  1. This challenge will involve two races and a bunch of obstacles. I'm viewing it as a hurdles race. The last several of my challenges have been following a workout plan described in Training for the New Alpinism. As you might surmise, this book is intended to help climbers train for mountaineering. I have been completing a mix of running, hiking, weighted hill climbs, rock climbing, and strength training activities. In the midst of the last challenge, I realized that over the next year or so I need to accomplish a good number of house projects. For this challenge, I'm going to try to
  2. For those who may not know me, I'm tinkerer. I love to make things for our house, fix cars, and weld. I can figure out how most things work and enjoy trying to fix broken items. Over the last five years, I've been drawn in to mountaineering. In an odd cycle, fitness is what got me into mountaineering and now mountaineering is what motivates me to work out. I enjoy all of the individual elements of mountaineering separately as well: hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, snowshoeing, etc. Intro It's time to get into the hills! For the last few challenges (links in signature), I embarked on a mou
  3. EDIT: Here is my challenge plan. tinkerer continues base building Goal 1: Don't waste my week: Do something active every day I'm traveling for work and Post goals for the challenge I'm writing this slightly after the fact but my goal was to actually use the running shoes I always bring traveling and to keep up my routine despite being in a hotel for most of a week. Goal 2: Aerobic Training Run or hike at a Zone 1 Pace for the following time each week: Week 1: 2:20 or 3:15 - depending on sniffles* Week 2: 3:15 Week 3: 4:10 Week 2: 2:05 Climb a steep hill for 45 or more minutes every week. (
  4. With the new challenge and guild guidelines, I'm shouldering my backpack and heading to the Adventurers for this challenge. For those whom I haven't met, here is a bit of an introduction. I'm tinkerer. I love to make things for our house, fix cars, and weld. I can figure out how most things work and enjoy trying to fix broken items. Over the last five years, I've been drawn in to mountaineering. In an odd cycle, fitness is what got me into mountaineering and now mountaineering is what motivates me to work out.

  5. 31 I'm 31 today. The last year has been really interesting and I'm hoping to continue the fun this next year while still focusing on being a productive, good human being. This is a pretty simply formatted list but I'm excited to start checking things off. I may add some goals if I think of a good one. Fitness Run a 20 minute 5K Run Bloomsday in less than 1:12:00 Run a half-marathon 20 consecutive pullups Outdoor Climb Mt. Rainier Climb a technical rock peak in the local mountains Climb a technical ice/snow peak Two multi-day kayak themed trips Two backpacking trips Marriage Dates - Go on on
  6. Hello! Though I’ve been a loyal Assassin for most challenges, my current mountaineering and fitness goals seem to be better aligned with the Scouts. Hope you folks don’t mind me joining in the fun here. Looking over my last few challenges I’m excited about the progress I’ve made. It’s often hard to observe improvement without the perspective of that review. I was thinking “oh, I’ve just kind of been coasting along†until looking backward. Only a few months ago, I wasn’t able to run at all due to a hamstring injury. Slowly, but surely, that’s recovered. In the last challeng
  7. These are my fingers after rock climbing today. Blood blisters from slipping off of a tiny, sharp hold. Typing isn't really fun at the moment. I'll be out of town for the weekend (hopefully) so I want to get this posted this week. I'm at a bit of a tricky spot where my fitness goals are really to put my training to work. I want to continue working out but I'm really more excited for some activities instead of more workouts. I've been really enjoying tracking things over that last few months and look forward to more of that. The attribute points aren't really doing much for me so I am going
  8. I just returned from visiting a friend in Grand Teton National Park. After seeing all 13,775 feet of grandeur I'm inspired to step up my mountaineering training. My friend also just sent me pictures of climbing Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens within three days of each other. As I can't be left behind it's time to accelerate the training program from the last challenge. I don't have a lot of time, so this isn't highly illustrated with gifs or punctuated with stories. Those are cool but I have to focus on the critical elements or else I burn out. Goal Number One: The best training for climbing is
  9. Crunching the crimson leaves scattered underfoot, the Tinkerer carried his pack from the foothills around the village. Though his face showed signs of a summer's worth of sun and his boots barely surpassed tatters, his gait was confident and quick. The stout rope slung over his pack was obviously well used and the staff in his hand was polished smooth from wear. While I'd love to spend hours on the back story of the Tinkerer and his return to the village after a year's adventures in the mountains my real life adventures and work demand brevity. I hope that someday I'll be able to sit down and
  10. Motivation I climb things. Climbing is hard. I will train. Intro It's been since December of 2012 that I was active on NF. Recently, I've moved to a new location and want to make sure that I build good habits. In general, I am an active and fit person but I miss training for and achieving goals. After re-reading my last challenge (link) I see that I wandered away for two reasons. One reason is that my goal of making new fiends and finding new activities worked. I joined both a running club and a mountaineering club and was swept away with activities. Those led to friendships with people wh
  11. Hello Everyone- I haven't done a challenge in about a year and a half but am planning to join the upcoming Sept 15th round. Previously, I was in the Assassin guild. Here is the question: My training goals are toward two ends: climbing higher mountains, faster and climbing harder rock pitches. These are actually somewhat counter-productive where training too much in one will diminish performance in the other. Ahh, the connundrum! Do I work with the Assassins, the Scouts or the Rangers? I see benefits to all three. My question is really: Where do those of you with your hearts in the alpine
