Infinity Moves


Recommended Posts

I'm moving out of the Rebels! Because I feel like this challenge is more focused on movement, which I feel is more assassin-y :P 

Last challenge was a mixed bag - good on the learning and the water, less on the running and the exercise. So, I've been working with my instructor for this month about this, and because his alias is based off the water god (or perhaps it's the other way around), he's going to be putting a focus on getting me to move smoother and stronger. 

I think that most of my habits are linked to when I actually get out of bed, (because I'm currently in my gap year and have no job because I've come back from travelling), so that will be one of my main points. Also, taking advantage of the sunshine while it's around in England!

 

Oh, here's the background to what I'm talking about when I say 'my instructor':

To Infinity,

The Elite. Reconnaissance. Agency. are honoured to send you a letter of interest.

E.R.A. is a non-military led sub-branch of United Nations Security Council Counter Terrorism Unit, dedicated to stopping major acts of destruction before they occur.

We have seen your progress and ambition and have decided that you would be a good candidate for our training program and subsequent employment within our agency.

 

----

 

We have decided that you are qualified to continue with the orientation, though we have decided that you need a period before acceptance into the training program as you are physically unable to complete the necessary requirements.

To aid you in your progress, we shall have a different instructor interview and assess you at the end of five week intervals, until the date of the entrance exam. This is to ensure that you continue to be a suitable candidate and can hold up in our training program and work there onwards.

 

 

 

Also :

Disclaimer - this entire concept is fictional but I shall act like it isn't to trick my brain into thinking that there is a tangible goal I am working towards through this theme. If you want to explore some future ideas I have, there are ramblings is my Battle Log linked in my signature

 

Heres the email that the new instructor sent to me for this next period. He'll be training me for the next seven weeks (this week, the challenge, then the two summer rest weeks), so I'm looking forwards to it!

To Infinity,

I don't care what your previous instructors have thought. I don't care what the future ones think. You have this period to impress me. You seem to have impressed the Director, to the point where they will be providing this time, but they haven't learnt your name yet. You have to be consistently impressive, and continue to be when you get hired. I'm generally considered more lenient, but that's only because I offer better rewards. I also offer worse consequences, and the line from one to the other is more narrow that many others.

I will continue to with the thing of checking in regularly and grading you weekly, but the letters don't count as much as what they bring.

For example, if you perform well in this trial week starting from today, I shall be assigning you to a basic mission in the following four weeks. If not, those four weeks will become less enjoyable to you. And not just due to my instructions, but due to the accountability I will be assigning.

 

Your training with the C25K that you started with Hades will continue. While you fell behind, there's time enough with me that you will be able to maintain it. The ocean is wide and you need both speed and stamina to survive on the earth. Complete it, and you can put £50 towards a microphone. Go ahead and print a picture of one out and stare at it. You can only buy it if you succeed. If you don't, you have to put aside £50 to give away. This can be to your sister or the church or to someone who is in need at that time. Print out this resolution and stare at it. 

 

As for your smaller exercises, they will change. Your daily plank time has increased to 20 seconds, in one go, but instead of a Daily Dare you have to do a set of stretches from GMB, or a yoga routine. Both would be best, and will provide you with extra points towards your reward. For every point you get over the required 14 a week, you get £2 towards buying a new book. For every two points under, you have to donate a book. You can print this one out as well if you'd like.

 

Being Poseidon, I'm also going to keep watch of your water intake. I know that Hades said it was settling into something good now, but I want to continue to monitor this. Your current water bottle is 750 ml. Drink two a day. For every litre in a week above that, you can have 500 ml of something that isn't water or milk. This can be interspersed or used all in one go. For every 500 ml under, you have to pledge to do a night of dishes. Even if you cooked. 

 

Also, I'm going to be adding an extra section - do not eat sugar. You are allowed two exceptions a week. For every meal or snack with sugar above this limit, you have to cook a full meal. 

 

In summary,

  • C25K

  • Stretching & 20 second plank

  • 1.5 liters water

  • <2 sugary foods

 

ttyl,

Poseidon

What up! And I shall try, though I'm generally more of an earth bender myself :P

To Infinity,

Good so far. Reminder that your points are collated at the end of the challenge, so you have totals to use. You look like you're on the path to being good enough to get that mission next week. However, be careful of the diet. I think I'm going to have to modify the pros and cons of that one to ease you into it better. Cold turkey may be a bit too difficult with the amount of temptation that still surrounds you. 

 

I also can't believe that I'm the instructor that has you for the longest period. I know this is because of the flooding in the staff corridor, or maybe it's the animals they found in the swimming pool. Just don't be as much of a punishment as they want you to be, and we'll get along just fine when the school year hits. 

 

sea you later,

Poseidon

To Infinity,

Whether or not I deem you acceptable for the mission next week will be decided on Sunday. However, this week has been good on the tasks I have set for you, but less the learning that you have been doing on the side. While those are not crucial, they have been doing a fine job of convincing people that you actually deserve this time, and that you will deserve a place. Honestly, you deserve it more than those scores of degree laden suit wearing fame seeking idiots who get into our halls, but just because you might be better than them doesn't mean you can get in without a good deal of effort. Some of them grease the way with money, you'll have to use elbow grease.

Urgh, motivational speaking is draining. 

Your exercise is looking good. Your water is great. Your diet is worse than rubbish dumped in the sea and I want to sea improvement. Diet is 80% of the battle, but I think it might be the hardest for you. I'm trying to let you swim in the shallow end first but if you can't, I will just be throwing you and you'll have to do the surviving yourself.

 

good luck swimming,

Poseidon

Asghjk these past few days have been hectic.

Friday was alright, though the weather was rainy and horrible and I ended up not doing a ton and sleeping in. Saturday was a BBQ that started just as the weather cleared up nicely, and it was good evening, though lasted for ages and humdrum I was tired. Then that night was thunder and lighting all night, so didn't manage to grab that much sleep. Apparently 14k lighting strikes across England?? Then Sunday I delivered the sermon - which went really well and I've learnt some good things for next time. That afternoon was more socialising, then sleep didn't happen for some reason. :( Then Monday was a really nice 10-12 mile walk around a lake, with some tasty ice cream at the end. However, it was with 14 other people, and my knee started to hurt by the end of it. Then we all came back to the house and they ended up staying until ~8pm, and I tried to go to sleep early, but the insomnia was still lingering. The weather today is finally really nice, but I spent this morning trying to catch up on sleep debt, and I've got a bit of a headache. 

So the proper update will probably have to wait until Wednesday, just know that I'm here if a tad out the loop.

Mark 2:27, and the necessity of rest. Aka, one of the topics that I really needed to hear preached to me when I was younger.

Sorry. I'm terrible at puns. But I hope you are doing well?
