OK, the marathon's over and now I am become Shiva, Destroyer of Worlds, so let's kick off this challenge with my four point plan for destroying the entire contents of the milky way.

1. Devour New York

We evil destroyers of civilization always like to start by rampaging through a city with recognisable landmarks, demonstrating how man's puny technology is powerless before the primal power of an avenging monster.

In other words, I am going to plan in 2 days of primal eating a week to get a sense of what it's like ahead of a potential w30 attempt (unless I regain my senses) in the following challenge. If I feel the need for some cake, I will eat a big apple. Ho ho, do you see what I did there?

2 days per week = CON 3, CHA 1

2. Outrun the Speed of Light

By bending the laws of physics, I will cause time to run backwards, not just a few minutes like that hopeless amateur Superman, but all the way back to the 1980's, age of synth pop and Margaret Thatcher. If that doesn't strike fear into the hearts of puny mortals, I don't know what will.

In other words, I will run far and fast. One long run per week in the half marathon range, and at least one short fast run, making sure to stretch thoroughly afterwards

1 and 1, every week for 6 weeks = STA 4

3. Get Off Uranus

Swim through the galaxy, like Great A'tuin, but, you know... evil!

Swimming, basically. Once per week, at least

1 swim per week = STR 2

4. Shoot Frickin' Laser beams out of my eyes

Or failing that, just learn portuguese.

Do the laser shooty thing = 1000000000 awesomeness points

1 Decent burst of Portuguese per day for 42 days = WIS 5

And while I'm doing that, play keepy-uppy with the exercise streak, doing one thing per day on days when I don't have a scheduled activity. Pushups, handstands, pilates, slackline... whatevs!

I really hope this galaxy destroying thing works out for me. In fact,as I see it, there's only one thing that can stop me...

Rawr!

Day -2. Tremble in fear, puny earthlings, for my reign of terror is at hand! Today I lay in bed for fully 4 hours after waking up but I'm still in post-marathon mode (i.e., eat and do whatever I feel like doing and justify it as recovery time). Then I went with Flyer19 to the park on our bikes. I did a hill run while she had a riding lesson, then we did some timed sprints and some assassiny stuff.

I'm getting pretty decent at kicking up into these.

While we were at it, we hatched some plots and photographed each other doing flying kung-fu leaps for the photoshop pictures. In fact, it was a bit of a nerdfitnessy day!

On the way home, we looked at new bikes for her It's her ninth birthday soon so we were checking out what's available. I was a bit shocked to see she can basically sit on the smaller-sized ladies' Bobbin bikes with her feet flat on the ground and both hands on the handlebars. She's big. We also practised riding one-handed. My little, little baby, a ruthless intergalactic assassin who can ride around on an adult-size bike with one hand on the handlebars and the other assasinating dudes with some kind of Ninja Throwing Star. What happened?

Nice theme and cool pic! Can't you destroy some other galaxy though, I am kind of fond of it :)

You'll have to hope my arch-nemesis and daughter, Flyer19 can stop me then. Bwahahaha!

So today - epic time spent meeting new level 1 dudes, getting RSI in my thumbs because there are so many peeps to say hi to. There were a couple of Brazilians so I had a chance to inflict my Portuguese on them. They didn't run away. That's good, right?

Flyer19 and I went for a scout/assassin mission, jogging from place to place and doing BW rows, log parkour, and about 10 minutes of handstands. I really enjoy the sensation but can't help feeling I'm going to break my stupid neck. Anyway, later on I did a 20 min threshold run. Should have been a long run really but I was enjoying spending time with the family and we're between challenges so I thought I'd go easy on myself.

Day - 1 ends. Tomorrow the Apocalypse begins. Prepare yourself for

THE END OF THE GALAXY!

Day 1

Went out with Flyer19 for a quick burst of energy. Tried handstands but trousers to tight (D'oh!) and skipping but had 2 left feet. She was better. Took our shoes off and did barefoot sprints.

In evening did a bunch of pushups. Surprised how much my arms hurt from yesterday. Português reading and listening. Wrote update in telegraphic style.

I can't wait until my kids are old enough to inflict crazy exercise routines on as opposed to the other way around. How do you suggest beginning?

They're naturally pretty energetic anyway so I guess thing one would be "don't stop them". Set limits on screen time, and just make it fun, really. We run for a but then stop and do crazy little girl stuff like dancing or handstands or swinging on climbing frames, then run on to the next place, and that's a fun treat. Here in the UK, the education minister was recently criticised for saying children should be made to run as a punishment for misbehaviour. Thats the sort of attitude that will teach them that running is unpleasant and should be avoided.

Your goals are phenomenal. I love trying to mix some of your references... Great A'Tuin being held captive by Dr. Evil and made to swim about with friggin' laser beams strapped to him... tee hee.

 

I love that you and Flyer19 are doing tandem Challenges. I think we might have to root for the assassin, though, lest is should mean the end of us all!!

The assassins are ruthlessly efficient, so no worries there.

It's awesome that you're doing this with Flyer19. Plus your threads always make me laugh (which is a good thing).

I was aiming more for mortal terror at the prospect of your imminent doom and the extinction of all you hold dear, but I guess I'll settle for making you laugh.

Thanks, AverageFish

So today:

Pretty relaxed - just working most of the day, but in the evening I went to the club to do some ergo (stationary rowing) and some weight work. I ran there and back and a fair way up the towpath too, making about 4k at a pretty high pace. It got me good and sweaty anyway, and that's the main thing. I ran into my partner from the Pairs HORR and I think I'm in for a proper rowing outing on Thursday. The week's shaping up nicely.

Sometimes laughter is the only response to the prospect of imminent doom and the extinction of all one holds dear.  Laughter, and chocolate.
