Hi, I'm sayre. This is my 3rd challenge, and the first time I'm picking a druid (fun fact: my first character in WoW was a druid). Previously, I was an assassin and a warrior, but my favorite kinds of exercise are bodyweight training and rockclimbing. I'm trying to do some challenge ideas I've had before but seemed a little too far out of my range of experience. Challenges! 1. Practice Yoga 3 days a week. I'm taking a yoga class at school, but I haven't practiced all summer, so for the next 2 weeks I want to do some yoga to get back in the practice. Also, the class at school is only 2 days a week, so I'll have to do an extra practice per week after school starts. A: perfect; B: miss only 1 practice; C: miss only 2 practices; D: miss only 3 practices; F: miss 4 or more practices 2. Add 30 lbs to my bench press and overhead press combined. My current bench press plus shoulder press maxes are 165 lb + 115 lb = 280 lb. So I want to get them to 310 lb. Simple, non? A: 30+ lbs; B: 25+ lbs; C: 20+ lbs; D: 10+ lbs; F: <10 lbs 3. Run (or bike) for your life! There's a Couch to 5k program at my school, and I'm going to do that. But before school starts, I'll try and ride my bike for time a few times a week. 4. Write some stuff. I used to love to write, and every once in a while I get back into it for a short spurt but give up quickly. So, I think I'll challenge myself to write 2000 words a week. 2000 words of anything: diary, fiction, opinion, just anything that I don't have to do for some other reason. There is no ultimate goal for this challenge, just the fact that I will have written 12000 words. A: 12000+ words; B: 11000+ words; C: 10000+ words; D: 9000+ words; F: <9000 words Side Quests! Here's some other challenges I thought about doing, but didn't make the cut. Perform a 1-arm flexed arm hang. Perform an advanced tuck planche, advanced tuck front lever, and advanced tuck back lever for 10 seconds. Read lots of articles on this site: http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Sequences. (I totally suggest other people start reading this too, it's interesting reading.) Finally upgrade my 2 computers to the latest version of Ubuntu. Work on handstands Perform a perfect 1-arm pushup. I think I'll just keep tabs on these goals, and see if any of them get accomplished by accident. Let the games begin!
