Kiwi Hits the RoadKiwiâ€™s 4th challenge: Kiwi hits the road. Looks like life is going to be busy and Iâ€™m once again off to find gold in obscure parts of the world! Also I want to get back into road running (beep beep) as Iâ€™m heading far far away from my beloved beach, so that means that this kiwi is hitting the road. This is going to be interesting as I will not have complete control on the things I usually do (food and time to exercise), so this is going to be a good challenging challenge. Goals #1: Scout Quest STA 2 DEX 2 3 runs a week (total 18) on sealed roads, working on building my road running back up and not irritating old injuries. Usual kiwi grading system. Aim is to complete 3 runs (even if small) as need to build up slowly. #2 Abs Quest STR 4 There is a competition at the gym at the moment for prone holds, Iâ€™m currently in 4th spot after a 5 min 30 sec hold (the leader is on 12 mins!) but this got me thinking, I want to be able to do an 8 min prone hold. So A=8mins+ B=7.5+ C=7+ etc #3 Food Quest CON 3 Track track track! Yip itâ€™s writing down everything time. Not sure how much control I will have over my food on the road but if I report on it, I will feel accountable and not eat crap if it is available. So thatâ€™s 42 days of food tracking goodness. Going to be a bit generous on the grading since Iâ€™m not sure on my Internet access. A= 35+ days logged B= 30-34 C=25-29 etc. Note â€“ I have no intention of tracking calories or anything like that, Im going to try and stay as Paleo as possible as loving the progress I made here last challenge. #4 Level up: Stop procrastinating! WIS 1 CHA 3 Um not quite sure how to attack this, and make it an achievable goal (will think of that later â€“ kidding!) um I guess somehow making a prioritised to do list and rate myself each week on if I achieved things but more importantly if I put things off and if I did fun things (like running) over important things. Could really used some help here on making this goal better and gradable. Perhaps something to do with achieving a number of goals off my bonus extras list. Bonus Extras Complete as many of the following (some of these come under goal 4 for things I have been putting off!) Â· Work 2 hours a week on my novel (aim: 12 hours total) Â· Work 2 hours a week on my thesis (aim: 12 hours total) Â· Continue Stronglifts program 3 x week until I depart NZ and loose gym access Â· Submit work invoices every 2 weeks Â· Sort my work visa out Â· Do my physio for ITB each week â€“ including rolling it out if have access to foam roller. Â· Make my bed everyday Â· Take a multi-vitamin everyday Â· Pay total $3000 off debt Â· Dress nicely once a week Â· Eat enough protein Here goes! Also randomly yesterday I felt like a change and went from light blonde hair to very dark red! hehehe its strange everyone is doing double takes - and most people are shaking their heads at me going - what have you done?!?
