It seems that Random blog posts are in this week.
Rambling #2 - Interested in a holiday run challenge? Then check out Runners World Run Streak HERE It starts on Thanksgiving & ends on New Years Day. Run at least 1 mile a day & tweet about it using hashtag #RWRunStreak. I soooo wish I could participate!
Rambling #3 - Today I read about the 100 mile swim club over at average girl doing average things. Since I can't do #2 above I thought this may be exactly what I need.
Thinking it through I did a few quick conversions. 100 miles = 176,000 yards, every lap is 25 yards = 7,040 laps. I typically swim 60 - 80 laps (1500 - 2000 yards) per swim. So, on average it will take about 100 workouts to reach 100 miles. Considering I only swim 2 times a week it will take about 50 weeks to swim 100 miles. If I start this Sunday, 11/27, I would be swimming mile 100 sometime around November 12, 2012. 3 times a week has me swimming mile 100 around July 20, 2012. Even if I swam a mile every day it wouldn't be until around March 7th that I swim mile 100. Shit. Really? Not exactly the challenge I was looking for. Right now I am more suited to an 'eat a 100 cookies' challenge. I could have that hammered out in like 2 days tops. Maybe even 36 hours.
