Well, I haven't won anything yet, and choovie, you're probably going to be the Plank Queen again. But I am willing to put together a new contest. Here's my proposal:<br><br><div style="text-align:center;"><b>The December Masters XT Challenge<br></b>
<div style="text-align:left;"><br>
To participate, report your daily XT time in the XT Challenge thread. 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>
It seems like we gotta have some 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>We'll go for three weeks, from December 3 through December 23.</li>
</ol>
Feedback is welcome.</div>

Hmmm.<br><br>
Will observe the progress of this thread and incorporate into requirements-gathering for the Shiny New Masters' Miles Thread for the end of the month.

Sounds great, Mill! So how do you want us to track it? Post a 3 week anticipated schedule and update as completed? Thanks for doing this.

What I had in mind was a thread for each week, where people post their numbers for that week... sorta like SS's weekly thread.

How about a sub challenge: Masters v Mastresses (that's with an "s," not the kind you sleep on, although I guess you could if you asked nicely <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> )<br><br>
I think the wimmin could gently kick some pert Master derriere.<br><br>
(Former King tomwhite, sorry about the crown (or lack thereof). Didn't peg you as a monarchist. I'm troubled that you haven't received your prize. She said something about being Brunhilda's cousin. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> )

Neat idea, I am cross training queen and may even consider biking in this<br><br>
High Winds <img alt="" src="http://image.weather.com/web/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><img alt="" src="http://image.weather.com/web/common/wxicons/31/34.gif?12122006" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Mostly Sunny High<br>
36°F<br>
Low<br><b>23°F</b><br><img alt="" src="http://image.weather.com/web/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;">tomorrow although it's not the temperature that scares me but that high winds thing, it looks scarier on weather.com than it did when I posted it here.<br>
But biking usually lasts much longer then other stuff.<br><br>
You are donating the prizes Millbot?<br><br>
Of course you should make it a sticky.

Craqif, go hit the showers, man.<br><br>
Hally, if Millbot makes this a sticky, doesn't he have to consign one other sticky to drifting-thread purgatory?

I think that is Grizzly's self imposed PRT rule and doesn't apply here.<br>
Guess we'll see when and if Mill decides to sticky it.<br><br>
Sorry Pro, I tried to shuffle the posts around but it wouldn't let me.

So is there a planking portion here, or does it just blend with the other minutes of XT?<br><br>
I can shoot for a 30 minute plank. And I like the masters versus mistresses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Ooh, I like the masters vs mastresses idea too. The trash talk has already begun.<br><br>
I wonder what the masters or mastresses should get for winning? <span style="font-size:xx-small;">It's sort of an academic question in the case of mastresses winning, but still....</span><br><br>
Yes, hally, I'm donating the prizes. <img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/christmas5/25.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I'll make this thread sticky until the contest starts. Then I'll repost the rules in each weekly thread, so we can let this thread go.<br><br>
Ilene, all XT minutes will be counted the same.

Well, I think lingerie would be nice ... <span style="font-size:xx-small;">hey, millbot? Nothing like a trip to the local boutique, eh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br></span>

Oh yeah, you wait until I start running again.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/ugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="ugh"> Well, as long as it doesn't involve planks, I'm all for it.

what's with the fraidy planks here??! They are fun!<br><br>
I'm so not a cross trainer, but if we are doing a team thing, I'm in! And Dec would be a good month to cross train since I'm not training for anything . . . I love a little 'friendly' competition . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/headbang.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headbang">

I was going to abstain from this challenge since I got so burned-out on Xtraining during VRAA (I virtually Xtrained my ass across America; over 1000 points), but then that li'l pugnacious Sans Souci threw down the gauntlet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/ugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="ugh"><br><br>
I need to think this one over....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool">
