Hammi’s Main Quest: Run Painlessly Faster

(July 29- Sept 8)
Missions:

1. RunI am starting my training for my next half marathon- The Area 13.1 September 14th. I need to be more consistent with my running, so this mission is to log 3 runs per week.

 

16-18 Runs= A

13-15 Runs= B

10-12 Runs= C

7-9 Runs= D

0-6 Runs= F

 

Reward: (+2 STA +2 CON)

2. Painlessly. I hate my foam roller. There is no love/hate aspect to this. I need to be better about stretching and rolling to keep my hip/knee/IT band issue at bay per doctor’s orders. Rolling and stretching once per day that I run is key.

 

16-18 Rolls/Stretches= A

13-15 Rolls/Stretches = B

10-12 Rolls/Stretches = C

7-9 Rolls/Stretches = D

0-6 Rolls/Stretches = F

 

Reward: (+2 CHA +2 WIS)

 

3. Faster. Oh, speed- how to get faster? I had to really sit and think back on my training and how I got to my PR (the Turkey Trot 10k that I ran in 59:09) I was lighter, from eating better. I have since gotten away from tracking all my food (it’s what works for me) so for this challenge I will track again in an effort to get a bit lighter. Focus will be on better eating and not a specific weight loss, so scoring will be based on tracking (MyFitnessPal) and accountability (Team Girl Crush). 

 

36-42 days = A

29-35 days = B

22-28 days = C

15-21 days = D

0-14 days = F

 

Reward: (+2 DEX, +1 WIS)

Life Quest:

4. Research. For my life goal I want to start making progress on a dream that Pixie and I have had for a while now. We want to figure out some way to either become a non-profit that raises money for a cause or figure out how to partner with one that does. I am passionate about mental health research and abolition of the stigma surrounding mental health issues, as I have loved ones who struggle with bipolar, depression, and anxiety. I want to spend the next 6 weeks researching nonprofits and how to get our toes in the water without looking like fools.

 

6 study sessions= A

5 study sessions= B

4 study sessions= C

3 study sessions= D

0-2 study sessions= F

 

Reward: (+2 WIS, +2 CON)

 

TRACKING

 

My Story (challenge history): 

1. Wandering across the mountain ranges of the west, I came upon another wood elf, who was running through the tree lined forest. I tried to keep up, because I knew he was waiting for me, but nothing I did would keep me at pace with him. Eventually I slowed, to catch my breath and I lost him. Dejected and worn out, I decided to dedicate my life to keeping up with this other elf...

2. Sneaking through the woods I can feel my senses getting sharper and I begin to wonder if the elf that I'm following, is actually following me...

 

3. Catching my breath I slow my run as I approach a clearing. Did I get lost? I don't know where I am and the elf I had been following has picked up the pace. My mind... it's jumbled up... my thoughts are foggy... I need to focus. I'll stay here for a while, find my center, and then continue on...

4. After pausing in the clearing to refocus, I see what looks like a beaten down path off to my right. Have I been here before? Walking up to the path, it looks familiar, but overgrown. I take out my sword and slowly start hacking away the brush that seems to have grown in over the years. Yes. THIS is my path.

5. Following the path for what seems like a lifetime I suddenly find myself at the tree lined edge of a beautiful meadow. The sun in the sky that is glaring down on me makes me realize something glorious- I have made it through the woods! Over the hill I see the elf that I have been tracking this whole time. He is napping… This is my chance!!!

6. Running up to the elf that I have been following for what seems like forever, I find myself out of breath. As I slow down and approach him, I see him slow down and turn to me. I don't know if he knows that I have been following him, but I can tell by the look in his eye that he's ok with this. As we start to wander the forest together we notice that things aren't quite as bright and cheery as they were months ago... something is wrong...

7. As we continue to approach the edge of the forest we can feel something bearing down on us. Picking up the pace we stay laser focused on getting out of here. The night has grown darker and the forest is eerily quiet. The wood elf and I look at each other and begin to run. I can tell that the time where we have to battle is near and we really need to stay focused...

 

8. Standing on the front line, victorious, I wonder "Now what?" I ponder with wise words of a foreigner who taught my people to stay motivated when they feel like they have arrived. The skills I have learned in the past keep me pushing forward. I move confidently north, to find new lands. And that other pesky elf can come with me…

 

9. On the north side of the valley I see something far away that I can’t take my eyes off of. It almost looks like the mountain side is glistening and the sun is dancing with the peaks. I fall into a trance, staring off into the distance, as if I'm under a spell. A few minutes later I am able to snap out of it, but the lingering desire to see who, or what, had a hold on me begins to push me forward. Is some powerful mage up in the hills, drawing people to him? Or is someone sending out a distress signal, begging for help. All I know is the allure of finding out what is in those hills is forcing me onward.  We have mountains like these back home, but I am far from that place, and out of practice. It will take some time to traverse these mighty giants, but I have no choice but to start…

 

10. From the top of the mountain I can see everything. I have a level of clarity that I've not experienced before and it makes me take notice to my surroundings. I have an epiphany and realize that I need to race home to my family. They have no idea what’s in store! As quickly as I can I need to make my way back down the hill and back to my village…

Thanks all! I forgot to mention- my race PR for a half is currently 2:46. I would like to best 2:30 (11:27 per mile)

 

My current average 5k is 32 min and my current average 10k is 1:10.

 

Maybe as an aside to my tracking I will add current paces... I'm going to think on that...

I don't know if it helps but the physio who did the injury avoidance workshop at my training day said the best way to roll an IT band was not to. He reckoned rolling the muscles if the thigh and calf was better for treating that area and also less painful than the (solid, incompressible) IT band itself. He was one if this maverick types though so I don't know if others would agree.

I have just been reminded by my husband that I had promised I would do another Whole30 with him starting Monday, so apparently there's that, too.
