Hi Nat!

Great, thanks a lot Dee. I really appreciate the work you've done.

Hi Nate,

Sorry for the delay! I appreciate your patience. (Work. It sure does interfere with BT time, doesn't it?)

You met Cat last night, I believe. So why not head over to her Team 7?

What? Yanti grabbed another hot guy? Imagine that.... Yet another month of her inbox overflowing with photos of guys showing off assorted body parts....

But, considering she DOES post them on BT so we can see them, too...... OK.

Greg - You're on Team 8 with Yanti now!

Wow, leave BT for a few hours and look what happens - I totally missed the chance to recruit another guy for Twisnibbin

Just tell our current guys to post twice as many pics. That might make up for it.

i know this is a dumb question but all we have to do is log our workouts in our training log and thats it or do we have to log our work outs somewhere else too so that they count towards our goal. this is my first challenge so i am not sure as to how it works. thanks

Hi JoeMac,

As long as you record the workout in your training log, it will count towards your goal. So that one is "required." (Besides, the BT training log is awesome!)

But also, talk to your team leader. Some team captains will look directly at your log for the info. Others may want you to post your weekly totals directly on your team thread.

(Personally, I find it motivational when everyone posts their workout on my team thread. It makes me want to get out there and do a workout too.)

Is it too late to join?

My goals for November are:

 

ball crunches 1000
swim yards 12000
run hours 25
bike miles 100
weight workouts 10

Pretty aggressive, but I've got plenty of time on my hands to fill. :)

Hi madkat,

Welcome the challenge!

I've added you to the Team 5 roster. You can find them under the "5 for Fighting" team thread.

Team Spreadsheet "Due Dates"

Hi all,

The Challenge started on Nov 1st and ends on Nov 30th. So all of your workouts during the month of November will count.

The first "week" will be longer than 7 days. But the final week will be shorter.

So here are the "weeks" you'll use for reporting your workouts:
Thurs Nov 1 - Sunday Nov 11 *
Mon Nov 12 - Sunday Nov 18
Mon Nov 19 - Sunday Nov 25
Mon Nov 26 - Friday Nov 30

The "progress reports" (aka spreadsheets) will be due from the team leaders on these days:
Monday Nov 12
Monday Nov 19
Monday Nov 26
Saturday Dec 1st

The extra day is so that the team leaders can collect the end information without having to nag their team become overly stressed.

* This does not mean you can wait until Nov 10th to start working out! LOL

Team Leaders - you can post the updated spreadsheets on the main Challenge thread. (This is the one with the push pin sticky. Since it's pinned to the top of the forum, it'll be easier to find. And I think the "chatter" on it will calm down soon.)

And if you're all wondering why your teams are so full.... Well, as of tonight, we have 94 people participating in the challenge!

Dee

I've put the team spreadsheets on Google. This isn't something that you can edit (yet). It's just for viewing purposes. But if someone wants to check their goals, they're all listed here. Just click on your team name to view it.

Each week, I'll update the spreadsheet and upload it to Google again. That way, you can see your progress.

Hi JohnDeere,

Absolutely! I think you exchanged messages with Cat already. So let's put you on her team. It's team 7.

Can you tell me what your goals are, so that I can add them to the list?

Welcome to the challenge!

Hi Everyone!

It’s Sunday, the day when you’d usually be reporting your achievements for the week. So even though the spreadsheets aren’t due this week, please feel free to brag about how great your workouts have been! This challenge is about achieving your goals -- so let's hear how you've done!

Each week, I'll give you a quick summary of what's been happening. This is another idea that I stole borrowed from Cat. (Thanks Cat!)

There are now 96 people participating in the challenge! We have 7 teams, so each of the teams has gotten quite large. (Team leaders, if you want help compiling everyone's results, feel free to ask for an assistant-captain!)

While you've been assigned to a team, please DO feel free to visit the other teams! In fact, Teams 6, 7 and 8 seem to have merged into one large extended "BT Party Central." If you haven't already done so, stop by and join the party!

Team1 - The Moscateers
This entire team is together by request! There are about a million members of the Mosc family here, resulting in the team's adopting a new name and motto: The "Moscateers" all for one and one for all. This team also has our youngest participant, 9 year old gidgetintraining. Comet_the_dog had jury duty and his Dad is in the hospital, however it's also his 15th Wedding Anniversary. What a week, huh?

Team2 - The Vigilantes
Lawyerchick (Meredith) is a newlywed. (Congratulations!) Fielding (Erin) will be doing her first Tri on Nov 11th! (Good luck, Erin!) And Jessicacrouchrt (Jessica) recently completed her own first Tri. (Great job, Jess!)

Team3 - The Turkey Terrors
After much debate, the team decided to call themselves The Turkey Terrors. Team Leader nccgrap (Ryan) is a high school science teacher, so he should be able to whip motivate this team into shape! Atlantia (Laura) is training for her first marathon in January, so she's set a high running goal this month. And we learned that SAHM means "Stay At Home Mom."

Team4 - The Nonexistant Team
When I combined Team4 and Team5, I put them under the Team5 name. So this team exists only in your imagination!

Team5 - 5 For Fighting
This team has members from all over the world! (Yes, I know the Dynamic Aussie Duo is on a different team. I'll get to them in a minute.) This team even has the BT tri-talk, iron-distance, and COJ forums moderator, rkreuser (Rick). He claims to have read every post on BT for the last 3 years. (I don't believe him however, as keeping up with my posts alone is nearly an impossible task!) Bhoover10001 (Brian) announced his secret goal of beating his 16 year old daughter in a triathlon. Whoops, so much for secrets! When Rzzqb8 (Robin) decared her running goal, she thought she was crazy, until she looked at her team's goals, and saw they're just as insane.

Team6 - They Who Shall Not Be Named (TWSNBN)
Ooooh boy. Where to start? This is BT Party Central Headquarters. Also known as "They Who Shall Not Be Quiet", this team is currently on page 18 of their thread. (Plus, these "BT addicts" also have an additional 4 pages on their previous "generic team" thread. Can they talk, or what?) So far, the women of TWSNBN have gotten all 3 male teammates to post photos of their naked legs. Wow! Now there's discussion of a BT Calendar. (Seriously!) HCS5QA (Hector) even tells us when he's about to jump in the shower. Team leader LastCall2003 (Beth) has her hands full with this team. (Or maybe she's the one instigating the trouble!) If you haven't already done so, stop by and enjoy the fun!

Team7 - Team Wild Hippos
Home of two hot Aussie women, kaqphin ("Super Cat") and light_sabe_r (Maddy), this team also features a bunch of former Posion Apples, the first team to achieve 100% of the goals in last month's challenge. Look out everyone, this team is MOTIVATED. In fact, Lyssa-gator (Lyssa) has issued a challenge --> Who can be the first person to 25% of their goals? Want to take her up on this? Stop by the Team 7 thread and let her know. Better hurry, because jasonbohn9 (Jason) has already counterchallenged by saying he could achieve 25% by Tuesday!

Team8 - Hard Core Tri Corps
Led by fearless leader BunnyB (Melissa) aka "General Bunny", this team has four California members! TriAya (Yanti) finished a 23 mile run, and delcared it "sweet and smooth." Mbmoran2 (Brian) declared his long term goals are to qualify for the Boston Marathon and tackle the Ironman. This team has some impressive performers! Crabsrule (Brenda) discovered what it's like to race on hills and in hot weather. This team always welcomes visitors, so come in and say hello. If you stop by though, be forewarned that TriAya (Yanti) aka "Sergeant Doberman" may assign you a team job! (Don't worry, you can handle it!)

From BT News Headquarters, this has been your weekly Challenge update.
