Finishing up work, i got done with my stuff about 2 hours early so just relaxing.

I feel idk sick, upset stomach so gonna rest today.

just searched those Adidas Ultra Boost ST's, seem crazy expensive (everywhere).

I've always heard good things about the Flyknit racers. These look slick:

[...]

I like the "knitting", looks dope.

Haha, yeah. I have been trying to work out where I got the Ultra Boost STs, because I definitely didn't pay that for a shoe!!! I think my mum got them for me to encourage me to run instead of lift at some point in the past. Well that eventually worked out...

I will admit I originally just bought the flyknits because I thought they looked cool and I could wear them as casual shoes when the weather was good, in addition to wearing them to the gym. I have this colourway:

Morning BW: 72.0kg

Notes

Should take a full rest today. Chest, lats and calves pretty sore. Abs totally wrecked. Will run tomorrow to make this week a 20+ mile week, though!

Will eat lightly today, I think. Surprised to wake up at 72.0 today given I had a run and a lift session yesterday, but I guess I ate pretty well through the day.

Recovery lower & upper and bball today. Maybe a chance to get back on the wagon.
BS 3x120, 6x100

Notes:
Gym renovated, it sucks now. Need to find a new one next week.

What did they do? Add more machines?

moved everything around and sold the platform (the only one in the gym) i used to squat on. yea no idea, wtf. lol.

That's so annoying. I'm lucky that when my gym does something it only adds to the gym and doesn't take away. We got a rope climbing machine the other day. Need to try that one out.

REST

Calves haven't recovered from the track on Tuesday. Incredibly sore. I don't think anything is strained but just serious doms that I'm not used to there. I remember I did this before by doing sprints on the treadmill at the gym in minimalist shoes and couldn't walk for a week. Mental note to use my normal running shoes till I'm a bit more accustomed.

damn! ya i know that feeling .. it absolutely sucks.

too much too soon and potentially too intense shoes like you said. always ease into that stuff better, can really crush you if you don't.

Went to the Aus open tennis in 43 degree heat. Luckily we had marque passes but still it was incredibly hot. Walked a ton too which idk if good or bad in that heat. The tennis we watched was near on the most boring sport I've ever seen. No intensity or emotion but I imagine they were just trying to make it through in the heat which was reported as 69 degrees on court. That's 156 fahrenheit for our American friends.

whoa

ya i watched a few matches and players were really hurting .. monfils had to go back to the training room, looked like he was about to pass out.

that's crazy hot. nuts.

Yeah you could see their souls being destroyed out there. Makes me appreciate what they do that much more seeing the perseverance to push through in those conditions.

ah nice at the last paragraph. exactly @ trials. first few races are going to "suck" regardless. it's almost unavoidable. one can prepare to the utmost, but then when they get into the real thing, it's a big reality punch. that's why I don't like the mindset of: "training 6 months for a marathon" without doing several races in between, ie 5k/10k/halfs. People put so many eggs into one basket, things can go very wrong without the extra "race experience". racing keeps you sharp in lots of different ways. The "feeling of racing" itself, ie, everything leading up to the horn going off, including the few days prior, and then the feeling of the race itself, are very important. Those experiences all factor into the effort. so ya, get those trials in. if they go great, awesome. if they go berserk, to be expected. :ninja:

when/what are your races again?

we need a race planner thread :D where we just list upcoming race dates...

Yes exactly. That's kind of why I'm not calling them races just yet  :ninja:

Feb 4 and April 8. Feb 4 is 250m swim, 10k ride, 3k run and April 8 is 750m swim, 26.7k ride, 5k run.

Great idea. Can list upcoming dates and then add results even.

when i wake up, i fully expect a gov shut down. I think Dems really want to sabotage Trump's state of the union coming up (as well as get some other important things done but, i think this is on their minds). But I think it will backfire, beyond belief.

anyway that's my clueless prediction.
