  1. Hey, sorry I haven't posted a lot to all your challenges guys, life can be a little crazy. Anyhow, I'll post more tonight, for now, Reyna, PippinPDX, doctor_ice, welcome aboard the team. As far as rules go for the group it kinda depends, the challenges usually have limits to group size and what not but at the end of the day the biggest point of all this is to support anyone on their fitness goals and building those habits. If you're new and have any specific questions about the 6wk challengs, be sure to check out the main posts in the community section and corresponding class boards.
  2. Date: Jan 13th Focus: Run Duration: 20 minutes Sunday all I did was run about 20 minutes on the treadmill, averaged speed of 6mph with 4.0 incline not including a 5 minute cool down. Today I haven't done anything, I've been cramming for my Cloud+ cert tomorrow before work. Don't have a lot of time to post further details. I'll run tomorrow and do my weight training after meditation. Expect next post on Wednesday.
  3. Date: Jan 12th Focus: Bodyweight training without gym Duration: 30 minutes Set 1 4 underhand pull-ups 12 push-ups 10 sit-ups 20 leg raises 24 lunges (12 per leg) 20 prisoner squats Set 2 1 underhand and 3 overhand pull-ups 12 push-ups 20 leg raises 24 lunges (12 per leg) 20 prisoner squats Set 3 4 underhand pull-ups 12 push-ups 20 leg raises 24 lunges (12 per leg) 20 prisoner squats I tried to get my running in at the gym today but I just got a new membership there and they close at 8:45pm and I can sometimes be sporadic about what time I show up on the weekend, got there at 8:30pm, lo
  4. Don't worry about the people working out in the weight room. I'm this skinny, scrawny little Irish guy and although at first when I started going to my gym it seemed very intimidating, as Ok mentions, you realize that really nobody cares, they usually just show up, do their routines and head out. You will benefit so much from doing the free weight training work after a while you'll feel like a pro and people will be looking at you for direction, lol.
  5. Jarrod - The fact that you learned some Quenya.....instantly gains you 5000 nerd points. Congratulations. Lol. DirtyLittleSecrets -- Welcome, let any of us know if you want to learn a bunch of random Tolkien lore or have questions. Good luck on your new adventure!
  6. I have to agree with OK on this, Wow. I started my fitness journey last Jan by training for my first 5K. I have the same 5K coming up again in March and eventually I'd like to get to the 10Mile run and maybe a half marathon but I don't think I'd go much further beyond that, I enjoy running but I'm not in love with it. Your goals are very well defined. Good luck on your goals and keep up the good work sir!!
  7. Date: Jan 9th Focus: Bodyweight training without gym Duration: 20 minutes Set 1 4 underhand pull-ups 10 push-ups 20 sit-ups 20 lunges (10 per leg) 20 prisoner squats Set 2 2 underhand and 2 overhand pull-ups 12 push-ups 20 sit-ups 20 lunges (10 per leg) 20 prisoner squats This doesn't include my 5 minute warm up and cool down exercises. I did not do any running or meditating today. I should have drank more water, WAY too much coffee in the morning so I could survive my training. Note: It is crazy how important momentum is, earlier last year from Jan-July my workout routine was flawle
  8. Too much content for my brain. Can't fit it all.

  9. Yo OK... Keep it up! Let me know if you have any questions about Zazen practice, part of the reason I joined a Sangha was because I wanted to have a community that was physically close to collaborate with whenever I was frustrated or lacking inspiration. If you can't get to the gym in a day you can at least keep your momentum via some home body weight exercises. :-P
  10. The Dúnedain are a race of men/women descended from the Númenóreans. Closest allies of the Elves and Valar, the island of Númenór was considered the greatest realm of man and as a gift to the rangers of the north many of them (Aragorn included) were gifted with exceptionally long life! *Nevermind that whole fall of Númenór concept where they stopped serving Eru Illuvator and then the island sank into the sea. :-P Elves, rangers, men, women, hobbits and all NF rebels are welcome to join! Hopefully you join because you love Tolkien as well! I'm not sure if there is anything further
  11. Yes! The zen meditating ranger group grows!! Meditating at home works just fine assuming you have the space and quiet for it. I find with my living situation this is difficult, since my Zen center is only 10 minutes away, getting there and back again isn't a problem. *See what I did there?!? hahahaha Now I just need to create my signature to be as cool as yours.
  12. I didn't put any stats or attribute stuff this time. I don't think this is required, or maybe it is for grading and reward purposes, but I've got my own reward system in place if I succeed. The simpler the better IMHO.
  13. Hello random internet community. This will be my 2nd 6-week challenge and hopefully one I succeed at this time ;-) Race: Dúnedain Class: Ranger goals ===== fitness/diet 1. bench press 3x150lb 2. run 5k 3. 3x10 underhand pull-ups 4. meditate more than once a week plan ====== 1. weight train at least 3 days a week, getting enough sleep and nutrients to maintain the weight 2. begin with interval training, increase the duration slowly (note: since my goal is not to go hard 6 days a week I'll probably have days where I do some weight training and interval cardio at beginning of workout, s
  14. I did 5 reps of 115lbs for my squats toward my goal of 170-180 by end of the challenge. I did some sprint training on Wednesday with explosive (plyometric) exercises. Challenge Completed. ;-)
