Saxon goes MediaevalHi all a long time ago I used to be on here under another name. I learned a lot from other people but otherwise achieved little, classic case of collecting underpants. Now I feel like a bit of different person so thought I would come back under a new name and embrace my knightly inner self. from the middle of England, surrounded by castles and history It is hard to not feel a bit like a knight. I reckon knights are the ultimate hero they are strong, tough and dedicated, and also kind and with a good moral compass - not a bad thing to strive for on to the challenge Goal 1 - Eat Like a Knight A little bit like going paleo or 'only eating food your grandma would recognise', But keeping it on theme. sure knights didn't eat perfectly what with beer and cheese but they didn't eat junk food, crisps and cola so for a first step that's good enough. i will eat like a knight every week day with 1 non knightly thing a day (trying to make small changes and not shel, shock myself) Goal 2 - Pull them Home Best way to travel in winter when you have a heavy pack is by sled. Saxon must pull his kit through the blizzard to the nearest town so that he can get warm and rest. In the gym sled push 5 times a session, two sessions a week. Goal 3 - Fight the Darkness been struggling for the longest time to find exercise I enjoy, way back when I used to do western martial arts and really enjoyed it so I'm thinking something similar could be a great way to lose some weight and get active. it isn't really close but there is a kendo group the next town over that I keep thinking of going to and keep bottling out of. Challenge here is to go to a class and give it a try. Goal 4 - Scale the Fortress back in university I used to live rock climbing, now I keep hitting a strange mental block in that I don't want to go back climbing because I know I won't be as good as when I used to go regularly. logically that makes perfect sense - of course I will be rusty. Illogically though my brain doesn't want to handle going back and starting over again. but I need to get past this block to try and fall back in love with something I used to enjoy. Challenge is to go climbing 4 times over the challenge
