I'm new at this and someone said that I need to do this challenge.

So can I join a team. I'm a complete newbie.

My goal will be to run at least 40 miles in November. Is that too little or too much. I'm shooting for about ten miles a week.

Hi Joseph and welcome to BT!

As far as the challenge go, the premises it to challenge yourself. If 10 miles a week is something that you always do, then you may want to increase it.

Whichever team you end up on, you'll find a lot of support from everyone participating in the challenge, not just your team members.

Hi Vida Nova!

Your goal and experience level fits right in with Team 7.

As for shooting for 10 miles per week, as Terri said, it depends upon what you've been doing already. I see in your log that you did 3.18 miles today. That's FANTASTIC!

Click the link below to get to the team 7 thread. Some of your new team members have running goals simliar to yours, so feel free to discuss your goals with them!

Happy Thursday!

We have 102 people participating in the Challenge this month! For those of you who missed Sunday's “Challenge Update,” You can see it here: http://beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/forums/thread-view.asp?tid...

Want to see the team rosters? Your goals? Other people’s goals? All of those are available here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=puhAA5NRKHA3l_GNYwG3Qdg

Each week, I’ll update the above spreadsheet. That way, you can chart your progress!

Team Spreadsheet "Due Dates"

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

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.

Team Leaders - Attached are the latest Team spreadsheets. Once you've entered your team's data, 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 the "chatter" on it has calmed down, so you don’t need to worry about it getting lost!) The teams are large, so if you want extra help, feel free to name an assistant captain!

If you have questions, post them on the main Challenge thread. That way, I’ll be sure to see them. (Or you can always PM me.)

I hope that your month is going well! This Challenge is all about working out - however you want to define it, meeting fellow BTers, and having fun! I hope that you've been able to accomplish all of these things during the past week.



Dee

Hello, so I'm not completely sure how this works (I'm new!) but I would like to sign up if I still can. Here are my goals:

Bike 100 miles
Run 50 miles

With Thanskgiving and some traveling this month these goals might be a little hard for me to reach, but I think that's the point!

Hi ACGRAY,

I know just what you mean about Thanksgiving and travel! It'll be interesting!

Hard Core Tri Corps is a "newbie" team, and has some southern California members. So I'm thinking this would be a great "home" for you!

Here's a link to their team thread. If you click it, you'll go right to their discussion:

Happy Saturday!

Tomorrow is SUNDAY, the day when you report your achievements for the beginning of November! While posting your “progress report” on your team thread, 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!

And now, here’s a quick update on what all our teams have been up to….

The Moscateers – Team1
The youngsters are showing up their parents! Comet_the_dog ran with his daughter, Dani – and lost. Congratulations to Dani, who did a 5k in just over 38 minutes! And 1for1’s daughter, Gidgetintraining, is already at 41% of her running goal and 50% of her workout goal! Go kids!

The Vigilantes – Team2
This team has a lot of “firsts” planned for this weekend! ScotinSeattle and Medusa_Ann are doing a 10k trail run this weekend! It’s their first 10k. And Fielding will be doing her very first race this weekend! Unfortunately, they had to cancel the swim portion, due to an oil spill. Good luck everyone! You’ll do great!

Turkey Terrors – Team3
Running is the topic of the day for this team. Some of it is even being done barefoot! Gygyhawk had a fantastic response to her trainer’s comment that her metabolism was low. But you’ll have to stop by this team’s thread to read it!

5 For Fighting – Team5
After training hard, this team likes to kick back with a glass of wine. Or beer. Or maybe even both…. To make sure there is no confusion as to which beverage is preferred, this team posts pics of their favorite post-workout cocktail. Someday, they hope to start a wine mail-order business.

They Who Shall Not Be Named (Twisnibbins) – Team6
This group posts so much that their team leader, LastCall2003 (Beth) must now post daily updates to summarize the discussion! Believe it or not, this group actually discussed running AND swimming this week! (Who knows, maybe cycling is next?) HCS5QA (Hector) will be running his first Half Marathon on Sunday! Run, Hector, run! To help inspire Hector, team leader Beth will be waving her pom poms!

Wild Hippos – Team7
Several members of the Hippos have been benched due to illness. Owl_girl wants to know if puking time counts as “ab work.” (We now know more about her illness than we really wanted to!) Team Leader Cat received a penalty flag for inappropriate language, and had to state three positive things about herself. Is Lyssa-gator slacking off? We’ll find out soon, depending upon whether she accepts Baowolf’s challenge of doing a 34 mile bike ride with him.

Hard Core Tri Corps – Team8
Zipp1 ran an awesome 8k race today. ACGRAY22 joined the team, becoming the 102nd person in the challenge. TriAya (Yanti) told us about her progress to date – including details of her 100+ pound weight loss, and posting some absolutely incredible pics of her HOT TRI BODY! If you want to be inspired, you need to stop by this team’s thread and see Yanti’s transformation into a “tri hottie”! Amazing!

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