Mission Log: Welcome to the Rebellion

The cantina in Ord Mantell was subdued. No surprise really, thanks to the frequent fighting between the Rebellion, Empire and anyone just plain looking for a fight. But leave was leave, so Gar sat in a small booth nestled in a corner of the cantina and nursed her drink. She kept a sharp eye out in case of trouble, but was blissfully undisturbed until a stranger in hooded robes invited themselves to the booth. 

 

"Greetings," Gar said carefully in basic. Never hurt to be polite. Even so, her hand twitched as she thought of the blaster at her belt. 

 

"I hear you are a pilot..." the figure began, voice soft and features indistinguishable in the low light. 

 

"Might be," Gar shrugged, "Why do you ask?"

 

"I have a job for a pilot. Especially one who can handle sensitive information." The figure slid a datachip across the table, but kept their hand on it - clearly waiting for a response. 

 

The first thought that crossed Gar's mind was how under-trained she was for this. Was a quiet night in an off-base cantina too much to ask for? She glanced at the datachip, seeing the Alliance Starbird faintly painted on a corner of the chip. 

 

Clenching her fists over the table, she looked at the mysterious figure. "Alright, I'll bite. What's the job?"

 

Tasks: Level One

  • Well-Rested [sleep 7+ hours/night]

Level One Mission Update

 

With the dawn of a new solar cycle Gar finds herself still on Ord Mantell, consulting a data pad. Her U-Wing was still grounded with at least one engine needing repair. From the schematics it looked like the hull had taken significant damage also.

 

"Looks like we'll be on Ord Mantell for a while longer, Jamo." What Gar would not give to have her dependable X-Wing right now instead of the old transport. But they had to deal with the present, and the U-Wing's size would be crucial to the next mission.

 

Gar's companion, a J-series astromech droid designated J4-M0 whined softly in reply, before letting out a series of beeps.

"The datachip?" Gar asked, "Yeah I guess we can take a look. Did you finish the check for viruses?" Gar looked back down at her data pad while J4-M0 streamed the analysis of the contents. "Hm, there are preparations we can get out of the way while we wait for the ship repairs... Might as well get started then."

 

A Fresh Start

  • Yoga with Adriene: Revolution - 31 days of yoga
  • Fitbit - Track daily steps, water, exercise, etc.
  • Rations - Bring lunch to work at least 4 days/week

Level One Mission Results

 

Gar surveyed her ship. Finally, finally the repairs were completed and she could get off this blasted planet. Not that Ord Mantell is terrible... just that being unexpectedly grounded for a full lunar cycle affected even the most stable pilots. And Rebellion pilots weren't known for their stability in the best of times. J4-M0 whistled that his scans of the ship were done. All supplies were loaded and the ship's crew were ready to depart. 

 

Oh, and the small fact that a tracking beacon had been planted among the supplies. Gar was willing to bet that one of the crew was an Imperial informant. But her daily meditation had granted Gar patience - the informant would reveal themselves in time. For now there was little Gar or J4-M0 could do but be wary until the informant slipped up. 

 

"Alright!" Gar called out to the crew, "Who else is ready to get off this blasted rock?"

Step Back: Emphasize meal planning for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - aim for "5 a day" fruit/veg consumption (more veg than fruit though....)

 

Other Notes

I seem to do well with the "do X every day" goals rather than X times a week. Continue as planned but continue to monitor this trend and figure out how to leverage for the future.

Upcoming Races:

 

Reassessing the "Long Term Quests" (August 6, 2017)

 

Mobility: Attempted to work on specific mobility areas during challenge #6. Method was too fractured and inconsistent attempts to practice led to me being frustrated

  • New Strategy - Continue routine yoga. Consider purchasing GMB elements program.

 

Races: Completed July 2017 5K. Now I have a benchmark "race time" to track against. Plans for 5K OCR in September and Star Wars 1/2 Marathon in 2018 are..... going to change. We changed vacation plans for September that conflicts with the Valhalla Mud Run. And I will not have vacation to spare for going out of state for one of the Disney Half Marathons.

  • New Strategy - Look for other local runs of various distances (5K, 10K, Half) to sign up for that do not require travelling more than a couple hours by car.
