My story will one day be told on paper.

I biked for 15 minutes and ellipticaled for a half hour.  i decided to give the peroneal a rest and hammer the quads.  Unfortunately that was hard to do.  Apparently elliptical endurance carries over to biking more than running to biking.  I figure that if I can make the numbers blink I’m getting a good bout in for the session.  Andreas is right. Im too dramatic with my running.  But he does understand that this is almost everything I care about relative to my peace of mind.  There is more, but this is definitely large enough to not be cut out of the loop.  I do know Im happy to be in school. 6 hours today was enough to make me realize life would be pretty miserable if this was how i made a living.  Once a year is fun. It wouldn’t be fun 52 weeks a year.  If work is fun more often than it’s boring or miserable than a career is a win.  Time to go comatose for the last time before being sleep deprived and dead in the airport field with angry customers; it’s supposed to thunder and lightning this weekend lol

Unhealthy love is being powerless, selfish and enabling. It has no boundaries. Unhealthy love is unconditional and yet contingent. It is immature, irresponsible and dependent. Unhealthy love is urgent. There is a desperation behind it which produces manipulation and compromise of self. Unhealthy love is a pissing contest, a tug of war, a mute silence and a kick stand. It is obvious. Unhealthy love promotes the false self and stunts growth. It is a drug.

Healthy love is a choice. It is something you decide to give as a gift. It has conditions that shape the self and strengthen the other. Healthy love is feeling powerful and independent. It is grilled cheese and vegetable soup on a rainy day but not every day. Healthy love is patient, kind and accepting. Healthy love requires a tremendous amount of responsibility which involves communication on all levels and constant reflection. It is building trust, having faith and holding a commitment. Healthy love promotes growth and two strong containers. Healthy love is rare.

Strengths

Be wary of strengths much like weaknesses.  The stronger the strength the more potent its force.  Just because a strength exists as such in the current state does not guarantee a constant consistency. A strength that becomes a weakness can be more dangerous than a weakness on its own.  What once was a leg of support becomes a splinter of equal and opposite caliber.  My greatest strength was my legs; now they are my biggest weakness.

Finally getting sore in the right muscles.  The peroneal feels less sore and my gastroc is on fire.  Coincidentally, the lateral end of my ankle is also doing better too.  I don’t think of it as coincidentally, so i guess i shouldn’t call it a coincidence.

Well I’m going to try and play to my genetic strengths here and build muscle in my legs to get more strength and rid myself of these strength deficiencies.  I just need t be smart about this and not gain fat lol though I’d have a ways to go before health would become an issue, but the most important thing is getting stronger so i can physically tolerate running again
