2021.10.19 17:48 PatheticRedditAlt Report - Columbus Half Marathon - My First! - And what a baking show taught me about running races!
### Race information

| C | Feel and look strong at the finish line | *Yes* |
| D | Hit my goal finish time (mostly because it was a nice round number) | *No* |
*note* split times are absent because I didn't have my Strava on (on purpose) and there were only mats two mats along the course apart from start/finish
I've been running since fall 2019, but only in an organized/smart way since spring 2020. I originally targeted the Cap City Half Marathon's original rescheduled date in Fall 2020, but it was canceled, and I didn't want to run something virtual for my first.
Training was 5 miles easy T, W, Th, F, off Saturday, long run Sunday (baseline of 8 miles before ramp-up), with full-body weights on Monday. One of those mid-week runs was substituted out for a bike day (see below).
My running was almost entirely easy miles. I've been at 25-30MPW for more than a year, and just started inching up my long run milage to hit a peak of 12 the Sunday before the race. I tried to integrate a bit of speedwork about 8 weeks prior to the race, but between that and a new make/model of shoes, I developed a bit of plantar fasciitis in my right foot that, while manageable with the right care, forced me to cancel speedwork and sub out one running day for a stationary bike day. Weighing 235 lbs doesn't help my feet either, but that's a whole other kettle of fish that is frankly very simple to improve (I used to weigh 100 lbs more!). After my 12-miler the Sunday before the race, I took it easy the week before. My normal weekday runs are 5 miles, and i cut it down to 2 3 milers, and took the week off from weights. I felt great at the end of the week and definitely think my taper was neither too long nor too short!
Waking up at 4am sucked, but that is what it is. Took 3 immodium immediately. Chugged half a gallon of water to get the poo train to leave the station. Skipped my morning coffee - figured my heart rate and significant nerves didn't need the help. My spouse drove us, we parked in a garage, and made our way over to the VIP (I hit a fundraising goal for the children's hospital, which allowed us a special area pre- and post-race for gear check, and they had coffee and food). Drank some more water, swallowed probably a total of half a teaspoon of Lite Salt over the course of about 45 minutes. Spouse left to find a place to watch the start from at about 7a, so I was on my own, and feeling very nervous (for no good reason). I felt the urge, and then checked off another first from my list - pooping in a marathon porta potty. After using the facilities, I finished another water bottle, and headed over to the corrals. I put on my massively oversized sweatshirt like a poncho and restlessly wandered around the back of Corral C (more on that below) until I realized I had to pee yet again. Fortunately this was so close to the start that the lines were short, and people were literally running to the lines, and sprinting out of the porta potty doors. Thunderstruck was already playing by the time I exited the porta potty.
I resumed my place in Corral C, albeit much closer to the front this time (since that was closer to where the porta potties were). As is typical at Columbus, the song "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC plays before the gun, and right when the gun goes off, so do a ton of fireworks. Also, at the gun, the song switches from Thunderstruck to "Born To Run" by Bruce Springsteen. I was absolutely not expecting to hear that song, and I will fully admit that I got a bit misty-eyed (as did several people around me). Not for the first time, I thought to myself, "Jesus Christ, am I actually doing this?". I used to be morbidly obese and now I'm going to run 13.1 miles in full view of thousands of people!
After The Boss, they played Jump Around (House of Pain) for my wave. Since it was playing as we were walking toward the start line, I was more bunny hopping than the classic Camp Randall Stadium bounce (where the University of Wisconsin plays football), but I did! It was a great music selection and it was a great time, and incredibly memorable.
I crossed the start line, put my music on my headphones, and started my watch.
After about a half mile, I took my hat off and stuffed it in my pocket. I had a chemical hand warmer that I tossed into a garbage can after two miles.
For some reason my bib was for C, which was not right - I belonged in D. I was passed by a lot of people in the first miles, which kind of made me feel like a jerk (even as a total newbie I know that you really shouldn't be in a corral that doesn't correspond with your expected finish time). I don't know if hitting the fundraising goal for the hospital got me a C start, or if I put in the wrong time when I signed up for the race - it was so long ago I don't remember). My apologies to the oodles of much faster people who passed me.
Honestly, the course itself was fine. There were some moderate uphills, but those were accounted for by my pace band's timings, and also by my own recognition of the elevation gain, and slowing to keep a consistent effort. I took 2 gatorade endurance cups at every water stop starting at mile 3, and, while a weird texture, they tasted pretty good and i tihnk helped me nail my splits and not positive split the race. I didn't take water at all during training long runs, which i negative-split I high fived 9 of the 12 Patient Champions on the route - I couldn't see the first one because I was surrounded by tall people, and a couple times I found myself on the wrong side of the course when they were coming up and I didn't want to cut off a bunch of people.
I had to snot-rocket a few times, but I always ran about 20 feet off the course and did it on grass. I passed hundreds of loogies on the ground though. Covid notwithstanding, that's pretty disrespectful, IMO. I doubt it's much of a risk of someone getting germs from them, but I'd rather not run with someone's phlegm on my shoe, personally.
I made a mental error at Miles 8 and 9. I misremembered what mile I was on, and thought I had passed Mile 9 already, when Mile 9 itself came up. That was my first moment of having to embrace the suck, and I felt kind of poorly for a bit I mentally flogged myself, making myself the target of two really mean guys in my mind:
"You're a washout, Private PatheticRedditAlt! You should pack up that bib and go home. You do not DESERVE to get your medal!" "PatheticRedditAlt, you look tired. There's an ambulance waiting for you at the bottom of this mountain. It can all be over, right now. No more pain, no more Currahee, no more Captain Sobel!" (Band of Brothers)
"Oh, that's right, Private PatheticRedditAlt! Don't make any firking effort to get to the across the firking finish line! If God wanted you across the finish, he would have miracled your ass up there by now, wouldn't he!" (Full Metal Jacket)
That got me through it and back into the groove.
The crowd was great, and so were their signs. A few that stood out were "WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO REACH YOU ABOUT YOUR EXTENDED WARRANTY" and "I DO MY OWN RESEARCH, AND YOU'RE ALMOST AT THE FINISH' (at like mile 4, lol). At roughly Mile 10 or 11, I saw a lady holding a sign saying "I really like your STAMINA, call me!"
The final few miles were on one of the main streets of the city. I felt great, my foot discomfort had calmed down a bit, and I was starting to pass people. I was over-concerned for my fellow runners at this point (every race report I read on Chicago made its final miles seem like the infamous Highway of Death in the Gulf War), but the weather for us was great, and I did not see a single casualty. At Mile 12, I started a bit of a kick, which I maintained through the finish.
Speaking of music, I should note that about 90 seconds after I passed Mile 12, "Running on Empty" by Jackson Browne came on my playlist (it was on shuffle). That was so serendipitous I actually started laughing hysterically, which earned me some funny looks. The perfect song, lol.
I crossed the finish line uneventfully!
I put my hands on top of my head and walked slowly through the immediate post-finish area. I was not expected the dozens of medical staff with wheelchairs - at first I was concerned that I was displaying some kind of distress, but I think they were just looking for people who were about to collapse. I didn't! I got my medal (first!) my space blanket (first!), and a bagel. Met up with my spouse, had two coffees, had a couple drinks downtown, and then went home and took a shower. Then went out for more beer and a huge amount of pizza.
### what's next?
I executed the race plan I wanted. My race pace was 1 minute faster than my long run pace, but felt the same effort - i think that's because of the taper and it being 20-25 degrees cooler than every run i've had in the last 4 months. I could have finished faster by probably :30sec per mile, but I am glad I didn't - I have a much better idea how i respond to the distance now, and that would have been risky before.
Next race is the capital city half marathon. Between now and then I'd like to get about 10 lbs off and fully rehab my foot to where I can integrate some speed work. I had great success with half mile repeats at mile pace last year training for a 5k time trial (and my easy paces were faster then too). I think between all those things, I can improve by 1min/mile between now and april, easily, if not more.
Lastly, the thing in the post title about baking - I watch the Great British Baking Show. You can always tell from the first episodes who realistically has a chance at winning, and who doesn't. I understand much better now the people who do not have a chance to win, but are just there for the fun of the activity itself, the people/community, and just to challenge themselves personally. Running for me is like that. I'll never win a race, never get even close, but I really like it, and will continue to get better at it. You don't need to "win" to make something worthwhile, or even be particularly good at it by objective standards. Though I do want to get bettefaster, as Hemingway once wrote, "there is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your former self."

2021.10.19 17:48 KredPandak Modified Work & VET
I’m curious if anyone else has experienced the situation I’m currently in and any results you may have had. I’m not allowed to accept VeT due to accommodations???
So, about 2 months ago I had mentioned to my manager that I was sore (I have a 5+ year old injury that acts up sometimes) and I asked that my next task after lunch was changed. I was sent home and told that I couldn’t return to work until I brought medical documentation so they could put me on modified duties.
It took 2 week for them to process this which hurt (my income) but in the end I’m on modified duties and don’t have to worry about putting more stress on my injury(good news!).
The problem I’m having is that over the past month I’ve been accepting VET and today I learned that I’m not supposed to be eligible for VET. The reasoning, as explained by my manager & HR is so I don’t injure myself further.
With their reasoning I’m also concerned that they could reduce my hours and say the same thing, “we did this to not exasperate your injury”.
… I want to be able to accept the extra time (because I need money lol) when I feel I can physically manage it and I would never come to work if I couldn’t successfully complete my duties.
Has anyone else gone through this and if so we’re you able to accept VET?
I’m going to try to speak with my case manager about this as I would like the option for VET but wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this.

2021.10.19 17:48 Lunai5444 Which language is lip synced ? Can you set voices as LATAM if it's intended to be this way and get english menues ?
I've only watched the first cinematic / intro and already i'm disappointed, the lip sync is completely off, theres no big delay or anything it's just off, the lips don't match the actual words.
Maybe I had unrealistic expectations but fuck it's kinda ugly and out of sync am I crazy ?
My settings are all on high and my computer can run it, my drivers are freshly updated, 75 fps, decent monitor.
So i'm wondering if English is just not the original language and the game is intended to be played in LATAM but since the menu aren't independent I guess not, any clear cut on this ?

2021.10.19 17:48 georgejw22 Ubuntu on laptop with dual external monitors
So I recently purchased a 2013 Hp Envy 17 m7-j120dx just to install Linux and play around with it. I installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I have a dual monitor setup for my windows laptop that runs off a j5create adapter via USB. Works well in windows, but as you would image it does not on Linux. The HP Linux I have has one HDMI, several USB 3.0, and a rJ45 Ethernet. I'm able to effectively use the HDMI connection on my laptop to extend to one of my monitors, but I'm having trouble finding a solution to hook up my other monitor. I see this is an issue for a lot of others as well. I see that Displaylink is the way to go, possibly Startech. My monitors are not able to daisy chain. I've read many a post about how this works, but then someone else saying it doesn't, or it stopped working on a kernel update.
Can someone please give me a concrete connection to effectively use my second external monitor. I've even seen posts about running from my Ethernet to server to HDMI, unsure how that'll work, if it'll work at all. Please just some advice on an adapter for USB 3.0 or rj45 that will allow me to extend, not mirror, my display along with my current HDMI connection. Thank you....
