    - Classic Warmup
    - Pull-ups: 10, 8, 6, 6, 5

    Still feeling out of sorts and avoiding exercise in the morning (even the reduced recovery protocol). Hoping my 04:00 laundry run tomorrow will help me snap back a bit.

    Happy holidays again and thanks everyone!

    Dreams last night:
    Hanging out with Dave Chappelle in my home town in a garage. Garage was in airport and I drove home afterward.



    In Cali on train vacation. I hadn't planned any hotels and was just winging it. Girl lost a tooth at ??? and I was helping to look for it with my flashlight.



    Went to the office of Saturday. The CEO of my company and others would not socially distance and were trying to get very close to me without a mask. I kicked them away using side kicks and the CEO hit his head on the ground. Other employees kept attacking me.

        Ending a 264 day streak today with no exercise. Holiday stress + getting off of my schedule caught up to me. Will be good to have a fresh start I guess. With luck and discipline I'll be running tomorrow morning and resuming my usual schedule. Didn't manage my early laundry today so I'll try to do that on Monday (which I still have off for vacation).

        Dreams last night:
        I had a plan to quit vaping. A former housemate and I were left behind on a trip to the store.



        Jake Paul didn't want to be my friend. Playing CSGO and the last kill glitched out so the round wouldn't end. Playing a different game that was something with colorful marbles on a grid with an overhead view. [omg get this Jake Paul guy out of my dreams lol]

            No exercise again

            I will be resuming my running tomorrow with a shorter run. Also need to do laundry and groceries tomorrow. Been a bit of a bum but the only thing to do now is look forward and do better. Cut way back on sugar the last two days after a sudden spike in weight so I'll need to pay attention there as well. Running with five to ten extra pounds doesn't sound too crazy but I've hiked with a 5lb plate in my backpack before and it's very noticeable.

            Curious if anyone has experience with a cheap indoor spin bike (~$200 or less range). Do you recommend it? I feel like if I spent time spinning while vegging out I'd at least keep my cardiovascular system in shape and it'd give me something to do when I have minor running injuries.

            Dreams last night:
            Arguing with a former housemate about dishes. Ceremony? in street?



            At hotel restaurant talking about signal [phone app] encryption.



            At carnival with a friend. Another person was touching me intimately in the dark and then realized I was a different person with the same name as someone else. Carnival trash and subway system in my home town.

              Bikes are decent, I have never gotten into them that much. There are a decent amount of youtube channels that let you "bicycle through a place" so you can put it on the screen and make it seem like you are biking through some other part of the world.

                Do you have a normal bicycle that you could mount on an indoor trainer? I have this setup and I like it a lot:

                It's an old-fashioned trainer, not "smart trainer", and I got it for ~100EUR on eBay, including the yellow training tyre. You don't need a road bike for this, it works with most bikes. The big advantage for me is that in the summer, I take my bike outside and I can easily put the trainer parts in the basement, so I don't need a lot of extra storage space for something that I only use during winter.

                  - 30 min walk

                  So haven't quite gotten back on track but today was better all around and I caught up on laundry, groceries, and other household stuff.

                  Dreams last night:
                  Walked to the store to get almonds. A kid from middle school almost ran me over in his car. I walked back on the sidewalk.



                  In a haunted swamp with an old friend and a heavy storm was rolling in. My friend was navigating the swamp with a handheld sea scooter and I was nervous because of the storm and weird vibes. The storm cleared and we went back to harvest bananas and plants which we planned to trade with the local residents. There were tall spiky brown plants all around us.

                    Congrats on getting out there for a walk and getting so many chores done.

                    It does suck when an injury derails our training--especially in the winter when it's harder to get started in the first place. But you'll get back out there! You've worked hard to come as far as you have, and you can do it again!
