    I've been getting ripped on my Milaana and going for long swims, it's done wonders for my endurance, where as before I was counting the laps, now I'm just going for it, swimming a couple of miles a week now.

    I miss swimming

    I was out of town, then had the flu, finally getting back into the swing of things this last week. Endurance was a bit shot but other than that not to shabby

    Not a professional athlete,but I run on a regular basis. Up to 50 km per week. The perfect combination to weed ☮

    Yeah. Up to. I would say the general mileage is around 30-35k.

    How can you use a term like "mileage" when you are talking about those funny "k" measurements? :hmm:

    :peace:

    I'm just stoned and not familiar with miles at all. Sorry, I'm used to the metric system. 30-35 km = 3-3.5 mil here in Sweden. Note that it says mil and not mile.

    Thats really up there. I ran a 10k once in my life (a few months ago) and my joints were killing me 3/4ths of the way through it.

    I used to be very athletic until my Achilles tendon snapped. I heard it break! Now it always feels like both could snap at any moment whenever I exert myself. It happened a few years ago bounding up a flight of stairs. Yep, I have never been the same.

    I've got a close friend who does weight lifting and even does competitions where he rocks his age division. Anyway, he started vaping after I sold him an LSV for fresh eggs and now he Vapes when training. He would do it for competing, too, but obviously it's not allowed.

    He tells me it gives him a very distinct advantage. It helps him focus mentally in a way he can't normally do so easily. It gives him positive thoughts and relaxes nerves, too. He doesn't need a lot, either.

    I went off the rails at Thanksgiving and haven't gotten back on yet. Happens every few years and I don't fight it.

    Stopped running and strength training and gave the middle finger to my usual chicken breast, whole wheat bread and veggies. Replaced the exercise with chocolate, crusty bread, red meat, honey baked ham, video games, cookies, ice cream, smoked pulled pork, pizza, red beans and rice and so much more.

    Whenever I fall off the exercise wagon during the holidays this way it's the new year and my annual 15K race, (Gate River Run), that gets me back on track. Been running this race every year for 15 years straight and I use that race to gauge my overall health as I age. If the day ever comes that I can't train for it or can't finish that race I know something is seriously wrong and it's time to hit up the doctor. If I'm not already in shape training MUST start on New Years day if I want to enjoy the race on 3/10. Basically 10 weeks.

    Loaded up some new running music yesterday, will eat everything bad that's left by the end of today (or throw it out) and get that first 5k in tomorrow.

    In case anyone else is interested in starting a running program or wants to fine tune one, the following is my favorite web site. Plenty of running insights for the novice on up including FREE downloadable training programs.

    Running us such a great medicine and means to reach a meditative state. The rush of endorphins in the shower after a 10k run is something else. Combining that rush with a puff on the vape while you munch away on something for recovery. Just gotta do the math, it's good for you ☮

    Ran three 5k's this week as I get back into the swing. Mon., Wed., Fri. Unfortunately Florida got hit with freezing temps so I've been using the "Dreadmill". I hate the treadmill compared to road running. Temps are supposed to get back to normal this week though. One of my favorite times of year to run. Sunny and cold......but not freezing.

    I'm an outdoorsperson who loves to get ripped before and during vigorous exercise. In fact, I typically only get stoned during the day time if I am headed out on my bike, xc skis, snowshoes or mountain hiking. I live in the mountains and my second home is in remote northern coastal Canada. I've done many ascents, particularly winter ascents, stoned out of my gourd. On my bike, I pedal up the fairly steep mountain notches, stopping only for a vape toke or two. Now its ski season and I head out to the world-class xc facility nearby, with my vape in an insulated case. I've already clocked 15 days on xc skiing this season and four full days this week. On the last day I took one toke and then skied in the slickest glidingest tracks of the year. Then off to the local microbrew for a fabulous lunch-sized portion of their own smoky ribs. Then back to the xc touring center with its over 100k of trails. Took the Crafty with me, the glide was amazing, I'm in decent condition, and so for the first time in my life I imagined that I was a real athlete!

    I feel so much better since I started vaping two plus years ago vrs. joints and pipes. I genuinely wonder if this is one of the reasons I'm making so much progress in my athleticism.
