  1. I am always amazed by people who can effortlessly do splits. I am!
  2. That's really great advice, I was a bit worried it was going to be complicated and about heart rates. Thank you for the help!
  3. Nearly at the end of the challenge carrotkid. How have things been?
  4. Congratulations to all the most wanted assassins. Amazing achievements!
  5. Thanks Harika, that's a great tip. I will have a look out. I am in the UK and it does not to be much of a 'thing' here. Not sure if it is in other countries? But I will definitely have a look out once I find out where everything is here
  6. I admire your dedication! What sort of interval training have you been doing? I have been trying the sprint one, but am really finding it difficult to get the pacing right and always seem to be too fast/slow at different times. How are you getting on with it?
  7. Ah I see, I am slightly less concerned for your food deprivation . Food is amazing. Mexicans my favourite. Hmmm food. Excuse me while I go find . . . something totally unrelated and not at all to do with food ....
  8. I was wondering if anyone here had done the flash workout? I am interested in trying it alongside the beginners bodyweight workout to increase cardio fitness/burn fat. http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2012/04/27/superhumanspeed/ My question is how do you know what percentage of effort you are putting in? In the past I have tried running longer distances, but start too fast and have to stop. I think I am worried that I will not push myself enough or push myself too much, making the workout less effective or flying off the treadmill in the gym. I know it sounds like I am over thinking things, but I have zero intuition with this and would appreciate any tips from those of you with more experience in this.
  9. Wow, you're progression is amazing! I am going to have to check in on your thread more often when I need motivation to do the bodyweight workout instead of sit on the sofa. Congratulations on the belt notch! Kormas are amazing. Can't believe you've never had one before. I hope you manage to find a good recipe to make it from scratch.
  10. That's an amazing progression! Congrats on staying with the paleo as well! It sounds like you have some epic will power. Are you running this challenge into next month, or picking new goals on the 16th?
  11. Thanks Inspired Fool! It seems such a small thing, but it helps with tracking goals . Hm, interesting question, Nuala. I think that I want to be one of these: Corgi cats are amazing. The two things I really want to do are parkour and silks. I have joined a parkour group in my new city, and start next week. I can't afford silks, but want to build the skills for silks, so agility, strength and fear of not being upside-down. What is your achieve your split quest?
  12. These interviews are brilliant! I would love to learn silks but unfortunately don't have the money so it is useful to know what sort of things can be done to increase the skills needed until then. I am totally in awe of anyone who can do these (or any!) kind of skills and it is really inspiring to see and read about.
  13. Hey, Sorry for not checking in the last few weeks. Luckily it is because I have been busy! I have just moved house, have got an A so far for my life goal and vitamin taking and am nearly ready to launch my business! I have got a 'B' for the body fitness workout, which is not great, but I have managed to do my first ever push up. I have not done very well on the handstand challenge, so am going to continue that into the next challenge. For my next lot of goals I want to build on my fitness by continuing the body strength, but adding sprinting (you can't be an assassin on strength alone, right?) 2-3 times a week. I also want to start yoga or something similar, as I can feel myself getting less flexible, which sucks. I haven't thought too much about about it though, and would appreciate any advice you have based on your experience. Thank you for checking in and keeping me accountable!
  14. I'm a little late feeding back on this. I have spent the week away from the computer and sewing costumes instead. Thanks for all the encouragement. It helps to feel accountable to people . The second week went ok. Two completed beginner's bodyweight sessions, so a b. Hoping to complete 3 this week. Got an a for vitamin taking and I have got the outlines of three workshops done, sewn viking costumes and started market research for the business. I am failing handstands. I have zero arm strength (my husband is highly amused by my inability to do simple push ups) and need to work on it way more this week.
  15. I am so glad you're feeling better about things! I hope things have managed to improve slightly over the last few days. I am setting up an education business, bringing Iron Age artefacts into schools and teaching skills and stories. Until recently I worked in museum education, so it's not too different from that. Just a lot of work to build everything from scratch and find clients. Keep up with the good work!
