2010 - The motivation thread...

How about a new thread for the new year to track the mileage we're doing Individually and collectively - see how many times we can get round the world in the year!

Here's how it might work, where each of the following entries is a separate post:

Jan 1st
(user x) 83 km bike
(user x) 83km total
Forum total 83 km

Jan 1st
(user y) 1.5 km swim, 5 km run
(user x) 6.5 km total
Forum total 89.5 km

Jan 2nd
(user z) 30 km bike
(user z) 30km total
Forum total 119.5 km

    If people want to take it up as an idea, let's keep the format really simple - short entries, no signatures.
    Activities to include: swimming, biking (any), running, walking, skiing (cross country only!)

    What do you think?
    We can track against some average distances for fun:
    Marathons = 42 km
    Paris - Roubaix = 280 km
    C2C = 309 km
    LEJOG = 1,407 km
    TdF 2010 = 3,600 km
    Length of Equator = 40,075 km
    Average distance to the Moon = 384,403 km
  • Sounds good to me, not that I do anywhere near as much training as everyone else.

    Fair enough. Mileage and motivation are definitely not the same for me either! Thought it might just be interesting to see what we clock up over a year. I think people might post weekly or less frequently rather than daily anyway, otherwise the thread size will just get silly.

    So, what shall we have as a motivation thread?

    "I took up triathlon and my cock grew an inch"
    "I ate three Christmas dinners but I'm a triathlete so it's allowed" ?
