[BitterOyster] takes on the Indigo League

Recommended Posts

BITTEROYSTER! Your very own Pokemon legend is about to unfold! A world of dreams and adventures with POKEMON awaits! Let's go!

 

1 - Strength Training 3xWeek

Tuesday: Body Pump

Thursday + Saturday: Stronglifts at home

 

2 - Go to the Gym 3xWeek

The Pump session counts. The other two can be swimming, aqua aerobics or other classes. Hoping to try some new cardio classes and take another crack at Body Balance. 3x per week means good value on my membership, 2x is still better than single-entry.

 

3 - Ranger it Up Outside 2xWeek

I'll pick from these options:

  • Bushwalking
  • Rucking (city or nature)
  • Swimming (beach)
  • Planned 10km walk I never got around to
  • Gardening
  • Running
  • Ruck to the park and climb

 

Motivation

Q9TyAQa.jpg

Achieve a foundation of fitness before starting a martial art next year (and be able to do other cool stuff like pack hiking).

 

 

This is going to be a lot per week (7 things since Pump counts for both #1 and #2). I thought about cutting back, but the outside stuff can be simple and worked into my routine by rucking to the shops a suburb over. Unweighted light exercise will give my body time to recover but still put a strain on my time and organisation, so I'll see how I go.

 

I'll also be working the themes of each badge into some of the outside challenges, for 1 or 2 badges per week.

OMG I love your challenge, the badges are genius! Looking forward to following :D

Dude, this is awesome!! I love Pokémon, although unfortunately my Poke-trivia is not up to par. But I know more than enough to appreciate the heck out of your challenge! Good goals! Subbed :panda:

Thanks guys! I really appreciate not just yelling into the void :)

 

 

I'm totally just here for Pokémon! DH and I may or may not be going as Ash and Misty for Halloween :D

I love this whole challenge of yours. The badge system is great!

Good luck and happy rangering!

Oh awesome! Pictures?

You have set them down the path of realizing that one day they will all learn how to Ranger.

 

Incidentally, I like your new avatar. I found the old one inexplicably creepy. It shouldn't have been weird to me, it was a perfectly fine dog, but it got me for some reason. Weird.

Glad to see you stocking up for your battle with the gym leader! Sounds like you hit up the Pokémon centre too, very good.

:D

I posted Halloween pics on my thread, if you want to see!

Hey that's a good idea, I can think of rest days as Pokemon Centre visits. I'd never go after a gym leader without healing fully.

d73TO3n.png BITTEROYSTER received the BOULDERBADGE!

 

Had to get in early this week. I hiked a new path (not weighted) and then climbed a rocky slope to join up with my usual path to get back. The new bit was rougher than I expected - normally not an issue but the heat was really getting to me.

 

I wasn't planning something so difficult for the first badge but this hike destroyed me. I was worried I was going to pass out on the climb and fall. I had to sit down every 30 steps because I was so out of breath and my heart was going so fast. I've done the same climb on a cool day and it was tough but nothing like this.

 

So I learned my lesson about extending myself when it's hot. This challenge is going to have to be my goodbye to hiking and rucking for the rest of the summer, except for freak cloudy days or stuff I can fit in the evening.

 

The rock type battle:

There was a lot of this

And a fair bit of this

Pokemon encounters

A wild Eastern Water Dragon appeared!

A wild Noisy Miner nest appeared!

And the views that made it all worth it
