It is not impressive nor does it make your dick bigger to speed up when I'm about to pass you, maintain that speed for about 2 minutes before dying and slowing down, allowing me to be able to catch you again and repeat the process. It is especially creepy when you audibly coax yourself -… Continue reading Attention all male runners
Well, I don't know what happened today, but I ended up running my long run way too fast. I felt great, and it didn't completely kill me (well, maybe I should wait until tomorrow to say that), but I am still perplexed. I even added on about a mile at the end, after looking at… Continue reading I’m confused.
I'm here! I'm alive! I guess when things are just chugging along I don't think about doing a recap after every run. That, and I'm kind of in all-systems-go mode with my focus entirely on finishing my lab work to be able to write my thesis. I'm working on transitioning from "lab work with writing… Continue reading *waves*
Ahhh summer in the city. It's amazing how the asphalt, concrete and steel bump up the temperature about 10*. It's oppressive. Don't get me wrong, I love the heat, there's just something about NYC heat that seems so... unnatural and uncomfortable.The heat wave started on Saturday, just in time for our annual tradition of camping… Continue reading Holy heat wave, Batman.
... I booked a flight to Israel for 10 days in July to visit R. Hopefully by then I'll be in a place to write my thesis and meet with potential lab homes while I'm there. But, above all, it's a vacation and NOT a working trip, and I'm thrilled to be able to see… Continue reading In other news…
When I left the apartment for my 12-miler yesterday, I knew it was 68*, sunny, and breezy. I don't know what weather.com's definition of 68* is, because it felt so much hotter than that. I don't know what it was, maybe the intensity of the sun or something, but man did the heat get to… Continue reading Hot!
Not much time to write today, but I had to mention this morning's run, as it was fantastic! I went out at a comfy pace, was tired by the end but not dead, and my pace ended up being faster than I thought, and nothing hurt! Plus, I had on a new pair of Gel… Continue reading SO back!
After almost a week sans running and diligent rolling and icing (with some Aleving a few times), I'm feeling about 90% perfect. I still feel a slight tightness in my hip, but the aching is certainly no more. It will still take me being careful with the ice and the foam roller, but at least… Continue reading Back at it.
I am having a little flare-up in my IT band and my hip hurts. I have been rolling and doing a lot of self-massage the past few days - and not running 😦 I can feel the tight ligament when I massage, it's awful. Right now I'm at the point of major discomfort, and not… Continue reading Curses, ITB!
I am trying to keep myself awake to take my midnight time point. Yes, I have to go to lab for about 10 minutes at midnight to drug my parasites. Fun stuff.Running since last week has been good. Nothing too unusual to report. Despite myself, my pace during my recovery week last week did not… Continue reading
