AM - 5-mile shakeout. gonna take a little while for these to go by as fast as a shakeout should.

AM2 - 5

PM - 5

today was supposed to go 5, 10, 5, but night shifts still have my sleep schedule messed up so when midnight rolled around today and i was no closer to going to falling asleep than i was when i went to bed at 10 i decided to get my first run in then and get my 20 by doing a quadruple of 5's, getting 2 hours of sleep after the second run, just enough to survive the day but enough that i'd be exhausted enough to pass out the second i hit the sack tonight. it worked in theory, i was actually just about to head out the door for the 4th run, but mentally i'm exhausted even if physically i feel like it'd be easy. honestly i'd rather be running those extra 5 miles on friday anyway, i'd get more out of it after 4 days of solid training preceding it. still, good to know i could have quadrupled today, even if the mileage didn't constitute it. it will soon enough though. june is the month the eugene of 2019 comes back with a vengeance

sotd: the glory - kanye. the opening lines of "can i talk my sh*t again? even if i don't hit again? dog, are you f*ckin kidding" is my running manifesto of the summer

AM - 5. woke up right at 3am! sucks at first but it's essential for me, especially now that it's the summer and runs between 10a-5p here are basically a death sentence.

AM2 - 5. gonna take an unorthodox approach to building mileage this week, but then again unorthodox is my orthodox 

PM - 5. ran at noon, and what i said after my first run might have been an understatement. heat index of 93F and was significantly more tan after those ~40 minutes

PM2 - 5. felt tired(expected), but wasn't hurting. now the real fun begins :)

sotd: the day the ... took over - dr. dre

AM - 5.

during the morning shakeout i realized today was gonna be a rest day; my legs aren't hurting but after the past couple of days they're definitely under strain. i'll do another shakeout tonight, legs permitting, and get in a couple solid days before the weekend. decided to take the PM off just to get some better rest and catch up on sleep

also, that patient i saved on sunday? he died later that night. not surprising since an hour of cpr turns the chest to mush, but he came back last night as covid positive. so that's fun

sotd: god has nothing to do with this leave him out of it - backxwash. a song i'd describe as industrial avante-garde horror-core hip-hop, aka my 7 favorite buzz words. add in the artist is an underground canadian femcee and the KILLER black sabbath sample and it's one more banger that i can't play around my friends without having to insist i'm not a satanist

also quick rant, i haven't had rice in a month or so but i'm incorporating it back in my diet and since i can't stand plain rice and i'm trying to cut out sodium so my usual soy sauce is out, i bought a few cups of campbell's tomato soup yesterday, with the intention of mixing in some garlic powder, basil and cayenne for flavor, and mixing that with the rice. well i looked at the nutrition facts before i made some for dinner and my lord, might as well call it tomato-flavored soda. SIXTY grams of sugar a can! i feel guilty about how sugary i take my coffee but i don't put half that in my 32 oz thermos i make every morning. suffice to say i did not make soup today

AM - off

alarm didn’t go off and i noticed my knee felt a little sore so i went to the chiropractor to get my hips realigned. she said my knee seemed a little displaced and fixed it and i feel better now. i’ll give it a few hours to set in and run tonight. need to be a little more attentive on hamstring/IT band stretches and foam rolling; i’ve been more focused on calves quads and glutes lately
