Runespeaker Waldgeist continues hunting the One Dragon Part A [#9]

Challenge #9

 

For the first/second challenge in 2016 (and the first ones under the new rules) I decided to go with the general Rebels instead of spending time in the cozy assassins guild (aka I'm getting out of my comfort zone). This "trip" (and further ones in the future to other guilds) had actually been planned for some time, now seems like the perfect opportunity.

 

The overall Challenge Goal will not change from last year (as implicated by the challenge theme) and will probably take some more challenges: getting rid of the belly (aka take the fat out of skinny-fat), measured by bodyfat percentage. Right now I'm at about 23%, the goal for this cycle of challenges is less than 15%. With the old format I'd planned to get down to under 20% after this challenge, but for 4 weeks, that is probably too much.... I'll go with a goal range of 20-21%.

 

Background story (this time it takes place in the universe of Mark Anthonys Last Rune series)

n15590.jpg

 

Everyone at the Grey Tower said I was crazy. But I'm not. I have a goal. The runespeakers are just hiding in their books ignoring the real world. They know the end of the world is coming, but do they do anything? No! Sure, they are looking for the solution. But nothing seems good enough, so they continue looking.... I've been on this quest since I became a Master of the Grey Tower myself. There is only one dragon left in Eldh. He has the power to stop the Pale King. Maybe he will not help us or not in the way I hoped, but still my quest is better than those of my brothers wasting time.

I cannot give up. I have gathered the necessary knowledge and the runes are guiding me. The only thing I  have to do is follow through. Through the wastelands of the east, the free cities of the south and now the desert of the south. I'm wandering, though I'm not lost.... I have a goal!

 

QUEST 1 : NUTRITION

I'm putting a little more weight on quality in this area. Still going to track my intake, like last challenge. But I also want to do some paleo batch cooking.

Mission:   Track Calorie/Protein/Fat/Carb intake and stay within range

                Eat at least 80% paleo

                Batch cook something paleo once per week

 

QUEST 2 : SIMPLE & SINISTER [ I OF XII ]

This will be the year of Kettlebell for me. Each challenge will have a Swings and TGU quest programmed after Simple & Sinister. The miniumum  amount of work for the whole year is 30000 Swings and 1500 TGU (per side), but technically it could be up to 36600/1830. But that is all just a background workout and shouldn't interfere (negatively I mean, positive results are hoped for of course) with whatever I focus on in my challenges.

Mission:  50 - 100 Swings per day (either two or one-handed) usually with a 24kg but on light days with 16kg

                    5 Turkish Get-Ups per side per day with a 12kg or a 16kg

                    an occasional day off is fine like once a week

 

QUEST 3 : INTERMITTENT FASTING

I used to have good experiences with those. But stopped because it interfered with work (meals were a very important social thing at my old workplace). Now it is time to get them Fasting days back.

Mission:  Once a week don't eat for 24 hours

 

QUEST 4 : STRENGTH (ENDURANCE) WORKOUT

This quests purpose is two-fold. Like last challenge it is supposed to keep my strength at a good level (don't want loose them gainz). Also since a pure calorie burn workout quest didn't work out (haha) last time, I'm incorporating this into the strength goal.

Mission:   Minimum Strength Workout (one exercise out of two of Push/Pull/Hinge/Squat) 4x per week

                Strength Endurance Worktout (like EMOM or for time or AMRAP for example) 2x per week

                Maximum Strength Workout (3 exercises out of one of Push/Pull/Hinge/Squat) 2x per week

 

LIFE QUEST : JOB + APPARTMENT HUNTING

This interim solution is coming to an end (like it should), now I need a new job and place to live for about the next 15 months (aka a base of operations and a budget to tackle those big life quests)

Mission:  Send out applications

 

Since I can't see how the Character Creation and Epic Questing integrates with the stat points I'll leave them out for now.

"How about we kick a little ass tonight?"

 

I did my Strength Workout in the morning withoug S&S and almost didn't had the willpower to do it after dinner, that was a mistake....

 

The Ring Dips were a little eye-opening I honestly thought, that I could do at least a couple of them without assistance, nope, not even one. But the complete workout was good!

 

Also didn't have milke for a protein shake which explains the big gap there.....

"The only thing you have to be is better than yesterday!"

 

Not posting for three day is not good.... Friday was an intentional rest day, Saturday an unintentional one, and Sunday I at least managed 100 Swings, if nothing else. I didn't made the 600 goal, but that was expected. And 75% is mor than good enough for now. The strenght quest was about the same. The other quests, though..... At least I got 50% caloriewise and I made an effort with everything else (except IF, that somehow slipped complete through...).

 

But other than that the week went good, weighed in half a kilo heavier but with less bodyfat percentage, therefore win.

"Todays actions are tomorrows results!"

 

I guess, I was a little absent from the forums..... My quests pretty much went on in the second half as they did in the first half. Except for he nutrition quest I just had to drop, it wasn't just feasible, when I'm not cooking myself.

The numbers for week 4 may still increase till the end of the week.
