  1. Apparently not much happens on this thread. Anyway, an update. The first two weeks of December were 77 and 80 miles, long runs of 20 and 22. The third week was a planned step-back week, ran 40, but was fatigued the whole time. The fatigue ran into the last week, so instead of pushing and running the risk of injury, etc., I ran by feel, totaled just 37. Took several days off, got back out on the roads yesterday, ran a surprisingly easy 12 at a decent clip. Feel great today, so hopefully I'm over whatever it was that was causing the problems. Four and a half weeks out from the race, going to finish this week with probably 60, then a hard week next week and a gradual stepdown to race day.

    Happy 2019 to everyone. Keep moving. It's good for the body and great for the mind as well.

    It does happen just not as much as before.

    An update on how to lose diabetes in 10 dates ... I was diagnosed with Type 2 on June 26, 2017, weighed 305 pounds, and the A1C was 6.4. Less than a year later the A1C dropped to 5.2 and I no longer had Type 2 diabetes. As of today I weigh 245 (it goes up or down a pound or two depending on the day) and the A1c is 5.0. I did all of this without medication even though the doc wanted to put me on Metformin upon diagnosis. I told him that I ate and slogged my way to Type 2 and that I can eat and exercise my way back to health. In a recent email he said I'm the "poster child here for getting into good control by exercise and diet" ... and so it can be done but it's super fucking hard and you have to be super fucking militant to make it happen. I overhauled my eating habits and I went to the gym 259 days in 2018 (and spent most of June and July doing 8 miles in laps every morning at the local high school track). It's a simple recipe that you adhere to or you don't. Now, I'd like to weigh between 230-235 but won't stress too much if I don't get there. Physically, I feel pretty good.

    And, CBD full spectrum hemp oil is a godsend in terms of workout recovery and overall sense of feeling chill -- but without being high.

    CBD sounds like something NFL athletes should be able to use. I've heard nothing but good things from friends who have used it.

    CBD is so fantastic, man. I do cardio pretty hard several days a week. Afterward I take tincture drops and my knees and ankles and feet and toes (one of them becoming arthritic) feel great. The only downside is that it's fucking expensive.

    How often do you use it, and many drops per day? And so how long does a bottle last?

    I'd like to try it, but it does seem expensive.

    CBDistillery's 2500 mg is ... AWESOME lol.

    But a bottle costs $129 or so (at least where I buy it).

    The higher the mg the higher the price.

    A bottle of 1000 mg costs 60-something and that strength could suffice.

    To answer @Slacker's question, I use it throughout the day. After the gym. A few hours later. Few hours after that. Then after dinner.

    Here's how much goes into the tincture thing. I usually do 2 of those at at time sublingually (under the tongue).

    There is NO reason NFL players shouldn't be allowed to use it. It's just hemp.

    So eight of those squirts a day means a bottle lasts you about a week? That adds up pretty fast.

    It does add up. So, I can either get lower mg bottles or not take as much high mg drops a day.

    The 2500/1000 difference is kind of like the difference between first class/coach because once you've flown first class ...

    And, sometimes I only do 1 squirt during the middle hours of the day into night.

    Still learning the most effective dosing schedule.
