    ♠ squat
    + Joker= 1 min plank

    I think I had extra frustration and impatience (tantek.com/t4fU1) to work out this morning.

    Perhaps it also had to do with seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens last night at the Sydney Darling Harbour IMAX (imax.com.au) - The “World’s Biggest IMAX”. In 2D, how it was meant to be seen.

    After the deck this morning, @zcorpan wanted to do a minute of burpees, so we did that too. 15.

  25. On Acceptance & Healing Post Injury: http://neverstopexploring.com/2016/01/22/the-north-face-ultrarunner-stephanie-howe-talks-acceptance-and-healing-post-injury/

    Having trouble with acceptance. Stuck on frustration and anger.

    It’s been over 2 months since I went for a proper run.

    I can’t say I've reached anything remotely close to a peaceful state of acceptance.

    At this point only sheer force of rational will is keeping me fairly disciplined about letting my knee heal fully (then wait 2 more weeks) before I run again. Not acceptance.

    Every day I take all the frustration driven impatience and force myself to think it through:

      The quickest way to running at my peak again is to let my knee fully heal, until it feels *the same* as my other (healthy) knee, no difference in swelling or pain, and then wait two more weeks just to be sure.

    Despite icing, every night I go to bed knowing I still can’t run, and every morning I wake up (sometimes hours too early) to the same.

    I cope through a mental exercise of gratefulness.

    Breathing deeply I am grateful for overcoming asthma as I did the past year (by running, ironically). I am grateful that I can walk smoothly, even quickly, without pain or asymmetry.

    That works for a while, and eventually the frustration returns.

    Fortunately I have found exercises that are fairly easy on my knee, yet strenuous enough to push myself physically.

    I am grateful for stationery body-weight exercises. I am grateful for being able to do yoga, by myself or in a class. I am grateful I know my body well enough to adjust poses as needed. I am grateful my knee has recovered enough to boulder.

    I try to relax, reflect on all the feelings of anger and frustration, and use them to build motivation, drive, and intensity into workouts like a deck (tantek.com/t4fL2), or Sebastians (tantek.com/t4fT1). I confess the anger helps me push through, to keep pushing despite feeling short of breath, or muscles burning with fatigue.

    Setting a PR (personal record) this way is bittersweet.

    Whether by a few seconds or burpees, every such PR feels great. And yet, it’s hard to fight the feeling that it was achieved partially as a response to something negative.

    I’m not sure what else to do. I’m too stubborn to just give up, which is what “acceptance” feels like.

    Maybe it’s this emotional cycle that I should accept, rather than my injury.

    Nearly every day now I feel improvements in my knee. A little less pain or soreness in the morning. A little more flexibility and range of motion in yoga poses. Or walking a flight of steps, not realizing til afterwards that there was no pain.

    I am grateful for healing. I am grateful for the knowledge that I will run again some day, and when I do I will be stronger than ever before.

    I try to appreciate these improvements and yet it’s still too easy to feel impatient and wonder.

    When will I be able to run a mile around my neighborhood again?
    Run to and in @Nov_Project_SF?
    Run up & down hills?
    Train for my next race?
    Will I recover in time to train for my next race? (Bay to Breakers in May).

    I can already tell those last two weeks will be the hardest.

  48. a pngLast night my iPod Touch iOS9.2 wifi totally stopped working.

    The swipe-up control panel shows a dark grey circle instead of the wifi status, and tapping it does nothing.

    The toggle switch in Settings / Wi-Fi is stuck off and greyed out, unresponsive.

    After a full iOS reset/restore and restore from backup, and even with Reset All Settings, the problem remains.

    At this point I have to recommend DO NOT UPGRADE to any version of iOS9 on any iOS device.

    I’m investigating the feasibility of downgrading the iOS version. The last fast & reliable version of iOS that I remember was iOS 7.1.2.

    https://indiewebcamp.com/favorite_quotes
    https://indiewebcamp.com/Year_in_Review
    and #indieweb examples.

    We will keep documenting, analyzing, deconstructing, reconstructing, designing, redesigning, building, rebuilding, iterating until as a community we’ve added the best silo features and UX to our own sites, and have gone beyond, with better features, that are more user-centric, more user-empowering, and more user-respectful.
