You Wanna Get Nuts? Let's Get Nuts!!

 

 

 

This might simply be an excuse to do a silly Batman themed challenge!! Why, cause Batman is awesome! No Superhero is quite as nuts as Batman, let's face it!

Nuts! 

 

So this is what I've got to look forward to this challenge cycle:

 

 

The Winter Nuts Challenge! Thanks to @Jarric being inconsiderate to have his birthday on this day both me an @Charlie_Quinn have been roped into this madness. The Nuts Challenge is meant to be one of the hardest winter OCRs in the country. I've got a little experience with Winter OCRs and I'm a little terrified. (In seriousness I'm really looking forward to the race season kicking off in March. Even if we picked one hell of a race to do that with!) 

 

On top of this I've also got one eye on the Half Marathon on March 18 and the Spartan Super on April and the larger goals of RRDW in May and a tiny little mountain Ultra marathon in July (28 miles is totally an ultra :P ) 

 

Though The Streets of Gotham

So with the challenges in mind there is going to be lots of running! 

 

4 Runs per week,

2 quality runs

 

Stretch goala

100 Miles! It's a big round number but this shouldn't be too difficult to hit if I stick to my plan. 

 

Hills! 3000 feet of accent

 

Who Never Misses Leg Day?

My motivation has been low since I burned out at the end of last year and I've not really done any strength work since then. I know that I need to change that. I don't think I'm going to be able to do any kind of structured programming with my race calendar being what it is but so it'll be more along the lines of a WOD type structure. I plan on starting back at the gym on week 1 of the challenge as I finish out my current running plan, which peaks week 0. 

 

Hit the gym 3 days per week. 

 

The Joker!

My arch enemy is food! The simple thing is I've set myself some huge endurance challenges and I need to drop as much weight and body fat as possible to make them easier on my body. 

 

Meal plan. 

Stick to 2600-2800 calories a day. 

I'm going to allow myself 1 variance a week but that does not count if it turns into a binge. 

 

Who Has the Coolest Gadgets!

For the first time in a while I'm gong to tie a reward to this challenge. I am going to use a health bar to represent a 20/80 split of bad and good. If I keep the health bar above zero I succeed. If I beat the challenge I'm going to replace my Fitbit with a new Smart Watch.

I don't know... We are a couple of comic loving nerds who happen to be running a race called the Nut's challenge. And, we both sensible enough to be terrified of it!

Heh, yeah, I've been toying with the idea for a while and had just about made up my mind to get it when I figured I'd tie it into the challenge. I can use all the motivation I can get right now!

I detect a tiny bit of sarcasm or at least self-deprecation. But it's completely unnecessary. 28 miles is legit! And it has mountain in the title.

Oh a hint of sarcasm, for sure. Mostly it's self defense to prevent myself from panicking about what I've gotten myself into. It was a bit of a shock when I learned that my marathon had turned into an Ultra but, not really. They added miles but some of those are in a kayak and I don't think they really count. I'm under no illusions that this is going to be the hardest thing I've done to date.

Well it was really cold and it was a bit of a hard run but i enjoyed it well enough. I can't wait until I get to run in the daylight though.
