Eh, It's no biggie if we lose as long as everyone did what they could. Some people were sick or whatnot. I'm pretty proud of myself I've been running mostly every other day this has to be the most I've run ever, and I just finished 9 miles tonight. I'm ready for my 15k next weekend now. It won't be fast, but oh yes it will be done.

Hello pumpkins! 

I'm back to the world of the living after being sick - hooray!  I'm not quite up to training yet but maybe tomorrow I can start back with a light workout.  If I adjust my goal for being sick and can do ANY running before the end of the week, I should be fine to hit 100%.  That said, there may still be a chance of me hitting my original goal depending on how the rest of the week goes, so I'm going to hold off on making any adjustments for now.

Looks like you all have been doing well!  JRowe - great race and nice kilt!  Sub-10 in a race is an awesome achievement.  Bao - congrats on the podium and the huge PR! 

Anyone else racing lately?

D001 - 2009-10-26 6:54 PM  OK, copied and pasted from the original sign-up thread: The winning team(s) will display a signature line: "My team won the Annual Halloween Run Challenge!" All other (losing) teams will display an avatar with a "Running theme." (For example: You running, your shoes, your treadmill, the route you normally take when you run, etc.) Avatars and signature lines will be displayed for the month of November. After that, it's your choice whether to leave it, or remove it.


Ha!  Some of us already have running avatars!  =)

Win or lose, though, this challenge definitely helped me stick to my plan for October.  Thanks Pumpkins!

Yes, no matter what, this challenge did help me log more running miles.  When I picked my hours for the challenge, I was following a marathon training program.  Shortly after that I switched to more triathlon focused training with fewer running hours.  Yikes.  That has made it a challenge to get the hours for the challenge.  I am still hopeful of finishing at 100%.  And it will be 10-15 more miles than last month.

Cry, but I like my avitar.  I know I will put in a pic of me jogging against the current in my swimspa to recover from my 30k race.  Man while I was swimming latnight I could feel my stiff thighs pinging. 

Preprogrammed workout on the wall 8):
Set the swim spa on 50 and warm up for 10 minutes..
Next swim spa on 60 and do 6x1 minute with 15 RI.
Swim spa 50 easy for 2 minutes.
Swim spa on 55 do 6x1:30 with 20 Ri
Swim spa on 65 and do 6x30 seconds with 20 RI
Cool down set on 55 swim for 10.
Around 49 minutes!

Today's 5 mile run should be quite enjoyable, when it stops snowing.  Sometimes jogging is easier than walking after a long race.  I hope that is true today 8), the legs have still not losened up enough for effortless walking.  If I make it 2.5 miles I will reach my goal though.

Who says we are going to lose?

I'm at 20:40 out of 23 hours so just 2 hours and 20 minutes to go...I'll make it.

My running was less than I hoped for this month as coming back after a month off went slower than I expected but I walked a lot. Glad I made my goal run/walk hours as it was doable for me where straight running goal would have been hard to estimate given my month off in September.

I think y'all know a general background of how I started running labor dayish and tri training a few weeks later. Won't get into it here. BUT, I have been told 2x is 3 days that I am a fast swimmer!! Wow that went to my head and made me feel good. Just wanted to throw that out there.... Although I probably look like an orca swimming, A great big orca! OK going to master swim on Fri afternoon, because I think I have the base now!!

I got another run it today so I will bump up my goal from 13 to 15 sessions. So now I'll have one more session to go.

losta - 2009-10-26 3:14 PM Another run today on the treadmill, much easier on the bad knee. I think that gives me 100% but I'll get at least one or two more in. Too bad you can't count 110% like on other challenges. Dee is a tough cookie.


Could you bump up your goal??

Another short and painful 1.55 after the Du yesterday legs are still a lil sore.

Great job everyone!

I have one more to go. I'll probably be doing it either Tomorrow or Thursday as I need a few days rest before Sundays race. Thanks for helping keep my butt motivated.

I bought Halloween candy for the neighborhood yesterday - I was sure to pick out what I was least likely to eat, but wasn't the sucky penny candy either.

13.5 miles on the dreadmill this morning..... ick. That puts me less than 9 miles from my goal for the month, and I definitely have more than that planned for the rest of the week. I should be able to make it to 100% by Halloween.


GO PUMPKINS!!!
