Here's the proposed scoring table for next round. It is the same as for the last round; I think it worked well.<br><br>
One proposal that I like: what about adding a 5 point premium for a race? Notey made the suggestion a while back, and I think it's a good one in that it gives a little bump for the extra intensity that a race provides. I don't think we should make it any more complicated than this: no "speedwork" bonuses, no graduated formulae for length or race or multisport races. If you do an endurance race, no matter the distance and no matter if it's a single-sport or multisport race, you get 5 points plus whatever points you get for the distance covered. Period.<br><br>
Thoughts?<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">VRAA scoring categories:<br><br></span><b>I. Running/Walking:</b> 4 pts for every mile (1 pt for every 1/4 mile). All weekly miles in excess of 80 to be scored at one-half points (2 pts per mile.)<br><br><b>II. Swimming:</b> 1 pt for every 100 yards (indoor or outdoor)<br><br><b>III. Outdoor Cycling:</b> 1.5 pt for every mile<br><br><b>IV. General Cardio*:</b> 1 pt for every 3 minutes<br><br><b>V. Alternate workouts**:</b> 1 pt for every 5 minutes (maximum of 60 minutes, or 12 points, per day; we do not intend to turn this race into Yoga Your Ass Across America)<br><br><i>* General Cardio</i> includes: Stationary bike/Bike trainer/Elliptical/Stair- stepper/Rowing, etc. The basic requirement for this category is an activity that produces a sustained, elevated and/or aerobic heart rate.<br><br><i>** Alternate workouts:</i> This category is open to interpretation. To a point. Below are the suggested activities. The guidance with this category is to count time spent working and not rest time.<br><br>
- Yoga/Pilates<br>
- Weighlifting/Circuit training<br>
- Core/Abdominal work

When do we start?<br><br>
Otherwise, I was happy with the scoring. I may be influenced by my team winning...maybe. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Why would riding the bike on the trainer differ from riding outside?<br><br>
That would be like saying that running on a treadmill and running outside are different.<br><br>
To me they are one in the same

i really would like the skating be be measured in miles instead of time. i can skate for hours teaching but it doesn't do nearly as much as mileage does.
