Get the world moving!

Whilst I was studying, my colleagues at work entered me, as part of a team from our department, into a walking challenge.

It’s called the Global Corporate Challenge and I’m part of a team of seven and over 16 weeks I have to wear a pedometer and log the number of steps on the GCC website. There are 14 teams entered from the University of Lincoln.

All seven team members contribute to the team total and the GCC website coverts these steps into kilometers and plots them on a virtual map of the world.

We started on May 19th, and here’s a record of my progress to date:

To date I’ve walked 133,322 steps which equates to 85.33 km since 19 May.

The University are supporting this event by holding a number of activities at the Sports Centre, the first of which was held today. Originally we were supposed to be playing volleyball, but as only 4 people turned up we ended up playing Badmington for 90 minutes!

Next week, it’s Zumba, now that should be a laugh….

In order to promote the event

    There’s something here called the Corporate Challenge. 3+ miles in Central Park. Sadly, I don’t participate. I like the idea of wearing a pedometer and logging your steps into the GCC site. That way, you can see how you do over time….great idea and a way to motivate yourself.
    Have fun!

    • Thanks Marcia, yes it’s good fun. For all those taking part, the University are holding free fitness classes once a week. This week I played badmington for the first time in years, it was great fun!
