SIMPLY DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE!

Clearly, he doesn't know us very well.  We Assassins "simply" do the impossible every single day.

 

This week, though, our quest is deceptively easy.  How does one get to Mordor?  By walking, of course.

Shhhhh..... we don't logic here.

 

HOW TO PLAY:

  • It doesn't get much simpler than this: walk and track your distance.
  • For purposes of this challenge, you may count ONLY walking.  No running, jogging, biking, swimming, rowing, flying....... etc.
    • The one exception is if you have a lower body injury that means you cannot walk safely.  If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise.
  • If you have a pedometer and are tracking your steps over the course of your day, that's fine - just translate into miles or kilometers.  Otherwise, count treadmill distance, walking around your neighborhood after second-breakfast distance... anything is game.
  • There are no race bonuses for this mini challenge.
  • The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom.

 

This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it.

 

>>PUT ON YOUR WALKING SHOES<<

WOOOOOO! Good thing walking is one of my go-to activities at work when I need to clear my head. :D I think I'll log those walks with RunKeeper to give a good idea of distance and what not even though I do have a FitBit, but I'd rather track dedicated walking time than how much I walk throughout the day.

Do we do a line for every time we walk (or daily) or do we just keep updating our line?

Please update your same line every time you have new mileage to add. :)

I just started classes again which means looooots of walking up and down stairs for me. Dancing steps don't count, I suppose? 

 

See rule #2. ;)

Woohoo! Although I was taking an extra walk yesterday at lunch (beautiful weather here right now!) and thinking: "Gosh, I wish there were a mini challenge right now that this would count towards!" Looks like it's time to take another one!

So I am joining a bit late and have been assigned to the humans.  As part of my work, they are putting on a walking challenge right now.  I have been averaging 18-20K steps a day so sorry to the non-humans but we just took the lead... If you want to friend me on FitBit let me know!
