  • Didn’t make it, today. Had to sit about 20 min from the end of the challenge.

  • The challenge today went by pretty quickly, as it is Monday and I usually have a few more tasks that have built up over the weekend, so my “Clear the Decks” time keeps me so busy that I don’t think about the time.

  • Ah, i see. Well tht’as not too tricky at all!”

  • I made it… mostly. I had to take a break to go into a meeting, but then I ended up standing extra time while I was training people towards the end of the day. So my total was much higher than 132 minutes, but it wasn’t all at once.

  • Forgot to check in yesterday! But I woke up today and my hamstrings and thighs are so sore! I’m going to break up challenge 12 into two separate times of 72.

  • I am having trouble with sore hips and calves. I have to sit after about 1hr then get back up.
