RogueLibrarian: Space Scoundrel


Recommended Posts

giphy.gif

 

Hello, team! If you are just tuning in:

 

I am a middle-aged librarian. I have a thing for thieves, rogues and assassins. And scoundrels in spaceships. I'm writing my first novel, but I am putting that on hold as a challenge goal this month because I have a presentation coming up in a few weeks that I need to put some focus into. I have a low-rent Ninja Warrior gym eternally under construction in my back yard. I climb, but not as much as I'd like to. I take kickboxing classes. I meditate every day (that habit is solid, so I'm not tracking it this month).

 

Presentation (X/3): Work on presentation three hours per week.

Annual goals (X/2): Work on annual work goals two hours per week (I have several in progress that I'm trying to stay on top of, including a promotion application).

Workouts (X/4): Four workouts per week. I'm focusing on upper body and core goals lately, partly because my knees are problematic but partly because i want to look good without a shirt.

Salad Club (X/2): Make two big-ass salads per week.


During the course of this challenge:

  • Install one additional monkey bar and start doing monkey bar workouts at home.
  • While ancient weapons and hokey religions are no match for a good blaster by one's side, I'll try some staff practice since I was inspired to make one recently.

Additional: Next weekend we are going away for a 4-day anniversary weekend in the mountains, with hiking and ziplines and archery and climbing and stuff. All goal tracking is off during that window.

 

Additional additional: The following weekend, our kickboxing gym is having a Cinco de Mayo adult "field day" with obstacle course and margaritas. (I think this came about because some of us members complained on the Facebook group when they posted about a kids' obstacle event and we got jealous.)

 

I think today's plan is to take an afternoon break to play in the bouldering room. Kickboxing class tomorrow.

I am back from bouldering at the gym. I want to be able to do some overhang climbing; watched a technique video at lunch and tried to be more aware of my form today instead of just blindly clambering around like I usually do. 

 

It wouldn't hurt to do a little on my presentation, but man am I tired and ready for the weekend. Avoiding work on Friday afternoon by looking at Jedi costume tutorials.

Ah, I feel you on this! Maybe you'll tackle some in the morning of a restful weekend?

Hi, gang --

 

I had a good kickboxing class this morning. I pushed myself and tried to do some stuff like double round kicks, and the instructor complimented my form a couple of times.

Nice dude! I don't know anything about kickboxing but double round kicks sound tricky!

 

It's just what it sounds like! You kick the bag twice before putting your foot back down on the floor and completing the move. I definitely could not do it when I started.

I love getting form compliments from knowledgeable folks. Must mean you're doing something right! Great job.

 

Thanks! They often give us "challenge moves" to make things a little harder if we want, and I tried to do as many of those as I could today. Any kind of knee stuff I have trouble with (I think I'm going to get checked out at the doctor soon), but a lot of the upper body stuff and kick/punch moves I really felt like I was acing today. It's good to notice progress.

Conversation we had yesterday:

 

Me: So I'm bidding on an Assassin's Creed coat on eBay to wear to Dragoncon.

 

Ms Rogue (very patient and a little weary):  I know, honey. You're an Assassin. The Templars suck, dear.

 

Me: THE TEMPLARS JUST MAKE ME SO MAD THOUGH THOSE GUYS SUCK
