I have decided to swim the Channel, not actually climb into its cold waters full of detritus, ferry's and large tankers, but virtually via a smartphone app.
I love exercise but need to keep motivated, staying as well as I can be is of course a motivation but I need something else. I have just swam via this app the length of Loch Ness. It took me 4 months and 31,000 metres later I finally made it - I didn't see Nessie - maybe I am the monster. I have chosen the channel next, its about 41000 metres. Once I have achieved that I will head to Suez where I will swim the length of the canal. I expect this to take me just over a year to complete. Oh how I wish there was an app for the treadmill that would allow me to walk exotic places!
Anyway, au revoir mes amies! I'm just 4% into my channel swim so I am barely out of Dover docks! *rubs in the goose grease*
I know that a lot of people can't exercise on here but what do you do to motivate yourselves in everyday life? To get on with the day today things that you just sometimes think isn't worth doing?
