Killashandra Posted February 20, 2022 Report Share Posted February 20, 2022 Hail fellow rebels, I'm Killa, and I'm going to be a Crystal Singer. I'm relocating to the planet Ballybran in 6 months, to a cube somewhere near the Milekey ranges where I've heard the best supplies of black crystal are. (Only the best for me.) I haven't taken the entrance exams yet, so I need to work hard before I apply join the Heptite Guild. It's all pretty secretive, but as far as I've learned so far, Crystal singers need to be able to do the following: 1. Hike mountains searching for signs of crystal 2. Carry crates of crystal along mountain paths in gale force winds 3. Carry a crystal cutter on their back whilst carrying heavy crates of crystal in gale force winds So, in order to build these skills, my goals for this challenge are: *5 hill walks per week, minimum of 1km, maximum of 7km, 12:30min/km average pace, +/- 1 minute. *Upper body strength training workout 2 times per week minimum, 4 times per week maximum, to help haul those crates. *Core strength training workout 2 times per week minimum, 4 times per week maximum, for stability in those gale force winds. * Optional leaf blower training if I'm feeling extra tough. To do all this I'll have to give up some of my gaming and reading time, feel the pain of walking in the hot sun and having to put horrid sun screen on my skin, and get over the shame of sucking really badly at pushups. I'll know I'm moving towards my goals when walking hills is easier, I feel stronger, my arms show more definition, and I start wondering what it would be like to hike with a heavy backpack. Thanks for the support, rebellion. I know I can do this with you behind me. K. 9 Quote Link to comment
