Myrik goes the distance


Myrik

Recommended Posts

Grinder and the gang loaded up in “Phantom”.  When Drone started her up Myrik learned how she earned that name, not a single sound came from the tank.  “Best of luck you two.  Remember we need 15 minutes to get out of the city.”  “You got it boss we will set the timers for 25 minutes and harry them from the roof.  Myrik grab that long rifle from the weapons locked and set the timer on the kit for 25 minutes and then head to the roof I’ll be up after I set the other timers.”  Myrik grabbed the rifle, set the time and made his way to the roof.  Once up there he set up the rifle like Shade taught him and kept look out for the Orks. 

He heard them before seeing them.  Several on foot came around the corner hooting and hollering when the turrets popped free of their hidden alcoves and ripped into the Orks with abandon only a heartless machine could muster.  The column of Orks stopped just outside of the detection range of the turrets.  That didn’t stop Myrik from putting several down from the roof top before Shade appeared on the roof across from him with an assault cannon. With a clear view of the mob of Orks hiding just out of Myrik and the drone’s sights she unleashes the weapons righteous fury on the Orks when the tank came into view.  Shade trained her sights on the tanks main cannon and drained the magazine, dropping behind cover she reloads the magazine checks her watch for time and puts a whole other magazine into the tank before calling out to Myrik “Time to go, cut the power to the turrets and head towards the east I’ll be right behind you.” 

Myrik did exactly as directed and heads towards the eastern edge of town looking back once to see Shade making her way towards him with two rucksacks and a 2 extra rifles.  Just as she reaches Myrik the base and the whole block surrounding it go up in a large explosion followed by a second smaller one.  “Well there tank is down, let hope Lone Star pins the damage and deaths on the Orks.  Okay time to get going, we got about three hours of good light and I would like to be at least 15 miles from here before sunset. Here is your pack it has everything you’re going to need, also these packs share a link if we get separated we can find each other by using the link in the top pouch.  You got all that? Good time to get going.”

 

 

 

Okay now for the Challenge:

 

Lift:

My work schedule has changed an I am now on 12 hour shifts for the next 2 months at least which will allow me to workout in the base gym for an hour and a half every shift.  I need to pick a weight lifting routine that will work for me but once i do I will follow it until the end of the month.

 

Run/Swim/Bike:

I need to keep with the cardo so these 3 things when I can.  My goal will be 15 miles this month

 

Read:

I picked American Gods and will be reading that this month.

 

Others:

Keep track of my calories still even though I am going into a bulking phase just to stay in the routine

Get my dashboard lights fixed.

Find out why my bedroom is hotter than the rest of the house.

Work on meal prep.

Week Zero Alpha has come and gone.  I got lots of lifting in this week but no set routine.  Lots of curls, Cable pull downs for the Tri's and seated rows.  This weekend has been a long one 3 12 hour watches in a row, and if i go down to the gym again tonight that will be 3 days in the gym in a row.  If i do go down I will be doing Low rep high weight since i have the next 2 days off and can take both days as rest days before 2 more 12 hour watches and 2 more days in the gym.  Have done much reading yet but I will start soon.  No mileage added for this week hopefully next week will be more temperate and i can put some miles behind me.

So I did decide to go down to the gym.  Did Preacher EZ bar curls(65#), Rope handled triceps push-downs(150#), Seated Cable rows(225#) and Bench press(75#), all but the bench press was done at my current 5 round max.   I think my arms will be dead when I wake up later this afternoon.  I'll be adding more to the story tonight or tomorrow night.

Didn't get around to adding more story yet but I will.  Yesterday was a great day has some good friends come over, did water play in the backyard with the kids; Water balloons squirt guns, kiddie pools sprinkler under the trampoline.  Had Burgers for dinner, Ice Cream and Rice Crispy treats for dessert (I ate to many Rice Crispy treats).  Today and Tomorrow I am working my last set of Night Shift for 2 weeks, next few weeks I'll be working a Swing Shift 9am to 9pm, then its back to nights for 2 more weeks.  

 

 Tonight I will be going down to the gym and get lifting in.  Not sure what I will do probably the same things i did last weekend

 

Dumbbell Preacher Curls

Triceps Presses

Crusher Grip Squats

Seated Rows.

Alternating front raises 10@15#/10@20#

Also did a Bicep finisher from Athlean-x and oh my God i could barely lift my arms

 

Negative chin up for as long as you could

Elastic band curls to failure

and finally do as many curls as you can using your 10 rep max weight

Complete this as many times as needed to complete a total of 10 reps of your 10 rep max or until you can't lift your arms anymore.  It took me 4 rounds to complete it.

Haven't been very good about updating this month.  So here is a life/goal update:

 

Goals

Weights are going good, haven't done any cardio yet I might get a bike ride in tomorrow morning before it gets to hot and humid.  I'm still tracking my food but stopped using myfitnesspal and might need to start again just to see if i need to increase my intake on workout day. Only read the first chapter of American Gods, might get some reading in today if work isn't to crazy.

 

Life has been good my youngest is talking up a storm and just learned to ride her sisters scooter yesterday and is so proud.  my kids swing set gets delivered on the 19th and I get to put it together, this should be fun.  Work has been rough because of lack of qualified people my schedule has been 12 hour work days with a 2 on 2 off sliding weekends schedule and it being summer the amount of search and rescue cases we have had is up, had 5 yesterday all within the space of an hour.

Okay now for the Challenge:

 

Lift:

My work schedule has changed an I am now on 12 hour shifts for the next 2 months at least which will allow me to workout in the base gym for an hour and a half every shift.  I need to pick a weight lifting routine that will work for me but once i do I will follow it until the end of the month.

 

Didn't find a routine I liked but made one that worked for me.  Worked out every watch except one due to how busy it was.  I give myself an A for this month.

 

Run/Swim/Bike:

I need to keep with the cardo so these 3 things when I can.  My goal will be 15 miles this month

 

F no other way to say it.  I didn't run, bike or swim.  I could make excuses as to why but there is no point I failed to do it some will be carrying it over to next month.

 

Read:

I picked American Gods and will be reading that this month.

 

I started reading it really good but I'm only a quarter of the way through so I have a lot more reading to do.  C

 

Others:

Keep track of my calories still even though I am going into a bulking phase just to stay in the routine  - Kinda

Get my dashboard lights fixed. - Nope

Find out why my bedroom is hotter than the rest of the house. - Nope

Work on meal prep. - Kinda
