    I know it sounds like a cat poster [Manarelle]

    молодец так держать... I'm currently up to 20 verbs (out of about 500 apparently) and starting to get my head around the different cases.... It's getting tricky now

    Re: weekend... see the next few updates... there was some extraordinary medieval-ness... Re: wargames... I have a large cupboard (that Mrs Blocky hates) filled with bits and bobs. And in an effort to multi task, I have a some artificial grass in the home gym that I can use to: A - play mini-golf and B - sit down and play nerd games.
  8. It's safe to say that a lot of us did the same thing...

    Wed - 12 Jul Fitness Things: Bench day. I upped my 1RM for a 1s paused bench to 117.5 (5kg over my last meet). Yay. Did all my other stuff and upped most of my assistance work a little bit. Steps: 15,557. Hooray. Looks like I'm heading for an easy weekend. Non-Fitness Things: Russian - Yes. More progress. NF forum stuff - a small amount. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ SCORECARD Lift all the weights: 17/42 2 x PR, 1 rep PR Do all the steps: 2/6 Current average 16,490 Fix all the things: 1/2 - I'm checking the box on the adductors now just have to work on the low back.

    Blocky continues to grind.... or Blocky finishes his training block.... Last challenge went relatively well, not brilliant but still made some incremental progress. Fitness Things Follow the Program: The program is working... slowly... I just need to stay focused and not get distracted... Oh look a squirrel... I'll score this by the day - 42 days +1 STR for 42/42, +1 STR for any PR's or rep PR's Count the stupid steps: This is an easy way for me to monitor my activity. I'm aiming for 13,000 [up 1000 from last challenge] steps daily but averaged over each week, which should make it less of a pain in the ass. I'll score this by the week - 6 weeks +1 CON for 6/6 Find a way to fix some flexibilty/mobility issues: I have 2 issues that need some attention: 1st - my adductors are STILL being annoying little fuckers... I haven't hurt them again BUT they are still super tight and annoying. 2nd - my QLs are super tight and rigid (like it literally feels like a sheet of bone connecting my pelvis to my ribcage...and I'm pretty sure that's not right) which is giving me some back pain and stiffness. I haven't found a way of effectively stretching/mobilising either of these things (not through lack of trying)... I'll score this by making SOME improvement in each area. +1 DEX for each. Non-Fitness Things Be more Russian-y: Work a little harder at my Russian learning. I'm still doing my lessons with a tutor... BUT I'm often unprepared and haven't done much in the way of homework orrevision. I usually rely on the "read it 30 mins before the lessons and hope it sticks long enough to not make a dick of myself strategy" (which I have relied upon for most of my life). I'll score this by the week, aiming for 5 out of 6 weeks. +1 INT for 5/6weeks Be more involved in NF community: I've pretty much checked out over the last few challenges, I've been updating my own challenge but not really participating in any one elses. I will be annoying YOU in your challenge. I'll score this by the week - aiming to make 2 decent contributions to other Nerds' challenges per week and aiming for 5 out of 6 weeks. +1 CHA for 5/6 weeks Bonus CHA goal - go do the drunk thing with some old friends: This should be an easy one... .it's basically get drunk and win points... but my brain is already looking for excuses for not leaving the house. +1 CHA for doing the thing
