Image result for meg movie

 

*Shudders* I'm frighteningly excited to see this movie! Meg is about a megaladon shark that terrorizes the oceans. It's based off the books written by Steve Alten. I've actually read the first three (or in the process. I'm almost done with the 3rd book). They are cheesy, but I love feeding my fear with sharks. Fun fact: sharks scare the crap out of me! Specifically, Great Whites. They also just happen to look like the scariest thing on the planet.

Good thing there's a thick...very thick piece of glass protecting that little girl...or else. So anyways, sharks scare the crap out of me, yet, I'm fascinated with them at the same time. My wife thinks I'm extremely weird because of this. I dunno, I can't help it. I LOVE a good shark movie. Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, The Shallows, 47 Meters Down. Most shark movies are pretty stupid too. Like, Sharknado...all 6 of them. The CGI on the shark(s) is what draws me in, and Sharknado doesn't do it for me, lol.

I digress lol. Ever since I first watched Jaws, I've been terrified of these monstrous fish. So, we're going to have a little fun this challenge and take my increased time spent swimming and turn it into something swanky. Back when the Shallows came out, I actually had a full fledged challenge written out but never ran with it. So, I'm taking elements from that for THIS one :). I'm also combining elements for a Steam game called Depth. You can either play as the shark or as the diver in an arena type setting. If I do well this challenge, I'm making the game purchase my challenge reward :D

 

Goal 1: How Fast is a Great White?

 

Image result for the shallows gif

 

Great White's can get up to speeds of 25 mph in the water (125 mph in Sharknado...) and my goal is to out swim....KIDDING. Not gonna happen. I'd be lucky to get up to 2 mph in the water. My goal is to simple swim 2-3x a week on my off days, which is Tues/Thurs/Sat. The goal is to work on technique, speed and power. I would also like to test my lung capacity and see how long I can hold my breath....and THEN try and beat that time by the end of the challenge!

  • Possible Points: +3 END, +1 DEX

Goal 2: Eat Like a Great White (or Megaladon)

 

Image result for meg movie gif

 

Great Whites are the largest predatory fish on the planet. They. Eat. Alot. That's my goal as well. I want to swim hard and I know that burns a good chunk of calories, which means I'll need to replace them afterwards. I'm sitting between 185-187 right now and want to maintain that weight OR gain weight via muscle by the end of the challenge. Once again, before/after photos would be nice.

Goal 3: What Waits in the Shallows?

I'm writing again. While working on some bigger stories, I wanted to entertain y'all with a shark thriller of my own. It'll be a short story with little installments spread throughout the challenge, so be on the lookout for those ;).

  • Possible Points: +3 CHA

I want to add a 4th goal...but I need to meditate on it. So, I'll just post what I have now and update later on.

 

Goal 4: Swimming is ALL about Pulling

I need a strength goal, so I'm taking a node from @jonfirestar this challenge and doing GtG pull-ups. Let's shoot for a ladder set of 2-3-5 each day and anything else is just extra.

Eh...Sharknado isn't really my schtick when it comes to shark flicks. I like the terrifying ones that make me second guess swimming in the lake and 100% the ocean. I've had nightmares before about being stranded out in the middle of the ocean at night, trying to survive a large, hungry great white, lol. 

 

Glad you're here, Rhia!

Yeah...most of the shark cgi is cheesy say for a few movies. I thought they did a really good job in The Shallows and even 47 Meters Down was decent. The Meg looks tasty and I have high hopes for it to be pretty entertaining. 

 

Swimming is like my second language lol. I always think back to when I was in high school and wished I had tried out for the swim team. I've always been a great swimmer and probably could of got a college scholarship for it had I not let the fear of wearing speedo briefs deter me. For real though. That water is COLD! I'm glad you're back, Echo! It was nice having you around last challenge :). Stay tuned for some swank new tunes!

Before pics will be taken this week and posted for accountability (and for @Sloth the Enduring). Eating was good last night. Had taco bowls with grass fed beef, spring mix salad, tortilla chips, avocado and some yummy organic salsa from Costco. I decided to sleep in this morning so I managed 7+ hours of sleep. I might try and go swimming tonight. I ordered a swim cap that should be here Thursday, which I know will help. The top of my hair is long and it's really annoying to swim and my hair constantly get my face OR get snagged in the goggles. 

 

Heather and the boys took me to work today so they could come eat lunch with me. That's always fun when they come see me at work :D. And tonight, we are making Chicken Molle!! We're following @Tanktimus the Encourager detailed video recipe and SUPER stoked about it!!

 

I'm working on the first part of my shark thriller and will have something posted this weekend, so, be on the lookout there ;). Happy Tuesday, errybody!

Yussss, pull-ups!! Please join me on this :). Have you messed around with negatives at all? Those are a good way to lead up to doing strict, good form pull-ups. 

 

Inorite?   I saw other funnier gifs, but that one was so damn cute!  (And totally something I would do so...)      As for pull ups- before I janked my shoulder learning to water ski (it was so fun, I spent like 2 straight hours doing it.  Yes I got up, and got the hang of it) I was a total pull up princess!    I could do 7!!!   And was working on that crazy invisible stair sorta show off thing.     But you lose pull ups so dang fast and so it's always a process of getting them losing them getting them losing them.

 

My schtick has been to use the lightest resistance band for assistance.  Once I can do ten of those, I know I can do a couple regular.   So then I do regular to max reps, then switch to the band to finish out as many more as I can do.  

 

As for holds and negatives bwuhahaha, the top position is my strongest part of my pull up!  I can hang up there for 30" then take another 15" to lower down!   I need to work on the crappy part for me, which is the low part.  I should probably do scap-pull ups but they are so hard and not fun!

Stop trying to bait each other with these puns.  I mean, just because Wolf is a good chum of ours, doesn't mean we should stuff him to the gills with puns.   I mean, I love puns, so I normally endorsel them, but maybe we should just FINish this off here before it gets out of hand.

Of course! It'll be open to all. We're just figuring out how to keep it fair but still make it competitive. And the PvP thread seems to broken (I've emailed about it)!

Inorite?   I saw other funnier gifs, but that one was so damn cute!  (And totally something I would do so...)      As for pull ups- before I janked my shoulder learning to water ski (it was so fun, I spent like 2 straight hours doing it.  Yes I got up, and got the hang of it) I was a total pull up princess!    I could do 7!!!   And was working on that crazy invisible stair sorta show off thing.     But you lose pull ups so dang fast and so it's always a process of getting them losing them getting them losing them.

 

I 100% agree that you lose pull-up strength really fast. I guess we're janked shoulder buddies ;). Before I busted my shoulder (playing RL Quidditch), I was at 18 strict pull-ups. I miss those days lol. 7 is NO joke either! So you were almost a BarStarz chick?? That's amazing! The invisible stairs is a cool pull-up trick. I actually enjoy watching these guys and gals do crazy stunts on the bar. Very skilled!

My schtick has been to use the lightest resistance band for assistance.  Once I can do ten of those, I know I can do a couple regular.   So then I do regular to max reps, then switch to the band to finish out as many more as I can do.  

 

That's smart. I've never done banded pull-ups before, mainly because I don't have the bigger resistance bands for that.

As for holds and negatives bwuhahaha, the top position is my strongest part of my pull up!  I can hang up there for 30" then take another 15" to lower down!   I need to work on the crappy part for me, which is the low part.  I should probably do scap-pull ups but they are so hard and not fun!

You're a beast if you can comfortable hold the top part like that. I'm like you though; I need to work on scap pull-ups as well.

Yeah, we wouldn't it to get gnashty up in here, now would we? With so many shark puns, it could be a reel feeding frenzy.

What if for every 10 pull-up; strict, chin-up, negative, ring, band assisted, jumping, 10 second hold, it was worth 1 point or something like that? That way, you take away the level of pull-up strength, and just make it a numbers game. Not sure how full-proof that is, but, maybe it could work?

Starpucks are no longer capable of this feat.

Oddly enough- the strength wasn't the trouble for me this time I tried it.  It was the coordination lolololol!
