    Not going to lie, my calves are sore today after yesterday's run. Thankfully it's arm day.

    As this is my first day of high-volume curls, I'm taking it light for starters. Every fifteen minutes, I hold 40 pound dumbbells in each hand and curl them five times. I'm up to 25 reps now. No goal number today--will stop when exhausted.

I feel great, though. Runner's high is real! Had steak and eggs before run, just water after. Plan on not eating for a while.
    not bad time, really, about an 8ish minute mile pace.... alot faster than I run, typically

    Yesterday was more sprints and today I rode my bicycle (heavy 45-pound beach cruiser, no cheater racing bike) on hills for over an hour. I'm also eating 1200 or less calories every day. Less than 50g carb easily. I mean, today I had salmon cooked in duck lard, 4 eggs, some seaweed, a glop of molasses in my coffee, some green tea with ginger, and a few macadamia nuts. And some cheese. I'm high-intensity, low-carb and low-calorie and I've actually not had this much energy for quite awhile! Then again, I am on vacation, that must help a ton.

    Tomorrow is supposed to be chin-up day, but I still haven't built my chin-up bar. I should do that. Or I could just do 700 push-ups.

    Next time I run, I'm going not faster but longer. Instead of 1.5 miles, I'm going to go 2.25 miles, since that's the trip to my mailbox and back and to again. I feel my current pace is adequate, since it's at the upper end of what I feel I could do all day if I had to. Plus, I can't lengthen my stride, and trying to swing my legs any faster puts strain on my hips and my body tells me no. It's like I have a built-in default pace.

    When do I feel run down? When does my thyroid crawl out of my neck and rip out my hair?
    NOTE: on that curl day I had to drop it down to 40 pounds so I could go all day without joint pain. I'm still greasing the groove, they're in my kitchen and I curl them throughout the day.

    Kept doing curls yesterday, and today is 700 push-ups. I'm doing a set of 10 every 8 minutes until 10:20 tonight starting at 12:00.

    They're stable. Oddly not that impressive yet. I'll probably lose the ab-off.

    I hope so!

    Need a distance for that. How far did you go?

    Next time I run, I'm going not faster but longer. Instead of 1.5 miles, I'm going to go 2.25 miles, since that's the trip to my mailbox and back and to again. I feel my current pace is adequate, since it's at the upper end of what I feel I could do all day if I had to.
    "what I feel" don't mean Jack until it turns into "what I did". Do that pace for 5 miles and we have a starting point to talk from. A 1.5 mile run for a (guessing) 170 pound man is only using about 160 calories - such a low level of exertion can be fuelled from pretty much anywhere. Hell, you can probably absorb that much from the atmosphere through osmosis.
