Whew, third challenge of the year, already! Time moves extra fast in 26-day chunks. :tongue:

 

This challenge will take us through March, which means one more gymnastics competition (this Saturday!) and then I get a break from meets until Nationals in April. Maybe it's the spring air or maybe it's because I don't want to commit to too many bonus physical pursuits, but this challenge is a bit more domestic-focused than previous ones.

Track 1. Ain't No Mountain High Enough

  • Conditioning workout or strength training workout 13x over challenge

I have a sneaking feeling that I am going to want to chill out for a bit after the meet this Saturday, so to combat that, I am going to bonus incentivize conditioning and strength training workouts in this challenge. Conditioning can be any drillsandskillsWOD, the office gym's conditioning class, NP Stadium, or any 10+ minutes at practice. Strength training will be low rep, difficult progression bodyweight skills or WEIGHTS.

Track 2. Come and Get Your Love

  • Core-focused exercises or PT 20x this challenge.

CORE work continues with this challenge's edition.  If it's part of a conditioning circuit, it will count for both goals.

Track 3. O-oh Child

  • Dance/clean sessions around the house totaling 180 minutes

Dance battle against the mess of my house. 1v1 me, bro! No requirements for the % of dancing versus cleaning for these minutes, but as long as I am doing one or the other and rocking out around the house, I am racking up minutes. Going OUT to dance will not count except for morale boosting. ;)

Track 4. Escape (The Pina Colada Song) 

  • Cook 4 recipes out of my cookbooks

I've got some wonderful cookbooks that I adore and am very glad to have but haven't actually managed to cook anything out of just yet! This will change over this challenge. These will likely be more baked goods than other options, but as long as I am working from a recipe from one of these books, we count it!

I either wind up with a cleaner house or more low intensity cardio. It's a win-win! ;)

 

I got The Food Lab and the Baking Bible for Christmas last year and haven't even touched them beyond making some biscuits for biscuits and gravy in January. I've skimmed/read through a lot of the content of both, just haven't used them. I've also got Ottolenghi, Smitten Kitchen's, and My Paris Kitchen that I've barely cooked out of!

Love the dance goal. But I'm not sure you'll get any chores done that way. :tongue:

 

 

It's actually surprising how much you can get done while dancing.  Everything feels much less like a chore when you're busy rocking out. :)

 

Raptron, this challenge is made of amazing.  I am sure you will crush it!

I have got a million cookbooks I never use too! it's kind of the worst. I love reading them, and planning, and then I rarely use them. I do get a lot of cookbooks from the library, that helps me pick the stand-out winners.

Aw, dude! Dancing whilst doing chores is great. I was practicing bboy toprock a few weeks back whilst vacuuming the carpet and when my mother walked in she.. laughed so hard that she started crying.

...uh.. yeah.

 

Anyway, best of luck on your gymnastics competition! Looking forward to seeing you destroy this challenge. :D

I love everything about this challenge.  :)  Dance cleaning is brilliant, and I'm totally going to have to steal that sometime!  I do need to know this, though...  For the baked goods, are they going to be booze enhanced baked goods?  ;)

I mean, St. Patrick's Day is in a few weeks and I do have a reputation to maintain. :D

 

Edit: Plus, I have this cookbook: http://www.amazon.com/Booze-Cakes-Confections-Spiked-Spirits/dp/1594744238 so it could even count for my challenge. Mwahaha.
