OH Lord, I forgot how crazy the Holidays can be.  Admittedly, I tried to stay off the radar last weekend during Thanksgiving - but this week has just FLOWN by.

I'm back to running and cross-training.  The dog & cat are with Grandma this week, so I've been watching lots of bad TV while on the treadmill at night. 

Kerrie & I started kicking around the idea of a cross-training challenge instead of a weight or mile based challenge.  December's hard for most everyone - between the weather and the food, it's easy to get distracted.  Often throughout our summer training schedules we lose sight of cross-training and how beneficial it is...hence the birth of the cross-training challenge!  Easy enough to do in your living room - with no special equipment needed!

The Basics:
Commit to a certain number of Squats, Lunges, Situps (Crunches), and an arm exercise for the month of December.  I calculated my reps # by taking my daily reps, mulitplying by 3 (for 3 days a week), and then adding up the weeks between now & the end of the month. 

Kerrie & I are leaving the arm exercise up to you - I'll be doing a mix of Push-Ups, Dips, and Pullovers.

Want in?  Leave a comment here with your numbers - or simply just go add yourself to the spreadsheet!    The spreadsheet has an extra sheet with the weeks in it that will calculate your total goal rep #.  As you enter in your weekly totals, a column will update with your 'To Go' number.
