My New Challenge

Just before I start waffling on about my new challenge, I had to laugh at Isabelle the other day while I was gardening. I was tying the daffodils up now that they're done. She wanted to know why I was strangling the daffodils LOL. Bless her.

Anyway - my new challenge! In attempts to get fit as well as lose weight, I have decided to virtually cycle from John O' Groats to Land's End on my exercise bike. I virtually left John O' Groats this morning from the comfort of my exercise bike in my dining room, accompanied by Bon Jovi. Well, I say accompanied by them, they were playing on the media player on the computer LOL. I managed to cycle 5 miles.

According to the AA Route Planner, John O' Groats to Lands End is 838.7 miles. So having cycled 5 miles, I now have 833.7 miles to go.

I think I'm going to work out the mileage to various major points along the way so that I can say I have cycled from John O' Groats to..... wherever. It would be fun to work out the mileage to where a few of my online friends live and I can drop in for a virtual coffee with them.

It may seem a bit extreme, but I think it's really funny. It's giving me a good giggle. And it's a great way to take the boring monotiny out of pedalling for the sake of it. An online friend has said that she is going to dig out her exercise bike and join me in the virtual cycle. We'll have weekly check-in's to update our progress. Should be a fun way to get fit and lose weight.
