Hunters Gonna Ranger: The Find-The-Bastard-Who-Stole-The-Hype Mini Challenge


Recommended Posts

Giants are slow, but their stride is large, so pursuit hunting will definitely need to be boosted by a healthy amount of 'get up and go'.

"I knew I was going to have to chase something sooner or later. I'm just glad I don't need to tackle it." Echo smirked, finally ready to test her skills. While she didn't do well at speed, all she needed to do was do her best. 

 

Okay, gonna try and hit a 20 min or less round of three circuits starting Monday. It's doable, as in I have done it once before. I just need motivation, the right music and a clear house (so maybe I will wait to try till Tuesday) so that my focus isn't ruined by other people. Wish me luck. :D

On @Rinna & @Shadri last walk together, a shadowy spirit-thing burst forth from the woods and took over baby doge’s body.  It wrapped Shadri’s legs up and tried to down her like an AT-AT from Star Wars.  It was a dreaded chupacabra!  It yipped and yammered but was unable to communicate.  (Neither of us speak chupacabra). I am since convinced that it wanted to tell us where the hype was.......and the location of the hype-thief to right the wrong it felt in the force.  It left baby doge’s body in a mad dash for freedom.  Baby doge has barely recovered.

Did my 5k yesterday so it counts as my outdoor feat! While going over the river (no woods though) I did not spot the hype, but I think I found someplace where he could be hiding...

Speediness done! Found a Crossfit row intervals workout on the main site that I could do in my globo gym! 25 minutes is definitely the fastest without I've done in ages but it definitely felt like a workout!

I also discovered that #findingthehype is a thing on Instagram! Maybe they k ow where the hype is... [emoji848]

My step counter seems to have malfunctioned a bit yesterday, and it says I didn't move at all after some time around noon.  That's clearly wrong, but I don't know how many steps I actually got.  Given that we did the 27-in-5 at practice last night, however, I'm saying I met my goal for yesterday.  One day down, 6 more to go!  Let's catch these giants.

This week my speed feat is working on agility by either adding in agility work to one of my already-planned workouts.  Or doing a whole separate agility workout if I am feeling super motivated.

Pics! from my outdoor trek near the Yeti...

First the Dutchmen Run Wilderness-... but don't pick on my pic skills; it was flippin cold when I took these pictures

r8gpjd.jpg

 

Now First I don't Expect anyone to BELIEVE me without Proof... I got proof right here!  Genuine Yeti Tracks Leaping into the pines

 

301lfno.jpg

 

The KEY to finding BigFeet seems to be BIg boulders- They LOVE that stuff!

2sb0e2x.jpg

 

 

THE next two pics are from my Adventure.   as I said;  I was mighty confused for a while but then I got on a road and finally oriented.  i mention a Natural Gas line with thick hemlock on both sides.  Voila!  you can still see some of my tracks.  THIS is where to hunt for Bigfoot IMHO

 

2rm1p9w.jpg

 

 

The NEXT Pic is taken during the WORST possible light and won't like that nice under a dull grey day.  Instead Picture- walking forever in the gloom of hemlock and the branches of the empty wood.  THEN i burst out into a huge band of snowcovered grass and a 360 vista from the rim of one hill to the rim of another.... About this the Gibbous Supermoon rises over the mists of a wintry coastal storm into a clearer patch of sky; and all the white covered snow Glows...

The Wide open Electric line-Beautiful in the right light!

Did I say that this is an arduous 3mile walk that I made Four times in a little more than a week?

 

Great efforts made grand vistas So much grander.

THAT is Pennsylvania in the winter!  beautiful. brutal. and definitely "Big" enough for bigfoot too hide out in.

 

I guess though we're chasing giants now.

hmmm.  I'll wait longer: I want to race to them JUST as you guys are beating the Giant Juice out of him.

I am proud to say I kicked the speed feat's ass today. I feel like I need to get myself a prize or someting.

 

My goal was 3 circuits in less than 20 min - the 3 circuits (specifics in my daily log) + warm up took a little over 16 min, and adding the quick stretching I do took it up to 19 and a half-ish min. So I made it whichever way you count it. I thought I would have to take it easy and count just the circuits because I didn't exercise over the holidays but my form was better and I actually feel only a little bit tired.

 

These giants won't know what hit them. :D

Day 2 of 6 is done, and then some. We only had 7 people on our team for scrimmage last night, so I definitely got my steps in! Today I will get day 3 done no problem as well (coaching jr derby and then going to an open scrimmage). The rest of the week may be a little harder, since I won't have any skating to help me, but I'm not letting those giants get away from us!
