Rab397: Getting ready for the raid

Recommended Posts

This challenge is a simple continuation of my previous challenge. This challenges consisted of 3 main elements. Run like the wind, Strength of Thor and Healthy viking.

Run like the wind
This part of the challenge is all about increasing my stamina and running distance. I have to follow my 10K trainingsprogram which means 3 times a week running. There is something to keep in mind though. There are still 2 weeks of training left while my challenge takes 5 weeks. For the remaining 3 weeks i will focus on increasing my running speed. I still have to find a program fort his. Suggestions are more than welcome. The deadline fort his is the end of this week.

 

Strength of Thor
This part of the challenge is alla bout strength training. I got a 30 day bodyweight routine set up. The idea is to do this everyday in order to get my strength level up and help in the weightloss process.

 

 

 

Healthy viking
The healthy viking challenge is alla bout good eating and losing weight. What is good eating? Well that is different per person. For me healthy eatig is an 80% paleo diet with almost no carbs. How does this look in practice. This means, fruits, salads, vegetables, boiled eggs, Lean meats, Unprocessed nuts and Feta cheese. The cheese part is why it is only 80% paleo. This part of the challenge combined wit hall the excercise should really kickstart my weightloss again.

Update time! 
This week i hit none of my goals, and that is fine. Life got in the way. Me and the girlfriend had a week off and instead of dedicating the whole week to hitting my goals i dedicated it to doing some maintenance that had to be done in the new home. It was not like that was no workout, lifting 20KG Tiles and blocks, shoveling dirt, working hard in the garden. So i definitly got to move just not my set goals. Nutrition wise it wasn't the best week but i lost a little wieght while i anticipated that i should have gained so that is epic.

Also tonight we are throwing the first BBQ of the season in our now finished garden with some friends. After that i will return to training and the break will be done. no more lollygagging. 

And now time for music

So far that is a 100% on day one. Although there were some hard moments. Especialy in regards to the healthy viking one. Today we had lovely weather and some of our teachers were "sick" so the class decided to go to the city centre and have a drink. EVeryone ordered beer and soda but i stuck with water. After a while they got nacho's and some fritters but i didn't touch a single one, let alone eat one. So that went really well. I am proud of myself for this.

Little known viking fact
There are a lot of myths about the vikings out there. One of those is that they were hairy beasts and had no feeling for cleanliness. This is actually not true, for europe they had prety good standards in regards to cleaning and grooming. Where your average franc would take a bath a year a viking would bathe ussualy once a week. There are also archealogical digs where they found entire grooming kits. Think about razors, combs all that stuff.

You've been a true hero today. You stood strong while the universe tried to seduce you to stray from your goals!

Well done!  That takes strength, viking strength!

 

Also, I thought you might find this interesting...  This viking ship will be coming into port near my mom's place.  I'm going to try and make it to see this when it arrives.  It looks like you can follow it's route here

It's going to be in Toronto! I'll have to see what my plans are for that weekend, usually on any long weekend during the summer I escape the city and head north to my parents' boat
