  1. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/IMG_20140602_071645_zpsbavmaeef.jpg Notes: Ran in the rain today. Id like to blame the rain for my slow pace but unfortunately I think its just me. My pace just seams to gets slower. My legs always feel over trained and under recovered. Yet Im in less pain and my muscle seam to be functioning better, not as tight so I think despite the slow pace that Im still healing and making progress. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/A%20May%20Insttracking/IMG_20140603_074952_zpsmotyy70i.jpg http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/A%20May%20Insttracking/IMG_20140604_072054_zpsnjbvzd82.jpg This didn't go well. My back spazed out and I had to quit.

Calorie deficit cycling 500 to 1,500 calorie deficient a day for weight loss. My calorie breakdown target is 70% carbs 10% fat 20% protein and 50 g’s of fiber. To be timed around training.

For strength training it’s to continue improving back strength and pelvic stability. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/A%20May%20Insttracking/PhotoGrid_1401371311027_zpsiyj3px3y.jpg Notes: Recovery my ass.. That was the hardest run Ive ever done at such a slow pace! Yesterday was my first leg training day in several weeks and my rowing session in over a year and I ran intervals yesterday. So today I have jello legs that feel like someone attached electric shock therapy to. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/A%20May%20Insttracking/PhotoGrid_1401389054088_zpsdhiz7mmw.jpg Rowing Notes: Lifting post rowing 3×10 exercise to compliment the rowing.

  3. So did you take the job? IDK much about British zoos in particular. This is always a tough issue, because there is no clear cut answer. On the one hand zoos have do a lot of good. Some of the breeding programs have helped restore animal populations that were near extinction in some cases. They also educate and in some cases help support and protect wild animals. On the other side they also can't really replicate the wild some of the animals develop zoochosis. They become distressed, obsessive and depressed. There's good and bad in zoos. But I wouldn't not take the job because of the negatives. Being in the zoo and working there gives a chance to learn and make things more positive.

If anyone has good book recommendations or resources, or links to recipes for cooking I could use some help collecting this info.

  7. You'll get use to it. It took me a few months to get use to doing hook grip. Hurt like a .. .. I use to have to dip my hands in ice water after lifting. But I have tiny hands. It's bit harder if you have small hands.
  8. I haven't read any research studies on this but I've tracked my sleep patterns for years now and I can tell you for me it makes a difference. I recover and sleep better if I maintain the same sleeping hours every night. Any time that gets disrupted I see a decline in sleep stability following the disruption. I also see a decline my recovery and workouts. Like Monday through Friday I can sleep great, recover great and then if I sleep in Saturday I'm guaranteed Sunday I want be able to sleep good and then Monday's my workouts suck. It happens so often I try to schedule around it. But every ones different.
  9. Are you new to hook griping? It can take months to get use to. There's a callous that will eventually build up and help eliminate pain and numbness. Having that numbness is actually very common. Also make sure you are hooking the thumb correctly. (I'm not assuming you are not but since I don't here's an example od what it looks like.) http://articles.elitefts.com/training-articles/monster-garage-gym-hook-grip-101-its-a-love-hate-relationship/ Also .. you know commonly that nerve will just die. It happens and doesn't seam to hurt anything.
  10. I took the last three days off because my son is sick and I wanted to be around. He developed an infection in his ears, throat, sinuses and lungs probably as a result of the chronic allergy problems he's been having. Hopefully identifying the food allergies and eliminating those are going to help. He's been wheat, corn and peanut free for a few days now and we've already seen a some improvement. I finally went for a run yesterday but that's all I did. Since he is improving I will start easing back into training over the next few days. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/A%20May%20Insttracking/PhotoGrid_1401108402854_zpsui9crhzd.jpg my instatracking..
  11. I have a teenage son who has all year seasonal allergies and lately he's been very sick. He's on the verge of being hospitalized if he doesn't get better soon. His health has been deteriorating for almost a year now. Right now he has a sever infection in his sinus, ears, throat and lungs. We already knew he had severe seasonal allergies but we started doing allergies testing because he was sick all the time despite medical treatment for his allergies. We learned just yesterday that he's also allergic to wheat, corn and peanuts! So we have a lot of dietary changes to make in our house! Corn and wheat/gluten it's in damn near everything! So this will definitely be challenging! (EDIT IN-) So apparently I have the same food allergies just on a much smaller scale. I got tested after him because we have some of the same symptoms, like we both suffer stomach problems things like that. His are severe though where mine are mostly annoying. I had like a class one and his were a class 3 to 5.

OMG, That is never a good start to a hike! Seriously if you get nervous or panick at the sight of bee swarms DO NOT STOP and take pics! I wasn’t afraid of them so I knew if I didn’t get to close I was ok. Bees will know if your afraid. I was feeling a bit dead already so I kinda of thought FUCKKK this.. I turned my ass around and hike right back out! Found myself a breakfast and beer and chilled the rest of the morning!. There’s really not much you can do to protect your self from a massive swarm of angry bees. So I suggest if you run into them run the fuck away! Quietly .. but get away from them! If they attack all you can do is cover your face with a shirt and run. Don’t jump into water! They will wait till you come up for air and then attack!. Don’t scream or swat at them! Just run away. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/IMG_20140520_094912_zpst1z0kcpg.jpg
  14. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/PhotoGrid_1400548733964_zpsgztffliy.jpg Well honestly running was a bit of fail today. I’m so tight, it’s almost impossible to change paces mid run. Which of coarse makes the intervals impossible. The blocks on the left are my recovery periods and the red should have been done at 80% of max heart rate. As you can see that didn’t work out. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/PhotoGrid_1400589092988_zpsadv7fjc5.jpg http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/PhotoGrid_1400590250268_zpshqcs1koc.jpg My current focus: Nutrition Plan: Calorie deficit cycling 500 to 1,500 calorie deficient a day.

  16. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/IMGP2721_edited_zps6d2a3d29.jpg A little updating.. Basically I've been reassessing and changing goals again. I've jumped around a lot the last year trying to figure out and do what I could with the back injury. Then I had that last surgery and it through things way off again. I was told that I wouldn't be able to any expedition training, because of the heavy packs with hiking, cycling ect.. for at least a year. So I started looking for other ways to fill that time. Like the marathon training. But my back has actually been healing much faster then excepted. I've cleared to train with packs so basically everything has changed. I've been testing things out with relaxed hikes. Sometimes 2 days at a time and everything seams to be good so I'm preparing to move forward with actually training and goals oriented to expeditions again. Now I do still have to work on strengthening my back, I also have some pelvic tilting issues when extends from muscle weakness related to my past back problems. I aslo still have some minor problems with my knee and I have a stress fracture in my left foot. It would be better to let the stress fracture heal before starting this type of training but that's not an option so I'll just have to deal with it. Unfortunately this type of training is primarily done in the summer months and in order to be prepared with my group I have to start now or wait another year. A years a long time.. as long as I'm allowed I'm going to do everything I can to make this work. I also still have the muscle tightness that's interfering with my running so much. Running isn't 100 percent necessary for an expedition but being I'm a photographer it helps. So as not to slow the whole group down every time I need to take pictures. It also helps because if I'm in a good running position or "viewed in the right way" racing can help bring in sponsorship that helps pay for gear and expenses. On and by the way our long term planned expedition is into the bordering lands of Mexico and that's next summer. We're hoping to have about 4 to 6 weeks set aside for this trip. There are few smaller trips planned between now and then though. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/IMGP2851_edited_zps6d5dc5bb.jpg http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/may2/29_zps1ea409f8.jpg

Poor little guy was laying on his back kicking his feet and a making a ruckus of noise. He was trying as hard as he could to turn back over and it just wasn't working.

  19. I saw this on our local news and there's was no mention of charges being placed against the owner. I really hope that's not the case. To me that was not an accident and the owners should face some sort of criminal charges for it. The dog has either been trained to attack or not probably socialized. Either way I think they should have to face more then financial liability for this.
  20. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/PSX_20140513_142616_zpstufwtfzw.jpg I've been on a two day camping and hiking trip so not much to post as I don't track anything unless it's a training trip. This was was just for relaxing. So all about the fun.. lol. I did bring back a few pics. I swear from here on it's all serious training! We're going to get to work!

  21. Thought you might like this, amazing to watch if you have some spare time up your sleeve http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Pqd7MHZKco SUCH a gutsy run by her, especially as she was obviously quite sick over the last 5km or so. She is just an amazing runner!
  22. Hallucinations are pretty common in endurance type events. It's a combination of sleep deprivation, exhaustion and sometimes dehydration plays a roll. I always find them interesting. Usually like you said it's the mind looking for patterns and sounds it recognizes from a state of exhaustion. Sometime people are actually aware that what they are seeing is a hallucination and other times yeah it's like dreaming while your awake. I once saw Pinhead from the movie Hellraiser! LOL, He was in my motel room closet. It was after a 130 mile run through a desert and I was severely dehydrated and exhausted.
  23. I would have chosen clothing differently. Out of experience in hiking & running deserts, and being blond and blued eyes I tend to burn really fast to. I would have chosen a studded trail running shoe. I also would have worn clothing that block UV rays, wicked moisture and helped to keep the body cooler and help prevent rashes. I'm guessing though that Costa Rica that kind of clothing would be hard or maybe impossible for you to get. I haven't spent much time there. (I know leave it to girl to pick apart your clothing choices. LOL) How hot is there? Any hallucinations? And how did you manage hydration?
  24. http://i846.photobucket.com/albums/ab28/koraraving/May%202014/IMG_20140510_164246_zpsv0mzrvsp.jpg My current focus: Nutrition Plan: Calorie deficit cycling 500 to 1,500 calorie deficient a day. My calories breakdown targets are 70% carbs 10% fat 20% protein and 50 g’s of fiber. To be timed around training. Training Goals: For running the focus is speed. Increasing paces. For hiking it’s to increase endurance. For strength training it’s to continue improving back strength and pelvic stability. I took 2 rest days.. and then..

I sorta broke at the fourth red interval. I over extended and felt a sharp pain run through my lower back.
