Schaengel on his way to Eternal Scout


Schaengel

Recommended Posts

Hello dear Scouts I'll be joining you for this challenge (and maybe some more) since my focus at the moment is on running, running and more running (but of course I'll remain an assassin at heart). I have a marathon coming at the start of October (what the hell pushed me there? Oh yeah my competitive self...)

So I hope to learn something here ;)

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 3"

 

I have a training schedule and a good book ("marathon for dummies") at hand but nonetheless the last runs just felt bad and often fell short of the goals I had for them. Because of that I will focus on running for the next months (and will cut out other activities like bouldering that are fun but don't help achieving my marathon goal). I will work a workout/training goal for every day here so that it's something I fell accountable for.

 

Follow the training plan (meaning between 3-4 runs per week)

Do a running fitness routine on non-running days. Stretching/Yoga for runners (Plans will be added tomorrow)

 

Scoring: Every success (success = done what was planed) is one point. I'm away for 5 days so:

23-19points A and a new running shirt, 18-14points B and still on track everything below 14points will be an F

 

Quest 2: Eat okay

I let my food choices turn bad again the last challenges so this time it's going back to basic meaning.

Eat within my calorie goal so that I can get back to losing weight. Goal is 2300kcal per day.

Track food with myfitnesspal and picture in this thread (because I hope that will keep me from the really bad stuff because of embarrassment if I have to post them)

Scoring: Every success (success = done what was planed) is one point. Eating within the calories but with bad food is 0,5points:

28-24points A and a new running shirt, 24-19points B and still on track everything below 19points will be an F

 

 

Quest 3: Keeping the water in check

I need to drink enough over the day so I will use my water app and will follow it.

Scoring: Every success (success = done what was planed) is one point. I'm away for 5 days so:

28-24points A and a new running shirt, 24-19points B and still on track everything below 19points will be an F

Quest 4: I'm an adult...somehow

Keep on top of my adult live using

and keeping evolving and doing new fun stuff with the

 

Okay I'm looking forward to this... :)

Day 1   OR   at least it's probably going up from here

A new challenge...and it starts like the last one ended :(

 

Did my 60 minute run in the morning with a friend that is considerably slower then me. Normally that would have been okay today because I felt that a slower run would be good to get back into the running mood and also having somebody to talk to while running is nicer then running alone (and the chances of me canceling it are near 0%...), but he had a really bad day today like we had to walk half the time bad so that I'm only counting it as a point for the challenge because it wasn't my fault and since I didn't new the route that we were running going faster and meeting up later just wasn't possible.

Rest of the day consisted from me lying on the sofa watching anime till the afternoon...to this point water okay and food still okay...

Then I tried to do some adulting... today I planned some project work, some cleaning my room and looking over some contracts/financial stuff.

I started with the last point on the list and found out that I missed the cancelation deadline on my phone contract by two weeks. The frustrating part about that is that I had a reminder set for the deadline when I made the contract but wrecked my phone in between and forgot to set the reminder in the new phone...so wohoo stuck for another year with a phone provider that's doing shitty service and also paying around 350€ more than I would have needed too. After that I was frustrated so I ordered pizza and went back to watching anime...so at leat it's probably going up from here...

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 3"

60 minutes of running really slow done, no stretching/yoga because F that (today)

 

Quest 2: Eat okay

Nope because of emotional frustration pizza ( I'm in my calorie goal because of good food choices in the morning and the running but because I used food because of frustration that's not worth a point...)

 

Quest 3: Keeping the water in check

Yes, and that also kept the eating fallout at bay a little

 

Quest 4: I'm an adult...somehow

Not really, tried and failed...at least I'm setting the deadlines for the project-work I planned to do so if I do some extra the next days it's going to be fine...

Well you did look through the contracts, so it seems like you did some good adulting, but that is so discouraging to find old mistakes right when you are trying to get on top of everything. Just remember it was an old mistake and now you are doing better!

I hope tomorrow goes great!

Day 2 & 3   OR   where I got swallowed by work

Nothing much to say about the last days. A lot of meetings for the university project (but also a lot of awesome feedback...the project is becoming exactly what I hoped for). Since I will be leaving for the Graspop Metal Meeting on Thursday work is priority number one at the moment (at least the stuff I cant delegate which is...a lot because of a little know-how gap between me and my team ;) ).

 

Food was okay tracked everything and took photos of nearly all things...

food.png

Eating like I feel (so sometimes skipping the breakfast if I don't fell like it) is working quite good. Also the chicken you see in the pictures at the bottom is exactly what I was looking for. Low carb, fast cooking in bulks possible and a taste that I won't get annoyed from fast. Also memo for myself need to look for low carb sauces for that then I'm pretty much set cooking wise ;)

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 3"

60 minutes of running done on day 2...even though it could have been swimming too ;) Also a basic stretching routine after

runningwater.jpg(we have a little high water at the moment here)

 

No training done on day 3 but preparations for the next weeks rest of the time was swallowed by work

Quest 2: Eat okay

Yes like mentioned above :)

 

Quest 3: Keeping the water in check

Yes, hooray for the app

 

Quest 4: I'm an adult...somehow

Yes but mainly because I don't do much except work at the moment ;)

Day 4   OR   where I already ran out of witty alternativ-titles

Day mainly consisted of working on my project, coffee, packing for the festival and running in the evening. Forgot to take food pics but it was chicken with sweet and sour sauce and mayonnaise for lunch and a salat with chicken and pizza bread for dinner. Will skip the run tomorrow because there is still some shopping and packing needed for the festival and also I have a spontaneous "kinda date" later so no running tomorrow but I will do project work when I'm not driving :D so I get something done in the end.

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 3"

60 minutes of running done on with 3 x 3minutes fast (trainer said I can go to the limit because it's slow again after that)ended with a average of 6,16min/km that's probably to fast for the marathon distance...

 

Quest 2: Eat okay

Yes really good also made smart choices

 

Quest 3: Keeping the water in check

Yes, hooray for the app

 

Quest 4: I'm an adult...somehow

Yes but didn't finished everything so I will take some with me to the festival so that I can at least tell myself that I could do something ;)

Your food pics are making me so hungry! I guess I better go make some lunch before I eat pie instead...

Have fun!

Really it's like 90% chicken (and will stay like that) ;) so nothing special. If you want to get hungry you should go to @Jonesythread and read a little about the concepts of chocolate tortilla and breakfast tortilla ;)

 

Thank you I will have fun and probably will post some pictures when I'm back :)

Yeah send @SnowOwl to my thread for some bad food habits (the chocolate one not the breakfast one). ;)  I did make Beef & Broccoli in the crock pot and it was amazing.

Days 5 to 11   OR   where was I in the night of Wednesday to Tuesday?

Yes I'm back from GMM (and the preparation days and the obligatory after-festival coma and pizza monday)

To make it short Wednesday to Monday was a big bunch of no's on all the goals... But you know...that's what a festival brings with it ;)

Okay so Graspop Metal Meeting...started really really crappy we arrived in a storm...walked 30minutes with a lot of stuff to the camp ground and then our tent f'in broke...motivation reached 0 there. So since the opportunities we had where find a hotel for the day's that would be really expensive or go back home and try to get a new tent on short notice. So we drove 2,5 hours back home and I had to get my little brother back in the mood to try again the next day...also because I have great friends we instantly had two new throwing tents that we could borrow.

So next try on the next morning and after some driving and chaotic travel we arrived and started with Grand Maggus and from that point it got better every day. My Highlites were: Black Sabbath, Heaven Shall Burn (East Germany Yeah ;) ) but the winner of the festival were Twisted Sister!

MAN

It's there last tour ever and they just destroyed the place...It was soo awesome you can't really describe it (but imagine around 60000 people singing We're not gonna take it with Dee Snider for 20minutes because nobody's willing to stop the party...)

gmmcollage.jpg

(Some of my pictures too show that it was awesome after the bad start)

So monday was spent in a coma, catching up sleep

and that brings us to day 11:

 

Quest 1: “And I will walk 500miles Part 3"

110 minutes of running done 17km...uh my feet hurt

 

Quest 2: Eat okay

Yes but no tracking I will have to start that again tomorrow

 

Quest 3: Keeping the water in check

Yes, hooray for the app

 

Quest 4: I'm an adult...somehow

Yes a lot of work was done...the project is nearing it's end and since I'm a little overachiever that means I have a lot to do...also my capture the flag project is demanding attention...and I will have to catch up on all your threads now...whoa so much to do...better get started

Welcome to the Scouts! I'm also doing a hydration goal, what app are you using? I'm trying out a few and and still deciding what works best for me. Best of luck! 

I'm using "carbodroid" it's really basic but that does it for me :)
