To participate, report your daily XT time in this thread. Easiest for me will be a single post that you edit throughout the week, similar to SS's weekly thread.<br><br>
Bragging rights and perhaps a dancing fruit item will be awarded to each week's XT Royalty. At the end of the contest, the overall King and Queen will each receive a gift certificate to an online store, or if they prefer, a donation to the non-terrorist organization of their choice.<br><br>
There will be a "gender wars" aspect to this contest too. Details and awards TBD.<br><br>
I will edit this post to show the individual and gender standings throughout the week.<br><br>
Here are the rules:
<ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>What counts as XT? Cycling, swimming, water running, rowing, weights, yoga, pilates -- if it's exercise, it counts, except for running and walking.</li>
<li>We'll just count minutes of XT, no fancy degrees of difficulty. It's not fair, but as tomwhite might tell you, if your XT is harder than someone else's, you can feel smug about building character.</li>
<li>The contest will go for three weeks, from December 3 through December 23. This thread is for <b>December 3-9</b>.</li>
<li>No <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2"> allowed.</li>
</ol>
=====================<br><br>
As of Sunday evening, here's where we stand:<br><br>
Women
<blockquote><p>14 women reporting<br>
total XT: 2506 minutes (179 minutes per XTer)<br>
XT queen: Sans Souci (494 minutes)<br></p></blockquote>
Men
<blockquote><p>10 men reporting<br>
total XT: 1988 minutes (199 minutes per XTer)<br>
XT king: JJJessee (430 minutes)<br></p></blockquote>
You can see the spreadsheet <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><a href="http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p7t7ZH0Z3tfi4azNVvYr4HQ" target="_blank">here</a></span>.

I do not cross-train much at all and will likely be dead-last each week for amount of time spent X-Training, but will report what little I do to contribute something to the victorious women's team! By the way - do we know the number of women vs men here? I imagine it's pretty well split even . . . .<br><br>
And since I have a hard enough time planning my weekly runs and actually sticking to it, I'll just report what X-Training I do, as I do it.<br><br>
Mon: <b>no cross training</b><br>
Tues: <b>15 min ab/core/planks</b><br>
Wed: <b>60 min yoga/pilates class</b><br>
Thurs: <b>rest</b><br>
Fri: <b>no cross training</b><br>
Sat: <b>no cross training</b>.<br>
Sun: <b>nothing<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"></b>
