It sounds like the consensus is already that it has to be a clean 100', and I'm certainly OK for that. (When I asked if I could count the extra feet from my fall, I wasn't actually serious.)

For the record: When I asked if I had to do this more than once, I was (mostly) joking then, too . . . although the question was motivated by observing that I got a whole bunch of feet (maybe 20 out of 30) in what was essentially a controlled fall/stumble . . . which means that I might not get it again for a while.

Not to worry though . . . I'll get 100' for real by Christmas (I think).

Dave

100' without fall.

100' is a LOOONG way; when I get 94', I doubt the extra 6' will be any great barrier.

Since I started training for this challenge, I've gained about 10' to put me around 25'.
I've got a question though - I've been practicing in our wrestling room on a mat...is that going to hamper my long range walking? It doesn't seem to right now but once I get out to 70 or so feet?
Since our room is only 50' long I can't get all 100' in there anyway without turning around - which is damn hard.
I've been working on the pole vault runway which has my 100' mark on it so I know how far I have to go.
So what do you think - stop practicing on the mat or not?
Is it legal for the challenge to do all 100' on the mat?

Rick,

Are you saying that you find it easier to walk on the mat?
I practice on a basketball court floor because I find that it's a lot easier to get a good grip on the hard floor. I'm pretty good at falling without injuring myself, though.

It seems like the mat is easier but I'm not covering that much ground yet - only like 20 feet at a time. I'm fine with falling on the cement and all, it's just more convenient to practice in the wrestling room after we workout. I just don't want to cheat the challenge.

Personally, I don't think they type of floor is an issue. I like using the mat at my martial arts studio. Peraonally, the distance is the issue. Some of us will like mats better, others will like cement. Since I tend to roll out when I fall, I like mats. Keeps the gravel out of my hair!

I just do it out in the back yard (on grass). It's not completely flat, but I figure that's more interesting (and more functional) anyway.

Just have to avoid any potholes created by the dog/kids.

I did a nice 20 foot walk on my lawn this weekend and found a present from my dog under my right hand - mmmmmmm poopy.
