Datapirate42 is running for his life.


Recommended Posts

I signed up for one of these last summer, an injury put me out of commission (see the bloody sock), trying again this summer. Since then I've been mostly focusing on my academic life; I was just elected Webmaster/Secretary for Physics Society at my University if you want my Nerd Credentials. Biking to class and for work keeps me active all the time though and I do try to dedicate some time once in a while to exercising for exercising's sake. This passed weekend I just completed my first Half-Marathon in 1:55 which was way better than I was expecting, and I've got Run for your Lives (a Zombie infested 5k) coming up June 23 so this is really going to be more of a 7-1/2 week challenge for me.

Without further ado:

DEX

STA

WIS

CHA

1mile

7 Minutes. Havent timed 1 mile in a little while this might be too easy

or a tad ambitious. Will adjust if its too easy. Will do it anyway if it's too hard.

Oops, shattered with 6:15

+3

3 miles Shattered the previous goal so I'm readjusting to make it 3 miles at 7 minutes each.

Pull Ups

5. Again not sure if ambitious or easy. Same rules apply.

+2

+1

Climb

Once a week. at least once a week at the rock wall at my

University Rec center. If I go home I'll climb other shit

instead... like trees!

Bonus:

Survive Zombocalypse

Its a bit after the challenge is over so I'm not making

it official. But I want to complete Run for your Lives

in about 26 mins. Which sounds slow for a 5k but there

are obstacles involved.

Life goal

Job

Acquire one. I've got nothing to do over the summer,

and no useful work experience for the field I want to enter.

This could well be my easiest or hardest challenge.

Will start sending out Resumes/Harassing professors asap.

At the moment I can do like 1 pull-up and that's mostly because I'm skinny; I haven't really got any semblance of upper body strength right now.

Wisdom is also poorly represented. I am a physics student so in reality that's my most valued trait, but for the Nerd Fitness RPG Challenge that should be fine.

Let me know what you think and give me some ideas for my third goal!

Level 1: April 30-June 11

Run a 7 Minute mile Shattered 6:15

Run 3 7 Minute Miles

Do 5 pull-ups

Climb some shit?

Survive Zombie apocalypse

Thanks! For my third goal I'm thinking of just making it to go climbing at least once a week at the university rec center. I haven't gotten so into it to learn all the lingo yet so I have no idea what I should be looking at as far as climbing grade and stuff like that.

Oops. It seems I accidentally shattered my first goal.

6:15 Mile today at the rec center.

Reassessing, New goal is to run 3 seven minute miles. This was my goal in High School Cross Country that I believe I never quite reached, but it seems I've underestimated myself so far so I'll give it a shot.

Went climbing while I was there as well. They've got a 3 story rock wall and I went up about 4 times. Forearms are dead so I don't feel like typing more right now.

Haven't even tried yet, I'm in the middle of finals so I'm scrambling all over the place right now.

After this weekend I'll actually be able to put more structure into physical stuff instead of having it on the backburner.

In fact I've got a final in 30 minutes so I gotta run, thanks for asking tho!
