Race Report: Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga | Fit and Feminist

This was definitely a tough race, and while I would have liked to have gone into it with better training, I still can’t complain about it too much.  I mean, for one, I PRed.  It would be completely obnoxious for me to be upset about that. I also managed to finally have an OK run during a half-ironman. I think that’s because I finally have a bit of experience at this distance to draw on, so I knew when to pull back and when to push and how to manage my nutrition. That said, I still have a LOT to learn.  Which is great!  It makes for a fun adventure. And then of course there’s the fitness side of things.  I’ve noticed over the years that my level of base fitness has gradually increased to the point where races I used to have to train my ass off for – like, say, half-marathons or Olympic distance triathlons – are now things where I can go out and race pretty hard without a ton of preparation, and I’m apparently starting to reach that level with even longer events. I have to say I’m pretty pleased by this.  I enjoy feeling strong and fit and healthy. I like being capable of doing hard physical shit. I particularly like seeing how my body and my mind continue to develop into a person who would have been unrecognizable to previous versions of myself.

WHO: Angola yellow fever deaths cross 300 | News | DW.COM | 27.05.2016

Yellow fever is a viral hemorrhagic disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes. Symptoms include a mild infection with fever, back pain and fatigue. But in 15 percent of cases, a second, toxic phase is experienced. This can lead to bleeding in the mouth, eyes and gastrointestinal tract. Around 20 percent of those who experience the toxic phase die. Although there is no specific treatment for yellow fever infection, vaccinations are recommended for travelers to tropical regions of Africa and Latin America’s Amazon region. Aid groups say poor health facilities and vaccine shortages are limiting Angola’s ability to cope with the outbreak. The WHO said 2.4 million doses of the yellow fever vaccine have been received and a further 2.6 million people will be receiving a jab in the next few weeks.

Putin signs economic deals with Greece | News | DW.COM | 27.05.2016

Moscow also seems to be interested in investing money in a number of privatization deals in Greece, such as the port of Thessaloniki. Greece has repeatedly turned to Russia in the past to ask for funds, as the economic crisis in the country deepened. In addition to its debt problems, Greece also now has to deal with being on the frontline of the biggest mass migration in Europe since the end of World War II. Sanctions in the way of stability Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras criticized what he branded a vicious circle of sanctions imposed on Russia, while stressing that Greece belonged to the EU “and respects absolutely its commitments to the international organizations to which it belongs.”
