1 challenge per month. welcome to the pain cave.

June is a wrap! July is a Redux!

Finish Line!

Quite an amazing month. 600 miles of running, 13,061 pushups

28,840 Crunches, nice job on those, so we took them out.

The winners will get your stars in the mail soon. Nice job everyone. To kick off July…a slightly tweaked, updated Pain Cave Redux. Some swimmers requested swimming and we added it in.

July is live, good luck!

And we’re off!
Great start to #BikiniBodyJune! Judging by the chart, I’m seeing three styles emerge:
Steady Eddies
Jack Rabbits
Payday Pauls (per Seth: end of the month type people)
Big ups to the current leader - Shawn B with 2,920 points.

And we’re off!

It’s on…As usual…Matt and I had the 1st day of the month conversation that we set the bar too low.  To be determined- but for now,  start throwing in your updates and we will handle the charting. Rumor has it that there are some marathon runners and some triathletes competing this weekend so look for some high scores.

April Challenge:
Somewhere… at some point… I ran across a pretty cool challenge that piqued my interest. 

Exercise 30 minutes a day for 100 days.

Understanding that 100 is more than 30… we decided to modify the challenge for The Monthly Pain Cave.
Also understanding that some of you have actual lives and actual things to do other than exercise… You are allowed 7 misses. You can skip 7 days if you must and still get your star.
Rules of the #Dirty30
Do whatever you want - in terms of exercise 
A miss is a miss and cannot be made up. Doing an hour the next day does not give you back the 30 from the previous day. 
A simple check mark on the Google doc will suffice. (comments are always welcome on the type of activity) 
I am going for the full 100 days starting April 1 and will keep the document open if anyone wants to come along for the ride.
