Crapped out on this morning's run. Was trying for a new 10km personal best but after 7 I couldn't keep the pace up & felt terrible, just walked/jogged the rest. Wish I'd pushed harder, was 4 secs/km ahead of pace, could have boosted my fitness a bit even if not making the goal. #running

Bit disappointed with the morning's run, was hoping to do a personal best but felt very sluggish & was 17 secs/km slower. Heart rate didn't get high, felt like I couldn't suck enough air in. #running

Had a long run this morning, enjoyable on a clear day but again very slow. Might just try doing Strides (short bursts of speed) instead of worrying about overall pace. #running

I swear in 2018 if a liberal centrist gets constipation they think it's Vladimir Putin up their arse
Another good hard run this morning over the 7km which is my usual short route. Post-injury best, second best overall and only 1 sec/km off my fastest. So tantalizingly close to where I was! #running
The fediverse is kept a largely safe and happy place by a fortress wall of medium articles the bemoan the fact that the fediverse is hopeless and will never succeed. That fortress wall was shoddily built for us by techbros and journalists and we must take responsibility for maintaining it. If we don't start repairing the cracking masonry with new medium articles about how mastodon simply can't grow fast enough for real humans to use it then the walls will crumble. Do your part.

You Don't Have to Love Assange to Fear His Prosecution
Urgh. Meant to run yesterday lunchtime but was too busy to take any lunchbreak. Ran this morning with a hangover, just about made it round the short route but felt really grotty. #running
