Whew, we are through! June was fun, nothing too monotonous. It was pick your poison and do the points.
Winners, Winners, Chicken Dinners:
Jaffas (You are the man! Bonus star)
k-rex (I know who you are)
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!
The beast was stirred. 10,000 stairs in October. Octowussy is on.
so this 2100 pushup challenge has been brutal.
work, life & travel has been conspiring against us all
for me, total poor planning has resulted in facing 530 pushups in the final 3 days.
i am happy to report that right now it looks like i will earn my star (only 110 left to go before midnight). I am the red line in the chart.
big stars & congrats to:
- Mr. Kinda D
- ShawnB (a beast as always with DOUBLE the goal)
on the bubble at this point:
- me (midalkewinter)
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.

(matt here: since some of you mother-effers are the litigious type. exercise shall be defined as “exerting one’s self physically resulting in a heart rate of 60%+ of your personal maximum range, muscle engagement & general pain, swearing, and/or cursing of the gods.” Do it, humans!)
