[Charlie_Quinn] Mostly Void, Partially Stars


Recommended Posts

I’m freewheeling a little it this time around so this challenge will be more like a battle log. There are a few things that I need to do over the next few weeks, so most of my goals will be a list of things that I need to get done before the end of this challenge. No doubt the list will get longer as the month goes on!

 

Of course, none of this is fun without a theme. I didn't really put much thought into a theme this time around, so I’m going to randomly post meme’s from Welcome to Night Vale - seeing as WTNV has taken over my life in the last few weeks and it’s endlessly quotable.

Image result for welcome to night vale quotes:

 

On the first day of this challenge, I have my first Half Marathon of the year. I’m not particularly looking forward to it as it’s going to be a tough, hilly course; possibly in hot weather (though rain is currently predicted) and I’ve been having a few calf issues the last few weeks. My aim is to just complete the race, I’m not worried about how long it takes or how many walk breaks I need. I just want to get across the finish line, preferably on my feet and with all my appendages intact.

welcome to night vale meme - Google Search:

 

Charlie’s list of stuff:

  • Book eye test & contact lens check-up
  • Call Electric Company and give a meter reading
  • Buy Father’s day present
  • Buy brother’s birthday present

Stuff for Wales Weekend Trip:

  • Arrange key pick-up time with cottage owner
  • Make list of food / drinks to take with us
  • Buy food / drink to take with us
  • Arrange birthday evening for brother

 

The only other real "goal" I have this challenge is to make sure I keep up with the Ranger Mini Challenge as I keep starting it but never finishing.

There's nothing wrong with having a challenge that is a bit lighter on the goals.  I hope you're still planning on going climbing, though!  Good luck with that half marathon!

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

I found you CQ! I pray you have ZERO issues with your calf this upcoming half marathon, which sounds tough, but you'll make it through no prob ;) Make sure and stock up on some mustard packets...for that like .000000000000001% chance that you get a cramp. I learned this from the great and wise Jedi Master, EricMn.

 

Kill this race, CQ, you got this!

Oh of course! I'm going tonight actually. I'll still keep up with my regular exercises and maybe try out a few new things while I have a break between OCR's

Very! Of course it's good to know what the hell to buy him as well. When there are 5 of us all buying him presents it becomes a competition to get the good gift first before one of the others beats you to it!

Week 0 update

After taking a few days off from pretty much everything, I did a bodyweight circuit last night. The circuit consisted of a pull-up variation, single leg squat to box, push-up variation, hip thrusts and walkouts. It felt really nice to be exercising again. Sometimes taking a break reminds you of how much you enjoy doing something. 

Tonight I'll be climbing and then doing some yoga to cool down afterwards. It's been a few weeks since I've been climbing as Hubs has had a bad back and hasn't wanted to go. He's still not 100% so I'm going on my own. They've reset a few of the slabs since I last went so I'm looking forward to trying them out.

DO IT!!! I stumbled on it by accident and now I'm completely hooked. But don't blame me if your still awake at 3am because you can't bear to wait for the next episode and you still have 2 years of episodes to catch up on! Not that that happened to me at all. :P

Hope you enjoy it. Some of the quotes are from the Night Vale Radio Twitter feed. That's worth a follow too.
