Yesterday was a good day. I worked out in the morning - 5 rounds of 5 handstand pushups, 10 handstand flutter kicks, and 5 weighted pullups (20#/~9.1kg). I followed that with some hangboarding and some l-sit progressions, and lots of stretching. Altogether it was quite an intense workout, which was nice!

 

In the day we spent a lot of time sorting out boxes of books and one of our bookshelves; still need to finish that today. I also spent a bit of time on art practice, just a rough perspective study in watercolour pencils.

 

After lunch I spent a bit of time on D&D prep - I'm at that awkward point where I'm not sure what to prepare because I don't know what my players are going to do!

 

I made a pork chilli for dinner with leftover roast pork from Sunday, it was lovely and I have leftovers for lunch today.

 

All good goal-wise yesterday, did everything whilst watching High Rollers Curse of Strahd in the evening.

 

Today I have another day off work, but plenty to do around the house, seeing Hopalong for his birthday, and playing D&D (our Rise of the Runelords game) in the evening.

W1D2 - Tuesday
Exercises - 3/3
Stretches - 7/7
Rolling 2/2
Warmup - N/A
Pose Running - Done

 

Yesterday was a good day. Workout in the morning was 7x80m (~89 yard) sprints, supersetted with 7x8 pushups. I followed that with 15 minutes of handstand practice, shown in that video I posted yesterday, and some leg raises. I could really do with a much higher bar for leg raises/toes to bar, as I can't hang with both straight arms and straight legs.

 

I spent some time mowing the lawn, and then did some extra handstand practice and some cartwheels to help me bail out if I need to. After lunch we made dinner! Well, first I did my hip exercises and stretches, then we made dinner.

 

We went over to hopalong's house as it's his birthday. We sat in the front garden at a respectable distance and talked to each other - it was really nice to see him and his family after so many weeks.

 

We then came home, ate our ready-made dinner cold (chicken, olive and pesto pasta), and logged on for D&D. D&D stuff:

Spoiler

After nearly dying last session we rested, and finished exploring the ruins under town where we nearly died. When we got down there we discovered a talking statue that wanted to grant us free wishes, which we obviously declined because a wish is too powerful to be given for free! We explored the rest of the complex and other than killing some hell hounds didn't find much of note.

 

When we returned to the initial room we found the goblins who had worshipping the statue gone (much to our hobgoblin kineticist's annoyance), and the statue was still talking. It explained to us that it had eaten the goblins, and that now it was going to kill us. Then it revealed itself to be a glabrezu that we had failed to kill when we were last down there. This is a glabrezu:

 

latest?cb=20160712130118&path-prefix=it

 

So next session we'll start with a combat against this hideous (and exceptionally dangerous) thing!

 

Our GM let us in on the secret of how this was done - the glabrezu actually polymorphed itself into a beetle, which was climbing on the back of the statue and making the statue appear to talk. It was hoping to give us a corrupted wish and let us leave, as it was weak after our last combat. When we failed to take it up on the offer it decided to regain its strength by eating the goblins instead and to take is on.

 

All goals were completed nice and early. Calories were a bit high thanks to snacks at hopalong's and beer at D&D, but not too over the top. It was a good day.

That's one nasty looking beast!

 

Oddly enough I think we'll be ok - we took on 2 Glabrezu the other week and killed one (the one that escaped being the one we're facing now), as well as a host of other nasty things. We barely survived that fight, but 1 Glabrezu should be ok.

 

Then again knowing our GM all sorts of nasty things might show up next session! Not least because Glabrezu have the power to summon other daemons.

You guys are cute. I should get you in touch with some past players of mine who found themselves somehow storming the Iron Keep and running into its owner, Dispater.

W1D3 - Wednesday
Exercises - 0/3
Stretches - 7/7
Rolling 0/2
Warmup - Done
Pose Running - Done

 

Yesterday was a good day. Started off with a short run of 4 miles, which felt good and pretty quick, and I remembered my glute warmups and to focus on my running pose. I did my stretches straight after my run as I had the time, with the idea I would do my exercises and rolling later. I forgot to do either of those things :(

 

Work was a bit of a struggle; I don't know why but I found it really hard to get stuck into anything (and I'm finding the same today).

 

After work I attempted to make empanadas for the first time ever. I'd never heard of empanadas until @Raxie took me for some last year (thanks Raxie ❤️ ) , so I was really excited to have them for the second time ever!

 

For the pastry I mixed a pound of flour with a teaspoon of sugar and two teaspoons of baking powder. To that I added 60g of diced lard and 60g of diced butter and combined the whole thing into a crumb. Then I added some water until it was the right consistency and left it to sit in the fridge for about an hour.

 

While that was resting I boiled two eggs and set them to the side. I diced an onion and threw it in a frying pan to soften, then added diced green pepper and beef mince until the mince was browned. To that I added paprika and chilli flakes and cooked it through. Once I had taken it off the heat I added raisins, diced green olives, diced boiled egg, and cumin and mixed it all together. This may be the strangest mix of ingredients I've ever had in a pan.

 

I rolled out the pastry, cut it into circles and added a spoonful of the beef mix to each circle. Then I folded them over and crimped the edge together. The recipe, which was supposed to make 12 empanadas, made enough pastry for 20 and enough filling for 30! When I fried them I also discovered that, despite the recipe saying they can be shallow fried, the only way to cook them is to half submerge them in boiling oil.

 

I cooked them in two batches of 10, the first batch going for lunches later in the week and the second warm for tonight's dinner. The leftover filling will make a nice pasta for tonight's dinner.

 

When I took the last of them out of the pan I splashed a bit of the oil on the hob ring, and my hob promptly caught fire. I left the fire to burn itself out, and then served the empanadas with a sprinkle of sugar, and with carrots and broccoli on the side.

 

 

The whole process took about 2 hours, more like 2:45 if you include the time I was waiting for the pastry to rest and not really doing anything. And I have to say, it was totally worth it, they were great!

 

As a consequence not much got done in the way of art or anything else yesterday, but such is life!

I don't fear my boss, I fear my workload if I don't do anything for a few days! Thinking about it that might have been why I was struggling last week, I'd just come off a week off and was trying to catch up!

Week 1 Summary

Exercises - 2/7
Stretches - 3/7
Rolling - 3/7
Warmup - 3/3
Pose Running - 5/5

 

Not the most stellar of results! Basically stuff that was directly linked to running workouts got done, but the main stuff did not. I'm not really sure how best to approach this at the moment, other than just growing up and doing the damn thing!

 

In other news, I had a really nice weekend. Slept in and did a quick 2 mile run on Saturday, then ran our Ranger D&D game. The party locked up some bandits, secured themselves a new base of operations (by hijacking the bandits' base), and headed out to find their friend who has been kidnapped. On their journey through the wilderness they were attacked by an owlbear. Poor thing only got one round before they destroyed it (which is probably good, coz those things hit hard.

 

Sunday I went for my long run, but it's my running deload week so it was only 8 miles. In the afternoon I started some D&D prep, of which I have quite a lot to do (until I knew where the party was going I didn't want to prepare a load of locations they might not use, which means that I now have a big chunk to prepare to get ahead of myself again). In the evening I watched High Rollers D&D and generally chilled out.

Exercises - 0/3
Stretches - 0/7
Rolling 0/2
Warmup - N/A
Pose Running - N/A
 

As you can see I did not do the things yesterday. It was otherwise a pretty good day though.

 

Workout was supposed to be 3-7 rounds of 5 handstand pressups, 10 handstand flutter kicks, 5 weighted pullups. I did 5 rounds, with a 20# (~9.1kg) backpack for the pullups. I would normally go for max rounds, but I slept badly Sunday night and woke up late on Monday morning. Still I got that done, skipped my hangboarding due to time and tiredness, and followed it with some stretching. I also videoed some of the workout for my trainer, and for the gram :P 

 

 

Work was ok, just really trying to catch up on stuff.

 

After work I got to play D&D with @WhiteGhost, @Red1263, @Kestrel Grey, and @Mr_Willes, wonderfully DM'd by @jonfirestar. It was really good fun, and so nice to play 5e instead of running it for a change! I might save talking too much about my character until I've had a few more sessions to feel him out, but if you want to know what happened I can't do better than send you to the writeup on White Ghost's thread.

 

We finished that a bit after 8pm UK time, so I had dinner which WW had lovingly made for me (and was not very happy with me overrunning for). After that I just chilled out, and it at no point occurred to me to do my hip stuff for this challenge or do anything else productive :apathy:

W2D2 - Tuesday
Exercises - 1/3
Stretches - 0/7
Rolling 2/2
Warmup - N/A
Pose Running - Yes, just about

 

Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I worked out - a superset of 10 x 80m (~89yd) sprints and 10 x 10 pushups. I never thought I'd say that 100 pushups would feel fine, even spread over 40 minutes, but they were in fact fine. I followed that with 15 minutes of handstand practice. I'd slept poorly again and wasn't feeling up to adding anything extra, so instead I did my foam rolling for this challenge to set myself up for the day, and also some bonus rolling.

 

Work was ok, still just catching up but I think I'm getting somewhere. Got some drawing in at lunch.

 

After work I cooked dinner - gammon, leek and broccoli pasta bake with cheese sauce and breadcrumbs. It was delicious, and surprisingly low calorie. Ate that in front of High Rollers Curse of Strahd, and then finished my drawing off (remind me to show you guys next week). Then I put away the washing, and eventually got on the floor to do my hip exercises and stretching. I got as far as one exercise before I decided I really couldn't be bothered to do any more, so I watched TV from the floor for a while and then went to bed.

 

I have a theory that I'll be more willing to do stretching in the evening if I do the exercises and rolling during the day, as the stretching is basically laying on the floor watching TV which I'm quite a fan of. To that end I'm going to try and do the other bits during the day, and I'm going to give myself to do the stretching even if I haven't done the exercise.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Hehehe sometimes I do this too. There must be some sort of gain by sitting on the floor instead of a sofa? Some sort of core work to stabilise yourself on the hard floor? If we're really reaching?

I'm more than adequate. Leave Kanye out of this.

Well I was lying on my back :lol: . I guess if you've sat on the sofa for an hour moving to anywhere else is probably good? I dunno, I quite enjoy sitting on the floor anyway for some reason.

W2D3 - Wednesday
Exercises - 3/3
Stretches - 7/7
Rolling 0/2
Warmup - Yes
Pose Running - Yes

 

That's more like it!

 

Yesterday was a good day. Workout in the morning was a 7 mile run, including 4 x 1 mile tempo intervals. It felt good, though I was getting a bit tired towards the end - it's quite a long way before breakfast!

 

Work was ok, still feel like I'm catching up. Got my exercises done at lunch, which helped get stuff out of the way.

 

After work we went straight to the supermarket. Bought a lot of stuff we needed like fruit and veg, and a lot of stuff we didn't need like chocolate and crisps! I've said this before, but if there's one thing I would keep from lockdown it's the supermarkets being empty every time I go - it's lovely.

 

WW had made a soup for dinner, so we ate that when we got in. Then I did the washing up, did my stretches in front of the TV, and went to bed!

Is the theory working? I am having mental blocks of actually getting to the floor to foam roll in the evenings and trying to think of ways around mental blocks. I like standing up hahahaha
