18ck and Flyer19 - The Spirited Away Challenge


18ck

Recommended Posts

Flyer19 had a rest day. Did I mention her hour and a half of dancing yesterday? No I didn't, did I?

18ck did a 5k-ish fast run at lunchtime and an hour-long circuit training session at the rowing club. He is still eating according to the sacred principles of Whole 42 and he has spent some time answering Trivia questions in Portuguese and getting his arse handed to him by a succession of Brazilian girls. After Toothbrush Time we're doing some more Michel Thomas listening and speaking ready for our Portuguese day. I'm sort of dreading the whole day thing actually. The potential for frustration fueled arguments seems high. If only wine was allowed in whole 42.i have a feeling I'll need it.

"Mais o menos", não "mas o menos"

Isto é confuso.

Em Português "mais" significa "more", mas em francês significa "but".

E em português "mas" significa "but" mas em espanhol significa "more"

Não é surpresa que Nigel Farage quer deixar o união europeu.

O dia de português!

A Flyer19 fiz um corrida com mamã e praticou português e a sua violino.

O 18ck também praticou a sua idioma e fiz uma corrida sozinho (o, coitado 18ck! 😢). A corrida era muito curto mas bastante rápido.

We didn't actually speak Portuguese ALL day because it would have been too frustrating for Flyer, I think, because her vocabulary is still quite limited, but we got through it in one piece with lots of good lessons and practice. We did Portuguese language Trivia quizzes (she loves a Trivia quiz, Flyer does) and talked a lot about food and what-not in Portuguese with pauses for explanation, and the recipe I used to cook dinner was in Portuguese (frango com batatas ao forno)

I wussed out of my rowing session though, so today has been more of a brain challenge day than a proper fitness challenge day, but still, I feel like it has been a big success.

Today's big news is thay Flyer19 managed a standing dive at swimming class that the teacher said was good. So she's on two out of three and we are level in our challenge again!

18ck, meanwhile, did some light Portuguese, a short, fast run in the dark with a head lamp, and some good, chunky strength work in the club weight room.

Circuits yesterday and a short, fast, but not much activity today. Portuguese and diet goals both on track.

Today was a fast (well, fastish) 5k and some diamond Push-ups. Dinner was chilli so I had the - I think - second non-whole-42 meal of the challenge. Some rice, some beans.

Only knew day left. Flyer and I both have a goal to hit but God know how we're going to crowbar it all in. There's a lot happening.

Today's workout was a sculling session on the Thames. It was lovely water even though it was freezing. Two Christmas parties so my whole 42 finished abruptly. One of them was for an 85-year-old Portuguese aunt-in-law though so I had some conversation practice too. Bonus.

So overall progress:

18ck went from not being able to do a bridge at the start of the challenge to being able to hold one comfortably and even do bridge Push-ups or go into an elbow bridge. That's two of the three challenges. However no attempt at the pirouette was even made so that was a fail.

The whole 42 diet went well apart from the last day and a half. Hi ho, a whole 40 is still pretty good.

There was plenty of running and good, solid exercise and the Portuguese learning was probably the best, most concentrated of all challenges so far.

@Flyer19 has done well too but I'll let her describe her own heroics when she gets a free minute.
