Elennare Posted April 19, 2017 Report Share Posted April 19, 2017 Edit: Added theme coolness Last challenge went ok. Not super well, but not terrible, especially when you consider how much of it either I or someone in my family was sick for. It did point out to me how much I need to work on improving my sleep, though! Which brings me to this challenge : I'm a Space Marine! I moved from Aspirant to Neophyte in February, and very soon (most likely in the middle of May), I will get promoted to full Battle Brother. Assuming I can impress the Sergeants enough, that is (there's 4 of them thinking about taking me for their squads). If I'm going to impress anyone, though, I've got to make sure I keep up my training. So. On to my challenge goals! Goal the first: A space marine can go for two weeks without sleeping, but we also know we need to take good care of ourselves when we're not out on a mission. If I want to do well at the trials, I need to make sure I'm well rested. So, I will get to bed by 9:30 every night I don't have derby. Get to bed ASAP every derby night. Goal the second: Train for battle. I have an evaluation of my progress soon, and a real mission shortly thereafter. After that brush with the Nurgle cultists, I really need to spend more time training. Get to practice! 6 practices/scrimmages over the course of the challenge. Also, keep working with the trainer. 4 workouts over the course of the challenge. Goal the third: The endurance of a space marine is legendary. Mine...is not. This is unacceptable. Get a minimum of 13k steps /steps equivalent exercise per day. Aim to have at least 9k of that be from walking/running, and try to go run intervals twice a week. Bonus for meeting this goal through the end of June: $100 gift card (thanks employer!). (To explain in real-world words what I've got going on, last February I passed evals for my roller derby league to become eligible to be drafted onto one of our home teams (we have 4). They decided to hold off on the draft until after the next evals. Which are on May 14th. On June 17th, we are starting our season, and I will be skating in my first real bout. I am equal parts excited and terrified. Also, my place of employment does a yearly exercise challenge that runs for 2 months, which will be starting on May 1. We can win gift cards if we meet the goal. There are 3 levels, and I want to get the top one.) Handy dandy progress tracker: To bed on time: 0/28 Practices: 0/6 Trainer Workouts: 0/4 Step goal met: 0/28 Times gone running: 0 Also, I highly doubt I need to say this here, so apologies in advance if it seems rude (and in that case, it's almost certainly not directed at you), but I've run into too many ass-hats, both in person and on-line to risk not saying it. If you have an issue with the idea of female space marines, I don't want to hear about it. I'm not going to discuss it, period. Go somewhere else. 4 Quote Wood Elf Waywatcher Mandalorian (Assassin/Ranger hybrid) Link to comment
