Thanks - though might not be thanking you a couple hours in!!!
46 crazy people so far
Thx for counting. I was wondering and hadn’t gotten to it yet.
Would be cool if we got 50 total for starters.
#47 - I’m in! Either 6:00 eastern or 10:00 eastern, depending on what the boss says.
Also, how do we create a strava challenge? This should definitely be a strava challenge for finishing. Just like getting a finisher medal at a non-virtual event.
No idea on Strava challenges. Most I have seen are corporate.
I am working on a small Reward for 2 levels.
- A sticker for all who attempt the workout.
- An aluminum emblem / medal for all who get about 75% completion.
It may be something like the D-flame logo above.
Unfortunately my ramp test gave me a 15 watt bump to my FTP, which means this is going to hurt a lot more.
I think the biggest challenge will be cooling. I will have an AC on full blast as well as a small tower fan next to me. Even with this, after the one hour point during normal workouts A puddle emerges, my shoes are soaked and everything is nasty. Perhaps I will allow myself one to two breaks to change outfit and towels. Shoes will remain as an issue.
Yeah, cooling will be important, IMHO.
I have access to a window and will likely have plenty of cool air, along with my 3 fans.
A change of kit makes sense of you get foray soaked either way.
Just did the half. In.
Well done. I have the Half set for next weekend.
@jonbar123 I’m sure there will be overlap, but there are 38 going via Facebook and 95 (!) interested, so I suspect we’ll get to 50 starters easily.
Def sounds like it!
I still would love to hear the story of how this workout came to be in the first place. Anyone know the whole story? @chad?
This is what we already know (posted by Chad earlier in this thread)
No one wakes up in the morning and decides to make this. It had to come from a dark, painful place.
Probably before he found new life in the wonderful world of IPA’s
I reckon we all have a celebratory toast after. Worldwide Disaster + worldwide TR toast?
In, 1:00pm or 2:00pm GMT depending on my buddy recovering from back injury, 2:00pm if he does it with me otherwise 1pm. We might do the workout in the same space if he is recovered enough.
Got you added
