18ck and Flyer19 - The Spirited Away Challenge


18ck

Recommended Posts

Heroic exploits of Flyer19 and 18ck : we both did three Neila Rey workouts - the Star Lord, Pokemon and Abs of fire (?) We also did some bridge practice which Flyer found easy but I was still a bit sore from yesterday.

The workouts involved some squat jumps which probably weren't a great idea given that I want to do well at tomorrow's Park Run, but hi ho.

Flyer19 went to a swimming lesson and worked in her scorpion pose.

18ck managed to go for a run (about 4k at super-speed) at 9pm after cycling to and from work. He is feeling pretty badass for managing to get out the door. He also did some Portuguese reading and listening and ate exemplary whole 42 goodness all day.

I trust Flyer did not work on scorpion pose during swim class although I once saw a girl in my son's diving class who practically did scorpion in mid-air when she kicked off too aggressively.

 

And 18ck should feel badass for doing speedwork at the end of a long day.

Yeah, I think I got badly demojoed there for a while. Work stuff, you know. I've done some bits here and there but not much. Some diamond Push-ups, some Portuguese, some bridges and so on. Yesterday was better though: I ran fast for 3k or so, the long way round to the gym, where I lifted weights, did some pull-ups and some really long bridge holds. That felt good, and I intend to do some proper running tomorrow too.

On the general life front, I'm still eating orange, brown and green things, and I've taken to leaving my phone charging in another room at bedtime so I don't get distracted by it but I've also missed some whole nights due to work, so I guess that um... Isn't so good.

Smashed out 5k in the evening after a day hanging around with m'daughter. Also did some diamond Push-ups and finally managed 10 in a row, having been stuck at 8 for ages. Quite pleased. And ate all the right things. I dunno though. I'm not losing weight as fast as I did last time around. Maybe not at all. Oh well, not to worry - given the work situation and the proximity of Christmas I think the current slow and steady course is not bad at all so I'll stick at it.

[This spirited away? Cause this was good.

Yep, that's the one. It's a family favourite now, although it had a couple of years in the "too scary to watch" shelf.

Completely agree on the slow and steady through the holidays! Very wise, man.

Thanks. I weighed myself today and apparently I have lost a couple of pounds after all. I'm not really feeling it though.

Congrats on breaking the plateau on those diamond pushups. That is always a nice feeling!

Yep, thanks. My tris are obviously coming along.

Well, it was a good morning. I went out for a short row in the Thames, then spent a couple of hours on a sort of local cleanup project, pulling barrels and cones and netting and all kinds of shit out of the river under the bridge. It was quite a workout in itself, especially wading through thick, squelchy mud. I still had some energy though, so I went back to the club and did some light lifts (pull-ups, squats at 20k, pull, curls, bridges)

Ate all the eggs.

I think I'm going to sign up for a Portuguese exam. I think it's the incentive I need to kick me up to the next level.

Had a funny moment when I didn't put together that "k" meant kilograms, and was trying to figure what you meant by a "light lifting session" of 20,000 lbs.

Also, an exam sounds like a great way to incentivize your Portuguese program.

D'oh! Yes, I only had 20 kg on the bar. I guess autocorrect is more used to me listing running distances than weights!

Today was OK, although 18ck was feeling a bit rough after yesterday and interpreting every slight twinge or feeling of tiredness as the onset of Weil's disease.

Both our heroes did some Portuguese learning together and as usual Flyer's accent was the best. 18ck also did a short, fast run in the dark and some diamond Push-ups (12 today! Woo-hoo! Onwards and upwards!) and ate all the good things.

Is the elbow bridge like the yoga wheel pose? That's really impressive.

Don't get sick!

Ah the wheel pose is the same as a bridge - like this:

Elbow bridge is the same but you use elbows instead of hands. I have a pic of me doing that too but the whole leggings-and-belly situation is just too hideous for public consumption.

Today we did a Portuguese lesson together, which was fun, and - again - I am really impressed at how well she pronounces words and how quickly she picks up the grammar. She is much more gifted than I am when it comes to languages. Flyer gave me some bridge coaching as well as doing some exercises and stretches of her own. I managed a few bridge Push-ups (!) and in the evening went for a quick run to the rowing club for a spot of lifting.

All this and healthy eating too. Yeah, that brief loss of mojocity is definitely over now.

Okay, I guess I am confused about the yoga names, and it seems like everything I Google has confusing results.

I was trying to ask if you were doing this:

But I am getting the sense that you are doing this:

bridge-pose-on-elbows.jpg

Still impressive. I can't do it.

Yep - the second one (but with much sloppier form!)

It seems to be quite easy to learn, but maybe I just had a good teacher (and she, in turn, learned it from YouTube!)

18ck didn't do any exercise today unless you count cycling to work, and he doesn't. Both 18ck and Flyer19 did some excellent Portuguese work though, and plenty of green and brown stuff was eaten.
