Video: If you think you outworked BYU this weekend, you're probably wrong

BYU coaches and players participated in the "Cougar Challenge" this weekend, and from the looks of it, may have pushed it to the limit more than any other team in the country.

If you think I'm exaggerating, consider this; the staff and players completed a quadathalon consisting of swimming, running, biking and hiking, starting at 5:30 am.

It all started with a 1 mile swim in the pool at the crack of dawn, and then group headed to LaVell Edwards stadium for 28 runs to the top of the stadium. Then they hopped on bikes and trekked 25 miles, and finished it all off with a five mile hike to the peak of Mount Timpanogos where they planted the giant "Y" flag at the top of the mountain.

Take a look at the work these guys put in this weekend. Props to the coaching staff for grinding this one out. I got winded just watching it.
