Two more goals in 2014

2014-01-03 18:32:48 by Nijsse

With 10 weeks left this year, I would like to achieve two more goals. For some reason, posting about goals here seems to help. The first one is a speedrun challenge of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Speedrunning is a lot of fun, even though I don't have much time to do it. The category I'm running is 'No major glitches', by far the most popular category. My second goal is a weight thing. I lost a bunch of weight this year, but I'm going to try to push it a little further.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Right now, my personal best is 1:41:09. My goal for the first half of 2014 was < 1:45, but I've improved a bit since. My goal is to get a < 1:35 before the end of the year. This should be doable, as I'm still wasting a ton of time using safety strats. My Light World is pretty decent, my Dark World sucks after Blind. If I'm able to complete this challenge, I would be top 50 on ZeldaSpeedRuns. If I'm good enough to be in the top 25, I will stream runs and will compete in weekly races on Speedrunslive, so I can actually submit a run. We'll see what happens.

I'm playing on an emulator so that gives me a few disadvantages. Speedrunning is so much fun that I don't care too much about the fact that I will never compete amongst the best. Getting a sub 1:35 run will be difficult enough as it is.

Weight challenge

At the beginning of this year I was 213 pounds. Before my trip to New York it was 187 pounds, and right now I weigh roughly 184 pounds. Before the end of the year, I would like it to be sub 176 pounds (<80 kg). That would be decent for my height (close to 6 feet). This means I have to lose another 8 pounds. It should be doable, but I'm starting to have last-years destructive lifestyle again. Hopefully posting about it here will help me a bit.

I'll post updates about both goals on a weekly basis!


54 Days left: Yay, new PB in ALttP: 1.38.34. I'm pretty happy with this run. My Light World was pretty decent as always. My Dark World was okay, but my execution could be a lot better. Also, I'm going to drop my fairy safety strat. This kind of sucks since I don't have much time for runs, but I shouldn't need it if I play okay. It saves around a minute, which is the important part. Damn this game is fun to speedrun, even though I'm not very good at it.

As for the weight challenge, I didn't really make any progress. It's still somewhere between 182.5 and 185 pounds. With my current lifestyle I don't think I'll become much lighter, so I should working on it a bit more.

52 Days left: Lost 2 runs today to Trinexx, the boss of Turtle Rock. I was ahead ~1 minute both times. This kind of sucks as it's the last real obstacle before Ganon, but I should just practise a bit more, instead of just doing runs.
