2013 ACF Commuting Challenge (AT) Endomondo

Postby gretaboy » Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:17 pm

Ok since it seemed like noone else had created an Endomondo challenge or any other such challenge for us commuters I have created one on Endomondo. I know there was talk about using other sites like strava or such but since no one has actually done anything I thought I may as well set something up...I need something to push me.

Same deal as 2012...pure commuting kilometres and challenge is from 00:01 01/01/2013 - 23:59 31/12/2013

I've fixed the title and stickied the thread lads and ladies, now have at it!

Tailwind...with your consistency I know I have to put a lead on you as much as I can as soon as I can in order to have any chance....the 1000/1500 lead you got on me last year was simply too much to reel in

##EDIT: I am hoping to put in close to 2k in commuting for Jan, if all goes well.

Thanks for setting this up Gretaboy - back to work next week and hope to try for the first page again. Hope 5000kms is enough to get this.

Happy New year to all - looking forward to the challenge. :D
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

Still mulling this over, recording rides at 3 sites seems excessive.

endomondo is taking a lot longer to include my rides in the challenge. seems to be ~12 hours behind. simonn's seems to be up to date.

I find that if you get the rides in before 9/9:30 or so they get updated pretty quickly...after that it seems to take a long time before it gets updated again
