@M.A.R. I cannot forcre myself to do interval training. I just run steady. I cannot even force myself to keep a particular pace. I'm not a very refined athlete. I should try slow running in order not to exceed a particular heart rate.

I know there is a negative-sounding verb for selling a family or country's jewels/assets at a cheap price.
Unfortunately I can't remember it. Do you know what this verb is?

> The Putin Doll Case is nearing its end. The state Prosecutor just now asked for a 3-year, 2-year, and 1.5-year term for the young guys who made a Putin doll in 2018 in the city of Perm and put it in the street with a sign "War Criminal Putin V.V."
> This is insane.
> You can talk to the guys by going to the Lenin district court. Right now there is a small crowd of supporters gathering.
Young guys made a Putin doll with signs "war criminal" and "liar", and may right now get jail terms for it.
Not a single day without innocent people being jailed in Russia.
I've also read a new story about a Jehova's witness who was tortured so hard by the police that his ribs were broken.
Not a single day without this.
Here are the guys who can get prison terms. They were against Putin's war of occupation in Ukraine. By the way, the city of Perm is quite close to Yekaterinburg, just 300 km to the west and a little to the north

@CowperKettle why shouldn't you "exceed a particular heart rate" during exercise? I mean sure, if you're going at an anaerobic pace for 30 minutes . . . But no one can do that
 
7:22 AM
@M.A.R. I noticed that fellow runners sometimes write that "this time, I was running to keep my heart rate at no more than 150" or something.
And sometimes they keep they pace artificially low, at about 6 min per km.
I havent mastered this technique.
 
@CowperKettle well that rate is crazy high
 
@M.A.R. High? My rate goes up to 170 each time I run, but briefly.
 
Briefly ain't important, for HIIT pros it goes that high at least three or four times during the height of their intensity
Do you not warm up any before running?
Or does this happen in the middle when you decide to run faster for a bit?
 
This is from the yesterday's run
 
I have all the solutions but none of the action
 
7:26 AM
No, I don't warm up. I'm very un-technical.
 
There's, AFAIK, this belief that a smaller load on the heart and the muscles skews the carbohydrate fat ratios in metabolism in favor of fat
Hell, walking at 30 minutes a kilometer skews it much further
But this ignores the fact that you're burning many more Calories with every kmph of speed
If your heart rate is like that everyday, it shouldn't be much of a problem, but I'm not a licensed doctor of course
AFAIK cardiac problems happen to people who do a crazy amount of HIIT, steady cardio and resistance training etc. very competitively, like in European soccer leagues.
 
I should upload these graphs somewhere on a run related forum and ask if they are good, or maybe I really should run at a slower pace.
 
@CowperKettle How many graphs like that do you have? And how accurate is the device you're using to measure heart rate?
 
@M.A.R. I've been using this breast band from AliExpress for more than a year, each time.
It must be accurate, because it's not a wrist band but a breast band.
Although it's cheap of course.
So there must be a hundred records on Strava and Endomondo
 
@CowperKettle Yeah that was what I was thinking
@CowperKettle I honestly think you should show them to a medical doctor or a nutritionist or at least one professional trainer, as opposed to posting it on fora
Whenever "am I doing well" or "is this dangerous" things come up in sports, with a few exceptions in some martial arts, people irrationally subconsciously get on the defensive, as if their methods are being questioned.
And no one is doing the same technique exactly alike, but many assume what they're doing must be the right or scientific way
 
7:38 AM
nods
 
Assuming your forum post gets enough activity, which is ideal for fora, you'd get both "nothing wrong with that, I occasionally get to 180 and look at me, I'm happy" and "OMG how u alive". No consequences behind a screen for them but the same can't be said about you
As is true for most posts in Fitness.SE AFAICT, except the newb's that are just asking 'the basics'.
 
Oh, there is a fitness SE!
I'm even registered there.

Q: Redline heart rate running

Graham DonoghueJust started to use HRT monitor on runtastic. My max heart rate I think should be 179. I am 41 and my resting HR is 45. Just ran 15k this morning and according to the data I was in redline (defined as 90-100% of maximum heart rate) for 54% of my run and 29% in anaerobic. I was not running too fas...

 
@CowperKettle precisely. If you can get yourself to do the exercise tomorrow and the day after, most probably you were far from pushing yourself or your heart too hard. The exception is only when people delude themselves too much with "no pain, no gain"

Hi folks, please consider the following sentence quoted from the internet:

> The live sample below contains items that have been given a width, the total width of the items being too wide for the flex container.
What is the function of "the total width of the items being too wide for the flex container" in the sentence? And why is there no "are" in it? I am expecting it to be "the total width of the items are being too wide for the flex container".
Please teach me, thank you. If you answer it, please ping me.

Vagina, a village in Tuymen Oblast of Russia. Population: 183 persons.
I wonder how it has gotten through the years without being renamed

Number of people apprehended by the police in Russia for single-person picketing, June and July 2020 (Moscow: deep red, St. Pete - light red, other cities: gray) Solitary picketing in Russia requires no prior registration or notification, so all apprehensions are made under trumped-up pretexts
 
12:20 PM
I'm always unsure whether to use the with police
 
How do you read well on phone?
 
@M.A.R. There is a "theoretical maximum" for heart rate, usually estimated at 220 bpm minus your age. Over that your body is going anaerobic, incurring "oxygen debt." Some of that is inevitable, but until your heart is properly conditioned it can cause problems, especially if there are underlying conditions. In other words, you can have a heart attack if you do it too much.
How do you tell if your heart is conditioned? If you are working near your theoretical maximum, your heart rate should fall to under 100 bpm fairly quickly when you cease the activity, say ten minutes or so.
The better conditioned you are, the quicker it falls.
Your body will tell you when you're going anaerobic. You start gasping for air. If you're not used to exercise, that's the point when you should slow your pace to where you can comfortably continue. If you're really not used to it, you will have to stop for a period of time.
I always use a heart-rate monitor when I ride, though I didn't when I used to run or play basketball. Climbing hills I often am up to 10% above my theoretical maximum for longish periods of time. My cardio-pulmonary system is good enough that I can tolerate that, but that comes from years of conditioning.
 
1:11 PM
Also, and this is important: if ever you are exercising and you start getting heart palpitations—fluttering, missing beats and the like—slow down or stop. And get checked out by a doctor before you begin any exercise regimen.

@ArtificialStupidity Some folks in this chat might be two centuries old but I'm not
 
2:46 PM
@Robusto I agree with everything you say, and I also think that if someone has been exercising more or less the same way for years and they suddenly wonder whether their heart rate during the exercise is in any way harmful for cardiovascular health or similar, most probably nothing is wrong if they don't notice any of that fluttering during the exercise, and if this evaluation misses some fine details, a licensed medical doctor is the person to tell them

The Law of Spikelets or Law of Three Spikelets (Russian: Закон о трёх колосках, Закон о пяти колосках, Закон семь-восемь) was a decree in the Soviet Union to protect state property of kolkhozes (Soviet collective farms)—especially the grain they produced—from theft to stop mass destruction of foodstuff during the Soviet famine of 1932–33. The decree was also known as the "Seven Eighths Law" (Закон 'семь восьмых', Zakon "sem' vos'mykh""), because the date in Russian is filled into forms as 7/8/1932.Although the formal name of the law was longer, the common names Law of Spikelets or Law of Three...
On this day in history: Law of Three Spikelets passed. Several thousand farmers shot, over 100 thousand sent to concentration camps. The man-made famine in 1932-33 killed from 2 to 7 million farmers.
If the upper estimate is assumed, the Ukraine took half of it, about 3.5 million deaths. People were coming to cities and towns and died there on the streets, hoping to beg for some food
The Holodomor (Ukrainian: Голодомо́р; derived from морити голодом, moryty holodom, 'to kill by starvation') was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine from 1932 to 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. It is also known as the Terror-Famine and Famine-Genocide in Ukraine, and sometimes referred to as the Great Famine or the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932–33. It was part of the wider Soviet famine of 1932–33, which affected the major grain-producing areas of the country. During the Holodomor, millions of inhabitants of Ukraine, the majority of whom were ethnic Ukrainians, died of starvation in a peacetime...

This is one reason why becoming truly fluent in a language is so devilishly hard. What you really have to do is get fluent in a culture.

@Xanne Ah! Thank you!
> We were so poor growing up we had to share our thoughts
 
@CowperKettle The funniest version of that was "we were so poor we owed money to the charity"
Of course, that was before they overdid it so eh, YMMV
 
@M.A.R. If you don't get off my lawn, I'll stir -you- up.
 
@Mitch Now now, we don't want you injuring your back and going to the hospital, so the house would end up eating people and WHAT A WEIRD movie that was
 
@M.A.R. Wait...I'm outta breath with all this ranting...gotta sit down.
farts
Stupid dog.
 
Awkward smile of acknowledgement
Did you just nod off?
 
9:34 PM
@M.A.R. Mitch didn't nod off. He just went to find a porkchop.
See, the dog won't play with him ordinarily, it just sits around and farts, so Mitch ties a porkchop around his own neck and then the dog and he go at it.
Sorry, I stole a Rodney Dangerfield joke for that.
