I still make it out for Sunday pickup and manage to hold my own.  I can't play more than 2 or 3 points at a time, so my endurance is pretty bad, but I can still make decent cuts.  I haven't run a timed mile in a while, but my friends and I visited St. Louis a few weeks back, and one of my friends is a big runner, so she signed up for a 4miler (she wants to run a race in every state).  I decided to do the 2 miler so i wasn't sitting around.  I don't recall my exact time, but it was around 18:30.  It's pretty slow, but given the hills and that it was like 45 degrees and drizzling, i'm satisfied.  It's sad to look back through this thread and see I was down to a 7:13 mile pace.  I'm probably back up to 8 minutes+ now. :(  One of these days i'll crack 7 minutes...

My work gives out $200/year for completing 5 activities through healthyroads.com.  One of the activities was to complete 150k steps in a month.  Back in february i had accrued about 130k by February 28th.  Of course I had to work all day that day, and then we were planning to visit my parents that weekend, and we didn't get there until about 10:30pm.  I managed to get in the last 20k by like 11:30pm, w00t!   I ran for about 40 minutes nonstop to get most of it in, haha.

V, your candor is both appreciated and discouraging :-P

I've run every day so far, but day 1 was definitely maximum effort. Today's step counter is currently at 3012, so I need to get back out there.
My team is currently winning this week's matchup. Our opponents have 2 people that have yet to report in (and you only have 1 day grace period to enter, so they've at least missed out on any numbers for Wednesday).

The 5th and final week of the Step Challenge is partway through. I've broken 10k steps thrice total:
  • Week 1 Day 1 -- when I went balls deep on fitness runs and walks
  • Week 2 Day 4 -- In Orlando, when I went to a park with Arif and Bryn, and then danced for a few hours at Josh and Kayla's anniversary party. I doubt the night was a net positive as far as physical health goes.
  • Week 5 day 1 -- when I went for a run in the morning, and then an extra long run in the evening.
I know the likelihood of my continued participation once the structured challenge ends is fairly low.. so I guess I need to give it my all this week and hope that I can coast until next year :-P
