Really happy with my adulting progress.
I only had one minus point.
Two major fitness goals were completed.
Only 2 out of four bonus themes were completed.
I've been slacking on single leg squat work. Or maybe I'm just scared of hurting my knee again?
Also been slacking on the running.
I didn't even start a book this challenge. No good.
I can adult. Sometimes.
I need to be "in the mood" for running. I get plenty of cardio regardless.
As long as I honour the progressions I won't hurt my knee.
I need to buy more dog toothpaste. Preferably one that isn't so tasty to him.
I think it's time for a challenge break..
Honestly, I think I'm a bit burned out on doing these challenges. The daily(ish) updates feel like a chore and I keep finding by week 3 I've set myself targets that box me in to certain activities. If I don't want to run, but substitute with a stationary bike workout, I lose points. If it's too rainy to set up my rings, I can't hit a certain quota.
After 18 challenges and almost 2 years(!) on these forums, I don't feel that creating a monthly challenge holds all that much value for my fitness journey. Eating healthy and being active are huge elements of my life at this point but somehow my challenges detract, or at least distract, from them.
I'd say it's time to take a break from challenges for a month or two and focus on just doing what I do without stressing over how I can earn points.
I'll still be active on the forums, partaking in the mini and (doing a better job of) cheering everyone on in their own challenges, and I'm sure I'll be back with another (probably AC themed) challenge by the end of summer! But I am looking forward to a break.
See you dudes/dudettes in the next one!
