Doc Viking #3: Perkele


Einar

Recommended Posts

After taking the last challenge and a half off I've pretty much destroyed all the progress I had made.  So this challenge will be all about getting back at it.  Sorry doodlies, I won't be doing any dancing.  I'm going to shoot for three main goals.  Strength, endurance, and being an adult.

 

Strength: Since I fell off the wagon with lifting I am starting over with stronglifts 3x/week

 

Endurance: I'm starting a C25K on the days I don't lift 3x/week, and the working on some muscular endurance with some good ol' Military bodyweight training.  Depending on the weather as we go into this season I may try to throw in some rucking as well.

 

Be and adult: I'm going to set aside at least 10 minutes every day to clean up my room and keep it clean/organized.  I'm going to practice German a little every day.  I won't play games on my phone or watch movies until I have done these two things as they are my biggest time wasters.

Yes the entire challenge is one big respawn party for me.  Unfortunately this means I can't screw it up cause it would be crass to call Perkele for a Perkele...

No safety net. You can do it.  It's also the last challenge of the year. Make it count.  No pressure though.  :D

Welcome back. Looks like this is gonna be a great challenge.

It'll either be great, or I'll go down in a ball of flames.  Either way works for me.

Starting strong in week 0.  Didn't go to the gym yesterday because my cats tried to kill my Sunday night and I fell down the stairs.  Luckily I know how to fall and only bruised my ass.  Even so I was still sore in the morning and didn't wan't to squat.  So I moved my gym day to this morning and everything went smoothly.  I didn't completely start over on Strong Lifts, but close enough.  I will start my running week one because I have a funeral to go to this week.

Squat: 225x5x5

Bench: 135x5x5

Row: 135x5x5

 

The lifts were nothing to write home about but they went up nice and smooth.  I'm using this ramp up period to focus on form and control.  No bouncing at the bottom of the squats or bench or jerking the bar on the rows to help me complete the lift.  Overall I'm happy myself and am looking forward to making progress again.

Good job recovering from falling down the stairs.

A bruised ass and bruised ego are a small price to pay for not cracking my skull on the way down the steps.  Damn murderous cats.  The best part is while I was trying to stretch and make sure there was no muscular injuries, I apparently stood up too quickly and had a bout of orthostatic hypotension and nearly passed out.  As it was I managed to sit on the floor as my vision blackened and my limbs and head twitched uncontrollably.  Would really have freaked me out if it hadn't happened to me many years ago.  I figure it was because I was dehydrated and my heart was racing after my trip not being helped by doing a standing hamstring stretch and then standing up too quickly.  All in all I wouldn't classify it as a fun night.

I bet your cat got a kick out of it though.

They weren't actually around.  It was an accumulation of cat hair on wooden steps and wet feet from a shower.  And it was probably mainly from one of my two roommates' cats because my cat is short haired and tends to hang out in the basement with me rather than upstairs.

I see.  I had visions of a cat slipping in front of your feet as you went down the stairs or something assasin-y like that.  That's how my cat operates.  He still tries to kill me and he's 20 years old.

My cat has been accidentally punted a couple times for trying that, so she learned.

My cat is pretty stealthy so he manages to avoid any injury himself.  He usually sneaks up behind you and gets you as you back up or turn around.

And if needed you can always call a double perkele. But beware: you'll drown in dance gifs ;)
