Jason Bourne was the tip of the iceberg. Treadstone continues as Blackbriar, and we are still out there....

bourne_screen_confidential_papers_treads

So I am taking a page from an old NF article and learning to live like Jason Bourne this challenge.

Goal 1:

bs04i-run1.jpgI can run flat out for half a mile before my hands start shaking

In preparation for my Half Marathon in September, I need to run lots and lots of half-miles, a.k.a. 800m repeats. Specifically, I will work my way up to 10x800m in three sessions on odd weeks of the challenge (even weeks will be distance training).

Goal 2:

tumblr_lz722ikT9N1qzvu9uo1_1280.jpgNo one comes over the mountain. -Yeah, well, I did.

Still perusing strength goals mostly under the guise of Convict Conditioning. The one area in which I will allow some flexibility is squats. I can skip squats if I feel I am not recovering well from the running.

Goal 3:

]

Tu sais qui je suis?

Can't remember his own name, but Bourne could ask you if you know it in at least half a dozen languages. My goal is to practice four: Spanish, French, Italian, and German, earning at least 10 points in each on Duolingo per day.

No dietary goal this time, because I want to eat for performance right now.

And...I think that wraps it up.

I am a bit of an overachiever, plus the theme idea occured to me about week two of the last challenge, so I already had it all planned out. ;)

Duolingo is pretty user friendly. I have been on for a few months now, and I like it. Of course, French and Spanish were a lot of review, but the others were new to me.

Loving the simplicity of this challenge and the theme too!!!

I felt the need for simple this time, and who doesn't love Jason Bourne?

Aaahhhh! So excite! I finally mastered the 3x40 knee tucks progression standard that has been kicking my butt for more than a month. So hard, but I completely credit these with my slimmer waist last challenge. On to the next progression!

Ça va, mais je suis fatigué. J'ai couru cinq kilometres plus ce matin à la séance d'entraînement, et je vais nager ce soir. FAIRE TOUTES LES CHOSES!

Edited to include translation for the non-francophones: I am fine, but I am tired. I ran 5K plus this morning's workout, and I will swim tonight. DO ALL THE THINGS!

+1 for the Bourne love, and the great challenge - following along

So much Bourne love, I should have done this sooner. The hubs and I have been binge-watching the series lately, which gave me the inspiration. I'd say I picked a winner.

I was actually able to understand about 90% of that, and fairly accurately pronounce all if it.  Yay!

Once I am going to let the ridiculousness that autocorrect writes when I am trying to write in French stand, so you can appreciate how difficult it is.
