Marci, I'm really glad you're better now and going back to the pool :). I know how it sucks to not be able to do what you love (swimming).

I think there's a topic on the new challenge called enlighs channel in which you can check out things and join the challenge.

Wow I finally got onto the internet! We have had no or super slow connections because of the earthquake in Taiwan. No phones either. I've been swimming but won't start posting until the new challenge. Hope your Christmas was good and that you have a good New Year. Maybe we'll get the internet / phone lines restored in time for the next challenge!

If you could send me the rules and length we should swim to my sparkmail it'd be great! Are we doing this as a team or should we count our miles as individual miles?!

Thanks Marci! My next challenge will be to swim the english channel if that's going to happen (haven't check recently with the other topic in this team) and the walk across the world which is going wonderful.

BTW: How you doing in regards of your health?!

Having a lovely Boxing Day here. We went for a swim in the morning on Christmas and then came in for breakfast, snacky things and a nice turkey dinner. Use the Mayo Clinic's suggestion for turkey dinner which was nice tasting and also low in fat. We did eat treats that we normally don't have so guess that well mean more exercise for the next week :-)

You've done fantastic, Aldana!

I swam 34 laps today. So, 36 extra. a little over 1/2 mile.

That's it for me until January. We're leaving tomorrow to spend the holiday with our oldest daughter.

Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!

Hey girls! today I swan for a short period of time too but no fire alarm involved. We were just lazy, anticipating christmas and the celebrations. I swam for half mile, that puts me at 46.2 miles so far. 3.8 miles to go and I don't see when I'm going to swim since the pool will be closed for a few days :S

Swim was unexpectedly shortened when the fire alarm went off & we had to vacate the pool until the fire dept came to check things out. Fortunately, we didn't have to go outside (it was cold!), but it certainly made us think about what it would have been like if we did!

12/19: swam 20 laps; 68 more to go! (40 miles=2816 laps)

It's good to be back. Just for this week, tho. We're going to spend Christmas week with our oldest daughter and leave on Sat.

Ann, good to see you!

Marci, I hope you get better! This has been going on so long. It must be very frustrating for you, in so many ways, not just swimming!

12/17: swam 72 laps; 88 more to go! (40 miles=2816 laps)

Hi,
Thanks, well done on reaching 42 miles! That's past the goal point (which is always better than giving up once you have got there!!! :D )
The Channel is only 22miles/35.5 km - I am going to see if I can do it in a week!!! :D

Hey I have no problem doing the channel swim as I'm counting miles already for another challenge (Right Linda? ;)) only thing we have to decide how to track things and stuff (I would volunteer but I'm already coordinating the other challenge).

Ok, speaking of swimming, I swam for 1 mile today! that puts me at 42.1 miles; if I keep this mile a day thing I will make it to my 50 miles by new years.

For myself, the date has provided useful motivation. I definitely find myself swimming a few more laps these days as time remaining gets shorter!

Hey, I'm wondering if this is a good idea, let me know!

Is it a good idea to take off the date that this should be accomplished? Does that date hurt or hinder you?

Ok, back in the water today, felt great. 1/2 mile=28 miles.

Aldana, sounds like a great site, you are almost there.

We chatted for a while about what to do after the 40 miles/Jan 2nd, and this site will also be a place to swim, we talked about the English Channel.

Linda, I'm glad you want to join us the only thing you'd have to do is join my team "KAMP Shrinkage" and start posting your WEEKLY miles at the designated topic. Your first post should be your city and state so I can add you to our walk path. Please remember to post your miles WEEKLY since I will only update the map once a week.

Also, if you want to you can introduce your self to the other women at the "Lounge Room", they're pretty nice and supportive.

Aldana, I'll join. I'm already doing something like this with the SparkFit teams, yours is much more feasible. The other one's goal is literally to walk around the world--@25,000 miles. We're only at @1500!

Still celebrating around here, but I did make it to the pool yesterday. Felt good!

11/24: swam 50 laps; 848 more to go! (40 miles=2816 laps)

Today I swam 0.7 miles and a total of 37.7 miles so far.

How's everyone else doing? I'd like to invite you to a challenge I'm currently managing for me 1st group here that is called: "Walk across the world". Basically what we do is walk from Vancouver trough all the cities that the group members live in. Deppending on how many of you join us, we have to walk aprox 5000 miles. I'd like to point out that it is not mandatory to "walk", you can enter miles from your swimming, running, step class (a pedometer might be needed to keep track), and so on. Every mile you work out translates to 1 mile walked. We post our miles once a week in a specific topic and then I update an online map. We haven't started yet but this next week we probably will.

Those of you interested please visit us at this link and let us know: http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_me

I agree. The whole purpose of challenges is motivation. They shouldn't be something we feel bad about or oppressed by.

This challenge is different than others, in that it is a specific distance by a specific deadline. That makes it less flexible and responsive to individual circumstances. So I say, redefine the challenge in terms that makes sense personally.

Much as I appreciate all cheerleading, I would more rather like a way to participate, even if towards an altered goal. That way I get to be a cheerleader too!

That said, I didn't make it to the pool today, although I had 'planned' to. Talk about deadlines, getting ready for company and Thanksgiving is getting in the way. And I still have trouble rushing around 'doing it all', so the pool will have to wait a few days, I think, unless I can somehow get myself up really early in the morning to go.

Vicky, you say you're not gonna make it to the 40 miles challenge and that you lost all motivation to swim... So how about you make this your personal challenge? I mean to go to the pool, class after class; forget the 40 miles I believe that at this point it would be more challenging to get back on track with your swimming (I went trough something similar the past year and I had to use all my strength to get back to the pool).

As for me today I swam 0.9 miles, slowly getting back to my mile/day. That puts me at 36.4 miles so far... I'm almost there guys!!!

Thanks Linda and Vicky for the support!!

The kick in the but method didn't work. I have lost my motivation to swim.
And even if it were to come back tomorrow morning, there's not enough time for me to complete the whole 40 miles until the end of the year.
I'll be ready to swim again when I'll be ready.
In the meantime, I'll be standing here, cheering for Linda and Aldana as they get closer to the finishing line.
Way to go girls!!!
