Did Zamler’s buttstuff

Daily Note

Ran with Greco, Zamler, and Charlie today. We ran a 6 mile loop from Zamler’s house and when we finished we went inside to stretch and do his buttstuff. Today I lifted weights at home for really the first time as a runner. I came to the conclusion that the reason that I'm so susceptible to being outkicked is because I lack strength in my arms and upper legs. So today I grabbed two 10 lb weights and tried to simulate the pressure my arms face in the last 250m of a race. So, I kneeled on the ground and set a 40 second timer. I just pumped my arms like I would when running an 800. It was tiring and tough, but afterward my arms felt lighter and stronger. I did this two times. I think I'm going to try to do this as often as I can.
