How did this challenge arise?

“I lost a couple of stone in weight leading up to Christmas and knew I needed to do some exercise to help keep the weight off during 2023 and beyond.

As I’ve had problems with my knees, I knew I couldn’t return to running and having been knocked off my road bike in 2022 was looking for an alternative so I settled on rowing! I was then daft enough to mention my challenge idea at a social event to the chair of the charity,

Michelle and she suggested I raise money for the STF.  Having had a few drinks, I agreed that was a good idea! In the cold light of day, what it represents in time, effort and commitment made me realise that this is a real CHALLENGE.  1,000,000 metres divided by 365 days is only 2,740 metres per day, surely that can’t be too difficult. BUT I started with less than 365 days left in 2023!

  • How many days can I actually get to the gym?

  • What about time away on holiday or away with work with no gym access or if I’m ill?!

Taking all that into consideration I worked out I probably need to do around 3,509 metres

for each gym visit, much more than I first calculated! But I’m up for the challenge!”

We will be update on Nigel’s progress each month so you can see how it is going.

THANK YOU for any support you can provide.
