Addiction LXXVIII

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yup. I don't like WD 40 for anything but water displacement (WD) and temporary protection, or as a penetrating lube if nothing else is available. I don't like to put a residue anywhere un-cleanable. In my opinion, Silicone or PTFE or maybe even graphite would the right approach after using rjones28 suggestion of a solvent.

Again, do not discount WD-40 as a foam remover. Especially dish soap in a dishwasher type foam. Especially when Mrs. LAJ is on the way home it needs to happen fast.

I'm not liking it, tbh. With kids in the house and no place to go, the weekend is no longer much of a break.

I like the move in theory, but sometimes bringing the kids along just can't be helped. That said, I've got enough wiggle room to leave the kids at home and I'm really liking shopping by myself - the kids and/or the wife really slow me down and shopping with them can be frustrating for a tactical strike shopper like myself.

Highly understandable. I have been on meetings recently where there was evidence of unshirted hell in the background.

I drove by a Wegman's this morning around 9am. The parking lot looked pretty full. Not Sunday afternoon full, but pretty full.

Pretty great-looking numbers, although I don't know what your HRV measure is—the differ. You need to establish a baseline over a few weeks and compare to that in order to pick up daily signals. Presumably your app does this. Both the daily values and the degree of the variance over, say five days or a week, are meaningful.

I agree. When Mom, Dad, and three kids are shopping, I agree with Menards policy.

Yeah, I'll keep taking readings. I'm interested to see how it varies after strenuous days, sleepless nights, etc. It's also interesting that higher variance is better.

No, actually higher day to day variance is a sign of stress, good or bad. Training stress seems to be able to produce increases and decreases in HRV the following day. From my own experience, I think I tend to respond to hard workouts with increases when my baseline fitness is high and decreases when it's not. In general, you want to return to something close to your baseline before hitting it hard again. I think it's safe to say that "bad" stressors, e.g., poor sleep, circadian disruptions, alcohol, always produce decreases.

Wait - high HRV is a sign of stress? Or bigger swings in HRV is a sign of stress? I was under the impression that higher HRV was healthier.

When you're saying increases and decreases, you're talking relative to your baseline? Like bad stressors will send you below your baseline and good above it?

Marbury played in China, lives in Beijing, and coaches a team there. He brokered the deal for 10 million masks at cost. He is not paying for them. Do you think Stephon Marbury would pay for 10 million masks at $2.75/mask?

Kraft was solicited by the governor to help. He sent the Patriots plane and (with some others apparently) paid for the masks. They would have brought more back, but the plane only fit 1.2 million. 300,000 of those are in New York this morning.

Facts are facts.
