Jeff didn't let the Holiday's get in his way. Show off!
Basically this was pretty expected... people were busy getting their Holiday Party on. Back to work this week!
The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!
The 2012 Chain-Game wraps up today and goes into the record books. Let's see how people did!
Overall I am extremely happy with how everyone did in 2012. Three people managed to build their chains completely since we announced the project 30 weeks ago. That is an absolutely amazing job. Many others preformed spectacularly as well, only letting one or two weeks go at a time before getting back and rebuilding their streaks.
With that, I want to announce the plans for 2013. I would like to *reset* the Chain-Game. Bring everyone back to 0 weeks and on an even playing field for 2013. I want to do this for a couple of reasons:
- Encourage people just getting started to work on their chains, and not be intimidated by people 30+ weeks into the game already.
- Encourage people who broke a rather long chain to restart the process for the new year.
- Encourage people who are currently maintaing their long streaks to shoot to break their 2012 record in 2013.
I'm sure not everyone will be thrilled with the idea, but I really want to have a fresh start for everyone in 2013. I'll be building the 2012 results into the tracking system ... in a trophy case sort of way in the weeks to come, so that streak will be there for all to see.
With that, I encourage everyone to build their chains this week and get in on top of Week 1!
The November Challenge
The November Challenge is still running. With the new year here, I really do expect to see this challenge fall quickly. Lets get it done and have a huge first week in the new year!
Another 80km this week!
