Run 40:00 intensity: (18:00 @1) + (19:00 @2) + (3:00 @5)
shoes: 9 2007 Saucony

Ran over to the school with Dasha, real easy. Then some 200s with 100m rest, jogging. I am slow. Did the first in 35 and the rest in 36. Maybe 5? I'll have to check. Back with Dasha but a little faster.

Rowing Machine 40:00 intensity: (37:00 @2) + (3:00 @5)

Special sauce workout.

15 minutes then the intervals started. Hit 130 and 49 at the peak and then tailed off as designed. 6 x 30 with 4 minutes paddling.

Note

ALu invited me to play golf in NC in April. I think I will regret it if I don't go.

It is noski, but all of a sudden I have lost one of my primary motivations to train.

Note

I have been thinking about what a factor analysis or PCA of people's assessment of the presidential candidates would look like and what weight they would assign to different factors.

Would personality (charisma and all those other things) and platform (ideas, objectives) stand-out as factors? Which would dominate? Are there other orthogonal factors?

Now, apply this lens to different electoral systems. How would this play out under timocracy, autocracy, plutocracy, etc? I'd be interested in the unfolding of the process as well as binary evaluations. How about in a caucus, primary, general election situation?

Weight training 20:00 [2]

Condensed weights. Dips, back, pull-downs, etc.

Bike 30:00 [2]

Level 11.

Run 20:00 [2] 2.33 mi (8:35 / mi)
shoes: 9 2007 Saucony

Level 8 hills. Intended to do 8 mph, but my upper left hamstring was so bad today that I couldn't even do that. By the end I felt loser, but decided to keep it easy.

Cross Training 20:00 [2]

Level 6 hills.

Note

Unfortunately, I seem to be having a relapse of the episode I had around the time of the HR SS Finals, viz., insouciance bordering on disaffection towards my club. Let's hope it doesn't become disaffectation. Anyway, I think I need a break. Maybe by becoming even more passive and uninvolved my heart will grow fonder? Are people with no cares happier? Perhaps. I will see how I feel if I don't care. Caring begets frustration. Will detachment breed bliss? Or is it ultimately ressentiment writ large?

Run warm up/down 21:00 [1]

Weight training 30:00 [3]

A good session.

Dips, abs, pull-ups superset. Unfortunately, a little rest in the beginning as pull-up station, then dips were occupied

16, 16, 18? dips; 10, 8, 8 pull-ups; and 50, 50, 50 abs.

Also, 2, 3, 4 plates x 20 leg press; light leg extensions, and a sweet new superset of 3 x (front deltoid dumbbell raises/30 lunges with 2x15)

Bike 30:00 [2]

Easy, level 7 hills. Wanted to read the FT, but I can't really exercise seriously and read the paper at the same time. Still some article about chess and strategy that I need to get to. Reminded me of my boy Katsenelinboigen, RIP.

Run 20:00 [3] 2.7 mi (7:24 / mi)
shoes: 9 2007 Saucony

Level 6 hills, 8 mph.

Last minute 9.5 to 10, to 10.5

Cross Training 10:00 [2]

Relatively easy warmdown on the armed cross trainer. A Few Good Men started, but I couldn't linger.

Cross Training 30:00 [2]

Level 6.

Run 30:00 [2] 3.5 mi (8:34 / mi)

Damper on 6.

Didn't leave work until 8PM and was exhausted.

A lame effort after dinner. Feeling mentally and physically tired.

Orienteering 55:00 [3] ***
shoes: Lop

DVOA President's Cup 2008.

A fun, but difficult exercise. Basically, you were given a blank map of Warwick and had to find and visit as many platforms as possible. They didn't have punches.

I did OK but ran to fast at some points and got off target. I missed one control and had to go back out to get it. Vadim got them all is a shorter time than I did.
