This should probably be a Warriors challenge, but after seeing only one four week challenge last go-round I figured I'd stay home or this one. I'm doing some highland games training since my weight room is under construction at the Y. I think I'll be looking for a games to compete in in June/July so this will be a great way to get familiar with the ways of the Highlander. 1 – Learn the ways of the Highlander. I need to learn the heavy athletic throws. This means I need to work on the weight for distance, the weight for height, the hammer throw, the stone put, the sheaf toss, and the mighty caber toss. I’m going to practice one per day 5 days a week as part of my strength training. 2 – Stay strong to fight off your challengers. My gym is being renovated and invaded by New Year’s Resolutioners so I’m headed outside into the cold. It’s fine. I’m immortal. In addition to my one throw per day I need to work on I’m going to maintain my strength training using the throwing implements. I’ll shuffle what I’m doing with which throw I’m training for to keep my whole body shaped up. It’s on my spreadsheet here:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15BFIglpwcEFL8w-nXh2c900uZ9ub2CAxDxtSo-KBYDw/edit?usp=sharing 3 – CHARGE! I’m running a marathon in May and I need to start looking ahead now. I have a schedule in place that starts with rigid requirements starting the same day as the challenge. I have 4 runs per week (days subject to change) and I plan on running home from work on weekdays (about 3k) and then heading on to the rest of the run (minimum 5k total). Saturdays are my long runs starting at 22k. I have a spreadsheet here:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eu4HT1hH7EYHRwhq3GhIJqT-cJAWubGGFY4V7ZeuW4o/edit?usp=sharing 4 – Shameless cash grab. I spend most of my money on food (thanks, celiac’s disease) and we need to tighten our belts because the credit card got out of control the past several months. We have a move to plan for (our lease is up April 1st), a mode of transport to buy (car, truck, or motorcycle), a honeymoon to go on in August (Ireland), and I am being required to learn to ride a horse (see honeymoon). We’ve got a lot of debt repayment and saving to do and not a lot of time to do it in. I’m going to have to find the cheapest ways to hit my nutrition goals and that means a lot of careful planning, meal prep, and most likely butchery. My wife and I also have to come up with a monthly budget from now until August (and probably beyond) that we can stick to. I'm keeping these spreadsheets private. I don't have any more goals I just found that and why WOULDN'T I put that in this thread?
