|Saturday, June 20, 2015, 11:58:46 PM- tumble like a cowboy|
I was having an excellent tough & delicious run in the woods
in the early afternoon today. There were beaucoups of people
out cycling, walking, running, so I chose the more remote,
I did not lift my toes up enough coming across a loose, rocky
surface and I stubbed my big toe really hard and I was suddenly
airborne. My feet found the ground again, and I accelerated in
a desperate attempt to stand up tall again. Could not catch up
and my upper body was parallel to the ground.
I stretched out my palms and made first contact with the ground
just for an instant before deciding to roll out over my right
shoulder, no longer accelerating quite so much, but I did
clonk my noggin begainst a big log.
I lay still for a moment just to see if everything was working.
I was on all fours and realized that I was only slightly banged
up. I stood up slowly and said - oh, man, I gotta go tell my
cat about this.
Right side hamstring deep into bum bone overstretch tendon
cramp persists. Right shoulder no problem.
Before I continued on I went back to where I first stumbled
and looked forward to where I landed. About sixteen feet
altogether, so I must have been really cooking when I hit
The mountain of love takes very good care of me. Even the
rocks are my friends. That is only the second fall of the new
season. I did go for a tumble in the muddy mud mud a couple
of weeks ago.
I will turn 63 years in 10 days. I still know how to tumble like
|Saturday, June 13, 2015, 9:55:24 PM- Every Run Is a Gift|
Saturday is normally a solitary running day. I am very pro-
tective of my solitude and do not yield easily if the schedule
has to change. I need to develop my focus and desire for the
run in advance, beginning first thing in the morning.
Today we had our annual Open House/Porte Ouverte at the
street mission where I volunteer. I had to be there to help out
this morning. We had picnic tables out on the sidewalk, face-
painting, BBQ, hot dogs, some local folkie/jazz players with
a little soundsystem, etc. Excellent weather. We hustled the
motorists for change at the intersection. I stayed until around
1:30 and then decided that we were not understaffed at all.
Lots of volunteers. So I said bye bye time to go run.
I not only had a serious powerhouse one hour run in the woods.
I also cranked out 70 continuous pushups down in the grass.
I had coffee at breakfast and I put that buzz to good use.
I always say to my 21 year old cat that I am going out to run
on the mountain of love. You are in charge while I am gone.
He just looks at me and says, Get Lost!
I was glad that I was able to be of good use with volunteer
chores, get the run in the woods done, and lounge around my
shack afterwards, naked, and looking at all the naked people
here in NN. Kiss all the lovely bums.
|Friday, June 5, 2015, 3:02:05 PM- Jump To Bottom|
Lordymama! Last night I slept like a rock at the bottom
of the sea! I have been waiting for sleeps like this to
return. 9 hours of delicious deep sleep.
Normally Thursday is a rest day. I walk in the woods on
the big rockpile right outside my door, but I do not give
my back or shoulders much work to do, because Mon -
Wednesday is peak of workout cycle.
I had to go to the street mission where I volunteer for
a meeting, and I found myself hauling heavy bags of
clothing and throwing them back up high into our
storage shed. I worked hard for about 90 minutes.
I drank 200 ml of 10.5% beer as a nightcap, and then had
another 200 ml about 4 hours later. Sometimes I can
sleep okay with less than that. Damn that fucking zopiclone.
It screwed up my sleep machinery Big Time.
But last night was just like the big monumental deep
sleeps that come with regular use of the ling zhi mushroom.
I did have some flying dreams, semi-lucid, as the sun was
I am enjoying a cup of coffee with breakfast at home. Look
at all the naked, sexy bums. Listening to classical music
on CBC Radio 2.
Food Bank chores start in about one hour. I better put some
clothes on and walk over there. I feel ready to rock & roll.
|Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 9:17:05 PM- 26th or 27th run outdoors today|
Not a warm day at all today. At noon I went out to run
on the mountain of love, the big wooded park just
outside the door of my shack. Dress warm. Last night
down to maybe 4 C.
My 21- year old cat insisted that I wait and share some
catnip with him before going out. Whom I to say no thanks?
I am just beginning to get back into uphill sprinting and
plyometric explosive motions, like steep uphill bounding
and stomping. Not a good idea to introduce ballistic
motion too early. So far so good, knock on wood.
Yesterday at the gym I finished my workout with some
medicine ball movements. Lie on back with 25 lb. ball
- roll up and throw vertical. Have not done these since the
gym was closed for renovations. That was tough.
I could really feel it today when I stopped in the run to get
down in the grass to do pushups. 50-50-65. I have been up
to 69 recently, but considering how big monday & yesterday
were in gym, this is quite alright.
These are the days I dream about all winter long. Get fresh
oxygen right from the factory. Let's hear it for photosynthesis!
|Saturday, May 23, 2015, 6:26:17 PM- Running On the Mountain of Love|
For the past two days I have just a slightly sore trout.
There are always lots of cold & flu bugs going around
at the street mission where I volunteer. I am not sick,
but I feel like I have doing battle, just a bit.
I debated with myself about running in the woods or
not. Definitely not a warm day, and quite breezy. Anyway,
I decided to try and just see how it felt. I brought along
a piece of chinese dried licorice root. Perfect medicine
for a sore trout. Dress up really warm.
That was the 22nd run outdoors since the ice & snow
disappeared. It takes a while to get into the shock of
running and jumping on rocky, rough surfaces. Just
beginning to readapt to uphill sprinting, scrambling,
Today I did lots of strides, crossovers, spinning and
twirling like a goddamn fairy. I got down in the grass,
or down in the dirt in the bush for three sets of pushups.
50-50-68 each set seperated by 10 minutes of running.
The last set always goes to exhaustion.
I found it too chilly to get down in the grass to do the
abdominals. I was plenty sweaty after the run and did not
want to get a chill. So came home and got down naked
on a towel to do trunk flexion, torsion, etc.
Windows are closed, doing naked stretches while gazing
at all the lovely naked bums.
Show the whole world your lovely naked bum!

you either love
women or you
don't. that's all
i have to say.
|Sunday, April 19, 2015, 12:11:42 AM- New Moon in Aries|
Lordymama! I have been waiting for this day for a
long time. First real run in the woods on Mt. Royal
this year. I have been out to run on asphalt paths
around Parc Jeanne-Mance maybe a dozen times,
gradually increasing pace and total time. Then do
naked pushups back at the shack.
Today I ran continuously a bit more than 40 minutes
total time. The back trails are a bit muddy, but what
a big thrill. I stopped twice to get down in the grass
to do 50 pushups - rest for 2-3 minutes then start
Got back home, stripped off sweaty running gear and
surprised the hell outta myself by cranking out 59
in the exhaustion set. Was not expecting that. There
is a strong symbiotic or mutual reinforcement effect
when I incorporate pushups into hill running. Naked
pushups back at the shack.
Very grateful for good chi herbs all winter long from
the new people in Chinatown. Hurray for good Ontario
ginseng! Hurray for ling zhi mushroom. Dust & snow
mould allergy symptoms are minimal this year.
I am always afraid of going out too far in first runs of
the season, getting all sweaty and then get a chilly
wind walking back. All proportions today were exactly
right. I feel good like I know I should.
|Monday, April 13, 2015, 10:04:41 PM- Total Kapow|
I ran for the 7th time in the park with no ice underfoot today.
After 90 minute walk on the mountain of love. I wore big
rubber boots and played in the slush & mud. Playing in
the mud is very therapeutic and transformative. Pick up
a stick and redirect the flow of the stream of melt water.
Then came home and changed into running gear and ran
on the flat asphalt paths in the park for 20 minutes. Come
back to the shack, strip off sweaty clothes and get down
to do three sets of naked pushups 50-50-55. Then do
240 naked crunches, twists and reverse situps. Then do
Ecstatic, tough workout.
|Saturday, March 28, 2015, 8:15:48 PM- Total Kapow!|
Just before 2 pm I went out for the first run outside,
in the park just to the south of my shack. Just across
the street from the mountain of love.
It was much icier than I had hoped, but I could not
wait another day. I do not run outdoors in the wintertime,
and the anticipation makes me crazy.
First run of the year! Nice and slow and steady. Everything
working how it supposed to do. Ice is still very dangerous,
but I was cautious. 25 minutes.
Come back to the shack, strip off sweaty wet running gear,
get naked and bang out 64 continuous pushups and then
beaucoups of crunches & twists. naked workout!
Did stretches and play with aged cat.
First run of the year.
|Monday, March 9, 2015, 4:35:21 PM- Beautiful Day|
I do not have glaucoma! Not at all. It is true that I have
two eyeballs that have unusual shape at the back, but
there is no sign of excessive pressure, and no malfunction
of the optic nerves. My peripheral vision is excellent.
I just now came back from Royal Victoria Hospital
ophthalmology clinic. Ophthalmology.
A very sexy nurse with fantastic cleavage sat in my lap
and licked a little gold star with her pink tongue and stuck
it on my forehead. She giggled and said now you free to go.
I took my jumbo sunglasses along because I knew that the
brilliant blast of sunshine on the pure snow would be painful
after the drops to dilate my pupils.
I don't have glaucoma!
