    February Fitness Challenge

    It's time for the February Fitness Challenge again. http://www.swimoregon.org/forms/FFCentry_2013.pdf .I don't know why this isn't on the USMS front page(at least I couldn't find it.)

    I'm re-upping for the silver frog this year (pool closed 5 consecutive days, and I'm not sure I want to travel for another pool). It's a fun event.

    Re: February Fitness Challenge

    OK Allen,

    I think I am going to give this a try. As of last night I swam 95,363 yards (87,200 meters) for the month of January. I am going to swim again this evening, so I will up the yardage (meters) up a little. (I was only trying to do 50 miles for the month so I backed off a little after I hit 50 miles). I will shoot for that 100,000 yard mark.

    Any other challengers?!

    Regards,

    I am going to make neither 100k nor 27/28 days, but will hit 22 days... this has been a fun month challenge and I'm excited to mail the stuff in.

    If I had known about this, I would have recorded the days and yards this month. Oh well, too late now.

    Re: February Fitness Challenge

    Yay! I hit 27/28 days (5 of those days required traveling to a different pool), and my goal yardage, with a long 4200 yds on Feb 28 to make it (I had to imagine swimming the 18 ocean miles from Plymouth to P-town to stay sane).
    But I am not sure I will go for the Gold Frog again.

    I'm bummed I really wanted to do this challenge but was sick (really sick) the first 5 days of February so I figured it was a lost cause. I'll definitely be up for the FFC next year!! WTG to all you achievers of your goals!
