  1. Part Two: The Force Is With Me This is episode two of my Star Wars challenge A little background info: My goal for the year - similar to last year - is to do as many OCR's as possible, the only difference this year is that I want to do well in races and not just be a "fun runner". I'm nowhere near "elite OCR" material, but that's no reason I shouldn't push myself and see what I'm truly capable of. The OCR group that I'm a member of (Mudstacle) has a league where points are awarded for taking part in certain races. My aim is to do as well as I can in the qualifying events and get some decent points on the league table. To do this, I'm going to really need to up my game. I need to become a better, faster runner and more efficient on obstacle completion. This isn't going to be easy, but if I really want this, I'm going to need to become disciplined, I'm going to need dedication. I'm going to need to be a mother fucking Jedi. *NOW WITH ADDED DROIDS!* My goals are similar to the last challenge with a few adjustments. As much as I want to be a Jedi, right now, what I need to be is a Droid. I struggled with consistency near the end of the last challenge, so I'm thinking like a robot to make sure I get shit done. Goal 1: Run Run at least 3 times a week I had this as 4 times last challenge and I burnt out pretty quickly, probably due to everything else I'm trying to do alongside running. So I'm sticking with 3 runs a week, one mid-week run, parkrun on a Saturday and a long run on Sunday. Goal 2: Strength and Grip Strength Strength training 2-3 times a week Grip strength will be worked into these sessions. Climbing counts as both strength and grip work. My goal this challenge is to try to plan my strength training sessions a bit better so I don't miss out on the grip work and make sure all areas get a proper workout. Goal 3: Tracking Bullet Journal I started a bullet Journal last challenge but struggled to keep up with logging. I really want to be more organised so I'm going to keep this going. I'm also going to use it to keep a 'casual' food log. I'm not focusing on calories, I just want to be a bit more mindful of what I'm eating as I tend to eat crap and then have issues with my stomach. As this is an ongoing challenge, I'll be starting straight away.
  2. Welcome back to a Galaxy Far, Far Away. While this is a new challenge cycle, the goals are pretty much the same, because consistency builds habits, which leads to progress, which leads to success. Consistency will take focus, and this man told this annoying kid something really important about that: And, unlike much of what was scripted for his little green Master, he's not patently wrong. Main Goal I'm going to Blue Mountain, Ontario, in October for the 2017 OCR World Championships. Anyone who finishes three or more qualifying races in a single year can register to race as a Journeyman. I could register right now. I want to qualify as an Age Group competitor instead, meaning I have to earn my spot through competition. Sweet Baby Jesus, look at those things. I hope they are just as awesome again this year. I have my sights set on two possible qualifying races this year: Savage Race Chicago, July 30 Conquer the Gauntlet Des Moines, August 5 Every road race I am signed up for leading up to these events is a training run and I will be disappointed if I don't set a PR every time out. I don't have any timed road races during this cycle. I do have my first two Spartan Races of the year: I did this venue last year and it was awesome. It was also just as hot and cactus-y as it looks in this picture and yes, cactus spines are a pain in the wherever. Last year, when I earned a 5x Spartan Trifecta, I had my sights set on three mountain races that kicked my butt, and I considered all the other races training runs for those three. Not this year. In 2017, every Obstacle Course Race I am signed up for leading up to Savage and Conquer are going to be run at red-line. That means I am running back-to-back days in potential 85 degree heat as hard as I can and taking as few breathers as possible. We'll see how that works out. In my favor is the fact that the course is hilly but not mountainous, but that also works in the favor of actual runners, so there's that. Whether I wind up qualifying or not, this will be a good early indication of whether anything I've been doing - accumulating miles, weight training, obstacle training at Obstacle Academy - have helped at all, and it will help identify existing weaknesses. I'm more than just fairly obstacle-proficient; at any given race, I expect to complete nearly every obstacle. But right now, at my best, I am a middle-of-the-pack runner. This year I am focusing on Becoming Faster while Staying Strong and Improving My Endurance. And I am doing this by continuing What I Know Works. Goal: Road Training The plan for this challenge: Week 1: 3 miles Tuesday, 4 miles Wednesday, 3 miles Thursday, 8 miles weekend. Week 2: 3 miles Tuesday, 4 miles Wednesday, 3 miles Thursday. Weekend run will be replaced by Spartan Race. Week 3: 3 miles Tuesday, 5 miles Wednesday, 3 miles Thursday, 9 miles weekend. Week 4: 3 miles Tuesday, 5 miles Wednesday, 3 miles Thursday, 10 miles weekend. This is the schedule. Period. If I think I will have issues sticking to the schedule, I should probably find a way to get ahead of the schedule on any given week. Goal: Strength Training Part 1: Week 1: Boot camp Monday, Lift Day Tuesday, Lift Day Thursday, HIIT Friday, Obstacle Academy Saturday Week 2: Boot Camp Monday, Lift Day Tuesday, Light Body Weight Workout Friday, Spartan Race Saturday/Sunday Week 3: Boot Camp Monday, Lift Day Tuesday, Lift Day Thursday, HIIT Friday, Boot Camp Saturday Week 4: Boot Camp Monday, Lift Day Tuesday, Lift Day Thursday, HIIT Friday, Boot Camp Saturday Part 2: I will be working on my pull-up proficiency to get back what I had two years ago (and surpass it). I have a pull-up bar at home. Every time I pass through the door, I need to do a couple. Not to failure, I'm stealing the Grease the Groove training method from @Big_Show. I'll be recording the total number of pull-ups completed every day, not just full dead-hang strict pull-ups. This should be a double-digit number daily or I'm not trying. Goal: Plate Training More of What I Know Works, but I'm refining this, because I work with smart people. This will take more discipline but account for variation in my activity levels. This means I'm going to have to do full, weekly meal planning and pre-preparation. This is a ramp-up of what I've been doing. I know it works. And I know that given the proper amount of focus, I can achieve my goals. Pictured: goals.
  3. C_Q's Plan for 2017 After a disastrous end to 2016, thanks to a rather horrible cold, I'm ready to do some ass kicking in 2017. My goal for the year - similar to last year - is to do as many OCR's as possible, the only difference this year is that I want to do well in races and not just be a "fun runner". I'm nowhere near "elite OCR" material, but that's no reason I shouldn't push myself and see what I'm truly capable of. The OCR group that I'm a member of (Mudstacle) has a league where points are awarded for taking part in certain races. My aim is to do as well as I can in the qualifying events and get some decent points on the league table. To do this, I'm going to really need to up my game. I need to become a better, faster runner and more efficient on obstacle completion. This isn't going to be easy, but if I really want this, I'm going to need to become disciplined, I'm going to need dedication. I'm going to need to be a mother fucking Jedi. Part One: I Am One With The Force My first two challenges of this year are inspired by Chirrut Îmwe's mantra in Rogue One. The guy might not be a Jedi, but he knows the power of the force and he has faith in it. I must have faith in myself that I can do the things I want if I just put the effort in and try my hardest. Plus, he's a total badass. Goal 1: Run Hopefully I won't come across AT-ACTs while I'm out for a run. Run at least 4 times a week I was going to go crazy and say I would run every day in January, but it's probably best to do something that I've got a better chance of sticking to! I'm going to aim to run as much as possible, even if it's just a 20 minute run around the block. But if I run at least 4 times in a week, that's a pass. Goal 2: Strength and Grip Strength Couldn't find a Rogue One Vader choke gif. Internet, you have failed me (for the last time). I planned on working on my grip strength last challenge but got sidetracked by illness. The goal will be to do my usual strength training 3 times a week and work on my grip at the same time. This can be any grip exercise like deadhangs, plate grips, climbing and pull ups (which both count as strength training too). I'll be testing how long I can deadhang for at the beginning of this challenge and then again at the end to see how much I've improved. Goal 3: Tracking Mine is built on a Bullet Journal....... I started a bullet journal over Christmas in a bid to get myself more organised. I've not really got the hang of using it correctly yet, but I've started a Monthly habits page where I can mark off tasks when I've done them; such as running and Domestic Rangering. This will help keep me accountable and give me a good idea of where I need to make improvements. This is what it looks like. It's very short at the moment, but I can add more tasks if I need to, but I'll probably keep it quite simple for this month. I'll try and post an updated picture of the habits list each week for extra accountability.
  4. My last challenge of 2016 really fizzled out. I got sick, I got overwhelmed with the holidays, and I feel like I am starting over from scratch. That's not true, though. I have actual metrics from where I was, and where I am now, and progress is undeniable. But I'm not where I want to be. Main Goal I'm going to Blue Mountain, Ontario, in October for the 2017 OCR World Championships. Anyone who does three or more races in a single year qualifies to race Journeyman. I could register right now. I want to qualify as an Age Group competitor instead, meaning I have to earn my spot through competition. Sweet Baby Jesus, look at those things. I hope they are just as awesome again this year. I have my sights set on three possible qualifying races this year: Savage Race Chicago, July 30 Conquer the Gauntlet Des Moines, August 5 Every road race I am signed up for leading up to these are training runs. This year, I aim to take that training seriously. My first race of the year has been switched due to being over-committed. I didn't run on New Years Day, instead I'm running a 10k on Jan 28, so that will be my first event of the year. My goal is to shave 2 minutes off my finish from the Moustache Run at the end of November. Last year, when I earned a 5x Spartan Trifecta, I had my sights set on three mountain races that kicked my butt, and I considered all the other races training runs for those three. Not this year. In 2017, every Obstacle Course Race I am signed up for leading up to Savage and Conquer are going to be run at red-line. It would be great to qualify for OCRWC early and be able to build some confidence going into October. We'll see how that works out. I'm more than just fairly obstacle-proficient; at any given race, I expect to complete nearly every obstacle. But right now, at my best, I am a middle-of-the-pack runner. Now I have to Get Faster and Stay Strong. And in order to do these things, I have to Stick With What I Know Works. If you've ever followed me before, you know what's coming. Goal: Run Blah Blah Blah I believe the actual quote turned out to be "That's not how the Force works!" Not my favorite thing. I have a plan, however, and it was actually going well for the last half of November and, well, I feel like I'm back to Square One. Yeah, I know I'm not. But it feels that way. My plan says to run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and once during the weekend, with my longer runs coming on Wednesday and the weekend. I have a training plan and enough races on the schedule to keep me moving forward. Game on. Word up, Frink. Goal: A Jedi's Strength Flows Blah Blah Blah Luke Skywalker, elder abuser. I will bitch and moan about how little weight I can lift right up until I don't anymore. It's on me to make that happen. My lifting classes are every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, now that my XFit class has been removed from the schedule (sad man, sigh). That makes my weekly schedule look like this: Tuesday: Lift day Thursday: Lift day Friday: HIIT Saturday: Boot Camp You will see lots and lots of photos of whiteboards in the coming months. Goal: How Grow You So Big Blah Blah Blah Pictured: Me, the morning after Christmas, lounging next to a chick in Slave Leia garb and some dude in brown Every. Damn. Challenge. It is amazing how fast my body wants to revert to its previous state of not awesomeness. I'm back to tracking daily. Macros: 1750-2250 calories per day125-150 grams protein35+ grams fiber<2800 grams sodium 2017: The year I stopped calling myself "Old, Fat and Out Of Shape" and took myself seriously. You're going to get tired of seeing me post these things.
  5. OK, I'm coming up blank on a theme this month, so I'm being very boring and not doing one. I couldn't think of anything that fit my goals, and to be honest, right now I can't be bothered to spend ages constructing a whole theme, looking for gifs and pictures etc. This month I want to spend some time focusing on a couple of weak points and, well, just getting shit done. As anyone who knows me knows, my passion is OCR (Obstacle Course Racing). I'm not an athlete by any means, I'd class myself as a competitive fun runner - I like to push myself to my limit, but I'm not obsessed with timings or race positions. I'd love to be that person at the front, tearing up the course, but I'm nowhere near that good and doubt I ever will be. I've started booking up my races for next year but my first OCR probably won't be until around April. So I'll be spending winter doing all the boring training so I'm ready when the fun starts again next spring. In my opinion, two of the most important elements of OCR are running and grip strength. I'm a very average runner, but this is mostly because up until now, I've been content to just plod along at the same pace and have never put any real effort into getting faster. I know I can go faster and further, I just need to put the effort in. Grip strength is becoming more and more important as OCR evolves and the obstacles become more complex (rigs, lache bars, spinning monkey bars). My grip strength isn't too bad - I can complete an average set of monkey bars - but it's not good enough to complete rigs or complicated monkey bars / rings. So, my plan for this month is to work on these elements and also pay attention to my mobility. Without further ado, my goals: Get my little legs moving faster: - Run 3-4 times a week - Make one of these runs a speed work session - Attend every parkrun between now and Christmas: parkrun takes place on Saturday's and is a free, timed 5k run. I suck at getting up early on a Saturday to get there, but I made a promise to a friend that I would be there every week up until Christmas, so I'm adding it to the challenge to make sure I keep that promise. Hang On!: - Train my grip - not yet sure on frequency on this one, will test during zero week and come back to this - Climb as much as possible: I tend to go climbing once a week but I'm going to try and squeeze in some extra sessions if I can Stop my limbs falling off: - Warm up correctly and cool down / stretch afterwards - Do at least one 20min+ mobility session per week
  6. I am seriously busted up. I ran my first ever OCR just a few days ago: Savage Race in Atlanta. And I have to say this: I cannot wait to do another one. It might be some time before I get to do another one -- this shit is expensive! -- but it's on the list for sure. First things first: I finished, which was my only goal. Perhaps the low-hanging fruit, there, but for a first race, not knowing what to expect, it seemed silly to look for more. And I finished respectably: Within the top 50% of finishers, both overall and within my age group. Which I think is pretty awesome! The course itself was nasty even without the obstacles, some of the most ridiculous hills I've ever run (or walked) on; with the obstacles, it was absolutely brutal. I had hoped to finish the race in under two hours, and I missed that by a damn sight, coming in just at two and a half. But that's okay! There is always room for improvement, and seeing as I can't wait to sign up for another race, I might as well start the training now: and that's what this challenge is about. Out of 27 obstacles, I only failed to finish three of them, so that's where I'm focusing for this challenge. I failed on a climbing wall halfway across, I failed on some upsy-downsy monkey bars (Sawtooth, if you're familiar) just past halfway, and I failed on some ropes (think Ninja Warrior finals, stage 2) almost immediately. See what those obstacles have in common? I do! GRIP STRENGTH and DEAD HANGS. I've been working pull-ups for the past year or so, and I've gotten pretty solid at them, but it's one thing to practice pull-ups in the controlled environment of my garage or a lonely playground; it's another to count on that strength when you're suspended ten feet in the air on the fifteenth rung of a devilish set of monkey bars. My goal for the next OCR I tackle is completing EVERY obstacle, which means I need to shore up that grip strength. So: 1. Grip Strength. I've got some trainers (the clampy thingies) at my job, and I need to be practicing -- and improving! -- on those every day. Currently I can do about five reps on the 200lb grip, but I'd like to get that up to ten reps by the end of the challenge. That means working them a little bit every day, which is easy enough when I'm at work. I also need to work on some different grips, since it's not always about the lovely solid bar, so I'm going to try doing some rope work (the ROTC room at my school has some ropes, so maybe I'll go make some friends there). 5 days a week drilling grip strength. Let's grow some new calluses. 2. Dead Hangs. This is something I haven't even trained, and now, looking at where I came up short, it feels like a tremendous oversight. I'll be honest: I don't even know how long I can hold a dead hang in pull-up position. So -- first things first, get a max-duration dead hang, and then, build upon that. Arbitrarily I'd like to improve my dead hang duration by 20%. That seems reasonable, but who the hell knows? We'll adjust this goal as the challenge develops. 3. Just keep running. Running is the heart and soul of my training, and it's going well, but I'm also coming off the medication I've been on for three months for my plantar fasciitis. The most important thing is keeping the runs consistent and stretching regularly throughout the day so that I can continue running without pain. Four runs a week, with foot stretches and ankle mobility exercises every day. EVERY DAY, you lazy non-stretcher, you. (Body weight exercises and pull-ups and the paces and distances of my runs are incidental but baked into this challenge, so I'll be documenting those if not focusing on them.) So, yeah. I took a challenge off because things were so overwhelming at my new job, but the new routine is pretty much in place, so it's time to get back on the horse and get back to some NF challenges. Let's get down to business.
  7. During this challenge I'll be continuing on my 2016 mission to earn five Spartan Trifectas. Each Trifecta comes from completing one of each of the three Spartan Race distances - Sprint, Super, Beast. I completed my first Trifecta back in May when I survived the Montana Spartan Beast. I've been nursing some minor injuries, training, and doing a few shorter or less-brutal races since that race in preparation for my two biggest challenges of this year: The Breckenridge Spartan Beast on 27 August The Killington Spartan Beast on 17 September There's a strong chance these are the two most brutal courses on the entire Spartan calendar: Breckenridge due to the altitude, and Killington due to the fact that last year, there were complaints that the course was not hard enough. I'm more than a little terrified of both. Being terrified isn't going to help me complete either event. Training will. I'll continue with my usual regimen at my gym, which is heavy weights on Tuesday and Thursday, except on race weeks, when I'll skip lifting on Thursday but do a body weight set instead. I'm consistent enough with this that it doesn't need to be a goal, it's just a thing that I do. Goal: Ascend the Spire This is Minnesota and there is no "Up" here, not like there is in Colorado and Vermont. We have a couple hills - and by "a couple" I mean, like, ten - but no mountains. I've been running hills all summer, and emphasizing significant change in climb when I've run trail, while being smart about this ankle problem I've had since I limped down the mountain in Montana. I tweaked it again in Illinois at the end of July when I ran the Chicago Savage Race (also a blast, btw), but it's healing and caused me less issues than my right last weekend at the MN Terrain Race. As long as I continue to wear my brace, I should be fine. Goal: Run 3x per week, 2x with significant elevation change. Goal: Hold Fast This thing will be back on the course at Killington. Holy crap. DO YOU SEE THIS? LOOK AT IT. This looks horrible. Beyond the fact that there's a swim in a lake in Vermont in September, I struggle with rope grips like this. If only there were somewhere that I could do grip-specific training... Oh yeah. They opened a gym five minutes from my office. Goal: 1x/week training session at Ninjas United Goal: Strength Flows from the Force I'm stressed out. All. The. Time. I have a senior-level software development job that has taken more time in the last year than it did in the first three, and that doesn't appear to be changing any time soon. I have a second job as a personal trainer that takes time. I am a single parent of five kids, including two in middle school, which starts back up in three weeks. I am a volunteer leader with my church youth group. This year I accepted a nomination to the church board because literally nobody else would do it. I've adjusted my race schedule for the remainder of the year to compensate, but I'm flat-out tired all the time. It's time to make sure I can feel the flow. And I suck at this part. Goal: Spend 30 minutes per day in meditation and prayer. I'm going to do my best to keep this thread current and active. Keep me accountable, Rangers.
  8. Part 3 of the Superdad series: DAD OF STEEL A Superdad is Big and Strong Goal 1 - 1xBW Sandbag Floor Press for 3 reps A Superdad Looks Good in his Super-Suit Goal 2 - 34" waist A Superdad has a Firm Grasp Goal 3 - Do at least one grip-strengthening exercise with each workout (16 total) A Superdad lends a Helping Hand Goal 4 - Do at least two things that help my wife around the house each day (14 per week) I will try to come back and add more description to these goals as Week 1 progresses, but I wanted to get something started.
  9. So I have been doing a version of simple and sinister, by version I alternate days between swings and snatches. I am capable of doing the 10 sets of 10 snatches, however I have to attempt doing them alternating hands per set. At the moment I am doing 5L and 5R each set. I am having issues with my grip on the left as I progress. Before I move to doing one hand per set, I feel the need to improve my grip strength. I am looking for suggestions. Currently, I have moved down from 24kg to 20kg and alternating arm per set(1st set is 10 left, 2nd set is 10 right). I am looking at purchasing Captains of Crush grip strength training. Does anyone have information on this product or grip training in general that could help out.
  10. Here's to hoping I don't get walking pneumonia this time around, heh. Getting back in the swing for a bright new year! Quest 1 - Food does a body good Ever since I got sick, I've been pretty lackadaisical about my diet. We're getting back to the basics with strict keto. I'm aiming for under 30 net carbs, and I've got a one week plan set up for repetition. Eventually, for variety, I'll work in more meal options, but this first four weeks will be strict sticking to a plan. Quest 2 - Get that blood moving again Three times a week do a full session of Nerd Fitness Yoga. On weekends where the windchill is above zero, take the dogs for a walk. Also, add in some grip strengthening work - hanging from my pull up bar every morning for increasing lengths of time, and increasing amounts of fingertip push ups. Quest 3a - Routine makes the mind and body happy Get out of bed when my alarm goes off! That means - weekdays at 6am. I'll need the time to make breakfast and take care of the cats before work. 9am on weekends - I let my schedule get too FUBAR'd on weekends, making Monday brutal. Quest 3b - Routine makes the mind and body happy Stick to the budget set out for my month. I let me Xmas spending get out of control per usual and need to get that back under wraps. Step one? Actually stick to a budget for 1 month. Also, to keep myself checking in here, I hereby promise to post at least one picture of at least one of my pets a day. Cats and kittens and doggies and fishes! <3 <3 <3
  11. Lilith Level 2 Kitten (definitely not yet a Cat, or Tiger, or...) Main quest: Kitteh wants to climb higher and higher! Lilith, the chubby little kitten puts her claws into a new adventure, quite literally! She, and her brother and sister kittens are growing fast! So fast mommy cat can't always keep up with all their little tricks and adventures. Lilith is especially great at happily pouncing out of sight - just a little longer each and every time. Her slightly bigger brother, Ravi, challenges Lilith ever so often. They are the two oldest, boldest, most adventurous of the bunch and there's a constant struggle to be better! Lilith hisses at Ravi, as he's prowling after her. "Leave me alone! I have lots of stuff to do - ALONE!" and off she was. She had discovered a love for climbing things, as she's not quite the jumper yet. Whenever she was on a new high object, higher than the last, she felt like a fierce Tiger, or no, Lion! RAAAAAAAWRRRRR. There it was, a new obstacle! .... THE FLUFFY PILLOW! Lilith squints her eyes in concentration, and... Meow. *sadface* Didn't go quite as expected. Ravi, of course, parades just a bit higher than her, on a big soft chair. Grrrrrrr. (Lilith is getting quite the growling practice!) She has a plan, though. What if she got so good at climbing she could feed herself... Instead of waiting to be fed.... She would be the litter's heroine! I have to keep on trying, Lilith thought. Practice makes purrrrfect! In order to help my alter ego Lilith, I will have to work on my climbing skills, and get better! In order to do that I have three goals. Goal 1: Workout - Kitteh loves being busy! Workout 5 times a week, of which one should be actual climbing (bouldering or toprope). Workout can be anything: strenght training, Insanity, ZWOWs, other bodyweight circuits, HIIT, running, pilates. Mostly it will be bodyweight training, or with some of the makeshift weights I have, because I only workout at home. Why not climb more often than once a week? Simple, I simply don't have the money to do that. This is already stretching my budget (usually I go every other week). Goal 2: Climbing Skill Practice - Little kittens want to grow skills! Work on various skills that help with climbing - 4 times a week. This can be: - Working on grip strength - Working on pullups - Working on mobility - Working on flexibility/yoga - Working on balance (slackline, indoboard, anything) - Working on pistol squats Goal 3: Walking - Wanderlust, and adventure seeking! Walk as much as possible! This will help with the epic quest, which is stated further down below. I challenge myself to walk at least 100km during the challenge. I will track this with gps and I will not map my 'normal' walking throughout the day, only hikes in the forest or otherwise purposefully going on a walk. If I happen to exceed my expectations I will just add another 100km bar! Lets see how many I get to fill up 100%100% 3.3%3.3% Week 1 Workouts 5/5 Skill practice 4/4 Week 2 Workouts 5/5 Skill practice 4/4 Week 3 Workouts 4/5 Skill practice 4/4 Week 4 Workouts 4/5 Skill practice 4/4 Week 5 Workouts 5/5 Skill practice 5/4 Week 6 Workouts 5/5 Skill practice 4/4 Grading All three goals count equally. Goal 1: No workout missed is A, for every 2 workouts missed I lose 1 grade. Goal 2: No skill practice missed is A, for every 1 skill practice missed I lose 1 grade. Goal 3: Complete the 100km = A, every 10km less I lose 1 grade. Epic quest: From 73kg to 54kg This is definitely the ultimate motive behind all these challenges. However, I choose not to focus on weightloss or food right now. I'm recovering from binge eating disorder, and tracking those on the challenges, I noticed last time, was very triggering for me. I would rather challenge myself on what my body can DO rather than how it looks. I'm not going to post weigh-ins, but in my signature you can follow my journey to a healthy weight. Looking forward to smashing this challenge with all of you!
