I'm lifting this morning, doing compound barbell movements: chins, bench press, calf raises, supine high pull ups, standing press, and good mornings. I do the upper body movements in 5 sets, legs in 3. The day after my long run of the week, I skipped deadlifts: I know I would not perform well. I'm tired today. Consequently, my reps diminish. I'm never really sure how much is mental and how much is physical. It's the larger movements that suffer the most: pull ups and bench presses. My calves retain their strength. It makes sense that, when tired from the previous day's long run, I am weaker in my strength work out. But I also know that I am not generating my usual intensity while lifting. I know how effective that focused intensity can be when squeezing out hard reps. If it is physical, though, I would like to know what substance, energy source, or transmitter is deficient to cause me to be able to do fewer reps.

What is mind, what is body, and where is the interface? I'm sure the interface moves back and forth in the dialectic.

This morning I am mourning the disappearance of another website to Facebook. A young woman's who's work I admire closed her elegant website and is now posting solely on Facebook. I enjoyed visiting her website, even though I suspect it was based on a WordPress template. It had a blog-like landing page, which usually contained posts of her ultra running exploits, with child pages devoted to her photography, yoga, poetry, and training.  I also admit to taking some inspiration in some of her  theme color details to use them in my own site. In all, it created a multi-dimensional view of her life and thought.

There were a couple of poems I have re-visited several times over the many months that I was aware of her web presence. By shifting to the Facebook paradigm where events and thoughts appear in a never ending, unsearcheable stream, all illusion of persistence in time is lost. Content becomes mean
