8½ minute kilometres

So since the really good run when I smashed my records, I've had a few not-great runs, but it definitely does feel like I'm managing 8½ '/km now even when it's a less than perfect run.

5 km on Saturday starting from our new house, which is about a mile from the river and there's no really good route. Apart from it being unfamiliar there's a couple of big roads and lots of little roads to cross. So I was pleased with a time of under 42 minutes overall.

Tuesday my lungs were just not cooperating, I felt like I couldn't breathe deeply or find a good rhythm at all. So I decided I couldn't face running uphill and carried on down along the railway. 3.6 km in 30 minutes, just barely and even running downhill which should in theory be a bit faster. But at least I had time to walk the couple of miles home, probably the last time this year it'll be light late enough.

And today was better than Tuesday but still not particularly great. Another 3.6 km in 30 minutes, this time reasonably comfortably and including the mile+ uphill section. I really need to join a gym again, I think, I'm not going to be able to run after work for much longer.

I moved on to week 5 today. I looked up what I was supposed to do and decided that was doable, and indeed it was.

However, I'm supposed to only do this once, and then move straight on to a more difficult run?

Dear Evil Laura,

dream on.


Therefore, this was week 5, day 1, session 1.

It was three times five minutes with three minutes walking in between. Not super different from what was going on in week 4, so I felt pretty confident. It wasn't too difficult today. My breathing worked out fairly well, I was able to actually lift my feet, and I was also able to try and speed up a bit on the last minute of the final run.

I think I will do this session one more time and then see how I feel about moving on to day 2. (I've seen day 3. I'm scared of it. Seriously. It's the stuff of horrors and nightmares!)

I really really needed a "white flowers and MURDER" perfume for work today. The J-Horror BPAL from [personal profile] synecdochic worked wonders today.

I woke up substantially before my alarm, and decided to say fuck it and get out of bed around 8:30 (only a half-hour early). Then I took a leisurely drive to work, chatting with Nora the whole way (well, post-coffee).

My Overlady popped over to see what was the matter, that I was in at the normal beginning of the engineering day. I explained. Her 12:00 was with someone I have dearly missed; I suggested some choice snippets to mention. Basically no sooner did she pop off to her own office than lb and the angry man with all the tattoos showed up. My cube was a distracting cave of wonders, but we went over the sortable chart of grouses (the wiki page with the timeline of the helldesk software, the sortable wikitable with requested improvements, the R&D end-user profile, and the picture of the ruffed grouse) and made a few edits and priority confirmations before marching off to the meeting itself. Beldorion was not in the office today, and Gramp had a conflicting meeting.

The meeting was on the ass-end of campus, in perhaps literally the furthest building from where lb sits: definitely the horizontally furthest, although there is a diagonal building which may have a little greater actual distance. Some people were at no pains to be friendly to engineering-land. We got there a minute after by my watch, while the people already in the room were giving it a few more minutes to see who else would be there and get the webex started.

I was correct in yesterday's assertion that today's meeting was unmissable. I believe I am recalling my manager verbatim when I relate that her instructions to me were: "Give 'em hell."

In the room: the aforementioned incomprehensible twerp, the highly placed dev running the demo, someone sitting quietly and shutting up, Too Much Eyeliner Lady (somewhere highly placed in local ownership of the helldesk software, but a consummate buck-passer), someone from IT, and then the engineering-land contingent. We were, in order: the Desert Islander, very chill; the Angry Tattooed Man, angry; lb, stern; Azz, by turns stern and earnestly, specifically, functionally constructive. Engineering-land contingent got printouts of the wiki page for reference. lb and I took notes (him every now and then on his phone, me with pen and paper).

The engineering contingent post-mortem lasted the twenty minutes back to engineering-land, with further follow-up to follow at some point I am sure.

Lunch was with Purple, and pleasant. He has an ambitious project to spearhead with the knowledge and blessing of his manager.

Wednesday is the day when the cafeteria does their hump day takeout program: place your order before early afternoon, and you too can take home a corporate cafeteria quality meal at takeout prices. It looked decent, so I ordered.

My Overlady came back from her 12:00 with many bits of information. She perched on my couch and shared the intelligence from this meeting. Oh, my.

My computer's been in need of a reboot for a bit, so I was chipping away at getting the things done that I needed to get done before that point. Eventually it hit mid-evening. I pinged Purple and (after flailing at [personal profile] sithjawa a bit) mentioned the concept of dinner, and did he want any. Which he did. We opted for my cube this time. I have a guest couch! He said he'd be over in a bit, and to feel free to start without him (always a dangerous statement from an engineer). I was just separating the plates when he arrived. It's nice to have guests in my cube! I began to tell him some of the highlight from my Overlady's 12:00.

I heard Designer Sparkles coming out of an office. "There's nobody here at this hour!" she said. "No," my Overlady agreed, "except maybe Azure." Designer Sparkles wandered out of the office in search of places more like home. And as my Overlady came around the corner, there I was! With a Purple in my cube.

Then followed a delightful conversation wherein my Overlady shared intelligence from her 12:00 with Purple, we compared some experiences raising hell in school, and all in all a great time was had. My Overlady headed off in search of her own dinner, and we finished ours. Then Purple went back to his desk, and I had the joy of a very crashed computer in need of some Windows updates. My next task: install Notepad++, because I do much better about autosaving in that than in Windows Notepad. (Which I just typed as Nopetad.)

Parking lot conversation was largely fishbrick. Also puddinghandle, toiletjello, blenderpoop, shortsheet, notebolt, and other mostly theoretical forms of mayhem. To be clear: very few of these are actually good ideas to do! Puddinghandle: mix up some very, very chocolatey chocolate pudding. Put a roll of toilet paper on top of someone's car, to catch their attention. Spread the pudding under the door handle. Toiletjello: this is a Shawn stunt. Mix clear gelatin with the boiling water. Pour into the cold water of the toilet bowls at school. (This works best in a cold climate.) Allow enough time to set before the students come in. Shawn was disappointed in the janitors in that they did not think of the hot water (add more hot water, perhaps from the coffee pot, to dissolve the jello safely) and instead removed it by hand. (Purple: "That would be an unforgettable parfait.") Blenderpoop: targeting the Insufferable Smoothie person, either by actually doing it (ideally with multiple DNA sources) or just leaving a note with a crude depiction of a stick figure pooping in their blender. Shortsheet: this is the classic prank. Notebolt: leave a few spare bolts on somebody's desk with a note saying something like "I think you'll need these." The bolts are not actually from anything they own, but they spend some time looking fruitlessly. (Sort of like releasing the five pigs, numbered 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, into a sufficiently large building.)

Beardwatch 2014: still on.

At the end of the day, I still smell faintly of white flowers, although less like murder.

Every time Slacktivist links to the Velveteen Rabbi, I o_O a little bit. But when he links to the Velveteen Rabbi talking about her article "Fan fiction and midrash: making meaning" in Transformative Works and Cultures, the whole Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man just comes crashing down. I mean it's awesome. But surreal.

no. go away.

I'm a little late with this, as I did the run yesterday.

It was difficult. I was moving at a pace only just precisely faster than speed-walking and my legs were just generally unwilling. I blame hunger. I was a bit peckish when I got home from work, but didn't have the presence of mind to eat some fruit or something before going out on the run. Which in turn led to being ravenous by dinner time and eating about twice as much as strictly necessary.

Note to self. Do not go jogging while hungry.

The time wasn't my slowest ever though, which came as rather a surprise for me. So far my times on this route have been very clearly divided into two groups. A group with times around 45-46 minutes and a group with times around 48-49 minutes. I find it peculiar that there aren't any times in between, really, but there you are. My time yesterday, much to my surprise, was my fastest time yet in the slow group. Odd. I had expected it to be the slowest ever because I felt like I was barely moving forwards.

I've done week 4 five times now. I'm not sure I'm ready for week 5 yet, but I might try week 5 next time. I'm just getting bored with week 4 now. The feeling of lack of progress is frustrating. It'll be hard, but I think I should be able to handle it. Maybe. We'll see tomorrow, I guess.
