I feel like 2020 was rather disorienting for everyone - like it just went and ...

ac16228c31527d64e54cc2ecb11cba6d7209d96d

 

Yeah black eyes ... that's how 2020 felt.     Wait ... not black eyes!!!

Sfsv.gif

 

uh ... oh ... 

400full-.jpg

 

Yes this will be a Supernatural themed challenge ... cause I'm rewatching the whole series ! 

 

Quest 1   - It's not the years, it's the mileage 

tumblr_mkmpxgKIJX1rh5z96o1_500.gifv

 

As always the main focus for me is running (comes with being a scout)

 

Currently we are cruising at 5 and 6 miles during the church of the long run

 

I'm looking to hit double digits on long run by the end of this challenge!

 

Quest 2 - I'm trying to survive.

shirtless-sam-spnfans-2-1441820797.gif?q

Now let's be honest I'm NOT going to look like Sammie at the end of this but gotta start somewhere


Now is the time to stop making excuses and getting back into body weight workouts!

 

GOAL - 3 body weight workouts per week!

 

Quest 3 - Bring me (no) Pie!

Cherry-pie.gif

With the shelter in place going on, the food stuffs have gotten a bit crazy - time to clean things up and stop eating so much pie

 

Looking to limit myself to 1 sweet treat a day and up my fruit / veg intact with 3-4 snacks of them per day.

 

Quest 4 - Learn the Lore

685bd643d0d928fe75b8eba8a927406b.gif

Always keep reading! I've not found a new book yet but I'm on the hunt ... as it were.

 

 

Let's see where the road leads us

I currently have At Home by Bill ByrsonGates of Fire by Steven Pressfield, and LikeWar by PW Singer sitting unread in my kindle  ... apparently getting older means non-fiction becomes interesting

Though I've been going thru a Sword and Sorcery kick of late with The Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories by Fritz Leiber - as I have all 8 books worth. 

Not sure what I'm going wanna read next.

I'M SO FOLLOWING THIS!

“The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personally when they say 'no' — they may not be smart enough to say 'yes.” - Keith Olbermann

Week 0 Day 1 (20/12/27)
giphy.gif

 

Q1
It was a Sunday run day - we did 5 miles as we'd done 6 on Christmas proper 


Q2

No body weight on run days - so this starts on the 28th

 

Q3

Considering we had salads for lunch and dinner - feels like we're off to a good start

 

Q4

Realized I hadn't finished American Nations by Colin Woodard yet so I'm going to work on wrapping it up before moving to new non-fiction.

Excited about your long run goals.  Long runs normally on Sundays?  

 

Saturday or Sunday depending when the previous run was - we're doing every other day runs so that means a pattern of  M-W-F-Su then Tu-Th-Sa

tumblr_inline_mslq8cim3V1qz4rgp.gif

 

Q1
4 mile run into the Panhandle - somehow my new phone paused Runkeeper so no metrics ... slightly annoying and now I'm looking into getting a Garmin again


Q2

Nothing here - cause well we went running.

 

Really need to look for a good every other day routine maybe pop over to DareBee and see what they have

 

Q3

We had a lovely salad for lunch - so woo! No real bad snacks to speak of so that's a win as well.

 

Q4

Reading my ICRPG books as I'm running a game for my wife and some friends.

 

This is her first time playing any RPG and she requested a non-fantasy, so we're playing in the Altered State universe - a cyberpunk game which uses the ICRPG rules.

Hi *waves*

I had an invitation from you to a scout thing but when I click on it I get this. 

Also can't seem to DM you, hence the message here. Sorry its a bit messy. 

3 hours ago, Strickland5 said:

Huh - sent Tanktimus a message without issue ... weird and wild stuff

3 hours ago, theophilus said:

Getting the same message and likewise unable to DM. Must be an issue with the new forum...

 

Actually that is a feature we have been working on that isn't meant for public access yet.  DM issues are unrelated (and hopefully resolved, sounds like?)

 

If anything changes there will be a public announcement, but invites will not work in the meantime.
