Third Times the Charm? 08/06 - 09/17 Challenge Thread


Recommended Posts

My fitness goals for this challenge are simple.

  1. Finish the Run Around the Square 5K in less than 25min on 08/25.
  2. Train to finish Great Race 10K in less than 50min on 09/30.
  3. Lose 3 pounds to get down to 168 pounds.

My life goal is the same as in my previous challenges:

Stay on schedule for finishing my dissertation.

Here's my weight loss progress from the start of May through July:

It's in intelligent systems. The tentative title is Contextual Outlier Detection in Sets of Protein Structure Models Derived from X-Ray Crystallography.

It's taken a long-ass time to get this close to finishing. So long, in fact, that I had to get an extension from the dean's office. After taking far too long to defend my topic, I now have the pleasure of getting everything finished in 18 months. Joy.

So, don't be jealous. ;)

Holy mouthfull, that sentence was far too complicated! Its times like these that I'm glad to be an art ed student... yikes! Anyway, best of luck with your goals, they seem pretty straightforward so just keep training smart and I'm sure you'll nail em!

Sorry for the lack of updates (or interaction with anyone else's challenges). Life got really busy. Here's how I did during the second half of the challenge:

Here's how I did over the whole challenge:

  2. Remains to be seen. I've been unable to train due to illness for most of the last four weeks.
