Chemgeek runs in the swamps of Dagobah

Recommended Posts

5 days activity 2 weeks running! 

 

Cutting out junk completely this week because I have developed a daily sweets habit. Also alcohol because I drank too much last week and with my family history a few weeks of abstinence is warranted. 

 

(I may just make a rule that I am not to drink on work trips full stop. I always seem to drink more than I should on them, so if something about work trips disables my ability to make consumption choices which abide by my personal rules for consumption, maybe I just shouldn't consume at all in that environment).

You are an inspiration.  cutting out the junk can be a hard thing to do and a really good idea.

It might be the best idea. I'm looking at doing that too. I have twice yearly trips that always have a lot of consumption. Will make it easier for me that I know one of the other people quit drinking too so it's nice to have a buddy. 

 

It's good to recognize situations that lead to excess and what needs to be done to correct it.

Yeah. My family history is... Problematic... When it comes to addiction. I don't abstain entirely but I do set strict limits and enforce breaks if I notice that I am breaking those limits.

Yeah, work trips present all sorts of temptation.

Mine too. Not horrid, but enough to raise concerns. Plus alcohol is empty calories. If I'm going to consume excess calories, I usually want them to contain chocolate.

 

Kudos to you for recognizing the pattern before it gets to be a problem.

Accountability: going on my long run tomorrow morning because my track is closed today and ice storm precludes running outside.

Sooooo... In hockey took a shot to the gut that was still v painful 20 min later. Called a health information line. Advised to ER. At ER. In pain. 

 

So. Not how I had planned my Sunday.

Verdict: Abdo wall injury, very nasty bruise, and bonus hematoma. 

 

I might have had some mild internal bleeding, will find out in 5-7 days if I suddenly get worse in which case I need to go back. 

 

On the upside, I was not the poor guy with a very obviously and nasty broken ankle.

Ouch!  My sympathy on your injury.

 

One more example of team sports being more dangerous than martial arts.

Gave Zombies run we a run a try. Found out live GPs tracking on my phone doesn't work with it so it was tracking my distance as the crow flies and I was running on windy roads... unless I have the app open so wound up running 12k in 1.5 hours.. will activate step counting next time.

 

On the upside, more distance. And now I have a lot of confidence that I can finish my 10k.
