    Nic-Bot 5000 enters recovery mode

    Hullo, folks! I really need to get better at this whole updating thing. Maybe that's a problem for next challenge though. Had a for the most part nice weekend! Went to my parents' house Friday night and stayed until Sunday evening because my brother was home for the weekend and we needed to close the pool for the upcoming winter. Monday, I actually spent the day doing some sight-seeing. Took it easy, went slow, sat when I needed too, and also took some ibuprofen for my knee so it wouldn't hurt while I explored. (It helped a little, but I was still a little achy). Had a lovely massage yesterday. Apparently the muscles and tendons around my injured knee are super tight, which may be contributing to some of the pain I'm feeling? Not sure what else I can do though, since I'm already taking care to stretch my legs. Short of either commandeering back my foam roller from my mom or buying a new one, not sure how else I can really dig into those areas around the knee... Honestly, this challenge is a bit of a wash, like the last couple have been. I'm absolutely lacking in motivation to do exercise because the exercises I enjoy doing are off limits until my knee starts getting treated. And unfortunately, I don't get my first physical therapy session until November 13th!! Almost a month to wait! Sure, I'm keeping up with mobility exercises (for the most part. This past weekend didn't work out so well, and this upcoming weekend will be spent on the road, so probably won't be able to morning stretch either though I do expect to get in some stretching at some point) but... it's not fun. I do it because it's good for me, but I don't necessarily get the same sense of enjoyment and fulfillment I did out of running and lifting. Don't get me wrong. The rest of my goals are going swimmingly, for the most part. But the fitness end... I really don't know what to do with myself in terms of physical fitness and it's frustrating me. I really hate doing push-ups, and even light cardio like walking can be painful at times. Stretching isn't super stimulating for me, and I'm not sure what to do anymore. I hate being so inactive.

    Mortimer's battle logs.

    Ran with local run group, slowest group and also turned back a little earlier then the rest as the guy I was following turned, so I turned too. I think I need more training on long upslopes. Breakfast: 1.6 cups of almond milk 300g okra fried with an onion 1 cashew nut chicken zucchini boat Usual decoction: 1 tablespoon fennel and cumin, 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds Just for fun, I tried jumping up on the bed at thigh height in my pajamas. I cleared it fine..? I don't know what's my problem jumping on low walls, I speculate is it because I'm wearing shoes so it would be higher then thigh height if I were barefoot so I have no confidence in clearing it? Lunch: 150g cauliflower 150g lotus root 10g sesame seeds 90g sesame chicken 20g hulled pumpkin seeds A peach

    My way towards OCR

    Nope, bad Aramis! You do NOT run in a blizzard. *jumps up to smack Aramis on his nose with a rolled news paper* Yep, I'm that short lol(5'2) I think you ate too much. I ate too much before running and ended up walking up the hill once >< Though yesterday I ran a bit less then the usual group cos I saw the guy I was following turn, so I turned too. Anyway will try do the half marathon thing today in the afternoon.

    “What Tank said” - Ranger proverb Also I think it makes sense to get new washer/dryer/dishwasher in NZ rather than hauling yours across the ocean with you - you might even get a place that comes with those machines already! I know that happens here as people don’t want the fuss of moving all those big things, especially as we tend to have our laundry in the basement in Canada. And then you won’t have the cost of shipping yours, and the difficulty of trying to get parts and all of that stuff you mentioned

    Glad to hear that you have made substantial progress on your sleep debt. That should be some comfort when the Patrician brings up the topic. Your app to keep you on task sounds like just the thing. How is it working now that the initial shine is wearing off?
  13. Still so cool! If by “cultivated a hedge” you mean “my dad took the clippers to the hedge and chopped a whole bunch off when it got too higgledy-piggledy and offended my type-A mom”, then yes, I have seen a hedge be cultivated
