Welcome to another round of Daily Dare!

Big thanks to @WolfDreamer for running the last round. And, of course, a big thanks to our friends over at http://darebee.com for posting these challenges.

 

We start today, Sunday 29, and run until the end of this 5 week challenge, May 2.

2 points will be rewarded for completing the challenge of the day, and another point if you complete it with extra credit.

 

I'll try to post the challenge of the day here in the thread, but if I'm too slow to do it, or straight out forget, you can always find the daily dare on darabee's front page, and in their forums, and archives. See links below.

 

Because I like emojis, please report a successful daily dare with ✔️ and, if you do it with extra credit, add a 🐝 (honeybee) as well :) 

How many points do you aim for?

Still working on my score-keeping script, so it's a little rough around the edges. Please be gentle 😀

The hardest part wasn't even keeping balance, the hardest part was keeping foot of the elevated leg high up enough on the balancing leg!

You are welcome. It was a lot of fun. I'm glad to see you bringing it back.

 

Got the first challenge done. I learned that I need to work on balance for my left leg. Right was easy but left not so much.

I'm in. Gotta find some way to keep active during the quarantine! :D
First challenge completed with extra, even though it was a little tougher than I expected. ✔️

Nice to have you! Where're you from? How strict is your quarantine? And well done on completing the challenge!

All of my classes are only online, most non-essential stores and workplaces are closed. In public, you must keep a distance of at least around 1.5 meters to strangers, and gatherings of more than 10 people are banned - this is punishable by a fairly high fine. We're also heavily encouraged not to use public transport and not to go anywhere at all if it can be avoided.
Supermarkets have plastic gloves in the door, and lines on the floor showing minimum distance in the line at the cashier.
We can go outside and even though advised not to, we can also move freely inside the country. They have closed down many walking/running paths around my area though, as they are not wide enough for people to keep proper distance.
So all in all, pretty strict, but not as strict as in some places. Worst part is that I'm slowly losing my mind, staying at home all the time.

How about you?

I'm in Sweden, so still not that strict quarantine. Everyone else on this planet seems to hate us for it, but we'll see how it all turns out...

 

Personally I'm used to working from home on my own, so the loneliness isn't getting to me as much as I've understood that it's getting to others. I hear others complaining about cabin fever and things, but I don't feel any of those tendencies yet :) I also live out in the woods, so not really used to seeing a lot of people around.

I've been working on a little helper script to read through the posts in this thread and calculate the score for everyone. Just got the first version ready. Scroll up and you'll see it in the second post in this thread.

 

And here's a screenshot

The script just dumps the raw data for now. Will make it post something prettier later

I was looking forward to the darebee PvP and then forgot about it. Whoops... But here I am now!

Climber taps:  ✔️🐝 I need to work my core more regularly.

I was wondering where you went :)  Happy to have you here!

I'm in.  We can still get out freely for exercise and necessities and I do already do backyard calisthenics, but mixing in new things is always fun.
