Extra: Challenge Updates
Good afternoon 🙂
I thought it was about time I gave you some updates on the challenges I keep taking up!
Firstly: the 100 push ups challenge.
This one is not actually going as fast as it a) should be 2) I planned. However, I am happy with my progress. I took up the challenge unable to do a complete full press-up on my toes…In fact I was much further from it than I thought. So I was doing incline press ups. I still am but I have moved down a step om my stairs and started the challenge again. when I get to a reasonable number at this level. I will move down another step. I am considerably better at press ups than I was so I am happy 😀
Second: Walking to Mordor
See that little red line there on the map…that is how far I have got! See Mordor all the way over there on the right…that is where I have to get to. Yes I know, it looks crazy! It also looks like I have gone no distance at all…but that little red line there is actually 231 miles! I have walked / danced / run 231 mile since November, not too bad, but still a long long way to Mordor! Nothing for it but to carry on though, there is a ring that needs destroying and a world to save after all!
As you can see, some of my fellowship is progressing faster than others, I am not in the lead any more, which has set of my competitive spirit and I am doing my level best to catch up! I am walking every lunchtime, whether I remember to put it in my daily updates or not. Unless there is a torrential downpour, I go out for a walk. I am aiming for Rivendell (458 miles) before easter!
Project progress in General!
First and foremost I feel so much better it is hard to express! I can now run for multiple minutes and go for 4 km with very few walk breaks. I can Dance 13+ dances in a row without falling over, I can do more than one dance in a row at a Dance out in a mask without falling over and I can keep up with the springy fast people a lot of the time!
I can do TRX pikes, I can do cartwheels I can almost do handstands and I have enough confidence to believe that someone somewhere might take me seriously as a personal trainer one day!
Although weight loss wasn’t my primary goal…of course it was something I wanted…and I can say that I have now lost exactly 2 stone (28lbs or 12.7kg)
I apologise for the December photo, it is the best I have at the moment…
