Voltron: Tanktimus Forms Blazing Sword for Warrior Dash


Recommended Posts

Continuing with my 80’s Cartoon Theme we turn now to the story of five intrepid explorers who journey to find the legendary Voltron, who has been split into five lions that can reform the mighty Voltron, Defender of the Universe. In the challenge after this one I will be running my first OCR, the Warrior Dash, so I have that in mind as I am crafting these goals. Each Lion will be plugged into one of my five goals. There is a more recent version of the cartoon that links each lion to a specific attribute that I’m using to link those lions to the goals. The intro is of course from the 80’s, like me. I’m also naming the pilots of each lion after Rebels who inspire me in the areas of fitness they represent. I’m sorry that there are only Five Lions and I can’t fit every Rebel into this thread.

Yellow Lion: Piloted by Sam Ashen. No need to explain why I picked him. Strength. Nine lift days. The yellow lion is the lion of the Earth, and is known for its strength. When I built ten lift days in the last challenge I forgot that the final weekend wouldn’t be part of the challenge, so I’m dialing the goal down to nine. Anything over nine means bonus points. I need strength to complete those obstacles in the warrior dash.

Red Lion: Piloted by Xena. Speed. Anyone who can run two marathons in one challenge had earned the right to pilot the Red Lion. Nine run days. The Red Lion of fire is fast, and I’m going to be faster at the end of the challenge than I was at the beginning. I’m still working on Runkeeper’s Running for Fat Loss program. Anything over nine runs is bonus points. I need speed and endurance to finish the course.

Green Lion: Piloted by Sloth the Steady. The Green Lion of Life comes from the Forest, and represents life giving food. I chose Sloth for his heroic struggle to dial in the Misery diet and conquer SlothBelly. Cook Paleo with no more than three variances a week. 1% bonus for each unused variance at the end of the week. Gotta fuel the tank to be able to run the race.

Black Lion: Piloted by Darkfoxx. The Black Lion of Air is going to Represent my Domestic Rangering Goal. I still remember her epic Decluttering complete with doggie pics from last year. Each week I will: Clean the bathroom, clean the kitchen, do laundry, mop, vacuum and take out the trash in a timely manner. I haven’t been letting the trash get out of hand, but I mash stuff down to make room more often than I’d like. Success is defined as taking the trash out as soon as mashing it down doesn’t make a difference, instead of waiting.

Blue Lion: Piloted by Nymeria. The Blue Lion of Water represents flexibility, as water is fluid. I think we all know why I picked Nymeria for this one :) Two Foam rolling sessions per week, and one NF Yoga mini-mobility sessions per week. I’m still baby-stepping this one up so I’m only adding one thing from last time. Gotta be anti-fragile to prevent injury while conquering the Warrior Dash.

Let’s Go Voltron Force!

Nice range® of goals, I particularly hear you on the trash situation... I've been known to start a new bag rather than taking out the old :/

Great theme, and solid goals!  I'm hitting the domestic rangering and the prehab stuff pretty hard this challenge, too.  :)  And I'll absolutely have your back and will help encourage you with the foam rolling and yoga work.  Rolling out your hamstrings, quads, and ITB should do wonders for your recovery from the running.

Nice theme, I'm pleased that I finally know one of the cartoons you kids are talking about.  Also incredibly honored to be a part of the team.

You earned it a long time ago my friend. Its great you know this one.

I see what you did there. If I take the old bag out of the can I will take it out to the dumpster, but I can make a bag last longer than is helpful.

 

Looks great! Love your honorary Lions.

Thank you. I'm not going to do a story like Rurik, but I wanted to honor some of my fellow Rebels.

 

Great goals!! I feel ya on the housecleaning! I really need to do that! 

Then go do one little, easy, trackable thing right now.

 

Following along for an awesome theme (yes I remember watching this cartoon as well and I am also from the 80s LOL)

Glad to have you.

 

Loving the 'mashing it down' goal, that is so true!

"Now we know that Trolls also explode."

I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about ;)

 

In for the ride. Great theme, i watched it a lot when i was a kid, and i even had a friend who had all the the lions to form the big one. I was so jealous.

 

You will come fully prepared for the warrior dash, no doubt in my mind! Now let's make some bonus points!

I had the green one. He got lonely and made friends with my transformers.

Thanks. I tend to foam roll more on run days than lift days. Interestingly my ITB doesn't really have any problems, maybe because I haven't been running very long. Even foam rolling on it doesn't hurt. Just lucky I guess.

 

Cackling at 'SlothBelly' - you don't need luck, you've got this!

You need to check some of Sloth's old challenges, his struggle to overcome it has been epic, which is why he's piloting the green lion.

Thanks, I plan on it. I also look forward to seeing you Druid all over your challenge goals!

Fun challenge. Can't wait to hear about all the Warrior Dash. Never heard of the cartoon though, before my time, and before my son's time, so for the most part I'm pretty clueless on 80's cartoons.

5 robot lions for a mecha, bad guys attack, Voltron wins. Glad you'll be here Master Harrigath.

 

Love your themes! Reminds me of very vague memories from when I was a kid and Loved watching these shows. 

Looking forward to you destroying your goals once again! Tank Style!!

Thanks! I'm going to keep doing these themes till I run out of 80's cartoons.

Love that gif. Glad to see you hanging out with the Rangers.

 

Here for this~

Plenty of Voltron to go around this time.

 

Good looking goals. I am here to suck some motivation from your awesome challenge.

Take all you need, and make sure you top that motivation off with discipline.

 

Ooooh, I loved watching Voltron! I mostly watched "boy" cartoons as a kid and Voltron was one of my favs. I love the sound of your challenge!

If it makes you feel better I liked She-Ra too.

 

I went wtih Mom and Dad to Olive Garden and ate about a Sam Ashen's worth of calories. No regrets, but I'm glad it wasn't part of the challenge because I had already used 3 variances this week. Not gonna worry about it either.
