Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”
Wow. I didn’t know Dave Chappelle was Muslim 😃
He was preaaachhhhinnnnn. Katt look like he been thru hell and back and don’t got nun to lie about
Hydrating for short runs and interval runs:
- Running specific water bottles: Holding a water bottle can be annoying as hell when it’s slipping out of your hand because it’s sweating more than you are, so you essentially spend your run playing some sick version of hot potato with your bottle instead of having a good run. But water bottles like these and these are made specifically for runs and they keep the water cold and the bottle doesn’t sweat, which is perfect for shorter runs.
- Fuel belts: If you don’t like holding anything while you run, you can get fuel belts, which have mini bottles attached on them. I personally don’t like these because I feel like they are restrictive on my waist, but to each her own, some girls are dtf (down to fuelbelt).
- Track workouts: If you don’t like holding anything but still feel like you need hydration on an interval workout, do the interval workout on a track. You can keep the water on the side and get drinks when you need, but you don’t have to worry about holding it. Wow what a world we live in! What a time to be alive!
Hydrating for long distance runs:
- Wanna be really edgy and unpredictable. Shock your friends and stay cool with these alternatives. Running long distance and getting dehydrated is way to easy, so having access to water especially in the summer is super important. Doing all this as well as staying hydrated when you aren’t running is necessary.
- If you start getting dizzy while you are midway through your run. Don’t be a dumbass. STOP. You will pass out and you will go to the hospital and like I get that you want to have a good workout but you also shouldn’t have to pay ridiculous medical bills from the ER.
Hydrating throughout the week:
- Always have a water bottle with you so it becomes routine for you to constantly be drinking water.
- If you don’t like the taste of water, you’re wrong. But also, put fruit in it, it will help mask the taste.
- Have green tea with your breakfast. Metabolism booster AND water? I don’t even care if you don’t think it tastes good. You’re wrong and you should drink it.
- Have coconut water and other natural electrolyte drinks throughout the day.
- Have lots of fruit. All the best fruits are in season in the summer and coincidentally also contain a ton of water! Pee on, my friends.
Point of this is, don’t be one of those people that gets dehydrated and passes out while running this summer. Don’t kill that runner vibe. Drink on.
10 Yoga Poses that will Compliment any Runner
If you run, you MUST compliment your running with stretching before and after so your muscles don’t tighten up.
Here, I’ve put together some easy poses anyone can do after a run. Do them in order after your run. Go at your own pace, be kind to yourself and do what feels good. Don’t get discouraged if you’re not as flexible as you wish…you’ll get more flexible if you keep going.
You’ll see progress quick if you stick to it. I promise!
1. Downward facing dog-
Stretches basically everything. Hips, hamstrings, shoulders, back, achilles, calves, etc. Also, it can be very cooling after running and a good moment to just relax and slow down.
2. Lizard Lunge-
A great opening in the hips and hamstrings which I always find needed after running. You can even take the hand closest to the instep of the foot and place it on your knee to gently push the knee out to the side. Do on both legs, naturally.
3. Horse Squat-
A good twist and hip opening. The help of gravity makes this stretch extra yummy! Push your knees apart with your hands and let it feel good!
4. Malasana Squat-
After horse squat, take your hips down towards the ground. This is AMAZING on the low back which can sometimes feel jarred after running. Plus another great opening in the hips.
5. Wide Legged Forward Fold-
I love this pose to stretch everything and to improve my posture by opening in the heart space. Make sure you lift at your inner arches here slightly to avoid dumping in your feet and hurting your knees.
6. Tip Toe Pose-
I encourage all of my students and friends and family and anyone to do this. If you have never done this, it may feel pretty intense at first and you may not be able to sit in it for long. But do it everyday. Trust me, you will thank your healthy feet. Especially after having your feetsies in shoes all day, this is a must.
7. Top of the Foot Stretch-
To counter the last stretch, this one feels great and is crucial for balancing out your feet. It feels so good from the top of the shin down. Again, if you never stretch your feet, you may notice your arches are pretty tight. Either way, do it everyday.
8. Bhekasana/Frog Pose-
After working your quads on that run, this is the best thing you could do for them. It stretches the entire thigh. Don’t leave this one out. It’s way too good.
9. Pyramid Pose with elevated toes-
You could use the street curb for this one. Crazy good hamstring and achilles stretch. This wall was convenient for me to rest my forehead on.
10. IT Band Stretch-
Right after pyramid pose, take this twisty position to stretch out the IT band. You won’t regret it.
Do these stretches after runs and get back to me on how you feel in a few weeks. I can assure you it will improve your running, flexibility and power. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
