18ck strives for less limping and fewer bizkits


18ck

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Well the last challenge was a bit of a washout. I didn't level up and earned no pointsI. Half way through it I did a half M distance run and knackered my foot and I am still all limpy. This time:

Main challenge goals:

1 Get my foot sorted out - I tried staying in bed for 4 days but that hasn't helped as much as it should have. I need to go and see a physio and I have a nasty feeling even that might not be enough. I'm starting to suspect a stress fracture in one of the bones in my foot

2 Get back to Marathon training - obviously dependent on the first one! If it turns out that I am not able to run then I might change this to a sculling goal instead and put the marathon off till later but that would be sad. My daughter is looking forward to her mile run on the same weekend so we were aiming for some joint training.

3 Cross training - one "thing" per day when I'm not running, whether that's pilates, stretching, bodyweight

4 Portuguese - obviously

5 Shed the pounds I put on over Christmas

I'll allocate points and targets later.

I'm also planning to do some distraction goals to confuse myself:

Try something new - Dry slope skiing, probably

Good luck with your goals, especially No 1!

How annoying, I didn't realize your injury was that bad .. 

 

Good to have you back in any case. And I hear you've been promoted to guild leader while you were away too! :)

 

Will be following you and the gang while I sit alone in my daily battle log space, faffing about and being boring like PhoenixBurning.

Farewell, from the world of tomorrow!

Heh well, I don't know about the promotion but we'll see what Shukar says. And speaking if Shukar...

Farewell from...? I'm missing a cultural reference here, I can feel it...

Yeah, I don't know that it was tough exactly, but I let myself be in a holiday mood - it's not like I had the option of being in training mode, after all. Anyway, glad to be back!

Oh, you are still here. I had a sad feeling you were leaving NF after your last post. Glad to find you here. I hope your foot feels better soon.

:^) it has been relatively OK today but I'm a long way from peak marathon condition!

Thanks again!

Gearing up today. I've not really started properly but I did a pushup maximum challenge (follow up from one of my goals last challenge) and hit 50 which was pleasing. I also booked a physio session for my foot, tried to arrange a ski session but failed (their computer was on the blink) and spent some time discussing @Flyer19 ' s new challenge which you can find here

She was in great form today, doing a yoga session and coming to beat Paula Radcliffe's marathon record.

I also started listening to the audio version of Chrissie Wellington's autobiography "A Life Without Limits*" which is pretty inspiring. So far, it is much more exciting than Scott Jurek's. And who knew Triathletes were so crazy? That bit about weeing on your bike seat and using it to scare away rivals... Ugh!

OK, I've never been less ready for a challenge. Let's flipping do this!

*Spellcheck wanted to change this to "A Life Without Ladies" which seems like a good title for someone's autobiography but I'm not sure whose...

@Nanako Yes, isn't it! I saw it while I was shopping for other people and it appealed to me. As soon as I get through "The Painter of Signs" (*whispers* it's a bit boring) that's next up!

The foot's new to too bad today. Like an idiot, I celebrated by going for a short run with Mrs 18ck and @Flyer19 which was great fun but.... Well, we'll see if I pay for it later! Flyer19 (who some of you may remember as 18ckette) has been for a few runs with Mummy while I've been out if action and the jump in her stamina is impressive! She's definitely in course to finish that mile run in April with a great time!

It's a futurama reference. The guy at the cryogenics facility in the first episode used the phrase "greetings, from the world of tomorrow!" Which happened in a number of episodes, and in one Fry dies and the same guy shows up and says Farewell from instead. That plus having the Internet on my iPad feeling like the future lead to the signature. Tangled trains of thought I have sometimes.

The assassins did an alphabet challenge last year and @Flyer19 and I have been trying to produce a j using a sort of upside down yoga thing and a ball thrown upwards to make the dot.

In my defence, it's quite hard to only have one chin in this sort of situation...

That doesn't sound too good

So far, I've got off to a reasonable start, managing to get the Portuguese books out on the train yesterday, then getting off a load of pushups in place of the ergo session I had to miss because I was delayed at work. The SBSAGFPDâ„¢ is going well too, although I have some way to go...

Oh and I finished that Chrissie Wellington audio book. Good heavens, haven't here triathletes heard of toilets? I must remember to ask German about it next time I see him on here. It's pretty inspiring stuff though, although with hindsight we can see that her admiration for Lance Armstrong was sadly misplaced.

I just wandered through to the kitchen to get a coffee and the radio was playing "Block Rockin' Beats" by the Chemical Brothers, which is one of the tracks in my favourite running mix. I'm pining for the trails!
