Mini Challenge Thread: We don't need no stinkin title.

Recommended Posts

Sooooooooo here we are rangers.... At the beginning of another challenge and here we find ourselves standing at the foot of a mountain. Maybe it's metaphorical... Nah. You are legitimately at the base of a really tall peak.

 

All the rangers have spent the week gathering around the based, and our navigation team has outlined a path up the side of the mountain.

 

Together we climb.

 

Rangers!

Welcome to another challenge! Let's get some vertical distance in!

We are needing to get to the next point on the map which means we each need about 50 flights of stairs.

 

For those of you who are new, these challenges are meant to push you in your own ability level. You can scale and tweak them without my permission, all I ask is that you do your best, play along, and be a part of the team!

 

Let's go!!!

Hmmm.. 50 flights each.  My house has 2-1/2 flights of stairs.  That means I need to go from basement to top floor 20 times..  Best to get started...

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

My office is on the second floor but my flat is ground floor. I think I'll take the stairs at the tube station in the morning instead of using the escalators. Will need to run up and down the stairs in my building a few times to make up the numbers I think! My neighbors are going to love me!

*Checks initial post*

 

*Facepalm*

 

Right, so I've gone up... 11 flights of stairs already. Won't make it at this pace, but I have a plan to pick it up. Just need to remember counting.

Do what you can, maybe we can rig a pulley system and bring other folks up in baskets :)

Sorry first mini challenge. Do we post here if we complete it, or is this just for our own records? Also, How long do you have to do this? 1 day? 1 week?

 

It's meant as an extra surprise workout, I suppose. Usually they last for a week and it's up to you to keep track. A post here when you're done will do, but feel free to post ideas, progress and anything that might inspire and keep the enthusiasm levels high :)

Hum ..... time to start counting and hunting for them.  I work at home - the house is a ranch style.  Interesting challenge to get me out of the house!

Quick question, will this challenge be all vertical? Or will there be some running/biking/walking/swimming sections coming up? I'm not able to do much in the way of stairs on account of my knees being absolutely horrid. Although I did end up going up 7 flights of stairs last night after work on account of the elevators eating my phone's signal and being on a call that was a bit too important to let drop. :)

Ugh. My big plans did not come to fruition. My new leg program is great...for giving me DOMS! I stretched and foam-rolled and did some exercise biking today. No City Hall stairs for me.

 

I'll be back over there Friday. (Which should be leg day again, but it is getting moved to Saturday!)
