Brrrr</p> Wed, 05 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Dec 04, 2018 <p>9 miles before class, cold out. 6:42 pace</p> Tue, 04 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Dec 03, 2018 <p>8. Ran a little farther than usual to the overlook</p> Mon, 03 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Dec 02, 2018 <p>7 in the afternoon. No watch but the last 5.5 were about tempo effort. Felt like I was flying, but could go forever</p> Sun, 02 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 01, 2018 <p>sub 6 pace. Ate a lot of buffalo pretzel thins today so I&#39;m surprised it went that well</p> Sat, 01 Dec 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 30, 2018 <p>didn&#39;t run for a few days bc of academics. Legs felt good but had a side stitch I couldn&#39;t just breathe through</p> Fri, 30 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 24, 2018 <p>lil hungover</p> Sat, 24 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 23, 2018 <p>Feels like these runs are over in seconds!! Feels amazing for running to not be a painful hassle and to really lose myself in thought on the beautiful scenery</p> Fri, 23 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 22, 2018 <p>7 easy miles on a cold Thanksgiving&nbsp;morning, I guess this should be a post of inflection.</p> <p>Wow. Life isn&#39;t a lazy river of feelings, it&#39;s a rollercoaster of emotions. Sometimes it feels like you&#39;d rather just have that stagnant flow instead of the wild ride that living truly is&nbsp;because everyone wants the good parts in life, but no one likes rougher parts. It&#39;s crazy to think objectively this was the hardest year of my life, easily. I won&#39;t reiterate information I&#39;ve put in prior posts or would like to keep to myself, but this last year my life went a way I&#39;d never imagine it&#39;d go. I also met some amazing people and had without a doubt some of the best times I&#39;ve ever had, times I feel bad that others may never live life enough to experience. But, maybe the bad times I&#39;ve gone through this year are why I got to experience the amazing ones. Maybe you need to have nothing to appreciate everything. Everyone wants to love somebody, nobody wants to lose someone. Everyone wants sex, no one wants unplanned pregnancies or AIDS. Everyone wants the highs of life, no one wants the lows that can follow or&nbsp;preclude&nbsp;it. But, once you&nbsp;realize life is really just a game of risks, you become precautious and thrive.</p> Thu, 22 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 21, 2018 <p>7 easy on a fall afternoon.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 21 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 20, 2018 <p>6:19 pace for a brisk run on a brisk south fall afternoon. Quads cramped up towards the end.</p> <p>eugene tip of the week: watch out for laced weed&nbsp;if you&rsquo;re about that, and the best fashion designers are obscure. big-name companies like YSL and Gucci really think it&rsquo;s fashionable just to go against the grain bc they&rsquo;re rich and don&rsquo;t realize creativity&nbsp;and innovation&nbsp;aren&rsquo;t the same thing. your models look mentally perturbed and are wearing garbage bags on the runway</p> Tue, 20 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 19, 2018 <p>Ran for 50 minutes on Sandy Rd this pretty AM. Surprised the pace was 7:0x because Sandy is one of the hardest places I&#39;ve ever run, and I was jogging it. Hills helped loosen up the legs.</p> Mon, 19 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Nov 18, 2018 <p>6x400m w/ 200m jogging rest. Originally wanted to do 3x4x400 in 80, 75, 70 but I think that&#39;s getting ahead of myself. I took essentially a year w/ no running and have been running for a week. Anyway, did 76, 79, 76, 76, 70, 68. Felt like I could have done one or two more, and the 70 and 68 felt controlled, legs were definitely&nbsp;tight though. Barefoot cooldown and strides. I think I pulled a muscle in my tongue hanging out with a girl last night</p> Sun, 18 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 17, 2018 <p>4 in the morning. Had a side stitch.</p> Sat, 17 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 16, 2018 <p>4 in the beautiful morning. Right knee was a little tight.</p> Fri, 16 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 14, 2018 <p>5 in the rainy afternoon</p> Wed, 14 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 13, 2018 <p>5 in the windy afternoon</p> Tue, 13 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 12, 2018 <p>3 in the rainy afternoon</p> Mon, 12 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Sun, Nov 11, 2018 <p>AM - 3. Wanted to go longer, but I&#39;ve been congested the past few days and the harsh morning air wasn&#39;t doing my lungs any favors. Bought some salmon after. Might go run later today.</p> <p>4 in the pm, with 4 400&#39;s thrown in for fun, nothing hard. Ran 79, 75, 64 going 34 for the first 200m and speeding up, then 74. It&#39;s sort of fun not being in shape. On the last 200m of the 64 it felt like I sped up as much as I could, but it didn&#39;t hurt.</p> <p>Eugene&#39;s fact of the week: Protein phosphorylases use free-floating inorganic phosphate in place of adenosine triphosphate(ATP)</p> Sun, 11 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 07, 2018 <p>Eugene&#39;s tip of the day: vitamin b3 helps combat depression</p> Wed, 07 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 06, 2018 Tue, 06 Nov 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 05, 2018 <p>So, an update on me. After a long downward spiral the past year and a half or so, I think things are finally looking up. The only blog friendly detail I can share is I&#39;ve been homeless the past 5 weeks or so, but things are better now. I lived in the school library so I was able to stay in school and keep my scholarships and got my weight down enough that I&#39;m about 30 pounds lighter than last semester. I&#39;d like to start running daily again, I think everyone needs some kind of vice and in my experience runner&#39;s high is one of the better ones.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Hope everyone on the blog has been well.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Eugene&#39;s tip of the day: exfoliation&nbsp;wash and vitamin C serum for a softer face and clearer complexion</p> Mon, 05 Nov 2018 07:00:00
