18ck is going to have to science the shit out of this

Hello Scouts.

I'm starting a day late. I've got some new year resolutions and I'm thinking 2016 need to be a more joined up year for me. I'm going to see each challenge as an episode rather than a thing in itself, and try to think of it less in terms of "Work for six (or four!) weeks, then collapse in a heap" and more in terms of building out goals over a longer time frame,mever being in dowmtime.

This first one stage is just going to be about reviving my mojo after new year dormancy and getting back into good habits, plus making better plans for the rest of 2016.

Hey 18ck, I think it's a wonderful idea to reach beyond the challenge time period and move through. It will help that there are fewer days in between challenges.

Go for it!!

Glad you're here! I wondered where you'd got to.

Have you got any race plans for this year? I'm heading your way for the Great Newham Run in July.

Sounds like you're planning ahead, which is kewl! How far is Great Newham?

I actually don't have much in the way of races. I'm mostly working on short runs, but I've got a free half marathon entry in the Spring (in exchange for stewarding last year). I'll have to see how it fits in though...

So anyway, I'm really enjoying the current trajectory, or rather the trajectory I was on before Christmas came along and messed it all up. The goal in the first four weeks is just to

(a) stick at that - so low carb, high protein diet, lots of exercise (weights as well as cardio), lots of good Portuguese, to get the ball rolling again

(B) put stuff in place for the rest of the year - apply for a Portuguese exam, plan running and rowing races, get my lines of sight set up for the time between now and then.

I'm sort of not minded to be very specific at the moment. Well see, maybe there will be points and stuff, but at the moment I just feel like doing the things for their own sake.

Newham is 10km so not too far.

I think I'm going to start doing a bit of stewarding this year. I'll volunteer at Parkrun first to get a bit of a feel for being a non runner!

Yes. It is quite tentacley.

Mm, and cute too. I must show Flyer - she'll like it.

So anyway, progress so far:

Monday was weights and a short short run, Tuesday was a longer run, today was just cycling a lot if you call that a workout, which I don't. I'm doing paleoish food. I've done some Portuguese work, mainly trying to understand the instructions for how to sign up for an exam - which seems to assume you're already fluent. Hm.

Excellent on both counts! 10k is a good distance. Oh, all distances are good distances. So do you have a plan to get up to race fitness?
