Raptron: Out of Office


raptron

Recommended Posts

Hey crew! Your friendly neighborhood back flipper and weight ripper checking in. 
 
This month is very busy for me! I'll be out a bunch for the first two weeks of this challenge cycle but would feel completely adrift without my roots in my challenge here with the Assassins. I run with my own modified challenge time-tables sometimes, so that will be happening again here. I'll be going for 8/14 - 9/10, but obviously checking in here during zero week. :) Given my large absence during the challenge, @Grumble recommended a tourist themed challenge. I am embracing it, fully. 
 
Big things this challenge:
8/11 - 8/13: Tennessee for gymnastics camp
8//17 - 8/24: WA and OR for the total eclipse, visiting in-laws, checking out a couple of national parks, meeting up with my parents, etc.
9/1: Lady Gaga! (Not really important for the challenge time table, but I am just excited hahaha)
9/3-9/4: Falmouth, MA
9/10: 10K race in Salem, MA
 
My usual travel mode:
261ac8241c2491b243b68287d8185724.png
 
But for this challenge, I'll embrace the standard tourist look:
 
 
Socks-and-sandals-006.jpg
Equip Slot 1: Socks with Sandals
--> Preventative ankle PT exercises 3x per week

 

fanny-pack-gif-3.gif?resize=500,281
Equip Slot 2: Fanny Pack 

--> Veggies 14x week again 
 
300px-Miura-ori.gif
Equip Slot 3: Crumpled Fold-Up Map
--> Walking/hiking 5 miles average/day over the course of the challenge 
--> Run 6x over the challenge (not including the 10K race on Sept. 10)

Equip Slot 4:  Oversized, Rarely Used, Expensive Camera
--> Include a photo with each day's update! 
--> Cut my new floor music for the 2018 gymnastics season

I just googled for "alot" and eventually everything about ur NF profile makes sense haha :) I thought it was just because you always do alot of things, like "very Assassin!" "much Warrior!"

 

What are you thinking for the floor music?

Hahah! Yes, my icon is the alot of beer if that didn't come fully across in the googling. ;)

 

It is going to be a medley of a lot of things! I need to cut out all the samples I like and see if/how I can fit them together coherently. Expect more throwbacks but not as consistently themed as the Top Gun medley.

Day 0.1

Zero weeeek, zero weeek, what do we do during zero weeek? Normal life! I went to gymnastics practice Monday night. Did some uneven bars, jumps and leaps on floor, and then plenty of balance beam. Still working on nailing those front walkovers on high beam -- I tend to get a bit loose in my back/core once I pick up my hands which means I get wobbly despite the fact that they are completely over the beam! Maybe I'll play with super controlled limbers and things as a drill for that. It was my last practice before gymnastics camp this weekend, so many of us were chatting about what we want to work on at the camp. :)

 

SO. Lifting tonight, lifting tomorrow, run on Thursday. Gymnastics camp Friday - Sunday! Wooo~

Day 0.2

How do you say... boo-yah?

e4e284ac3c888e602ac7215eb4462b51.png

Bench 135x3 was still shaky so I'll repeat it again for the last set of 3s, but squatting 240x3 was NOT SO BAAAD. I'm excited. Unfortunately, with all the travel, my workout schedule will get wonky. I'll be able to finish up this week (11) by next Tuesday, but then I'm probably out of the gym for at least a week. I might be able to find a place to lift once or twice while we are out but I am not optimistic. 

 

Picked up some groceries, made tacos for dinner, played a bit of Overwatch, and went to bed. :)

Had no idea what your avatar was for the longest time.

I think I caught it right away, but it might be because I have an alot at home.
