Maledictus: You don't have to be Nuts to post here, but there is a strong statistical correlation


Maledictus

Recommended Posts

STOOF!

 

 

Goal 1: When I say run, run. (pause) RUN! (+4 DEX)
 
I want to do at least a 5k a week and a set of sprints.  This is more for time than distance.  Use the 5ks to improve running technique.
 
Grade: Lose a grade per week without a full set of runs skipped (1 or 2, taking genuine factors into account).
 
Goal 2: Nuts?  How Ironic  (+5 STA)
 
So the Nuts challenge is this weekend.  Rather than just do 1 lap, or 2 laps, or even 3 laps, I've decided to go all out and start with the full 4 laps.  Plus a run around the day before with a mate.  That's 35km of insanity in one weekend.
 
I cannot wait.
 
I may not finish it all (they turf you off after four hours if you aren't on your 4th lap) but I'm going to enjoy trying :).
 
There's a 12k I've booked in at the end of the month http://www.ironrun.co.uk/ to prevent a 6 week gap before the next run.
 
Goal 3: Stay on Target (+2 WIS, +2 CON)
 
This is about sticking to my meal plan.  I stuck to the plan last challenge but a combination of a different workout and extra calories/carbs on workout days I allowed myself mean I didn't see the improvements I wanted.  Once Nuts is out the way I'm going 4 weeks strict adherence to the plan as published and seeing what difference that makes.
 
Side quest:  Career Development (+3 CHA).
 
I'm going to use a requirement my wife has (plus a couple of things the gym owner needs) to drive skills/learning exercises for the next couple of weeks.  So I plan on having a couple of web sites/databases/iphone apps churned out in the next six weeks.

So remember that interview I bombed last challenge?  The CTO of the place emailed and said "funny thing, don't know what that clown was thinking and incidentally he isn't here any more.  But we reckon you'd be a better fit anyway"

 

erm, what?

 

So I'm going to see what's happening.  It's one of those things where it will be mental hours and lots of stress for no more money than I currently earn.  But a hell of a lot more fun.  Plus the CTO sounds insane, which always bodes well (seriously, the last 3 jobs I've enjoyed have been because someone in senior management came across as seriously unhinged at the interview and I figured if they got away with it, I'd fit right in ...).

 

Saturday turned into a "snatch technique" session.  Which was good but also different.

 

Sunday was running kids all around so only managed to squeeze in a 5k and no lifting.  Tonight my newly returned boss pitched up with changes to the spec @ 17:20.  Grr.  So I could either work late and we can test it for the next two days or do it tomorrow and we end up a week late.  I hate being dedicated sometimes.

 

On the plus side, I got the previously mentioned email at the end of the day, so I'm surprisingly mellow about it.

Sounds like an interesting job opportunity...insane bosses are often the best!

That does sound like an interesting opportunity.

Hello Tough Nuts

 

Thank you for entering The Winter Nuts Challenge. This is going to be a very muddy mud run.

 

Please make sure you find your race number for check-in on the day (you will check-in with your race number and not your order number).

 

 

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

 

 

Did a 5k run first thing this morning and then an hour's Boot Camp.

 

Phone interview in a couple of hours and then a Tabata session

 

Then I'll be taking it easy until the weekend.  That will MORE than make up for it though!

BOOM!

 

After seeing and reading about the quality of the UK mud, I've decided I need to experience a UK OCR someday.

 

Going to have to figure out how to work that into future travel plans.

 

yeah, you can tell you're into OCR in the UK when your wife tells you that you forgot to clean the bath out .... and hands you a dustpan & brush (true story).

 

and I have another interview (by phone) with a guy in the states ... tonight.  Seems ridiculously positive.

got more details about what actually happened with the previous guy that interviewed me and it makes a lot more sense now.

Last weekend in January or thereabouts is tough guy. If you're coming over for one I suspect that should be it. Which isn't to say that the nuts challenge (hardest in uk) or rat race dirty weekend (longest Assault course allegedly) wouldn't be good too. If you do come over let me know and I'll come out of retirement to run it :)

Still hoping for a spartan ultra at some point. Or the tough guy marathon in 2016 ;)

Looking forward to hearing how it went! 

 

Also, I must share my irritation. The 5th graders at my school keep saying the word "hashtag" before everything. And I mean everything. Like every part of a normal conversation. I would like to bitchslap the stupid idea out of them, but I would also like to keep my job. Dilemma. (note I did not use a hashtag)
