Managed 40km/1100m elevation in the pouring rain and unexpectedly cold temperatures before DNFing. Absolutely nailed nutrition, hydration, plan, pace, & HR but I couldn't stay warm. Sucks but I'm not built for the cold, I was expecting warmth/heat today. I am rolling into a training block for a 50k in August and wondering if I could fit in a solo attempt at the 80km in the fall. It would be a shame to waste all this readiness.

@recollir Thanks! I have never liked the cold. This was a very loud confirmation! But I am plotting a course for the 80 and thinking I might use the 50k as my last long run for it. Hmmm we shall see!

The DNF is rotting my socks! I am going to call that 40km a last long run before tapering and I will have another kick at the 80km in three weeks!

A very EXCLUSIVE race. One runner! One aid station at the halfway point (Yay fam jam crew!). An out and back along a local trail. The inaugural @ThunderHoneySnow Ultra!

Free registration. Start time before sunrise. GPS watch timing. Race photography by selfies.

Some pretty incredible writing here.

"I’ve been in this position so many times that it exhausts me just to write about it. Sometimes, it’s not that I’m afraid of men; I’m just really, really tired."

@MichaelPorter @dajb @sboots Her description is piercingly accurate. The soothing of men so they don't harm you requires an exhausting level of precision. The emotional labour that non males have to do takes up so much energy.

People who were repeatedly vaccinated for COVID-19 — initially receiving shots aimed at the original variant, followed by boosters and updated vaccines targeting variants — generated antibodies capable of neutralizing a wide range of SARS-CoV-2 variants and even some distantly related coronaviruses.

Live H5N1 avian influenza can survive in meat cooked rare, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has found.

In a study conducted this week, USDA scientists discovered that hamburgers cooked at 120 degrees Fahrenheit – the temperature of a rare steak – contained live traces of a substitute bird flu virus. The agency said that no virus was present in burgers cooked to 145 degrees (medium rare) or 160 degrees (well done).

First, the & I did 3.7 miles, and saw a sweet baby squirrel w/its momma. Then I had a great today, good distance, great pace, had a solid sprint at the end, everything about it was great.

Except I had one of those awful experiences: a fly, flew into my mouth, straight to the back of my throat.

Three minutes of coughing and whatever managed to dislodge it, but ugh was that awful.

In my research I asked farmers how they evaluated farming practices and increased biodiversity was one of their metrics. They were right!

Nearly a quarter of U.S. mammal species are on the endangered species list. Researchers say farming with biodiversity in mind may help stave off further decline."

Long Covid can impact "everyone, regardless of age or the severity of one’s original symptoms.³ The largest group of people living with Long COVID is younger than one might think. According to the CDC, U.S. adults ages 35-49 had the highest rates of Long COVID symptoms . . . Plus, a recent study showed that by one’s third COVID-19 infection, patients have a 40% chance of developing long term symptoms"

⚠️ 🚫 Proof that our milk supply is not safe!!

Scientists warn Canada 'way behind the virus' as bird flu explodes among U.S. dairy cattle

"Without a "robust national surveillance program, there's no way to know if there are infections here or not."

"(The agency ....saying it is "not currently testing raw or pasteurized milk," adding that the virus isn't a food safety concern.) "

More than half of cats died after drinking raw milk from bird flu-infected cows. By contrast, only a fraction of cows — up to 15% —developed signs of illness in herds with the infection, the scientists said.

Stay away from raw milk or raw milk products.

Calls for active surveillance on both sides of the border after H5N1 spreads across 9 states

Newly released research from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also showed profound impacts on farm cats — with a death rate of around 50 per cent among those fed raw milk products from infected cows.

@Snowshadow There is little incentive or support for monitoring. Without the push to proactively monitor, we will end up with the same problem that the US has - massive spread before anyone notices.

Higher levels of CO2 increase survival of viruses in the air & transmission risk

“We knew SARS-CoV-2, like other viruses, spreads through the air we breathe. But this study represents a huge breakthrough in our understanding of exactly how and why that happens, and crucially, what can be done to stop it.

“It shows that opening a window may be more powerful than originally thought . . . causing the virus to become inactivated much faster"

"A desire for a loud car with a modified muffler is predicted by being a man and higher scores on psychopathy and sadism," was published last year. "We found that it was sadism and psychopathy was predicting who wants to modify their mufflers, who feels more connected to their vehicle, and they think loud cars are really cool".

@GPJohnston I think the difference is that a big V8 is experienced by the driver, a modified muffler is experienced by everyone within a few kilometres.

Life Pro Tip: Wash your produce. Wash your fruit before eating. Wash your veggies.
