At the beginning of this week I signed up for the Jack Frost Challenge, accepting the goal of travelling 140 km under my own power in seven days. A great idea.
The winter weather makes it hard to get outside regularly for exercise. This week, the pressure to do 20 km a day, or fall behind on the challenge, got me out for a good skate, ski, or bike ride every day, taking extra detours to maximize the distance covered.
It was great motivation; maybe we need a Jack Frost Challenge more often in winter!
