The revolution starts here, and our founding principles, comrades, are these: 1 Gun Running Well, just running, actually. Keep up one long run, two short runs per week and at least one exercise of some type every day, and complete the C25K with Flyer by the end of the challenge. She's about half way through now, so this should be doable, but I won't rush her gammy leg. I also need to find a new goal to aim for - another race, in other words, so I have a bit of direction. 2 Arms Dealing Well, just working on arms, really, and my aim will be to raise my capacity in pull-ups from one-on-a-good-day to three-on-a-good-day 3 Deciding who will be first against the wall Well, not against the wall, actually, but freestanding handstand practice where possible, looking to hit 5 seconds' PB in this 6 week period 4 Absorb Propaganda And generally, be a good citizen. There's an election coming up in my country in about 3 months' time, so the main plank of this will be to try and stay in touch more with politics. I already listen to a couple of global news podcasts, and one US politics weekly, but I for the home front (arguably the most important news) I only listen to the Guardian Politics Weekly. I don't read a paper or watch TV news, so I'm not really as informed as I should be as someone due to wield a voting paper, so I will aim to get a good, solid chunk of news content into my eyes or ears daily, and not all from one source or one political perspective - so The Guardian, the Daily Fail, the FT, the BBC, whatevs, just not via twitter or the Radio 4 comedy shows, which are usually how I find out what's going on. I'll also be doing some other stuff like volunteering for things, maybe signing up for sponsorship for the race, and marshalling at another a half marathon about 3 weeks in. 5 Singing "The Internationale" Or failing that, facilitating communications with our comrades overseas, say, by learning Portuguese.
