Tkal Posted March 4, 2015 Report Share Posted March 4, 2015 Back from a great (but too short) vacation. Not much skiing (only 20+20+15 Km), but on all other days I went 1000m uphill (half of it on snow-shoes). Plus the days at my sister's, running/fighting/biking/throwing balls with my nephew. All in all I had plenty of outdoor quality time, which I really needed. And I came back without any extra weight on me, which is something I never manage to do when my mother is around. Now back to business as usual. And as often happens with me, this challenge will be shorter and it will end on 30th March. That makes 27 days in total instead of the usual 42 In putting together this challenge I had some trouble to decide in which thread to go. I the end I stay here, where everything still fit The conclusion of previous challenge was that the best approach is to have a consistent routine, 10 minutes of practice every day instead of 2 hours once per week Tkal is an "assassin playing with the monks" STR +2, DEX +2 I am tuning down GMB program to 15 minutes of flexibility and balancing work, every day. Establish the routine is the crucial aspect. Flexibility will be more "feel the body needs". Balancing is the usual handstand On top of that I add 15 minutes of karate skills. Focus is on the codified kicks drills. On odd days the the adventurer routine covers this Since I know my weakness, the balancing work must be done before dinner, while karate fits better in the morning or as soon as I am back from work. Tkal is a druid CHA +2, WIS +1 My house needs balance as much as me, so this is the battle plan. Each task should be completed before assassin routineMonday: fold and store clean clothesTuesday: empty dishwasherWednesday: clean table and counterThursday: clean oven, prepare garbage for collectionFriday: fill and start washing machineSaturday: put away all groceries, clean table and counterSunday: vacuum and mop floors, ironing if needed. One of the following: defrost freezer, shower deep cleaning, bake a cake for colleagues, fill tax formsTkal is an adventurer CON +2, STA +1, DEX +1 This is my established routine where I do all the things, although it feels somewhat lighter now that sleeping gets its own specific questmeditate (during lunch break at work, of first thing in the morning in the weekend)physical activities outdoor: 30 minutes karate before work on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On other days 2 hours walk or extra 30 minutes on my bike before or right after work. The walks can be split in sessions during the day (i.e. going to work and come back on foot)eat according to plan.Tkal is a warrior CON +2, WIS +1, STR +1 When you play hard, you need to recover "harder". This is my sleep target: 55 hours/week. But since a true warrior must lift something heavy, I am lifting myself each morning from my bed without pressing "snooze" the second time I'll update tomorrow with stats and tracking spreadsheet Edit: traker is prepared Edit 2: points added Quote Tkal, level 8 Dwarf assassin playing with the monksSTR 13.5 | DEX 19.25 | STA 16 | CON 18.75 | WIS 18 | CHA 14.5My walls (aka: random log) | Intro | Challenge 1 with tracker | Aborted Challenge 2 | "Real" challenge 2 | Challenge 3Challenge 4 | (never started)Challenge 5 | (super short) Challenge 5 | (third is a charm) Challenge 5 | Challenge 6Challenge 7 | Challenge 8 "Patience you must learn" Link to comment
