z1 Slow Movement
Oligophrens and psychopaths
Hitler was hesitant to order the execution of Ernst Röhm, perhaps because of loyalty or embarrassment about executing his WWI buddy, but he relented1. On June 30, 1934, hundreds of senior Sturmabteilung officers, including Röhm, were shot dead in the purge known as the Night of Long Knives2.
We don’t know yet how the witch hunt in Moscow will unfold or if Viktor Zolotov, the wacko in charge of Putin’s Brownshirts, will be allowed to commit suicide3.
It is impossible to predict the behavior of oligophrens and psychopaths. Tiger Team hasn’t come up with the AI that will be able to alert us to the 21st-century remake of Operation Hummingbird, or tell us with any degree of certainty when Russia will erupt.
Maybe this is why Mark Milley told the Economic Club of New York last week said that it’s a good idea, militarily, to lock in gains after battlefield success. (I couldn’t find a transcript of Mark’s comments or a video recording of the event and don’t know whether he was quoted accurately on this Twitter thread. The video recording of the event is available only to club members one week after the event.)

Which brings me to the unnamed U.S. officials quoted in an article appearing in Politico on November 14, titled U.S. scrambles to reassure Ukraine after Milley comments on negotiations: The top general's remarks about a “window” for talks angered Ukrainian officials, people familiar with the matter said.”
Last time I checked, Ukraine spent eight years talking [about peace talks] before Putin attempted to decapitate Kyiv (again) in February 2022. The anonymous American officials Politico flaks talked with for their story are either morons or work for General Berrier at DIA. Or both.
“The Ukrainian military will not accept any negotiations, agreements or compromise decisions. There is only one condition for negotiations - Russia must leave all captured territories.” Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valeriy Zaluzhny said in a phone call on November 14, 2022 with Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley.
Later, rinse, repeat.
Slow dark blackout days in Kyiv are a great foundation for many things: building a long aerobic base, a huge variety in metabolism daily, since there are three-hour chunks at z1 slow movement, but also some z3 in steep non-technical climbs and even some z4 and z5 in certain zones, if you want to go fast.
Unfortunately, there have been plenty of anerobic enhanced non-divergent stunts engineered by self-aggrandizing doucherockets whose mission in life is to make Z look heroic. The latest is a hairbrained decision to revoke the accreditation of journalists who arrived in liberated Kherson ahead of the leader.
