    Assassin in training

    I never really liked doing sports up until I got 16 years old. I was always more of a study and stay indoors kind of person. But I was never chubby or not kind of fit. By the start of this summer I got fed up with learning and other very brain-needing activities and I found parkour and I thought I should start training for it. It went pretty well (instead of 1 pull-up I could do 6 by the start of August). Then, on the 21st of August, I broke my finger. On 7th of September, it had a surgery. That brought me down. No push-ups of pull-ups for me. Today I did my first knee push-ups and even regular push-ups. I gotta say, that my "push-up muscles" are rusty. My finger doesn't flex well at the moment and it's always in a crooked shape (like a hook) and it won't go neither straight nor can I shape it into a fist. I've been training more intensively for a week now, I thought I should start recording my progress here also. Right now I'm using the Assassin training template for composing my days.

    ---


    Sports I did: Volleyball (Half a year. Me and that game do NOT get along), Dodgeball (For a few years. I actually liked it. Then the teacher thought, that it was too childish for us...), Archery (I do it every now and then, but not regularly), Light athletics (For half a year. Ilnesses, injuries and other stuff that got in the way)

    Sports I do: Mountain skiing (since I was 7, I'm loving it), horse riding (since I was 15), everyday training

    Sports I'd like to do: Rock climbing, parkour, running, archery (more actively), knife throwing/fighting, some form of martial arts, swordfighting

    Chilly weather, wind. Did some exercises for the finger in the evening. The fun part! That finger doesn't feel temperature. Cardio Crunch was a challenge (in the end), other things were quite okay

    Well good luck to me, because I'm a lazy perfectionist and I lose interest in activites pretty fast.

            Grinding the same 3 workouts every morning starts to become boring... Should I change them?

              I've been researching and looking and done some thinking about what template should I follow and what should I do in order to achieve my goal. I have to have mobility, agility, flexibility but also strength and endurance for both moving with bursts and moving with stable speed. Somewhere in November I'll complete 30 DAY WALKABAOUT and FOUNDATION LIGHT, so I'll go to FROM WALKING TO RUNNING and FOUNDATION challenges and programs. Since it's October, nearly November, then the weather is cold, wet and windy and I have a tendency to catch something not really pleasant with this kind of weather, no matter how well I dress. And I live 15km from a city where I could run indoors. The weather remains like this until mid-April.
              I think I'll start following the Scout template for now and complete FOUNDATION, FROM WALKING TO RUNNING, THE LONG RUN, 30 DAYS OF CARDIO BLAST and 90 DAYS OF ACTION in that period of time. When I finish the Long Run challenge, then I'll start using Zombies, run! app, which I found in one of these forums here.
              In the summer I'll be doing RUNNER PRIME, AGE OF PANDORA and HERO'S JOURNEY for sure. And in the summer I'll be using the Ranger template.
              I've understood that I love HIIT and Cardio exercises and workouts.

              ---

              Since my morning routine so far has bored me to the point of me thinking maybe I should sleep a little longer, then I'll be changing it. It all begins with Warm up (okay, didn't change that), then Wake Up & Make It Happen (since I have school and I'd like to sleep a little longer, I'm grateful for a workout that doesn't take that much time) and then Backup & Restore (yes, even the Wake Up & Connect bored me). If this routine becomes boring, I'll search all the morning/short workouts and select one randomly from them.

              ---

              And combat stuff... I think it's time to start more seriously with the combat workouts too.
              If only I had that much time in the following months... the autumn break is coming to an end and I have school (which wouldn't itself be a bad thing), which means I have to depend on busses, trips, homework, daylight etc.
              But. I. Will. Make. It. Work.

              ---

              It has been fun so far in DAREBEE and in the Hive It's nice to meet you all

                    So, in the morning I was in a rush and I forgot to do Warm Up. Let me tell you, my legs hated me for it. I remembered that I forgot something the moment I completed Wake Up & Make It Happen and when my legs started to feel weird and even painful. Yeah... moral of the story - never ever forget to do Warm Up.

                      Today was cold as hell. It wasn't so much about degrees, it was the humidity that made it so cold.

                          I have been very tired lately. Been up late and woken up early. And snow came.

                              The weather is beautiful. And dangerous. Schoolbus moved at what seemed like 20 km/h because the roads were so icy and slippery.

                              Evening: FOUNDATION LIGHT Day 17 - lvl. 3 - 30 seconds rest between sets

                              I took my brother (33.5kg) onto my back and did 20 squats, then I played rollercoaster. He was on my back, my feet were on the ground at one spot all the time and I moved my upper body swiftly around (to the sides and also folded forward so that he was about to roll down). I also ran around with him on my back. Did it around 5-10 minutes.

                              All those things have become easy to me. I have to think of something to make it harder so my body wouldn't get lazy.
