  1. Hey Scouts! I am back after a very long break. I just finished reading Steve Kamb's book and have completely changed my perspective on life. If you haven't read it yet, I would highly suggest it. Anyways, I am excited to be back and am working on my challenge.
  2. I haven't done anything since Saturday. I'm feeling pretty lazy. I did reward myself with a new wetsuit after the last challenge.
  3. Well, Here I am back for my 3rd challenge. After successfully completing my Triathlon on 7/25. I am looking for the next challenge. I have already decided I am back in for the Spudman Tri next year. I would also like to do a Spartan Race or Tough Mudder next year. But that is all 2016. There are 2 or 3 5k races that I want to do before the end of the year. For my next couple of challenges, I want to focus on improving my running pace and doing some body weight workouts. Quest 1: Improve my Running Pace A - 5+ Workout days each week (3x Pace Improve, 2x Recovery) (30+ workouts) (+2 DEX, +2 STA ) B - 4 Workout days each week (2x Pace Improve, 2x Recovery) (24+ workouts) (+1 DEX, +1 STA ) F - 3 days or below Quest 2: Body Weight A - Complete 2 30-Day Challenges (+2 STR, +2 CON) B - Complete 1 30-Day Challenges (+1 STR, +1 CON) F - 3 days or below Quest 3: Post Updates for Accountability I am going stop by every couple of days and post updates. I hope this helps me stay accountable. A - 15 + updates (+1 WIS, +1 STA) F - Below 15 I am going to try and track everything in HabitRPG.
  4. I thought I would share my success Triathlon from last weekend. Felt great to finish!
  5. Well I'm back from vacation and entering race week. I finished up Friday and Today with PRs on my 10k run and 40k bike. It feels good going into my TRI Saturday. Tomorrow is my off day and then I start tapering down to Saturday. How has everyone handled taper weeks before? I am wondering if I should train normal Monday and Tuesday then start tapering Wednesday or start tapering Monday. I am looking for suggestions.
  6. Ugh. I'm back for an update. It has been a tough week at work. Too much going on and I go home exhausted at night. Work has really impacted my workouts in the last week. Sleep has been more important than exercise. Maybe I need that right now and I'm not going to get discouraged. Next week will be better. Water is still going well. I keep trucking along. I will be offline on vacation for a week. Hiking, walking and having fun! Have a good week everyone!
  7. I'm back checking in again. Last week was great I got 6 workouts in. 20.5 miles of running. My goal is only 15 miles.22 miles of biking. My goal is 20 miles.1 hour of swim (1500 M)My average step count per day last week was over 10000 steps.Water was good. I got my water goal in each day. I have been over 100oz of water per day for several weeks now. I am starting to feel when I am dehydrated. It helps me get my water in better knowing when I am starting to feel dehydrated. I need to do better on my check-ins. My days get really busy. I would like to come and update everyone and be accountable, but I am finding this to be a struggle. This week I am going to take Saturday as a free day. Even though it is a free day, I am still getting in a 20 mile mountain bike ride in Saturday AM. It is one of my favorite trails so I am pretty excited.
  8. It has been a week since my last post. Last week was really busy but I need to do better on being accountable by posting updates. My workout goals have been doing well. I got in a run 4 times last week, 2 swims and 1 bike ride. The bike ride was nice, it was a cool Saturday morning and the hill climb got my HR up. I hope to do it again this weekend. I have been doing pretty well with my water goals. Unless I do something stupid, I get my 3 water bottles in easily right now. I hope to keep that up. I have been enjoying HabitRPG. It is less of a commitment than MyFitnessPal but I enjoy the leveling up part. I should make it to level 3 today. I need to add more goals and dailies to HabitRPG if I want to level up faster. I hope to talk to you all later this week. Thanks for helping me stay committed!
  9. Just sub'd. I love your enthusiasm! Question.. What is the definition of your Yearly Bug Count that is in your signature?
  10. Is it just me or is this challenge flying by? We are already into week 2! This week has been a struggle from the exercise prospective. My body feel tired and it makes it hard to want to get out and do stuff... I am hitting the pool tonight and need to go run tomorrow morning. I am only 5 weeks until my Tri and a tired body is not what I need right now. Just need to keep pushing through this wall I have hit and I will feel better on the other side? Anyone have any ideas for pushing through a plateau or wall? On the water side, I am doing really well. I feel like it is becoming a habit to keep my water bottle full at my desk. I can get through 3 bottles without much effort. This is a big win for me. I really thought it would be more difficult to get in 100oz of water. Now I just need a bigger bladder!! I have been using HabitRPG but my progress is slow. I dont have enough habits and dailies in so I rank up slowly. I like the ideas of the app but need to enter more stuff so I can build my rank more. Anyone else using HabitRPG?
  11. Well we have made it to day 4. Woke up with a 4 mile run but kept my HR in the 140s instead of the 150s. Was much easier to keep going but my time was slow. I actually enjoyed today's run more than I have other runs. Maybe I need to rethink my strategy. Its not all about the time, its more about the journey!
  12. Well day one in the books! I did really well on the water. I actually got 4 water bottles in by the end of the day. For training I did 2 loops around a little lake that is close to home. Each loop is a 5k. First loop went great but the last loop was a struggle. I made it though and that is what counts!
  13. I think I have my challenge ready to go. Monday is around the corner!
  14. I hadnt heard of HabitRPG or Mixxer before. I am giving HabitRPG a go this time around. I am also learning ASL and wonder if Mixxer has any ASL people on it.
