Yesterday

Meditation 1hr 45
Run 25.33km 5.43m/km avg pace 619m elevation, prob 90% on trail - didn't plan to go this far but it was nice weather so ended up exploring some new trails.

Body felt REKT after, super cold, tired, shivery. Felt like post run flu. Didn't take amy fluid/food which probably contributed, i only ate 2 squares of dark chocolate and a banana before so maybe that's why.

i got a gun a few weeks ago,  i've tried it all over the years, TENS, foam rolling, spiky ball, etc. But the massage gun is the only thing that actually works if it's going to help, it does. Had super tight lats/erectors/hamstrings on the weekend and i used it in the morning and by the afternoon i felt 'fixed'.  Mine isn't teragun either, was on special on amazon, usually goes for $150 and i picked it up or around $105 ish.

Yoga ~45m
Meditation 1hr30m
Couch 2 5k wk 2 with GF (about 8km walk with a bit of jogging)

Gym
Ng chins 2 x 12, 8
Db bp 30kg x 8, 26kg x 12
Ohp 16kg 2 x 10-12
Db row 30kg 2 x 10-12
Curls 14kg 1 x 12
Tri pdown 19kg x 12

Running club - had fun, nice group mostly older guys from what i could gather. They put me in the slower group based on a 5k > 19m but i was probably the quickest in that group. Cinder track felt nice too! First time running in kinvaras in a long time too, felt super quick. App my stride is ridiculous (thanks years of bball/power training haha). They meet Tues and Thurs for speed stuff so def will try make it down once a week. Track is only about a mile from my flat too.

Session was

325m x 8 w/ 2m jog recovery
There and back totalled 10.5k mileage for the evening.

Busy day! Definitely need to be eating more with these activity levels. Currently having wisdom tooth issues though which doesn't help.
