Since I am re-watching season one of The Witcher, finally watching season two, and listening to an audiobook version of Blood of Elves over the next few weeks, I thought it appropriate to theme this challenge after The Witcher. As has been my trend lately, I will break my challenge goals into two parts: Physical and Mental.

Physical:

For this goal, I am returning to a training plan I followed a few years ago: the Primal Blueprint plan. The university gym is closed this week, so I need a schedule that is flexible and does not require the gym but still asks for strength workouts as well as cardio and HIIT workouts. I will continue to use Darbee as a source for workouts while intentionally choosing workouts that match the Witcher/fantasy/warrior theme. Also, I plan to do most of these workouts outdoors in nature whenever possible. I will link a video below that shows a Witcher workout and explains a few of the reasons why it is always a good idea to train in nature.

 

Monday – Sprint

Tuesday – Lift Heavy Things/Bodyweight Exercises

Wednesday – Move Slowly, Play or Rest

Thursday – HIIT/WOW

Friday – Move Slowly, Play or Rest

Saturday – Lift Heavy Things/Bodyweight Exercises

Sunday – Move Slowly, Play or Rest

 

My diet during this challenge will be similar to the Darebee Modern Hero meal plan: 1/2 plate fruit/berries/veggies/mushrooms/healthy fats, 1/4 plate protein, 1/4 plate healthy carbs.

 

Additional physical goals: morning stretches, "grounding" every morning, cold shower daily, 10,000-12,000 steps M-F

 

I plan to mix this up by lifting heavy objects such as cinderblocks, logs, sledgehammer, etc., doing bodyweight exercises, and using the gym, as well, for dumbbell and kettlebell . I can also use the "Move Slowly, Play, or Rest" days for such things as yoga, tai chi, stretching, etc.

Mental:

For this goal, I am returning to my morning routine of prayer/meditation/scripture reading, as well as breath work. It does not have to be Wim Hof breathing but does need to be some kind of breath work.

  • 0445 wakeup
  • pray/meditate/read scripture
  • at least 5 minutes of breath work

 

The video below is a discussion on how to "train like Geralt" by training in nature and using such things as clubs, the Gada (mace), and kettlebells. It also discusses using hybrid moves and meditation.

Week 0 Day 3 (Tuesday 22 Mar 2022):

 

witcher-witcher3.gif


v.png Daily Dare completed (40 plank rolls)
v.png hiked up a trail in Charleston (the capital city) called Sunrise Carriage Trail (named after the Sunrise mansion at the top). There is so much history in this trail that traces back almost two centuries. I viewed this hike as a sort of meditative pilgrimage, a "holy hike" if I can use that expression. The trail is an out and back that climbs almost 200 feet in less than a mile. As I was ascending the trail, about halfway up I could hear bells from one of the churches in the city across the river from the trail. The moment was so perfectly beautiful that I cried a little.
v.png completed the Daybreak workout (seemed fitting--Sunrise = Daybreak); it was an interesting workout, and it definitely felt good on my back and shoulders

daybreak-workout-intro.jpg

v.png spent several hours cleaning our kitchen and dining area; it felt good to complete a project fully.
v.png sat in contemplative silence while I was home alone, read some scripture, and five minutes of box breathing

I love that meal plan - it is basically the same one that Josh Hillis uses in my Eating Skills course, and it is wonderfully open-ended (eat whatever you like!) while still ensuring a solid balance. 

 

That video and your plan has made me think I ought to renew my relationship with my sledgehammer (it's been a while, I'll have to dust it.)

I went on a few adventurous trail runs and hikes last week. The most memorable was an almost 11 mile run/hike in Kanawha State Forest with my friend Aaron. We ran as much as we good, but honestly some of those trails are so steep I don't see how anyone can run them. It wasn't possible to track distance during the run because there is no cell signal out there, and I do not have a wearable device for tracking runs (*hint hint* if anyone has an old Garmin or similar device they want to get rid of, let me know 😆). But afterwards, I used AllTrails to map our course, and it was just shy of 11 miles. We followed trails that climbed up mountains that reach 1,300+ feet, trails with names like Teaberry Rock, Mossy Rock, Snipe, Alligator Rock, Rattlesnake (which is considered the steepest and most difficult trail there).

 

The next day I took what I referred to as a couple of "recovery" hikes, one at Little Creek Park (my favorite close-by place to run/hike) and Forks of Coal State Natural Area, a newly created park near where the Little Coal and the Big Coal rivers merge to form the Coal River. There are only about 3.5-4 miles of trails here, and it isn't the most peaceful park because it is located near a major highway, but regardless they are nice trails, and it is easy to get some quick elevation. The hike down to the river is nice, as well.

Yes, I definitely use it as a guide rather than try to stick to it faithfully.

Go get it! Mine recently broke (it was old, and I attempted to hit a tire with it, which broke the head of the hammer), so I need to get another one.

Update Fri 8 Apr 2022:

v.png Daily Dare completed: 20 staggered push-ups
v.png slept in but listened to a somatic body scan meditation later while at work and read scripture
x.png no breathing exercise
v.png cold shower (5 minutes)
v.png stood barefoot and shirtless outside with the dogs
v.png Move Slowly/Rest/Play: walked around campus, played with my kids at home

BONUS: I decided to visit some stores during my lunch break, and I found a copy of Erwan Le Corre's book The Practice of Natural Movement at a discount store called Ollie's. It was much less expensive than the lowest online price. As many of you know, I am a big fan of Erwan and have both followed and practiced MovNat exercises for more than ten years now.
