10 (sometimes 11) syllables and the verses separated when it shifts from third to second/first person. just to see how it looks in verse form. she rules extremely hard at writing so it's a bit of a cheat to call this found poetry, but i saw someone do it with a passage from the prequel to this book, bring up the bodies, and i got a kick out of it then. so figured i'd do the same once in a while.

Quote
Don't look back, he had told the king, yet he
too is guilty of retrospection as
the light fades, in that hour in winter or summer
before they bring in the candles, when earth
and sky melt, when the fluttering heart of
the bird on the bough calms and slows, and the
night-walking animals stir and stretch and
rouse, and the eyes of cats shine in the dark,
when color bleeds from sleeve and gown into
the darkening air; when the page grows dim
and letter forms elide and slip into other
conformations, so that as the page is
turned the old story slides from sight and a
strange and slippery confluence of ink
begins to flow.

........................ You look back into your
past and say, is this story mine; this land? Is
that flitting figure mine, that shape easing
itself through alleys, evader of the
curfew, fugitive from the day? Is this
my life, or my neighbor's conflated with
mine, or a life I have dreamed and prayed for;
is this my essence, twisting into a
taper's flame, or have I slipped the limits
of myself -- slipped into eternity, like
honey from a spoon? Have I dreamt myself,
undone myself, have I forgotten too
well[? M]y sins seek me out; even as I
slide into sleep, my past pads after me, paws
on the flagstones, pit-pat: water in a
basin of alabaster, cool in the
heat of the Florentine afternoon.

here's the passage from the previous book:

Quote
These days are perfect.
The clear untroubled light
picks out each berry
shimmering in a hedge.
Each leaf of a tree,
the sun behind it, hangs
like a golden pear.

Riding westward in high summer,
we have dipped into sylvan chases
and crested the downs, emerging
into that high country where,
even across two counties, you can
sense the shifting presence of the sea.
In this part of England our forefathers
the giants left their earthworks,
their barrows and standing stones.

We still have, every Englishman and woman,
some drops of giant blood in our veins.
