The Adventurer's are READY TO ADVENTURE!

 

As you sit down to begin your day, an envelope next to your cup of morning refreshment catches your eye. Inside there is a note:

 

Going on adventures with friends is fun

Doing it alone is no good in the long run.

 

So pack your bags and a grab a mate

There is so much to do and the work is great.

 

The week is short - we've much to do peeps

So meet me in the city that never sleeps.

 

Week 1 Challenge: Pick a friend, any friend - from any guild other than the Adventurers. It can be someone existing you follow or someone entirely new. The goal is to have your own accountability buddy for this challenge. Once they have accepted, your goal by Friday is to run / walk / job a combined 5 miles. If you have trouble finding a new buddy, let me know (via pm is fine) and I will try to match you up with someone I know of on the forums. I will have a Google docs sign in sheet available and linked on the thread this evening. Good luck!

Depends. I haven't had coffee yet, is the deadline two days from now? 

 

eta: I mean I would love to but there are things in my way depending on timing. 

 

edited again: I'm confused. We're supposed to do the 5 miles together right? Or am I just cheering you on while you do it?

5 miles together. So one person can do all 5 miles with the other one cheering or you can split it up however works for your group. The big thing is supporting each other and being involved in the community! 

 

If you want to get technical, the deadline is through Saturday, so you have 4 days (timezone depending) to get in all the miles and pick your partner.

Week 2

 

Week 2 Challenge: Do something new! Try a new food, play a new game, sing some karaoke - it doesn't matter as long as it's new to you! 

 

@fleaball What would you like to do for this one? I think the Spartan sprint totally counts for me (even though my race is Sunday). If that doesn't count @Sylvaa, please let me know.

I think it totally counts! Also, @Plazmotic going to the OCR facility near her would count too (nudge, nudge).

following! now to figure out what week this is... 

 

We're on Week 2. :) But because you are a week late, you have been given a penalty and must complete both challenges (Weeks 1 and 2)--once you find a teammate, of course.

How do we do this @Taddea Zhaan ?

 

I have no idea! lol. Looks like the Week 1 goal was to get in 5 miles in some form and Week 2 was to try something new. 

 

I did complete my first 5 mile hike on Sunday but I don't think I should count that because it wasn't for the mini-challenge. I could plan two 2.5 mile hikes for next week and try to do each one in a new park that I haven't tried before. That would get in the distance and involve trying something new. 

 

Also we are going camping this weekend and there is a springs I want to visit but you have to walk down 300 stairs, so going up 300 stairs would definitely be new. ;) I'm a little scared and I must say as a powerlifter, my cardio for stairs is not that great. Also, @Grumble said if I did the stairs he would do some too.

Don't worry about making up the missed week. My main goal with this was to re-start the Adventurer's mini and hopefully get people more engaged - so just start with Week 2. 

 

Focus on trying something new - the stairs sounds like it would in the spirit! You don't have to do the SAME new thing - just encourage each other (either here or in respective threads) to do the new thing. 

 

Side note: every time someone talks about a warrior doing cardio, I think of that picture from the nerd meet-up where Flex was bent over, out of breath from the hike and it makes me laugh.

I definitely didn't think we had to do the same new thing lol. I would never suggest someone else do 300 steps for fun. >_>
