7230: I surrender

I surrendered yesterday with a heavy heart. Since July 20th, 2015, it has been a long year of ups and downs. I’ve made some massive improvements in strength, and form, for the activities I’d chosen. But I still have much work left to do —…

In the history of bad ideas…

Today I passed 6,000. So it turns out it is just barely possible to pull this 10k thing out of the hole. Friday, instead of 50 reps of things, I kept plugging away and got to 120. (140 bar precisions as I had 20 to…

Embrace Challenge

Not sure where this is going; no way I can reach 10,000 by the one year deadline… but I’m not quitting!

Seriously, this again?

Two weeks ago I started back into putting some numbers on the board. But this just-past-week I hurt my back. Tuesday I did 80 bar precisions (an easy number), but my back was feeling tired. Then Wednesday, I was really pushing it. No, actually, all…

Well, not standing, but keeping…

Another setback and refusal to quit

About three weeks ago, I over-did it… raking in the yard. :^/ I’m presuming that was just the final straw on top of everything else I’ve been doing. At that time, I paused all my 10K workouts, but have continued training parkour, running, and even…

5,000

5,000. five thousand. FIVE. THOUSAND!!! So excited to be half way through the numbers of my year-long project. I have about 110 days remaining to do the second 5,000 reps of all the activities. But at this point, it is now possible to do 120…
