    Millie's Log

    Yeah, I'm extremely creative with titles.

    I first heard of Darebee years and years ago and thought it was cool, but I never did any of the workouts. I know it's a great alternative to joining a gym but ironically it wasn't until I did regular group fitness classes - I did F45 for a number of years, and I still go to Orangetheory and 9Round - that got me back here. The familiarity I have already with HIIT and most of the moves helped greatly.

    What I like about Darebee is how a lot of the workouts can be done with no equipment. I have a sedentary job, sometimes I have several standby periods of half-hours every shift where I'm required to basically remain in my booth - not an open plan office, thank God - but I don't have to do any work, per se. Darebee is great for those times! I can get my Daily Dare in and the monthly challenges, and whichever random workouts take my fancy.

    What I *love* about Darebee are all the story aspects. That really keeps me engaged.

    Currently doing:

    Age of Pandora - on chapter 11 at the moment. Love it.
    Avatar Upgrade - printed out the pdf in booklet form. Done two workouts so far.

          >> Chapter 15. Pick a job, picked going to the mines for 800 overhead punches. Did 300/800 punches. Decided to be less ambitious - Level III is too much distance - so down to Level II going forward. Traveled 6.4km round-trip.
          >> Picked up 400 knee-to-elbows job @ City Pits. Need 2.5km to get to City Pits for said job, then City Ruins for the next chapter.

            >> Finished off the 800 punches. 110/400 knee-to-elbows. 2.1km to go the City Pits/Ruins. Is it cheating if I start on the job before I get to the actual place?? I guess it is, but I wanna save time...thoughts?

                      >> Day 7, just. The alternate arm/leg raised plank hold nearly did me in. Waaaay harder than I anticipated.

                      Gave the Daily Dare a go, but could barely do a couple of reverse grip push-ups (and I only needed five!) so I think it's not right to count it. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day!
