GoodDoug Does All The Things

The old Ranger Guild Leader was waiting with the other representatives from the other guilds. Each was a high ranking member of their own guilds and leaders in the Rebellion. They were all waiting for the delegation from the Orc tribe to arrive. The Ranger knew that GoodDoug would be with them, from the stories that made it to the rebellion, somehow the Half-Ogre had managed to impress the orc tribe.

 

This pudgy Ranger that had only a few months ago come out of boot camp was going to help the Rebellion push the Enemy back.

 

The orc delegation arrived with the two Ranger escorts, GoodDoug and Lodrok. Lodrok made the introductions, but the Ranger guild leader was watching GoodDoug. The half-ogre looked leaner and stronger. He moved with more surety among the guild leaders and the orcs than the guild leader would have expected from him. This half-ogre Ranger might be what the Rebellion needed right now, the guilds respected him and the orcs trusted him. The Ranger guild leader remembered back to when they were a Ranger out in the field. The orcs were terrible to fight against, but they had found common cause before.

After the introductions, the guild leader spoke with Lodrok, confirming the stories about their time with the orcs and assessing what they could expect from the orcs. GoodDoug was off helping the orcs get situated with the guilds they would be working with. It was good for the half-ogre to be getting time working with the other guilds, the old Ranger leader was thinking ahead to the coming weeks. This half-ogre in their charge was about to get really busy.

Prepare:

  • Juggling every day
  • Food tracking every day
  •  protein greater than 100g every day

These are practices that have become habits and I want to maintain them as much as I can 

 

Practice:

  • Duolingo every day
  • Write 3 times a week
  • Get 4 more puzzle boxes done

I need creativity in my life and these are some good stimulation. Writing doesn't have to be much, just some basic free form writing is enough here.

 

Push:

  • Workout MWF (which workouts depends which weeks)
  • Active recovery TTh 

I'll outline later what I am doing, but each week is a different guild. The active recovery will be the active recovery from GMB Elements,

 

Play:

  • Saturdays are for doing something active that is fun.

I want to incorporate soccer, surfing, hiking, and whatever into my "routine" and will try and do one day a week of something interesting that is also active.

 

Ponder:

  • Stay active on the forums and reach out to the other guilds
  • Meditate on the bus
  • Sundays will be for planning workouts for the next week.


Each week I will "join" a different guild. The first week will be the Druids, as I have to finish my GMB Elements course and I have one week after this one. I will be working on mobility and control.
The second week I was going to join the scouts and do some running on the workout days. The third week will be lifting with the warriors and the fourth week will be with the assassins working on handstands and rings. The last week will be the Ranger week where I will try and do a little of everything, because that is what Rangers do.

The last three challenges I have said I wanted to get back into running and lifting... this is a good excuse to make sure I shove that back into my life by scheduling it. I found last challenge that having a prescriptive workout routine was very helpful to me. I will try to spend Sundays coming up with a plan for the week, though the first two weeks will be simple.

 

The Rebellion has been on its heels for a while, now it is time to strike back, and so I will be doing what I can to push on all fronts and help the other guilds.

HAH! The best surf is when the water is cold... that is what wetsuits are for. Seriously, where we are, the surf is best in the winter and kinda dull in the summer. So June/July is pretty flat, and December/January (when it isn't stormy) is banging.

Hiiii. Looks like you're doing ALL the things! I endorse meditation, lifting, and writing. I'm also here for the juggling. Can you do cool stuff, like juggling five burning toffee apples at once?

What are you Duolingo-ing? And what are puzzle boxes?

I did about 3 months of Italian prior to our trip there, and just never returned to it :apathy:

Thnx!

I am doing French. I took it in high school for one year and my daughter is in her third year of French now in high school. I would like to go there again, and so I decided to Duolingo it.

The puzzle boxes are cool little wooden boxes.

Here is one I made for my son:

No time for a story today, I'll try and do it tomorrow.

 

Did my Elements today and I am pleased at how I have progressed. I could do better, but I am better than I was so win. Juggling went well, again, I am pleased with how far I have come. The trick I started learning a couple of challenges ago has now become the last part of my warm-up.... but now I have to start a new trick and it is a bit daunting.

 

Weekend was very busy, spent Saturday cleaning and doing little projects (and two more boxes). Sunday was spent at a soccer tournament (with lots of wind and a bit of smoke from the fires many many miles away) My youngest daughter's team got first place in the tournament after some really hard fought battles... so as tired as I am, she is even more tired, but happy to have a first place medal.

 

Ready for day two tomorrow!

If I DM again, I will definitely steal that idea!

That box was made from Douglas fir, finished with shellac. It is fine, but the ones I am making now are from redwood with a tung oil finish and they look a little better. I have some wood from an apple tree we had to cut down last year and I might be able to make at least one box from that. I think it would look really fancy.

The young druid sighed loudly, this half-ogre was helpful, but also got in the way a lot.

"Maybe we could use you over here instead?"

GoodDoug nodded, he knew he was cramping their style a bit. The druids were good at moving slowly and steadily and he was used to moving a bit faster. He was learning so much from them and his body felt great with the exercises they had taught him.

He had learned much of the druidic traditions from the orcs, but the guild had opened his eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. He knew he was a Ranger at heart, but he would take these practices and spells he was learning with him for the rest of his journeys with the guilds. 

This group was tasked with liberating a magical grove from the enemy. Taking this meant that they would be better positioned to support the rest of the guilds. The healing and protective magic of the grove could be used as the other guilds pushed forwards, taking back what the enemy had taken from them. The scouts had already given them intel on the site. It was guarded by a pair of chimera, nightmarish creatures with three different heads and magical abilities that messed with ones psyche. The druids were a good group for this task and GoodDoug was there as the muscle.

Currently, the druids were weaving protective spells and spells of concealment, the fight to take the grove would come soon.

 

Not much time for a proper narrative, but I want to move the plot along. I am using the high concept of "taking back what you had" in that in real life I am getting back into the best shape of my life... while adding to it in choice ways. I finally feel like I can get to where I was last time I was here in the forums. I always knew it was possible (I did it once, I can do it again!) but feeling it is different than knowing it.

 

So far I am on track, but that is easy to do in the first week. It is the final week of GMB Elements, and it has a push sequence every day... last few weeks it has been push sequence every other day and that was tough... this is the same push sequences of the past two weeks, but just done one every day. Today was the second day and it is tiring, I had gotten used to the active rest days. But, I think this will be a good benchmark for me. I hope to repeat this same week once during the next challenge and see if it feels any easier.

Food has been okay, I am meeting my protein goals pretty much every day, so I feel good about that. I feel like it is helping me keep my energy up to have this protein goal.

 

Work is a bit of a bear right now. I have two "Top Priority" things I am working on, one of which I am DRI for so that is a bit of pressure. But it falls in with my theme of DO ALL THE THINGS so I am trying to roll with it.

Thnx for all of your kind words in my thread, I do appreciate it.
