I figure if it's done before Hammi posts the next mini, it counts...I'm on my way right now!

Oh, team, we are almost to 50 with Sandylion's distance added into the total! I'm done in for the day, but will try to get some miles in tomorrow morning, hopefully before Hammlin rolls us over to week two.

 

The multipliers are as updated as they are going to be. For now. The geek in me started to break everything down further and got through biking and gave up at running. It was getting too complicated to convert METS, which is meant to compare intensity between activities based on time, to multipliers for distances. Running speeds, terrain, etc. all come into play. So, the runners are probably getting a little bit of an edge, but oh well. They've put their time in!

add another 1.4 miles to my total for me... can't open the document on this computer....

 

I finally got my pedometer fixed... and that's the steps I racked up for Sunday.  (not including my run)

@Hammlin - Yay! with Beau's and Sandylion's efforts we just topped 50!

I don't get online during the weekend (it was my friday off so its part of my weekend!) so I got my update in just now....  Logged: 3 mile run on Thursday night along with 1.6 mile run on Sunday and all the rest of my weekend walking.

 

It looks like our team, I'll call us team SOZZIELOU since she is on top, is over the 50 miles too!  Wahoo to sozzielou, mikroftt, midknytowl and trendywendypdx! 

 

Wonder what we found?!?!?

Ok, so for hills + OCR I make that an extra 50%.  Plus the two miles today to and from work (so painful). I'd like to go do another walk around the block or something to bump the numbers to a round figure (you know which one) ... but I can't see it happening somehow! :)

I'd like to say sorry to my team right now for my effort this week. I've caught my first cold in about a year or two and it's kicking my ass. I don't know if I'll be able to go to the gym this week to do much of anything (They seriously frown upon coming in sick) but I'll be knocking off at least 2k per day getting to and from work. I'm really hoping that this week's mini is a little less miles covered and a little more of something else... :)

 

On a side note: anyone got an suggestions for nuking a head cold that don't come from a bowl of soup or a pill box from the pharmacy? I'm all ears! I hate being sick but taking over the counter stuff leaves me sick three times as long as just letting it ride itself out naturally.

I have a friend who swears by drinking some red wine, then going to bed wrapped in warm blankets. I have no idea if it works or not, but I've taken it to heart because...well, red wine!

 

I think the idea is the red wine brings blood flow to the surface and then with the warm blankets it encourages your body to break a sweat and kill the little buggers. Might not be medically sound, but I like the idea...

I'll second booze as a remedy! I find hot toddies are really helpful. Although, I have to go to bed pretty much right away cause they make me sleepy.  The ingredients are hot water, booze (whiskey, usually), honey, lemon/cloves/cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg (whatever you like). You can also apparently make them with tea instead of hot water. Or you can do it the cheater way and make NeoCitran and put whiskey in it (although I feel like I probably shouldn't be recommending that one, haha).

So I was going to feel lame, because my distance was way lower than a lot of people's, but then I realized that we were supposed to be walking and there is a multiplier for running. Sweet!

 

 

don't worry about it... your distance should only be compared to you :P

 

I always get frustrated when I have to sit out a mini challenge (or I SUCK at a mini challenge :( ) but I am a good cheerleader! :P

I felt quite down after talking to someone who ran three tough mudders on the Saturday and was back for more on the Sunday because I was "only" doing two ... There's always someone doing more/faster/with a 65kg mannequin. The only person you want to consistently beat is your previous self :)

Rangers:

As we pour over the maps, trying to make sense of the terrain and what we have come across we need you to halt, forage, drink water etc.

We will report back later today.

Also, if anyone brought a carrier pigeon, that'd be great.

Were we NOT supposed to eat the pigeon?  Oops! My bad!
