  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 ev
  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 registe
  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 qua
  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 s
  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 t
  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!
  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
  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
  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 o
  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
  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 th
