achilles exercises 27:00 intensity: (5:00 @0) + (10:00 @1) + (12:00 @2)

During brown bag. Yay for multitasking! Tired from waking up early for my echocardiogram (the second-to-last of the loose ends on the doctor front woohoo!!!!!) but rhr was lower last night, so hopefully the sleep tracker will like me again soon. In either case, I’ve never seen pictures of my heart before, so that was really cool! I should’ve asked them if I could have a copy of the data. Maybe they would’ve said no. I have friends who 3D print their brains, but not sure if the file format would be right if I got a file from them here, and also I don’t have whatever software id need to get it into the right format to 3D print. But now I’m reminded I should make a brain, and maybe a hippocampus too!

I have skate plans Sunday, so maybe tonight I’ll go for a walk during this zoom event about cookies. I also have a plan to go over to the cookie pickup location right before the deadline to see if they have any extras they need to get rid of :P the snickerdoodle one made me remember how long it’s been since I’ve eaten a snickerdoodle, and how I need to make sure I don’t forget about them again!

achilles exercises 25:30 intensity: (10:00 @0) + (10:00 @1) + (5:30 @2)

Achilles exercises, off skates, while talking to my friend on the phone :) Then went for a short walk and also got peanut m&ms from the vending machine! Tired enough to go to sleep easily I think, but not overly tired :)

Sleep was better last night, again, either bc I changed the timing of my dumb allergy stuff to be earlier, or bc it was from my vaccine and now it's done affecting me. Either way, I'm happy! Going to bed early bc of a morning doctor's appointment, so hopefully this will shift my sleep schedule earlier again for good :)

Also, I continue to be productive during work days now!!! I think that makes 4 days in a row!!! Even feeling good enough to get bored before I get tired :P

Walk/run 12:28 intensity: (7 @0) + (2:38 @1) + (3:51 @2) + (5:52 @3) 0.93 mi (13:24 / mi)
ahr:133 max:153

Very exciting milestone that attackpoint guessed my walk/run as a run :) I did a few rounds of walk/running at the beginning but then felt good and so did a really slow jog! Didn't feel terrible! And now I'm awake enough I might not even need coffee :o Achilles felt good, and I felt the ball of my foot a tiiiiiiny bit, but mostly good.

Afterwards went to go pick up my FREE COOKIES that the grad student association got us! There's a cookie-related zoom event Friday, but I decided I should eat my cookies now when they're freshest.

My physical activity for the day was I went for a medium walk (an hour-ish, non-snail pace) and was a bit tired after.

Very productive today!!!! Things were making sense, and I felt smart the whole day and never ran out of brainpower even though I still haven't been sleeping great. So much progress!!! Without any crazy effort other than sitting down at my computer!!!!

Also looked at some fitness tracker reddits, and people are reporting worse sleep and recovery metrics a few days after even the first dose of various vaccines, and so I'm not gonna assume the bad sleep/recovery numbers are related to physical activity :)

On the food front, I am now a person who eats spinach! There was only spinach available for my food box this week even though I like arugula much better bc it needs less stuff on it to taste good (and is better in general). But I decided to make the most of the spinach situation, and I had a really great salad tonight. Spontaneously! Without trying to make myself eat spinach! And it was great!!! Sadly, on the box it said there's only 3.8 mg of iron in the WHOLE ENTIRE BOX, and I double-checked to make sure I was reading it right, but I need to eat more veggies anyway, so I still might as well eat one that has 1/18th of my daily iron per serving (based on a very generous estimate of how much spinach I can eat in one serving). Meanwhile, I also scored some half-price beef jerky, which isn't too unreasonably priced when it's half-price :)

Productive day! Could be feeling better still, but I got lots of important things done, and lots of screen time without headaches :)
