Current Preoccupation: not sleeping? Sleeping in cars? Usually it involves how to get sleep and food on a regular basis because of too much doing elsewhere. Reconciling the image imposed on me by others. Fast tracking myself to burnout or great things. It's scary. Two classes outside of work, work, and mountains and mountain running are occupations too, I think. They're certainly an identity.
Previous Preoccupations: radio, arts and cultural nonprofits, dating and relationships, personal downtime
What about water availability? That seems like something that's going to be a huge deal moving forward. Especially the Rockies and West in America, and obviously every place near the equator worldwide. How do manage 5 year droughts, how do we collect water during storms and safely store it in aquafors.
- At this point climate change has happened we need to work on dealing with the consequences and effects as they happen and affect our citizens.
What does that look like to you?
Can you clarify what you did say, then? If I am not intelligent enough in my reading comprehension I would appreciate help in developing an understanding of your point(s). I want to ask you point blank: Do you believe in human driven climate change?
Edit: Also, you do realize that that was a very demeaning way of engaging?
- Change is its natural state.
The human effect on climate is one aspect of change.
Change is its natural state until you look at CO2 emissions, global temperature rises, forest fire incidences, glacial levels, etc. etc. from the industrial era on. It's an extremely significant and extremely unnatural effect we have had on our climate. How can you possibly say otherwise, or have such a defeatist attitude? Mapping Yellowstone? Fuck off, dude. Any learnings or mapping will happen concurrently with other changes around the world and it will be too late to do much about it at that point.
We are already experiencing it. Go step on a glacier anywhere in Washington.
Do you have a heart rate monitor? Thinking it's about time I bought one.
Yes, it is. Here's a lot more information.
- “The correlation between unemployment and suicide has been observed since the 19th century. People looking for work are about twice as likely to end their lives as those who have jobs.”
Happy to hear I'm on a very similar schedule to the author of this article.
- When I don’t have a marathon on the horizon, I’ll end up covering 30 to 40 miles a week. In the three months leading up to a marathon, I’ll do 20-mile runs on the weekend and speed up some of my commutes. Those weeks, I run closer to 50 or 60 miles.
Following a program is essential if you're serious about running a "good" (whatever that means to you, or Boston in some cases...) time. People like Jack Daniels, the physiologists in this article, and elsewhere praise VO2 max estimates or actual studies, and looping in interval and other types of training into your schedule. Running fast is a delicate balance.
