What a day...

Dimitri and Liliya Nosarev
We got up at 6am to get ready for the Neways Maui Paradise 5K race. While I was taking a shower Liliya noticed a lightning. At about 6:30am a mighty tropical rain started pouring. We swallowed all the Neways nutritionals and went to the shuttle with a bunch of other 5K runners. When we came to the park there was already almost 1 foot of water on the road in some places. While we were warming up and stretching the news came that the 5K is cancelled by the local police department. So as sponsors of the marathon we stayed to meet people and help out. Few hours later we ran back to the hotel with some corporate guys from Neways. The distance was about 5.5K  
I will post more pictures and videos later. Aloha.

      Skiing under a moonlight...

      Dima i Lilya
      Today we left for our vacation home in McCall, Idaho. The roads were amazingly good after the snow storm we had in the last few days. When we got there we had a light dinner and then we went to pick up our skies from Gravity Sports. Even though it was very dark when we got to the Ponderosa State Park we were excited about getting on the trail. One of them had lit torches, the rest of the park was as black as the crow's wing. It left us only one choice: to follow the trail with the torches. It was very special to ski under the moonlight. The trees, covered with fresh snow, towered around us like ancient giants. Some of them with very weird, even frightening forms.
      It took us about an hour to get back to the car.
      I was so surprised that I was not tired. Looks like all the training I did lately is paying off.



      I am looking forward to skiing more in the next two days.



      When we got back we jumped straight into the hot tub with Neways Lavender oil. I jumped into the snow and back 3 times. Kids and Liliya did it two or three times too. Such an inexplicable feeling to go from hot to freezing in a matter of seconds.

      Have you ever jumped into the snow out of a hot tub? How did you feel? Did you like it?

          I am upset

          Today I am sore after yesterdays 5k run. It feel more like my tendons and ligaments are taking a beating. So I just did about 2 miles of jogging around neigborhood with my son. It was hard to do even that. Soon I will find out if I even go to Hawaii.
          But if not I promised my coach that I will run the YMCA 5k on January 1st 2009.

          From the results of the last year I know that I will not be last, but it does not look like I'll be first neither :)

          To get inspired I watched 5k World Record videos with Haile Gebreselassie:

            I'm thinking
            Went to the gym to do the 5k on treadmill. Did it in 26 minutes 30 seconds. Weight 202lbs.

            My wife Liliya was so proud of me, so she cooked an amazing dinner:

              A very BIG day...

              Six Pack
              Today was the biggest day of my life concerning running! When I woke up in the morning the soreness was gone. Thank you so much to the friend who left a useful advice. In the morning I took care of business calls and worked on my laptop to follow up with my business partners.

              Here is how the rest of my day developed:

              In the afternoon I went to the gym and did 3.5 miles on elliptical in less than an hour. This was the longest time I was on the apparatus in one time. I felt great, but also tired. My weight today is 204.8 lbs. In the evening when my coach showed up he said it's time to run 5k. I told him about what I did already. He congratulated me, but said I need to run to get ready.
              So off we went back to the gym (it's too cold outside, it will be -1F tomorrow night). He helped me to set up treadmill for 5k, which is a little bit more than 3 miles and I took of running. I did not push myself too hard and set the speed at 6, after the first mile I set the speed at 7, but after about half a mile, went back to 6. I finished 5k after 29 minutes and 10 seconds.

              Last time I ran so long was in the Red Army, I think. Or very long ago, anyway.

              Any comments?

                Too sore to do anything....

                Sleeping
                Woke up sore in my leg muscles. Payback from my last experiment. Usually second day is the worst! And so it is... In the evening went to sauna and swam a little. Feel a tiny bit better.

                I hope it's over by tomorrow morning.

                Too sore to write more : )

                Do you know any remedies for sore muscles? Please share them with me. Please...

                  I feel like I am back in Siberia...

                  In the winter

                  Today we went for a walk with Liliya. It was freezing outside. Very beautiful though. Snow, cold, windy...I felt like I am back in Siberia.
                  The rest of the day was busy with phone calls. Business is growing like crazy, thanks to the ailing economy.
                  So it is a recession proof business like I was talking to people about it. In fact,...well, it's a different story.

                  In the evening I finally made it to the gym and did 1.5 miles on elliptical in 19.28 minutes. Not bad, I think. Scales showed me 205.2 on the digital dial. Looks bad to me. I want to get under 200 lbs. By the end of the year! By now I think they mess with scales in the local Y just to make me mad.

                    I am upset
                    Today was another very busy day. I am still trying to get my Russian passport renewed. It is even harder than getting a US "Green Card", and that took me 10 years to get it : )

                    So in the evening there was no time, or maybe no desire to run anywhere anymore. I decided to compensate it with squats and set a target to do 300 of them non-stop in one set. After 100 reps my legs were burning and I actually asked Katya to count the rest of them, because I could not concentrate on anything else but squatting. When I got to 200 I was breathing heavily and sweating profusely. I was exhausted and the goal was dropped.

                    I gave up because I did not calculated my strength correctly. Which means that I have to train more to reach it next time. I wonder if anyone of you ever misjudged your abilities and set a wrong goal from the start. Maybe you have some wisdom to share about it. Please feel free to leave your advise in the comments.

                    Can you do 200 squats non-stop in one set? How many did you do?
