Strickland5 themes on!

Well the theme of marathon is wrapping up and well I finish the Oakland Marathon on Sunday.  It was not the fastest I've run one but was not my worse either. 

 

Official time was 5hr55min53sec - yes my wife gave me grief about those 2 seconds!

So a new theme must be brought to the forefront as we leave the theme of marathon behind - or perhaps we continue it... I'm not sure yet, but I know what I'm gonna do for this challenge - so let's get to that!


QUEST 1 - Keep Moving

Marathon is over but that doesn't mean we stop running.  Taking a few days to recover and should be running again soon.  My wife is seriously considering the San Francisco full in July so we'll look into training and such

 

We'll likely keep with 3-midweek run and 1-weekend long run

QUEST 2 - Fruits and Veggies


Food game has gotten kind of junky as we burn so many calories during marathon training - so time to focus up on more greens and fruits! 

QUEST 3 - Read More!

Hope to finish Grave Peril and move into Summer Knight by the end of this challenge

 

QUEST 4 - Monster Hunting

My RPG group has started Monster of the Week with me being the Keeper (aka GM/DM) so I'm gonna focus efforts on that.  Hopefully with mystery prep and after action reports posted here

UPDATE!

Did a 3 miler today and boy are my legs tired.  It was slow jog at a 12m51s pace 

 

I went out for pizza with an acquaintance who's becoming a friend so my veggie / fruit in take was absolutely JUNK ... oops 

 

I've got to go to Dallas tomorrow so I'm hoping to enjoy Grave Peril while on the way there. 

 

We are playing the second part of the inital mystery of our Monster of the Week game tonight!  The Hunters are engaging with a trio of ghouls in a grave yard which should be interesting

Had a work trip to/from Dallas which went alright -- looks like I'm Covid free which is even better.

 

Ran 8 miles yesterday.  Legs were a little unhappy but got into the groove of it after a few miles.  San Francisco Full looks like it will be our next marathon -- need to see if I can find a half marathon to schedule into the plan 

 

Upping the veg during my trip was tough but I tried

 

Reading on a plane was done as was some Monster of the Week prep

We push into the second quarter of 2022 with the Theme of the Present!

 

I hear you saying "But but S5 what does that mean?"

For me Theme of The Present is about being more in the moment, spending less time on my phone, trying to connect with things around me vs though interweb -- though the web is also real just a touch too addicting.

 

 

alright that is all carry on!

Last night's MotW session went well -- the players had a clear path forward and went after the mystery!  We will be rolling over into the next session with this mystery so it'll likely be (4) 2hr sessions which isn't HORRIBLE for our first attempt at MotW

Ran 5 miles this morning - pace was 11m30s which isn't too bad.  I've a feeling we'll be getting faster with another round of marathon training.

9 mile on Saturday was interesting as we got out later than usual -- forgot how much more intense it can be to run in full sun, might have to start running with a hat or something

 

The Present is going alright, definitely tough to put down the black mirror but am trying which means it'll get easier and easier

We knocked out a 3 miler this morning  which was good - 11m30s pace , probably could've run faster but also wanting to make sure we have it in the tank for later in the week runs -- 5 miles tomorrow and 3 on Thursday. 

 

Tried to bake some broccoli rabe last night and FAILED miserably as it tasted mostly burnt ... but still we tried. 

 

Book wise I've swapped to a RPG book (Sci Punk) as Dresden isn't doing it for me currently.  I'm sure I'll return to the urban fantasy Chicago soon just not right yet.

Wednesday's 5 mile run went well ... Thursday's 3 mile ended just short due to my stumbling over a curb and banging up my knee on the sidewalk ... ugh

Nothing broken, save skin, thankfully. Still a touch tender and definitely sore but that'll pass.
