    When I filled out my application there was a question about “expected salary” I put what I was making at my last job but rounded up. During my initial phone interview with the recruiter she went over it and said that shouldn’t be a problem and it was exactly the offer they made. Left me wondering if I could’ve/should’ve put more But I’m not complaining. It’s pretty generous for the amount of “work” I actually do :rofl:

    thanks bro! I’m excited, nervous, and all the other adjectives in between

    I tried shooting high. I also knew I was a little underpaid. I ended up 13k more base salary. 6% 401k from 3% as well. Benefits are near comparable - might be paying $500 extra a year. Lots of small incentives I get too, not really worth naming. If I do get my Tesla 3 long range too, I will be fucking ecstatic. Imagine never having to stop at a gas station (Tesla installs a charger at my work place).

    I’m a long distance runner so I like to prioritize fat adaption techniques for some runs by doing most of my aerobic runs fasted.
    My speed work is done non fasted.

    Goals: Run as long or as far as it takes to suppress the urge to kill people. :)

    Seriously: road marathon this year with 2021 being entirely dedicated to ultras.

    So not for calorie burn or cardiovascular health. Just pure enjoyment mixed in with a little pain and suffering... because I genuinely enjoy that.

    Great answer!! Haha to not kill people! Yeah I've been doing sprints for cardiovascular, fasted resistance training for fat burn and heavy bag work for mental health, so I don't kill people lol

    I have a lot of respect for you long distance runners, it's grueling!! I follow David Goggins, that guy is an animal!!

    Both, but mostly so I’m not out of breath tying my shoes.

    Right!? Fitness for daily life!! I encourage people to try sprints, it's the best of both worlds! 30sec on, 30 sec off, 10 sets. Plus not as damaging to joints as long distance running

    Neither, but cardiovascular health is a definite benefit. For programming purposes, basically the bigger the base the higher the peak and if I’m breathing heavily after some high volume sets then I won’t be recovering as quick as I could be. Also if I do just a little more conditioning than my competition, it’ll be a sweet edge.
