Rolling with the unexpected

I was sort of psyched to run outdoors but ..didn’t want cold rain.

So after yoga, to the track: (outer lane this time: 40 laps of the outer lane of the Riverplex track (7.3 laps to the mile; splits are 1.096 miles, total is 5.48 miles:)
55:25. 12:18, 11:22, 11:02, 10:39, 10:01. I wanted sub 10 for the last 8 laps..but let myself slide to 5:08 4 laps into that segment and couldn’t quite make it up. So total, this was just over a 10 minute pace, which included the 2 slow miles to start with.

So, now to make up notes, grade, etc.

Note: the first mile was painful in legs felt heavy, my breathing was heavy and I just didn’t feel great. But I got going and it got better. Evidently that is normal for someone my age. No, I don’t have arthritis (though I was once diagnosed with it) but, I do need to warm up.

How the Democrats shake out

I admit that this surprised me a bit:

But it makes sense when one realizes that “tribes” may well have more to do with who one supports rather than ideas; Warren seems to be leftist as Sanders is, but they appeal to a very different type of voter.

And this is interesting too:

and for more of this hypothetical breakdown, check this out. By this, I’d be somewhat left of center but nowhere near all the way left; I suppose Liberal-Democrat in the UK would describe me.

How will this shake out? I honestly have no clue. My issue with Warren is that she doesn’t seem to have high political aptitude.

But, assuming my first choice (Klobuchar) doesn’t make it, she’d be my 3’rd choice, after Biden. And I have worries about Biden, though his being against federal legalization of recreational marijuana (though he is ok with states doing what they want). Oh, liberals are up in arms, but face it..given that recreational marijuana is already legal in 33 states, this won’t be a big issues…and I wonder how many stoners show up to vote anyway?

Yes, he is in favor of medical marijuana and no, it isn’t a gateway drug. But I really can’t make myself care about this.

What I do care about Evidently Major League Baseball has plans to dump some minor league teams. No, the Chiefs are not on the chopping block, but the Quad Cities Riverbandits, the Clinton Lumberkings and the Burlington Bees are. I sure hope not.

Workout notes Aside from a very rude, clueless cell phone user, it went fine.
rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10: good), bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, incline: 10 x 135, decline 10 x 165, military: 15 x 50 seated, supported 10 x 45 standing, 10 x 180 machine, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50 single arm, 10 x 110 machine, 2:30 plank. Note: I did 3 sets of goblet squats: 6 x 25, 6 x 25, 6 x 50, but was sore from yesterday’s dead lifts.
