Need a bit of an incentive to keep up your swimming through the winter months? How about taking on the Winter Swimming Challenge! Starting from next week the intention is to clock up some extra winter miles in the pool.
The challenge is to swim 40km from 1 December 2015 to 29 February 2016. All strokes count as do all swimming drills scull / doggy paddle / catch up etc. Sinking down to the bottom of the pool doesn’t! This works out at 3km per week for 13 weeks plus one km and should help to shorten the winter for those participating.
Thanks to Dave Colley for suggesting the idea and coming up with the this spreadsheet Winter Swimming Challenge that everyone can download to chart their progress.
If anyone is interested in creating a league to track your progress against other Stockport Tri members please let us know via our facebook page!
