Rurik Harrgath Posted February 10, 2017 Report Share Posted February 10, 2017 Welcome to the Ranger mini-challenge for the February 12th to March 11th period. I want you to take a moment before we begin to think about what kind of attributes your real-life Character class might have (be they Ranger, Monk, or something else entirely not covered by Nerd Fitness Guilds), what abilities they might hone and possess, and which skills or techniques they might focus on to aid in their adventures. With that in mind, browse through the details and rules below to join in on this most Rangerly of mini-challenges for the next challenge period. THE RULES Participation is entirely voluntary, this mini-challenge has only as much impact on your challenge as you decide. Based on the format presented below, you will design a goal of your own choosing to suit each Feat, attempting to Ranger your way through that goal during the course of this mini-challenge. An example is provided below to give you a feel for the nature of each particular Feat. These weekly Feats will be randomly selected each week and you may check-in here to share your accomplishments and successes with your fellow participants. Remember: Don’t sweat the little things. This is an optional and additional mini-challenge running alongside your personal challenge. Step out of your comfort zone for a moment or keep your mini-challenge Feats in line with your current challenge goals. It’s up to you. Have fun! Strength Feat: Whether your truly identity with the Ranger class, or another more strength-based archetype like Warrior or Barbarian, strength is of utmost importance. Members around here are strong and can regularly be found pushing for a new PR, hunting for that next push-up or pull-up milestone, swinging a sledgehammer or working with the next heavier kettlebell. Ranger Feat: Like any class-based video game your character class determines your abilities; in real life the skills we are born with can similarly be expanded upon over the course of a lifetime. Use this week to build up your repertoire of skills by either working on a weakness or displaying your prowess with a technique you’ve already mastered. Distance Feat: Love it or hate it, terrain must needs be covered from time to time. Whether your chosen locomotion is running, rucking, swimming, or rowing (among others), this is your speed or endurance based feat; select something that covers major distance or serves to improve your overall conditioning and fitness. Recovery Feat: Most characters feature some form of self-healing, rested experience from sitting still or visiting an Inn, or health point regeneration boosted by food and beverage. For the final Feat of the mini-challenge we will look back on what we have accomplished, celebrate our victories, and focus on rehabilitating our bodies and minds using yoga or stretching, ROMWOD, meditation, or any healing techniques you prefer. EXAMPLES Strength Feat: Add one additional weightlifting workout to my schedule this week. Ranger Feat: This week I will practice my quilting techniques by dedicating 30 minutes on 3 days. Distance Feat: Complete two sessions of Couch To 5k this week. Recovery Feat: Active recovery to heal my aching muscles by adding a 5 minute stretching routine every morning. Quote OPTIONAL SIDE QUEST Let us know a little bit about your real-life Character; who are they, what kind of class it might be (even though we're squarely within the Ranger guild, or visiting the Rangers, here), which skills and attributes you want to work on that will bring you closer to this ideal, any particular inspiration that drives you toward this paragon, etc. Consider this an entirely optional but wholly amusing deviation from the usual highway of health and fitness, putting the nerd back in Nerd Fitness for a couple of minutes to remind us why we all originally found our way here. For inspiration and an idea of what I'm talking about, take a peek at the Incipient Order of Taggers and consider tagging your challenge (and future challenges) with a tag that represents your character inspiration! 9 Quote [Level ??] Rurik, Templar-Marshal Class: Paladin of the Order of the Sacred Flame (Conquest Paladin/Champion) BRUTALITY 11 | FINESSE 10 | VIGOR 11 | INSIGHT 14 | WILL 13 Equipment: Leather armor, questing longsword, and adventurer's pack with alchemist's kit.
