Have started getting up early and heading out running before work in the week now. I'm only on week 3, but I'm already pretty adjusted to it I think. I do feel a bit sharper at work for it, but the real benefit is the 'extra' hour I get with the family in the evening with the run already out of the way.
Yay!!! Did the longest outing since I started a walk-run program 10 weeks ago (after doing the classic beginner mistake of initially running to far and too fast).
Almost 8.5K - have been implementing a bunch of tips on running form recently, and I can really feel how they're reducing the stress on my body and at the same time speeding me up.
So exciting! It feels like playing a video game, but with my body, and real :) Slowly getting better at it, understanding how it works :)
Decent run this morning, didn't quite make my goal but my fastest pace post-injury. Trying to be more "intuitive" so watch just tells me how fast I did previous km, makes it trickier to hit goals than if watching pace, but I'm less likely to push too hard. #running
Episode 96 of The East Coast Trail and Ultra Podcast is superb - "The Toughest Human In North America"
They interview Rhoda Smoker and Rhonda-Marie Parke about Vol State, a 314 mile run across Tennessee.
Rhoda won the race.
Rhonda-Marie did it alone.....Blind.
In complete awe of the woman.
(CW for the podcast. The guys are funny, silly, raucous, naughty and foul-mouthed. Use headphones)

How are you today!?
@rubah Thanks for the heads up. I'll take a look over the weekend.
OK I probably didn't need to join another instance but here I am anyway.
I'm a composer, working on a PhD.
I have some chronic healthcrap issues, including jointcrap.
I love to walk.
I would like to improve my strength and cardio fitness.
I subscribe to a Health At Every Size philosophy.
I have today taken the initiative to REMOVE the following protected axes from Fit Open's Code of Conduct:
We demand respect for our whole community. We strive to ensure the safety of every community member. Your political views do NOT eclipse our expectation for you to maintain a civil demeanor and respect to your fellow community members.
I know there’s a perpetual debate about #cycling #helmets and I would never dream of forcing anyone else to where one forcibly. However, today I was cycling home and I was passing a couple of pedestrians on a shared path on a bit where some of it had been blocked off. As I got into the narrowed lane, I noticed too late that there was a very heavy low hanging branch on which I banged my helmeted head quite hard (I mean loudly).
It was hot..i was slow..but the world was beautiful and i finished my 17k route again. The air is full of tiny insects, making it sometimes complicated to breath esp when one lands in the nose lol.
I have seen deers, rabbits and a young fox and lots of micro toads. :3 https://www.strava.com/activities/1651414586/shareable_images/photo_based/23341552/1/c6a09c53-3385-49f2-b8cd-4b6968e2b675?hl=en-US&v=1529525630 #running #runner #mastorunner #run #barefoot #vibram

Did a 20km bike ride this morning, hoping to cram in some swimming before I'm back in the office. Been letting it slide a bit lately, gotta do something if I can't run.
