2018 – InnerPeace 2 – Fighter’s Codex

A great start to the year in January and so now I move into deep maintenance phase.  As of this writing, I have worked out 302 consecutive days.  All new territory and it now starting to feel familiar.  I laid off the guitar playing for about 45 days now and so I will be starting it back up.  I will have to make a few adjustments to accommodate, because I think I might have a bit too much on my plate.  I also make significant push to Idaho and doing and while I have been marking time with the Garmin Step Challenge (sticking at the 85k mark) and doing fine there, I have started a couples challenge with some family couples.  Don’t know how well that will workout yet, but I will give it a go.

(Kept from previous foreword) – Additionally, I have added a couple layers of complexity or demand to my workout.  First, I am religiously sticking to DareBee and the Daily Dare; I am also, keeping the preliminaries.  Second, I have added a consecutive component – so, starting with the end of IronBorn (9 April 2017), I have worked consecutively.  I intend to push for 60 straight day, then see if I can get to 90.  So far I am enjoying it and my body seems to be rising to the occasion.  I caught the flu a few day before the end of the last phase (around May 2017) – I worked through it and was back up in only a couple of days.  It appears push through and forcing my body to continue working, I was able to push the flu out of my way.  I am also continuing my virtual push to OKC via Benton.  I am really enjoying that but I will have to pick up the mileage here in the next phase as I am running out of time. Keep leaning forward.
