Crew of the Aeronaught's Bane


Dusk

Recommended Posts

Hi All!! I ran 5 miles today (before I knew what the mini would be). I already run a lot, so I think I need to modify this goal to make it reasonable/fair/in-the-spirit-of-the-challenge. I had a pretty ambitious running goal for this week and don't really think I can add more. For the sake of fairness, I'm going to let my 5 miles count as long as I do two more 7-minute workouts (something new I'm playing with, but wasn't necessarily going to do...so it's something "extra" I'm doing for the mini beyond my normal exercise).

 

I'm heading out on vacation on Wed. I know we'll do a bunch of walking, but I don't really feel like I need to tally it up. Doesn't really feel like intentional exercise in this case. Just part of my normal life.

 

Because I run a lot anyway, I'm just going to stop my mileage count at 5 and not stack it on. Sound fair?

Didn't really intend join this mini since I've historically had a hard time keeping up with the minis.  However, air pirates are just awesome so I'm kinda glad I'm in anyways!

 

So, I ran 3.6km this evening in celebration of a diagnosis on my pelvic pain (ovarian cyst), so I've logged that, and we're off!

Is it the goal of the crew as a whole to accumulate 20 miles in the week? That's how I understood it, but sometimes wording can be finicky. If that's the case, if/when you reach 5 miles I reckon you can just leave it at that. But perhaps still keep track, so that if other crews start posting the entirety of their distance, we can compete a little. ;) 

 

ETA: I may have misunderstood you, sorry! Were you referring to the 5-mile cap in general, or whether to count regular activity? Man I just can't with the english comprehension today. :P

 

Fun titles are FUN! I am clueless about boat-y names though. Any ideas?

 

I walked 4.23 miles today. So I'll hit 5 miles sometime tomorrow morning. But this is all a normal part of the day (ah, campus life), so I'm gonna try and get some extra activities in this week too to make it really count!

 

@Polgara19 - I'm glad you got a diagnosis. Is that hard to treat? It sounds kinda scary. I'm glad you're here though. I haven't been doing mini-challenges either, but airship pirates was just too cool to pass up. :panda:

There isn't really anything you can do, but it's also not all that serious, so I'm much happier than when I didn't know what was up!

Polgara, so glad it's nothing serious! (Sorry it's painful!)

 

Shadri, you are right, we only need 20 miles total, but Rurik suggested, we could keep logging miles for fun and friendly competition. So you guys are welcome to log as many miles as you want. I'm just going to cap mine at 5, because I wasn't sure how to decide which ones were "extra" and which ones were part of my regular challenge.

 

Maegs...I think anything counts. Didn't specifically say rowing, but heck, we're pirates! The point is just to get some exercise.

 

...I don't have any fun pirate-y names in mind...yet....

Barefoot walking is part of my challenge! My feet are waaaaay not conditioned so I'll be doing a little bit each day. Since you guys are all powerhouses I hope it's ok if I just aim for 3 miles. So far I've done just under one mile.

 

eta: I may have missed it somewhere, but is there a spreadsheet or something to keep track of our collective miles?

Also, I just noticed that this is in the last challenge Accountabilibuddies (couldn't find the thread when I went looking!) @Rurik Harrgath do your powers extend to moving threads around?

Sure do.  I'm going to consolidate the Crew threads back into the Ranger forum as stickies later.  :)

Also this is my first mini challenge so I'm a wee bit confused, do I need to post here and on the main forum? And do we download the spreadsheet for tracking? (Using Tapatalk)

You just track your accomplishments right in the form - that way everybody can see everybody else's progress.  You can post here, the main forum, wherever you want!  

 

Do you have your own challenge thread up yet?

Ha! 21st Pilot. LOVE IT. That is me. Done. <3 :panda: 

 

@Rurik Harrgath - thanks for moving the thread over to the Ranger forum! Dunno why we didn't think of that in the first place.

 

I think I'm just gonna count how far I go in the course of the week, since other people are posting numbers higher than 5 miles, and it's not part of my challenge. *shrug*

I can't seem to edit it on my phone so I'll have to get it on my PC, I don't have a thread up yet but I'm looking to soon.

This week was pretty hectic so some of my barefoot mileage was spontaneously taking off my shoes while out and about, but that's fine! My feet don't know the difference.

@Jedediah The Wolf I hope you don't mind, I put in the 4.5 miles you mentioned since I'm not sure when this week is being tallied with the time zones and all.

 

If anyone else's got miles to log, better get on with it :)

Thanks mate! I got my laptop now so i'll be able to log the rest of my miles today as well. Also I got a wee bit behind yesterday but am going to make up for it today with one last big walk!
