    - Classic Warmup
    - Sit-ups: 40 * 3 sets
    - 3.3 mile run in 29m40s @ 6.67 mph
    - Post run stretching

    Tonight was my coldest run ever (I think) at 23F/-5C. My gear was undershirt, synthetic wicking short sleeve shirt, long sleeve reflective shirt, leggings, shorts, running gloves, running hat, and a scarf. I was a bit nervous about it before leaving but it felt pretty great and now that I've survived I feel unstoppable πŸ’ͺ. No wheezing tonight for the whole run.

    Dreams last night:
    Friend visited and we connected via band. "Two people at heads, friend joins, we add someone via computer." An acquaintance fell and hit their head and was bleeding at a bar.

      Excellent, there is something pretty amazing about running in cold weather. Part of the feeling is that you were the only one tough enough to make it out.

        Yay for no wheezing

          Yeah, when you’re badass enough to go out and run in sub freezing temps...well, you are truly badass!! Good for you!! That must feel amazing

            CaptainCanuck I totally thrive off that feeling and makes me think of the video below. Thanks Gandhalfit and DorothyMH!


            Short run tonight was pretty easy and felt nice. Temp was back up to 45F so didn't have to wear subzero gear but I did bring my running cap and leggings to make it a bit more comfortable. I'm finally scaling back my video game time but haven't quite conquered my screen addictions. Just trying to be okay existing in my own head after work for now and will have to ease in other creative activities. A bit of wheezing on my run but nothing atypical.

            Dreams last night:
            My friend was blowing glass and a tree fell narrowly missing all of us. My leg got stabbed with a small branch but we were grateful to be alive.



            Former housemate [I think, almost illegible] dropped me off at a party. I told him I was writing dreams down. Burn(ing man inspired party).



            I was in a fancy office building and had to use the bathroom. A former coworker let me use an employee only bathroom. My pee was purple and fibrous with stringy bits. When I mentioned it someone said that it's normal when eating fiber supplements.

                - Classic Warmup
                - Sit-ups: 40 * 3 sets
                - Mage Workout Level 1

                Kept it movin' with my workout tonight. I spent a sizable portion of the day learning ardour which is an open source recording suite for professionals. It took a long time to even get oriented but now I should be ready to create some voice-based music and maybe use it for other stuff. Been meaning to learn this since getting a fancy microphone and am pretty excited about it. Didn't play any computer games (though I did play phone games) and it feels great.

                Dreams last night:
                Trying to build a planter with a former business partner. We had to regroup on the design because the original design was too complex.



                At a concert with grunge heads. One had a greenhouse with spiders in a hollow grid on the floor. I was fairly freaked out about the spiders in the cubbyholes on the floor. A woman fell.



                I was hanging out with a friend from elementary school and there were children around. A kid crashed his motorcycle into my parents house after doing a jump trick off the neighbor's house. I ran at him for using houses to perform tricks and threatened him with a rake/pitchfork. The kid disappeared while I was cornering him and then reappeared in a reflection of a glass door like some kind of demon ghost. He then appeared in the sky with wings. Later I was photographing near a jail and went inside. Mutants came to get me and one turned into a waxy ooze and reached through the bars reminding me of a Yochlol. I think one of the other mutants teleported through the bars and they were taunting me by saying creepy/scary stuff.

                  Forgotten Realms in your dreams is a good sign isn't it?

                    - 30 minute walk

                    - Classic Warmup
                    - Five Minute Plank Workout
                    - Pull-ups: 10, 6, 5, 3, 4, 4

                    Ended up playing with audio recording late last night and only got about 2.5-3 hours of sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about it. Today I got a new laptop and spent the day setting it up after my morning laundry/grocery runs. Overall a productive couple days and I'm grateful. I did play some computer games to test out the new laptop's capabilities (it's a beast). Tomorrow I have a virtual 5K race on the schedule and will do some more recording.

                    I ate ice cream and potato salad today and felt it when it came time to do pull-ups and I struggled.

                    Starting to wake up layers of myself that have been asleep too long. Must keep moving because there is no end πŸ™.

                            Thank you NancyTree, DorothyMH, and Gandhalfit! I meant to say that forgotten realms dreams are amazing. Even though it seemed like a nightmare I always enjoy when my brain kicks into fantasy mode. I really enjoyed the Dark Elf Trilogy by R. A. Salvatore and to be visited by a handmaiden of Lloth πŸ•·οΈ is a pretty high honor πŸ˜….

                            Tonight was my Virtual NYRR Run for Thanks 5K race. Did pretty well and secured my second fastest 5K best effort on Strava. Tiny bit of wheezing mostly in the beginning of the run. Not bad given that my diet the past few days has been primarily ice cream and potato salad 🀦. I had a high calorie smoothie before the race and that is something I need to get back into my diet (instead of so much sugar).

                            Spent most of the day upgrading software and getting audio recording software setup with synchronized versions on my computers. Wanted to get cooking and recording done today but will have to put that off until later this week. No computer games today which feels good.

                            2nd best estimated 5k effort (27:05)

                            Dreams last night:
                            I met Sacha Baron Cohen sitting on floor eating near [illegible]. Trying to learn to prank.



                            A former friend or someone broke my phone and wouldn't admit it. Will smith broke it [illegible]. [Dreams were pretty vague, feel like I got hit with the mind erasing device]

                              Congrats both on your 5k and on no computer games!

                              (That gif of the phone breaking is painful to look at though... )

                                I dreamt about zombies last night .. That's a first for me.
