  2. Last time on as the Vikings Burn....I mean last challenge which had to drop to the wayside as I acclimated to a new schedule and fun Kara moaned as she burrowed deeper into her sleeping furs, trying to hide the light creeping through the window from her eyes, struggling to find a comfortable place to rest. It seemed her sore muscles had sore muscles after the week that had just gone by. Even now, laying in bed and sleeping (or trying to), there was no way to get comfortable with how aching and battered her body was. Closing her eyes to try and snatch a few more hours she let her thoughts
  3. Last month didn't go so well, I let timer get away from me and ended up doing very little to further my goals. Near the end of last challenge I decided to treat my challenge like a 12 round fight, me versus my shadow. Last round went to my shadow, but it was just a warm up. Time to embrace my inner Rocky and turn this fight around. I'm prepping to move, even though I'm not sure when, so my heavy bag has been taken down and my gym membership is canceled. Train Like Thor Time to train like Rocky in Russia. I'm going to do a strength training workout 4-6 days a week. Most of it will
  4. I have been cutting for far too long, it's time to regain my size and strength. So what better theme than the Mightiest of the Avengers, the Strength of Asgard, the Odinson: Thor! The Strength of Thor: Lift thrice weekly: On the Moon's day, Tyr's day and Thor's Day Feasting with the Frost Giants: Consume calories of the count of Three Thousand Four Hundred daily. Say nay to grains and sweet cakes when possible. The Chariot of Thor: Threaten the dwarves into forging a helm worthy of the Son of Odin. Then ride mine chariot to and from Midgard twice weekly: on Odin's day and Frigg
  5. 2016 Year of the viking, Challenge 1 Preparing for the summer raids So now that i have your attention with that grand opening. For me 2016 willl be the year of the viking, what does this mean? Well it means i will run the strongman viking run on all 3 lengths, 7Kms, 13Km and 19Kms and earn my viking torque. http://strongviking.com/ To get this done i need to get in shape for the runs and thus the theme of this challenge will be preparing for the summer raids. Because the runs will be around summer. How does one prepare for the summer raids? There are 3 parts to preparing for the raid
  6. Hello rangers! I am back after being gone/with the Adventurers for the last 2 years. Background I am a former Marine who has always been a bit on the larger side of the scale. When I got out of the corps I stopped running because I could and I hated it anyway. I went to Afghanistan for two years and did nothing but lift and circuit training. This is where I found NF in 2012. Other than not being able to run I was in the best shape since boot camp and was actually comfortable in my own skin (which was a first). So there I was getting ready to leave Afghanistan and stopped working out as I

    So after much debate, I've decided that the rangers are where I should be right now. I started with the rangers then went to the warriors, but my goals are more aligned with the rangers, so here I am! Where I want to get: Although I don't usually do New Year's Resolutions, this year I thought I might so here it goes: This year I want to be more consistent. That's it. Seems simple enough, but it's going to be rough. Last year I made quite a bit of progress, but toward the end of the year I began caring less and therefore my progress halted. I would eat what I wanted when I wanted and had n
  8. The Avenger The Wolf-warrior rushes through the night. He lacks not breath despite of the long run, nor do his limbs ache. He’s trained past those nuisances. He reaches the gates of the fort where he’s been left for dead only to find it blocked by logs and a few big rocks: Remains of a fallen watchtower. It’ would wise to stop and figure out a way around the blockade but the rage has put wings on his feet and fire in his soul. He’s pushed himself up in full battle gear a thousand times; he’s carried chainmail-wearing comrades out of the battlefield. A couple of pebbles and sticks
  9. I am Rab397 and some of you might already know me. The adventurers are my guild for the coming challenges i want work on general strength, endurance and weightloss. Thanks to the doodlies i got this guild recomended and i am looking forward to starting my next challenge here. Why the viking part, well that is easy. There is a strongman run here called the viking run and i want to run it If you have anny questions about me just ask.
  10. Hey guys, I missed the last 6 week challenge by about a week. My progress so far: I've lost 105 lbs since last November. I've gone from a size XXXL shirt to a size L, and a size 48 waist to a size 36-38. I've been taking it pretty easy on my diet and everything for a month or two now and have found that if I lift 3 days a week and eat whatever I want, I maintain my weight. I'm ready to get back to losing weight, although I've found self control and willpower are my biggest problems. I'm hoping that doing the 6 week challenge again and fellow warriors to help keep me accountable will help me
  11. I've said before that I want to be Odinson. Now, granted, I don't have the hair for it. Or the muscles. Or the axe. Or [droppin sum troof on myself here] the dedication to being the strongest version of myself. Really, the hair isn't that big a deal and I can make an axe. So it's down to the muscles and the character. I believe that the pursuit of one can lead me to both. Mr. Rollins was on to something. Let's find some perspective. With that said, here are my goals for the challenge: I will lift three days a week and do cardio (running, stairs, walking, biking) three days a week. Sunda
  12. From the all-knowing Wikipedia: Though I prefer the term Úlfheðinn (ulf-r = 'wolf', heðinn = 'jacket of fur or skin'), I went with "berserker" in the title because it is an accepted English word and doesn’t have funny letters. The letter eth, à (capital) or ð (lower case), is pronounced with a voiced “thâ€, as in “this†and “thoseâ€, and is often transliterated as a “d†or “dhâ€. (And thus ends our language nerd lesson.) For more historical berserker details, please visit the Viking Answer Lady. Currently my favorite literary berserker is Soren, in Tessa Gratton's "
  13. About Swoop Just a simple Viking. Work with IT and do Crossfit. Prefer to have everything neat and simple. Try to make things efficient in both work and personal life. Recently started tracking sleep using Misfit Flash, and also logging food using MyFitnessPal. Hoping this habit will last and that the 6 week challenge helps me do that. I rarely have problems motivating myself to workout, but rather have a problem maintaining my food discipline i'm afraid. I love good food, and often the good food is not good for my belly. Not terrible overweight or anything. Around average and i good shap
  14. Holle enters, quietly, Jedi shields up, so no one will see her. "What are you doing here?" she mutters to herself, looking around nervously. "I've got a really bad feeling about this," the Raven on her shoulder mutters. "Shut up!" she snaps, a little too loudly. People turn to look. "Now look what you've done!" she chastises the bird. He cackles a laugh, almost falling off her shoulder. Feeling him shift, she gently puts her hand up to steady him. Holle sighs, then swallows hard as a dark haired woman glides across the room towards them. In silence, the two watch her close in on them. "Welcome
  15. This Viking explorer goes beserk on the bad habits and gets further in shape. This time there are no excuses. This time it's full-blown war. Will rape and plunder... or... something. The overall goal is still to participate in an adventure race before September 1st, which will be an incredible adventure but also requires a lot in regards to both physical and mental strength. Goal 1: Move An explorer needs to be fast and he needs to find the way through treacherous waters, deep forests and muddy roads. This goal is all about moving the war-machine; by low-intensity means like biking, inl
  16. Hi, I'm Tipwel, a Norse Adventurer. For the last 8 years or so, I was gaining weight every years because of lazyness, staying on my butt and not doing much physical activities. The Fat Evil God of Lazyness as all over my mind and body. Seven weeks ago, I woke up a morning and said to myself, "This is over !". I took my shield, my helmet and my axe and went out of town searching for a way to kill that Evil God. My journey started there. One week later, after wandering with no specific path, I found am awesome hidden community. The Nerd Fitness community. That was a warm welcome. I went to
