Skywalker Posted January 3, 2022 Report Share Posted January 3, 2022 It is offically the Year of Taking Action for me. This is pretty much the theme of most of my challenges as one thing that I struggle with is overcoming inertia. I've developed some tools to overcome this in the past - so I've got a good handle on what I can do to build some momentum but I'm declaring this the 'Year of Taking Action'. Just assigning more actionable tasks will only take you so far as time will become the limiting factor so there is a need to prioritise the actions that will get me to where I want to go. Fitness: I know that a big driver for me is an upcoming activity that will prove the incentive. Problem is that 2022 is a big unknown due to the obvious travel restrictions as well as some financial restraints. I do have a hike booked for August (covid willing) which will be my first focus but while it would be optimal to be fitter than I currently am for this hike, I also know that I could do it now - so the incentive isn't as strong. With this in mind I am offically declaring to the NF universe that I will train for a half marathon for the Melbourne Marathon in October - which is well out of my comfort zone (consistently 5k - at a stretch 10k right now). Action: Cardio: 3 x week (mostly running but could include decent hike or anything on the bike) Yoga/Meditation: 3 x week Strength: to be determined once I get back to using the work gym Outdoors: Look for opportunities to develop my outdoor activities and in particular skills. I've got my eye on some volunteer work around track maintenance - which is something I'd love to get into. I've also just purchased the book on the http://www.john.chapman.name/pub-aawt.html which is making it onto my radar. This track involves a lot more navigation skills than previous hikes I've done. Action: Investigate and report on any activities that will extend my skills in this area - navigation, other overnight/multi day hikes and volunteering in this area of my state. Building routine: This is just about prioritising the things that I want to Take Action on and developing some sort of routine to make these begining ideas a basis of what to buld on. Action: Still to be determined - will report back either weekly or at the end of this challenge. A really vague challenge but I figured it was worth getting something down and flesh it out as we go on.
