Mortimer's battle logs.


Recommended Posts

Sat:

 

Half Everesting. To get 4424m in elevation in one sitting. My watch bugged out and I lost a couple of loops, and didn't officially get it..but here's the final result of the split run(as earlier stated, watch restarted):

Ummm...

That's a lot of stairs.

Is moving time split as well? If so, you're plain mad. 15 hours of stairs isn't something sane people do...

... neither swinging 40kg cannonball over one's head, so I'm not the one to judge :D 

 

Great achievement for you. And bloody intimidating ;) WOOT!

I absolutely CAN run on caffeine and hatred. But only with a dash of milk.

Challenges' status: 

Spoiler

Not gonna Challenge anymore for now. I took Steve's words and started thinking in days and years. Challenges are just short-term distractions.

Yes moving time is split. I started at 6.37am in the morning, including stopping every 10 loops or so to eat everything in sight on the refreshment bench, finished at like 1 am the following day so..like 19 hours of going up and down stairs. The event was kinda fun because I let myself loose and ate everything I wanted ( chocolates, fruits, pastries - if it was there, I probably tried it). But the aftermath...well I'm kinda screwed atm. Ahahha.

 

I look forward to swinging cannonballs better now I actually can get my hands on cannonballs.

 

Sunday: 

10km of cycling to a scenic Mc Donald's outlet for a big breakfast deluxe

Monday:

1 set of pull ups at 2, other 2 sets one each

2 sets of chin ups at 2, last set at one

 

5 sets of the following:

 

20 divebomber push ups

5 assisted pistol squats on each leg

1 min hollow hold

20 pike push ups

3 dips

Monkey bars to and fro

 

I wasn't feeling up to full weights at gym. My calves and quads are killing me. Did 30 min of runners yoga for recovery.

I did manage to combine both with help of runners group and went in for half everesting.

Tuesday:

 

10x10 1hs @ 3kg sand bottle

10x1 TGU @ 3kg sand bottle

 

yeah definitely not feeling up to things atm...I think this is the worst Doms I've ever gotten. Usually I bounce back fast, like within 48h of the event. Also I was celebrating my Birthday yesterday so I was up late and too late to go to gym in the morning. Just for challenge I tried grabbing the detergent bottle filled with sand from bottom instead of handle. It's doable but the balance is a bit weird...and my knees ache at the part when they contact the ground.

Just get some rest after all this. Killing yourself isn't a best way to progress.

Sat:

 

Recceing a new route for a outdoor adventure race so only managed to get about 7km of running/walking - we were supposed to look for points of interest so running is counterproductive. You go too fast to see points of interests.

 

Sunday:

 

Another 7km of hiking and getting stuck in mud(yep up to my thigh).  Recceing the route round 2. Thank God for people passing me a pole to yank me out, though I probably would have gotten out eventually I think( Already unstuck myself in a muddy river once). But might have lost my running slippers in the process.

Rock climbing side is useful for doing this kind of thing. Replace rocks with grab tree...

 

Though its getting down that is the hard part not going up, due to slippery.

Tuesday:

 

13km at 5.55 min/km pace. Chasing up with an (injured) Energizer bunny. She was nursing an ankle sprain. Even so, she's fast, and has this propensity to get lost. Was more like chasing up to her to make sure she didn't run in the wrong direction since I've been promoted to an officer in the runner group. Can is can...but of course it's tiring. I've done 5:40 pace for 15km. Bloody rough, but doable, at 7am in the morning.

10 X 1 TGU with 11.8kg dumbell

 

Days schedule too erratic to book gym.

 Went to the wrong gym so by the time I got to the right gym, squat rack and bars were taken.

Also, gyms are closed till 18 August due to covid. Again.

Covid restrictions are a pain, I feel you. The word is there will be also some new restrictions here as well. They are to be introduced mid-August - just in the middle of my seaside vacation leave with family. I guess what will they come up with this time. 

I absolutely CAN run on caffeine and hatred. But only with a dash of milk.

I seem to be blessed/cursed with finding Energizer bunnies everywhere...paired with another one, full of pent up energy from a week of no run. 10km speed intervals, there were breaks(1 min, 2 min, 3 min, water break at the end) but in the end I covered 10km at a 5:12min/km pace.
