Swinging_Jarnbjorn Posted July 18, 2016 Report Share Posted July 18, 2016 I am Odinson_Rising, and I am not worthy. But I will be. I can't say how soon, but I will be worthy again. My hammer still lies before me, begging to be lifted. Although I can't lift it yet, I can make progress. Let's get this party started. With the last challenge, I focused on "mise en place," the concept of having a place for everything. My focus deteriorated at the midpoint, as it often does, and instead of a victory, I became the proud owner of an opportunity to improve. So here we go. Let's revisit the previous challenge, and this time, let's see what we can do better. THE EPIC QUEST: General: I will become strong enough to survive the apocalypse, and further, I will become strong enough to save my loved ones, to protect them and keep them alive. More specific: By 12.31.16, I will be able to run 5 miles without stopping, be able to climb a rope, be able to do pull ups and chin ups in sets of 5 or more, be able to squat at least my body weight, be able to deadlift at least 1.5x my bodyweight, be able to bench press my bodyweight, and be able to scale a 6 foot wall unassisted. Challenge goals: 1. I will, nightly, lay out all gear that I will need for the next day. This includes work clothes, exercise gear, books, paperwork, notepads, pens, lunch box, literally everything that I’ll be using in the next day. I will have it ready to go before my head hits the pillow. 2. I will, also nightly, lay out my plan for the next day, and place it with my gear. This includes my planned workout, my “big 3” actions for the day, and a basic agenda for how the day is intended to go, overall goals, shopping lists, and anything else that’s pertinent. 3. I will fill (nightly) and carry (daily) water bottles with me, ensuring that I have enough water to meet my current 2L water goal for each day. 4. I will practice Mise En Place in my day to day life, using the landing/launch pad approach, so that my everyday carry (EDC) items are ready for me each morning. It’s time to retire the “where are my keys” game. I suck at it. So there we go. Another challenge brings opportunity for growth. Best of luck, Rebels. Let’s go to work. -Odinson_Rising 1 Quote Life is full of hard times and good times. Learn from everything you can. Swinging_Jarnbjorn: Lv 1 Asgardian Ranger Focus Up! My current challenge.
