  1. I'll be sure to let you know when that happens. I may even do a dance for joy on each of them and post a video. Okay, it is doubtful I'll do that, I'm the proverbial white man when it comes to dancing. But maybe a picture with a heroic pose looking over my surroundings. The training my buddy is doing with me involves speedwork intervals, timed intervals but still intervals nonetheless. I'll probably occasionally go to the track now that I found one that's open to the public and do the 200/400/800 work to change things up a little. The test will be on a track, rain or shine. They have 6
  2. Thanks all, I would have replied sooner, but I was without power for a couple days. I don't have a forerunner, but I do have an app on my phone that will tell me every minute what my pace is and I can adjust from there. Not as sophisticated, but it will do since I very much prefer outside running. I talked with a friend yesterday and found out that he cut his mile time down considerably through fartleks/HIIT and he said that he would run with me whenever I wanted to. So I'm going to run with him 2 days a week and on a third day I'm going to do Dawsy's hill sprints. I've got 3 really nice h
  3. I am looking into Ohio police academy and one of the final PT requirements is a 1.5 mile run. For my age group, I need to complete it in 11:58. Yesterday, while I was waiting on film to get developed, I decided to test my time. I did just under 1 mile (due to severe miscalculation) in 14:50. I know I could have done better, but not more than a max of a minute. A little over a year ago I was able to do a ~12 minute mile on my first time that I ran a mile without stopping, but after that I quit running except for a little here and there and never more than a slow quarter or half mile as a warm
  4. 2/27: I had to do a handstand day, so I decided to incorporate yoga afterwards. I did about a minute of wall handstand and tried to do a handstand pushup afterwards, but mostly failed. Then I did a 15 second L-stand. After that, people started coming into the room for a spinning class, so I had to leave. I had nowhere else to do my yoga workout, so I decided I'd do it when I got home. Once I got home, I ate dinner and fell asleep on the couch. So today (the 28th), I am doing a lifting workout, followed by my planned yoga. No added distance for the day. Life goal: Diet is going good. Ma
  5. 2/26: Rolled a 6, rerolled and got a 6, really didn't want a rest day so I rolled again and got a 2. Random WOD it was again. Today's workout was: Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes following the rep scheme below:-Dumbbell thrusters, 15# per arm, 3 reps-3 Inverted pullups-Dumbbell thrusters, 15# per arm, 6 reps-6 Inverted pullups-Dumbbell thrusters, 15# per arm, 9 reps-9 Inverted pullups-Dumbbell thrusters, 15# per arm, 12 reps-12 Inverted pullups-Dumbbell thrusters, 15# per arm, 15 reps-15 Inverted pullupsetc. I only made it that far, plus 3 thrusters Warmup/cooldown was 2.25k
  6. Hiya Rangers, I'm back. After failing a couple challenges, missing one, starting over in the RP and going back to Adventurers; I'm here! Just commenting to sub to the thread. Link to my challenge is in sig (when I get it updated).
  7. 2/25: Rolled a 2, which meant random WOD. My friend joined me today and suggested a WOD he did 2 weeks ago. It was 5 rounds of: 250m row 15 DB snatch at 25lb, one arm 200 meter run 15 DB snatch at 25lb, other arm I did this and felt like I was dead. Also, warmup of 1 mile and cooldown of 1/4 mile. So a total travel distance of 4.25 km for the week.
  8. Last Chapter: WoodWoes At the end of the last chapter, the Elder gave me a scroll with the instructions to not open it for 2 weeks. But I am severely impatient and want to continue my training. I break the seal and start unrolling it... .----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------. / .-.

  9. Congratulations bro! You killed those imps! Can't wait to see who your fight the next challenge.
  10. In non-RP talk, my goals and results were: 1. Stronglifts 3 days a week. I did this except for 1 week where I was without a car and had no way to get to the gym. 75% complete, +2 STR +1 CON 2. 15 second handstand. I have the shoulder and core strength to do it, but not the balance. I can hold a wall assisted handstand for 45 seconds, but as soon as I take my feet from the wall (or bar as I hit my head on the wall too many times) I fall. 50% for the strength increase, +1 DEX +1 STA 3. Whole30 followed by paleo diet, with 1 weekend off for a planned trip. Did this really well, didn't do horrib
  11. Thanks! I didn't have time last night to report there and I got on just for that reason. I'll post it now.
  12. Thanks! I'm so proud of passing my fourth first challenge! Haha I am pretty proud of myself! I feel so much more confident than I have after any other challenge. And I'm not giving up on the handstand that easily.
  13. I don't know about the drawbacks from the machines, but I'm guessing they don't work the stabilizers, which can lead to not being able to real pullup even the machine says you should be able to. As for using the bands correctly, this video is pretty explanatory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93gNrOhy5KU I don't know how much you weigh or what ratings the bands you have at your disposal, but I highly doubt they'll snap and put out an eye if you've been building up your strength pretty well with inverted rows. --Edit-- Well, isn't that odd. If you paste a link to a youtube video, it puts
  14. And now for the conclusion of the intro challenge A.K.A Chapter 1: WoodWoes You have been called into the Elder's personal chambers inside the Great Deku Tree (yes, this one) to have a review of your successes, as well as your failures, in your chosen quests. The Masters and those tasked with following you and reporting on your goals are outlined below: Master Quickbeam has said the following of you: Your diligence in the regimen has been commendable. You have constantly improved your strength and even doubled it in some regards (going from a working weight of 45lbs to over 125 in sq
  15. I have learned that I shouldn't force a consistency challenge with 100% attendance when I have a very faulty car (especially doing 2 consistency challenges), that picking thing up and putting them down is quite fun and hollow bodies will make you want to die (though somehow are still fun). What will I do different? I'm not too sure, I know I won't have challenges that rely on my car working correctly. Besides that, I'm most likely going to completely change things up a good bit with my goals. Probably going to switch over to the Rangers next challenge and have a diverse set of goals. I learn
