    Or your pace was conservative and you could have run faster Sorry about your crappy night. I've had many nights like that and I don't wish it on anyone. At least today is Friday.

    JonFirestar: The Return of the Challenge of the Living Dead

    Thanks It's got much more to do with the simple fact that I've been feeling really crappy. I've slid on a lot of things because I just feel bad.

    I'm as fond of excuses for this stuff as you are. The important thing isn't the bad decision but the decision to get back to doing well again.

    Yeah a slip can spiral out of control really quickly.

    JonFirestar: The Return of the Challenge of the Living Dead

    Week 4, Tuesday! I'm doing a little better today. I'm still sick, I'm afraid, but I got some sleep last night so I'm not in quite so much of a bad mood. Work continues to be a little busy and it shows no signs of slowing down. At this point I don't think 'll be catching up with many threads Experimental Weapon! I did go out and run this morning. 6 miles. It was meant to be an easy run but I was feeling really good and ended up running the entire run with negative splits. I never went really fast but every mile was faster than the last. It felt great while I was running. I did have a bit of a coughing fit when I finished. Mobility: done PT Exercises: hmm not been great at this. I made a tiny effort today while warming up. BRAAAAAAINNNSSS!!!! 2355 calories. Food has been pretty bad since before fallout. Today has been good so far. Coffee 4 cups. I've actually stuck with this. Even yesterday where I was incredibly tired.  Sleep Like the Dead Bed on time and actual sleep happened.

    I'm not sure I know what's best but I'm going to start increasing activity. I'll back down if things degrees. Well the things I've set for next year myself are pretty big Success is not assured but I believe that I am able to match them. A goal that cannot be failed isn't a goal either. I'm rather tired of being sick.

    The only real way I can make sleep actually work for me is to keep things as consistent as possible. Daylight savings screws with me every time it happens.

    I was wondering what you meant and then I saw this How heavy do the sandbags go up to? I'm honestly thinking of buying one that'll let me load up to around 75kg+ At least 75kg anyway but I don't really have anywhere to keep it! I'm really going to have to pick up my game to keep ahead of you and @Rhovaniel

    JonFirestar: The Return of the Challenge of the Living Dead

    Week 4, Monday! Well, I'm still sick. A horrible itchy cough that seems persistent and never ending. I cough up multi coloured gunk from my lungs when I first wake up in the morning but only a very tiny amount and once it's shifted it stays away for the day. I honestly don't know what to do right now. I'm torn between just ignoring it's happening or resting some more and hopefully shifting it faster. I got almost no sleep last night just to add to my misery. I can't tell you why. I was just extremely restless. I got to add an extremely busy work day onto that. It's meant to be dry and relatively warm tomorrow. Unless I'm feeling worse I think I'll go for my easy run tomorrow come what may. I really need to do something to shift myself out of my current funk. In other news I've signed up to OCRWC, both the 3k and 15k. I've gone sighed up to the elite wave. I really think I can qualify but just so that you understand how it works I can transfer to a lower wave if I do fail to qualify but it'll mean that I lose money. The news that @Kestrel Grey is going to hop over the pond for the big Ranger meet up has made it even more exciting. Thank's Lizz, but I'm afraid that I'm about ready to refuse to keep resting lol.

    I really think that I can pull it off and I think I can do it pretty well to boot but I'm under no illusions about the scope of the task. It's a scary prospect but if a goal isn't a little bit scary it's not big enough!

    JonFirestar: The Return of the Challenge of the Living Dead

    Week 3, Update: I feel like this challenge has been a bit of a wash. I came in with high intentions but I've been down and out for more than half of the challenge and I'm still sick. It's very low level and lingering at this point but it feels like it just won't shift. It's getting kind of annoying. If I'm honest this week has been pretty bad. I've done very little and I've eaten too much. Yesterday being the worst culprit. It was my birthday and I had given myself free reign but I still feel a little guilt from it. Especially given my inactivity. I really hope that I can get back into real training on Monday. This coming Monday was marked as week 1 of my off season training plan and I really want to get going with it. I've got some quite ambitious goals for next year. Not least of which is an attempt at qualifying as an elite for OCRWC 2019. I am far from 100% sure that I can do it. The important thing is that I think that I can pull it off but I'm going to need to be fitter and better than I am now. To qualify as an elite I need to complete 4 laps of Nuclear Oblivion. It's worth mentioning that if I miss the elite bracket I can still qualify for age group by completing 3 laps. I'd be over the moon with either one but I'm choosing to aim high. I want those 4 laps. Only a handful of people every year achieve them.
