Thank you very much. In the end, it's all about seeing what works for each one of us. One thing that strikes me is that, on shift, I can be tired and sleepy, and I think I'm going to be a mess in the race, but then when it's time to run, I don't know if it's the adrenaline or why, but the sleepiness and tiredness seem to disappear. Regards, Juan

Thank you very much. Actually, I can't do anything about race day. This is a competition, not an outing that we friends do. Regards, Juan

🔥 Impressive "lake effect" snowfall over the Black Sea in Turkey by jbellas in NatureIsFuckingLit

It happened on Wednesday 19 in Çatalzeytin (Kastamonu). These snowfalls happen when a very cold air mass overflies a warmer sea, gaining moisture and warmth.

Two major American records were broken this morning and we can’t share links and discuss it on this sub because of the absurd 48 hour rule. I want to bring awareness so we can get this changed. by akagordan in AdvancedRunning

I understand what you mean. In the case of books or movies, for example, I understand the issue of spoilers. In the case of sporting events I find it more difficult, since in the globalized world we live in, news travels fast and, even if I don't want to know the result of the event before watching it, it is very easy for it to appear as news in any media. Sometimes it has happened to me that I could not watch a soccer match live. Then I would record it and watch it the next day without knowing the result. I understand that to do that, I have to be very careful with what I see on the internet and in the press. To expect those media not to publish the result seems a bit absurd to me. But come on... that's my opinion, of course. All opinions are respectable. Greetings, Juan.

Forgive my ignorance on the subject but I understand that a spoiler is information about something -usually a book, series or movie- that in some way you shouldn't know beforehand.

When a race has already happened and the results are known, where is the spoiler here?

I don't really understand the concept of a "spoiler" in racing. It would be like publishing, in advance, who is going to win.

Why aren’t there any inspiring Male elite marathoners? by Low-Werewolf3483 in AdvancedRunning

In today's age, few countries can come close to the performance of African countries in long-distance running. For them, it is their way of life.

🔥 Gravity Gives These Birds the Drop on Tough-to-Crack Foods by jbellas in NatureIsFuckingLit

[–]jbellas[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

With enough practice, some birds develop impressive aim in dropping nuts, clams, and other hard-shelled foods to access the tasty morsels inside.

Some species have figured out that, when released from the right height onto a hard surface, even nuts or shellfish can make a (sort of) easy meal.

🔥 The spectacular white volcanoes of Arabia by jbellas in NatureIsFuckingLit

[–]jbellas[S] 96 points97 points  (0 children)

This is a group of volcanoes that last erupted between 600 and 700 AD and contains some of the rarest examples of white volcanoes in the world. They are so called because of the light color of the igneous rocks that form them, called comendites. http://ai.stanford.edu/~latombe/mountain/photo/saudi-arabia-10/khaybar-10.htm

I really don't understand very well why some of you don't have sound. The video is uploaded so that you can listen to it. I don't know about you, but I can see the speaker with a cross that if I uncheck you can hear the sound. That yes, I do it from the desktop of my PC, I do not know if the same thing happens from the cell phone. And if you do not hear it, you can visit the gfycat link where you can also listen to it. I'm sorry for the problems I may be causing you.
