Terror: Fighting to be Chosen


TriTerrorTops

Recommended Posts

Walking into the domed training area, Terror lifted the visor on her helmet and glanced around. 19 females of all shapes and sizes stood waiting in readiness. Their eyes showed determination and strength - and Terror had no idea why she or these women were here. None spoke, only looked amongst themselves and the unfamiliar space. Some seemed alert and wary, whilst others seemed as if being in this space was their birthright.

 

"You have been chosen", a deep voice cut through the tense silence. A short but muscular man stepped from the shadows, each stride forward purposeful. Terror felt there was a sense of grace in his movements, akin to the cats she had left on her homeworld. She felt her gaze drawn to this man, quietly spoken but compelling.

 

"Let me introduce myself. I am Commander Rex, the trainer of the Dames - an elite response squad who are deployed to some of the most dangerous situations in the galaxy. Our mission requires strength, agility and tactical knowledge - skills which each of the 20 recruits in front of me have demonstrated through careful observation by our operatives"

 

'Observation?' Terror thought, 'All I remember is being put on a shuttle without any information as to why - and no choice whether to go. I'd know if I were being observed, due to my... well... no one wants to be near the misfit.'

 

"However" Commander Rex continued, "...we can only take 14 operatives in the field at a time. You must undertake a range of training to ensure you are fully prepared for battle - should you be selected. Each of you will shortly be taken into different sections of the training area to undertake a baseline test, from which we will tailor your individualised 4 week initial training."

 

Main Goal: Make game roster for my Roller Derby league A Team (14 players)

 

"It is of vital importance that you each become one unit together - so please remove your helmets. Look upon the faces of the women you will fight alongside, work intensely with and possibly die for."

 

Terror hesitated. The voices screamed she was in the wrong place, there must be a misssssstake, she wasn't ssssspecial and didn't dessssserve to waste everyone's time - the difference is her voices weren't just in her head. With a deep breath she lifted off the helmet, and let them out. The green snakes uncoiled from her head and writhed loosely around her shoulders with a gentle hiss. The other women took a step back.

 

"Ah, Miss Tops - you have let your secret weapon out I see. You have been chosen not despite your... oddity but instead because of it. They make you particularly gifted in communication and awareness, a vital skill for the Dames. And, I assure you ladies, they are harmless." Rex smiled. The other recruits smiled gently at Terror, but did not step closer.

 

"So - the first of your 3 areas of training. In order to best facilitate your neural connection to your own reflexes, and to help create the hive mind which our successful warriors must demonstrate - I have developed a neural-development serum each recruit must imbibe daily. I call it the Habitual-Hydro-Objective, or H2O."

 

Goal One: Drink more water

 

A: 3L per day = 5CON

B: 2L per day = 3CON

C: 1L per Day = 1CON

 

"You must also work on your strength for power and endurance in battle, plus your agility and dexterity in order to counter enemy moves before they have even made them. To this end, you must undertake a strict training regime, outlined below"

 

Goal Two: At least 2 strength workouts per week (on top of team training 3x week)

 

A: 2 workouts avg. per week = 3STR 2STA

B: 1.5 workouts avg. per week = 2STR 1STA

C: 1 workout avg. per week = 1STR

 

Goal Three: 10 minutes agility, 3 times a week

 

A: 3 per week = 3DEX 2STA

B: 2 per week = 2DEX 1STA

C: 1 per week = 1DEX

 

Terror nodded. She wouldn't listen to the voices - and if they got too loud she could always tie them in a scarf. The women turned to leave.

 

"One final directive ladies" Commander Rex called after them. "Each month you must have a detailed monitoring evaluation with one of our medical staff - to check your wellbeing and progress. There will be no excuses."

 

SIDE QUEST - One date night minimum per month with Hubby (no work!)

 

As Terror walked from the domed hangar with the other recruits, she couldn't help but think this was a beginning of a whole new chapter of her life. And she was ready for it.

I do something similar, mirroring real life into a story here on the boards.

 

Best of luck in your challenge, you certainly have a firm grasp of the basics and should have no problem kicking butt.

 

I encourage you to seek out and follow other newbies. Advice and support from people here came make all the difference, believe me I know.

Terror was taken to a small room early the next morning for her baseline test. "We need to assess your starting statistics" the stony faced medical officer said, "so we can measure your progress during your initial 4 week training."

"Can I see your clipboard - to see what I'll be asked to do?" Terror queried.

"Of course."

a9b321b97de22b9adf436bf29db09732.jpg

"The core variations are as follows - 0-1:00 minute, full plank; 1:00 - 2:00, one leg plank (switch half way); 2:00 - 3:00, one arm plank (switch half way); 3:00 - 4:00, one arm one leg plank (switch half way). Repeat. Now let's get on with it, shall we?"

RESULTS:

Cadence Push Up - 33 reps (on knees)

Agility - 29 quadrants

Vertical Leap - 30cm

Core - 1:02 minutes

Endurance - 5:45 minutes

Good job getting a baseline against which you can measure your progress at the end of the challenge. Keep up the good work.

G'day TriTerrorTops, I found your challenge thread and am following.

Adapting your challenge to the circumstances of life is probably the most important skill to learn in NF. Well done with that. Love your creative writing. Following to watch you mow this challenge down.

Weekly Round Up - Week One

This week was all about adapting - work inspection, showers broken in my gym then a thumb injury (which is as ridiculous as it sounds!) meant that things didn't happen as planned. But as someone posted above - Rangers adapt (even baby ones!)

Goal One: Drink more water

A: 3L per day = 5CON

B: 2L per day = 3CON

C: 1L per Day = 1CON

I've not managed a constant 3L every day - but I'm usually between 2L and 3L, so I'll call that a semi-win. Definitely better than before, and I've just bought another water bottle to keep at work, which I think will help.

Goal Two:At least 2 strength workouts per week (on top of team training 3x week)

A: 2 workouts avg. per week = 3STR 2STA

B: 1.5 workouts avg. per week = 2STR 1STA

C: 1 workout avg. per week = 1STR

Sunday - 1hr Kettlebells session

Monday - Skipped training due to inspection, 10 minutes agility.

Tuesday - Rest (another late night at work due to inspection)

Wednesday - Couldn't go to gym before work as showers broken - Had dinner with hubby to make up for missing 2 dinners Mon/Tues

Thursday - 2hr Skate Training - including 20 min Plyo session

Friday - 40 min gym session - 3km cycle (7 mins), Kettlebell circuit (17 mins approx), agility dot drills (10 mins) - 1hr Yoga class

Saturday - 3hr skate training (injured thumb!)

Sunday - no lifting due to thumb so 10km cycle, 8 x 10 reps leg press - 80kg, 10 mins agility dots drill.

In summary - Strength x 2.5 (Sun/Fri/Sun)

Agility x 3 (Mon/Fri/Sun)

Plus the plyometrics session which is a bit of both.

Goal Three: 10 minutes agility, 3 times a week

A: 3 per week = 3DEX 2STA

B: 2 per week = 2DEX 1STA

C: 1 per week = 1DEX

See above!

SIDE QUEST - One date night minimum per month with Hubby (no work!)

Not yet - but the month isn't up! Did have dinner together on Wednesday and went to bed early with hot chocolate and the cats so not 100% neglecting him!

Sounds like you've been doing great so far! Keep it up!

 

I'd say don't worry about your water consumption too much in these months. Listen to your body. I'm a natural when it comes to drinking lots of water(perhaps my only inherited healthy habit!) and even I can't drink 3L in winter.

 

That's interesting - of my three goals this was the one I was least sure about quantities. I might adapt the goalposts if I find that 3L is just a ridiculous amount - plus we're going to get snow this week apparently! Snow needs warmth!
