Fish oil and Posterous

Staying in bed, so boring la (src: morphogenetically).

False advertising
I started getting sick yesterday, and had to skip Salomon Trail Tour. Today I have to cancel Rett Til Værs and tomorrow I doubt that I can join Sogsvann Rundt Medsols. There is never a good time for being sick, but losing three races in a row sux. Darn! Last time I was sick was back in December, in Singapore on my way to Japan.

What doesn't make sense this time around is getting sick despite of drinking fish oil every morning. I started doing that in February. My dad, aka. the famous (or infamous?) Gribben, promised me that I would never get sick as long as I drank "Tran". I called him today, majorly frustrated, complaining about his false advertisement of the so called "magical drink", made from fish. He had no good excuse at all. Double darn! Now, whom can I trust?

Not being able to run might be very good for my leg though, as it is bloody hard not running too much as I have no idea of what too much is. If I had not gotten sick it would have been five days in a row, which might very well have been to exagerate.

Posterous archive
Restless as I am I haven't managed to keep the bed much today though. I really tried, but after half an hour or so I just gave up. I started working, with work stuff. But my head started aching and I switched over to a personal project instead; I've made available my old Posterous blogs.

Posterous Spaces is no longer available.

If you have read any of my older posts on this blog, you might have discovered links to a site called Posterous Spaces, or posterous.com (example: "http://klevstul.posterous.com/hytteplanmila-2011"). If you follow these links you end up at a page reading "Posterous Spaces is no longer available". This is because Posterous, my previous blogging platform, was acquired by Twitter and shut down. Tripple darn!

What I've done today is making my old blogs from Posterous available on my own server. You can find them all going to my site posterous.klevstul.com. My main blog, preceding chronicles.no, can be located at posterous.klevstul.com/klevstul. There you will find my archived post about Hytteplanmila 2011, and much more.

As I discover old and dead links to posterous.com, I will update them. However, as there are quite a few, I guess there will always be some links taking users to a dead end at posterous.com. At least now you know where to find the post, if there is something that you really want to read.

I've also got copies of my old Posterous blogs running at wordpress.com (for example at posterousklevstul.wordpress.com). However there were some problems during the import that messed up some of the images. As well the images are still refering to / being hosted at Posterous' Amazon S3 account. I guess it's only a matter of time before that account is deleted.

What else?
I failed BADLY at my May challenge. Mainly due to development of runners.no version 2.0. I guess I will have to try doing that again later. Manjana, manjana...

I've read another interesting beetroot article (thanks to Mr RG for the link), with the summary:
So where does this leave us? A little more cautious about the benefits of beet juice, perhaps. The good news is that, if the authors of the most recent study are right, beets work for everyone except truly elite athletes -- sucks to be them! Beyond that, while we're waiting for further studies, I guess I'd err on the side of (a) using real beet juice instead of supplements, and (b) loading up starting a few days before competition, rather than just a few hours before.

And now I seriously need to lay down for another half an hour or so, my head hurts once again... #sick #sux

  1. Jmf. det lidende uttrykket på bildet - får håpe du er på vei inn i andre verset snart!...

    En av mine store favoritter fra barndommen, enjoy!
    "Det verste med å våkne opp det er når jeg er syk.
    Magen min er fæl og dum og skallen min er myk.
    Og røde hunder, meslinger og alt som ille er - mhm.
    Det herjer rundt i kroppen min som råtne tyttebær - mhm.

    Så kjedelig å ligge her og ikke være frisk.
    Ikke er det godt med mat og slettes ikke fisk.
    Ikke kan jeg lese, for det har jeg ikke lært - mhm.
    Og hvis jeg nå vil synge blir det bare tull og fælt - mhm.

    Da må jeg
    holde sengen hele dagen.
    Får bare
    havresuppe ned i magen.
    Den er sleip og glatt,
    men det er for at
    da blir jeg mye raskere frisk igjen.
    Sier Ludvigsen.

    Det verste er når jeg blir frisk for da må jeg stå opp.
    Når endelig det begynner å bli artig er det stopp.
    Har du prøvd å snyte nesen mens du synger ompa - hm?
    Har du prøvd å plukke dyna opp fra gulvet med rompa - hm?

    Nei, jeg vil
    holde sengen hele dagen.
    Få bare
    havresuppe ned i magen.
    Den er sleip og glatt,
    men det er for at
    da blir jeg mye raskere frisk igjen.
    Sier Ludvigsen."

    Om det er noen trøst så må nok denne kolspasienten gi opp "perse på 1-rundern"-prosjektet sitt i morgen hun også. Men en rolig tur tåler jeg nok. Fortsatt god bedring! :-)

    1. Haha. Fantastisk sang, Adelheid. Ikke hørt den. Takker og bukker! Jeg tror jeg er på vers fire. Må jo bare forsøke å plukke opp dyna med rompa ((: Fant sangen på Spotify også: http://open.spotify.com/track/1VFDTIUBt2XHFWiTfn7TKh

      Persing kan vi gjøre siden. Viktig å lytte til kroppen, selv om det ikke er lett...

      Sees kanskje i morgen, men forhåpentligvis ganske sikkert på lørdag.

    2. Knutsen & Ludvigsen har en sang for enhver anledning.

      Menyløpet er på søndag... God tid til å nyte havresuppa og bli frisk. :-)

      Tipper de sårene du fikk på hendene var det som fikk glasset til å renne over for immunforsvaret ditt. Man kan jo ikke tåle alt heller (selv om man har en tendens til å tro det).

    3. Søndag. Enda bedre!

      Sårene jeg fikk er en plausibel forklaring på hvorfor Tranen ikke fungerte som den skulle ja. Immunforsvaret fikk nok kjørt seg litt ekstra da. Det er vanskelig å forstå at man ikke tåler alt.

      Blir ikke SRM på meg i dag. Fortsatt ikke i slag. Lykke til. Vi sees søndag, på det o' store Menyløpet!
