2018 Annual 10th Class Results are out

And so are the relatives.

Moth cham diwaan maas hasa pass hasa hey.
Mouji be chusay matric pass hasa hey.

Passing the 10th class is a very important milestone in a Kashmiri persons life. Many many years ago, this 'achievement' belonged to a few, many of who ended up in government jobs and spoiling the whole economy of the state.

They were the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the diamonds of the crown, the tigers of the jungle.

Welcome to life, our new matric pass tigers.

The problem with treadmills are that they are boring machines. 

Fitness is not meant to be boring.

Being fit is meant to the be opposite of being lazy, and I see treadmills are the lazy persons tool of choice when it comes to walking and running.

There are endless areas to explore in whatever village, town or city you live in. Go take a walk, or run around silly.

Muscle ache diary

Dear online diary,

1. My current workout plan is killing me. I don't get enough sleep which means there is no time to recover.
2. I am increasing in strength but looks like I have hit a plateau since I cant recover fast enough to see progression. Basically I am a loser, a thin loser.
3. I am going to gym 5 times a week. First two days, I put in all my effort. Remaining 3 days, I am sore and tired, and not really putting in 200% in the workouts.
4. I end up irritated since I don't have much energy to devote to my family chores which still need to be done anyway after 10.00pm.

Yesterday, I met a fitness trainer who explained to me about the difference between two muscle categories, one for strength and one for hypertrophy. He also advised to start BCAAs and see whether that helps with the recovery part.

Note to self: Keep reading about hypertrophy.

Cryptocurruncies have caused ransomware crime.

Let's face it. Illegal transactions in the dark web, and ransomware have been made possible by crypt-currency.

Do bring more benefit than harm?
