How to Run 10 Miles

In the current Zeitgeist of fat apologism, the world’s collective waistline increases constantly at an alarming rate. Corporate interests, feminists, and fat-asses have cooperated, conspired, and colluded to change the public perception of attractiveness and establish that obesity is a medical condition and not a crime against vitality itself.

It’s in times like these that the men and women of today, more than ever, need to know how to trim the inches from their waist.

I advocate running. If you run 10 miles a week, you will never be overweight.

I used to run 10 miles twice a week in high school. My running schedule allowed me to eat whatever the hell I wanted and increased my recovery by several orders of magnitude. That is to say, my recovery from workouts, injuries, and all night benders was faster. To this day, I actually wake up earlier and easier when I have gotten a good night’s drunken rest (the no hangover part is probably a function of my youth). When it comes to stripping body fat – running had the most noticeable effect of anything in my earlier days.

The way I did it was simple. I ran a circular path in my high-school past a tennis court, through a golf course, through a parking lot, down a school driving, onto the side-walk that passed my dorm and past the tennis court again. The distance was such that one lap was roughly one mile, if not a little more. One day I ran one lap. Two days later I ran three laps. I continued like this on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Three laps became five laps. Five laps became seven laps. Seven laps became nine laps, and nine laps became ten. I always ran with music and got started right away so my mind didn’t have time to convince me not to run. I ran in the snow. I ran in the fog. I ran in the dark. Little stopped me from running.

By adding on a little bit extra to my run each time, I was able to go from running one mile to ten in three weeks. Learning from that, I often take large tasks and break them up into more manageable chunks. I also got a confidence from being able to run ten miles. I felt like most people I knew could walk ten miles, let alone run them. This new found confidence in myself, reinforced by the remarks of people who watched me run formed part of the foundation of the start of my journey into the game.



I just watched a video by Jack Lalanne on this thread.

I’ve often heard about how sugar affects your body but I’ve never done anything to see for myself. Therefore, for the next 5 days, I will eat as little sugar as possible. That is to say, I will not eat as follows:

  1. White Sugar
  2. Candy
  3. Cake
  4. Ice Cream
  5. Jams
  6. Jellies
  7. Cookies
  8. Pies
  9. Pastries
  10. Canned Fruits
  11. Soda Pop (Most Carbonated Beverages)

When ever I feel a hunger spike, I will eat a fruit, say an apple or banana.

Here’s the video:

I’ll report back in a week.


Shots, Shots, Shots

I don’t remember very much when I was younger, but I do remember getting shots. I hated getting shots. Every now and then I would get dragged to the doctor to get shots. My sister too. She was plied with pet goldfish and I was plied with ice cream. It still didn’t change the fact that getting shots sucked.

Nowadays, I still hate shots. I don’t hate them because they hurt, I hate them because they don’t help and some cases cause harm. The worse kind of shots are vaccines, because while the doctors claim these shots will heal you (if you have a disease) or prevent you from getting infected, these shots actually hurt you worse than the diseases you are trying to prevent yourself from getting!

I have taken shots for specific diseases for travel. When I went to Africa, my family and I all got shots for Malaria and another disease (my memory is hazy on this one). I took shots in high school for the flu and I remember girls getting offered HPV shots.

At the time I didn’t know about the truth about vaccines. Now I do. I refuse to take any shot that is a vaccine or some other drug that I do not know about (morphine might be okay). When my university offered flu vaccine shots, I refused to take one. I had to read some bullshit information about the dangers of not getting the vaccine and I had to sign off (that I did not receive the vaccine) before I was allowed to leave.

A brief history for context. I was born 3 months pre-mature and bear a scar across my stomach that constantly reminds me. For a long time when I was young I got sick often, I got constipated, I took a lot of allergy medication. When I moved to France for six years, I got a stomach virus and was sick for a whole month in the first year. I had three asthma attacks stretched over three years. When I went to military school, things changed. I got more active; I was required to play a sport. I was in the country with fresh air and the barracks was quiet at night (as opposed to the city) so I got better sleep there than I did at home. The food wasn’t the best (it seemed as if everyone in the corps got diarrhea one month!) but it was varied and I could make my own sandwiches at the salad bar (which was excellent!). I made peanut butter and honey sandwiches all the time. Fast forward to high school. I get hay fever every year and I get the cold in January. What’s the common denominator? I almost never get sick. Never. It’s the same with my dad. He never gets sick. When he goes to the hospital for any check ups, all the doctors tell him that his organ make him look like he is in his forties (he is in his sixties).

When I truly got sick once in eleventh grade, I had a cold and it lasted for 1 day. One day! I’ve talked to a friend at my university who talked about how he would take a week (or longer!) to get over the common cold. I could not hide my disbelief.

I commented on Bill’s post:

I believe the best medicine is good sleep, good food, and exposure to sunlight.

Interesting how hospitals give you crap food and keep you out of the sun (they try with the beds, though). Plus, cooping sick people up with sick people (giving birth in a hospital?!) is not a good idea in my book. The reason why so many people get sick in cities (history class) and in barracks and dorms (personal experience) is because of the proximity of everybody to everybody and their sicknesses.

My family has a saying, “If you want to live to 100, pick your parents and stay out of the hospital.”


Post Script: I also subscribe to the belief, “As you think, you shall become”, in that I refuse to get sick. Whenever I am sick, I do not distress the pain. I get angry that my body has gotten weak, that I have to take time off from doing things I want or need to do.

Fish Oil



I just ordered Fish Oil off of Amazon on Danger & Play’s advice, however, he didn’t elaborate on how much fish oil I should take per day.

I did some very basic research online and got no clear answers that I liked.

An excerpt from the Energy First:

There is no FDA recommended dosage for fish oil but the FDA does say that the average healthy person (age 5+) should not take a fish oil dosage of more than 3000 mg per day.

So what dosage of fish oil should you take? 450-500 mg per day of combined EPA/DHA is a good place to start. The World Health Organization and other governmental health agencies recommend 300-500 mg per day, and most research studies touting the health benefits of omega 3s are done using fish oil doses of 1000 mg and up. It’s recommended that you start slow when you take fish oilto see what your body feels comfortable with and to make sure you don’t have any fish oil side effects (link to Artcile 3), like allergies.

Some people claim that taking higher dosages of fish oil can be helpful with various health issues. For example, The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends a fish oil supplement daily dosage of 2000 – 4000 mg for high triglycerides, while for coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as diagnosed coronary heart disease (CHD), the AHA recommends a daily dosage of 1000 mg of EPA and DHA omega 3s. Some claim that taking extremely high doses of fish oil omega 3s can benefit major issues like depression (10,000 mg), Chron’s disease (4000 mg), and lupus and rheumatoid arthritis (6000 mg).

When to take fish oil for individual ailments or diseases can be discussed with your doctor and dosages should always be under his or her supervision.

Energy First was not very clear, as I could not tell how many capsules per day I should take. I checked another website.

An excerpt from eMedTV:

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that people who have high triglycerides take a fish oil supplement with 2 to 4 grams (2000 to 4000 mg) of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. There is no need to take all of this fish oil all at once; you may find that splitting it up into two daily doses decreases some of the bothersome side effects. The AHA recommends that you take fish oil for this use only under the supervision of your healthcare provider.

I could not see anything other than advice for maintaining a healthy heart or fixing an ailing one, so I checked a third website.

An excerpt from Healthy Omega 3:

Around 500 mg (1/2 gram) minimum of EPA and DHA a day for healthy people, and around 1000 mg (1 gram) a day for known heart disease patients, perhaps double for lowering triglycerides.

The best fish oil supplements contain 280 mg of DHA and 120 mg of EPA per capsule.  (That’s more than double the normal amount of DHA in most “average” capsules). A total of 400mg of DHA and EPA.

So 2 capsules a day will give you 800 mg in total, around the level proposed by the AHA. And the recommended dosage, (taken from the label), for adults is 2 capsules a day.

The conclusion therefore is that if you use the best fish oil supplements and have no known preexisting heart problems, just follow the recommended dosages listed on the label. Other fish oil supplements may require you to take 4 or 5 or more capsules, depending on the quantity of Omega 3 fats in the capsules.

Healthy Omega gives the most clear recommendation so far, so I will start with their guide line and modify my dosage as I see fit. I will take two-three capsules per day depending on how much of each supplement each capsule contains. I will report on any changes I notice  a week from the day I first receive my fish oil and take my daily dosage.

On that note, I welcome advice from anyone from the manosphere who has prior experience taking fish oil supplements, especially Danger & Play himself.
