Grumble Officially Puts His Petals to the MetalHey, its Grumble. Your running warrior, your best friend, and your... challenge skipper? The challenge break was a good thing. I wandered off to Korea for a bit, worked from home, kinda took it easy. And I'm ready to dive back in. Plus, I'm all signed up for the L.A. Marathon next year, so no time like a racing arc in TAZ to get running! DON'T KILL TOM BODETT I am NOT restarting PHUL. I got invited into a 6 week challenge at a Camp (crossfit box without the crossfit branding) and I will be doing that instead. Starting on June 4th, I have a 6 week challenge (challengeception?) in which I have to lose 20 lbs in 30 sessions out of 42 days. Good news is I can do double days that count for 2 sessions. If I want to die. Which I might. But I can't, because then I would kill Tom Bodett. And that would be bad. Also, for those of you that are friends with me on the book of faces, I have to post each session. So even MOAR accountability. INSPIRE CAPTAIN CAPTAIN BANE Captain Captain Bane is a strong leader. And inspires others to greatness. So I wish to inspire him by succeeding in my next technical certification. I am studying for my CSA+ cert later this year, so the modules have begun. I will update with completed modules. WIN THE BATTLE WAGON RACING LEAGUE Gotta go faster. Since I am already marathon prepping, my goal is to run a sub 5 hour marathon. Cause I'm insane apparently. So I will need to figure out what I need to do, which I will, hopefully, over the course of this challenge. [UPDATE] Since I am doing to 6 week challenge, I will be doing ONLY longer slow runs. Which for me is 3-4 miles right now. Good thing I have plenty of time to tune my engine, unlike Tres Horny Boys. OUT CLEVER THE RAVEN Cause I don't have enough to do. My 7 year wedding anniversary just passed and (I DID NOT FORGET!) I wanted to do something extra. And I need a creative outlet. So why not combine the two and a penchance for burning things and do some pyrography. For my first project I am going to do a woodburning of a silhouette picture drawn by an artist at Disneyland. I've got all the tools, the tracing is done. I'll be posting progress photos as I go through it. Do the 6 week challenge. Post updates for each session completed Post each weigh in Work through MCSE training course Post completed modules. Run at least twice a week for 3 miles or more Post Fitbit/Runkeeper Results Complete my first woodburning project Post progress Photos
The War Against Depression
Jedediah The Wolf posted a topic in RangersBackStory: Hello, again my fellow Rangers! I've not been around at all this year despite multiple failed attempts. Truthfully this has been one of the most trying times in my life I have ever experienced. Within this past year, I've moved to a different city, put final preparations on my associate's degree, and had the most severe family problems. To top things off, I've been in a terrible haze of depression these last six months that I am only now starting to come out of. Since finally regaining a moment of clarity this month, I realized that depression had been my main foe all along when it comes to me being successful. Realizing this, I decided that I wanted to do something about it. My doctor recommended I take antidepressants and that is what I will be doing. However, I realize that medication is only a supplementation and I must put in the effort to achieve my goals as well. And so that is the point of this challenge, to simply start taking the small steps each day that will build into success. There is more to the story but for now, I just wanted to get this posted Without further ado, the challenge theme! Quest 1: Go Swole 4 days a week at 9pm (gym 4 days a week) Quest 2: Meditate every day at 5pm Quest 3: Knock sleep back by 5 mins every day Quest 4: Do anything related to my life's goals everyday (at the moment this is coding, writing, and cartography) Ranger Challenge Strength Feat: Complete 4 days in the gym Speed Feat: Row 1800 m in 10 minutes* Distance Feat: Run a full 2 half laps in park Combat Feat: Sign up for Archery Range Ranger Feat: Complete 4 mile Hiking trail despite the cold
