!!Armageddon 100k!!
« on: August 29, 2020, 08:31:14 PM »
FINE NAO!!

***HERE IT IS***

The Armageddon 100k!!

YES!!  That's Right!!  ONE HUNDRED KILOMETERS!!  (kilometres)

For Americans, that's just over 62 miles.

The goal here is to run/jog/walk a grand total of 100 Kilometers by the 21st of December, 2020.
**First Day of Winter**

I -really- don't care if you run, jog, or walk.  Just get your distance in!!

Do the math however you want.  It's a little over 6 kilometres per week, or about 3.8 miles.

Use this thread to post pictures of your journey!!

Whose With Me?!?!

We'll start with your first post.

This is NOT a race!!

It's all about getting outside, completing this goal together, and encouraging one another!!

BUT WAIT!!!
THERE'S MORE!!!


There are a few options if you want to make it a little more fun!!

Option A:  The Nao Way
You complete the 100k barefoot!!

Option B:  Double or Nothing!!
You double the distance!!

Option C:  The Double Nao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You double the distance AND do it barefoot!!!

Option D:  The Family Fifteen!!
Fifteen miles instead of 60+
Can be with kids or a stroller.

I'll probably do 200k since I ought to be running 12k a week but I haven't been. I graduated a course in April that required a lot of ruckrunning and just haven't been good about cardio since then.

I'm not posting pictures of my fatass in the before shots, though. :P
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

7.5 miles yesterday, a little under 7 today.

I have to get my diet tied down a little better. The amount of calories I burn should see me shedding weight like crazy but I <3 beer and pasta.

Not as fun as you’d hope.

We might have to add a Family option for people who are participating with kids.

Maybe the Family Fifteen (miles).

Umm, I think I am up to 3 miles? I've been walking weekly, like every Sunday with my kids. It's been (in desertt's voice) AMAZING. I'm hoping to take it up a notch and maybe walk twice a week instead of once. I probably won't make the Family 15 or what not, but I'm enjoying what I am doing!

Four days in on daily efforts with a seated arm-driven bike.

Seemed fitting.

8.4 miles so far.

My health app thinks I’m at 105km today (since the first post), but that’s just general movement; probably only 1/4 of that is dedicated runs/walks.  I’ll be interested to see if I crack 100km intentional by Dec 21st.
You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

Did another 5 today.

Grand Total of 80 miles / 128.748 kilometres.

Still have close to three months to go.

Maybe we should add a 500k option???

Oh holy shit, I didn't even notice this was a thing.

I guess I'll tally up my numbers for the last couple months of this whole "healthy living" crap I've been doing.

2 total drinks in the last 3 or 4 months.  Mostly vegetarian.  Tons of walking.  I'll get some numbers up shortly.  Thanks to whoever put this together, and to all you crazy cats that are keeping it going!!!
I seduced the daughters of men
And made the death of them.
I demanded human sacrifices
From the rest of them.
I became the spirit that haunted
And protected them.
And I lived in the tower of flame
But death collected them.

I used to be a runner, but then I took an arrow a rock to the knee.

Do a walking challenge next? ;)

The goal here is to run/jog/walk a grand total of 100 Kilometers by the 21st of December, 2020.
**First Day of Winter**

I -really- don't care if you run, jog, or walk.  Just get your distance in!!

So yes, you can walk if you want to; you can leave your friends behind...

Cause your friends don't walk and if they don't walk, well, they're no friends of mine....

Well, cool. No way I saw this in time to do 100k by December, but I can join in for the hell of it.

I've been chasing the elusive 5km in 25 minutes. I get close, so close I can taste it. But she remains out of reach. Tarnation!

60k logged, around at least 40 without the app since Sep1.

Started dating a personal trainer to get the inside track. Track, get it!?  ;D

The real Marathon is watching Stark DS9, though, had no fucking clue how good this shit is.

Good thread, thank you. To anyone running barefoot, I worship your ankles.

Ran the Good Life Halfsy yesterday with my Mom.

Alright, so we mostly walked it.

Still got our distance in and finished!!

 ;D

119.21 plus 13.1 equals something.

132.31 MILES!!

Which puts me over the 200 km mark!!  :D

YAY!!

212.93 km total!!

Now I just need to recover and kick it back in gear to hit to 200 mile mark before the first day of winter...

I'm still going too, but I stopped counting. I'll have to go back and check how far I've gone in the meantime. My guess is somewhere around 30 or 40 kms since my last update.

Ran (jogged) 5 miles yesterday.

First time exercising since fighting off COVID for two weeks.

My pace was... slow.

137.31 miles total though!!

Still have a full month left to go.

Let's see... that means about 2 miles per day.

w00t!!

Another 5 miles on Thursday.

142.31 total mileage.

That's just over 229 kilometres.

I suppose I should get out an run today, but it's currently drizzling and under 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

That's just under 4 degrees Centigrade (or Celsius, however you prefer).

Tried something different Monday.

Did 4 miles on one of those ellipticals with the moving handbars.

146.31 total mileage.

It might be a challenge to hit 200 miles, but we'll see!!

Did another 4 miles on the elliptical thingy week before last.

Did five miles outside in SoCal while we were out adopting AGAIN.  (two adoptions, ten total kids)

I'm at 155.31 but don't think I'm going to sneak in another FIFTY Miles before the 21st.

Unlikely that...
