There were many requests for a Thundercats theme as I continue Rolling through Awesome cartoon Franchises of the 80’s. Therefore, we come to the ThunderCats. I had a Sword of Omens toy as a child and loved the series. And so we come now to my goals, which should be pretty familiar by now. Panthro: Strength. 10 lift days. Since we are going to a format with a full four weeks I’m adding a lift day. Panthro was the tech guy, he designed the weapons and vehicles, and was also the physically strongest and most skilled warrior. I enjoyed watching him go from happy tech guy to by-the-code Warrior when stuff started to get real. Cheetara: Speed. 10 Run days. Cheetara was by far the fastest Thundercat. In kindergarten we were all convinced if we ran with our hands flat like she did it would help us run faster. This can be either a running session on Runkeeper or a Parkour Lesson. Got an early report on the tax returns and I should get enough to purchase a package of parkour lessons once it comes in. Snarf: Food. Eat paleo with no more than three variances/week. Snarf was Lion-O’s baby sitter, and never fully accepted that Lion-O was as grown as he was. I always liked his character and enjoyed his scenes. If I remember correctly, he was also the ThunderCats’ chef, which makes him the perfect inspiration for this goal. I know he wasn’t one of the main warrior characters, but I never liked WilyKat and WilyKit to this day I don’t know which was the boy and which was the girl. Lion-O: Domestic Rangering. Clean bathroom, kitchen, mop, vacuum, take out trash, do laundry 1x per week. Lion-O, Lord of the ThunderCats, was a boy when they fled Thundera for third earth. Due to a flaw in his cryogenic Chamber, Lion-O’s body matured to fully-grown while his mind remained a juvenile. He was incredibly strong, and is the inspiration for the strength goal. He had not only his own strength, but the shield-claw and the sword of Omens, with the Eye of Thundera in the hilt. I’m sticking with the leader in the Domestic Rangering theme here. Tygra: Mobility. Any combination of Foam Rolling and an NF mobility Session for a total of 3 times a week. Tygra was the mystic of the group, and had the most agility. He could use his weird whip thing to make a balance line and could easily get across. He could also make himself invisible. I haven’t changed up any of the goals from last time, they are set up so that consistency will bring about the progression I want in my fitness. Thundercats! HO!
So I have noticed that I do the best in challenges if I theme them with nostalgia from my childhood. So: APRIL 2016 -- Thundercats! HOOOOOOOOO! Make a Workout Schedule -- Stick to it Swim -- MTWR 45 to 90 Minutes -- Good Effort For thinking about going swimming FSaSu... +1 Strength Training -- Add a Push Up, Pull Up Progression, and a Squat to what you can do each day Make Sure to Stretch throughout the day (Swim Alternates, just in case of storms or if serendipitous times occur: SCUBA diving or Kayaking, Archery, Disc Golf, Hiking.... wow I need ideas for fun activities to do while it is lightening) Whip that Mountain Dew Addiction -- Success if no Mountain Dew is consumed through challenge (pass/fail!) Chuck the Stress -- Panthro Says Relax Read, Listen to Music, Write, Color -- Anything that turns my brain off from the incessant worry mode for 30-minutes Keep Spanish Lessons in Sight I will finish the Duplingo Tree! Bonus: Practice not being clumsy with random balance drills
Su cuy'gar "nerd" vods. Ehehehe...(crickets) ANYWAY! Hey nerds, it's your pal the King of Lame and I was curious if there were any nerds in the area of Tacoma Washington that would want to meet up one weekend and chill, or do random workout-like activities you know. I'm hoping there are some around here and I'm not the only one.(cue A Perfect Circle) If you're in the area, drop a line on here and we can schedule in a way to fit everyone's best chance to meet up!
Mission: Catch Cheetara I happen to have come of age to start noticing girls at exactly the time that Thundercats was a big deal, and so this fast and strong gal was probably my first (non-human) crush. She can hit thirty seconds to the mile, but only for a little while, so I have a chance if I can go the distance. I am signing up for the Scenic City Trail Half Marathon on 26 April 2014. I have been following a very conservative race training plan based on this one (warning PDF file). It started very low-mileage for me, but I am choosing slow-but-steady this time because I have developed chronic-use injuries while training for races in the past. 1. I will run following the training plan 3x/week and take care of my body. Small deviations outside of my control will be tolerated. I will do self-care with stretching and rolling as necessary. 2. I will do resistance training 3x/week. My current plan is a warm-up and then at least three circuit sets: a. Warm up i. Windmills ii. Neck rolls iii. Burpees b. Bodyweight Squats -- getting better form before I load weight again c. Pushups progression. Current plan: i. Diamond (can already do 3x15 with good form) ii. One arm extended, holding dumbbell (trying to get good form) iii. One arm extended, hand up on a bench (possible next step) d. Chin ups and variations e. One arm dumbbell snatch (or snatch and press) f. Single-leg BW glute bridges or split stance dumbbell deadlift 3. I will eat to the plan: six days regular, no more than one day for treats, all mostly following the "paleo" principles in Lean Ape Living. I will count impulsive eating in servings per day to avoid binging on failure. Treat day will be pre-planned to fall on a heavy exercise day, preferably one with a long run and resistance training. Treat day will not be an excuse to go crazy once per week. Six days per week I will: a. Avoid added sugar, corn syrup, grains (corn, wheat, rice), potatoes, liquid calories, and snacks. Minimize if not eliminate. b. Moderate dairy (some cheese, some yogurt), moderate fruit (dried and fresh). c. Maximize whole vegetables (like spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, carrots, onions, green beans, peas).
