Alright. I'm bowing out of the challenges for a bit. Well, at least for this one. I've got the World Championship Spartan Beast this coming Saturday. After that, I've got about a week of easy training. And, then I'll be ramping it up once again with a new training plan. But, I don't feel that the confines of the challenge make sense for what I am doing right now. So, screw it. Here's a battle log.
'Sup Scouts? I'm the worst about actually finishing challenge, so in addition to my main goal, the meta-challenge is to actually finish this challenge. And I think I've finally figured out my main challenge... RUN THE 2014 BOSTON MARATHON (April 21, 2014) Now you're probably thinking that I'm crazy because people like my friend's marathon-running dad haven't qualified for Boston and I've only run 4 miles once. However, my university near Boston sponsors a Marathon Team, where everyone can run with the team and 100 people get numbers (the rest can do bandit, which I'll do if I don't get a number, unless I get injured. Priority goes to students about to leave and I'm a senior...so there's hope?) Anywho...challenge goals: Go to every marathon team run/interval training. I've been pretty bad about this for last few weeks, including this morning. It's Wednesday/Sunday runs and Tuesday interval training all in the morning, which (as a creature of darkness) is something I'm not a fan of. Run at least one other day during the week. Do this guy every morning. Modified a little bit because I live on the third floor of a very old college dorm where the walls are thin and I am self-conscious. I might drop this goal if I'm not seeing any sort of "Oh man I'm sure feeling awesome today!" results or something like that after a week or two. (Corollary to this one is getting up with my first alarm at 9:30. You'd think that wouldn't be difficult but you haven't seen my desire to not get out of bed.)The obvious exception to 1 and 2 is injury or illness, maybe if I have an exam late in the day, but midterm season is basically over so I'm in the clear. LIFE GOAL: Apply for at least one job every week Like I said, I'm a college senior. I took the FE a couple weeks ago and just handed in my term paper on Monday, so there goes all the things I said I would do before I started applying for jobs. The first one's always the hardest. Here we go...
