* CHALLENGE COMPLETED * Girls v Boys Team Skipping : 250...

The Lads .vs. Lasses : 1000km Running Relay will soon end.
..... and we clearly need another girls vs boys challenge.

But what do do ? And how to keep the actual TEAMWORK element ??

Simple !! SKIPPING ..:))....... First team to 250,000 jump rope skips wins!

Each team has a rope … and it’s long enough for two !!

To Start a running leg post the following message :
"GIRL Rope Taken ....."

Then when you finish, post the following message :

"GIRLs Add X Skips
New Total = Y Skips
Rope Free"

* CHALLENGE COMPLETED * Girls v Boys Team Skipping : 250,000 Jumps Challenge rules

  1. You MUST pick up the rope BEFORE you start skipping (Doh !!) - infringements of this rule WILL be DELETED
  2. Start a session with : "GIRL Rope Taken ....." - this stops anyone else in the team skipping
  3. TWO members of the team can skip together BUT that needs to be called out at the start of the session. One of the team should post that its a joint skip with ANOTHER (named person) who should reply in the comment space to confirm.
  4. A joint skipping session must be for the ENTIRE time and skips for both individuals will count
  5. Failure to properly log a joint skip will result in the posts for both people being removed.
  6. In the event that a rope is "Lost"; "Stolen" or eaten by a passing dog. After a period of 1 hour, a new rope can be supplied. No skips will be logged for that 1 hour period.
  7. Only the winning team members can claim a COMPLETE - an then only if they added to the Winning Total
  8. Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

I hadn't thought of finishing it only because so many of us were hurting, lol. I was happy to wake up and walk past the jump rope for a few days :) I forgot what I skipped that last day.

Contributorgold Karen L Woo-hoo! Congrats to the ladies .... skipping to victory!!
I have to say that it was a tight enough challenge and the Tribe has some seriously awesome skippers - male & female. I've been totally blown away by the numbers people have posted. Well done to everyone that took part and kept the fun in this challenge.
PS ... would some of you (you know who you are) PLEASE look after your injuries. Once you're fixed again, we can do a rematch :))

Contributorgold Eddie W Awesome job girls.......I was just checking in to pick the rope back up and to my dismay you have taken the challenge. You have pretty much killed me. No more skipping for a while.

Contributorgold Lisa M @amandajanel, @karenl, @lenac, @joane, @aireal, @laurun01 - girls please help quickly, Bruce has the rope and he'll do at least 6k which will make the boys pretty close. C'mon we only have 6,400 to do - let's do it :)

20140405121050-karenl

Ladies .. not a lot I can do in work unfortunately. Hope to finish early today so will touch base when I get in and see where we are ..... maybe just before 5 all being well ??

20130208121019-lenac

So sorry girls. At work and if I had a rope I would jump on my coffee break but I don't. When I get home I'll check the score and if rope is free I'll take it.
