This challenge will allow us to focus on multiple disciplines (if we so choose). It is meant to me a self/group motivator, and NOT a “I train more than you” challenge, although I can say there will (hopefully) be healthy/fun challenges within the group to help motivate us all to do our best. If you choose to partake in this fun and exciting challenge, please copy my format below, and re-populate with your goals for Nov.

Swim: 10,000 Yards (or meters if that is how your pool/plan is structured)
Bike – 225 Miles
Run – 75 Miles
Total – 300/10K

Thanks for taking up the reigns and doing this.

I'll post my miles later today after I look at things.

Speaking of wimpy mine will be VERY small since I am having foot surgery on the 15th. I'll be able to walk in a few days, bike in a week and swim in 2 weeks after that, so I really only have 2 weeks of time to do. I need to be accountable for those 2 weeks, though. so. ready....

set...

GO!

I was just going to monitor this in my log, but here you go.

User Name: prof40

S: 35,000 yds

B: 300 miles/24 hours

R: 100 miles

Total: 400 miles/35K

Here is what I have come up with:

User Name: trigal38 (real name Dina)

S: 27,000 yards

B:170 miles

R: 50 miles

Total: 220 miles/27,000K

My weakness is my run so I'm focused on being consistent month to month. No big increases until I know I can just keep at it without injury. Bike will likely be mostly trainer unless we have a splendid November here in IL. Swim I'm a 40 min drive away from the pool so I do what I can in the 2 days a week I am already at the Y to teach. And I'm adding in strength training this month which is not relevant to this challenge but I'm afraid is gonna hurt!

I'm on the board with a 5k run last night with my 7 year. It was his first 5k, he ran the entire thing in 31 min and had fun doing it!

Then an outdoor bike ride in 45 degrees with a 15 mph wind. I know that is not a super strong wind but man it ate me up today!

where should we record how many miles we did each day Would it be in this thread or is there another place to record it

I am a very visual person who likes seeing how I am doing in each goal area.

But I guess I could use my training log for that

Nice job today! It was pretty here too today. I got in a short ride and run on the trail. All the leaves were yellow entering the trail with the sunlight shining through, like running right into the sunshine. I actually liked Fall for a little while .

the easiest place is the training log. I plan to go in to each persons log on Sunday evenings and update the excel tracker prior to posting - This reminds me - you will need to make your training log public so I can view your progress (can be done through the settings)

Same here. I Ooohed and AAAAhed the whole time. We were on trails that no one was on or had been for a while. The trail was totally covered with leaves under our wheels under colored leaves- like stained glass, only better!

I changed the file name to a more common version of Excel. Hopefully this works for everyone. If not, let me know and I will try to get it up on Google docs later today
