  1. So I have been struggling on my challenges for a few years(understatement), but I thought deeply and realized what made me really happy when I was most active on NF around 2015. It was a rucking PVP. Taking this knowledge and what I need to do to improve myself I enrolled in the weight loss PVP for the next 10 weeks. I am right above 170lbs and would like to get below 160lbs by Memorial Day weekend, specifically Saturday May 29th. I leave for a week long vacation in the Florida Keys and am staying on the water and will be bringing my boat. I think that whole week will be spent fishing, snorkel
  2. I pretty much gave up last challenge and ate So last challenge I did two GORUCKS and then really just sat around and ate. two years a go my pre IRONMAN Texas race weight was 163lbs. Up until a few months a go I have stayed down in the 165's or so. That has recently gone way off the charts though. This morning I was 175lbs. That being said I know a lot of it is sodium but I still have gained close to 10lbs I am guessing. It is not helping that my In Laws are here until Sunday and we are drinking and eating out every night. I can try to use that excuse but last nights bu
  3. I have been planning on making a battle log for a while now. I have been in and out of the challenges for 3 or 4 years now. I have enjoyed them but I think for now I am done with them. I used to be bigger into lifting and rucking and then shifted into the world of IRONMAN. In 2017/2018 I finished two full IRONMANs struggled through a couple of GORUCK challenges and generally was not too happy with my fitness. This past year(2018) I have kind of been lazy and not focused much on a goal, I did a few sprint triathlons and a GORUCK light. For 2019 my new game plan is to hit the triath
  4. So I signed up for a GORUCK Heavy in January. I need to get rucking, miles on my feet as well as build muscle while losing fat. For those that do not know what this is, here is the description from the website: So with a pack loaded with a 30lb weight plus water and food/gear we will travel around 40 miles in 24 hours. All lead by a special forces Cadre. Sounds fun right. Leading up to it I have a back to back regular Challenge and Light in October, as well as two sprint triathlons in September and October. Goals for this challenge: Get worki
  5. So I have decided to sign up for a GORUCK HTL. This is dumb, but man it is going to be fun. Ok a little information on this event. https://www.goruck.com/htl/ "A GORUCK Heavy - all 24+ hours of it - is a significant religious experience. Upon completion, the last thing your body will want is more. And yet, if you have that fire in your belly, it craves more kindling. So you’ll get little to no sleep as you dry your feet out and eat as many calories, preferably hot, as a human body can endure. You’ll set your alarm for when, not if, you fall asleep, wherever it’s dry. An
  6. This time around I am settled in Florida and ready to commit to a challenge. I know I know, this sounds like a broken record the past few challenges. This time I am serious! A big issue is I have a GORUCK Challenge in a week from Friday on the 28th. I have been rucking but I have not been lifting much. I am going to break this challenge into some themes for catching JAWS and assign point values to the categories. Boat In order to catch JAWS I need to have a solid boat. For me this will be my daily home habits. Things like taking the trash out, doing dishes,
  7. So in my last challenge I noticed some interesting things about my habits. I have noticed whenever I over eat or drink, I do the other one. So if I would have a bad lunch at work, it was followed by drinking in the evening, or if I had a drink in the evening I would eat some shitty food and miss my calorie goals. It seems like I have a defeatist attitude for the day as soon as I mess one thing up. Now that I have identified this I am going to hopefully correct it. For this challenge I am going to attempt to continue to eat properly(2,000 calories and < 100 grams of
  8. OK Nerds, for this one I am going to be traveling all over the world attempting to fight opponents. For this challenge I am assigning some taks to each fighter and if I can achieve a certain % of tasks completed I win! Let's get started. Zangief Zangief is going to be the tasks of lifting 3 times a week, although I will have 1-2 off around an event(talked about later). As well in order to get strong he doesn't drink...much, I mean he is russian. So I will only be drinking light beer one night a week. I have to fit it into my calorie
  9. So after about 6 weeks of sloth and vacation I need to get my act back together. I have since gained about 5-6 lbs so losing those and continuing to try to find visible abs is a goal. I have a GORUCK Light on 12/10 and then a back to back Light/Tough on 1/13-1/14. I really did not want to do these but they are the MLK themed ones and he was such a great man I figure I could endure the cold for him. I have IRONMAN Texas 4/22 and I just signed up for EAGLEMAN in June since it will be my sisters first half IRONMAN. So for this challenge I am really tryin
  10. Second verse same as the first! Well, almost the same at least. My GORUCK event is on November 11. I would like to not feel like dying during most of the event, so that is what my training plan is geared toward in the next few weeks. Goal 1. Condition 8 conditioning sessions prior to the GORUCK Goal 2. Ruck 4 stadium runs, hikes, or weighted walks that are at least 3 miles prior to the GORUCK Goal 3. Diaphragmatic Breathing 20 diaphragmatic breathing sessions, try to create a habit around bedtime. Goal 4. Clean 20 sessions of 20 minutes of clean
  11. The lions sing and the hills take flight. The moon by day, and the sun by night. Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool. Let the Lord of Chaos rule. Aiyaa. I must hate myself. There's 47 different POV characters in this book, and the prologue is 30K words. But, lots of cool things happen here. Can't deny that. Anyway, the month's work is cut out for me. NaNoWriMo is up in about a week, and I got a GoRuck to perform. We're coming down to the wire in terms of how prepared we're going to be for that (and by we, I mean me. I'm sure @RisenPhoenix has this in hand).
  12. JAPAN! So for part of this adventure I will be traveling to Japan for a 12 day vacation(11/1 - 11/12). I plan on doing some fitness there and tracking all the walking I plan on doing with my garmin. I will also be posting heavy on here with photos. IRONMAN Maryland did not go well. The swim was cancelled and the bike was only 100 miles. The run was partially through water. Because of this we are now signed up for IRONMAN Texas on 4/22. I need to keep training the 3 disciplines of triathlon whether I would like to or not so that I can finish there. I do plan
  13. The priority and focus of the following 8 weeks will be on preparing for the GORUCK tough challenge we're doing for @RisenPhoenix's 30th birthday on November 11. My strength is there but my endurance and conditioning is woeful, so I'll need this time to get my butt in gear. I anticipate the colder temperature to make this a lot more mentally grueling for me so my body better be as ready as possible to keep the loads lighter. I'll still get some gymnastics in and may continue lifting heavy, but only if it means I can still manage the other workouts I've slated for myself. Goal 1. C
  14. So I got to Camp Nerd Fitness early, even though I'm not a helper, and trying to be helpful. While waiting to be helpful, I figured I'd toss up my thread since I know what's going on. In two months, November 11th, I have a GORUCK challenge. How much training have I done for it you ask? Precious little. On top of that I want to test for first kyu in December. And on top of THAT I recently hit my fabled goal of a stable 200 pounds, so I want to try and transition my diet to a much more reasonable maintenance level. So how to approach these things: 1) GORUCK training 3 ti
  15. Not much going on this challenge in terms of nerd content and games. Sorry no zombies or neighbors to be saved. I took last challenge off and hit kind of a meh period, had a lovely bike wreck and luckily did not break anything(going 18 MPH and the wheel snapped all the way to the left suddenly) but suffered some nice road rash and some general poopy attitude about being so sore and missing workouts. 2 weeks afterwards I was pretty much pain free. I am now only 2 weeks out from my IRONMAN so number one focus is training/diet. I am going to continue my old method of posting daily habits and chor
  16. Doctorake's Final Fantasy In coming off my last challenge I wanted to try something more weekly based as opposed to a daily list of stuff that had really been stressing me out. I want the ability to take a day where I ignore some stuff and not have a penalty because of it. So here I am needing to restore the four crystals and bring balance back into my world. I will have a daily battle and update the day after like I usually do. I will log my 4 areas of focus and see how high of a % I can renew each crystal. Earth Crystal The Ea
  17. LOADED CARRIES: 4 events with extra weight [x] Murph RX [x] GORUCK Tough [x] Lift Up Autism [ ] SLEEP: Bed before 2300. Track sleep with Sleep Cycle App. READ: Read all required schoolwork by Saturday. Finish reading The Hybrid Athlete.
  18. ZOMBIES ATE MY RANGERS CHALLENGE! For those that do not know, this was an amazing game originally for the SNES system in which you would adventure through levels 1 or 2 players and gain items/weapons while attempting to save your neighbors. You could die by losing health or by losing all 10 neighbors. I loved playing it as a kid and really need to put it on my retro pie when I get a chance. So I will start with 10 lucky Neighbors/Rangers to be saving. Neighbors: @raptron @Tanktimus the Encourager @DJtrippyT @Jarric @Lifter5 @WorldSpa
  19. And so it begins again.... The boring backstory Main Over-arching Goal: My goal is still to lose bodyfat and gain strength. I still haven't been to Onederland but my ultimate goal is somewhere over that rainbow. Main goal for this challenge: The main goal for this challenge is to prepare for the GoRuck next month. I also have no time to waste this summer so I want to enjoy every minute of it. I really liked the structure of my last challenge. I'll continue tracking 6 core goals that all work together for success though each one may be tracked a l
  20. New Challenge! So I skipped the last challenge due to busyness and laziness. Since the IRONMAN New Orleans 70.3 I have been eating like Kirby from Nintendo and just inhaling everything. I need to get back on track starting this week, especially since Eagleman 70.3 is Sunday. I did PR my 5k last Monday with a 7:21 mile pace which as very nice since I had not PR'd for 6 years, and I beat it by about 1:30. The training is paying off! I have finally managed some good time management with training and life and I would like to invest some time into my hobbies. So I will be po
  21. Seven years have passed since the Treaty of Coruscant established a peace between the Sith Empire and Republic. Now an ongoing cold war exists between the two faction as both sides vy for resources and struggle to gain the edge over the other however they can without igniting a galaxy-wide conflict, though there remain those who would see it so. Many grizzled veterans have returned to their mercenary roots and now act as hired guns for ambitious Imperial elements or find themselves taking whatever work they can find among the criminal elements in the seedy underbelly of the galaxy...
  22. Hey Folks, So who here is signed up for the upcoming GORUCK's? We are six weeks out and looking forward to the events!
  23. Hey all! Now that tinybaby is almost 9 months I'm jumping back into the swing of things. And why not do so with Team Spearhead's Pathfinder 12 week challenge?? These 4 weeks I will: Ruck 2 miles daily Complete 7 WODs Team Lead once Complete 2 more Pre/Post WOD rucks Life goal: Help the pitbull rescue/ foster nonprofit I'm assisting with their start up. (Gritty Pitty - Longmont CO) Let's do this!!!
  24. Welcome to the RuckFit Light 2016, the Nerd Fitness rucking PvP program. This PvP will run alongside the current four Week Challenge, starting Monday, April 4th. Lately there has been an enigmatic surge of interest in GoRuck challenges and rucking in general, emanating largely from the Ranger forums and spreading outward. I present to you a beginner-friendly GoRuck-style Nerd Fitness PvP for the rucking masses. The First Rule of RuckFit is Always Talk About RuckFit. The Second Rule of RuckFit is Although This Is
  25. Me the last two weeks: So After IRONMAN 70.3 New Orleans I slacked and ate like Kirby. Last week I got my butt in gear and hit all my workouts. This challenge I am going to keep hitting my workouts, eat appropriately, get my house work done, and stay on target. Each day I will pick a Video game character to be my goal. No races during this challenge other than a Memorial Day 5k, I may sign up for a GORUCK over memorial day weekend as well, but it will be a last minute thing.
