Not SCARY city, loud, chaotic, wait in line EVERYwhere, busy busy busy, noisy city.  :tongue:    But I did have fun.  Lots and lots of fun.   I don't think I will EVER forget the Thai restaurant awesomeness.  You were awesome helping me, (and everyone) navigate and situate Maigrey.  Thanks for being a doll!   And now I don't have to do anything downtown-y for like, another 5 years!   

Wrong. Next time I come back, we're going downtown again and I'm not waiting 5 years.

Hi Starpuck! I love the idea of playground workouts, I need to find a playground that isn't behind a chain link fence so I can play too.  I have sort of the opposite problem you do from an Indoors-vs-Outdoors weather perspective--in SE Texas, you stay indoors June-October haha.  At least it doesn't have SAD accompanying it though.

 

You've inspired me to find somewhere to play outdoors. :)

Awesome!   I find that playgrounds are good during the day in the summer (not so much for you), so I can see how you'll have a harder time matching winter-outdoors-playgrounds, unless you can do it before school hours, or after by a couple hours.    Or find ones that aren't much loved anymore!   Keep me posted on how the hunt goes!

 

Uh, no, unless 5 years is code for a couple months...

 

>.>  Yea.  Yeah that's it.    Though, truth be told, drive down to veg at a house with dance games would be okay.  Probably.

What is keeping you from the American Ninja Warrior gym? That sounds awesome!

 

IIRC, I caught a few of his youtube channel 'inspirational' videos, and he came across as a total d-bag.   I'm not well motivated by negative reinforcement, and at least a few of his videos came across that way rather directly.   To be fair, I should look again and make sure I've matched up the gym to the commentator.   Because outside of that --- well probably cost. ;)  BUT!  Less of a total deterrence than jerkface gymowner would be. :)

 

Hi fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. trainee! Nice challenge, looking forward to seeing you around here.

 

Woot!   Fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. recruit-trainee person!    Who knows, soon we may be the next Fitz-Simmons!  Star-Hutch, or or ... Hutch-Puck!  

 

Starpuck, I like outdoorsing. Provided at the end of the night I get to be indoors. Not a cold weather camper. Headed to starved rock next month for the weekend to see the colors be pretty :)

 

 

Oooooh.   Niiice.   I should do that too!   Haven't been there in fall in ages.  And, thus far, I am not much of a camper myself.  I've gone like ... twice.  Ever.  LOL.  So noooo cold weather stuff for me.  (Though the ONE time was in fact, at Starved Rock, and it got down to like 38 that night... Holy crap.  That was misery.   Thank god I had a bottle of wine for warmth.)

Asset Recovery Program, Day 1

Monday, 9/15/14

 

The asset was found at 0900 hours with a McDonald's Burrito and Iced Coffee in hand.   She was approached and notified that she was to return to the facility for immediate training.    This information caused some manner of uncertainty and confusion for the asset.

skye-what.gif

 

Further explanation was given; an initial week of basic training followed by a week long field test.   At the end of the two weeks, the choice is hers to stay on or be moved to the watchdog list.    Asset asked what a watchdog list was.   She was told it was classified.   

 

Asset agreed to come with and we returned to the undisclosed warehouse location to begin an initial fitness test.  

Asset seemed less than interested at the start of the program.

Beginning Physical Test Standards

 

Jump Rope: 3 minutes

Jumping jacks, 20

Squats, 3 x 20

Hip Raises, 3 x 20

Push Ups, 3 x 10

Scap Pull Ups, 3 x 10   +1 Hold/Negative ~15"

Planks, 3 x 50"

 

10 Minutes of Stretching

 

Summary of recruit recovery suggests a long and arduous road ahead.   Reluctance to believe in standard procedures and an apprehension to team trust will make the process more difficult.   Unsure if she will come around.   However, if Agent C deems her an asset, we will honor his wishes- though I believe it will be a long while before we see the fruits of our labor on this one.

 

::End transmission::

 

 

So!   That actually makes it sound a lot worse than it was.    I got plenty of sleep last night, woke up feeling as if I had regained at least a portion of my lost sleep, and hit the day running.  Work was really busy, but I managed an even keeled mood through out it.   I had woken up with a twingy ankle (somewhere in the ankle junk is feeling a bit strained, likely from skating yesterday, not too worried about it long term) but was determined to get in those Day 1 Motivated Workouts.    Stole from Batwoman's spreadsheet.  [Like, seriously, stole right from it!]   And... the workout felt great!   I was super, super, awesome happy that today, I was able to do regular pushups, and complete ten in a row.   (Final set looking a bit strained of course.)   But it has been a few weeks of having to do incline pushups to get my lost strength back, so this was very encouraging.  I tracked my food!   I also set up My Fitness Pal to play along nicely with my Fitbit.    As feared, my steps on a work day are soooo ridiculously low, and I am tempted to go walk now, but it's cold and dark-ish and I also should get an honest gauge of what a 'strength only' day will look like expenditure wise.    So.  Woot.  Gotta love First Day Motivation, yeah?

Asset Recovery Program, Day 2

Tuesday, 9/16/14

 

After the first day of settling in, and having completed the starting physical test standards, the asset showed signs of some muscle fatigue and exhaustion.   Adjustments to dietary program began, and a brisk 2 mile walk was instituted as a means of active recovery.    Information on next week's field test is being finalized and should be presented to the recruit by Friday.   

 

::End transmission::

 

Today was a bit harder to mojo through.    Tired, with muscle aches reminding me why I should not so often be in the habit of taking weeks off my exercise regime, combined with a horrific work day added up to make the overall feeling of today as 'MEH'.   Food started off great, but a last minute "Oh crap it's my sister's 30th anniversary today and we are going out to celebrate"  caused a hiccup.   Good news is I planned ahead on what I was getting from Olive Garden.   (From the Lighter Fare option)   Bad news is that I had been starving ALL day, so I DID end up eating two of the stuffed mushrooms, two of the ravioli's and half of a bread stick as an appetizer.   Sooo, my dinner added up to 1000 calories even being mindful.   FML lol.   I mean that in all silliness really.  I KNOW restaurant food is high in calorie and fat and most of the time, stuff that isn't good for you.   But it's so crazy that you can go in there and opt for a 'lesser of the evils' decision and still get pwned so bad on the caloric intake.   Tomorrow back to home cooking so that should help.   Also have another workout for lunch, and maybe some squat-uppercuts too!   I've been dying to use those yet untouched resistance bands in my whse gym.

You go girl! Rest days are as important as training ones. As far as the amout of calories... well... 1000 calories aren't so bad, just as long as you train tomorow (as you will) to burn them all up.

 

Let's kill day 3 shall we?
