SaltyDragon Posted March 30, 2016 Report Share Posted March 30, 2016 This challenge finds me on the road for five weeks of travel and adventure. Leaving Alaska, I'll visit Hawaii, Oregon and Texas, and at least one other undetermined mystery location after that. There could even be another epic road trip involved. Adapting and keeping up with a reasonably demanding workout schedule will be the focus of this challenge. I've learned a lot about how to do this already this year, and I'm excited to see what else I can discover. Run 100 miles. I'm including the zero week for this. I have a 10k race on the 16th, and should have about 70 miles by then. I'll ease up a bit after that, but should still get about 15 miles a week. Push, Pull, Sit 720 Push-ups 1200 Crunches 12 Pull-ups, opportunistically I can't blame it on seas or long work days this time, so I'm keeping the same goals as before. I'd like to keep up with the pull-ups, but I'll have to be creative as to where while I'm on the move. Could be fun, actually. Stretch 32 points total. I'm increasing this one a bit, and adding some foam roller work. This is an interesting development, since I left my foam roller on the boat – first goal, buy a new foam roller! 2 points for 30 min of yoga practice, 1 point for shorter or stretching only, 1 extra point for foam rollering (that's a word, right?). Strength 16 points total. I won't have predictable, if any, access to weights so this may also take some creativity, but I'm just starting to see and feel some results, so I want to try to keep it up. I'm traveling with my resistance bands, so I can at least do that. 2 points for 20 min of strength training, 1 point for a good-try effort. Side quests 1.) Last year, I logged miles in 9 states all year. I can beat that this year. I'm starting the challenge at 4 states so far. With a road trip likely, I can at least double that. 2.) For each state I visit, do something adventurous and fun that I haven't done before, or maybe just don't get to do very often. 4 Quote Level 11 Sea Dragon | Current Challenge: | | Nov '16 | Sept/Oct '16 | Aug/Sep '16 | July/Aug '16 | June/July '16 | May '16 | | Apr '16 | Mar '16 | Feb '16 | Jan '16 | Nov/Dec '15 | Link to comment
