So I'm going to Japan. 11 hour flight. Ugh. 10-hour working day that starts 2 hours after I land. Ugh again. 2 12-hour working days after that, and then another 11 hour flight back. Oh, and plus the connecting flights Stockholm-Amsterdam. So a total of 36 hours travel and 34 hours working in 5 days....

I just don't see how anyone can stand long steady state cardio. It's so BORING. I have to incorporate some sort of intervals when I go running, either it's straight HIIT or some variant of that. I'd go crazy otherwise. Or more likely, I'd go home and skip the workout :green:

We saw "The expendables" yesterday. Satisfactory amount of butt kicking and explosions per minute. If you like action movies and don't mind Dolph Lundgren's CRAPPY acting, it's worth seeing :)

They generally don't publish joke-articles in that journal unfortunately.

I really don't know what to say.

I've found that gargling saltwater numbs my throat more then anything. I'm not sure about the germ killing power of it but I do know it works for relief. Well salt disturbs the bacterias' adhesive abilities or something, so if it's a bacterial infection you have the saltwater should at least rinse ...

Well if placebos work, then a broccoli/ice smoothie is guaranteed to solve a sore throat immediately. Of course, even if the placebo affect fails, you just got a massive amount of quality nutrition. *gag* I think I'll stick to the milkshake if it's all the same to you :green: I had lots of veggies ...

I doubt that a topical application of anything can kill enough viruses in the tissues of your throat to actually help. I'm betting that it just makes you feel like you're doing something while you're waiting for your sore throat to go away. Whatever reason is fine with me as long as it helps :green...

Helena--gargle iodine? Is this some form of Swedish folk medicine? That sounds awful. Does it do any good? No, I believe iodine is commonly used to kill germs... this is some solution with iodine and alcohol that you buy at the pharmacy. It really helps when you have a sore throat. Tastes like crap...

I'm sick! This sucks. I feel like crap. :evil: Were you looking at Doc's pictures? Actually, didn't you just get back from vacation? Maybe you need another one to recover from that one. :lol: now that's just mean! Yeah, I did just come back from vacation. And I do have another loooong one coming up...
