Parkour gal, total computer nerd


Recommended Posts

This is my second challange! However, part way through my first my iPad wouldn't let me log on :(  Hopefully it's better now. I do figure skating twice a week. Parkour is so fun :D I would also like to get back into body weight exercises, and maybe try out some jogging. I know I started late, hopefully I will be on time next time xD I chose to do parkour because it combines everything I wanted to do but couldn't, however it is a high impact sport and I have dodgy knees. Not the best idea?

I am very much an assassin. For one, the name just calls to me. Then, obviously parkour. However, I really would like to improve my strength. I am pretty flexible already, especially with ice skating, however I still would like to improve. And just about anything else.

 

 

Main Quest

 

Improve parkour - I love parkour/freerunning, however I haven't been doing it for very long, and YouTube is my best friend on this goal.

 

 

Sub-Quests

 

Fittness

1) Find the time to go to the park once before the challange ends for the sole purpose of practicing parkour. When at my caravan, go every day while the weather is ok. (Don't want no dying now, do we?) 

 

Fittness

2) Complete a body weight workout (I am currently using this one - https://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/beginner-body-weight-workout-burn-fat-build-muscle/ ) at least three times a week (weekend off of needed). Aim for the circuit completed 3 or 4 times by the end.

 

Diet

3) keep up the no refined sugar at all in school, and in no more than a week have no other times at all (honey instead!).

 

Level Up Your Life

4) Get a -minimum- of 8 1/2 hours of sleep a day, better having 10 hours. With the holiday coming up, this shouldn't be too hard.

 

 

(For future, if at least some of these tasks are completed, include for fittness specific parkour moves I would like to improve on. Perhaps specific stretches as well?)

1) Well, I didn't exactly go to the park yesterday, but I found a really good spot(s) on my way to piano. (As in, I left an hour early so I could scout and then practice parkour before having to go to piano). I think I am going to do that every week, as long as it is light.

 

2) I did one just before creating this post, so I couldn't do one yesterday, but I will do one today. Now that I'm thinking about it, it would probably be a good idea to do it in the morning before shower and school. However, that means less sleep time...solution: go to bed sooner xD

 

3) Nothing in school, a piece of caramel shortbread after eating. When school finishes, none at all (naked bars are ok). 

 

4) Urgh didn't quite make this one, I got 8 hours though. Lost track of time. Need to make sure I do. But the holidays are coming up :D

Welcome back to NF!

 

One thing you're not mentioning, so I wonder about - how much fun are you having practicing parkour?  What sorts of exercises are you practicing?

Next time, if at least some of these are successful, I will focus more on parkour and the moves, maybe doing levels to go through. It is really fun to practise! I found a railing going down sone stairs with some straight parts, and practised lazy vault, a bit of kong vault, and a mix of a speed and turn vault. I need to work on my left side, because going to the right is easier for me.

 

 

1) Change of plans, we aren't going to the caravan as much (if at all) as we thought, so I will have to make do here. If we do not go, this challange is basically complete, since it was to go once. However, now it is to go as much as possible. And I am actually really excited because hopefully I can go to a parkour camp/lesson, lasting 4 hours, near the end of the holiday. :D My first actual lesson.

 

2) I am so failing at this, I just forget, when I don't forget I don't have the time, and when I remember and have time I can't be bothered. I really need some more discipline. I did it for quite a while before, but it fizzeled out. 

 

3) Yep, holidays now, so I had no sugar today. No refined sugar indefinitely, or until I have no cravings after eating some. As in, I am able to have a square of chocolate every month or so and no want any more. 

 

4) So far I have basically done this, however I have had to get up in the mornings so it is not near my preferred 10 hours

hi there and welcome to the challenge! (see I'm late too :) )

 

for the bodyweight exercises, the only thing that gets me to do regular on-my-own exercise is to schedule it in like it's a class or an appointment. can you take a look at your calendar and make a space for this? This is also why I exercise first thing in the morning, because I am TERRIBLE at doing exercises after lunchtime.

How has your progress been so far?

 

Now that you’re actively practicing parkour, you’re going to develop an ‘eye’ for where you can actually practice it, just widen your gaze and you’ll find all sorts of places!

Nice :D, I've been trying to start parkour again, I didn't train parkour for years now too, do you train alone or with friends? If alone, how do you find the motivation..? 

I do it alone :) I have some friends that go to the place with me, but they just want to have fun (i.e jump in the foam) rather than do actual parkour. Motivation? It is totally awesome and fun. I also started doing it in daily things, like on the way to piano lesson. Being honest, I haven't done that much, but I hope I can keep motivated! Keep trying :)

This is so true! I'm walking along with my family, and suddenly i see a railing and i'm like "bye". Hmm, yes well I must have gotten stronger considering how much i ached after going to the actual center. My vaults have also improved. Not amazing, but on the side vault i always used to sit on my hand (ik right? xD ), twist it and hurt it. Now i can do it better. Just need to work on both sides.

1) This one is basically complete for now. But I am going to go to practise every week before piano after the holidays!

 

2) I am going to have a go at that schedule. I need more strength for parkour. Yes, I will develop it (hopefully, hehe), but this will help 

 

3) Okok well, I had an ice cream today but apart from that i had none! :D I feel like i can control myself more now, so if I have a little now and again it is ok. Once a month? I resisted some lovely chocolate caramel shortbread in the café multiple times, yay!

 

4) Yep, all good. Some days is no wake up time, sometimes i have activities. Still, at least 8 1/2 hours. I might have amnesia, so this would be quite important. Apparently too much sleep could make more tired? Not sure. Its better than too little

Like you just run to everyplace you want to go to doing vaults and wall runs along the way?

 

What level are you in parkour btw? what vaults can you do?

Yep :D thats what I do on the way to Piano. It's great. There is also a center in Cardiff which is good. Fluidity Freerun? 

My level...err not high. Let's leave it at that XD Well, I have only done things from Youtube. I can do side, safety, kong, speed, lazy (think its the same/similar to side?), and there are a few others i don't know the name, like a cartwheel with one hand on a small block and the other on the ground. These all depend on the height of the wall! Oh well, gonna keep trying 

(Alsooo, sorry for the super late reply, i haven't been on for a while)
