Hey Pdlaw98! (name? feels weird calling you like that)
Welcome to the team! We do have 2 ongoing challenges at the moment and you are welcome to join either one. You have the English channel challenge, in which you'd have to swim 42 miles or the Amazon river challenge which is a shorter course, 24 mils. What we do is to track our daily swimming miles and add them up to our own personal total. For example, "today I've swam 0.9 miles and a total of 12 miles so far." Either one you chose, please introduce your self in the challenge's tread.
Also, I will be launching a couple of shorter challenges soon (will email everyone letting you know how it goes).
Last but not least, there's a tread called "Q&A" in which you can ask or read about more technical stuff. We post our routines there, give advice on how to better techniques, etc.
Well let me know if there's anything I can do for you and/or if I'm missing something. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
