The December Masters XT Challenge

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>
Feedback is welcome.</div>

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.
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="" 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.
hally, you get yourself good and tired, because the contest doesn't start until Monday.
Oh hally, that would make for a hollow victory indeed, wouldn't it?<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">(Not that you wimmins are gonna win anyway.)</span>
If you do your next run in a skirt and post a picture, I'll let you switch sides.
What do you say, ladies? Will you take tomwhite in a kilt, or do you want him in a skirt?
